For those of you who don’t know much about fabrics and quality, you can usually tell them right away by the feel of the fabric. If you feel the denim is soft and has certain moisture to the fabric, it usually means the fabric was made with good-quality cotton, even if the denim is raw and unwashed. The touch is a big factor in determining the quality. Also, look closely to the fabric of the denim.
