    The Denim x Outerwear Thread: Questions & Answers, Pics & Fits

    Based on another thread about a specific pair of denim that steered and veered toward the world of denim at large, there seems to be a need for a "Denim Thread" here.

    So, let's see what you got, what you're happy with, and what you're not. Even more important, let's see some pics and fits. Feel free to bring all your denim related "q's" and hopefully someone will have an "a" to match.

    Have had these for about 10 months. Really nice slubby denim. Sized down because I thought they would stretch, but they didn't! Only now, after about 50 good wears, are they starting to give. No washes yet.

    Ishmael this was very nicely teed up I was right about you being the man for the job!

    A question. I have a pal who lives in Tokyo and another who's moving out there in March. Hence a visit in 2013 is very much on the cards (if only to buy some good jeans ). Can anyone advise on where to buy nice denim in Tokyo please? Those two (my pals) won't have a clue

    Thanks

    Well, if you give me a shout out when you're here, I'd be happy to show you around or point you in the right direction. For now, there are probably some other guides on the web, but I've found this to be a good one.

    http://denimhunters.com/lifestyle/travel/tokyo

    In Tokyo, there are really two spots: Ueno and the Harajuku/Shibuya/Omotesando triangle. Ueno is concentrated. The triangle is scattered boutiques.

    The denim spot in Ueno is located along and below the Yamanote tracks between Ueno and Okachimachi stations. This is an old black market area from after the war that still remains a bit seedy and is also a mecca for ame-kaji (American casual). There you will find both Hinoya and Ueno-Amerika-ya. Both two of the better shops around for a wide selection.

    In the Harajuku/Shibuya/Omotesando triangle you will find a number of boutiques run by denim makers. Pure Blue Japan, Warehouse, Studio D'Artisan, Real McCoys (i.e. Joe McCoys), Freewheelers. I'm sure there are others, but you would need to know where you want to go.

    Hope that helps!

    OK all, here come the questions.
    I've been wearing jeans all my life, either Wranglers, Levi's, or lately Lees.
    I only wear the basic straight cuts.
    They look good with just about everything, wear like iron, and are worry free.
    Just wondering what all these other Japanese brands bring to the table other than added cost?
    Also, what the heck is selvedge?
    Comparison pix would be great.
    Thanks,
    Lenny
