    There's something unwholesome about this site, like undressing the dude...why?


    But the undressing the girl part... [​IMG]

    Did they get those nasty shoes from the Yoox model? Ugh.

    Some of the cuts look decent so if the fabric and construction is okay it could be an all right beater pair for the price. Not loving the brand image though.

    the slim model looks like the nudie rr or ss fit but with more traditional pockets

    something about the crotch looks a bit weird on all of them

    i'd buy a pair, but i hate exposed selvage on coin pockets

    The hardware is Not Japanese and Brandon wouldn't specify where it came from the patch on one is recycled paper and the rest are leather.
    There is NO natural indigo but one jean is a veggie dye.
    All and all would you wear this or APC?

    How sure are you that it's Japanese Denim? From what I've read on this thread at $25 USD a pop for FOB, it sounds like it's Chinese or possibly Turkish.

    Denim news says that they are Japanese denim.

    So I've read, but for somebody who claims;

    $25 USD FOB seems a little suspect. If it's true though, I want to know which mill he's getting it from! [​IMG]

    If the Big Slub is in my size I'm all over it... need some streaky denim in my life for sure.

    Not really understanding the hate for this company right now, in terms of price point it's competing with APC and Nudie and it's offering products that neither of it's rivals can boast right now.

    I dont think its hate. There are some concerns.
    I broke down the math and since it is beign sewn in Canada and the denim comes from Japan it could work. The hardware and lack of hardware is not japanese and most likely from China. Not saying that there aren't good mills in china there are.
    He wouldn't disclose much info that's why I started this thread.
    Is it worth me buying or not?
    Since you guys and super future are the bulk of raw denim consumers is it worth me placing an order?

    At the price point I would definitely consider the big slub.

    If I were looking to buy jeans right now I would probably pick up a pair of the Big Slub Indigo Selvedge.. Unfortunately I have too much denim as it is..
