Hi all, I'm after some raw denim jeans - any recommendations in terms of brands or shops?
I like slim fit, not skinny ones. If there's something out there with a bit of stretch that would suit me.
I'm in Manchester city centre

Just head to Oi Polloi and ask the chaps in there. They'll have plenty of APC/LVC/Edwin/Nudie in stock and a number of the more exotic brands.

most raw denim will stretch with wear, which is I presume what you mean? Not topman style stretch denim? Try a new standard if you're not after skinny. They will stretch out in the waist so usually best to go a size down initially.

As above oi polloi will be your best bet

Thanks illwill, went into Selfridges and 7 for all man kind and non of them had a clue what raw denim was.
I'll be over at Oi Polloi tomorrow - never heard of it before but looks decent from the website.

The guys in Carnaby store are sound. I'd also look into the Petit Standard Stretch in the apc store round the corner and size accordingly for fit. Worth a look if only to speak to the insanely gorgeous french girl working there.
