My pair was supposed to arrive today...unfortunately, I'm out of town. Hopefully fit pics Sunday or Monday, depending on when I get back.

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.

these are sexy

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.

May 11, 2009 @ 17:25

May 11, 2009 @ 22:46

May 11, 2009 @ 22:56
damn those leather patches are sexy as fuck
May 12, 2009 @ 22:32
still no details on the type of denim used for the greys...
May 12, 2009 @ 22:58
I like the straight ones, would I size two down on these?
May 13, 2009 @ 08:20
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.

May 15, 2009 @ 14:30
i love my pair...
May 22, 2009 @ 15:41
Straight-Legs.....can't decide whether or not I'm keeping. 1 wear - sized down 1.

May 22, 2009 @ 17:51
depends on what your going for
but i like, not too slim nor baggy
May 22, 2009 @ 18:24
looks good hopefully ill make up my mind on denim soon and get these.
May 22, 2009 @ 21:40
I just think they're not slim enough from the knee-down.....I know, they're straight-fits.
May 22, 2009 @ 21:44
^ 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).
May 22, 2009 @ 22:01
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...
May 22, 2009 @ 22:06
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.
May 22, 2009 @ 22:16
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.

I like the straight ones. they're like straight-fits.

/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..
May 25, 2009 @ 16:07
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.
May 25, 2009 @ 16:21
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.
