    no, I get it, I'm just kinda sad that you are gonna probably end up wasting money on jeans that you'll hate because you don't want the fit in the first place =/ at least try them on first if you can

    I don't see why people give guys like Kodiak crap when we have people like sho'nuff around.

    Can we turn this in to a black denim discussion thread? Does anyone have the contet x kmw black 1980s? How do they fade?

    my question is this: what specifically appeals to you about samurais that you cannot find in another brand? is it the cut, the denim (texas cotton), the color? lots of the high end brands make raw jeans. I know they aren't most expensive brand, but I don't like to see someone constantly losing money on puchases =/
    I used to have the same train of thought but after trying to help sho out time and time again I've (and I know I'm not alone on this one) have seen this more like a game; just how many jeans CAN sho buy and sell before finding a new donkey to ride.

    Actually this is NOT the worst this forum have seen from sho.


    He got his (former, anyway) namesake shoe for a reason. He loved shoes, and went from Sutor, Santoni, Edward Green, Vass, and eventually sold them all for a loss(after losing his job). The high point was probably an EG Top Drawer (their higher level MTO service) pair from LeatherSoul, retails over $1,500.

    Oh, and you know the main reason sho now no longer own said shoes? He cleared everything out after losing his job.

    ^^ now there's a good suggestion (Red Ear by Paul Smith)

    has subtle details that are "eye popping", tho the fit isnt slim, it's typical repro unless you get one of the newer modern cuts (non selvedge for most part) in which case the fit can be drainpipe tight

    tbh if I wanted colorfast overdyed black jeans I'd just buy 511s and be done with it

    I like some of the red ear clothing I've seen, but theirs jeans have too many ugly ass goofy details.
