Overall the S/S line is a disappointment. The colors are pretty depressing...too much muted plaids. I'd like to see a lightweight slim fit chino made out of the old 65/35 fabric LLB used to use on their basic chinos, the ones with the wide belt loops.
IMO double cuffs on an adult looks juvenile (after all, the reason those old pics show kids with big/double cuffs is so they can "grow into them."). I'm OK with small single cuffs IF the shoe warrants it. (heel heights/shoe volume vary so jeans that fit with, say, boat shoes are gonna bunch up around heavy boots). Shorter people should follow the MC rule: cuffs visibly shorten your legs. That is all. I'll make an exception for people into rockabilly and other...

You won't regret it.

Quote: Originally Posted by Logan I just bought a pair of 505's for $75 from a Levi store. Why does Brooks Brothers charge double that? Its my understanding that the BB makeups (501, 505) use heavier denim (tho not selvedge) and add a brown on brown leather patch. There's also a "special wash." Is that worth a 100% premium? I will say the BB makeups just look like they're stitched together better -- maybe a little more QC? I also suspect...

I used to only wear 501 stf's as my beater jeans, but then Levis came out with the 514. So much better. If they made an stf 514 I'd buy it in a heartbeat. If they made a selvedge stf 514 I'd buy 3 pairs. As for "cool," eh, depends how you wear 'em, and your body type. The long rise doesn't work on me. and makes my legs look short. You can get good fades/evo with the stf's. [rant]Levi's should OWN the midrange denim market in the US (Say, $100-$200). They have the...
