So all the denim I have is raw/dry denim or grey selvedge. It seems like all the decent brands focus on raw denim (or grey or black) I am looking for examples of quality distressed denim (not overly gaudy looking like old school old school DIesel) but various colors from lite distressing to what apc's look like after 6 months wear. Brands that came to my mind were:

Acne (i have tried on some of their non raw and I am not to keen on the denim weight/washes)
Nudie (again didnt really like the denim texture and weight of the non dry nudie denim)
Jean Shop maybe? dont know much about these?

So what other brands/washes are out there that you own or want to own, and are not raw/dry/grey/black denim? pics or links would also be helpful.

Nada.


But, to be somewhat helpful, 5EP, Kicking Mule, LVC, Corpus, Earnest Sewn have some nice pre-distressed denim. Among the Japanese brands, Eternal and sometimes Edwin do a good job.

Japanese designers take pride in their distressed denim. Mr. Olive, Marka, Factotum, and Hysteric Glamour will be some of the best for great washes and quality selvedge denim. This is my current favorite which is from Man of Moods, http://shop.atsuitokyo.com/scripts/p...detail&SKU=601. I own a pair and love the feel.

Hysteric's Nobu model is made every season, the best damaged jean I have seen for a low rise cut. PRPS makes a similar style in a baggy cut, I think Denim Bar carries it.

well it depends on what you mean by good vs. bad. I meant it in terms of fit, quality, and overall denim. I am sure a good amount of people on the forum think all pre-distressed denim is "bad" in terms of not liking it.

For the most part I am one of those people but I am getting sick of only rocking raw/grey/black denim. I want to pick up a few pairs of 'distressed' denim (meaning anything other then raw/grey/black).

Dior puts out good and interesting washes, though I'm not too huge into the distressed ones. I like their overdyeds, wax coateds, etc...

Though a completely different fit, I think Notify does the best coated denim out there, for a lot less money. Too bad none of them fit me. Also, Saw some interesting looking Helmut Lang coated jeans, though they are wayyyyy too tapered for my liking.

i think somet has some really cool looking "washes". they actually use some type of chemical and do it all by hand. its kinda like they paint the fades on but the chemical reacts with the indigo. idk where they sell them though. and they would probably be upwards of 400 bucks
