You could sell your 7s on ebay probably, a lot of people on here did that when they started up.

Well there's a Japanese denim brand called The Steam Locomotive that sells for $350, and is now being sold for $175 after 50%, is that brand any good?

Copped a pair of slim selvedged, they had a saggy ass. Is this common or do I need to size down?

Yeah - actually saw that at my local Gap on their last sale too. Like they really expect their denim to pull weight.

Was at the Old Town Pasadena Gap today and couldn't find the Authentic Fit section (everything else was there: Straight, Skinny, Boot, Easy, Loose, etc.) Was told by a SA that Authentic Fit is being discontinued. Sorry if this is old news but thought I'd bring it up, if anyone is waiting to kop something in Authentic then do it now.

So I ordered a pair of the selvage skinny rigid rinse online, got them today and tried them on. Tight in the thighs, so I did a few lunges to stretch them out. Lo and behold, the seam near the knee is coming apart. I think because the demin is quite thin, along with the stiff rigid rinse is the cause. What should I do? Exchange for a new pair, or maybe wash them to soften up the fabric and close up the seam via shrinkage (although I don't want to wash them yet)? Upon inspection of my other leg, the same thing is happening. And if I try to pull gently apart this seam in other parts, it does come apart relatively easy. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks.

Same thing started happening to my straights, so I moved over to authentics. I don't think the seam will close up by shrinkage (these are sanforized so they don't shrink very much even with hot wash and hot dry). It's not so much the denim or the rinse, but the stitching. If you really like the fit, I would just take it to a competent dry cleaner/alterations place and have them re-stitch or over-stitch the seams in those stress areas. Otherwise, your only other option is to move up a fit like I did, or forget low end rigid jeans altogether. As nice as these are for the money, they're still a relatively low-end mall brand and are built down to a price.

The skinnys were tight in the thigh on me too, but after normal wear they stretch fine. No need for lunges.

oh shit, that is not good. personally, i would take back and never look back ... you dont want to have something you will be wearing everyday that has issues like that. if your after something in terms of entry level selvage that will last, look at n&f, left field or rogue territory. you can actually find something that will hold up for several years for ~ $150.
