Help me find some nice raws!
So my guy's birthday is coming up and while he didn't know about raw denim just a month ago, I've introduced him to the idea and he loves it. He's the kind of guy that likes making stuff (wood, metal, leather) and wears only two pairs of jeans (that are identical, except for straight/bootcut leg) and just rotates them.
I told him that raws would be perfect, described the reason why you wear them, and he loves the idea of creating his own wash. The words "if I want rips I will put them in by myself" comes out of his mouth a lot, so I think this will be a perfect gift.
Now it comes down to which brand and what cut to get him. His favorite pair of jeans that we tried on at the Diesel store were Vikers in 882v, which were a stretch pair. He liked them better than all the other Viker washes because the stretch pairs seemed to have a SLIGHTLY slimmer leg. Diesel Viker 882v Jeans for men
He tends to be a size 28/29 in the waist but he has thicker legs (he has a swimmer body)…wondering what the sizing is for raws- I know you're supposed to get a smaller size and let it stretch, right? We'll be going to Selfedge to try on the jeans, and I'm looking for a slightly lower price point since it'll be his first pair.
