An Overview On Raw Denim For Women


Rawr Denim posted up a beginner’s guide to raw denim for women, including some brands to start you off, where to buy them, and a quick explanation on why it’s so hard to find women’s selvedge jeans:

“Many brands from all over the world now produce raw jeans specifically for women. Only a few of those jeans are made from selvedge denim, though. Men’s jeans are cut with a straight outseam, whereas women’s jeans are typically cut with a curve so as to provide a better fit. This makes it hard to cut women’s jeans along the straight edge and keep the selvedge.”

Check out the post and find some women’s raw denim to start you off!

1. Say what? Turns out scratch-n-sniff jeans are actually a thing, courtesy of Naked & Famous Denim. For $150, the men in your life can wear denim covered in raspberry-scented micro-capsules that release when scratched. Yum, yum.

2. Workers specializes in vintage-inspired reproductions, and their latest collection includes a denim tote that was inspired by a pair of Hercules overalls. It’s unexpected, and pretty excellent.

3. Gisele Bundchen looks smoking in the spring/summer 2012 Versace Jeans ad. Sure, she’s topless–but we don’t mind!

4. Wrangler has a new campaign video showcasing its youthful spring/summer line. Watch out! It might give you vertigo.

5. With the help of model Krystal Glynn and filmmaker Taylor Steele, denim brand OneTeaspoon created this visually haunting short film of a girl who encounters a denim-wearing clan in the Australian forests.

Naked & Famous’ Spring 2012 Mens Denim Collection: Raw Denim, Anyway You Want It


Naked & Famous‘ Mens Spring/Summer 2012 line is sticking to its roots with authentic, top-quality, raw denim, but while increasing the options you have to get your hands on it. They have taken their skinny, mid-rise, and tapered cuts and released them in new colors such as red and wine, constructions, and surfaces. So now you can really find the pair of jeans that is best and most comfortable for your body, and still know that you’re wearing some of the most rare and unique denim, straight from Japan. What we’re really jealous of are the raspberry scented low-rise jeans—we mean, amazing denim that smells amazing too? Yes please. Besides the colored denim, they also are offering slim-fitted button downs to patch their red denim palette, along with a crisp, dark-wash jean jacket which is a definite must-have if your guy still hasn’t caught on to this classic trend yet.

dd-justin-bieber-acne-denim-james-franco-1

1. Despite the drama surrounding boy wonder Justin Bieber as of late, he seems to be keeping it cool in terms of attire. He was spotted in an Acne denim jacket recently that we think makes him look (slightly) more grown up.

2. James Franco is slated to shoot and direct the next 7 For All Mankind campaign, which would make him… the most accomplished sexy young man in Hollywood? Yeah, we think that sounds about right.

3. We love a well-placed back pocket detail on men’s jeans. It’s easy to go wrong with pockets, but the white stripes on this pair of Momotaro medium wash jeans is spot-on.

4.We’re all fawning over this review of the Mih Jeans Marrakesh Kick Flares in black velvet in the office this morning. These look like some seriously comfy (and stylish) fall jeans.

5. Naked & Famous guru Brandon Svarc visits the GQ fashion closet and talks about the craziest jeans he’s designed so far. Glow in the dark, anyone?

2. True Religion is releasing a limited edition pink colored skinny jean for Breast Cancer Awareness this month.

3. AG Jeans is doing awesome, even in the face of the weak economy. Their sales are up more than 30% since last year.

5. Rawr Denim has a great Q&A with Naked & Famous’ Brandon Svarc—apparently he used to love import Japanese cars until The Fast & The Furious came out and “ruined it”.
