Dry Denim for my g/f

I was about to purchase my first dry denim for myself and I my g/f expressed some interest in getting a pair. Her birthday is this weekend and I want to hook her up. What should I do? They sell Nudies for men at Nordstroms, but not for girls.

Is there any place we can go to so she can try them on? We are in Houston. She probably has a dozen or so premium denim, so she's not a stranger to nice jeans.

If there is no place we could walk into and buy, where should I look to order online? If the ladies(or guys) here have any suggestions let me know. I could use some help. TIA!

My GF likes Nudies Tight Long John but they are a raw stretch which doesn't produce the same results as 100% cotton IMO.

she found a pair she likes. What do y'all think of these?

G-Star Raw Elect Bootcut Jeans in Raw :: tobi

Are these dry or does "raw" mean the wash?

Those most likely are a rinse wash.

Only a very small amount of Gstar jeans are raw. Those are probably not dry. Sling and Stones, Nudies. Do you have a Barneys Co op nearby? They had women's Nudies at mine.

I'll go look. For some reason our COOP is closing. Maybe they will have some on sale.

Order Sling and Stones from Self Edge. I'm not a huge fan of the fits from the Japanese companies.

Blue in Green Soho has PBJs in the $190 range. They have Samurai Lindas for approx $300.

I have two pairs of Sling & Stones, they don't seem to wear quite like guy's jeans (but that's probably more about me than anything ) but they fit better than other brands I've tried.

(These are pairs from years ago. The slim pair fits fine after I took them in. The "straight" pair is huge. I just looked them up and see they now have different cuts, so this is perhaps irrelevant. )

All of the PBJ's on blue in Green say "one washed"
will they still fade correctly?

Yes they will. It's just getting some of the shrinking out of the way. Check this thread for pics of PBJ evo.
