Pretty sure they don't do phone orders. If they have what you want then shoot me a PM. I'm gonna be going into NYC next Wednesday and I could do a pick up for you.

Went to the Nepenthes store for the first time today. Met Angelo and Abdul and they were great guys, super friendly and shared tons of knowledge. Tried on some WWM and saw some amazing (and wild) Needles and South2West8 gear. Great space, nice stock and layout. Also Abdul said after the Rest pop up shop they'll likely be doing one with Post O'Alls. Overall a very refreshing retail experience.

^^^You're right, slubiness won't make it look off. I just listed it in without thinking, but the other characteristics of the jeans mentioned, like grey weft, or a pair with indigo warp and weft, would look out of place in certain contexts. Like if you are going for an "Americana" or "Workwear" look (super vague but you get me), a pair of regular blue jeans (indigo warp, undyed weft) with contrast stitching and the usual rivets etc, would compliment the outfit much better.
I like both the 011 and 007 but wouldn't reccomend them as an everyday pair b/c the detailing, darker hardware, stitching, warp & weft, slubbiness make them look off in outfits more suited for regular blue jeans (for lack of a better term.) I think pairs with more off color detailing or dyeing method etc, are more suited as part of a larger rotation. Also I didn't notice the price discrepancy, so you are right... either way it will come out around the same price.
