    I still don't get it, are Folsom cuffs one big cuff, or are they rolled/multiply turned-up?

    Tall cuffs with the top turned under so all you see is the seams/inside of the fabric.

    Um, by girls I meant gay guys. Is that better or worse? Should I stop now? [​IMG]

    One guy asked me where I bought my clothes once, but thats about it. Oh...and some chick said I dressed like an old man when I wore a sweater over a button up.

    I however always compliment people that I see wearing things that I recognize. I work at a major mall thats a huge tourist trap so I get to see people rocking everything. The Italians that come wearing Dolce and Prada, The Norwegians rocking nudies, and the Japanese kids rocking every goddamn item of clothing I dream about.

    Some tool the other night told me I looked Italian (v-neck over dress shirt), he used some random crappy reference and said I looked like I should have a Vespa. I asked him a couple times to clarify what he meant, since it didn't sound like a compliment. He shut up.

    That guy really endeared himself to everyone and will not be getting invited back out again.

    You don't own a Vespa? Huh... and you look so much like you should.[​IMG] I hate that crap. I used to have people tell me I look like I was into cars (chevys and all), cuz i dressed slightly rockabilly. I told them no I was just into rock and roll.

    My Mom keeps getting mad at me and says I should get my jeans altered properly.

    Seriously, some people have commented positively that they've never seen jeans like the APC New Standards I wear (I live in Manila). They can't explain it, though.

    Mabuhay! Wearing dry denim in a busy city in the tropics is hardcore----that's enough to get you odd looks, yeah? What denim brands are popular in Manila? Are Japanese brands easier to get?

    Hehe, you wouldn't believe how many comments I've gotten from guys about my outfits. From my WAYWT posts, you can see I'm not even so out there. If only I were gay, romance would be so much easier for me then. Really weird how girls just don't seem to like the concept of the same pair of jeans for 5 months. When are they going to clue in?

    Heh. I got mine in Washington DC from Mauro.

    I think the only dry denim here is part of a small Earnest Sewn inventory in a mall in the commercial district. The salesman didn't know what selvage is, incidentally.

    I don't think anyone's even heard of the Japanese brands. The only upscale denim store I know of carries those Earnest Sewns, True Religion, Antik Denim, PDC, etc.

    i have a friend that loves the denim itself. she doesn't know anything about dry denim. however, she always comments on my nudie ssds (still unwashed) and my sd-103's. she's always like 'they have a really nice texture, they just feel expensive . . .' and continues to rub my leg
