    i have a pair of the silver selvage 21 cms but rarely wear them, mainly because i didn't size down enough, but i have to say i find the denim to be really thin and papery, with almost no slub to it at all. maybe that's what you want, i suppose it could work well in fashion-y contexts and would be a good contrast to what you already have. i don't know what they cost now but mine were about £250 and this was a few years ago. seems a lot for what they are.

    Hmm, I just looked up the runway show and none of them had it on. When I get home I'll look at the lookbook I got at the show and see if they have a pic

    I believe that CKC used to (70's-80's?) produce some very high-end, well-finished clothing. After blowing up, over the years it got away from them. Seems (like many) they're coming back around.

    Found a pic from my phone from backstage.

    [​IMG]

    Its basically the wayfarer shape, but the lens extends over the entire frame, and the little pins are driven through the glass into the frame to connect them. It looks boss in person
