I don't think the raw version had poly as the stretch blend but regardless raw tends to not have actual stretch. I find this to be the same on slp raw pairs. Washed generally have the stretch we all are looking for. Again I'm basing this what I seen in other brands as I haven't felt these yet.

I worn my grey pairs with any light colored footwear, black, all red. They go with just about anything washed denim works with. If you are looking for a particular, I really like the common projects ss16 colors. I think they will go nicely with a pair of those

Wish my nimbus wash still fit me. They were so soft and stretched out, taken to the tailors 3 times between raw stretching out and me losing tons of weight

I'm a fan of soft denim too. Stiff denim takes too long to break in for me too. I hate that too tight feeling. Eventually they do stretch though and for me it's always too big at the end.

I'm also really looking forward to that cardigan, hope it gets produced.  

 

Is it really a toss up for when these items drop?

^ don't hold your breath.

I waited all last season for a cardigan to drop that was even in the campaign photos and it never dropped. Smh.

A couple things from reading above. Selvedge doesn't make the jeans better. It's simply using the selvedge line (meaning the very edge of the material when produced on a narrow, normally vintage loom) to make the outside seams of the denim. In order to make a pair of jeans show the selvedge, that seam has to be perfectly straight. To make that happen, you have to make the shaping come from other places in the jeans. When you have a jean fit like these (or an SLP d02), it's very hard to get that fit and kept the selvedge intact and straight down on the outside seam, which is why you rarerly, if ever, see it on a fit like this.

Also, 3x1 as compared to a 2x1 is simply referring to a twill pattern. Each woven has their own traits, which is why they are chosen or used (if the designer or fabric technician is very technical). However, a 3x1 twill isn't more valuable or more prized than a 2x1.

A lot of terms surrounding all these items are very misunderstood in here. There are many places that you can learn about these things and I'd encourage you to do so, before you blindly proclaim things.

Ok, I'm going back to actual work.

Stretch is a must on skinny jeans for me.. Would like to know time line on coast with stretch. If it's gonna be a while I'll just go ahead and cop the scarabs

Hey jbidwal, I think he was talking about getting the Scarab if they aren't making a Coast in stretch. Scarabs are 98% cotton, 2% poly
