    Those Aprill77 Records look like a nice fit. I’ve never heard of this brand before.

      They’re another French brand, similar to A.P.C. but all of their clothing is rock & roll inspired.

        Thanks! It would be nice to have a post charting the raw denim map of the world focused on the independant denim brands (that are not widely known) and what locations they are based in like Roy, Raleigh Denim, Momotaro and Flat head and so on.

          That’s not a bad idea. I’ll give it some thought, for sure.

    the black APC’s are sanforized?  i had no idea.  this begs the question, why are they called raw?

    • Anonymous

      Sanforized denim does not necessarily mean the jeans are not raw. The indigo is still in its untreated state and will come off with abrasion, but the cotton fibres have been treated such that they won’t shrink any further. There are better, more detailed explanations in the Rawr Denim Dictionary.

    I think you made a couple mistakes on the Naked and Famous Black Selvedge:

    - They are sanforized
    - They cost a lot less than $325.00

    And that fit pic looks terrible! I can say from firsthand experience that they look a lot better than than when fit correctly.

    • Grazfather x

      Agreed. That picture makes the pants look horrible.

      Yeah, they definitely are sanforized…and are way less than $325

      Thanks though, Rawr, I just picked up a pair of Naked & Famous Black Selvedge (Weird Guys) because of these articles.

    I just got some unbranded brand black denim and they stink of sulfur like crazy. I’ve tried to soak them a few times in vinegar but the smell persists. Does anyone care to share their experience taming odoriferous sulfur black jeans? I would appreciate any suggestions that will get rid of the smell, not just cover it up. Thanks!

      @67200855d8886f9eacdfc4bcc59df241:disqus Sounds pretty extreme and we’d have a few q’s first. Could you shoot us an email at info@rawrdenim.com and we’ll chat more? Thx!
