Went back to gap today and picked up two more rigid selvages in 34x32.. i gotta say - love the straight fit. The authentic is nice because it really does mirror the 501 fit a lot and its real comfy, but the straight fit is a lil more fitting and less baggy so to speak (not that the authentic cut is baggy at all, just compared to one other).
I also noticed that with my buckleback authentics they have a selvage line on top of the back pockets as well as the rear belt loop, however the non-buckleback authentics only have one line across the back pocket like regular gap denim and the non-buckleback straights (not sure if they do have buckleback in straight..?) have no back pocket design (which i prefer). I'm excited to see how these jeans turn out, probably going to put the new authentic pickup in the closet and wear in on the other two pairs.
I picked up a pair of Authentic fits last night and they are NICE. Really, really nice, especially at under $100 all in.
Should I treat these like people treat the $300 jeans, aka not wash them for the first 6 months? Or is this a different type of jean?
