If you can find measurements of both via Google in less than 30 seconds, why ask?

Because I see quite different measurements for KMW on Context and Blueowl, and they don't provide back rise which I can't find anywhere.

 

It seems generally KMW 1980 is a little slimmer and has lower rise than 3Sixteen SL series, am I correct?

btw, context measurements are absolute bullshit. i have no idea what they measure to get the numbers they are posting. makes no sense.

do slubby denim tend to blow out sooner because it uses shorter cotton fibers? It looks cool but I don't want to buy some expensive jeans and have it fall apart faster

and what's the opposite of slubby denim or is there such a thing?

Slubby = textured. Nonslubby = nontextured, aka normal...?

Where would you get the idea that slubby=shorter fibers?

I picked up a pair of Levi's Made and Crafted yesterday. Unlike other Made and Crafted Jeans I've seen, these were made in the USA and the denim is NOT selvedge. Does anyone know where the denim might have come from?

Not really surprised that it's not selvage, even though they offer a several selvage models, because of how it replaced the Capital E line (but not as a rebirth) and because the line itself is a riff off of older styles without being faithful reproductions as is the way with LVC. LVC lite it ain't.

That said, the talk is that they use fabrics from factories they normally source like Cone, Kurabo, Kaihara, etc. that is already used in their other lines.

Thanks. The fabric feels pretty substantial, the details are nice and they fit well. Plus, they were only $68, so I can't complain.

Not really... All slubby denim is textured/has a textured look. But not all textured denim is slubby. As far as I know slub refers to inconsistencies in the weave.

i read it somewere on this forum that they mix in shorter fibers in the yarn or something, i forgot where

just to be clear, slubby means a tiny bit fuzzy right? kinda like this http://blueowl.us/scripts/psp/VB_Bridge3.dll?VBEXE=f:\InetPub\scripts\psp\bin\Shop.Prodt.Detail.exe&SKU=7964001&LANGUAGE=US

Read my post regarding slub.

By the way, this is what is stated on the product info page you linked to

" The denim has an irregular warp size and is woven at a dangerously low tension in order to achieve the beautiful old-school texture and apprearance".

So, no mixing of fibers in any kind of wat.

Slubby denim doesn't necessarily use shorter fibers. Some slubby denims do, some don't.

I would say that the opposite of slubby denim is smooth denim.

Certain types of slubby denim may mix in shorter fibers, but that's not something that defines whether denim is slubby or not.

"Slubby" has nothing to do with "fuzzy". All denim, slubby or not, gets fuzzy as it wears. "Slubby" means that the denim uses irregular width yarns, so the denim comes out bumpy and irregular in texture, rather than smooth.
