starting fit threads is fine since we are trying to build a database here of how different jeans look and fit, and eventually it would be nice to see one thread for each brand in which sizing q's and fit pics can be addressed.

The Evolution of Jeans: Pictures, Scones and Tea - superfuture :: supertalk

we will never be able to build something like that on this forum if everyone who is running out and buying dry denim continues to shit up the thread with almost new jeans. forgive me for trying to protect the integrity of this thread.

i would also like to add that while i may have been rude in the way i went about stating my thoughts, i don't think in any way that it merited a personal attack such as the one you posted in response. i find it quite contradictory that you would make the argument that you do yet take it to the level of a personal attack over the internet based purely on assumptions about someone/thing that you have never met and know nothing about. call me an asshole if you want, but you have never and will never see me insult others in the way you did to me.
