These. These are the jeans you are looking for. You remember what those crunchy jeans of yesteryear, but you’re new to them being called “raw denim”. We cannot recommend a better pair of jeans for those that are fresh to this whole thing and don’t want a super slim pair of jeans that will only discourage their fading process.
The Ankara is a mostly straight leg jean that fits just about everybody. It has a leg opening that’ll fit over sneakers or any boot you can throw at it and the top block is forgiving enough that you won’t feel crushed breaking them in. The construction is top notch, made in San Francisco from a midweight proprietary Japanese selvedge denim that you can wear all year round. Try them, you won’t regret it. Or if you want something a little more affordable, try the Ankara’s more modest sibling the Tellason Stock Straight.
