No, selvage jumped the shark when American Eagle started making bootcut predistressed selvage jeans. Or even before then, with Gap and j crew.

I think he meant pieces priced similarly to EG, not the aesthetic itself...

The problem with takin style advice (or any advice, for that matter) from publications like Esquire with such a large reading audience is that writers inevitable have to water it down in order to appeal to and be accessible for the majority. Regardless, I agree with other posters that its entirely possible to build a presentable wardrobe for work and otherwise for under 5 grand.

Wow, I never thought anyone on SF would pay good money for Supreme. Camo jacket is honestly not that bad, but that varsity is bleccch.

I hear you brother. Even though I never bought into any of the clothing, I still have numerous kicks that I wear quite frequently. I've only recently started phasing in some real "shoes". The hypebeast aesthetic repulses me, but I think that when you're young, dunk SBs and the like can still be integrated into casual fits.
