Anyways - so yeah - how are their jeans. They're only $40 meng!!
I have a pair of their one-wash jeans and their distressed selvage. I don't think they have raw jeans in the US stores.
I love the one wash. The fade/contrast is not perfect, mostly because the fit is a bit baggy and it's one wash, but they are pretty stiff and well made. The selvage jeans are super soft and higher quality, but I didn't see those in the Soho store when I went in last week.
I agree, the Soho store is amazingly nice and inviting. I think it's too new to have any amazing deals, but wait for the fall or winter for some great deals. I bought my jeans from the store in Edison this past winter and they were blowing them out - $20 for one wash and $40 for selvage. You can't beat that!
