As worn here:Perhaps more of a Sufu type thread, but just some of my thoughts on the Gap Low Rise Straight Fit Japanese Selvedge jeans they currently stock. Maybe some pictures as well if people are interested. Picked it up yesterday with 30% off Friends and Family coupon. Fit: About 1 size bigger than tagged in the waist, but slims down in the hip/thigh area. A fairly straight down cut, no taper at all. Without a belt, the waist is too big while the hips are a good fit; perhaps my ass got fatter recently. With a belt it fits perfectly. Denim: Fairly light weight denim, kind of rigid. Not as much as brand new raw Nudies or APC, but more like RRL's or Earnest Sewn. A very nice deep blue, not very slubby. Selvedge-line coin pocket. Construction: No complaints, feels fairly solid. Serge stitching on the inseam is nice, even and tight, Details and features: Visible selvedge coin pocket as described earlier, copper rivets, hidden rivets on back pocket, donut-style top button, leather patch. All in all, a decent jean around $60. The color and feel of the denim is quite nice; fits well in the thigh and leg, and I do like the small details like hidden rivets and the leather patch stitching. Although it would have been nicer if the waist was a tad smaller.
