I came home today to find my new jeans had arrived. Upon their arrival, I was super excited. They're the Straight Legs. The only other raw denim I have had has been Uniqlo S-002's (current), APC Rescues (years back) and APC NS (for less than two weeks, bought too tight).

After opening these and inspecting them, they are fantastic. The amount of detail that the folks at 3Sixteen put into them definitely shows. From the gunmetal rivets to the super-thick Tanner Goods leather patch (I love it!), these are pure money (....and they don't even know it - haha).

My waist is in between a 33-34, closer to a 33 and I ordered a 32. My thighs are pretty big from lifting weights but I find the fit to be spot-on. While they are a little tight in the waist and thighs, I know they will stretch up to an inch and a half and am not worried about being able to sag (ya gotsta do it).

I will try and take pictures at the end of the week so you guys can get an idea but take my word for it, these are great. The denim is heavy, stiff and the quality is exceptional. The pocket size is great and they definitely have got their signature model at great sizing and pricing points. All in all, this is a great pair of denim. It's my first piece from 3Sixteen and I now am sold. I've always liked their designs, approach and quality of work put in but now that I see first-hand, I will continue to check for new releases, etc.

Also, Self Edge - easy ordering experience, thumbs up.

Quick pic of the straight-legs from last night before I went out. It's killing me not being able to sag but soon enough, I suppose.

Garrett - don't size down two on them. At most you might want to size down one, but they are not going to stretch as much as other denim. Check Selfedge.com and compare measurements to a pair that fit you well... We are finding that most people should go true to size.

FS - will have info for you soon.

I just think they're not slim enough from the knee-down.....I know, they're straight-fits.

^ You ever try cutting, Logikal?

I've decided not to purchase any pants/denim until I drop my BF down to about 9-10% (currently, 17%).

I have the same dilemma: thunder thighs. I just don't wanna end up like Ryan (no hate).

Eh, I've cut plenty. I'm 5'10 1/2 (lol), 170 with 10-11% BF.

If anything, I want to bulk. My shirt gives the impression I'm bigger I think.

Thinking on selling...

I think the major problem I have is just the thunder thighs.

They make finding denim really hard, and straight fits are all we have going for us.

I want that slim-down-the-knee look.

Same here. Deadlifts and squats every other day doesn't help with having small thighs but I'm happy not being a twig. I agree, I'd like the slim-knee-down look. Looking at 19cm Dior's but I think they'll be too slim. Might go try some tomorrow if the Saks near by carries them.

/agree
too skinny isn't a good look, doesn't seem healthy

what works best for me is finding a pair that fits above well, then if its too billowy downstairs, going to a tailor can fix it up real quick

still contemplating whether or not I'm going to buy these...the measurements are looking real fine..

they seem worth the price
usually around 180 you can only get nudies apc and levis
at least there is something new in the market which makes it worth trying.

can i compare the st- 210 with apc ncs? from the tightness? i can wear 29 in ps and 30-31 in nc. true waist: 32. what should i wear in st- 210? do the tights stretch as much as apcs? because my apc ps 29 stretched from a 10.25 tights to 11.25 which fits great.

I decided I'm keeping these. I didn't receive many offers and am just going to ride it out and save for something else. I'm going to have them altered at a tailor from the knee-down if they don't settle better down the road.

They are definitely comparable to APC NC's. If your true waist is a 32 then I would go with the 31 which has an actual waist of 32.5 - they'll stretch a little bit but nowhere near as much as your APC's did.
