from what i understand the material is much tighter, kinda more stiff. I have tried a pair on at a local shop and really liked them.

APC. Check them out, they have much better prices than Nudie and don't have the ugly back pocket stitching.

Depends on your budget. Go for a pair Samurai jeans if you are looking for something in the $250-300 range.

raw selvedge is the bomb

raw for the color fade in 8 months

selvedge for the material for the stretch and shrink of the denim. its quality you know will be there.

actually its a common misconception to think that selvedge is quality, its actaully more of just a trend than anything else. HOWEVER there are certain types of denim which are considered to be top quality that can most likely only be produced on the type of small looms which produce the selvedge on every denim... ALL denim has a selvedge, infact all fabric has a selvedge. The difference is that most denim these days is produced on a loom which is very large and can produce fabric in extremely wide lengths which is more cost effective. the end effect is that in one width of denim you can make multiple cuts from you pattern, where as the older looms you can't... which is why the selvedge is produced... also I believe all selvedge denim is a straighter cut, i.e. no boot cut, not 100% positive about that, but it makes the most sense.

usually only straight while flairs can be done its not

it cost more to make selvedge denim its a given the jean is more thought out and better. i mean would you pay 9 dollars for a big mac? would anyone? of course not. why should mcdonalds use 100% pure angus beef? why bother? people who eat mcdonalds dont care where the beef is from. thusly they expect cheaper prices and cheaper quality (you meal comes wrapped in paper on a tray as opposed to a plate and a waitress)

does it automaticly mean a diner place is better than mcdonalds? usually.

I'm not trying to start an argument, but I have seen selvedge denim for $50 bux and by no way are they better than a standard $40 dollar pair of levis imho. But yes, USUALLY it does mean its a nicer quality product.. i have deffinetly sold all my old pairs of jeans and invested in quite a few pairs of selvedge denims... and no matter what people say, old evisu's are the shit!!
