the beauty of denim is you don't have to get "the brand" you find one that fits you well. When you find the right pair you develop the badass fades and creases. Do a little research for a fit you want rather than getting the cookie cutter cool brand.
And I thought the brand of the jean makes what the jeans look like? I'm not really experienced with buying jeans and stuff, since all I wear is levis, and I'm getting tired of it.
I want those jeans that are sorta skinny, and they look baggy cause of the creases? If you could recommend me some brands, or what I should be looking for in jeans then I'd really appreciate it. Thanks bruh.
You should probably look around more before you settle on any jean. Like a lot. Not trying to boss your wallet around but it would be better to get something you actually like than what your buddies think is 'cool'.
That said Naked and Famous' standard jeans are pretty good for transitioning to the raw denim thing. Good deals too according to the N&F thread.
i heart my grim tims in terms of fit... in terms of quality of denim, weight, and fading properties.. the jeans fucking suck.. they are overpriced if you pay retail but if you cop them for like 150ish i dont see anything wrong with them. i wouldn't buy them again (in fact my gf got them for me)..
other cheap jeans you could look into for better quality denim and fading properties could be APC or N&F. if you got more money I would look into Sammies, PBJ's, Flatheads, Iron Heart.. its all up to what you want/like.
I bought a pair maybe 4 months ago, and to be honest they didn't fade well. A friend of mine has a pair he has washed after wearing for 6 months and they color doesn't look that good. I didn't really like the way they stretched and wore either. That's just my opinion, but I won't buy another pair, they're way overpriced for what they are.
lol @ this thread. determine what you want by lurking/contributing to official [brand] threads. buy what you want. making a thread like this before research makes you look like an idiot. what are you, 14?
nudies aren't a bad place to start if you're just getting into dry denim. you'll be guaranteed to find a cut that flatters you and the fading properties have been tried and confirmed. but they are overpriced, and personally I can't stand the pocket stitching anymore.
