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?

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.

anyone have any gstar jeans? wondering how they compare as far as quality compared to NF, apc, etc? thank you in advance.


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

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?


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.

Can anyone comment on these jeans? Are they worth it?
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?


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.

what the fuck does that even mean? all denim usually runs 34 or 36 default. if you want some variable shit go for some levis. check these sites and see what's up.

Black power, spend another 50 and get some pure blue japan..I haven't owned any but they maybe my next pair if I can hold off form buying other things.

Kmz- I would say buy different denim just so you can experience different kinds ya know. Unless you really loved APC. I want PBJ next or something skinnier and a little more tapered than Naked & Famous. I own the skinny guy and weird guy, but I haven't tried WG in 27 yet so I might do that before PBJ. Thing is they don't make every WG in 27.

If you want an exotic denim try N&F, if you just want some plain blue jeans APC is a slightly better choice.

by sitting like this or something similar (i like to have my leg up at the computer) would it cause more proneness to crotch tears? only when the denim is fresh? ( so when it softens up its okay? ) ive got a pair of uniqlos that ive worn for 3 years and its only now starting to wither in the crotch area but i always hear people getting crotch tears =S

Try tape. Put a layer of tape on the inside of the denim leg opening to prevent it from bleeding on your shoes.

UndefeatedJK My suggestion is to shrink it first. Cause then they might shrink to how you like it. You don't wanna taper them first then shrink because they might be too skinny afterwards.

Looking for in size 8.5-9 003 Authentics/Chukka PM ME!

Interested in a pair of samurais or pure blue japans, could anyone tell me any substantial difference between the two? I'm looking for a slim tapered fit. Also in terms of quality which one is better?
