You're heading in the right direction if you've gone with APC and Baldwin.

Nudies / APCs are perhaps the most "sought after" if by "sought after" you mean most widely purchased.



what else would it mean? market determines the demand. open a fucking dictionary.

If you mean "highly prized", then no, the kind of stuff Self Edge sells is generally valued more highly.

where did i say that? you're now just pulling statements out of no where then responding to them.

Quote:
Naked and Famous is not highly prized at all, it's a company that makes good jeans for their price range in a couple of serviceable slim cuts and they just happen to do a bunch of really cool, fun shit with colours and fabrics, like the flannel denim or the kevlar blend ones.

i didn't say this either, you sound like avery young and angered teenager. that can't assume he's wrong. you show little to no respect in any section of the forum, so i'll return none to you.

Diors are the exception, and the quality and attention to detail aspects aren't really the point. Dior jeans are not ultra well made. They're their own category of some mix of Hedi-hobbyists who will pay a premium to add to their collection from his work, or are looking for a very specific model / wash / treatment. Or, in many cases, just can't find anything that fits them better than the 19cm cut (which is the same reason I'm currently wearing Acne Max raws that cost me 200 bucks even though the denim isn't great and they're not constructed in any way that would justify that premium). For those reasons and just the cachet of the brand, DH are pretty highly valued, depending on which. People here have talked about $1200 jeans but the only jeans I've seen get up there are either stuff like Balmain or Hedi-era Diors in rare treatments which still max out in the 7-900 range.

i didn't ask for information about dior denim, nor is it even relevant, it was an aside.

your reading comprehension is at a level that needs to be improved, you should take some time out of your day and read literary works that are written in a higher manner than the posts in SW&D that look like:

Yo dAwg dEm DOirz been SteeZin

you also need to learn how to respect other members on a forum, insults do not help exchange ideas, and adversely affect the manner in which your opinion is received.

Dude, it's your grammar! It's remarkably off-kilter. And I don't mean that as a compliment. Go troll under a bridge.

Maybe you should STFU about things you don't know about, especially since you purport to not care as well.

What the fuck I'm a college graduate trying to be taken seriously in the work place

Eh? It's a patch on a pair of jeans. If people are going to not take you seriously at work because of this, it's going to be because you have a lot of other issues, and this is just the thing that they latch onto. In other words, it's you, not the jeans.

Actually, reedobandito is entirely right. The post of yours to which he was responding sounds like the rushed work of an enraged ESL student attempting to sound lofty. For instance, "market determines the demand [...] you're now just pulling statements out of no where then responding to them [...] i didn't say this either, you sound like avery young and angered teenager. that can't assume he's wrong. you show little to no respect in any section of the forum, so i'll return none to you," [etc.] is the very opposite of eloquence and articulate correctness.

Can't really argue with that. When it's 8 enormous macro shots in a row on a forum page it looks like a big deal but in reality people don't notice clothing details that much. I've never heard of anyone noticing a patch on a pair of jeans who wasn't an avowed clothing enthusiast (and most of them would know what Samurai Jeans are if they're looking at jeans waistbands to begin with).

I wish I could post the ideas Get Smart and I had for our leather patches without being labeled as both horribly graphic and incredibly racist.
