The Denim Debate

The Denim Debate, the brainchild of my good friend Ryan Plett, acts as record and review of nearly two dozen pairs of raw denim from cult labels. For the uninitiated, the site will educate on the ever-growing phenomenon that is selvage denim. Ryan’s accumulated a group of friends to discuss their thoughts for one year as they break in a pair of premium selvage denim.

While I’ve worn selvage jeans for last several years, I’ve hesitated discussing it on all plaidout, because, as the debate demonstrates, the subject of denim is so vast, once breached, it’s possible to talk about it forever. I’ll try it for a year. Tune into The Denim Debate, where I’ll share my thoughts on a pair of jeans from New York’s 3Sixteen.
