    Evisu is still loved!

    Not withstanding the fact that I have too many jeans, I'm curious about Evisu. I'm very slight of built (small sized and short). Which is the slimmest fit that Evisu makes that does not have the crotch rivet? I'm hoping that such a fit would also feature the denim that they are more well-known for, rather than their lower quality, "diffusion lines".

    Wonder why. The announcement generated a flurry of interest in FH products. Perhaps the big boss is having second thoughts?

    While we're on the topic of the Red Cast denim, here's a couple of recent photos of mine. They don't get much use now as I'm fading something else, plus my thighs have gotten a bit big for them while they still fit properly everywhere else. They still hold a special place on my rack, and the fabric is a thing to behold. They've had slightly over 6 months of effective use and probably 6 machine washes in that time, creating a rather low contrast fade. They are still holding up very well in just about every spot apart from the bottom of the cuffs and a loose thread on one of the back pockets. Some folk have had issues with their pocket bags blowing out, but not in my case. Just look at that texture.

    This just popped up in my mailbox. On sale at Mr. Porter.

    Thanks for your insight. I just got a notice that the seller took the listing down as soon as I reached out. Quite a pity.

    The Flat Head

    Hello folks. Recently got myself a Flatty and have been pretty obsessed, reading through a couple of hundred of the pages on this thread. A quick question about Flat Head Balder jeans, on the off chance that anyone knows. Can anyone comment if they were ever produced with non-selvedge fabric, or if for whatever reason some runs of this model had a plain, white over-lock seam on the outseam near the cuffs? I Found one going for a steal and it could possibly be a good fit for my wife, but it seems to have that aforementioned overlock stitch on the outseam (instead of an expected pink line selvedge) and lacks that little brown label on edge of the back right pocket. I've seen examples with and without this label but never with a non-selvedge outseam. Gut feel tells me it's a fake, but as to why anyone would want to make a fake Flat Head Balder is beyond me. Unless it's just a poorly tapered boot cut Balder...appreciate any insight. Thanks.
