Hey all! First post here so i'l explain myself briefly. I've been looking into getting a pair of raw jeans because the idea of breaking them in, the fades, the bad ass combs, etc sounds really neat to me. plus they look awesome haha. I met a guy up at college here who wheres nudies and stronghold or something but he told me about it and im interested.
Im looking into either a pair of the gap raw selvedge skinnys OR the Urban outfitters unbranded. Based on what was said here and obviously the price. Its not that im cheap honestly, but if its my first pair i see nothing wrong with shooting a lil low on the "name brand scale" as long as i love the fit and i can dig the looks. Also the fact that maybe i dont end up liking it or wearing them that much that kinda thing.
So as a "startup" pair of decent denim which would you choose? At 98 bucks the gaps arent too bad and at 78 the UO's brand is even more appealing lol. But honestly without spending over $100 (which i know is unreal if we're talking about 3/4 of the brands mentioned on here ha) which could give me a good startup venture to see how i like it?
