    I was on the verge of hoarding denim but I forced myself to stop. Sold everything I wasn't wearing. I basically have 3 pair in rotation, 1 is 3+ years old and super faded, only wear occasionally to show off da Fadez 2 n00bs, one is currently being worked on and worn almost every day, and one is kinda "on deck", I wear them occasionally but they still look new. Waiting to get beaten down.

    I put the money I saved towards shoes [​IMG]

    Wow...that's tough love. It makes a lot of sense. Bravo.

    I'm not sure that I could bring myself to do that...plus, it might be denim blasphemy, but I don't mind the raw look. [​IMG]

    I love the R&B coat, like the EG jacket, and can stand the NdG coat.

    George Frazier also hated the shawl collar, so you are in good company.

    And there's a new SF x 5EP collab in the pipeline...

    Timeline? Estimated price (or price on the last one)? I'm sure I'd be interested, but that's the sort of thing one has to be ready for.

    Not cheap. I believe the last one was 275 but Mauro made it available at a steep discount - like 210 IIRC.

    Sweet. I missed them the first time around. And only got into raw denim recently.

    Agreed. The more narrow ones have to be a tad shorter to avoid too much break.

    Usually, it's the other way around. The narrower the hem, the better they are for stacking, although there are some who take this to the ridiculous limit.

    Let's hope that she rolls a strike, and then jumps up and down excitedly.

    I'm admittedly denim ignorant. After following the adventures in this thread of some of MC's finest, I decided to take a stab at it myself and picked these up this weekend. These are my first non-bootcut jeans in maybe 15 years. So what do you denim experts think? Pull them down?! LOL [​IMG]
