PRPS RAW Denim Question (need answered ASAP please!!)

I'm thinking about purchasing some PRPS Jeans called "6 Month Raw Rambler"

Here is a pic of them: <a href="http://s989.photobucket.com/albums/af14/Akatsukialex/?action=view&current=2k782_product_image_medium.jp g" target="_blank"><img src="http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/af14/Akatsukialex/2k782_product_image_medium.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>


I was wondering if these are still considered to be a true pair of RAW denim. If I wear these for another 6 months (or longer) without washing them, will they have the same effect in the machine like another pair of raw denim?

Also, does anyone know how Rambler fits compared to Barracuda? I'm usually a 31 in Barracuda... would I be the same for Rambler?

Let me know, thanks!

There is no reason to be posting this multiple times. It is a holiday weekend, lots of people aren't around. When someone who knows the answer reads this, they'll respond. In life not everything can be on your time schedule

I'm half-way across the world and I'm not American. Sorry I forgot it was your holiday.

These are not completely raw, hence the name "6 month raw rambler". You can obviously see that there is a wash to it. But this DOES NOT mean that it won't fade if you wear them over a period of 6 months. All jeans fade with time.

^ what he said.

They've been washed/distressed/intentionally faded, so they are not raw. Raw would mean that nothing has been done to the fabric aside from the sewing and construction into a pair of jeans.

I have the exact same jeans in the Fury fit, which is a tapered fit. I was also wondering about this. I'm somewhat disappointed by what I read from the posts. I had been hoping they wouldn't fade so significantly afterward because I love the way these jeans look. I wouldn't want them to fade even more. I guess I won't be going for pre-distressed denim at higher prices anymore. I'd rather break in a nice, new pair of raw denim.
