You'll increase your chances of blowing out the crotch if you sag, it puts more strain on that area of the jeans.

Anyone know anything about these?

PRPS Heirloom Raw Wash Selvedge Barracuda cut jeans. These are made in the USA.











The buyer said they are labeled as raw, but are really rigid? Said they are vanity sized like crazy. Anyone have them or know anything? What's the fit like and quality like? I need a new pair of raw/slev jeans.

I got my Levi 514's for Christmas and have been wearing them on and off since then. Now, I'll be wearing them pretty much every day. Except I got them in the 34x30 size, and I think I'm more of a 33x29. I don't want them scraping the ground when I wear my Vans authentics, so can I still hot soak them or is it too late for that?


Unless your 514s are shrink-to-fit, hot soaking won't make much of a difference in their length. You best bet would be to cuff or hem, though cuffing on slimmer jeans doesn't really look good IMO, and you might not have enough material to hem with if you are only trying to shorten the inseam by 1". Maybe just wear different shoes with this pair of jeans?

Both are excellent, but the denim is really different between the two. Momotaro denim is smooth and tightly woven, and it's a little bit heavier between the two brands. PBJ denim is slubby and more loosely woven. You can't really go wrong with either brand, but it will depend on your denim preferences.

so Ive had my N&F denim for like a month now, and I was wondering if there is a way to re-stack my denim for a couple reasons:
1) the left leg stacking is sad
2) i made my cuffs a tad too big
3) my right leg stacks are meh

so if there is a way to get rid of the creases that have formed and start over that would be cool to know, if not just say so and dont flame me please..

Not sure if this is the correct way, but try ironing them down.

Iron it. And if you have, spray some starch on and then iron.

However, if you've worn it for a month.. then it may have some slight fade and if you try adjusting it, might end up ruining your stacks in the long run.

Sea soaking jeans prevent loss of indigo due to the salt in the water.

The main reason for soaking jeans, at least with unsanforized (shrink-to-fit denim), is to get the shrinkage out with as little indigo loss as possible.

Like bzgz said, sea soaking is a way of doing it to maximize indigo retention, as the sea salt supposedly helps the non-excess indigo adhere to the denim better.

Most people just leave their stacks alone, they tend to settle down over time with more wear.

they're supposed to be stiff at first. you're supposed to break them in, that's my favorite part..

Most rigid denim is raw, so typically, yes it does.

Soaking is optional with Unbrandeds, but if you are going to do it, I would do it in hot water for at least a half hour. From my experience, it doesn't seem to make a difference whether they are inside out or not.

What are the benefits of having heavier denim? like 18oz-26oz, is it just for higher contrasting fades and and extra stiffness? i heard they break down a bit faster too

Just for the experience. Some people say they're warmer but that's more due to the weave tension than thicker yarns since it's all still real breathable cotton. It does feel a little different the heavier you go though. Higher contrast is more reliant on the dyeing method and cotton used. Same with wear expectancy.

I think it is mainly for a different feel. Heavier denim does not necessarily fade with more contrast, nor is it necessarily stiffer than lighter denim. From my experience with heavier denim, it does tend to keep you warm better than lighter denim in cold weather, and the denim itself does tend to be more durable than lighter denim. That says nothing about the stitching, of course.

i've had my apc's for almost one year (11 1/2 months so far) and i plan on making them touch water. My question is, what did you guys first do? a wash or a soak? If wash, what kind of wash? hot/cold? w/ detergent, w/o? If soak, cold/hot and how long? Again, these are almost 1 year APC NS's. pre and post pictures of person experiences would be nice.

If you've been wearing them for almost a full year, your jeans are probably pretty dirty, and you've probably got some good contrast fades ready to go. I would recommend a hot wash with either Woolite Dark or some sort of organic detergent like Dr. Bronner's to bring out the contrast in your fades the best.

How long do Levi 501 STF's usually last before their fade kind of makes them un-wearable? I'm comparing them to APC's... I'm tight on budget but if APC's are DEFINITELY worth it, I may go for it if the Levi's will just go 'broke' in a couple months or so.


levi's 501's will last you a while, some people on the nudie's forums wore them for a year in a contest, check it out if you can, kinda makes m want to get some 501's after seeing their fades
