New gap denim - Page 102
Styleforum Top Picks
I just bought a pair of these dark brown jeans on sale at a store for about $40:
I like the color as it is. They came with a note saying that they will lose color when washed. How much color will they use? I don't want these things to fade to a khaki color or something like that; I bought them because I liked how they looked in the store.
(As an aside, I don't understand why all dark or colored jeans seem to have these notes. My whole life I've bought various cotton clothes in all sorts of light and dark colors and they never have issues with fading, at least not until I've had something for years.)

I believe they're the type that were made in Bangladesh.
Seattle has a 32x30 and a 34x28 Straight of the old style good "Made in China" selvedge.
Dude there said the skinny selvedge was all heavily discounted now to get rid of all the new "Made in Bangladesh" fabric.
He knew exactly what I was doing when I was searching the stacks for the old denim. Makes me think that GAP corporate knows as well. Hopefully will lead to better quality denim.
