i'm not new to raw denim, but i have some questions nonetheless.

i'm have 140-200 to spend on a good pair of denim (my first..). my definition of good is something like APC; not great, but close. Sorry if APC's and Nudies are like apples and oranges. It's just that these are the two brands that i'm going between.

i want a slim fit: something like APC's NS ($140) or Nudie Slim Jims (165 at www.tobi.com/product/1543-nudie-jeans-slim-jim-skinny-jeans-in-dry-black-stretch-denim-skinny-tapered).

i would prefer selvedge (yea, i know jims aren't), but it doesn't matter much as Nudie selvedge gets into 260+, money that i would get better jeans for.


can someone help me justify the price of Nudies? some people think Nudies aren't worth the price, and same for APC. in other words, i'm asking for a comparison of APC's to Nudies. (coulda just said it huh)

i'm going to be wearing this pair for pretty close to everyday for the next ew months. so yea. gotta make this worth it.

if you know of any other 'quality' brands for $140-200 please let me know.

thanks, and sorry for the long post.

Wrong. APCs and Nudies are very different denim. Nudies are more made to fade, and (especially with Slim Jims) more likely to blow out after awhile. But, if you're looking for crazy fades, they'll come easier. APCs aren't super thick (13.5 I think? ) but are much less likely to blow out. Personally, I think APC makes better denim, but its a matter of preference. Different beasts.

APC allllllllllllllllllll day, son. Since my APC NC's came in around mid-December, I've found it hard to take them off...I was fuckin with other more affordable denim like H&M, Gap, Cheap Monday, but once I started wearing the APC and watching them break into form and start setting up for stacking, and the rough starched denim, and the color of the indigo when you first get them, and just, err'thang about the joints. I'm straight up beatin my New Cures 'til mid-Summer, when I'll give them a cold soak and sun dry.

I've seen n*ggas with Nudies Slim Jims and blah blah @ UIC, and I never notice them 'til they tell me what brand they are. But hella people give me compliments on the APCs.

And for $140, you really arent going wrong. It's a sound investment bro

thanks for the heads up.
but i'm pretty convinced now that APC's are the jeans i've been looking for. that coupon code does lower some shipped Nudie Slim Jims to under the amount that i'd have to pay for some APC's though.

man, don't know why i didn't cop some APC's when they were $130 like what, 2 years ago?

anyone know any sites besides apc.fr, context, tobi, blackbird that have any NS's in stock? i really don't want to deal with $155 + shipping and tax from APC.fr...
