Pop Quiz: Denim Quality

I was going to stick this in my jeans entry on denim processing but then decided it’d get buried. So, it stands alone.

Tell me boys and girls, which of the two denim samples below is of higher quality? One is purportedly great Japanese denim circa $9 a yard and the other is -in the words of my host- “crap”.


For what it’s worth, I thought the crap denim was the better one. Although I’m properly chastised and corrected, I still like my selection better. I guess I’m doomed to wear crap jeans.  No surprise there.  By the way, I also learned that “mom jeans” have bifurcated butts. Mono-butt jeans are the “cool” ones.
