    Before I get flamed off my ass, I know what raw denim is. I know you're not supposed to wash it, and it molds to your body, blah blah. I've felt it before.

    But I have this pair of Diesel jeans that I honestly can't tell if it's raw or not. I'm thinking no, and the jeans are just like that because they're new and my first pair of Diesel (so I'm not used to them). I'm not a jean expert by any means, so I want to clear this up before I do anything... I've worn them 2 or 3 times and haven't washed them.

    I also have a pair of Taverniti So jeans I got at the same time (got a bunch of stuff, just trying different brands) that feels equally as...stiff. Haven't worn them out yet. Both are dark, dark washes and feel crisp...

    Help me please. :sadwavey:

    No fading or whiskering or color change anywhere. The entire thing is a dark, dark blue

    i don't think diesel makes raw anymore, they are probably prewashed. 'rigid' if anything, but not raw

    what model is it? I know of 2 different types of raw diesels, zavor j's, and thanez 8AA's. Zavor j's are discontinued, but you can still find them in some places (i own a pair). Here are what Thanez 8AA's look like (since many people think diesel does not make raws)

      they're raw :dunno:
      thanaz 8AA's i realized they aren't actually considered raw, but they do fade. So as far as I know, zavor J's are the only raw diesels i know of. I can't pinpoint what wash you have, look in the inside of the waist and tell me.

    Well, I looked inside, and I guess the Diesels aren't raw (according to a search).
