Every man needs a good pair of denim, but this is not a requirement that is very easy to meet. As an active man I have to find a pair of jeans that fits me and allows me to go through all my activities like longboarding or walking for a long time without having them to fall apart. So after desperately cruising between different brands of jeans and getting close to desperation, I got more into raw selvedge denim. Why do I think that raw selvedge denims are better than the regular ones? Well for a handful of reasons.
First, the raw selvedges are more resistant than the non-selvedge denims. The selvedge denims are made based on the old standard of production. In the 1990s the demand for demand increased and companies switched to a faster cheaper and less demanding way of production (more details about selvedge production on http://www.rawrdenim.com/2013/06/what-makes-japanese-denim-so-special/).
Another good point beside the way they are crafted if the fact that they are personable. Selvedge denims are meant to be worn almost everyday through everything. That allows the fabric to stretch and fold to the curve of the body and overtime create a pair of jeans that are cut for you and also and also very comfortable. In addition to the cut that feels better the dye gradually wears off as you wear to give you some very accurate and authentic fades. Also maintaining raw selvedge denim is something very easy to do, just wear it a lot. If they get musty, no biggy! Just put them in the freezer to kill get rid of the smell or send them for a dry cleaning. To sum up I switched form regular jeans to raw selvedge denims because I’m lazy when it comes to take care of clothes and I like beautiful durable item.
