7 Pairs of Low Rise Raw Denim Jeans

7 Pairs of Low Rise Raw Denim

7 Pairs of Low Rise Raw Denim

Designed to sit on the hip, thus looking slimmer and more modern, the low-rise jean has become probably the most popular among raw denim fits recently.

As fits have moved away from the higher rise Levi’s cuts of old, the modern low-rise has taken over the market. Here we illustrate seven pairs of low-rise raw denim throughout the raw denim quality spectrum.

The rise of a pair of jeans can be easily measured from crotch to the waist, and typically runs in the vicinity of 10 inches on a low rise pair.

    definitely forgot the Skulls 5010XX…especially since the SDA 103 isn’t really low rise…

  • Kevin Zentner

    Also forgot the Paul Rose slims which notoriously have a low rise and tiny fly.

    Low rise.
    Good grief.
    Why, just why. You do realise low rise is for women right?
    Simple test. Drop your pants. See that? Hooray you’re a man! Act like it.
    Unless of course you’re some clueless dumb-arse who’s yet to discover himself teenager. Then I guess you’ll just reach into your closet and pull out your spray on spandex stretch denims and wear them slung below your buttock cheeks anyway.

    thanks for this blurb. I’m thin enough that something like a 501 on me looks like a 559 on most people. I’ve been having trouble finding high quality denim with a similar fit to a levi’s 511, but this is a start. Most of the time I just compare measurements.
