Normal for denim to become "fuzzy"?

This is only day 4 of a new pair of dry denim and already i'm getting "fuzz" all over the jean. It looks like tiny, tiny dog hairs all over it. I didnt think this was normal, but I did experience it with my 501 STFs. However, these are much nicer jeans (RRL), so I expected better.

Should I be worried or concerned?

Most one wash denim comes pre-fuzzy. If you put your jeans in the dryer it also makes them fuzzy. I don't know if that's what's going on with your jeans though.

the fuzz wears off when they get worn in. some jeans are singed at the factory to remove the fuzz. Nudie is an example of such a practice.

i think its kind of like twisted seams... until you have jeans that do it, you think somethings wrong, but after you have some you think somethings wrong if you dont see it.

smooth denim with straight seams make me feel weird.

Yea, for the first couple washes.. but it still goes away when the denim gets really beat up. My 5EPs were uber hairy for months 2-5 or so but after they had faded to maybe 20% at the lowest and 85% at the highest, they were only hairy in some of the regions that see very little abrasion (such as around the shins).
