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

by levis?
510 511 then 514

between 511 i would say I don't know how much different it is than 510's

just curious. How many of you wear your jeans around the house?
Jan 14, 2010 @ 13:07
i wear em around the house sometimes, but not for that long. usually before i have to leave or just get back home and am too lazy to change to shorts.

by any brand will be fine, just want a slightly slimmer fit but not skinny tight
wish they had like 512's or something XD

would i need to find a really legit, professional tailor to get a 3" hem and maybe re-taper on my APCs? or could i go to an independent alteration or like the Men's Warehouse tailor?

if anyone could reply with a PM that'd be really dope, i'll probably forget to check back here

Which should i get APC New Cures, Nudie Slim Jims Dry Japan, or Naked and Famous Weird Guys Deep Indigo. Its for a contest so im looking for good fading
Jan 18, 2010 @ 21:56
as far as i know, unless you skate/bike/do some sort of very active sport with your legs in your denim, you won't get awesome fades from Cures within a short period of time(<1 year). i think they're just a good pair of raw denim to have
Jan 19, 2010 @ 00:55
what if you just sit in the cures and walk around a lot?)
Jan 19, 2010 @ 00:56
Well i the contest is one year and i do skate and bike plus other things but thats good to know thanks

out of ur list cures will prolly give u the best fading, but cures is a pretty different fit compared to slim jims and wierd guys, definitely not wierd guys they'll be a pain to get some contrast.

i'd assume you'd start seeing fades at >8 months i guess. get a fuckin hobby

Not with a bang but a whimper
