I'm getting confused about all the different Levis. I've heard the 501 STF are good for a cheap pair. Are they raw? Are the 514 rigids the same denim? Do they not come in a STF? How are they different from the matchsticks? These say they are selvedge so does that mean the STF are not? And where do the LVC fit into all of this?

An interesting experiment would be for a few influential posters to collude on starting a new trend. The SF "rules" are in some ways a byproduct of the incestuous...

Not to be a downer but once you start getting paid to do it, it's a job; no matter how much you like the subject. There are many people who ruined a perfectly good hobby by trying to get it to pay for itself.

They can't have it both ways.
what's the leg opening on #4?
What they are trying to say is you won't find many quality (goodyear welted, non-corrected grain leather, etc) shoes at that price point. The SF-approved entry level shoe is Allen Edmonds, which you might find close to that on sale or here on B&S. Search is your friend.
That's ridiculous. If they are so worried about people selling their seconds on Ebay they should stop selling seconds. Trying to police what people do with a shoe after you've sold it to them is ridiculous. In reality it's a way to get people started on JLs. I'm sure there are many people who started with seconds and moved up when they started making more money.
