Hear watchu sayin' about quality, if i'm coppin' Levi's it yhas to be LVC.

Edwin jeans are easy to obtain over this side of the pond via Harvey Nichols. Although there's not much variety to choose from atmo (and fairly over-priced at that). Love the cut!

i just got some old 04 maharishi jeans and thereee sweeettt.
i like everything about them, from the pattern printed on the inside, temple landscape stitching on the back pockets and the neat little stash pocket.
plus the fact that my idol, Lupe Fiasco loves maharishi too. :D

Ok, I'm an ignorant ass hole, and the only way to change that is to become educated, and the only way you become educated is by asking questions. Being more of a shoe enthusiast, what does selvedge even mean ? How do you even pronounce that ? It's like the rinse right ? Much respect if some one could elucidate

i got mad edwins for sale if you a small size..my boy is lookign to move his 2005 jeans

selvedge is usually denim done on vintage tight looms which the denim cloth is made in smaller sheets. a process which is more time consuming and expensive and make sa better product. gap jeans and old navy jeans are done as cheap as possible and the denim wears out really fast or stretches or both. really bargain basement stuff. the dye they use is low quality...everything on it is mad so you break them in 10-14 months

selvedge is a quality product. levis selvedge go for mad cash on ebay.

raw and dry is usually reffered to selvedge denim thats denim made on tight looms and dyed all crazy deep and rich indiglo. then cut up and sewn into jeans and packed and shipped. no bleach no distress no anything ....raw. 100% virgin denim stiff as a board. you wear it constantly for 6-9 months and it will be crease and personalize to you. its the ultimate....not old it is mad cash but its mad upkeep. 6-9 months before your first wash. but you get rewarded with wiskers and distress that matches your creases and a pair of jeans thats 100% perfect for you

intense right? raw selvedge is like 200-400 easy....depending on brand. 9 months wihtout washing creates special upkeep methods. theres dudes who put theirs in the feezer to get rid of smells and tape up the cuffs from getting the dye on their sneakers. baking soda to get out smells and stains

labour of love

or you can get 20 dollar old navys and toss them in with your whites and toss them in the garabge when you run thru them

if u look at awsheeet second EDWIN picture ... those 2 red stripes are selvedge ...

raw/dry denim has nothing to do with selvedge denim...it just happens that alot of raw/dry denim is also selvedge...


you can get raw/dry denim for like 30 bucks from like levis, or h&m, etc...


and that whole 6+ months shouldnt be something you take to seriously...ive seen jeans that look gorgeous with even 1-2 months wear...it all depends on how you wear them..

and ALL denim stretches..not just gap and old navy...you can expect your jeans to stretch around 2 inches if you wear them for good month or two without wash...

denim thread wee
hmm some of the shtuff i like
paper denim, still love the feel first pair i tried on back in the day sealed the deal, lately thou the washes and cuts have been disapointing and i think dude is more focused on his other line. still love it tho

red ear, i like the selvege shits they have and some of the regs, paul smith jeans dont really get me tho still this isnt too shabby and the prices are pretty nice imo.

edwin, awwshit hooked me up with a pair ,shits are mad nice i wear em alot around town good feel to em u know. might get some more but i have like 10 pairs of jeans so once i run through my beatemups il get more

gold sign- iv only tried these on once but i really like em for some reason kindah like paper byt ust feeel hella soft. no luck finding them tho as i always see womens and hardly ever mens(besides revolve)
outside of that i like armani and ice jeans still, they are heavy and less comfy but some of the washes are sick to me
stepping down to the day to day shit i love Pepe, from across the ocean, nice washes good feel mostly, unless u buy them here at the 'urban' store or department where they are hella gimped with fake ass patches and off bleaching.
if im doing work like painting or moving shit i grab the kani s. 20, light, semi durrable and u wont be mad that u got em dirty.

wana try out evisu and i wanna try nudie
but levi i got somekindah complex about not wearin dunno yrazz

best Denim brands are:

Evisu(mostly the old italian models, and some japanese ones. im not into those that are reaaaally loud and fucking ugly)
Sugar Cane
Edwin
LVC
Studio d'artisan
Samurai jeans
Denime


i am, of course talking about brands that are mainly based on denim products. Visvim, surrender and neighborhood also have a very nice few pairs of jeans.
please, when we talk about good denim don't place posts talking about paper denim and all that trash. btw, red monkey sucks hard, leave those for 50 cent and ludacris

March 3, 2006 @ 01:05 PM

sevens go both ways...i think their good shit is really good but their normal market macy joints are like mass produced and dont have the "love" a smaller brand might have for their jeans
