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?


Its alot better.. levis are great for the price tho.

Trying to decide between the unbranded denim & NF denim.

Can anyone recommend a good pair of skinny jeans in Black? dont have to be raw or premium cotton but dont want them to be too shitty either. Preferably under 200 bucks

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

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

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

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.

how does the effect of an ocean wash
differ from a reg tub soak
(does salt, and whale sperm have a dramatic different effect)

Not with a bang but a whimper
