    Rich and Skinny Denim.

    I shit you not, it's a real brand. I couldn't believe it when their sales rep came by my store with a catalog and a straight face.

    http://www.richandskinnyjeans.com/

    They have effectively set women's liberation back 25 years with the opening line of their About section:

    What are two things every girl wishes for???

    1, To be Rich and 2, To be Skinny. Well thanks to Michael Glasser and Joie Rucker, this dream has come true.

    Oh shit, can't decide between Bold Boot or Strong Straight!

    These jeans are like the face of Satan.

    I remember reading an interview on the designer of dbss and he said that the label name had no significance and that it was chosen simply because he thought it sounded cool. I think it does too.

    self edge is really bad, yeah. always creeped me out

    as in the constantly deferred ejaculation, edging oneself tantalizingly toward release before the superegoic 'enjoy your symptom' makes you put it away in shame. for those who enjoy ultra stiff japanese denim.
