The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1645

post #24661 of 57794
Funny story. My wife and I are browsing a Saks Off 5th today. The 7 month old got sick of the stroller so I'm carrying her and my wife is pushing around the stroller. She goes to try a bunch of stuff on and takes the stroller and baby stuff with her.

5 minutes in I think 'I should have grabbed a burp rag'. No more than 30 seconds later, my daughter projectile vomits all over the floor. Probably bad karma but I looked around and bolted to the next department with a quickness. Haha.

the deal with drafting patterns using selvedge is the outseam is obviously ruler straight, so all the taper, shaping etc happens on the inseam. it kind of handcuffs the pattern and non-selvedge denim lets you taper both the inseam and outseam. people are shaped differently, have different aesthetics, so whatever. if it works it works. 

 

lay out a pair of old 501s inside out and you'll see, only the uppermost 6" or so jog in towards the waistband, and that's all the shape you get. the rub is that the yoke in the back, the waistband, and the pockets all draw in when you soak or wash and that's a bunch of additional shaping through the hips which is kind of essential to the 501 fit. of course that doesn't happen with sanforized denim. or if you don't ever wash. but it's a really important aspect of stf denim that goes sort of under the radar around here. but most folks seem to favor sanforized. to each their own.

 

imo it's funny how this denimz stuff really has people tipping their hands lately.

What size are those Gustins, and are they available? They look pretty sweet.

They are available. They're marked as 32 but I haven't measured yet. Let me know if you're interested.

Is this LL Bean Signature? It's not the current label, but it's too new to be vintage mainline.
