Might be a stupid question but just how is tapering done on jeans? Do they just open up the leg up to the knee and taper from there or?!?!
Dec 11, 2009 @ 02:56
They unstitch the outseam and then pull it in to get the amount of taper that the owner wanted

Can selvage be tapered? just wondering..

hoe

Yes, but some tailors cut it off when they taper them so its good to inform them that you want to keep the selvedge intact.

Hmm is it possible to just taper from the knee down and not have the area above it changed?
Dec 11, 2009 @ 19:27
yes it is
Dec 11, 2009 @ 19:57
that's how they taper, from the knee down

i'm looking for a pair of black jeans (overdyed, not raw denim). I like the fit of my apc ns denim. anyone have any suggestions?
Dec 12, 2009 @ 20:36
if im gonna get my denim hemmed, would i have to tell them to keep them tapered, with the same leg opening? what would you say.

I want it hemmed with the result being the same leg opening?
I think you sorta answered your own question?

No, just tell them the amount in inches you wanted hemmed off your inseam. It shouldn't mess with the leg opening.

I got my LVC's slightly tapered. The tailor though tapered the selvedge, and now it looks extremely wide. Is it possible to bring them back and have him put the selvedge back to it's normal size, and have the inside of the leg tapered instead since I do like how they fit.

Your balls sweat, and it's bad for you.

What exactly does the weight of the denim mean ?
like people say
14oz japanese denim... or 21oz denim
Can someone explain ?
Dec 17, 2009 @ 18:55
iirc... it means each square yard weights 14 oz or 21 oz.

new to this denim game and HB,
would rain have any effects on my apcNS?

Dec 18, 2009 @ 03:23
If you washed them already then it shouldn't matter, but if you haven't yet, then
rain would cause indigo loss, but obviously depends on how wet ur denim gets.
Dec 18, 2009 @ 17:39
i just bought a pair of Unbranded. i got sz 30 and i'm general a 31, i'd say really 31.5. they only button the first 2. will they stretch out that much to fit perfectly?
Dec 19, 2009 @ 05:21
My current situation is that one leg shrunk due to beach water after a trip.

My question is, if I machine wash them, will they shrink back to even lenght, or will they shrink to proportion and remain uneven? Should i wash in hot or cold? And if continues to be unproportional, or if above method won't work, then should I just soak the longe side? Or am I just fucked?

Is this true? Its good idea, soak my apc's afte 2,5month's of wear? Will they fade really faster?
