    There is this Kickstarter up right now for Brave Star Selvage:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...enim-built-by-you-hand-crafted-by-us?ref=live

    They are trying to create a semi-bespoke service: Select threads, buttons, etc.

    Kickstarter jeans are not fully customizable, it's just a prelaunch idea that will fund the customization platform.

    Their stuff is pretty nice, I reviewed it on my blog. Think of it as similar design to Unbranded, but better execution.

    In my experience with Unbranded, they have relatively plain features. Untucked belt loops, simple yoke construction, nothing risky or unique. Similar case here, but the stitching is higher quality and more precise: For example, the belt-loops are consistently in line with the waistband stitching, and the hemline is more tightly assembled, less deviation in the fly-button positioning, etc.

    Basically, I think you can tell a difference in workmanship comparing something handmade in a Factory in San Francisco compared to the quality of goods coming out of Macau.

    Also, the pockets are not insanely shallow.
