The Raw Denim Bar

Bringing New York and Los Angeles denim to the UK, denim expert Wendy Montgomery set up The Raw Denim Bar when she moved to England and realised many of the great American boutique brands weren’t readily available to buy over here.

Supplying labels like Kasil, Sinclair, Charley 5.0, DL1961, WorkCustom and Denim of Virtue, The Raw Denim Bar’s new Denim Concierge service, means you can now get these specialist brands direct to your door, trialing  up to five pairs of jeans with no commitment to buy.

How it works:

  • Call the stylists and fit experts on 0800 088 7632 and answer a few questions about your personal style, lifestyle and denim personality.
  • Using your measurements the fit experts select 5 pairs of jeans, specifically tailored to your needs.
  • Jeans are delivered direct to your door, enabling you to try them on with your flats, heels and favourite tops, in the comfort of your own home.
  • The Raw Denim Bar picks them up the following day, you have the choice to purchase the style/s you like, and return the rejects.

Wendy’s top tips for buying jeans:

“If you’re on a budget, there’s nothing wrong with getting your fun brights and prints on the high street, but for staple blue and black jeans it’s always worth investing in a premium brand – you’ll notice the difference.”

“The most important thing with stretch denim is the fit on the waist; the bum and hip area will stretch with wear.”

“Make sure the rise works for your shape – brands now offer low rise, mid rise, with mid rise and high rise proving more on trend for the Autumn/Winter 2012 season.”

“When buying online, always read the Editor’s advice, about shape, fit and finish.”
