I had an interesting conversation with a friend this weekend regarding raw denim (a.k.a dry denim). This friend mentioned that she's looking for a pair of jeans to invest in. Something she'll splurge on and not have to replace for a long time. She's a fan of raw denim which makes sense if you're looking for jeans that you'll break in to conform nicely to your shape and that will last the test of time. I've never worn raw denim so I'm curious if you have an if you wouldn't mind sharing your experiences with it. Do you have a brand/style that you'd recommend? Tips for breaking them in?
Wondering what's up with the hefty price tags? I chose three options made in the USA. Check out these other options for under $100.
