I WANT MORE SELVEDGE.
ME WANT SELVEDGE!
(Cue honeycomb montage!)
@Nataku, just got the stuff you sent.
I guess I'm going to cuddle with the first pair of selvedge jeans I own tonight. They fit better than any pants I've traded on here! Thanks for the extras as well. So excited to have this 'first' for me :)
I traded nataku something I'd found that he'd wanted for himself and he happened to have a pair of unbranded jeans in my size. I think all my pants are like 2 sizes big in the waist since pants with my waist size always feel weird on me, so I end up with a droopy waist but a good fit everywhere else. These feel great though and will be better when they stretch out a bit.
I'll probably pick up another pair or two over the next little bit as well in addition to the awesome jeans that @size 38R is sending me! So it begins. Damn you guys! :)
Edit: The weirdest thing is that these are sized a 34. Nataku, I know you'd rinsed them but do they fit that small usually?
I see you've discovered why this thread is so awesome with its awesome members!
Oh yeah, let the obsession begin.
you should try the "PM only" method.
@jdrizzy These look simillar to the jeans i kopped for RTC. really good stuff.
and as described to Barrel, T.K is the paul smith of japanese fashion. he has been around for a long time, and is perhaps Japan's most acclaimed designer domestically.
^^ The quirky mix of CM and SW&D that he really pioneered, is now "The popular style" in Japan. his influence can be seen every time you turn on a television to see the celebrities mimiking this trend that creates no division between the two supposed sides of menswear. - my own fits owe a lot to his design philosophy.
his impact on men's fashion in popular culture i would say extends further Than Yohji Yamamoto. because Yohji is seen as more "Fashion" orientated. like a concept, where as T.K makes stuff that is worn by the masses, all day, everyday. and in this context, he IS the Paul Smith of Japanese fashion. a hugely infuential, and underrated designer. with a strong following in modern japanese menswear.
- i would like to think this man (an actual expert) likes my fits, more so than the self proclaimed experts we see on here from time to time. I play by T.K's Rules.
when in Japan, Dress like the Japanese do. -eh, flying monkey?
