Most of the Redmoon wallets will look big in a pair of slim fitting jeans. The long ones look particularly huge, and kind of strange. But I think they look fine.
I believe "wibble" is the 'nitty' to "wobble's" 'gritty'.
In the pictures from the Warehouse links, you'll see the little 'bobbles' in the denim. I stress that the photos in those links have 'flattened' the denim. You'll understand when you touch a washed pair. This kind of bobbling is quite popular at the moment on washed denim brands, and is usually achieved by fluffing the denim up with a rasp. On the Warehouse Diggers the bobbling occurs naturally in the denim - just like on the Pure Blues. If you look at a dry pair of...
"contrary to what ringring says- the fabric on the xx-003 isn't that similar to the warehouse duckdiggers in my opinion (unless you're just looking from afar)- the duckdiggers that i've seen are all smooth to the touch, visually slubby- the xx-003's have a rough texture and are also visually slubby."

Fantastic, although this is not to everybody's tastes. It's also a thicker, stiffer denim, and hence less comfortable to wear. The crossroads where all the fabrics meet at the crotch is a particularly 'wodgey' area The synthetic indigo denim is darker, still very slubby (not dissimilar to Warehouse Duck Diggers -...
