A word of warning, when you buy your first pair of raw denim jeans, watch out for the blue. There's a lot of excess indigo dye in raw denim. It gets everywhere. If you wear white underwear they'll be blue afterwards. A white couch is the worst if you sit on it. Your hands will be blue after a day, and especially white shoes. So watch out with them. After a while, especially after the first wash, it gets better.
