    Shit, I screwed up and could have saved some $$$ by getting the Uniqlo version! At least if I bought Uniqlo I would be assured of getting a slight step up in quality above H&M or the Gap.

    Honestly this is like comparing the new Gap 1969 denim to KMW. It is amazing how similar the Gap's new offering looks to KMW with the selvege coin pocket, stitching, and back pockets design.

    But since when are companies like Gap or Uniqlo known for originality? While I'm not entirely sure this particular Mr. Olive design is original, I do know the quality is far better and they have been making this exact style for a number of years-- it is not new for them.

    I don't think anyone's saying Mr. Olive copied Uniqlo or vice versa; they're just generic, colored skinny jeans, after all. (The only notable similarity is the aforementioned pattern of lap creases, with no distressing anywhere else, which is characteristic of some Uniqlo jeans.) For what it's worth, Uniqlo has been making T-000s for a while too, and they come in every wash and color you can think of. Personally, I'd buy the Uniqlo version (or even Gap) as long as the fit was there, just because colored jeans aren't something I'd wear all the time, so quality of denim and such isn't as important to me. To each his own, though.

    Picked these up for a good price on eBay. This is my first pair of boots from Timberland Boot Co. If anyone owns them let me know how they are treating you. I am not sure how the canvas will hold up in the wet weather. I am hoping it will not be a problem. Thanks [​IMG]

    It's a very good basic jacket IMHO. The grey ones I saw didn't have brownish/greenish tints though, could it be your camera playing tricks?

    Note: there's a dirty brown/grey jacket that almost looks black depending on the lighting but the one you're wearing is much lighter.
