    I don't know how easy they are to find but I have a pair of H&M selvedge jeans from the LOGG line at around £50. Nice heavy denim but slightly suspect cut I think.

    Thanks mate. I reckon Audrey, apart from being just stunning in my eyes, helped anticipate the Look as we now know it...

    I can recommend these (the uniqlo raw selvedge), good jeans for the money and they last ages...
    If your a bit bigger/chubbier go for the regular fit, if on the small skinny side go for the slims, they're similar in cut to '67 505s (although the cut is not quite as good, the denim's sound).
    Give em a quick soak before you wear them and they'll last a bit longer.

    Hello folks i'm new, but i've been reading for about a year. Loads of interesting stuff on here, i even like the arguments. I reckon the thread has improved some as it's aged...

    welcome mate, im guessing the uniqlo jeans i posted are the ones you are talking about? i always get my jeans shortened and a half inch or 1 inch turnup sewn in, would it be better to soak them first?

    Thanks DJ. If you soak em first they'll fit a bit better and it'll take the brittleness out of em so they won't wear so quick around the creasing. Mine haven't shrank loads, but you're probably better off soaking em and wearing em for a couple of days before you get them turned up imo. They are raw selvedge though so they'll all be a wee bit different.
    Sometimes they'll sell em dirt cheap, I got a few pairs of their made in Japan selvedge a couple of years ago for £9.99 each.

    Yeah, it's like they went to a jumble sale of an old skinhead and bought one thing each!

    In my experience Edwin can vary as far as the look goes. Sometimes they have that look where even if they're pulled up to your tits, the rear pockets are sewn half-way down the back of the legs so they have that permanently saggy falling-off your-harris look.
    So word to the wise: try 'em on first or at least make sure the rear pockets are kosher.

    Has anybody had experience with the Cordings brand? I found a covert coat(made famous in our set by Crombie) by them at a Salvation Army in a dark brown tweed(!!!) which looks absolutely stunning. Checked their site the other day and they seem to cater more towards the "country gent" set-- but wow! The covert coat is absolutely lovely, and no velvet collar.
    Anybody seen or tried out their city suits? Many are 3-button, hacking pockets w/ticket pocket, single vented, some nice-looking stuff for off the peg. They look very "skinhead" to me.

    I think they look pretty good, slightly updated so they don't look too 're-enactor' but not just too mainstream and dull.

    Just to add that once shrunk they don't fit anything like that loose and jagged mess in the picture. Another stylist that needs to be shot.

    I know this is totally off-topic, but you just made me remember 'Chopper Harris' - the only footballer to be named after two parts of the male anatomy!

    Yeah they have all the right parts but don't look retro in any way(unless one is of the opinion that 3-button suits are out). I might see if I can get to the shop when I'm in London next June.

    I've been eyeing those uniqlo jeans, too - but 'fairly low waisted' is really bad news if you want to tuck your shirt in... Do they sit below the waist?

    Also, they seem to do a regular fit and a straight regular one. Judging from the pictures at least, the straight regular fit looks more like it.

    that makes me a bit hesitant too, i like my jeans to be quite high up like levis.

    I might just buy the levis, i think a 32 waist should be ok because 32s are usually quite roomy for me, im not sure if the leg size will matter because i always have them shortened anyway.
