I have lived in Kansas all my life and did not know this.  I need to start hitting the thrift stores around here and see If I can find some og LEE goods.

Thanks for your comments TinMan

In Kansas you should have seen quite a lot of old Lee and Levis stuff around there. At least untill the early eighties.
Can't tell about the mordern times though.

If you find some really heaviest used and worn out raw denim items from Kansas area, let me know at any time.

I'm busy with sorting out all the many stuff acumulated over the last 38 years from the fifties till now.
But I'm busy on my real job as geographer and next week there is the B&B in Berlin already.

Where is my spare life, I  need urgently for covering my raw denim life?
Really roughest vintage or raw denim rags deserves to survive for ever! So never throw away any raw denim rags - Use them as long as possible and when it comes to their end - there is a safe place where your favorite items can rest in peace for ever in the Jeansmseum ruedi.karrer@jeansmuseum.org

Thanks Raffa for adding my article from Rawr Denim on this forum.

I myself could never throw away any raw denim rags.
And luckily I can still fit in to my old stuff worn by me 25 years ago.
I really love to wear the hell out of them over years and years, watching their brave fight against their death....
