How much selvage? Are you kidding me? (zombie tone) We ... must ....have ....more ....selvage. I need a selvage belt, hat, socks, shoes, shirt, laptop, food... I think you get the point.
I admit they are a bit gimmicky, but come on, selvage is kinda a gimmick by itself. I mean the same quality in denim could be had with out a selvage line. If your gonna do gimmicks... do 'em til your head spins.
