J.Crew has been a huge force in the menswear industry, especially in recent years. Producing solid basics and casual menswear staples, it’s unsurprising that raw denim made its way onto J.Crew’s shelves. And, they’re actually not bad. Case in point – the 484 Japanese Selvedge Raw Indigo. These were submitted by Denny Mitchell of Mexico City and they make a great example.
After two and a half years of consistent wear, they’re holding up well with some decent fades to show for it. They’ve achieved a beautiful mid-blue shade after just two washes and the denim shows off some vertical streaking with fades nearing pure white at the knees. So far, the repairs have been to the pocket bags, so it seems these jeans have much more fading to do before they’re put to pasture.
