    I do believe this reb_bel account is a reseller posting all kinds of items listed on Chinese second-hand trading platform Xianyu or Chinese heritage brands on Taobao.

    My friend is selling his pair of Role Club Underdogs on Xianyu and reb_bel just "sells" my friend's pair on his instagram without asking consent of my friend.

    Speaking of information asymmetry.

    If they're selvedge, better make sure everyone sees it. 3764D297-DDB8-4D84-8C91-8D1136887AB2.jpeg

    I've actually put this second cuff on my recent pair of Mister Freedom jeans. The reason is that they are too long and I don't want to go out and get them hemmed right now. COVID is spiking here again so I'm not about to go out and do that. When I feel more comfortable, I will get them hemmed and do a cuff I like more. I don't think it looks terrible, but I do prefer a simple single or double cuff.

    I’ve been wondering, why dont jean companies swap around the fabric / pattern so the clean edge is on the outside and the rough edge on the inside- seems simple enough.

    That's what they do with selvedge denim. The rough edge is on the inside of the legs. The fancy side outside. EF63CC29-1ED1-4AFA-99F1-1D0BEE0EDB58.jpeg

    I was under the impression that changed with different brands.
    I remember reading that Wranglers claim to fame was that the folded seam was on the outside of the leg instead of the traditional inside of the leg to prevent chaffing when horse riding.

    ^agreed. No two brands are the same although the stitching used on standard Levi’s, which I think is what Mike posted, is the most common.

    The jeans I’m wearing right now have no rough edges on either side

    But those are “selvedge” right? And cost more...apart from Wrangler, which non- pricey brands offer the clean seam on the outside? For Selvedge, I thought both seams were clean with the colored edge on the outer. If I paid $100+ I want both seams to be folded or neat.

    These are the two exterior seams. In most makes (probably owing to the universality of Levi’s) the smooth seem (using the edge price of the denim - in this case selvedge) is on the outside, whereas Wrangler made a big deal of putting it on the inside for cowboys.

    with selvedge it is obvious the outseam is straight vertical and the clean edge, the inner seam is usually single felled the dirty edge probably for more ease in tapering the leg when needed, when the seam is double felled like your example then the pants can not be easily tapered,
    also on the upper leg near the hip the outseam is tapered toward the waist (you see a line of top stitch run below the pocket until mid thigh) probably double felled outseam would make this tapered hip area too bulky.

    perhaps when the outseam is not vertical straight the pants loses its jeans silhouette, and perhaps even creases differently than typical jeans, perhaps looking more chino than jeans in its leg shape, just my guessing

    Old Levi’s (selvedge) have always had the rough non folded single stitched inseam. Many repros are like that and they are far from cheap as you know.

    To be honest this is something that has never bothered me and probably never will :)

    Btw jeans with a double felled outseam (like wrangler) never develop any train tracks. I think it’s the only fade a care about.

    I quite like Norwegian knit pattern style socks. I think Anonymous ism and Chups, both from Japan came out with them like five years ago.
    Five years ago was also, when I started to see this pics of somebody showing off these socks together with the RW or Viberg boots and some selvedge jeans. Whoever came up with it first, it was pretty cool.
    But I'm surprised, that it's still going strong and many find pleasure at taking more or less the same picture again and again and equally apparently lots of people enjoying looking at several of these pics every day.
    But then there is probably always a little detail different, so that it doesn't get boring.
    Boot porn, leather jacket porn, denim porn- same, same, but different.

    Yeah but middle-aged men sock porn!?

    I love looking at clothes but you can't possibly be telling me that there's ANYONE in this world who actually wants to see a photo like this!?

    [​IMG]

    ...at least outside of OnlyFans.

    Random photo that popped up under Raw denim tag. Should help a bit after that horror above.

    I could wear them with slippah (flip flops).
    I rarely wear long pants, only shorts, and never wear shoes, only slippah. For some reason when I do put on a pair of jeans I have to cuff them when wearing slippah, don't know why.
