The part 2 section I would pass on since they aren't known for denim.
i am pretty sure you can get some used APCs for less than 100. I would get the 21oz un branded and pay a little more. 
If you search and wait long enough you might be able to get almost new denim for 100

If you live somewhere near where there's a Barney's, they sell n&f mostly, not so much apc, some other raw denim brands that range near or less than $100. So check locally also!

I saw Naked & Famous on The Hundreds blog circa 2009, went out and bought a pair. Weird guys are great for an intro into raw denim, if you get on Gilt you can usually find them on there for $90ish. They're sanforized, which means the denim is pre-shrunk prior to making the jeans - they'll stretch out after wearing, but they won't shrink much, if at all, smaller their original size.

If you go with something unsanforized to start, go to a shop that knows denim, they can help you with estimating how much a pair will shrink.

If you live near SF, LA, NY or Portland you should stop by Self Edge. They have a good selection, and my advice is to go for a good pair as your first.

Nordstrom has a pretty good selection as well

Old thread but il throw my 2 cents for others - go all out on your first selvedge. Becuase either way you are committing a year to them at least - nbhd do a really nice standard raw denim for around £160, edwin's ed-55 with the 13.5oz denim are also really strong. I'm into back pocket designs and nice details, little details go a long way when you wear something everyday. I guess A.P.C is a pretty standard denim but its not heavy enough for me...
