5 Pairs Of Black Raw Denim (Part 1 of 2)

The standard image of jeans is good ol’ indigo-dyed, 5-pocket jeans. But not all jeans are standard “blue jeans” (e.g. Naked & FamousPomegranate-dyed jeans). In today’s post, we’d like to shed a bit of light into the rather dark world of black raw denim.

Known for fading differently from traditional indigo jeans due to the difference in dye, there’s been increased interest in black jeans lately. In no particular order, we present 5 awesome pairs of black raw jeans.
