I am a raw denim fan. Particularly raw Japanese denim. These are my favorite pair of jeans, made by Pure Blue Japan. They are constructed of a remarkably thick cotton that was dyed while it was still thread, then woven loosely to get this beautifully uneven texture and rich indigo color.
I've owned these jeans for a little over a year, and have never washed them. Every now and then I hang them outside for a couple days to get some air. When I bought the jeans, they were a uniformly deep indigo that you can still see in some areas. All of the fading and combing, whiskers and pronounced neps (the bits of thread that stick out here and there due to the "chatter" of the loose weaving process) came from wear.
All patina everything.
