If it weren't selvage, the raw edges would be serged, bias taped, or the outseam would be felled. (If none of these, the edges would ravel.)

I love you like a brother, dude!

I'm telling you, wait until I see if I can tweak them. The foster care plan may still be alive....

Is there non-selvage denim that doesn't ravel? What other options exist for finishing the outseam of jeans?

just you keep your flappy mouth shut.

 

actually in my neck of the woods it's pretty amazing to see what some of these clerks put up with. recently watched a guy working solo in a GW foil 3 theft attempts in about 20 min. i asked him about it and he laughed, apparently it's just a super routine part of the job. the clerk also has face tattoos btw. 

 

the other week (different spot) i watched a lady ask to see something out of the case and then fucking walk out with it. the clerk goes outside and is like "hey that's not yours i just pulled it out of the case so you can look at it" and then there was a whole back and forth and finally the clerk was like "whatever. don't come back". 

 

i once had a homeless guy complain how hard it was to steal from GW. he was asking me what i thought the best approach was to steal these pants. he was going on and on bitching about the prices. of course in reality he was asking me to buy him a pair of pants. i was like "yeah whatever you think is best guy" and walked off and sure enough 5 minutes later some other dude is paying for his pants. lol.

 

people will say anything and most people will believe anything. the clerks near me are so hardboiled at this point none of this shit phases them. i dunno about the shops run by volunteers tho. they'd probably call the cops lol.

Selvedge. I saw the same pair in Japan.

Do I have the score correct:

Two votes for selvedge, two votes against?

I don't know denim much, but something looked off to me about it. If it were selvedge, wouldn't the pink carry on all the way through the hem??
