those seem legit i dont see why people would make fake shrink to fits...evisus are understandable
i started out with levis stf i think they are good if you size right.
dont worry about the xx they are 501stf so your good if thats what you wanted
fades can be good its up to how you wear them theres 2 people who faded them pretty good as far as i know.

Yea du, fake STF's make no sense. But yea what F/22 said, just gotta wear em plenty, soak only when NECESSARY, try to wear em as long as possible before washing. Good luck my du.

ahah yeah... well personally I wouldn't know since I'm new to the whole denim game. But thanks again for the advice.

And last question, was I right when it comes to 501stf sizing? TTS waist and 1-2 size up on inseam?

Hey guys, would you say that Edwin jeans are better than Nudies?

I already have Nudies, but im considering buying some Edwins tomorow, but just unsure if i should get another pair of Nudies...

How does quality etc compare?

is taking in the leg opening possible? i've got a pair of mishka alexei denim and i want the tapering around the leg opening to be a little slimmer. please let me know your success/failure stories!
Nov 29, 2009 @ 03:28
what pair of black slacks should i get that fit like uniqlo t-000's?
Nov 29, 2009 @ 17:55
which method of soaking would result in the least loss of indigo while still shrink dem a good amount?
Nov 29, 2009 @ 19:45
If you want a good amount of shrinking but least loss of dye then I would do hot water and put your jeans inside out, but you will still get indigo loss.

It's possible, as for a taper and the measurement you want. For a slim fit I would do like 7.25" or lower

i wear 30/32. would it be safe if i get some stf and the inseam is 32 or would it get to short?
and i look like goof


Raw inseam shrinks roughly about 2-3" so I would get a longer length in your case.

So guys, why is it when i sag like sorta kinda like half an ass i get that hip flare but i see people such as baho and vinFTW sag like far more and they have no hip flare whatsover.
Dec 02, 2009 @ 05:22
I got $200 to spend...

I was thinkin of checkin out UO (I called them and supposedly they carry Naked&Famous denim for $88 ) but im guessing that's just their unbranded denim...i dunno.

Anyways, any suggestions? I'm trying to save as much $$ as I can and still cop some decent denim and maybe some other clothes..

Will my APCs lose its stiffness if I wear it in snowy weather?


The denim may be more prone to losing its stiffness in a snowy condition but either way, you will eventually lose the rigid feeling after wear.

Dec 03, 2009 @ 01:21
^^^^Losing stiffness doesn't mess up your stacks right.. because if it got really soft then it wouldn't stack, right? sorry, im a noob.

and i've heard that inseam also shrinks for raw denim (imperial dukes). how much would it shrink? WS shrinks 1, so im guessing inseam goes down 1 too? I'm 510 so i'd might just stick with the 36 stock they have.

What does "Dry denim" mean?

Will I get decent fades on them if it's dark denim (indigo) dry selvage?
Dec 03, 2009 @ 07:44
^dry = raw
