Recommended Posts

The thread poster implied the ones linked aren't the ones he's talking about.

i'm pretty sure you denim snobs don't have to get your apcs in a twist or anything... i work in an h&m and after launching our new denim line this fall, the most unpopular models have been the unwashed, raw, and selvage pieces. your average consumer doesn't know any better, they just want something that looks like diesels or sevens.

i still dont understand when people on this site or any other for that matter get upset when other people get on the same bandwagon theyre on. as if they were THE FIRST PERSON EVAR to rock APC's or $30 levis...

I went to check these out tonight. They are selvage, but they aren't dry or rigid at all. They are soft and cheap looking. I was actually dissapointed... I was hoping for a cheap deal!

Nothing, actually. They didn't convince me at all, but I've never seen selvage jeans! The outerseam didn't have the same pattern I've seen on the fake selvage, though, with the big looping stitching. I should have taken my camera. :)

Then again, I didn't see the cardboard instruction tab that the OP mentioned... but they were the ones pictured.

Well in my case, I'm not pissed that others get into the same bandwagon, just that a lot of people jump on whatever they think is cool. I like dry denim a lot because of the dark color and the rigid look and I think the whole trend of breaking in is ehhhhh

The quality isn't okay, and it isn't dry either.

kettle calling the pot black huh friend

Its funny, when i made this thread, i made up the whole old navy selvage thing, but its funny that old navy actually makes a selvage jean now, obviously not geared toward the supershopper though.

These aren't really selvage. If you turn the leg inside out, you can see that about 3/4 way down, a piece of selvage has been sewn over the normal seam. The selvage on the leg doesn't like right anyways b/c the outside edges of the selvage are really thick, I guess to cover the stitching of the normal seams. It's ridiculous how much selvage is all over the jeans. There's a piece covering the watch pocket, inside the waist band, etc.

I don't expect these to sell very well. I doubt the average Old Navy customer is ready for raw denim.

little girls/boys won't like the hard feeling of raw jeans....unless......icon_smile_shock.gif
