Just got some APC. I was wondering, how do you keep the same stacks after you wash or soak? Cuz after I wash, I usually stretch the legs length-wise so that they are the same length. How can I keep the stacks?? thanks
what cut are the levi 501's modeled after?
Originally posted by Inactive UserWhy would you stretch the legs length wise? APCs are sanforized so you are going to get very little shrinkage to begin with, stretching the legs like that is going to upset the way your stacks set. If you just wash them and don't stretch them the stacks usually return to the way they were (for the most part) before the wash, the difference in length should be negligible.
I think you are confused here. The '47 is how the 501 was cut in 1947, they are a reproduction of the 501 from more than 60 years ago. (This cut is popular with Sugar Cane and other brands) The modern Levi 501 has become more "anti-fit" and is thus a bit looser fitting in comparison to the 1947, particularly in the thigh IIRC.
Can someone recommend me a decent pair of darker (raw/indigo) colored jeans for around $50? I don't really wanna spend that much since the only time I really get to dress down out of the house is on the weekends. Also, are there any denim selling sites that accept paypal?
i would suggest saving a little more
I'll give those a shot, thanks. It's not that I don't have more, it's just that I don't want to spend more. I mean, is the quality of premium denim that much better?
by levis?What jean would you recommend that has a fit that is in between Levi's slim straight and skinny?
Would like a few non-raw answers if possible too
