Wide Leg Raw Denim Jeans – A Buyer’s Guide

After about a decade of slim and slim-tapered jeans ruling the selvedge roost, straight and wide-leg raw selvedge denim jeans are becoming more and more popular again, and hem openings seem to be getting wider across the board.

Seeing as we’re coming out of a leg-width recession of sorts, not every raw denim brand makes a true wide-straight leg jean. Sure, some label their widest cut as ‘wide’, but in reality, it’s just a straight-leg jean that’s wider than their other offerings. With this in mind, we thought we’d put together a list of the truly wide-straight raw selvedge denim jeans out there, so you can get the width you’re looking for.

Whether you’re used to wearing wider jeans and want a list of top-notch wide-leg options out there, or you’re looking to switch up your style and get hip to some wide boys – this guide is for you. We’ve put together a list of most of the truly wide raw selvedge denim jeans on the market, each adhering to the Heddels philosophy of well-made goods that you will want to wear forever.

If there’s a pair of wide-leg raw selvedge denim jeans you think should be on this list, let us and the community know in the comments or over on our H+ members ‘ discord channel. We’ll keep this list updated with pairs we believe belong in the in the guide.
