Guys, I don't now jeans as well as the posters on this forum but I have been offered a bunch of 34 waist and 36 waist Griege selvage (redline) jeans. I know they are no longer being made, but I do not know the quality nor the demand if any so I thought I'd ask before making the investment. They seem like pretty straightforward straight leg jeans, the denim is not washed in any funky way nor is it raw. I would need to sell them for about $80 shipped. Could I move these here or on ebay? Thanks.

There may not be many here with waists that large.

I know there are at least a few greige fans here, but they may have girlish waists. Myself, I'd really need pics before committing. Between here and Superfuture, might be able to sell two pairs of 34, maybe one 36.

I don't know anything about greige's e-bay-ability.

I'm not familiar with Griege jeans. Do you have pictures? I think 80 bucks is a bit much for some unknown brand. But if the denim is nice, denimheads would be all over it. But then again, you don't have the popular 30" waist. I wouldn't commit if I were you.

I'm a big fan of Griege stuff, but I have no experience with the denim. If its anything like their other gear, it should be pretty nice.

Thanks guys. I think they are nice and the cut and look is appealing but I'll put my money to other uses and I know 30 and 32 are the popular waist sizes and I can't get those.

More importantly, how do Nudie Baggy Bjorn's fit? Are they really baggy? I can get a pair of those for myself for about $130 but it's kind of a sight unseen deal. The only nice jeans I wear now are the RRL sanforized slim fit bootcuts and I like the fit on those.

Nudie has a fit guide on their page and you can see different people wearing them at mynudies.com.

the bjorns are pretty massive compared to those RRL's, those RRL's basically fit kinda like a slimmer (for the same actual waist measurement) RRDS if you want to compare them to something in the nudie line.

I might be interested in 36's if I saw some pics and they were pretty decent.
