    Ugh. That's what I get for getting overly excited and not reading the listing closely. Well, 36 x 30 dudes, holla atcha boy.

    Yeah, I saw (it's the middle fly button in the pic, which won't really be seen anyhow), but for the price it seems like a no-brainer. The denim itself looks pretty much perfect in the picture. The few pair that show up on ebay (many completely destroyed) are literally twice the cost of these. I paid $85 shipped for my pair 6 months ago which was an absolute steal. I guess I'll see when I get them. Really bummed they're not going to fit me though. [​IMG]

    Any chance you could go back for this? I'm always in need of nice staple shirts. That is, if Brianpore hasn't gotten on you about it already.

    Not exactly a brag but something I thought was funny. I had a Craigslist ad looking for a pair of selvedge Nudie Sharp Bengt jeans and some guy emailed me the other day saying he had a pair of selvedge Nudie Lab jeans in my size. I met up with him today to check them out since he was asking a really good price for them and it turns out the "selvedge" was just a strip of fabric that has the selvedge colors that is sewn into the seam so it shows when you cuff them.

    I took a few photos of it. I didnt realize Nudie did stuff like that. Why not just make the damn things selvedge? The weird part is that the fabric they use for the "selvedge" doesnt even look like denim close up.

    Unless of course they werent real Nudies. There is always the possibility that they were knockoffs. I know the Nudie Lab denim is priced pretty high on ebay.

    You'll be pleased to know that as a part of this, a size 38 waist fellow is now walking around completely pantless in my town (~15 pair of Zanellas in awesome colors & patterns)

    If they are, indeed, 30 inseam, feel free to get at me.


    :lurk: And dibs.

    Also thought I'd share with you all pics of my new shoos. C&J shell single monk. NWOT at Marshall's. Cost me a frrrreaking fortune. And, if I'm honest, they're at least a half size too big. But I got me some big socks and am ROCKING THEM.

    The rest of the fit is unlikely to be SF approved (pattern mix; texture mix; color mix) but what the hell? Mostly thrifted or massively discounted retail.
    colors are washed out. SC is black velvet. Shirt is burgundy puppy tooth Tie is green and rust glenplaid. Trou are gray. Square is black with beige and tan.
