I stumbled on this denim company based out of Amsterdam that are putting out a limited release of jeans that are not stitched but instead glued at the seems. Don't come across to me as being that aesthetically pleasing but sure a different idea. Check out the close-up's under collection part 2. Heres the link

don't know why they seem to pushing those red seams so hard. The black ones look pretty cool, like tar almost.

Can't see these being able to withstand any sort of pressure at the seams.

Yea the durability was the first thing that I thought of, it did say that they have been tested for 2 years so they might be durable.

Them jeans is ugly, but if you zoom in on one and click the right arrow really fast over and over the dance is hypnotic.

Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half.

I'm still a little iffy. who knows what this 'durability testing' involves. keeping in mind the fact that they're raw, and people on sufu would be likely to not wash them, I'd assume they would fall apart fast. wait and see, I guess

what the hell, the red inseam just look ridiculusly weird. First thing come to my mind is the levi's engineer jeans back many years ago. But then realize is even worst than that. The worst part is the name...Glue Jeans??...just like Paper denim

Some info via email. They were late in their response regarding whether a selvedge denim is used. It is not.

weight is 345 gr/m2
regular cut

This is dry denim prewashed
You can still expect a maximum of 1,5 % shrinkage

cost Euro 420,- (excl. delivery)

Best regards
