    You can ask this question about any piece of clothing. Say, for example, a Paul Smith suit. Its not the highest quality, but its pretty damn good, and miles above what people find at places like Macys and Men's Warehouse. Like selvage, if you look inside a Paul Smith jacket, you'll see subtle details that make the garment very special. While these signs of quality aren't so obvious to the naked eye, for those who are in the know, you're in a rather exclusive club.

    you make it sound like a pair of non selvage jeans with subtle detailing and styling doesn't exist. the whole 'in the know' and 'exclusive club' thing is kind of funny too. i don't really think any of that matters since in the end it's really about how you feel and look.

    If in the end it's about how you feel and look then there's a lot of factors that go into why people look and feel a certain way when wearing an article of clothing. Many people pride themselves on how much they spend, how little they spend, how well they match, even how much they "don't care" among many other things. Selvage, to many people, can make them feel like a million bucks and thereby look like a million bucks as well. So in the end... maybe it really is about selvage.

  3. i once saw someone with a track jacket... black w/yellow stripes, although i don't remember how many. on the breast it says (in yellow) 'new york state correctional facility' with the olympics logo underneath it... but instead of rings they were badges (heh). underneath the logo it said 'olympic <something> (maybe team)'.

    does anyone know what those are? anyways i'm just curious.

    yes I removed the stitching... it's the synthetic version, which I believe is better considering the fade. the weight is not all that noticeable, because they are very compact. still they are quite tough. the waist is low, even for many western jeans.

    mass, are the shoes ugly? they're whoop'ee' 9643

  5. a designers republic shirt that has an angryman on it and says 'i am nothing without the designers republic'. the back has names & emails of around the 100 people that got the shirt for free... they gave them away when they closed their newsgroup right before they launched their website.
