484 Japanese selvedge jean in raw indigo
Product Details

Our slimmest fit yet, for guys who like their pants slim, not skinny. This jean is for the denim purist: It's made from genuine raw indigo selvedge cotton woven at one of Japan's oldest and most renowned mills. For those not in the know, raw denim (also called "rigid" or "dry denim") feels stiffer at first and then fades and distresses according to the individual wearer; in other words, these are as authentic as it gets.

  • Selvedge cotton.
  • Button fly.
  • Traditional 5-pocket styling.
  • Machine wash.
  • Import.
  • Since this item is indigo dyed, it's prone to crocking, or color transfer, so wear (and wash) it with dark colors till it's worn in.
Size & Fit Details
  • Sits below waist.
  • Extra slim through hip and thigh, with our narrowest leg.
  • 14" leg opening (based on size 32/32).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans Really happy with these jeans ... yes, they're expensive but the quality more than makes up for the extra price and you're buying a product that will last for years. If you haven't tried before then dry selvedge is a very different experience from the normal pair of jeans. Expect the fabric to feel very rigid and the fit distinctly tight for at least the first dozen or so wears ... but as the denim relaxes and shapes to your own fit then you'll end up with the best jeans you've ever had. These come with a recommendation to wear them sixty times before the first wash if you want the perfect fit and the perfect personalised fades. Other brands recommend wearing dry selvedge jeans for up to six months before you let them near the laundry room ... yes ... really .... !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Term Review I'm not writing this to argue that raw denim is for everyone, but my relationship with my J. Crew raw indigo 484's has been as steadfast and solid for the better part of three years as those with my dog and fiancee. They have taken steps on five continents and ocean dips in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. After about 24 months the crotch had worn to critical levels, requiring a thorough rebuild of the inner thighs, patches under both knees, and a re-hemming; in my opinion, a small price to pay for 500+ days of having the best and most authentic denim in any room I have entered. I own four other pairs of 484's in other fabrics, but I only have one pair of raw's and I intend to wear them forever. Long live the king!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 484 Best Fit, Quality, & Comfort This is my 6th pair of 484 Japanese Selvedge raw jeans - I couldn't be happier with the fit and quality. Others also ask me what brand these jeans are, and then are surprised when I say JCrew. I have other jeans in my closet but I always go back to my 484's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, excellent style, unique This review is coming from an ordinary guy, who never, in his wildest dreams, would have spent over $100 on a pair of jeans several years ago: You know your jeans are different when they come in their own little canvas tote bag. These jeans, while insanely expensive, are different from regular blue jeans. The quality is much higher, and they just look and feel completely different. They run a little tighter, but that could just require some breaking in. The leg opening is significantly smaller. I have trouble just fitting my size 12 foot through the opening, so beware if you have an even larger foot or plan on wearing these with boots with a large opening. The details, styling, color, etc. are all great. I also bought a pair of the 484 Selvedge Resin Crinkle Wash jeans, and it is no comparison. If you are looking for a Raw Selvedge look, these are the jeans you want.
