    Any info on this? Don't recognize the tag or plane design. Jacobson's was a pretty old department store in the area that went under in the early 2000's. Tag seems quite a bit older and has an original price of $65

    no it's just unwashed denim in it's original state, either literally just off the loom or more commonly with some finishing. sanforized and stf can both be raw.

    you'll know cause it'll be very stiff and feel coarse cause the sizing is still present. and of course the indigo will be uniform and dark.

    yours are clearly worn, washed, faded, loved. but still dope!

    Well, raw is kinda uncomfortable because of the denim being starched. I think 634s are one wash. I actually prefer one wash.

    LOL [​IMG]Sadly lots of photos were taken that night. If I ever want to run for public office, I'm fucked.

    @AlexJ1100 I think it says "bell-matic under that hour hand. If so, it has an alarm complication. That's a $200 bill on eBay. ... But better yet it's a nice Japanese watch you should keep if you like its look at all.

    Not sure if this is the correct thread, but is this Canali suit worth it for $600?
