Lucky there are still people who are making something special and unique instead of mass production. Yesterday I came across another small denim brand from Lansing, Michigan (USA). Ray’s Raw Denim is a one man brand. They make world-class jeans by hand and believe that style is better than fashion. The garments they build are designed for hard wear and intended to make you stand just a bit taller and have a spring of confident comfort in your step. Seriously. These are the sort of jeans that will be like your favorite go-to sweatshirt or your lucky ball cap. And they’ll last you for years to come.
