So far Robert seems to be one of the few posters who is thinking clearly.

Ew, ouch. You guys can get mighty mean over a pair of jeans.

Well, we all have our priorities.

You're completely missing the point here. What the two guys in question are driving is irrelevant to what they're wearing. The point is, that like fine cars, fine wines, etc.. There are people who take extreme care into making the absolute utmost in quality for a pair of jeans - all things considered. In the shrunken world of internet-enabled global communication, information travels fast. You'll realize that there's some cat out there who devotes nearly every hour of his day to perfecting his own art in damn near every conceivable facet of crafted objects. If you're the kind who has to go balls-deep into a hobby once you've discovered how deep it goes, it's probably best that you don't think of denim as anything more than "just jeans." It can get expensive!

If a few of you guys want to pretend that you have some kind of special and deep knowledge about denim, be my guests. It just makes me laugh harder every time I see another such post.
Are you suggesting that there is deep, intricate knowledge out there, and we just don't have it, or are you suggesting that in terms of denim, there simply is no deep, intricate knowledge? If your claim is the first point, then I'd agree to the extent that most of us haven't been in a denim factory, testing out indigo mixtures and rope-dying jeans. There's always a lot more to learn. If your claim is the latter, then I just can't help but think you're being daft. Do you think there's a single subject of any kind in the world in which there can exist no deep, intricate knowledge? I'm glad you're laughing, but I'm just fucking confused. Have you like, never used the internet before? Never read a magazine about expensive guns, or never seen a TV show about artisan chocolate?

The main thing that strikes me in all of the responses so far is that not one single person has said anything useful, informative or even slightly interesting about denim.
I implore you to check out one of the many pinned threads or the StyleForum Wiki (which you should have read BEFORE you clicked the fucking "New Thread" button), wherein we have thousands of posts of information concerning very specific aspects of jeans and denim, as well as a somewhat comprehensive denim glossary. The reason we're not going out of our way to appease you is because we just kind of expect you to, you know, click on the "READ THIS FIRST" thread before you ask idiotic questions.

Aside from the fact that I find your response extremely condescending... so you mean to go balls deep I might have to spend more than 30 bucks? Damn, I really am missing the point, I guess.

There's no need to try and appease me, my friend. You are all entitled to your opinions. What I really don't care for is rudeness and trying to make yourself seem like something you are not.

Well I wasn't trying to condescend. It just honestly surprises me that someone pops into the "streetwear and DENIM" forum and thinks its absurd that people actually care about the intricacies of their denim.

Are you being facetious (your question)? Of course you need to spend more than 30 if you want the best denim. A LOT more than 30.

What's a premium-label pair of jeans that fit like the 514? Looking for a new pair of raw denim, but I always liked the fit of the 514.
