  Ah, and now we get to the core of it.  It annoys you when people speak out against bullies, because that makes them "righteous".  Which...truth told...yeah.  That kinda does, don't it?   So I accept your conclusion.  If you're done trying to pick a fight, we can move on.
*sighs*   My point that you first responded to was that selvedge has been hyped up beyond all possible recognition.  In this regard, Mauro seems to agree with me.   Mauro obviously knows a whole lot more about fabric and denim than I do, and I will defer to him.  My last post was simply what I've heard about selvedge denim, the "story" behind selvedge denim.  The hype.  I didn't mean to present it as irrefutable fact, and I don't mean to proclaim myself as an expert:...
Ask yourself this question: Is that the actual definition, or is that the hype?   Quality denim is quality denim, with or without selvedge.  A fabric woven on a narrow loom isn't necessarily a great fabric, but the fact that it was woven on a narrow loom is a good indicator that whoever is producing this fabric isn't overly concerned with making a large quantity.  Otherwise they'd be using a wider loom.  Savvy?   If the person isn't overly concerned with producing a...

  It's a feature of the denim.  I mean that in a straightforward, literal, wikipedian sense.  Selvedge is a quality which certain denims possess.  Selvedge is a self-edge, a finished end to a fabric that doesn't fray, and creates a definite "stop" point to a fabric.  It doesn't have to have a colorful stripe, it just has to serve as a finished edge to a fabric that doesn't require any additional needlework to prevent fraying.
There's too little information here to make a recommendation.   What do you mean by similar?  Similar cut, construction, materials, etc?   APC makes good stuff.  So do a lot of other companies.  What is it about this pair that caught your eye?
People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.   The OP started off this thread as a simple inquiry.  Then people started the dogpile and insults.  "the point of selvedge is quality, you fucktard" they said.     Contrary to popular belief, there is no "point" to selvedge, it's simply how denim and many other fabrics were made before projectile looms.  It's a feature of the fabric, nothing less, and it's been hyped up beyond all recognition.  Can we really blame people for...
Oof, reading this thread makes my head hurt.   here's a nice TL;DR:   Selvedge doesn't equal quality, but there's nothing wrong with buying cheaper clothing if you like it.   Some of you kids need to learn to play nice.  Chill out a little, eh?
Hard to see how a person could not like chucks.  They're functional, versatile, timless, cheap, durable, they go with practically everything barring formal wear.  There's a reason why chucks haven't changed much in the past 60+ years...   But, none of that matters if you don't like 'em.  C'est la vie.  If you're willing to pony up the extra cash, there's plenty of weightlifting shoes out there that will work.  Just look for anything with a minimal amount of cushioning.
How so?  They're both taper cuts, so that at the very least puts them in the same ballpark.   I own both: the average joe has a higher rise and is a touch more relaxed in the thighs.  Hell, I'd call both "slim taper", with the weird guy being the slimmer of the two.   Sooooo...care to elaborate?
