    Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my proud pleasure to officially unveil the Crate vs. Farinelli's (CVSF) limited-edition jeans:
    [​IMG]
    Details include:
    • White Oak Cone selvage denim of an extremely limited edition
    • Hidden back pocket rivets
    • Reinforced crotch
    • Individually-branded edition numbers on the back patch
    • Tailored belt loops
    • Cloth hanger loops within the waistband
    • Chainstitched hems
    • 108 pairs produced
    • Made in the USA
    This is a single run and you will more than likely never find these jeans reproduced in this fabric, let alone in this cut with these details, ever again. What makes the fabric so special? It has been coated with a dark grey overdye that with wear will scrape off to show deep indigo hues. Dollar for dollar and pound for pound these are the finest jeans available on the market today. Pricing will be $250 retail, $200 with SFD shipped WORLDWIDE FREE. This main post will be updated with more detailed pictures and information, including official launch date, as they arrive. There are also plans for a long-term wear contest with the main prize being the biggest offered to date. A new thread will be created shortly for that as well. NO PREORDERS OR HOLDING. FIRST COME FIRST SERVED.

    Ummm... Fit. I'm assuming it's a straight leg, but with all the bells and whistles, I'd assume it's got some crazy sizing shit that allows you to get any fit you want. Or something like that. I bet there's a toaster attached too.

    it is a nice fit. not too slim, not too big.

    I'm sure these will be incredible, although I'd imagine there will easily be 100 SFers alone that will want a pair...
