Sorry, but isn’t the second amenent about the right to bear arms? If so, what does that have to do with the US entering the war or making A-2 jackets? A lot of country did so without having this in their constitution. Many enemies were more than willing to step on US soil, they just never got close. Not because civilans had guns, but for many other reasons. Sorry, I’m just lost a bit and can’t really see the point you’re trying to make, nor how it’s all connected.

I see you edited your post. I simply said I like it when famous people and organizations stand up for what they believe in, whereas you came saying Levi is going against the NRA, so you’ll never buy from them again. So...Which one of us shared their political beliefs? ;)

Well to be fair, and I know that isn't very fashionable anymore, Whatsit brought politics into the thread by complaining about Levi giving money to organisations combating the NRA. I have no idea whether the company is doing that BTW.

As a twentieth century American politician once put it: 'Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.'

Looks not too bad. But again, for that price, I'd go with Lutece... Yah, I know, broken record and all that sort of things! :D

Unfortunately jeans are too risky to order from the internet. Very hard to determine the fit based on numbers only. Sounds like a good deal though.

Oh what the...since I already have a package being compiled in a Chinese warehouse, I ordered one of these Bronson 801s to be added. Measurements sound about right except for the wide-is thigh. The rise seems high enough, it's selvedge, for the price it's worth a try. (Especially considering how happy I've been with every Bronson product I've ordered so far.)

My Bronson 801xx arrived today. 14.5 Oz selvedge denim. Not the best quality I've seen, but better than the Levi's 501 I tried on last week, and for half the price. I'm quite satisfied. It has a high rise like I wanted, but it's not too baggy. Vintage, but wearable. Even my girlfriend loves it. They do run large, so I went for a size smaller - 31 instead of 32 - , and I'm glad I did so. I was worried about the 21 cm leg width at the bottom, but it doesn't look too baggy at all. One thing is strange though, the surface of the jeans is full of tiny "hair"/ tiny fibers, as if it was kept on a rug for a long time. Not sure what it is or whether they will rub off. Bottom line is I1m a happy owner of a pair of vintage style selvedge jeans, and for the money it was a no brainer.

Greg, I think the fibers you are referring to are known as "Slub" or "slubbyness" it has to do with how the denim was processed ( But really how it hasn't been processed) as that hair is often seared off with heat in modern manufacturing. were they advertised as "Raw Denim"?

I'm not sure because it was in Chinese, and I google translated it. It was advertised as selvedge, but not raw, I think. What do you suggest I do with them? Will they come off eventually? This fluffyness is not very noticeable, only from real close.
