It's all about him; he may like it !
But i'd answer you : yes, he should change, & not only the jeans but the whole fit

Thanks for your answer "i'm broke"; but i knew about commonwealth...
I've just received an email from the newton store: they told me they will receive new denims soon.

Should I get the Lemar & Dauley Raw Dogs?

Or do any of you guys know how they fit?

you do not need to change the water when u are soaking ur denim. just let them soak for however long you want. people usually soak them in the showering tub and put shampoo bottles and stuff so the denim does not float up.

I picked up some starch, tried it and when i sprayed it on my combs, and felt it and it felt more like it was becoming soft then rigid. The type of starch I'm using is Magic Premium Starch, any ideas or thoughts? Thanks.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before but

How much is the cost for tailoring? (on an average)
My new jeans are kind of baggy, and i havent washed them yet, wondering if i should get them tailored (either cut it a little shorter or make them narrower)

Thanks.

i finally have the money to spend on some higher end denim, but i'm not sure what to get. i want a fit similar to diors but i'm not sure if i want to spend that type of money either. i'm 5'8-5'9, about 150 lbs. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

the obvious choice would be some apc. depending on how tight you want them either the new standards or the new cure. the new cure being the skinnier. thats probably the closest your getting to diors with out dropping 4 bills.

Odd question: how many soaks/washes until dry denim starts to lose it's stiffness? Basically, when does it start to turn loose and crappy like pre-washed?
