    Has anyone given more thought this this topic over the last 2.5 months?

    Are you still hanging on?
    Have you had moments where you've seen what I've described in the original posting?

    My opinion has long been buying them fresh and wearing them until they are worn in will look better than any distressed jeans.

    I have indeed thought deeply about this for the last 75 days.

    Why would anyone buy jeans that look worn? I want my jeans to be perfect when I buy them. And when they develope any creases, fading or wear I throw them away for a new pristine pair. Otherwise you look like some poseur hipster. "Hey look at me, I just paid $500 for these jeans that make me look like I actually work and wore them out just like the plumber"[​IMG]

    You're right. We hipsters now wear twill while the Podunkians are still wearing dad jeans.

    My last pair of new jeans was like putting on cardboard.

    I liked it.

    Unless the general population go on a diet, a pair of slim fit raw denim will never jump the shark, so to speak.

    Did a case of Blue Dick bring on this thread? Because if it did, maybe you should just start wearing underwear again.

    That's a royal "we," isn't it.

    I wear jeans that go from extra dark to extra faded white. By being extra authentically faded to look like authentic jeans, like those worn by the people I'm trying to dress "above," am I dressing "above" them by trying to authentically dress like them or am I only dressing like them?

    Because I hope that everyone that's trying to dress "above" the people we are trying to dress "above" by wearing raw dark jeans will recognise that I'm succeeding in dressing "above" those people, not that I'm dressing like them.

    You sounds like you're suffering from blue balls.

    Well, it's this simple: Dark indigo looks navy; light indigo looks light blue. You can, then, use these in your colour palettes. Colour is colour is colour. It's that simple.
