QUOTE:Incidentally, Frutiger, you know when we've admitted our preference for keeping our raw denim as dark as possible for as long as possible? Well I've got these Japanese selvage Wranglers, which I picked up a couple of years ago, and they simply will not fade, probably because they're broken twill.
I'm not a huge Wrangler fan, I must admit, but they fit me perfectly, look great with my Solebox Berlins, and are as dark as the day I bought them. I haven't seen them before or since (I think they were quite limited), and it's rare to get selvage Wranglers, because they usually have that horrible felled outseam, which I don't like at all. Still if anybody is going to do a good job on a pair of Wranglers, it's the Japanese.
Ah, interesting. I may have to have a hunt.
Got a new pair of Albam's last night (picking them up today as they've been shortened). It's there new cut - slight more in the seam but with a more tapered leg. I'll whack some pics up when I've got them.
