Iron them out then lean back every time you sit down, and don't sag your pants.

Ok, so I'm searching for some new jeans. I've had my apc ns for about 2 years, and I've gained about 20lbs since I enlisted. Feels good man. I've been wanting something a lil bit more loose, something along the lines of 511s. Butttt obviously cool guy raw denim.
Or could I just get ns again and just size down one instead of 3? I'm down for another brand too. As along as its under 250... Thanks.

NS is always good. Sizing down 2 is enough on those. Instead of not sizing down on NS, maybe you want some APC rescues.

what levis? im thinkin 510? but they look too skinny

Xpost from NF Denim thread.

Just bought a pair of WG and love em. then fit snug so im hoping theyll stretch a bit with wear, and at that point, theyll be be perfect.

but anyways…the indigo is already starting to rub off on my white shirt, hands, etc. i dont mind it much but im worried about my shoes. is there anything i can do specifically just to the leg opening to help? i dont wanna put tape inside it or anything. i hot soaked a pair of levis just at the leg opening one time, and the part that was in water changed color, so i dont wanna do that again. any suggestions?

Fuck. What kind of denim would you recommend that is better than APCs that go down to a 25 waist?

Stacks, particularly chino's:

Is there a particular way one would store it when not wearing to obtain stacks? or is it all simply height?
Dec 09, 2011 @ 06:06
itll happen with wear. and yeah, assuming the inseam is 34, theyll stack more than a 30 in inseam. and itll depend on your height as well.

You guys probably get this question all the time, but I'm 180 lbs and 5'9-- pretty bulky, not so much fat. Want to get a pair of nudies, and I usually wear slim jeans so I'm about a 32-32 in 514 levis...any idea which fit I should get and if I should adjust the measurements? I sort of think I can fit into slim jims, but my thighs are sort of big (because I fence), any suggestions? blushing

anyone have any gstar jeans? wondering how they compare as far as quality compared to NF, apc, etc? thank you in advance.
Dec 17, 2011 @ 05:40
i have some 3sixteens going my way and they need to be hemmed, so i have a few questions

1. should i go to a real tailor or would the laundry place that does alterations fine? the closest tailor that i know right now is at LA which is denim doctor, thats like an hour drive
2. what do i ask the tailor? my friend said chainstitch them, clueless to what that is
3. whats the average price for a hem?

They're pretty generic fashion denims. Washes are usually sub-par and the cotton quality leaves much to be desired.

1. Depends on what specifically you want and #2
2. Tell him to hem them, a chainstitch is just a vintage element like hidden rivets and a selvedge trim coin pocket, only necessary if you're a stickler for tiny details.
3. You can do it yourself with a $3 sewing kit but a simple alteration like that should be no more than $10.

They're Big John Rigid Selvedge Jeans - Blue (There's probably a wash name for them but barney's is usually missing key details.)
http://www.barneys.com/Rigid-Selvedge-Jeans/501373506,default,pd.html?cgid=DENIM04-1

"Rigid selvedge 5-pocket straight leg jean. 9" rise. 34" inseam. 16" leg opening. Available in Blue. 15.5 oz. denim. Cotton. Machine wash warm. Imported. "

How would I size?

Are the Skull 5010's still ass? Because I heard they changed something about the denim that made them shitty. Shopping around for new jeans and trying to figure out what I want. Thanks. Also, what model PBJ would fit most like Samurai 710's?
Dec 26, 2011 @ 03:03
quick question... just got some N&F broken twill as a christmas present and should i pre soak first and then hem and taper? or get them altered then do a presoak?

"leather jackets and bape shark hoodies, its a struggle but we make it work"

Dec 26, 2011 @ 06:17
nah don't pre soak you don't need to, what cut did you get? IMO, if they need to get tapered right off the bat you should have gotten a different cut, i understand its a christmas present doe
if you want to alter em i'm not sure how it goes either you soak to get the shrinkage out then hem or hem and then soak
presoakin it gets rid of that initial starch and it'll be harder to form creases afterwards

yo how do RRL slim fits size TTS?
Dec 29, 2011 @ 02:22
Size down 1 for slim, 2 for skinny
Dec 30, 2011 @ 22:05
is the amount of stretching dependent on how much you size down by? example would be if i went true to size on a pair of jeans, would they stretch less, than if i size down 1 or 2? or is it gonna stretch the same amount no matter what?
Dec 30, 2011 @ 22:14
Amount of stretching depends on the denim itself mainly, different types of jeans/denim material stretch differently, but might stretch a wee bit more if say you have jeans that are really tight on you, and thus you put more stress into the denim.

I have a pair of G-Star jeans. I would say that the quality is lower than N&F or APC.

I don't know what Skull has been doing lately, but the last pair of jeans I bought from them about a year ago did have a drop-off in denim quality compared to other Skull jeans I have owned in the past.

For PBJ, I would say that the XX-011 or XX-013 fits the most like the Samurai 710, but for these models, the PBJ is a little more tapered and lower rise than the Samurai.

I bought those, and I would say that they are a very good deal at the sale price, but I don't think I'd want to pay any more for them than that. As you can see from the pics, they are higher-waisted straight leg, not a slim fit. I sized down 2 from my actual waist measurement on them.

3sixteens or baldwins?

in terms of quality
