How can u actually spot real high quality dry denim in the shop?
 
Are all jeans made of denim?
I thought many are made of cotton.
 
As normal denim automatically worse than dried Denim.

A reason for me to hate the 501 now?

I have a pair of raw paper denim and cloth that I got years ago, and they are coming nicely.  I notice that PD&C is not made in USA anymore

  Is there any dirt cheap raw jeans that I can wear out and look great over time?

Blue In Green is having a week long sale and will donate 50% of the net revenue to the American Red Cross.  I think it's for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Efforts.

Thanks for the suggestion!!  I got my 501 shrink to fit.  Got them wet and put them on until it dried to fit to my body.  Thanks.  I will post up pics of my jeans progress.

The Hawaii shrunk a little after a wash even though it's a one wash denim, and it's not as smooth as 1947 right now.  I find the sugar cane fiber a bit irritating on the skin but not enough to make me want to scratch.

It's Eternal 811 one wash this time.  It appeared to be as well made as Sugar Cane jeans.  Its denim is a bit stiff at present, hopefully it will soften up after one day of wearing.

Sugar Cane Union Star one wash jeans were selling at half price so I couldn't resist.  It has the same thickness as Hawaii and its cut is pretty similar too.  This denim is softer than Eternal 811 (which is still a bit stiff at present).  Well I have enough jeans to wear for now but I would like to try Momotaro, Samurai or Iron Heart one day.
