There's nothing wrong with a shortcut every now and then. Quality denim mills haven't stopped producing the selvedge material they're known for—they just have it undergo a hearty wash or two before they make a comfortable pair of jeans. These stonewashed versions still fit like a modern jean should—slim at the seat and thigh with a nice clean taper throughout the leg. One thing they all have in common? They're a hell of a lot easier to wear in warm weather than a raw and rigid pair.
