That’s a great fit! Just remember that they will slightly shrink unless you have them dry-cleaned.

Here’s the funky thing about raw denim… You’re supposed to wear your jeans every day for 1 year without washing. Sounds crazy as hell right? Apparently everyone swears by it. And… I’ve seen the fade pics to prove it. There’s a few tricks to keep them from getting too nasty. But yeah, these denim heads swear by it.

I’m actually more worried about stretching… but maybe that’s unfounded. Heavier denims shouldn’t stretch THAT much.
