I got them from Liquor Store in B'ham. 80 for the 21oz and 60 for the 14oz. For the money they're great and I believe they fall under Naked and Famous.

Also have to give a recommendation to Albam, fantastic fit on their slimmer range. Would rather Nudies for the price though.

Uniqlo Japanese Selvedge "Slim" rather than the "straight" for me, no taper at the knee so nicely sit on top of shoe. Helps when I got them in an incorrectly marked sale for 29 a couple of years ago in the flagship store! Result.

59 for Japanese selvege denim jeans? Something just does not add up. Believe me thats what you will be paying for the denim alone .... something very fishy. Even if they were made in India for 5$ (and you can imagine what you get for a 5$ garment), thats still doesnt pay for the actual denim (import taxes, shipment, etc.). Selvege is made in max 85cm (about 33") and so you need more than 2mts per trouser, its increadible how a store con sell 59 jeans.   Look nice mind.

I imagine it's quite an effective "loss leader" Claudio. It will definitely get me in the shop, then whilst I'm there I'll have a look at the knitted ties, couple of work shirts / trousers. Again , "whilst I'm here I'll just check if they're still doing pea coats, blazers, chinos ...". I could be a couple of hundred down in no time.

I don't admire the tactic but I can see why it's used.

I recently purchased a pair of Levi 504 after trying on several other brand options at a great outlet in the South Melbourne Markets.
I'm on the slim side & usually simply head for the darkest 501's, but these 504 are a wee narrower & fit nicely everywhere.

Will never buy Levis on-line from overseas again after being caught badly once. My usual size ordered, but fitted up under my armpits & crutch midway to the knees. Spent a mint on adjustments & ended up chucking them out.
