Selvage Jeans at Target? - Page 4

post #46 of 79
some people have to get an exact idea what selvage really is all about. as there is selvage denim and selvage denim. selvage is not always a sign of high quality.
the selvage denim we "snobs" like is woven on vintage and old narrow slow shuttle looms, done the old way.
but you can also do a selvage outline on the modern, fast and wide looms. making the denim cheaper (pricewise) and also different to the denim most of us have no problem to spend 200$ and up for

Yes, but the $10 ones weren't selvedge, made in Japan or any good.

There's denim and then there's denim. Yours is the former.

Once you begin wearing jeans from Target, compromise will seep into every facet of your life. Soon, you'll be able to rationalize eating dog food over human food, because hey, the constituent parts are the same, and it looks similar enough, so nevermind the details of it or dignity issues. Taste might be a little off, but I'm willing to subject myself to this because it's "close enough" but most importantly i think i'm getting such a bargain

Seriously, what kind of logic is this? He's probably buying to fit a look, not because they're an necessity. Come on, man! Don't be so extreme.

I'd rather have Abercrombie and Fitch jeans, They're really nice plus those Converse jeans look like crap

My friend did something like this a few months ago. Bought this pair of WESC selverdge jeans on ebay for like $25 bucks.

They were indeed selvedge and the contruction wasn't too bad either. but the weight on the denim was paper thin and they looked ugly beyond belief.

Uniqlo is a lot better, or at least it's known.
The Converse ones feel and look like crap.

Go with Uniqlo.

Oof, reading this thread makes my head hurt.

 

here's a nice TL;DR:

 

Selvedge doesn't equal quality, but there's nothing wrong with buying cheaper clothing if you like it.

 

Some of you kids need to learn to play nice.  Chill out a little, eh?

post #56 of 79

This whole concept is ridiculous.  Half the point of selvedge is to get a quality non-factory product.

Well that was a fun read...OP is delusional and/or a moron...

 

Aren't Gap jeans actually pretty decent? Haven't ever tried a pair but people seem to speak highly of them.

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

 

The OP started off this thread as a simple inquiry.  Then people started the dogpile and insults.  "the point of selvedge is quality, you fucktard" they said.  

 

Contrary to popular belief, there is no "point" to selvedge, it's simply how denim and many other fabrics were made before projectile looms.  It's a feature of the fabric, nothing less, and it's been hyped up beyond all recognition.  Can we really blame people for being so enamored with selvedge?

 

Let's end this nonsense.  There's no need to be shitty.  Chill.

i got a pair of selvedge japanese jeans, i had to cut off the selvedge cuz i needed to taper them, so now they are non selvedge, BUT they are just as good as selevdge jeans, so long as the fit is good and the jeens look good, selvedge or not it wont mater, my selvage jeens are just as good as my non S jeens and the comfort is the same, careful when u spend more money caus sometimes you dun gett much extra in return.

Wait, what? I'm with you that it's hyped to an annoying extent at times, but what do you mean it's a "feature?" Maybe I'm reading you incorrectly but it's almost like you're implying the only difference between it and other fabrics is a colorful stripe down the end. Or do you mean in a sense that silk is a "feature" of a tie in that it's not rayon? Just doesn't make sense to me.
