I finally found some "Damn Daniel" 

Vans! :D

 

Yeah. I don't think they'll go for more than opening bid, but I only picked them up for the fun of it.

I always go by the "if it's too pretty to blow your nose on it's a pocket square" rule

Since "is this selvedge?" came up again recently, I thought id offer a maybe helpful tip:

really when we talk about selvedge -denim in particular - we're talking narrow shuttle looms. The shuttles are like a little boat, inside sits a bobbin wound with weft and as that shuttle gets passed back and forth the weft runs out. So you end up with tie-ins at the edges, just little tufts of yarn poking out of the very edge, where they switch out the empty for a full bobbin. bobbins are relatively small so there are typically a number of them on a normal length of outseam.

They should be at regular intervals and easy to see with the denimz inside out. I can imagine a scenario where this only happens at one edge, but you have a numbers of selvedges to inspect and they really should be easy to spot.

Spoo I was thinking of you today as I approached the sunglass rack. And kept right on going when I saw the hot mess it was in. Just can't find the time to fux with it.

With squares, as long as its hand rolled and the pattern is nice, I don't care who makes it, and apparently the eBay community does not either.
