A lot of denim companies have "xx" at the end of their jean model names, what does it mean though?

Sup guys a few quick questions about a pair of ED55 14.5oz raws (ED55 is a relaxed slim fit)

Rain ; 
These jeans are under 1 week of wear, no pre-soak and  no intention to wash for a long time. Whats the general word on getting caught out in the rain? Obviously my shoes will get dyed a bit heavier but will it affect the fading/abrasion etc

Knee stacks ; 
My jeans seem to be gathering around the knees when i go about my daily business, i'm not too fussed but is there any ways to at least reduce this - don't want 2 sets of stacks on my jeans. I may be mistaking this for beginning stages of knee bulges - it's been a while since i've picked up totally fresh raws, used to just pick up no-wash but worn raws to save cash.

On the unbranded UB101s, what is the actual inseam? I'm finding different answers between 34" and 37.5". Thanks

Depends on what you are doing in the rain, most likely nothing will happen immediately. But if rain is consistent, like everyday for a month, then it will affect it. Stacks. Don't worry about it, you shouldn't be getting stacks near your knees unless you sag them like crazy. And you are confused No wash = raw

I have some slim selvage from uniqlo but it doesnt stack the way i wanted it to, the denim just completely goes to the bottom and doesnt have "uniform stacks". Will getting them tapered help?
Stacks is about length, not how tight they are around like legs, unless they are skin tight around them, ffs. How tall are you and what length are the jeans?

how does one avoid knee bulges? they fit fine for about a week's wear and start to loosen around the knee. always fine after a wash, then it happens again. should i start buying a different cut?
A looser fit would avoid knee bulge from my knowledge. It also might depend on the denim.

is it better to let you denim dry inside or outside after first wash and do the weather matter as long as its not raining/snowing?
When it comes to drying it don't really matter, but washing I've noticed in my experience it does

Hi!
Online shopping is very easy and more convenient. I feel good when i get good discounts on buying along with free shipping. I want to purchase Branded Floaters with good discount. I found many sites like http://www.couponcodebazaar.com/ , coupondekho.com, couponrani.com and lots more but I am confused which site is better. Please tell me and email me ASAP

does anyone know how the japanese selvedge jeans are from gap? After all of the promotions they came down to $13 so I had to buy a pair.
Mar 18, 2014 @ 08:30
^slow af to break in. Don't fade and shit quickly from what I found out and seen, even though I had the straight leg for about 2 months. Decent pair of denim for fking $10 though.

Are all naked and famous non-selvedge denim unsanforized or sanforized? I have a pair of raw weird guy soft stretch(non selvedge)..waist is kinda big. Trying to figure out the next step to shrink them a bit bc the fit is great but requires a belt. 


Also emailed N&F about this. Idk how helpful they are but hopefully they can assist me.

I bought 2 blvck scvle denims on this forum 5 years ago. I didn't wear them. Do you guys think anyone would still be interested in buying them back? They're both size 30. One is the waxed and the other is grey. They're in perfect condition.

how to settle my stacks nicely? My apc pns 's stacks just seem to look so untidy lol 
Apr 02, 2014 @ 14:52
Would using a nail brush during a 1st wash help with improving contrast in fades? Since you could pretty much wear away any areas you particularly wanted to see washed out.... Don't know if this is a stoned idea or something worth pursuing

Apr 04, 2014 @ 03:51
how do you guys get your stacks to form nicely? when I do it, basically I put the jeans on, put a pair of shoes on, and then undo the pants and push them down to my ankles like I was gonna take them off, but keep the shoes on, and then just try and form the stacks yourself with your hands, making them as even as possible, and then once you have them how you want just sit like that for a while. Do it for a couple days and you should get some pretty nice stacks.
