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?
'47?

Why 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.

I am looking into these Stussy x Levis. It seems they are based off the 1967 505 LVC edition. My gripe is that it says 12oz on that link when the LVC edition are 14.5oz kaihara and preshrunk. Can I assume pretty much that the stussylevis aren't using the same as LVC and that wear characteristics won't be the same? Also these are 33.5raw, is that enough to say that they are STF?

Hey guys. So this may be a stupid question and if it is it's because I don't know much about denim besides a little about levi's and apc. but lately my jeans aren't cuttin it. I usually rock 511s, but lateley ive been wearing some raw indigo 510s, and after about 2 months of 4 day a week wear, they turn to shit. paper thin and floppy. plus i think 510 is too skinny now.tongueface so i was wondering what i should get for something higher quality(for not a ton more money). what's the best jean i can get that fits pretty similar to a 511, and no more than $100 or so? really appreciate some ideas.

ps. i know most of you on here hate on them, but i was at nordstrom rack and tried on some skinny true religion jeans that were only about $110. has anyone bought true religion? do they last at all? thanks.

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'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?
Jan 13, 2010 @ 12:49
yes
yes it is.
