I have to disagree with you. I just got the authentic selvage via online order, and also tried the resin rinse in-store. They are similar, but not identical. The selvage looks and feels different to me, worth a few extra bucks, imo. Hmm... do you think so? To me they feel identical but I'm not a denim buff. Do stores do anything to clothes to soften them up before they're put out on the shelves/racks? In any case, worth a few extra bucks but 40% more?
