I've been lurking on the "other side" a lot recently too, and my wallet is now feeling the pain - jumped in on the legit selvedge thing and Epaulet's "ends for friends" deal. Perhaps one day I'll venture out of the, apparently dreaded, MC Casual and over into the SW+D WAYWT - but for now it's fun watching Caustic's exploits over there.
I got a pair of Epaulets "hand distressed" jeans recently. They're great for people like myself that hate breaking in new selvedge denim. Of course if anyone asks, I'll lie and say the "sick fadez " we're all my doing.
