    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    This is true. I own probably about 20 different makers of selvedge jeans and some I've only worn a couple times cause I just didn't like the fit or color and there they sit. That's the disadvantage of ordering online. Two months ago I bought a pair of Isaia selvedge and they were to tight in the thighs and they've never left the house since the first time I put them on. Same thing with a pair of pomegranate naked and famous once I got them I laughed and asked myself when the hell am I going to wear these? Well I never have. Some I roll some I don't it really comes down to how comfortable you feel in them. My favorite out of all of them without choosing by brand would be my luigi borrelli "luxury vintage" selvedge. I wear them unrolled just as jeans and they fit me like a tailored suit. There soft as cashmere and not stiff and just all around my favorite. It gets old wearing stiff raw selvedge a couple of days a week. I alternate between all types of selvedge in all types of colors. I really only buy selvedge cause the makers I usually buy that's all there producing now because of the trend behind it.

    They will undoubtedly be too small. Thanks though, definitely a great find!

    oddly, as you know well. i see many awesome jeans that fail to get a mention when people talk "Grail Denims". and you are 100% right. the Denims are timeless.
    - the combinations worn with them are the trends through time. which could be cronologically organized. through the past few decades.

    when people say "Dad jeans" i think Seinfeld. or if Kelsey Grammar wore denims at some point.

    Awesome find Nataku. Absurd that something like that finds it way to a thrift store. Really, that movie is not that old, must be nice to be able to think nothing of getting rid of a recent Cucinelli. I mean I know these guys are mega rich and probably get all of their clothes for free straight from the designers but still...

    My gf made a winterjacket for our pug, vintage tweed, lined with a wool fleece and a fur collar. Semi thriftrelated as all the materials are thrifted.

    He's a pug, they look like they are in a constant state of depression. He actually likes the jacket, especially the hood!

    Love pugs. My wife and I are suckers for the smushed faces. We have a pug and a boxer.

    Yours looks about as happy as mine when the wife tries to dress her up. Dogs don't belong in clothes lol.

    I'm guessing this is for me, unfortunately (for me) no. Couldn't find the time to get away from the in-laws...

    I'm done with the arguing. Life has thrown bigger fish to fry my way.

    When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade. When life throws me lemons, I make coffee.

    LOL. If you ever see me drinking Starbucks or Dunkin, please shoot me... I usually get my coffee beans from Novo Coffee Roasters (a small Denver chain which my local cafe gets their beans from).

    The cup is from Starbucks, but it was a gift from a friend in Hawaii.
