I don't see why raw denim would cost more to make in the first place.

Not bad - they look a little high-rise, but it's hard to tell. At that price, you can't really go wrong.

It's 20 bucks. It is inexpensive, keeps you warm, and hey it might actually even turn out nice once it is faded. If you like it, get it. If you don't, don't....stitching reminds me of Evisu since they too use the orange/yellow.

Can't possibly be worse than Lee or Wrangler or other 20 dollar jeans you can get at Walmart.

Wranglers 13MWZ is actually decent, good slim cut too.

FWIW, fake Thai Levis are just as cheap at the source. Plus they are selvage and fade nicely.




Really, there's nothing to see here. Next...

True. What do a pair of 20 dollar jeans have to do to justify their price? If they didn't crumble to dust after a few weeks you'd have gotten more than what you paid for.

Rustler's are $9.50 at Wal-Mart. There might be cheaper ones, but I don't know of any. Rustlers look a lot better than the ones posted from Overstock.

Go to VF outlets, get a pair of raw wranglers in cowboy cut for $9.99. Take out the stitching or leave it in. Instant steez.
