"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."
Wash the Duck Diggers and you'll see what I mean - I would defy anyone to call them "smooth to the touch"
. The Diggers will bobble up. The Pure Blues are one wash.
The following are 2 pics from the Warehouse site. These are 'industrially' washed and the lighting is a bit flat, but you can clearly see the rough nature of the denim after washing. If you touch them, they won't feel smooth to the touch at all.http://www.ware-house.co.jp/upimg/item/pc/280_2.jpghttp://www.ware-house.co.jp/upimg/item/pc/258_2.jpg
Fantastic denim, like the XX-003
PS - I completely agree with Coldrice that the AI's are somewhat 'loud' both the denim and stitching (although we're talking degrees of 'loudness' here - I mean it's not Elton John country).
