Kiya i was wondering these jeans finally fall under my price range
but i do have APC NS
design wise they dont seem to different, but the properties of the denim are different?
I wanted to know because I've been looking for new denim that fade differently.

I was just curious since the past few pages mentioned how their previous model was supposedly an apc ns version.


These will undoubtedly age far better than a pair of APC's, mainly due to the denim weave construction.
Most of Kaihara's denim tends to have more variation in it than even most other selvedge denim that's sanforized, singed, and calendered.
For the price you really can't go wrong with these, and the fits are easy to work into any outfit so they're not only a great jean to work with if you're looking for fading but they're also a great everyday jean from a fit perspective.

Those straight legs are gorgeous....but why such big back pockets. Hmmm.

Kiya, do you recommend a soak and sizing down at all for those straight legs?

The back pockets are actually normal sized, they're no bigger than the rest of the jeans we carry (with the exception of Imperial/Nudies).

No need for a soak, they're sanforized. Also, they run true to size, don't size down unless you want them super slim.

+1 (No need for a soak). I soaked mine and the shrinkage was negligible.

As for sizing, I sized down two to a 30 but I wouldn't consider them super slim. The thighs were not constricting and are now actually pretty relaxed. The waist has stretched out to 32" after about a month of wear. I'd say that mine fit similar to the fit pics on SE, if not even a little looser. Mine are from the first lot, but the cut should be the same...

***EDIT***: I've been informed that the cut on Lot 002 of the SL denim (the one carried by SE) is slightly different from Lot 001. The measurements for my pair of Lot 001 size 30 are as follows:

Waist 31.5
Thigh (1" below crotch) 11.6
Knee 9
Leg opening 7.75
Front rise 10
Back rise 13
Inseam 34

Looks alright, but the slim fit doesn't look slim from the knee down, at sz.30 you have a leg opening at 7.9, which makes it seem more like a straight slim and then the pictures almost give it a boot cut look, the top block looks good though.

Yeah, I'll be ordering a straight pair this week some time for sure. I'm pretty much a 33" waist and am going with a 32."

I agree with you Tech about the relatively mild taper on the slims. Still, great stuff all around at an affordable price = :thumbup.

Was the original 19cm dior not based after the New Cure? Maybe an APC repro isn't a bad idea...

The leather bracelets are exclusive to Self Edge. Sydney's will be getting the ST's in three colors (the third being a nonselvedge raw grey).

Not completely sure if these exact models will be continued, but we're getting a small restock within the next week or so.

Are the grey exclusive to Sydney's or will Selfedge be getting these as well? Are they dark grey? Those sound interesting.

^The fit doesnt have to be that tight... all you need to do is size up and sag if you want a roomier fit. Here's a picture of someone wearing the ST-210s in his proper size.
