Anyone have these? How much will they shrink when I eventually wash them? Should I soak em before my first wear? Sorry for all the questions but these are my first pair of raws :D

oh also, are the alexei sanforized or unsanforized?

They're not sanforized. So they will shrink if you end up washing them, at least one size, probably more depending on the kind of water you have.

I can't really tell you whether to soak them first or not, it's a personal preference. Soaking your raw jeans shrinks them about a half size, but then they will loosen up with wear anyway so you'll end up in the same place. If they fit fine as they are, I would suggest you don't soak them.

To me the whole point of buying raw jeans is to wear them - all the soaking and washing is just being fancy. If you're looking to fade them or break them in faster, then you can soak them first; also if you live in a very rainy place and you're likely to get them wet away, then you should probably soak them to minimize their bleeding all over your shoes the first time you wear them in the rain.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm not gonna soak 'em. It's been pretty dry in Texas lately too (no surprise). I'll post up some pics tomorrow. Got my fitted, tee and crewneck in the mail as well. Love it.

Yes. You have three examples (Germs, Doom Generation, Black Scale collab) just a few posts above.
Also some stuff that's sold out online may still be in one of the brick & mortar stores.

Give them a call. If you know the name of the item you're looking for, they're cool about checking stock for you.

Hahaha oh yeah. I'll try to post those tonight.

Thinking of ordering a belt and a twill and chambray shirt, but not sure about sizing.

Denim is Alexei Raw Selvedge. One is "Black" the other is "Indigo". 34 Waist and these are a 34 inseam as well. Crewnecks are a Medium. To give you an idea on what size to get, I'm 6'2 and about 175-180 lbs.

I didn't soak the denim. They stretched a decent amount, looking a bit big, but I think they'll be perfect when I eventually wash.
