Raw jeans are overrated. Really, really, overrated. At least here on SF. I like the clean look, and I like the well worn in look. I only need one of both, not an entire closet full of nearly identical raw barely worn in denim. To each their own, but with the kind of money that's going into so many pairs they can be used else where (non-denim pants, outerwear, jackets, shoes... so many options).
