I have a thing for slubby, irregular denim..... Sorry! lol

U find loomstate to be less slubby and irregular? Don’t be sorry.

I haven't handled any loomstate denim, actually. I was just referring to my love of PBJ....

I'm in the camp of people who dislike the unpredictable nature of loomstate.

How do you feel about the terminology? Raw=loomstate?

I think the terminology is accurate

IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-86 green size XL

That was what caused this thread to be started.  I have written to Nick at Heddels and told him that the article is bullshit...

Heddels is wrong more often than it is right, IMO.

Funny enough it used to be called Rawr Denim before changing its name to Heddels.

To me raw is denim that has no more than one initial soak before hitting shelves and has zero pre-distressing.  When I think of raw denim I think of a jean that looks the way it does because the wearer got them to that point not because someone sandblasted them before sending them to the retailers.
