    Did you specify that you wanted to keep that line? My mom is one of those "Asian lady tailors" and it's really tough to know what to do when the customer doesn't tell you specifically that you wanted to keep this seemingly useless selvage line.

    Personally I don't care about selvage lines, but I do look for it in denim because it generally (note: generally) means that there was more thought put into construction.

    yea at first she didn't cut the denim, just widened the selvage line basically. i saw it and told her to bring back the selvage and to how it was further up the leg but she thought i meant to but it :/

    i definitely know to tell them to do the inseam next time lol.

    Any sightings of the skinny fit in the Vancouver area? None at Robson on the weekend.

    It is. Gap doesn't make anything SF would consider truly "skinny."

    It's not going to cause any accidental castration or anything, but that's a good fit.

    yup "skinny" fit, but yeah more like a really slim straight cut, they are barely tapered compared to 511s

    wouldve gone down another
    would of tryed a sz 27 but i dont think gap has any size below 28, and it would of been really uncomfortable on the crotch area due to the low rise, it where these sz 28's and i could barely sit.

    Wow that is really loose in the thighs, is it gonna tighten up at all?
    well this might be due to the fact that i dont have any meat on my legs haha i have really skinny legs.

    i'll try to post some measurements later, these are probably vanity sized, they feel like a sz 30 on the waist, but im happy with them, after a couple of day of used they have gotten a lot more comfortable.

    Looks great on you. But I think they are no longer available on the website. In case anyone is interested in proxying and sending them to India please Pm me.

    what does "yarn-dyed" vs "washed" mean in the real world? does it have any major effect to the denim besides minor visual differences?

    http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...scid=675335002

    http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...d=1&pid=691303

    in the mood for grey denim and not sure which one to get. fit wise: they both have the same waist, thigh, and leg opening measurements, but the only difference is the rise, correct? the yarn-dyed looking kinda like chambray which is interesting.

    opinions? which would you pick between the two and why? thanks!

    also whats the difference between "gray" and grey"? same thing right?


    I tried both and went with the straight cut, which was slimmer and resembled that of my APC NS jeans. I am a 30 in APC NS, and went with a 32 in these. After wearing them for 3-4 times, they are a little looser at the seat, and wider at the thighs and leg than the APCs, but not by too much. Not sure what the deal with the denim is though. They are not selvage (if you care about those things), and they are not as rigid as raw denim (even though they are more rigid than washed denim). The weight of the denim is medium/heavy. Overall a good fit, for a fair price.
