    Any wearers of selvedge here? I wear Naked and Famous on a daily basis. Used to wear true religion and 7 mankind until my friend converted me.

    I dabble at the lower end. Have some nudies from about 6 years ago for general wear and tear and some APCs. Sadly in my experience selvedge crotches still blow out at the same rate. Also a 6 monthly soak in a cold bath is not really acceptable in the australian climate.........

    Um...what's selvedge?:D

    And what's this about selvedge crotches!!??:eek:

    And are the crotches blowing something the reason for taking cold baths!!??:eek:

    And, BTW, if they are jeans, as everyone in the know understands, the ONLY jeans to wear are Levis 501 Original Fit. This is not an opinion, it is TRUTH! :D ;)

    I'm doing a pair of raw PRPS right now, had them over a year but lost interest for a while. Going to starch them this week, they were put in a wash that was too hot and left crumpled in a pile full of clothes when we were moving stuff around in the house :eek: Left them a little softer that I would like, but at least they aren't ruined like I originally thought.

    I like the fit on the Samurai 500s, pretty sure they'll be my next pair in a year or two.

    I was thinking about getting some APC new standards. I've been trying to look for a true straight leg without tapering

    I'm so embarrassed :eek:

    I must have staggered into the wrong thread. No sperrys (Sebagos in summer, Timberlands in colder weather), thin black rimmed glasses (semi-round), , and I have had a beard since 1962, sonny.:cool: :p

    I don't know what "fixie" is. Who can understand you young whippersnappers today and your crazy slang talk.:confused:

    Kids today...gosh all hemlock...

    :rolleyes::D

    (p.s. I'm old too and my beard isn't ironic at all! Don't tell!)

    Depends on length. I don't do the usual crisp cuff - I do a small roll cuff instead. Really small, less poserish and suits me more.

    Do what you like the look of and feel comfortable doing :)

    I usually do about a 1/2 inch at most.
