I had a thought: if you could manage to get your hands on some "fake" selvage jeans or some that are poorly made or questionable (I think GAP made some jeans they called selvage once) so as to highlight the differences. It also may be worth comparing the general quality of materials and construction to something like True Religion or AG, or some Rock Revival or Rock & Republic. I think it'd be interesting.

I was in Bethesda last week for my students' exchange program. If my PBJs had some more impressive wear (only two months so far), I might've pushed for a quick interview. Have you thought about interviewing SidneyLo (NYC I guess)? It would be awesome to see his legendary Flat Heads or (more) recent Iron Hearts on film. Looking forward to the film!

I must say though, I didn't see anything resembling much raw denim around the Bethesda/DC area!

Super super stoked, should be a fun time! Look for an email with further details over the next day or two...

I'll try and contact sidneylo, didn't realize he was NY native. I remember seeing those jeans in a frame at SENY a couple years ago and just being inspired... I remember taking a picture of them, still got it around here somewhere ha

Yeah, not a whole lot of love for that around here, just finished the first "shoot" for the film with one of two people I know who are into raw from here. "Shoot" is in quotations because it was the final test run for us before start the official shooting next weekend, but some of his stuff may make it into the final....

Can't wait for NY

Awesome, looking forward to seeing you out there! I'll put up details on monday once we're back from NY with beats and JimmyC, it'd be cool to see a bunch of people stop by to check the filming out and just to see other denim-heads. Thanks everyone for being patient with schedules and details! Just need to get through this first weekend...

Hey everyone!
The Warp and Weft New York shoot is this Saturday, January 28th. We are reallyexcited to meet you all and have a little hang out, but most of all to see some beautiful denim and get it on film! Without further ado, here are the details for this weekend you need to know…

Location:
158 Allen Street, NYC. Its literally right behind Self Edge, so if you know where SENY is, face either direction and make two lefts or two rights and you’ll wind up at the shoot. It is the future home of Brooklyn based Feltraiger.

“Schedule”:
This is just something I wrote up to block off times. If you have a conflict please let me know and we can squeeze you in somewhere else or swap with someone. We will be shooting from noon until about six, which should give us enough time to get everyone. If you’re just coming to hang and stop by SENY and be filmed “whenever”, you are more than welcome to hang by and watch the other shoots and volunteer whenever you wish. This schedule is not set in stone, please allow for a little plus and minus on the time schedule, but we will try to adhere as much as possible.

12 – Stacks
12:30 – Jamie
1 – Face
1:30 – LandoCal126
Break
2:30 – Laxlife1234
3 – Stephen
3:30 – llvlaglne
4 - Brownmetallic
4:30 – Ashley

There are a couple of others who I am sure will “pop in” and can be filmed after the 4:30 spot. Again, this is not set in stone, just an outline, if there are any issues please let me know! If you are just planning on stopping by and are not scheduled, come any time you'd like, just please remember to be courteous! If you are planning on popping in and hope to be filmed, I'm sure we can work it out just don't expect to be able to film right away. Oh, and a little heads up would be nice...

If I have missed anyone who has contacted me before, I am very sorry and please EMAIL ME! It was not intentional! The more the merrier, lets have some fun!

What to bring:
Yourselves, a couple of stories, one to five pairs of your favorite denim, and an open mind. The interview will be very conversational, we want to know about what drives your passion for denim and how you got started in it.

Thanks again to everybody! Your interest is what drives this film, we couldn’t do it without you! Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend!

Just wanted to share a couple of screen shots from footage of this weekend... Don't judge the footage from this, obviously it's been compressed and resized and photobucket-ed to hell. Beats and Jimmy were two of the coolest people I'd ever met, it's rare to meet such genuine and aunthentic people, very cool shoot.
