APCs are not chainstitched yet selvage. They fade relatively well.
Nudies are chainstitched but not selvage (with the exception of a few models). They fade ok; i haven't seen a pair that's been well faded in awhile.

If you decide to get Nudies, possibly look into Grim Tims or Slim Jims. Size true to waist or down 1" at most. HEAH!!

sorry if this isn't necessarily a denim question, but anyone know how to size bdu's so that they don't look OD baggy? for example, parachute pants? i want a plain straight fit like normal chinos. ive looked at the propper site and im looking at the XS which fits waist 23-27 and small which fits 27-31. im around 28-29 in. trying to avoid that hip flare that comes with adjustable waists, i know they fit baggy and was wondering if it would be a smart idea to size down to the XS.

f310s or 1001s? they're not tapered, but fit slimmer.

How much do the Samurai S710 shrink in the thigh post-soak (i assume about .5 inches) and how much will they stretch after several wears?

Theres no really point to it, just another way to wash your jeans in a unique way.

Go to the beach with them worn, jump in the water, go back out rub sand on your jeans everywhere, then go back into the water to rinse it off and hang dry.
your jeans might smell a little weird though due to the natural chemicals of the sea

I got 2 pairs of jeans tapered and I'm looking for opinions on the fit. I was considering getting them hemmed, or just buying a new pair of jeans. Thoughts?

Try to find 36 but a 34 should be fine, considering it shrinks about 2-3inches in the inseam (length)

If the denim drags and your getting rips easily then you should hem, if it doesn't effect you or the fit your ok.

I'm in need of some guidance.

I'm a little confused on which pair of APC's to get, considering I want a skinny/tight fit.
I'm about 5'8-9" & about 135 lbs. My waist is about 30-31.
Should I get New Cures or Petite Standards? And how much should I size down?

Thanks for your help anyone.
