Also, I've never seen nor heard of McQueen selvedge denim, you sure that's what you have?
And this question belongs in the "I Have a Jean...." thread
Thank you for clarify the difference...
I have to admit, I have read the thread about sanforized and one washed... etc thread before, but obviously, i still didn't completely understood them...
As you probably can guess, I'm still noob on this raw, selvedge denim thing....
About my McQueen jeans being selvedge, I'm pretty sure it is, unless there is different kind of clean edge on the outseam... other than selvedge denim..
and the label has "Alexander McQueen"... i hope it's not FAKE!!!
Where do I look/feel to see if this is one-washed unsanforized or, washed sanforized..etc..?
