Usually made -without- the cinch, some models youll find that use it such as lvc,edwin,lee and etc (repro) but now in times most jeans you see won't have the cinch.

it seems to be edwins, but what model are these? I ask because the yoke is in the double arch.

kinda dumb question, but with denim that's say, 1% spandex, how well do creases set in?

last for a long time
But you do see wear and tears in them obviously. As for blowouts I don't recall seeing or reading anything about them in regards to imperials

longevity of jeans is relative to how you wear them, if you skate in them everyday they will last under a year, but if ur just wearing them for the sake of not wlkin around naked they will last u a lot longer

Hey guys I have a pair of Supreme narrow fit denim and I basically want the leg shrunk just a bit. Should I wait out the several months? Do any specific type of soak? It's your call, thanks.

I'm lookin for a pair of new denim as I was saying earlier.. I've got a pair of APC NS (black) that I really like in terms of the fit, but for my next pair I'm basically considering:
1. LVC 1947's - concerned they will fit a bit too baggy
2. APC NS Indigo
3. Nudies - don't know much about their fits and they have so many, but I think the slim jims will be too slim for me; looking for something along the lines of the NS fit
4. Other suggestions? I'm basically looking for something in indigo and similar to the NS fit

Looking to spend 200-300 CDN

1. if you size right and your not way to skinny than you could get a nice fit
2. APC NS can't go wrong with that.
3. Slim Jims and Grim Tims seem to be the most popular fits, but Nudies are notorious for crotch blowouts so if you wear you denim hard or even skate, bike, bmx, stay away unless you want to repair or jeans. They are basically not worth their price.

the PS fit is just NS with a bit more taper and also low rise, right?

oh and forgot to ask: im really used to having my wallet in my back pocket (doesnt feel right if its not there) but i'll always end up with holes in my back pockets from the corners of my wallet and this is one of the main reasons i wanna get a new pair of denim...

anyway to avoid it? like sewing in some fabric, etc? or is my only solution not to put my wallet there...

Sorta depends on how long you wear them without a wash. You can always patch the area up with thicker/scrap denim if it starts looking thin after a couple months. Holes from wallets usually look pretty good imo, unless they start ripping and making the pocket basically useless.

Hey, I bought some APC NS (sized down 2) one month ago, and weirdly, when I stand up, looks like I'm wearing fuckin pointy knee pads when you look at it from the side... (knee boobs? )
Won't adjust, no matter how I try... Is it a common problem? Do you have any tips about fixing that?
It's kinda weird because it's the first time I have this problem with denims, and apart from that, they fit great...

im pretty sure they are sanforized
they will shrink a little in a wash, but theyll stretch back out for the most part.

k so i got my a new pair of denim and am gonna wash my old pair of black NS for the first time (has been 8-9 months of pretty much everyday wear since I got them)...

what are my options in terms of washing them? the black NS are pretty hard to fade and i'm hoping the wash will help them on their way...

cold water/no detergent or bleach/lay flat to dry?

I want to get some APC's and am looking for a similar fit to a size 34 RRL slim fit. I am 6 foot 1, 180, and I'm not sure if I should get NC or NS and how much I should size down. I prefer a slimmer fit, but am wondering if NC would be too slim for my thighs. The last thing I want is to start wearing them in and they are huge on me, so I would like to keep a pretty slim fit thoughout wearing them in. If i buy NS 3 sizes down will the fit be slimmer and the way I want it and I could stretch the waist out to my size?
Any help is appreciated

I just measured my RRL slim fit jeans size 34, and the measurements are about the same as a tagged 32 in New Cure's which is 11.5 thighs, 8 knee, and 7.75 leg opening. I would like the APC's to fit just like those measurements with maybe a little bit of stretching. Would i buy a 32 tagged or a 31? Isnt it recommended to downsize only 2 with New Cures?
Thanks so much for the help.

Then a soak wont do anything, and you don't want to sacrament a wash so I would just wear it and hopefully with the wear you do it slowly disappears.

ok if i got some imps, lets say that i wear them only to cover my legs
no running, sports or sweating in them
and not even everyday wear, maybe stop in the summer and spring
would they possibly last 3-4 years?
