Alright, alright. I know how uncool it is for me to come in here, introduce myself, comment on a single map and then start the least-relevant topic to start a thread about, but I'm a bit of a maverick like that.

Do any of you own raw denim jeans? I'm looking at a pair of Sling & Stones Delilah bootcuts or some Naomi slims, but I do have a few questions about raw denim. I won't bother with the actual question until someone replies. If no one steps up, no one has wasted their time.

Mellisah, not that I'd wouldn't want to have any kind of conversation with a pretty, 24 year old Aussie girl, but I have no knowledge of fashion or brand name jeans whatsoever!

I know that you put your legs in to the top part down each leg and must insure the buttons are on the front - that's about all I know about jeans! :P

If I understand Vandy's links information... "Raw" denim is just denim that hasn't been artificially faded or worn...

This is what I always buy... but mostly because it's just a practical thing. Why buy something already halfway dead. Especially when the regular stuff is cheaper, I can get away with it in the semi professional job I've got, and it last longer.
