    Yeah, and upon checking them out closer they do indeed appear to be selvage, so it's an even better deal. I figured they'd make a cool project jean and also, I am giving my speech on Tuesday about raw denim and I needed some to wear to help me get that A+.

    it's a faked selvedge. there is topstitching on it, so you'll see that it's not truely selvedge, but made to look like selvedge.

    Ah ok. I've never owned any selvage, so when I get my APCs in a month I will be sure to compare the two as I've only recently started branching out to raw denim. I am trying to make sure I do it right though so I don't waste a bunch of money on crap. I've been reading up on it since I came to the forums but haven't owned any before these and the Nudies.

    Nom de Guerre classic fit jeans. I got the size 30. They jump from size 30 to size 32. The size 32 would be way too large. The size 30 are slightly small in the waist and upper thighs, but a good fit otherwise. I am hoping that they stretch out just a pinch. Maybe an inch in the waist. and another in the thighs.

    Also received my Engineered Garments Herringbone bedford and a olive green thermal by Nom de Guerre. Waiting on my Bblessing hoodie. Then, I must stop buying.


    LA Guy - how much did these end up stretching out? I wear a 29 in APC NS, and am thinking about going with a 30 in NdG. I'm expecting them to be very tight in the beginning, but hoping they will stretch a lot...

    in my experience with ndg jeans, they stretch rather quickly

    Thanks Poly. I'm a normally a 31, so I either need to size up or or size down. I've read that they run small, but also that they stretch quite a bit. Right now I'm leaning toward "sizing down" and hoping I can button them up.

    thanks, it was one sitting, about 3 hours, on the back of my forearm. Looks much more vivid irl, my one shot photo doesnt do it justice. If anyone in socal is looking for a new-skool americana style artist, check out my boy Sean O'Neil at Classic Tattoo in Fullerton and Action Tattoo in Yorba Linda. Really clean work, knows his shit.

    Who...plenty of room in the "Hatin' em" club my man. [​IMG]

    I have this coming in the mail but I have a feeling its gonna be too big. Its a medium, 38-40, 26.5" long. Thats all the measurements I could find on JG Glover. I hope it fits cuz I really dig the look. I wish STP had better measurements or at least sleeve lengths.[/IMG]
    How did this end up fitting? I was considering buying one, but figured I'd be stuck with something designed to fit a paunchy old man. Looks nice though.

    Its coming wednesday. Ill take measurements before I send it back, which Im 85%sure Im going to do. I could get lucky though I believe medium is the smallest size this co. makes but who knows. Youd think clothing companies would have measurements but that makes too much sense.

    No,
    Its sold out everywhere and I really wanted it. I happened to speak to him randomly the other day and explained to him the situation so he just said he could just give me a sample that i can come and pick up sometime this week...

    Went to HM today and picked up a grey scoop neck sweater along with some black cotton trousers (just like the whites I had).
