Just a informal poll:

How many people out there are wearing their raw denim as they bought them (i.e. not trying to achieve any distressing or personalized processing)? The past couple of years especially has shown that dry raw denim is style onto itself, and people are into preserving the indigo. I've rinsed a couple of my pairs rof dry raw (APC & Acne - the more dressy jeans) right away to do exactly this. However, I don't know that many people are doing this with their Nudies....

I was just curious to know what the forum's thoughts are on keeping them they are. And if so - which cut you'd do it with.

Keep em raw or not?

I wear my jeans til they smell so bad that I can't be near people anymore :P
Then it's time for the first wash. I do not try to keep my dry jeans clean or something; I want them to be personal.

But If you wear jeans you cannot let them stay raw? They will stress out? And if you wash the will fade... right?

Yes

Disgusting :P But, I'm not that kind of person who would wear a pair of jeans several years without getting a new pair. It's economical but I wouldn't manage that... I want new models and fits all the time.

But then it will take many many years til your nudies are totally destroyed..

I think worn selvage is really rad...more interesting and more fun to work with and watch evolve. But...pure raw jeans can look very slick and clean so it's nice to have a pair around.
