why am i putting myself through this?
In that case, please let me have the final say. Ernest, actually, topcatnyc is lying. Â Calvin makes all the jeans himself, all the way from weaving the yarn on manual shuttle looms (he does not make the yarn himself, that is the only reason why the denim is not double ring spun Â
) to the final laundering, final resin treatments if any were needed, and pressing. Â Every single pair, made with love, and thinking about a young Brooke Shields all the time. Â Levi's 501's are inferior because, unfortunately, Levi Strauss died after a very long life (up until the 80's, he was still clomp, clomp, clomping away on the looms), and his apprentices unfortunately had not yet mastered his artisanal techniques. Â Not no funny story: Calvin and Levi had a fight because Calvin was becoming famous but refused to acknowledge that Levi was his early master, and it nearly broke Levi's heart. Â Plus he was very old, so he lost. Â Now you know everything there is to know about jeans.
