    But it's not faux distressing---it's a screenprint of jeans on lightweight cotton pants. It's supremely inauthentic in a subtle way, but worked into a fit that's so traditionally americana. It's sort of the antithesis of the japanese obsession with "authentic" repros. Indeed, the subtle extra touches on each of the pieces put a spin on the tired and true white tee/beat up jeans/canvas shoes. Conceptually, I think that's really dope. </xenox>

    Thanks for clearing that up. Technique and idea is cool. However, I am still not a fan.

    I literally roll the sleeves on my suit jackets since otherwise I'm afraid of ripping them or something. Plus they all have cool contrasting lining and functional cuffs which makes it an obvious choice. So many people's minds were blown when I was doing that with my oc x uniqlo jacket at orientation for GEPIK teachers. Anyways nice job in showing how still photos vs real life can be miles apart sq4.

    More boring white t jeans shit, thank you summer (sup nii and everyone else). Back to the best jeans, only bad part is that I get permanent crotch bulge in these, same like nn. And yes I love that spot in my building for taking pics. Gets the real proportions of me and has badass lighting. Other pic with grey shirt is yesterday, rained pretty damn hard that day.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I'll probably play with it a bit. The length is probably that much bigger of an issue because they stack at the top of a pair of bulky high tops.

    Sorry kelvinsense [​IMG] Did you decide to keep yours then?

    I didn't keep them because of height and my jean hems can't go over the top of the shoe like yours, so I have to tuck them. They look great on you though!

    Pics def don't do this concept justice; I'm not crazy about the jeans but the concept is awesome.

    Bottom right pic is, the other ones are my original 5010s that I haven't been able to fit into for a long time. Sized down 5010 is a pretty good cut on me.
