Well with Sizing I was looking for a more fitted look.. I wear about a 30-31 in stuff like Levis 5'11.

And recommended brands well.. just recommend some brands..

depends on how much you want to spend

apc/3sixteen are decent brands on the cheaper size

iron heart, imperial, flat head on the nicer side.

check out self edges website for some cuts.

fitted cuts = apc petit standard/new cure, 3sixteen st100x, iron heart 301/666, imperial SExI14, flat head se05bsp

sizing depends on the brand. there are other brands and cuts that will be what you are looking for these are just the ones i have experience with.

hey man. As far as i know, the Slim Guy = straight slim fit. Skinny Guy = Skinny fit with regular rise. As for the Weird Guy = they're a little wider at the thigh compared to the Skinny Guy

If you wanna know about any fits google any brand on this site to find a store and the desxription will tell you the kind of fit. Or surf through the threads and take a look over at superfuture.com

I was told that APCs are a good intro to raws. I got New Cures and I love them although they aren't selvedged, that's my only gripe.

wrong.

it's a matter of preference and body type when it comes to models & sizing. but you should definitely check out selfedge.com, I'm sure you'll find what you need there without having to ask any questions. if not, get apc's (most people recommend sizing down in apc's)

Honestly, best advice for getting the perfect fit for your denim is trial and error through different fits/sizes/brands.

any suggestions for the average joe's as in height wise. I'm looking for some in size 30 BUT with 30 inseam. APC's, N&F are all too long( around 34-36 inseam if I'm not mistaken) any suggestions? I don't really wait them to get tailored cause then the overall fit is ruined.jafeel?

I don't feel. I dont understand how hemming them would ruin the overall fit...
Any tailor can do it for like less than $5.
Or just cuff up 1.5 inches and let it stack.

I usually wear 30 inseam, but I'm rocking 36 inseam Unbranded.
