Has the Times ever not blown any cultural phenomenon wildly out of proportion?

I can justify spending a good amount of money on jeans, but $200 is too much for me no matter how much money I have.

It's a sad day when Evisu is known as the "Hip-hop" jean. And please, no one pay $625 for Evisus. Pay $200 for a pair that as arguably better quality and a much, much, MUCH better fit.

I tried the nudie "straight sven" in a shop, dry & selvedge with a little swedish flag inside the waist in place of the traditional nudie logo. Well, it looked really bad on me : saggy butt, high waist, full cut legs. My wife told me it just looked bad as I stepped out the room. The price tag was 245 euros. The ola bootcut dry looked waaaay better with a perfectly shaped ass, and I bought it.

Thanks for the heads up - I was curious about the Straight Sven. It's apparently limited edition.

Really? I was under the impression that Evisu started before APC, but I'm getting old and out of touch with these things...
I am sure there are at least one or two other companies that made selvage jeans between 1983 and 1991, as I'm sure it didn't take eight years for denim mills in Japan to start using their shuttle looms from Cone. To be honest, I know APC did start out with unwashed denim, but are you certain it was always selvage? Did you read some history or an interview or something that I haven't seen? EDIT: Found a little history thing that says Jean Touitou has been using selvage denim since 89.

it's curious because Evisu markets it started it all, etc..
