RRL, and to be honest I've never seen a Nudie wash I liked.

Will ironing my 2 month old APC PS' damage them at all/will I get weird fading? I was thinking ironing might help the "knee boob" area go back to being flat. Thanks!

For pre-distressed denim... which brand's got the better quality Nudies or RRL? Thinking of going to Nudies if I can't find the RRL in my size...

I agree, RRL definitely makes the better-constructed jean of the two brands.

You need to email one of the administrators and ask them to register. They have been getting a lot of spam so they closed registration.


Do you know how to search for an administrator

Just hang them up in the bathroom when you shower, hot soak them, or use a steamer. No need to iron.

I'd imagine that ironing won't affect your fades noticeably at all.

What's got a slimmer fit, a slim bootcut or a slim straight cut? I'm debating on whether or not to purchase this RRL jeans that's tagged 30x34. The waist is measured 32" and the inseam about 35". The waist is good, but I'm 5'7" so I'm going to have to hem at least 3-4" off the inseam. The guy selling it advised me that it wouldn't be a bootcut fit anymore, but a straight fit because I would have hemmed the flare. I think I'm just gonna do that because I want some RRL jeans damnit lol.


The term "slim" is used rather loosely in general when it comes to jeans, and it really depends on the brand and model of the jean in terms of whether a slim boot cut or slim straight cut is slimmer. Unfortunately, as far as RRL goes specifically, I don't know which one is slimmer.

Also, IME, I would disagree with the sales guy you talked to about losing the flare when you hem. Most men's boot cut jeans start flaring out from the knee down, so even if you hem, you'll still get some flare unless you hem all the way up to the knee.

I've always wondered this... What do people use to make "rings" in the pockets of their jeans?

I'm wondering how to change the stacks on my PBJ's...there's sort of a calf flare and the stack just sort of slouch instead of staying upright...they pretty much just look messy. any ideas how to fix this?

You could soak, then when they're somewhat damp, wear them and fix the stacks to your liking

Great. I received my PS today but it seems as though I lost weight. I can button the top button with ease and I can fit my whole hand into my pants (pause).

I wanted them to fit like this...



but instead they fit a little baggier than this...




I bought a 30. Would sizing down one more to a 29 fit like I want it to? I plan on sending them back to context tomorrow.

Thank you in advance for your help!

@djanoano - definitely the 29 would give you a better fit, may be a little tight at first but they should stretch out to a nice fit. Definitely the pair you have right now will be a little bit too big when they stretch.

@TALIBAN - depends what you want man, if you want a nice repair where the denim sits naturally and is repaired really strongly and you think you have a lot more life left in your APC's then the 40 bucks for a good repair is definitely worth it. If you think you're probably going to move onto a new pair soon, or aren't to worried about how well your jeans are patched, then any tailor should work no problem.

If I were you I'd cut 2 inches off. Better to have a little extra than lack it.

yeah man, I'm buying a pair of Sams very very soon. But I feel like I'm gna wear my APCs every now and then. I'll probably go get the $40 repair so I feel safe and I won't have to keep going back to the tailors. I can see myself wearing these for a very long time.

Thanks.

Honest opinions. APC or 3 Sixteen? Petite standards/ST-100x. I'm on my second pair of denim and want to get something of better quality.

In my opinion, you can NEVER go wrong with APCs.

Honestly, I'd say that 3sixteen is way more worth it if you're looking for good quality. 3sixteen is us made with really nice japanese denim, where as apc is manufactured in China, with non japanese selvedge. You can't go wrong with either, but if you want something that is better quality, I'd definitely go with 3sixteen.

I think it will depend in part on how stiff the denim is. If the denim is stiff, you should be able to get honeycombs just fine on 8-10 oz. denim. If not, the honeycombs won't come out as well, but you can still starch the back of the knees to get more contrast on the fades there.

Got my PS’s in after getting them hemmed 2″ from the tailor, and the stacks are uneven. What’s the...


I'd say soak just the bottom and reset the stacks, I've done it before and it works perfectly fine.
