The Riot Raw combines cut and soft fabric to make them my favorite and most comfortable jeans I own. The waist is about 1/2" bigger than the stated size which leaves me room to tuck in a tee shirt. They shrunk in the length about one inch so I dropped the hem and they look great. I really like the vintage dye patina. The black color was dark but after one or two washings they have become a dark gray which I way prefer.

I'm loving these, almost as much as the Free Rydr. These are a bit lighter, a little better for summer than the latter. The fit is great, and a little stretch and articulated knees make them very comfortable with plenty of mobility. I haven't noticed much shrinkage, though they fit me better after the first washing. I wash them cold inside out, line dry. I've had several 34" inseam jeans that were a bit too short but these are perfect. Only request, put another stealth pocket on the other side for the wallet. The front pockets is a tad shallow for my front pocket wallet, causing it to stick out a bit. Otherwise the pockets are great.

I need to amend my review after another wash and wearing around town. These jeans shrink in length almost a full size (waist stays fine). Looking closely at the product pic you can see the model is wearing a MUCH longer than normal inseam. If these came in 31" inseams (instead of 30" or 32"), that might be just right after washing. Patting my $85 pants clean with a "moist sponge" to prevent shrinking is absurd.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: You find the hipster approach to fabric care absurd? Got it. We can understand that. You might try this technique: wash in cold water, and avoid the dryer at high heat. The design team came back with this reply: "These pants measure ½” long, if they shrink 1” they would still be within tolerance."

I really like the overall fit of these jeans. They are very comfortable and casual but look nice enough to wear to the office. They are lighter than I expected so they make a better summer jean then year round. My only major complaint is that they seem to shrink in length a little. I have two other pairs of Khul pants both 30" inseams and they are the perfect length (even after several washes). The Riot jeans started out the same but have become noticeably shorter after only 2 or 3 washes (always dried on low). Gives these an extra 1/2" in length and they'd be perfect, but inseam only comes in 2" increments.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Raw denim is unlike another fabric in the KUHL line. Some owners of RAW denim do not wash the pant because they want to keep the 'raw' quality of the fabric. Instead they take a moist sponge to any spots and throw the pant in the freezer overnight to keep things "fresh". We will take your feedback n the inseam length and washing the RAW denim to design for them to review. Thanks!

Great product. Very comfortable and durable. This is my third pair.
Excellent fit, true to size, great material. Favorite pair of jeans, for sure.
I use the product for everyday wear and for work as a fugitive recovery agent. With your jeans I am able to blend in with a common appearance but still have added movement and function in the pants in the event that my job calls for me to be physically active. I feel the jean fit well, I haven't had them shrink yet but I hear that's common. I do wish they had a little more room in the crotch like the slackers do. I also don't enjoy how they are a HUGE magnet for link and dog hair. It would be nice if the exterior of the jeans functioned more like typical jeans.
I like that I can get my size 33W. I like how comfortable they are. This is because of the innovative new ergonomic design features as well as the waistband material. Construction is good. Biggest downside is lack of "Made in USA" versus made in China.
Purchased as a gift for my son who requested these. He will be thrilled!
