    Any good stretch jeans don't visibly look like it. BR rapid movement looks like a pair of light weight jeans, with no way to tell they are stretch until you put them on.

    As far as comfort.. they're more comfortable than your standard chinos or cords. It's the difference between comfy pants vs. comfy pajamas. They're addictive due to this.

    If you want real selvage jeans, then start with Unbranded. Many fits, and the quality is top notch.

    If you want some stretchy jeggings, then whatever all of these other people are posting.

    Thanks to y'all, now I have to go buy a pair of selvedge jeans. I wasn't going to, but all this talk got me interested. And now, I find out that I can get raw denim, non-selvedge jeans from Jomers for a steal. So now, I have to buy TWO pairs of jeans.

    To make matters worse, I emailed Gustin asking for a fit recommendation, and they were quick in their response and extremely helpful. So now I feel honor-bound to follow through.

    This site is a Schedule 1 drug. Y'all are the pushers.

    This site/forum is bad for that hey? How many watches have I bought because you jokers post image after image of a nice looking Rolex? Or turtleneck? Or AE shoes.

    I think I need to start limiting my exposure here. Either that or start a Dappered support group

    They're only 1% spandex so there's slightly more give than non-stretch ones, but not too much. Those exact ones are what I would recommend for a starter selvedge. Also note that for some reason, they say "skinny" but they're definitely more slim, probably on the straight side of slim. A >15" leg opening is definitely not skinny. But their parent brand, Naked & Famous does this too so who knows.

    If you are really going for the “break them in yourself” rigid selvedge experience, then forget anything with spandex/stretch. Unbranded has a great rep. Naked and Famous is another brand where you can find deals.

    I personally have had good luck with Gap straight selvedge jeans. They can often be had on sale in the $50-ish range. Gap uses good quality Japanese Kaihara denim. You might not be able to find them in stores, but you can order and then return in store if the fit is not right...

    On the plus side, I've bought a bunch of the things posted on the deals and recent purchases threads that weren't posted on the main site. So, even though you all have cost me money since I didn't know who Skoaktiebolaget or Spier and MacKay were and probably would have stuck with Nordstrom and JC Penny otherwise, I have saved as well due to having good prices shared with me. Granted... I saved on items I never would have considered buying until someone posted a cool picture of them, but still.

    And, yes, I am shopping for these same jeans mentioned now, but I can rationalize that too.

    What kind of person, and in what situation, would say something like this? I would imagine it's a small percantage of denim-wearers that are wearing selvage denim, and who really would care enough to comment?

    I have a pair of these Gap jeans, and definitely prefer them to the Uniqlo jeans I have, which have some stretch to them. The Gap ones have broken in nicely over the years, and I'm thinking of buying another pair in the coming weeks to have a less lived-in pair for when I want that look.

    I have the Uniqlo "stretch" selvedge that have a few percentage spandex, and they were real stiff to start. Nothing like the yoga-pant feel of BR rapid movement.
