Trying some John Elliot stuff out. Probably need to get on Jet's DvN too.

Coming from somone who knows next to nothing, why are those jeans good? Seem like just a lot of predistressing, but people seem to like them so I'm curious.

Haven't seen very many jeans that have executed that style of wash very well is all. Maybe Visvim for 3x+ the price in a less modern cut? Hope the fit works for me, but I'll post up a review of all the items when I receive them.

Yeah Teger I think you've got it backwards, J Crew's button stance is a little low for my taste. Their suiting seems to be a rip off of RLBL (slim cut, highly padded shoulders, narrow lapels, low button stance). Don't see how the above could possibly be considered a high buttoning point.

^iPhone? tends to do that =\

I like those jeans and tank btw. All from the same label?

^Hence i want to try out the suiting by J.crew, if only to have a more balanced jacket as high button points bring out the worst in my thigh / hips. J.crew retail is also not as shocking have spent a lot more on other purchases. By the description, the suiting material is not all bad. It is probably mid-level / status quo, and I am probably not knowledgeable enough to notice the difference as much as I do like reading MC now and then. Ignorance is bliss.

No, on my computer. I've been getting it a lot more in the last few days. All from John Elliott

Just depends where in the hype cycle SF is between distressed, washed, and raw jeans. They all have their merits when done well.

Go check them out at Amrag. Their stuff is selling well. Great fits, tons of care in design, and really cool friends of mine running it. S/S 13 should be great as well.

I have the "cast" obsidian raw selvedge and love them, and also have the "Villain" side zip, which is a pullover with riri zippers on the sides, meaning it can show off subtle layering.
