Re: Jeans/Denim

Dressing nice and trendy helps, but it doesn't mean you have to do it to get some ***.

That's all I'm trying to say and that's coming from a guy who likes to dress nice.

I'm not even convinced it helps you out. At least not with girls who don't have genital poison.

I have two pairs of jeans I where. I actually had to go look what brand my jeans are (Levi). I've had them for 2 or 3 years. They probably cost $30.

I can afford nicer clothes now, but I'm reluctant to upgrade because every time I try something on that's way too expensive I feel as stupid in it as other people look.

LOL

I'm attracted to girls who dress nice, so there are obviously girls that are attracted to dudes that dress nice. But not all girls are the same.

I don't disagree with you. My thing is that looking average will disqualify you from some girls before you open your mouth, looking good generally won't.

As for selvedge/selvage:
http://hauteconcept.com/2007/05/22/w...elvedge-denim/

basically, it's denim made on pre-WWII looms. Essentially it's more time-consuming and a pain in the ***, and thus more expensive
many people do still like it for the "historical/authentic" value, and there is no denying that it is tough as hell.
Supposedly it fades better, with nicer hues, but all raw jeans I've had were selvedge so I can't make a direct comparison. Supposedly it creates a cleaner outseam, and has more "irregularities" that give your jeans "personality" but I think these two are minor, minor points.
Now you got me interested. It's ok I won't spend 100s of dollars on pants like I tried having a shoe collecting hobby and a headphone hobby.

???????. $100 jeans are silly, but $150-200 give you your money's worth? Lucky Jeans are the best fit for me, look great, and I've had pairs for years. Light and comfortable, and yet durable enough to withstand a work site. Relatively inexpensive enough that if I did damage a pair, I wouldn't worry too much about it. You're more than welcome to join me on a construction site with your Selvedge jeans, let's see if the concrete or asphalt can **** with them.

Re: Jeans/Denim

I don't think anyone is suggesting that $150+ jeans are for a construction site.

Re: Jeans/Denim

I think you guys were missing the point. I wear my $100 jeans on a site, if they get damaged (which they haven't yet) the cost is reasonable enough to replace him. The OP threw out the argument, "you ever tried to **** with a pair of Selvedge jeans?" If by harsh use, does he mean looking fashionable in a Starbucks drinking a latte?

Selvedge is, by the very method of its construction, the toughest denim. They will hold up against whatever kind of abuse dished out.

And if you're the type to be able to appreciate a $100 pair of Lucky above a $20 pair of Kohl's, then you'll be the type to appreciate (though perhaps not willing to afford) a $200 pair of jeans. Not True Religion or 575 or other "fashion denim", but a pair of Kicking Mules, for example.

And uh, striver? If you see me with a giant D&G branded on my *** pockets, you can try that. But most high end jeans are unbranded. While they look "better" in terms of fit and wash, the average person will not know what they cost.

It's weird. SO when I was in college, I wore msotly khakis and cargos and this was the case for most ppl at school. On the occasion that people wore jeans, I did notice that they were mostly Diesel and Seven.
Then I lived under a rock, but came back to the MIDWEST. Didn't think I could get further away from anything fashion-related.

But I'm seeing a lot of Sevens and Diesels (not much has changed in the market, huh?), but even the occasional PRPS and unbranded jeans with that small detail indicating its $300 retail price tag. Mind you, these are poor grad students at a state school. Dudes (like me) that are wearing hoodies, you know? They ain't even dressing up. I mean, these folks are still probably a minority, but I'm surprised that I'm seeing a lot of those around campus, but on this thread, I have what, one dude and one girl who wears these, one dude who wears the midlevels, and everyone in their $20 jeans ragging on ppl with finer threads.

Odd.
