I got you to click on a review blog, sweet. This isn't some superphillip shit though, so let's talk about some actually interesting things. By the way, the girl is South Korean model, Ryu Ji Hye (she did a great chun-li cosplay you may be familiar with). Should I introduce lovely women with each of these blogs? Perhaps I will. Anyways:
Perhaps everyone already has their favorites brands, but how many have heard of buying them raw? Raw denim basically involves jeans where the fabric is dyed and then not washed -- non distressed jeans. These aren't what you get at department stores, and they're naturally quite expensive (mostly made in Japan). So why recommend them to CAG? Because they're awesome, and there's a chance you may save money in the long run anyways. I used to buy jeans perhaps bi-annually, and in the case of buying distressed jeans there are indeed great and affordable recommendations to make. In fact, I'd confidently recommend Levis to anyone -- specifically the dark wash 514s, or 511s if you're skinnier. Best fit and look you can get at an affordable ~$35-$40, you can find them at most department stores.
But onto the real shit:
Since this fabric comes unwashed, they initially don't come with the fades you see above. Instead, you are basically breaking the fabric in from the day you first put them on, and the fades will come naturally in those areas (such as the honeycomb effect that appears where your knees bend, or even the shape of your wallet you keep in your back pocket). You'll also notice the color is incredibly rich, even after a year of wear. This is because you don't wash these jeans. It's actually advised to not wash them for at least 6 months, any longer depending on your personal preference. This keeps the dye, and helps develop fade patterns. It's like an art project you wear all the time, sweet eh?
There are countless types of raw denim brands out there, and each features a variety of very specific cuts and fits -- chances are you'll find something practically custom made for your build. The picture shown above is of the Naked and Famous brand, and that pair is called the deep indigo Weird Guys. That's what I wear (though the picture is not of me), and I find this brand pretty affordable at ~$150-$175 for a pair. I'm poor as shit by the way, but you know -- I'm not buying jeans for another 3 years.
You can find slim fits, straight cuts, fits that are looser in the thigh that taper down toward the bottom in order to get the popular stacking effect near your feet, as seen above and here as well:
If you want to roll the cuffs up for a classier look and show off the fabric underneath, that's all well and good too. But notice how important jeans are to pretty much any look you're going for. You can wear whatever the hell you want on top and still look like a complete baller with nice looking denim that obviously fits you (shoes also important, but we'll save that for another day). I got a pair of raws because I was getting tired of replacing stretched out jeans that became soft and baggy, and really I was losing more money back then. If you got your own thing going that's great, this isn't some elitist rant, just an option to look at before you drop more money on another pair of jeans. I'm not much of a fashion guy, but I figure everyone agrees that a pair of jeans that fit is a big deal, and a welcome gift.
Tons of great brands ranging from the ~$200 range (Naked and Famous and APC shown respectively in the images above), to $1000+. Be smart about it. Look for deals.
Every fit is different, do your research. A lot of forums (yes there are forums dedicated to raw jeans) will have a lot of valuable information about this. A 31 waist isn't a 31 waist in another brand.
Make sure that shit fits. Doesn't matter if you're buying raw or some Levis at Kohls, your pants should hug you to the point where a belt should feel unnecessary. There's a difference between tight jeans, and fitted jeans -- but you definitely don't want baggy.
Long inseam means more stacks on the bottom, find the right amount. You can always get things hemmed.
Get a nice pair of shoes. Converse at $30 -- will look great.
Dark jeans are the most versatile, good place to start.
Don't worry about small stains, they're just jeans bro.
If it smells, wash it. Don't use a dryer (or a washing machine, really).
You'll find what you're looking for on the web. If you live in a big city like chi-town, sf, or nyc, then you're probably already familiar with these and the stores that sell them.
Oh and by the way, there's a review for Dragon Age II in the CAG review section. And since I wouldn't advertise personal blog sites here, the image below will take you to the CAG forum location instead:
"It was on a strong platform Bioware constructed Dragon Age: Origins on – a game of meaty action, rich lore, and nail biting drama. So when players start the sequel, the anxiety understandably sets in."
Look forward to more random recommendation blogs with reviews tacked on in the future, I hope these are at least interesting if not helpful. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is next. Previous reviews are linked in my sig.
