The Denim (contrast) Thread
Posted 21 August 2013 - 11:03 AM
The brave or penitent I imagine! Anyone hear try the Gustins at all? I'm due a pair this month.
I have a pair of Americans from the original Kickstarter. This was my 1st experience with raw selvage, so I can't comment much except that they're well made. The standard cut has a fairly high rise tho, so it fits great when standing, but tends to cut into your abdomen when sitting. I'm hoping it will wear softer after awhile, mine are about 14.5 oz.

If you are an occasional wearer, and possess the usual standards of hygiene, then it would be difficult to get any good fade patterns. Some of these denim heads live and sleep in their jeans 24/7 and throws the garment into the freezer to kill bacteria.
I figure that the answer to your last question is probably the latter.

Also, construction and quality of these type of jeans are normally top notch, so for the clothing aficionado and those who value quality, there's that.

Thanks Pete and 6 for the great explanation. As i suspected im too old for this shite
Well I became interested in it as I got older so it might hit you yet! But as you've said yourself there's a lot of hype around it and very many of the products are ridiculously overpriced. They've gone from being reasonably priced workwear to high fashion @$250+. So kind of like Purdeys' or A&S RTW prices!
