Is there a good Canadian/American website to order Cheap Mondays from. I don't want to pay rape shipping.


I'm looking at you Caliroots.com; Shipping costs damn near the same as the jeans.


Urban Outfitters carries them.

levis originally cut the back rise on their jeans straight, which made the ass loose. most modern jeans put some curve in it to hug your ass.

I just ran 'Edwin' in the Search function for this thread, and only one post came up, I was just checking to see how good their jeans are. On one website I read that they can 'dry bleed', which has put me off a bit.
Any help or photo's appreciated.

Urban Outfitters? The fuck?? I hate that store; it's street/art culture for people who don't want to do the the leg work to find anything new or creative. I make it a goal of mine not to buy clothes from the Mall/big box stores.

I noticed they carry Wesc and Cheap Mondays. I like both companies a lot, their jeans are great; but i mean....it's a mall store, lame. What is creative about shopping at the mall?

Blue in Green has them.


No they don't that's why I said besides them in my first post.

Oct 23, 2007 @ 20:53
Just wear them or soak them depending on the jeans.

I haven't tried them in yet, you know that anxious feeling of getting something new.

I hardly soak my jeans. I dont' mind the bleeding, just want a nice fade.

I was referring to whether they were unsanforized, where a soak is required. If not just wear them.

What is waxed denim?
I think I have a pair of raw waxed denim, they have that sort of waxed shine. Just not heavily waxed or anything.

Quick Question:

I've had a pair of A.P.C rescues that I like but the way i wear my jeans changed a big and their a tad too baggy for me now. Then I went back to levi 511's and I forgot how much I'd rather have the comfort of the thin jeans over the heavy selvedged now. Therefore I was thinking about going with the Nudie even stevens.. I know people say these are just average denim at best but I also heard nudies denim(non selvedged pairs) are pretty thin and Thats what I'm kind of looking for now.
So if i wear a 32 in levi 511
29 is APC rescues
...what size to get in nudie Even stevens? I was thinking 30? I don't want them tight but more of a relaxed fit. not baggy though.
Think Nudie ES's will be good for what I'm going for here? any help or comments are appreciated.

most dark colored jeans will dry bleed. raw denim even more so. edwins are mid-level. a little better than levis but not near the top tier of denim.

You asked. I gave you an answer.

Since when has shopping been a creative endeavor? For me its just a process of acquisition. They have something I want, I have money, we make an exchange. I don't give a shit if its from a "mall/big box" store, a designer boutique, or some ma n' pa hole in the wall...what difference does it make? You're still getting what you want.

Granted, UO peddles alot of trendy filth, but I've had a couple good buys from them. If you're still too cool for UO go here http://www.tobi.com/ not sure if its a "mall/big box" store but they got a better selection anyway...

ironically not giving a shit about ur jeans will give you a nice fade.

I appreciate your input, the pair I was looking at was these,



I liked the idea of the relaxed fit on the thighs, but with the tapered leg for the sneakers. Does anyone know any other brands carrying this fit?
Oct 26, 2007 @ 08:42
the evisu heritage wranglers that i have have that fit... amazing beautiful jeans.

retail is about 275 tho... more than the edwins.

Indeed, the pair above I can get for 170.
I appreciate the response.

HEy this might be a dumb as shit question but when you warm wash is it better to wear them into the tub or put the jeans in solo?

I don't speak from experience, but from what I've read it's ok to put them in alone, but you should put them on after taking them out so that they don't shrink up so much that you can't even fit in them anymore.
