What is Raw Denim?

What is Raw Denim?

If you haven’t heard of raw denim, you are missing out on perhaps the biggest trend in menswear in the last decade. Raw denim is more of a movement than a fashion trend. Born of DIY culture and eco-friendliness, raw denim jeans and other goods are all about customization and quality. Basically, raw denim is untreated and unwashed after the dying process.

The end result is super sturdy, long-lasting denim that you can break in and shrink to your own personal preferences. Plus, you can create your own natural fading and distressing over time for a one-of-a-kind look. Raw denim doesn’t only come in the form of jeans. This jacket with […]
