Thread...must..not...die. I heard that Paul Smith selvage jeans a la here
are very nice. Also, Varvatos makes a really nice black/yellow selvage edge on a solid straight-leg jean. I'd also like to add that 5EP jeans kick major ass, and I am lusting after a pair that I will probably buy in a couple months when my Nudies have been washed. They're $300, overpriced but worth it. The back pocket stitching is dyed in indigo, so you can't see it when you first buy the jeans but as you ride your horse or whatever or get in fights and wear in the butt, the logo begins to slowly become visible. The cut is slim (slimmer than Nudie RRs), the rise is lower than 501s but not super low, the denim is 13.5oz. A pair of Denime jeans (XX type, basically a copy of 501XX, I think maybe theyre designed after the 37s of 55s but Im not positive) is available on Aero for only 60 GBP - amazing deal. They are at least 14oz, maybe more. They shrink 8-10% after the first wash, as they are not sanforized. www.aeroleatherclothing.com
LA Guy, I know I said that RRs are slimmer than GTO and LTD, but I just realized that I have a very bad comparison. My GTOs and LTDs are too big (31 and 30, respectively). My RRs are 29 and are the slimmest between the three. I don't have any GTOs in 29 so I am probably off a bit.
