I can only suggest Naked & Famous since they're the only raw denim I've worn. I have the Weird Guy cut and I really like them even tho I could have sized down one. Take a look at their skinny guy cut jeans.

I'd recommend APC and Naked & Famous as brands to check out. Different people have different definitions of what a "skinny" fit is exactly, but for N&F, I would check out the Skinny Guy cut, and for APC, I would check out the New Cure and Petite Standard cuts.

I'm looking for some slim fitting (slim straight or slightly tapered) black coated denim. I know about the Nudie Grim tim and Thin Finn, but I'm wondering if there's some different brands out there. Not really a fan of Nudie.

I have a pair of Naked & Famous Weird Guy's in Indigo Selvedge.
They stretched quite a bit, as well as they had "knee bags" and stretched near the knee area to the point where they looked ridiculous.
I decided to soak them, and now they're basically not stiff at all to the point where it won't retain any honeycombs, whiskers, etc. I soaked them following instructions.. So I don't think I did it wrong..

So I'm wondering how I can avoid kneebags, and how I can make them stiff again..? Was reading about starch, but would like to confirm!

Kneebags are natural everybody that bends their knees in jeans gets them. Yeah if you want them stiff reapply starch, it sounds like that soak rinsed out a good bit of it.

Gap selvedge is pretty sweet, I've seen some crazy faded ones. I hear a lot of people debate between those and unbranded selvedge jeans, and that they're kinda the same quality as uniqlo jeans. But it's up to how you want the cut/fit. I love APC's cuts but I do think they're a little overpriced for the quality but again its just up to you and what you are looking for.

My friends who have APC's love them and I know a few guys who have the Gap selvedge and they rave about them all the time (they especially talk about the price because it goes on sale)

Gap selvage denim is good for the price, but the APCs will be nicer and have better fitting cuts for most people. Personally, I would spend a few more dollars and go with the APCs.

starch.
starch is what makes your jeans stiff and if they aren't stiff anymore makes sense to add some right? haha. be careful tho sometimes it can really stink.. you could try some spray starches like Faultless, Niagra Spray Starch, Dr. Beckmann, and Easy On Double Starch, or you could try and mix some starch and water yourself and spray it on your jeans. spray it on your jeans fully or just the spots you want to reform shape (honeycombs, whiskers, etc) until damp, then wear them for a little so it forms better or just let them hang out. either way, starching is a great way to bring back the rigidness of your jeans

it depends what you want, woolite black is good for preventing indigo loss, but i dont really care and just use anything as long as there isnt bleaching agents and a lot of weird chemicals and stuff.

this may come off as a stupid question
but has anybody ever tried wearing thier jeans in a sauna?

i know that hot water shrinks denim but i am trying to strech out my a.p.c.'s because i sized down way too much and have been wearing them for 6 months and are still tight as fuck.

would i be able to strech my jeans out if i went in the sauna wearing my jeans and did streching excersizes..?
