@glorydaysI just checked out 3sixteen's site and holy cow did they expand their catalog. Last time I checked their site, they maybe only had like six cuts/washes of denim hahahah. I always wanted a pair of their shadow denim since day one too. Annnnnnnnd it looks like they have a 12oz version I have to cop now, you asshole! 🤬

the made in japan cuts are labeled such but the price is fucking horrendous

There may be proxy services that can alleviate the price if it's due to import tax mark-ups unless it's still expensive in Japan. From what I've read a while back, Momotaro etc. is cheaper if copped from Japan. Always digged PBJ with the leaf on the back pocket too. 

 

I use a proxy service to get stuff from Y!J.

Somewhere in this thread I think IHU said that Evisu was bought out by the paper denim owner. Lots of info in this thread.

@glorydaysyasss BiG SoHo I swear has so many PBJ'S unless they're the sole supplier stateside. I've been out of the denim loop for a hot minute so I'm probably wrong. Have you seen the documentary Self Edge produced or Blue Gold?

yea i did...i love self edge, the store is fucking amazing

 

but i still gotta look up blue gold

So ive been on the hunt for heavier jeans for a minute. I just started reading up on what selvedge is. Im looking for them for work, but I'll be damned if I pay $300 for some work pants.

 

I found a company called unbranded with 14 oz selvedge for like $88 a pair. Does anybody have any experience with this unbrand brand?

I'm wearing unbranded right now and i'm very happy with them...i beat the shit out of them and they're holding up

 

but they're made in china to keep costs down which is, imo, the only down side

look at brave star selvage

I think china gets a bad rap. Its unfortunate because China produces some top quality shit. Ive been on both ends of the China deal. Like years ago my wife ordered some leggings from a Chinese ebay company and the ad stated one size fits all. My wife is a shorty and the top of the leggings didnt even come up to the bottom of her crotch. We laughed about it and she secided that they were probably one size fits all chinese children. 

 

Do you think the unbranded jeans would be constructed better of they were from somewhere else or is your issue with slave labor practices?

its really the mystery behind the manufacturing...unbranded doesnt really put alot of info out on the actual factory where the jeans are made

 

this would make me weary of labor practices and whether the people who made the jeans are doing ok
