North Carolina-based Raleigh Denim has come a long way from sewing jeans in their living room, but the company itself maintains its humility and authenticity by staying local and employing people from their hometown. For Spring-Summer 2012, you can expect no less than Cone Mills-loomed raw selvage jeans (red chain-stitch hemmed, of course), with an expanded offering of light colored jeans in cement, gray and natural. Their Grass colored jean is the only non-traditional hue in the mix. Featuring mostly a collection of straight leg jeans such as their Thin Fit, the collection is characteristically clean and slim fitting. If you need something with a bit more room, you might try their Work Fit, a regular fit straight leg.
