I'm not saying they're not decent, but on Styleforum I would have thought there'd be a bit more variety/flair

But this would be getting into SW&D territory wouldn't it? I think I know what 'selvedge' or 'raw' denim is, can't say I've ever worn it though. I just get my jeans from the local supermarket now, in the absence of real 501s.

I don't understand the animosity between each side of these forums.

And how might anyone who favors and appreciates Kiton, Alden, etc. really resort to supermarket for something that serves as such a wardrobe staple as denim does?

Not wanting to provoke anyone, but really wondering outloud.
