Gap Selvage Update: One Year Later

In case you missed it, Skip purchased himself a pair a new pair of Gap Selvage denim… and he got them for a steal!  He asked me how mine were holding up, and so I figured I should do a post on them.  I’ve had my pair for about one year now.  Since then, it had a soak in the tub around the six month mark and then again about a week ago.  I also got them tapered just a tad to get a better fit.  So after one year of fairly moderate wear, I can now say that these jeans have held up very well.  The fades and whiskers have shown up nicely, but there are virtually no “honeycombs” behind the knees (which I think is kind of strange, considering how well they faded elsewhere).  Anyways, if you’re looking for a good entry pair into the selvage/selvedge world, grab a pair of these while they’re cheap.

These are definitely great jeans considering the perfect price attached to them.

  1. Mine look pretty similar to yours and are coming up on the 2 year mark. Soaked 3 times, never washed. I also find it a bit weird that there is almost no honeycombing behind the knees. Even after almost 2 years, it’s super faint.

  2. I hope you’re treating your jeans well, because the quality has gone considerably DOWN! I was kinda shocked when I went to buy a new pair of the selvage. All in all, keep up with the jeans you have, because they’re not worth picking up another pair.
