    I can't find the Goughs anywhere, and I could only find the pigment dyed Morrisons, which sucked. This is annoying.
    Yeah, the Gap closer to me doesn't have any selvage at all. I'll have to get back to the other one soon and see if they've gotten any 30's in yet. I'm seriously thinking of grabbing a pair.

    Man I went yesterday hoping to find the Goughs. Plenty of Morrisons but no Goughs to be found...

    if anyone wants some gap gough's let me know, they're on sale for $45 at my store. I just got a pair. the fit is pretty good through the leg, but the cut through the knee and hem opening is pretty big. bigger than my rescues. But for that price, i couldn't say no, and i plan on tapering these to the cut of my samurai's so $40 for a pair of gap selvedge jeans that i can hone my sewing skills on is worth it in my mind. I have too many jeans that i kind of like, and would like to taper them a bit, but am too scared to try. again, if anyone wants these, please let me know, they had a HUGE STACK of these today.

    How do you like your Rescues? I'm thinking of getting a pair. NS's aren't for me, but I want a pair of APC's.

    If possible could you please post a measurement of the thigh width, knee and leg opening size? I have the worst luck in the thigh department and like a knee and leg opening at least 19". Also do you know what the rise is? Somewhere around a 10.25" works good for me. My typical waist size in jeans is 33", do they fit fairly true to size? I think someone also mentioned they have two lengths 30" and 32" but those are measured when cuffed so that 30" is really 32" and 32" is really 34" when uncuffed, is this true? If the measurements seem good I may take you up on the offer, that is a STEAL at $40. Thanks!

    tried em on yesterday. Fit is like the old APC english cut. The selvedge is pretty decent but Im not a fan of the overdone selvedge anywhere we can put it details. Just selvedge outseams and maybe a coin pocket would have been enough. One thing i just noticed in the pics above is the dark blue stitching that may show once enough atari has occured on the back pockets. They are only 39.99 round my way but Im a lil strapped for cash as of now, that and the longest length they had was a 32......but if i can find a 31X34 i'd be all over these in a heart beat.

    I'm a 31-32 waist, but the 30 was still loose on me. If I were you, I'd go for a 30. The leg opening appeared to be at least 19" when I was there. These are a wider straight leg jean. Also, a 32" length fits like a 34" length.

    I don't own a pair - the fit is too big for me, and the price is still too high.

    Damn I wish I could try them on somewhere. I think I'm gonna go gap hunting tomorrow. There has to be a place in CT that has them. If not I'm gonna PM poly800rock.

    I bought a pair of selvage Morrisons (taper cut) a couple days ago for $39.99. No luck on finding any Goughs in 3 Gap stores.

    I saw the Gough for $40 at the downtown Seattle Gap, as well. They're kind of over the top: selvage watch pocket and waistband; hell, even the edges of the little strip of fabric used to attach the tag to the pants are woven back into themselves. I didn't like some of the details-- the odd-looking watch pocket, the fact that "Japanese denim" was printed in gigantic letters on the inside of the waistband in English and Japanese, etc.-- but for $40 you could certainly do worse. I'm not really in a financial position to be able to buy them for people, otherwise I'd offer.

    I exchanged my Morrison for a pair of Gough today. I tried on a 32x30 and 31x32. I normally wear a 32x30, but the 32x30 felt large and disproportioned. The 31x32 was a night and day difference - fit perfectly except for the length. It seems on these, the sizing is 1 higher at the waist and 2 higher for length. I don't know if that means these jeans are unsanforized. I definitely need to hem these as I don't wear a cuff, but I'm not sure if I should hem 2" or 4".

    I'm all for cheap denim. Here are my thoughts. Gough: Currently on sale in store for $39.99, looks like clearance, I dont think they will be on the site. Cut is like APC Rescue. Denim is decent midweight quality. Details are kind of "overselvaged". Corny. I personally hate the rear pocket, I tried to convince myself they would make some sort of nice variety in my jeans rotation, but I think they just look dumb. I'm going to return them, even at $40. BTW the rear pocket lower part is lined. [​IMG] [​IMG] Straight Fit Selvage: On site for $69.99, $49 during 30% weekend. Cut is just slightly, but noticeably narrower than Gough. The denim is also lighter weight. The details are much more straighforward though, which I like. And rainbow selvage. I might keep these for when I want to wear a slim pair in crispy condition. Not sure yet though. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Lastly, something to think about. Uniqlo straight cut, $39.50 all day long... [​IMG]

    it is OD on the selvedge, but it's not exposed.

    So they're not as oversized as people've said? +1 in the waist and true inseam?

    i'm usually a 30 in everything, but my true true waist is closer to a 31. 29 was the smallest they had the other day, so if available, i probably would have gone down to a 28.

    thanks for the sizing, been hungover all day so didn't get this till now anyways.

    man those sizes seem small, I thought this was a full cut. Do the widths get larger as the waist sizes increase do you think? So if I got a 32" waist maybe the knee and legs will be bigger? I'm usually more comfortable with around a 9.5" bottom and knee.

    Because I'm cheap I got a pair of the rigid straight-leg, 30 x 30. I'll post measurements if anyone's interested once they arrive.
