Why would anyone choose a rinsed denim over a raw denim?

    Because bleeding indigo everywhere sucks. I put up with it when I first got into wearing raws, but nowadays I can't be bothered.
    because i don't want indigo all over my shit
    Speaking of raw jeans (Nudies in this case), I've not had any indigo bleeding problems.

    Why would anyone ever choose a red shirt over a blue shirt?

    Exactly. Raws are great, rinses are good in their own way, solid black jeans are best of all but there's no reason to wear only one kind of something.

    ^ my raw Sugarcanes probably bled the most of all the pairs I tried, still spread indigo everywhere even after a soak

    +1. How else would I keep my CPs crispy white?

    wild. every pair of dark jeans i've owned in my life bled on shoes. what are these magic rinsed/one wash jeans you own that don't bleed indigo on sneakers?

    i like washed. never got into raw. i prefer them to be a little lighter in color than raw or have a greyish blue color.

    i'm looking into something this light in color for summer.

    I drop my jeans when visiting the toilet. So, indigo on my shit is never a problem.
    I understanding waiting months prior to a wash, but this just seems extreme.

    Because no matter what I do to a pair of raw denim jeans, they are never going to look as cool as my prewashed Diors.
