I am looking to buy a pair of dry denim jeans and am looking for advice. I have a pair of Polo Vintage 67 'dry' 'selvedge' jeans that I have worn for the past year, and they are the best/most comfortable jeans i have ever owned. The only thing is I cannot find anything about these jeans anywhere on the internet, except a few small posts. I am pretty sure they were raw when i bought them (though I didnt know this at the time), because of the way they faded.
I wasn't interested in raw denim before these jeans, but after having a pair I decided I would like to get a new pair. I am looking for raw denim under $100 with a slim but not particularly tight fit. So far I have looked at some Levi's 501's, 514's, and some Gap selvedge dry denim.
I would like to be able to try them on first, but in many cases thats not possible, so maybe just a fit comparison to levis 501 or 514 would be good
