    Since Forever 21 now carries both men and womens clothes, I saw both in person and on line a pair of jeans. I think that they're raw or possibly one wash, but due to my crappy resolution on my laptop, I can't tell and also I can't spot the difference in person. Can anyone help me out.

    Also they're cheap.

    Maybe, maybe not. I'm cheap like that, but not cheaper the Cheap.

    cant tell anything from the site. But you should go and try them as you seem interested.

    I'm pretty sure Forever 21 gets a lot of their clothes from very small manufacturers in Korea. There are a lot of interesting makers in korea. Clothing design is a subculture there.

    Yeah I was thinking about it, I really don't care about what people think anymore, some of the stuff that they have on the online store looks pretty good.

    just so you know, those jeans look like they are garment dyed (i think their use of "overdye" is misleading; they are using the term OVER as in "in excess" instead of "on top"; there is no indigo involved; the black jeans are probably dyed to the core (i don't think they have fine control when pieces are garment dyed) and the "cream" jeans are probably undyed denim (hence the "bull denim" in the description); that's a big reason why the jeans are so cheap----they just make the jeans from bull denim and either dunk 'em in black dye for the blacks, leave 'em be for the "cream"

    that said, the matter of whether they are washed or dry is moot. they will not fade as you probably want them to. (but everything fades, even our sun)

    I feel like ddml does a good job justifying the high end of the streetwear market. The question: is he trying to convince us, or himself? [​IMG]

    Forever 21 stuff generally sucks.

    I got lucky on a tri-blend v-neck and a western button up, everything else by them sucks
