Are all cuts of Cheap Monday raw denim? I am looking at this pair- http://www.karmaloop.com/product/The-Tight-Jeans-in-Original-Unwash/136838 I have heard that they fit a little small. Do they stretch out with wear? I usually wear a 28 so I think I will just stick with a 28.
I have those pairs, they're really thin. I think you should get your money's worth and go for unbrandeds. I have worn them for awhile and they didn't really fade that much except for wallet fades.
