    I've debated for the past day or so about purchasing that belt, I just don't think I can justify the price.

    That henley though, may be showing up on my door step soon...

    Everything I've seen from KMW in person is 100% legit.

    KMW is a brand where photos don't do justice to explain the pricetag.

    I put it up with Nice Collective in the sense that the pieces are so good and so well-made that the cost of one jacket is the same as having to buy three similar ones down the road because they didn't hold up the way that one piece would have. It's not disposable fashion, rather, they're staple pieces meant to hang in your closet for years to come.

    Does one still get the 30% off on the first order at Revolve?

    Seriously, don't make me second guess myself on that belt.

    There's a link on their website somewhere that will get you 30 off...some exclusions apply from time to time

    KMW is explicitly excluded from Revolve discounts. This is nothing new.

    Their system of exclusions is erratic and changes from time to time...All of my KMW's that I bought from them were at 20-30% off from whatever the lowest price was at that time...with some distressed Rockers scored for under $100

    I've read and heard enough good things about their denim to consider them in my inevitable inaugural first purchase of high-quality dry jeans. Their 1980 model looks like it'd be suit my wants (straight, but not baggy legs without any taper). Anyone want to give a quick rundown on the different variations of the 1980?

    variatons? there's a version in a heavy twill fabric and then the normal indigo. I think there's a black version as well.

    Perhaps variations wasn't the right word. Fit, I guess. I'm looking at revolve and seeing their slim and skinny fits. Skinny actually looks roomier than the slims, which is why I'm asking about the different fits. Aren't the "skinny" models typically tighter than "slim" fits?

    That belt will last long enough for you to bequeath it to me in your will.

    no they're just he same model from different seasons IIRC. I dunno why revolve does what they do with naming.. but the 1980 has always been.. the 1980. it's a slim straight fit
