Samurai, N&F, or APC

Which is the best bang for your buck.. Someone was telling me Samurai is way better quality, but i was thinking you could get the same thing in APC or N&F

definitely Samurai.

Samurai is far superior quality. The only thing that would come close is if you got one of N&F's collabs, like the Oni Denim or Momotaros. But still, I might say Samurai's are better than even those. Regular N&F's are actually kinda bad quality, and APC's are ok but Samurai trumps them both for sure.

Btw, why the double-post? ;)

Absolutely NO comparison if you do research. Samurais build and quality is immensely superior to APC and N&F. But not really the best bang for the buck lol.

Agreed. Samurai's are a little overpriced for sure, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a better quality denim.

Bang for you buck..N&F

best quality..Samurai>NF> APC

Never had Sams, but they look incredible!! For NF I have deep indigo and elephant 2 which are both pretty nice material. Deep Indigo construction is pretty good..nothing I can complain about. E2's construction is...eehh. Just received my first pair of APC's two days ago and they don't seem that bad. Think they'd be a great summer jean.

But if you're just trying to get the best bang for you buck I'd say NF. If you've got money and want quality and really nice looking denim then I'd say get the Samurai's.

Wranglers, the ones at Macy's for $20, BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK. They last years.

samurai's are way better quality, but you need to determine if they are worth it to you. some dudes can afford it without hurting their wallet. since you're asking this question, just get some n&f's or 3sixteens and determine if you want something better. not everyone needs the best jeans in the world

samurai, check out PBJ as well.

APC rose their price like a mf and imo their material seems like it decreased in quality.
Naked and Famous always doing stupid shit like glow in the dark denim.

Go with a company that is legit and stays legit.

Get a pair of Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. They had selvedge denim online if that's what you want. Their jeans are quality .

^ are u being forreals?
Mar 16, 2012 @ 07:58
Why not? I still got a few pairs from couple yrs ago. Don't wear em much, but they do have nice jeans. Can be had any where from $29.90 - $50 on the cheap side unless you wanna pay full price at around $120

Bro, haters gonna hate. Just let them.
Mar 17, 2012 @ 01:50
dawg don't listen to these internet pplz

APC's are great cut etc and bang for your buck the easy winner

unless you're in need of heavy selvedge bullshit then go with sammies but it's not remotely practical

Tell me this fit


doesn't look good.
Mar 24, 2012 @ 19:39
I think that fit looks good. Thing is their skinnies aren't that tight on me. Their super skinny jeans pretty much fit like that on me but a tad tighter.

people going to hate on A&F because of the name. Their denim has to be like 14-15oz and are just as durable as any other brand on this site.
