1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I'm looking for a pair of beater dark grey jeans. Price range <$100.

    Anybody have recommendations? Thanks a lot.

    Uniqlo is probably the default rec. You could go with Gustin on Kickstarter. Filson sells Tellason under their own name and had them on sale recently.

    What are the benefits of a chain stitch on raw jeans? I looked it up and it said the strength of the stitch would be stronger but its more likely to unwind. isn't that counter intuitive?

    There are no benefits unless you're a hardcore denim nerd. In other words, if you have to ask, don't bother with it.

    awesome - another quick question. If I want to get my raws hemmed, can I use any alteration shop as long as I tell them to preserve the selvedge edge? How much longer (than my inseam for chino size) should I have them hemmed to? I plan on soaking them right before I have em hemmed

    Is there not an "Inspiration" thread somewhere, where people can post images of interesting fits they've found online?

    someone give me some approval on these for around 150 bucks. it's blake welt but i'm mostly questioning that they look too aldo-esque? they seem like they may be disproportionate, but what are your thoughts? please don't tell me to buy ae's or alden or some shit. just wanna hear thoughts if this design seems legit, nobody in the bexley thread is answering me.

    try searching rakuten for brands like julius, the viridi-anne, devoa, rick, etc. If you are a small size, stuff shows up for pretty cheap fairly often.

    anyone know where i can find these or something similar? they used to be worn by the Yugoslavian army. some of the most durable leather and soles ever made (as they would have to be passed down to the next generation of soldiers, who would use them for 4 years or so, keep them immaculate, pass them on). some were from wwii passed on to soldiers up to the late 80's.

    anyways..

    Definitely. I'm a 38 and I wanted to get one at Gravity Pope, but there was no way I was getting in that thing.
