We are going organic in more than a few ways here. The raw craze has extended to denim, so it's time to forget the destroyed, pre-washed look from your Abercrombie days. Much of raw denim is also Selvedge, so it's quality that counts here. And if you're looking for a pair, the city is filled with options. We like to think of raw denim as the "old Levi's" revival. Produced on shuttle looms which were sold to the Japanese, raw Selvedge denim is making a comeback for its quality and durability. While not all Selvedge is raw (some are pre-washed), these jeans need to be broken in for a custom fit that lasts. Click through to see where to score a pair in NYC.
