DSTLD is one of the premier denim companies on the internet today that offers premium raw denim and selvage denim at great prices by removing the wholesale aspect of their selling process and going straight to the consumer. After wearing the jeans for 2 months and not having washed them yet, I think they’re an incredible deal. I am comparing these to my favorite Bonobos and Gustin jeans of which they held up well. I look forward to trying additional products from DSTLD and will do follow up videos to keep you informed!

This video is completely unsponsored, I am unboxing on camera because I love the brand and want to share better menswear with the world. Have a product you would like me to review? Comment below or email info@thekavalier.net

From DSTLD:
To achieve the rich color of these jeans, our heftier 12.75 oz. raw denim fabric is treated to an exhaustive 24-dip dye process in real natural indigo. The result: lasting color with an impressionable, ever-changing quality – the denim will gradually evolve in both look and feel into a true one-of-a-kind, completely bespoke to the wearer. This stiffer, heavier weight raw fabric is infused with our signature 2% stretch for a comfort seldom seen in raw denim. The fabric has also been sanforized and mercerized to minimize shrinkage.

Our Slim fit with classic Timber stitching presents a clean-lined, lean silhouette with slight tapering from knee to ankle.

NOTE: Due to the rich dye process, color transfer will occur with lighter fabrics.

12.75 OZ. SANFORIZED RAW DENIM, DYED WITH NATURAL INDIGO
RAW DENIM IMPROVES WITH AGE & REPEATED WEAR, SOFTENING AND EVOLVING OVER TIME TO REFLECT THE WEARER’S OWN UNIQUE SHAPE AND LIFESTYLE. YOUR JEANS WILL BREAK IN BEAUTIFULLY, TAKING ON PRICELESS CUSTOM-BUILT CHARACTER

Raw denim is a unique fabric with its own rules for care/washing. In general: the less you wash your raw jeans, the better.

THEN, WASH AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE, ALWAYS IN COLD WATER.
LAY FLAT TO DRY.
TO HELP SET THE DYE AND REDUCE BLEEDING, YOU CAN TRY SOAKING YOUR JEANS IN COLD WATER AND VINEGAR OVERNIGHT IN A BUCKET OR BATHTUB. IN THE MORNING, RINSE THE JEANS IN COLD WATER TO REMOVE VINEGAR.
IF YOU WASH YOUR RAW JEANS IN WARM/HOT WATER AND/OR DRY THEM, THEY WILL SHRINK. TO AVOID SHRINKAGE, FOLLOW THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS.

Nature Cures!! says:

Is this the slim or skinny slim fit? Just looked on there site and this looks more like a skinny slim. Lmk I don’t want my jeans too skinny. Also, lighting is tough to see with the pink going on and I don’t like the breakfast picture, definitely like new decoration to make the videos better

DSTLD says:

Thanks for such a great review, Jon!

Ryan Kayrell says:

By the way, sincere congratulations on the birth of your daughter. I’m sure you are going to have your hands full.

Ivars Bezdechi says:

What kind of work boots are you wearing with the jeans?

M K says:

Have you tried washing them? Did they shrink? What other raw denim brands in this price range would have a 36″ inseam?

John Tesoriero says:

Great video. How do you like them compared to Mott and Bow?

Ryan Kayrell says:

Had a marketing event about month ago that called for club attire. Went out and got a pair of AG’s at everyone’s favorite retailer. Don’t get me wrong, I really like them. But it seems like these are on par.

pedro Gomez says:

I’m a size 38 are they true to size?

Pico says:

they look super slim fit. how are they when it comes to bending down and stuff ? stretch other restrictive?

Skip Alvarez says:

Yes! Another denim video! How do you wash them? Do you freeze them? I freeze my Diesel jeans but I feel like it doesn’t really clean them so I gave in last month and washed them on the delicate wash in the washer. It didn’t seem to change them much but I was curious as to how you take care of your quality denim. ☺

Jason McCay says:

Dude, it’s pronounced “distilled.” Says it right on their front page.

Scott Ai says:

First of all, I want to say that I love your videos! Keep making them, you’re doing an awesome job! Second, I’m kind of confused about the sizing. So you normally wear a size 30 waist, but you sized up two and went with a 32. I’ve never owned any raw denim, but from what I know, I thought you were supposed to size down due to the fact that raw denim normally stretches after a few wears. I normally wear a 29 so I was thinking of getting a 28. I’d love to hear what you think before I drop 55 on a pair of these.

Jamie Stein says:

You’re very handsome.

Reviewy McReviewface says:

Nice, thorough review – thanks for sharing it!

friendlygoz says:

Thanks for getting this out. I would totally agree with the review. I own two pairs, and I love them. The quality is superb. They are developing some nice fades after 18 months. I wash them when they need a washing, and I hang dry them. I don’t subscribe to the no-wash school of raw jeans. They are cotton! At any rate, still loving them, and the price is crazy good.

KCkoolaidking says:

Try the Henley from Baldwin denim. Designed in KC, manufactured in California. Best fitting jeans I have ever owned. I currently have 3 pairs ranging from 4 years old to 1 year old. You will have to get them hemmed to what length you like based on cuff or no cuff, they only measure waist size.

Troy Shepherd says:

Hey Jon. Just found your videos the other day. I love them. Also, another Pittsburgh guy here. I’m surprised we haven’t run into one another at the airport. So, to the task hand. How do you care for your jeans? I have two pairs that I only wash twice a year. My wife thinks I’m the worst because of this :). I’ve found that occasionally keeping them in the freezer overnight will help to refresh them. Any tips?

King Matt says:

Do those jeans feel tight on you?

Steve Steele says:

Alright KT, decided on these, we’ll see how they work out! Kinda leery on the spandex, like the super stiff jean, but $10 and no waiting changed my mind.Enjoy your discount too. Thx, Steve

Steven Perez says:

Thanks for the great review! You provide a ton of valuable knowledge in all your reviews. This vid helped me pull the trigger here. I usually wear Paige, AG and Levi’s. Excited to give these a try. Much appreciated and keep up the good work :)

Kevin Meza says:
