The Cone Mills White Oak denim factory sits out past the college football stadium and baseball diamonds on the nether edge of downtown Greensboro, North Carolina. 

 

This is a really interesting article about the past and present of this fabled denim from the literary magazine n+1.

Any SF members have an opinion on this denim or the socio-economic factors that brought about it's situation?

Can't say I'm really into the design of those Canterbury's and weird fit/design can make the gorgeous fabric feel wasted. 

 

I'm hoping to get some black Baldwins soon.

Lord knows I've dealt with my share of crappy fits just to get my hands on some really exclusive/rare quality denims  cool.gif

 

As far as those Newman's go I think they're based off the 501s, only slimmer in the seat and thigh.

Nothing exclusive or rare about the denim of those jeans linked, but it's rare to come across jeans that look that exclusively horrible.

I dunno, those mauro jeans you endorsed a few years back take the cake for what is a horrible fit and finish..

 

I believe those were also made of ''rare'' White Oak denim which was quite frankly their ONLY selling point.

And you feel burned because you bought three pairs? Lulz.

Wonder how a dude who comes up with a user name after a brand could ever buy into hype.

I paid $65 or $75 for them New condition. I basically put them away in my huge stack of "exclusive/rare" jeans I will never wear. Maybe they'll be worth something one day. Even with the holes and piss poor construction.

 

I never gave into the hype, mostly because you were the only one hyping them and I don't think anyone here/sufu really listens to what you say.
