i actually just copped some rescues.

they were real stiff when i tried them on.. and even for 4 hours or so when i rocked them. but when i took them off and put them on in a day or so, they were loose and they had gotten so fucking big.

i'm a 32, and i copped a 29 and it's stretched to what seems like a little bigger than 32.

i'm interested in copping some cures. are they too tight like the new cures?

so is the only way to make this jean not so stiff anymore..is by wearing them?


Yeah or you could just soak them, but the "stiffness" is what allows the formation of honeycombs and whiskers. meow.

Regular cuts = baggy and shapeless. You just re-affirmed my statement, while confusing yourself into thinking that you provided a rebuttal.


regular cuts are not baggy and shapeless... and ive never had a pair of 501 fit me baggy. maybe if you bought the proper sizer they would fit like they were ment to.

I'm getting them tapered as well hopefully this weekend. I'll post the results after I get em done. I want them to fit more like a pair of Nudie Even Stevens, but I like the thigh more in the NS so I guess a trip to the tailor will do the job.
Jul 27, 2007 @ 20:07
i might get my rescues tapered.. i just want my leg a little bit shorter.

i don't know too much about tapering. where could i get that done?

Any reputable tailor should be fine, as you are just altering the opening a bit. I think they can open up the inseam to taper it which leaves the selvedge untouched.

My new standards i got in size 31...my waist is a 33 and my hips are a 34 where i wear my denim...After a month of wear they measured 36 and got too big. So basically since they start at a 32 they stretched a good 4 inches which is rediculous. I'm either ganna buy another pair in size 30 even though i can proba fit in 29 or go see what they have at dior cause i like the fit of those how you can sag them like the NS's and you don't look like you have a bubble butt.

My damn apc ns pockets are so small! Can't fit shit in them.

Such antagonistic words from the new mod. Not everyone is shaped like Alley McBeal, you hipster. A proper size in domestic 501s, do not constitute hip-hugging fits. Nor do non-local 501s like LVCs and others from Japan and other overseas countries. Otherwise, Levi's would have never introduced 511s and other recent additions to their line up. In addition, there would be no need for other brands to develop such marketing thrusts towards slimmer, and more tapered jeans if Levi's 501 truly offered what most people like you are looking for.

Put that in your sig. and eat it.
Jul 28, 2007 @ 09:34
he never mentioned that 501s have a skinny fit....501s are a relaxed fit meaning..not so tight..not so baggy

i don't see this being baggy or even tight
Jul 30, 2007 @ 01:02
wait, so when i take my rescues to the cleaners, should i ask them to
hem it or taper it??
Jul 30, 2007 @ 06:18
it's up to how they fit...
if u want the pants shorter in length you HEM it
if you want it to be skinnier at the bottom than you TAPER it

Hello.

I wear 33 x 32 in CHEAP MONDAY and they've stretched out (love the cutting). I am looking at the sites and I can't really tell what the real difference is between the NEW CURE , or NEW STANDARD ??

I want somethin similar to CHEAP MONDAY and a slim fit considering the fact that they stretch out, but I don't like nut huggers.
Aug 04, 2007 @ 23:59
Cheapest place to buy these online?

also, the Cures are slimmer than Standards?


Need a quick a reply for the wifey...
Aug 05, 2007 @ 00:06

Interest check: APC New Standard size 27, worn lightly on and off for 2 weeks with little to no signs of wear.
Aug 05, 2007 @ 00:11
Dissapointed?
Aug 05, 2007 @ 00:13
Nah I always liked APC, but lately I've been working on other pairs of jeans so these just sit in my closet and collect dust.

Regular cuts aren't baggy. Hence why Levis makes a section called "Baggy/Loose Fit" What do you think the 550s are? And someone has been playing alittle too much beer pong haven't we? You just need to reevaluate your conclusions and at the end of the tunnel, it'll lead to what I originally stated.

I just enlightened a noob.blushing


Just because Levi's has jeans that are called Baggy/Loose fit, it does not mean that 501s are not baggy in comparision to the demographic of most jeans worn by HB members. 501s are baggy around your ankles, knees, and for some around the thighs.

kickapop, first of all I am not a noob (despite my post count). If it did, then you would be a noob every couple weeks for getting banned for all the shit talking you do.

Second of all, what do you know about jeans? I don't recall seeing you wear ANY quality denim. I've seen you post shit in the WDYWT thread that looks like you ripped them straight off Zack Morris' legs. Let's not go there homegirl.

501s aren't baggy jeans.
Aug 07, 2007 @ 01:13
for those who care/are interested in shrinkage..

i'm a size 31 and copped 29 in rescues. for the first day, they fit perfectly. when i wore them the second time, they were huge. they actually drug well below my vans.

i soaked them in hot water for probably a hour at most, let them hang dry and they fit great again. i wore them like five times after the soak and they haven't stretched back.

next stop: dior 19 cm.

to this day, i can't understand why people use the word "copped". it just seems like they're trying so hard to fit into this whole "street" culture...

it's also sad to see people tossing around $140 jeans like it's a box of cereal.

sorry i'm not a white boy from oregon or some asian kid spoiled by his rich daddy.. copped is a natural word for black kids who REALLY did grow up in the "street" that you're so disgusted by. fall back.

hmmm can't say that you being "black" as you say has anything to do with it.

i neither grew up in oregon, nor am i an "asian kid" spoiled by their parents. but what does that have to do with anything? ignorant slang obviously knows no boundaries. don't pull that street/race card bullshit with me. i was born, and lived almost my enitre life in los angeles...around all types of cultures/races. i've never heard any of my friends use the word "cop". only on ISS and this site do i see it being over-fucking used by hypebeasts and boppers like you.

cop is ignorant bullshit. all you kids use it to fit into this bullshit "culture" you created. would it kill someone to say i "bought" these sneakers...or i "picked up" these new jeans. no...you just want to be accepted, like everyone else.

fall back...? lmfao. go back to school "street-thug". blushing
