    I'm new to denim, and over the past year I had been looking for a good pair of jeans. I was reading up on the whole selvage, raw denim, and using certain types of looms, and decided I want in on that. I was originally going to go with a pair from Denim Design Lab (are they any good?) but had just been sitting on the idea.

    A friend told me to go for a pair of slim-straight cut jeans, presumably because I'm fairly short and don't have long legs. I imagine anything too baggy would make that seem worse.

    I just moved to Europe, and saw a pair of Levis 511 "slim fit" jeans at a TK Maxx for what seemed like an alright price and I really liked the look of them. They're fairly dark blue, and have a white and blue Levis label. I rolled up the leg and it seems to be selvage. It has a tag that says to wear as long as possible before washing (does this mean it's raw denim?) There's also a code that says 839943 AO.

    Did I get anything decent?
