Thanks, faux, the fits not bad considering I'm a pretty slim dude, but I'll go slimmer on my next pair. Yeah no worries, there's a significant difference after the beach wash, I'll easily admit. Since they were my 1st raws and inexpensive, I wanted to have a bit of fun with them, so I followed the beach wash guide and washed the same amount. Be ready for some weird looks and to answer some curious people's questions when you do your beach wash. I definitely go my fair share. Nice to spread the word about raw denim though.

I really don't know what the deal with the lack of selvedge is. All the vendors I've seen, including the one I ordered them from, lists them as "nep selvedge denim" It's possible that the denim itself had selvedge, but my jeans didn't include any edge pieces. I don't cuff them, so it's pretty inconsequential, but I won't get any train tracks. Meh.

You hit the nail on the head, skull. <-- lol unintentional pun, I swear.
I love that briefcase, which I snagged on ebay a while back. Just got from a backpacking trip through Europe and used the briefcase for my back pack. It came back looking better than going out, and since it's smaller than those typical backpacking setups, it forced me to pack light.
