    I agree on R&B. Had forgotten that mine were sale-bought. Will remove.

    LVC hovers just at that 200 mark (like $192 for many of them). Thought it would be worthwhile since it's hard to find.

    If any of those others are at or close to the 200 mark at retail, it may be worth including. Do you think? Maybe we should stay as true as possible to the 'sub-200' statement?


    Anything can go on sale, i think we should stick to the budget friendly at retail price idea.

    A lot of stuff goes on sale more often than others though. Usually when I browse through DenimBar, KMWs are 50% off a lot of the time. W&Hs also seem to be on sale a lot throughout various stores. That should also be kept in mind

    There are also a ton of cheap Selvedge options on k-loop. IDK how good any of them are, though.
    Doubtful anyone would want to suggest those, at that rate we might as well start with DC, Sean John, Ecko, etc., etc. since they all have raw/selvedge offerings now days

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    I really like the look of the 3sixteen jeans shown. I may have to save up and get a pair.

    A friend of mine told me he just got some raw Lucky brand jeans for around $70 on sale. I don't know if they are selvage or not, but that's a killer price.

    Julian Red Cali's, just don't buy off their site. Fever.se has'em for $130'ish. They can be hard to find.
    Very tts and anti-fit

    It's not a rule, but I think it's a pretty good guideline to be wary of raw/selvedge denim that comes from a company that isn't primarily focused on denim.

    Someone mentioned Left Field. I found some for $99 but its hard to tell if they are raw, or what the fit is like. I don't know anything about this store, just googled left field to see what they were and this is one that popped up. Anyone have more info on these jeans? Great price if they are decent. (coin pocket seems a bit weird)

    Hopefully you can add TOJ soon, but I am not sure. Maybe wishful thinking, they will be made in Okayama from legit denim with lots of details without looking over-detailed, in small batches, but I won't jack the price up on them, so maybe...

    I'll add it of course, but I think we'd all love to see your own thread just for those, brother! Corpus and Glory added.

    Thanks so much for making this topic. Makes a newb like me not have to work to hard find something else besides APC to wear and for under 200$ you're a life saver, should be pinned. Please continue to add any more brands you can find.

    Deus Ex Machina has a straight leg selvage for under $130 i believe.
