To my knowledge black imperials aren't that great.

But Pure Blue Japans black dye ages nicely.

Is there anything different in the washing process I need to keep in mind for white or off-white raw denim? Different detergent brands or anything of that sort? I'm looking to pick up a pair from where ever I can find it and don't really want to screw these up because of how I do the first wash.

I don't think so, the process should be the same.

Actually, Oni's Black fit is slimmer than their Blue fit.


Thanks homie!

It's probably better to hem them before they've settled but as jozsef said, it doesn't matter too much. Remember to take into consideration shrinkage of the denim when hemming. You don't want to hem them and then find out they're too short after your soak/wash! If your pair is sanforized it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

What can I buy that fits like the PS just isnt quite as skinny? The PS is also slightly to short in the inseam for me. I need something around $200 that is not quite as skinny and longer.

Yeah, most tailors can taper your jeans to get the thighs and the calves smaller. If you have selvage jeans, make sure that the tailor tapers on the inseam, not the outseam, if you want to preserve the selvage line.

Contemplating on either getting APC PS or Naked&Famous Deep Indigo Skinny. Care to give me your inputs on those 2? Like which ones a better fit, which ones looks better when faded ect ect

^ Both are great cuts, but it depends what fit you are going for more. The Ps is very tapered, whereas the skinnyguys are a straight skinny jean all the way down. Apc's seem to fade a lot more than the deep indigo's but that really depends on how much wear and tear you put in them. Quality wise, APC's are made in and manufactured in Macau, and n+f is japanese selvedge made in Canada. So take that into consideration as well. I say it really depends on how you want your jeans to fit, and base your opinion off that

If you like the idea just do it. You will probably be new jeans later whether you like how they fade or not so might as well try something.

What is the difference between the 17cm and 19cm Dior Homme denim? Also, if I wear a tagged size 26 in APC PS what pair of Dior's (size as well) would be the closest to the PS? (If not the same, very slightly loser)

17cm and 19cm refer to the leg opening.
