How so? Sydney always models all the jeans perfectly, from the pic I can see that the thigh is roomier than other models. I always check all measurements of a pair, since I know exactly what I want, I usually have perfect fits.

Yeah I was ignorant and based it off the image on self edge

@midnite these are just slightly too baggy on the thigh for my liking, because I'm a really skinny guy

They look pretty baggy all around, think you should go for a different pair tbh.

sigh, I've been trying to get rid of these. It's pretty hard to move them.

I had a deal on plndr so I decided to gamble on a pair of Mishka's raw selvage Alexei's. I think all inseams on Mishka denim is 34? For regular jeans I wear 30 so I was wondering what do I do. Should I get it hemmed? If so, to what length? I also couldn't find any info on whether it's sanforized or not so I can soak them. (I'm an amateur)
Oct 06, 2012 @ 03:54
get it hemmed if you feel that it's too long. I'm pretty sure it's sanforized or it should say un-sanforized if it is. No need to soak. But hem about 1" longer than what you normally wear as most denim will shrink a little bit

Does getting it hemmed effect the quality or look?

I'm looking to pick up a new pair of raws as my Deep Indigos which I've had and loved have started to blow in the crotch and will be ushered into semi-retirement.

Deciding between the Japan Heritage or Indigo/Indigo in SkinnyGuy fits or the Skinny Straight Japan Blue 101 (Momotaro). Price range is about the same, but want something different from the Deep Indigo fade/feel.

Thoughts? Maybe something completely different? A pair of Momotaros perhaps?
Oct 06, 2012 @ 20:28
I would definitely pick momotaros over the other brands.

how would it effect the quality? think about it ! If the pants are straight leg then no, it wont effect the look. If jeans are tapered the hem wont be as small but would still look pretty similar to being unhemed.
Oct 07, 2012 @ 08:54
Does tapering just the inseam part of the jeans make it look weird?
Oct 07, 2012 @ 19:35
What?? So you want the leg opening to be smaller or what?

@midnite
yes i just dont want the selvedge line touched
Oct 07, 2012 @ 20:51
You going to have to taper than from knee down then, which will alter selvedge line.

@midnite
man is it possible to just taper from the inseam doe
Oct 07, 2012 @ 21:27
I don't think you full understand how tapering works, you can't just make the leg opening smaller, in order to taper, they need to cut the line.

who know what pants he wear ? I dont know where wrote it so i write here.

Yeah if it's only between those I would go with momos. If you aren't just limiting yourself to those then check out some
of the other brands for out there in the same price point. What kind of denim you looking for?
Oct 08, 2012 @ 15:56
@justsayray

Yes, tapering from the inseam is possible. I would contact one well known denim repair stores for details (Denim Revival, Denim Doctor, Denim Therapy, Denim Surgeon...etc). I think it'll cost $40+ though.

Tapering from the outseam is MUCH easier, and any local tailor should be able to do it. However, it does, as you mention, "ruin" the selvedge line.
BUT DON'T CRY JUST YET!
Here's a handy DYI solution.

hey guys i'm confused, what's the difference between an ODed denim and a dry denim? do any of them fades faster?
Oct 15, 2012 @ 03:28
is there such thing as Waxed Selvedge Denim?

Assuming OD means overdyed. They're not the same type of descriptions.
"OD" describes the dying amount, while "Dry" describes the wash.

"OD" means that the denim was "overdyed", which intuitively means, it is given a very dark, saturated hue.
"Dry denim" refers to jeans that were dyed and never given that post production wash, hence it's likelihood to fade.

You can have OD regular denim, and OD dry denim (ie. Naked and Famous Deep Indigo, the OD version of Indigo)

Message me if you have any questions.

is there such thing as Waxed Selvedge Denim?


WAXED means that the jeans are given a coat of wax on the final production.
SELVEDGE refers to weaving process in producing making the denim.

So, YES, of course, you can have a pair of jeans made with Selvedge denim, with a wax coat on it.

You guys are using the terms incorrectly.
REMEMBER. SELVEDGE =/= RAW.

Idk if this has been asked before but whats the best way to store your denim. Usually I just fold my Deep Indigo N&F jeans. Is it better to hang em ?
