    It seems like anyone can make a pair of jeans these days. Aside from the materials and dying methods I think the bigger draw now will be the design of them. Which is something to consider for any creative types out there. I know I've been thinking about it for quite sometime.

    I think the best materials and dying methods are still being monopolized by the Japanese for their own brands, atleast it seems that way or maybe other brands like Pace, ALD, Imperial, to name a few, just can't be bothered using unsanforized denim and such...

    I think the cut will still be very important, no matter how good your quality is, if the cut sucks, people aren't gonna be happy wearing it...

    That's what I mean, designing the cut of the jeans to stand out from the rest!

    I think i read somewhere in SuFu that the cut of these jeans will be straight, but who knows.

    I think that's the price for the base model selvage jean. I think the natural indigo streaky would be a bit more. From the pics, quality looks good. Can't tell until you've got them in your hands I guess. $200-$120? If they become more accessible, I'll definitely give them a try.

    I'm more about the denim than the cut of a pair of jeans. Just give me the basic 5 pocket design, I'm happy. And you can't fault the original 501 cut. Sized up/down or in between. There's so many different mills out there producing different denims. There's more than enough to choose from from the major mills, much less the smaller boutique mills. I really want to go to one of those textiles exhibitions where the major mills showcase their new denim lines. That would be awesome.

    As a -my member name says it all- big 501 fan, I am so gratified to read this praise for the original 501 cut. Could not put it better. Had the rare chance to buy a first generation LVC shrink-to-fit reproduction (Ebay), not as tight as I really like it, but still, it ain't getting better than that!

    Humm, I've been invited to go to the launch party at Dutil down here, celebrating the brand.

    I'll be sure to report on quality.

    I like the 30% silk idea, and the organic selvage idea, with the green selvage line that I'd been championing as my own idea in the All Organic in 2010 thread.. Apparently Vancouverites all think the same.

    Here're some pictures.

    Personally pretty big on the Weird Guy fit.

    Hey, I tried on several, and though I'm no expert on the Japanese denim, they feel really good! Unfortunately, the Weird Guy was all sold out in my size...

    I've edited this one post like, three or four times! Somebody say something! Anything!

    Very interesting but i wan't to see a worn in pair. I can never tell if i like the jean or not with these crappy model pics.
    Why don't they have a pic section with worn pairs like Nudie etc?

    is it just me? or do people who can't wear slim cuts seem to be the only ones who really complain about the abundance of them?...

    i'm open to all kinds of cuts, but i do believe that the jean should be worn as the designer intended it to (examples: altering the jean, (not hemming, more so tapering / adjusting the cut) and / or sizing down waaaaaaaay too much, who remembers jeansfun lol)

    I don't really know how I feel about the designer of a pair of jeans.. Why shouldn't you alter them? It's kind of like jamming with the designer to make a pair of jeans that suit your body better.

    Why not alter the shape of 1950's jeans? That is, in fact, what designers have done.. Just taken old cuts that repros are based on, and altered their shape to suit a certain group of people. Why shouldn't we do the same with theirs?

    I've tried all these pairs on, and if anyone would like to ask about the fits, or sizing questions, you can fire away.
