Still undecided on cuffing and removing the stitched tags.

Absolutely remove the stitched tags man.
But other than that, those look pretty interesting. I didn't even realize they actually had two different inseams, that's nuts! Are the denims supposed to fade differently?

you have a very nice pair of denim &)
the picture when they are laid down flat, the pant legs are different shades of indigo, or thats what i see
those are very nice !

Just a quick update...

The fits quite nice. A nice straight leg. But I've sagged them so not really what I'm supposed to do.

I removed the tags, as I had them tucked into the pockets, but they would just end up getting damaged and falling so they are gone.

And quickly about the two kinds of denim, the Lee side seem darker, hairier and rub off on my hands easily, the Levis side seem lighter, show more weft and a slightly heavier.

Choosing not too cuff, as I want the hems to rope. But the leg-twist is amazing, one they are both twisting inwards, its crazy.

Good call on the stitched tags, that's a no brainer for me. They just look out of place and atrocious.

But you actually want leg twist?
Apr 03, 2008 @ 23:50
the pbj's he has are trying to replicate lee's and levis, and they are both known for their leg twist, and its a repro thing. i wouldnt mind it

I'm lookin to get skulls 5010 black selvedge


i wear 30 in nudie sjdj
and like 31 in regular levis 514
what size should i go for?
tight is nice but not TOO tight
Apr 04, 2008 @ 17:23
Go with your slim jim size or up 1, if you sized down on your jim's.


Apr 06, 2008 @ 22:56
Im looking for some new denim, Im currently wearing a 31 Nudie thin finn and really like the fit. Ive had my eye on skull 5010xxx 6x6, new Flathead x SE denim and am really looking for something higher quality then the nudies but a similar fit to a thin finn. Any recommendations would be great...
Apr 07, 2008 @ 14:36
Ok so you dont recommend the skulls 5010 6x6? they seem quite popular and are even more attractive due to the 15% off this week at SE. How are the samurai's or flatheads better? The SExFHs are amazing but are a lil on the steep side, may still get them though.
Apr 08, 2008 @ 08:10
those sda's are dope! good thing you removed the tags,tho, b3ans!

hows wesc raw selvage fit compared to 514 levis? size up or down?


Apr 13, 2008 @ 02:34
I own a pair of slim jims (31x34) and was wondering if the thigh area is similar to a pair of new standards? I'd like a bit more room for the thighs..
Apr 13, 2008 @ 03:01
how do flathead 3001 fit compared to slim jims?
Apr 13, 2008 @ 03:16
lol^cool cool i want a slimer fit
Apr 13, 2008 @ 08:16
Yeah, FH3001 sizing rule "size up one"
Apr 14, 2008 @ 00:41
so i bought two pairs of jeans that are quite a bit baggier than i'd like (nudie regular ralf and oni red), so i was going to soak them in warm/hot water for a couple hours, then dry them...for maximum shrinkage, can i dry them in the dryer or will it not matter how i dry them?

and if i soaked them, then wore them for an extended period, will i still get the honeycombs and stacks after washing?

how do slim jim nudies fit compared to levis 514? size down?

and how do apc new standards compare to levis 514? how about the rescue?


Apr 17, 2008 @ 12:55
Slim Jims are a bit slimmer than 514s all around, and they have more of a taper. (Do 514s even taper much at all? They seem quite straight legged.)
Size down one from your Levis size.
New Standards fit differently depending on how much you size down. I'd say they fit similar to 514s in the fullness of the cut, though they're overall a much more flattering fit. Rescues are very straight legged and are baggier than 514s. Hope that helps.

so no need to size down on apcs?


Apr 19, 2008 @ 05:25
I thought it was size two down cause the waist stretches like crazy. But then again I don't know much about APCs, can anyone confirm for me?

Sizing up/down isn't like a rule, it depends on how you want it to fit.
