    jean shops look pretty good but i can't get over how they use that "comic san serif" font for the jeans.. Pretty much ruins the general aesthetics of the jean in a way

    lol. Yeah, it's like I'm staring at the font every single second I'm wearing my jeans...

    whats the deal? Im not ragging on the brand for the quality or anything like that. I've heard nothing but good. All i'm saying is, comic sans serif is a silly ass choice for jeans like this. Comic sans serif is more suited for clown pants, not "jawnz." It's just one person's opinion, my bad b if I made you mad or offended ya...

    Not offended at all but you're showcasing some serious OCD if the font on the inside tag is what's stopping you from wearing a pair of jeans. It's pretty funny.

    i never said i wouldn't wear these because of the font. I said the use of comic sans serif makes the inside (or wherever its used) look "silly". Apologies if I was unclear or confusing.

    I don't think that it is OCD. Representing your brand properly is really important.

    are you talking about the font on the rectangular orange tag on the inside of the waistband?

    I've always liked it, very reminiscent of uniform work pants and rather unique. To each their own though. I enjoy mine and my belt as well, I haven't found a single thing I dislike about either actually.

    for me, comic sans serif reminds me of "3rd grade" birthday party invitation flier made from "printshop" or something. Again, the typeface used doesn't take anything away from the quality of jean shops but as slide13 mentioned, "different folks, different yokes"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_Sans "The Comic Sans font has been used on several products, including the tags on Beanie Babies (since the late 1990s) and the 2004 Canada Day 25-cent collector coin.[5] As well as featuring in The Sims series of video games." "the irreverence of Comic Sans is often at odds with a serious message."

    Two things, neither of which contribute anything much to this thread:

    1. http://achewood.com/index.php?date=07052007

    2. Skunkworks, I just watched Goodfellas again and noticed that Clay Davis is Ray Liotta's brother's doctor at the very end of the movie. Pretty awesome, but, then, so is Goodfellas.
