has anyone ever watched a video from the 70's or 80's and noticed people wearing selvage denim? i was just watching an old aztec camera video (oblivious) and noticed it for the first time.

It's funny that you mention that, because just the other day, I was watching Swingers for the 129381209th time, and noticed that the character Sue wears selvage denim with what I think were chelsea boots; I'm not positive about the latter though.

You really wouldn't be able to tell unless the jeans are cuffed a la Brando in the '50s.

I wouldnt be surprised since Sue was supposed to be a "rockabilly guy" and before the selvage craze of the past couple years where it's now a household word, RABs were pretty much the only ones that specifically sought out selvage Levis as everyday wear, esp in the late 90s when Swingers came out.
