    Thanks for the link—just what I needed. Some of those huaraches look pretty awesome!

    Looking for a denim jacket.
    Both of these seem pretty decent for raw's that are lighter weight (10-12oz). But I have no experience with neither Edwin or Nudie. Leading towards Edwin purely because I like the look of more of their clothes, but clueless either way in terms of quality, fit etc.

    Nudie (below) - Like that there's no pockets, but the two rows of button hole things on each side of the placket are a little weird if they stand out in person.

    Also, looking for a pair of washed denim for the summer since my old raws just blew out and I don't feel like working in a new pair all summer.
    I haven't bought washed denim in a long time, but like the look of both of these Fabric Brand & Co ones. I have no clue about the brand. They are expensive but are japanese selvedge and the washes look good, which is pretty rare for denim imo. Any body familiar with Fabric Brand? Can't find any measurements anywhere in terms of fit.

    ^^ Probably a better option/look for summer. But that black wash looks pretty dope too.
    Thanks

    I was just in the market for a denim jacket so I was looking at a bunch as well.

    Not familiar with either of these but in my search I came across a bunch of cool ones that you could check out as well unless you are set on one of these.

    -railcar finegoods type 2 denimjacket
    -rogue territory supply jacket
    -apc's new raw denim work jacket.

    Ended up getting the apc and a tan one from rogue territory but all looked really nice. No stores carried the railcar in my area so didnt get to try it on but heard really good things.

    Yeah I've looked at RgT, I'm a big fan of his denim, not sure about the supply jacket though. I'm not a fan of APC at all though. I'd prefer a good washed jacket but "good" washes are hard to come by. Both of those I posted are in the cheaper range (under $200).

    Atrium NYC carries Fabric Brand and they have free shipping and returns so you can try it from there. Looks like they have the light blue jeans but not the black ones.

    I want a more versatile knit. A lot of mine can only be worn specific ways and I end up reaching for the Stark too much.

    Not sure how puffy the bottom of the shawl drapes, maybe the tri-fold neck will balance it.

    Model looks like he's a skinnier and younger version of Bane from the Dark Knight Rises.

    I've been interested in the matching sneakers for so long, but I don't have the spare $$ to plop down on them. Please someone, buy them and take my irrational want away.

    That Junya piece is awful, looks like the sewing job my mom did on my jackets in middle school
