Dayyum that Coochi is sick Nat. Cool provenance too.

In other news, those Gustins I found are stone mint and these
https://www.weargustin.com/store/1468

Retail $179??? Rich for Gustin.

They fit perfect as is unwashed. If I keep, Any chance I can wash without shrinking?

Regarding selvedge, I've seen lots of shitty selvedge. Recently, i saw a pair made by global citizen or something like that. Yer, no Bueno. The selvedge you want are the ones that are made by reputable makers. In the end, it's all about the fit, not skinny, not baggy, but fit just right like a fine tailored suit. Being selvage is a plus because you won't have to worry about the out seam fraying. You can have a pair of washed out jeans but as long as they fit you right, it's not a pair of dad jeans. Selvedge denim is not a trend. It's a classic revival that will remain classic. I'll wear grail selvedge to the day i die.

The description you linked says sanforized, so shrinkage should be very minimal after washing (typ less than 3% so you might notice a *little* loss of inseam).

Eu 54 but fits like a US 42. Sleeves are just a tad long for me (I'm a 34 sleeve so he's a 36, I'm guessing...) but otherwise everything is spot on.

This is true. I own probably about 20 different makers of selvedge jeans and some I've only worn a couple times cause I just didn't like the fit or color and there they sit. That's the disadvantage of ordering online. Two months ago I bought a pair of Isaia selvedge and they were to tight in the thighs and they've never left the house since the first time I put them on. Same thing with a pair of pomegranate naked and famous once I got them I laughed and asked myself when the hell am I going to wear these? Well I never have. Some I roll some I don't it really comes down to how comfortable you feel in them. My favorite out of all of them without choosing by brand would be my luigi borrelli "luxury vintage" selvedge. I wear them unrolled just as jeans and they fit me like a tailored suit. There soft as cashmere and not stiff and just all around my favorite. It gets old wearing stiff raw selvedge a couple of days a week. I alternate between all types of selvedge in all types of colors. I really only buy selvedge cause the makers I usually buy that's all there producing now because of the trend behind it.

I vote for the Eric Clapton Saville Row suits that someone posted in the previous thread.

They will undoubtedly be too small. Thanks though, definitely a great find!

oddly, as you know well. i see many awesome jeans that fail to get a mention when people talk "Grail Denims". and you are 100% right. the Denims are timeless.

- the combinations worn with them are the trends through time. which could be cronologically organized. through the past few decades. 

 

when people say "Dad jeans" i think Seinfeld. or if Kelsey Grammar wore denims at some point.

Awesome find Nataku.  Absurd that something like that finds it way to a thrift store.  Really, that movie is not that old, must be nice to be able to think nothing of getting rid of a recent Cucinelli.  I mean I know these guys are mega rich and probably get all of their clothes for free straight from the designers but still...

@Nataku another late contender for 2015 Thrifties.

My gf made a winterjacket for our pug, vintage tweed, lined with a wool fleece and a fur collar. Semi thriftrelated as all the materials are thrifted.
