Naked and famous denim - Page 768

MY NF button downs have really cheap buttons that either came loose or fell apart during the first month. I am too lazy to fix them and now I am thinking if I should cut the sleeves short for the summer

Or just replace the buttons which adds to the value of the shirt.  I have the lightweight chambray shirt and the buttons are tiny. It was useful when the shirt was stiff but has since become a nuisance.

Those ONI collabos look great on her! Just be careful, because all the local denim nerds will be running after her now! tongue.gif

I know the subject has been brought up before, but I can't seem to locate it right now. Would someone please care to explain the difference between the Ducks and the "Chinos?" From what I think I remember hearing, the chinos are apparently just khaki colored denim, but is that true? And since I'm not exactly sure what the Duck fabric is, could someone explain it and compare the two? Pros and Cons to each, perhaps?

Here are some comments on the duck vs chino:

Also noticed you still had some of the Selvedge Chino's on your website.

So a few questions:

1) The chino has a higher weight (13oz) then the duck canvas (10oz). Normally that would imply the chino would be a bit stiffer/heavier fabric. Intuitively I would have thought the opposite. is the duck canvas really lighter then the chino?

2) Would either of these stretch out? If I have a 31/32 waist, would the size 29's stretch out a bit? Or would I be better off going for a size 30?

2) Like any pair of pants worn for a couple weeks, both the duck and chino will stretch out in the waist, so you should be fine as long as you don't have very large thighs.

A few differences between the Selvedge Chino and the Selvedge Duck's...

 

a) Weave - The Duck is a canvas which is a plain twill. Plain twills can be 1 warp by 1 weft (1x1) or 2 warps by 2 wefts (2x2). That's why you don't see a diagonal grain on the Ducks and why you do on the Chino's (or on any denim) which is a 3x1 weave.

b) Weight - Chinos are around 12oz. Ducks are around 10oz. (When we say "oz" we mean "ounces per square yard")

c) Color - Well this is obvious but the color isn't the same. Both are in that beige/brown family, but they are certainly different.

I don't think that's necessarily true because they honestly fit fine other than that. I've looked at the size and shape of the opening for the pockets compared to a few of my other jeans and the opening is simply smaller which is creating this problem
