@nvus, really depends what your waist size/tag size of the denim.
reasearch different denim and check the measurement charts.

I'm a true size 30 waist. Will Raw Levi's Ltd Ed 501 1947 Jeans fit true to size? Also whats the price they go for brand new?

I know raw indigo denim can bleed but what about grey? Would it be noticeable on a white shoe?
Jul 11, 2010 @ 21:00
I heard LVC 1947 501 Rigid jeans were STF and that I should size up two. I am a true size 30 waist, ya'll suggest I size up to a 32 waist?

I'm trying to get a fit similar to this dude:

Can anyone tell me when is the best time to soak my APC's? And what's the difference between the effects of it being a hot or cold soak? Thanks in advance!
Jul 11, 2010 @ 21:39
hot soaking probably will make them shrink more and lose more dye. and i can't really tell you the best time to soak them. a lot will try to say go 6 months or so. but if they're dirty, soak/wash when you need to. if you're just soaking because you want to then it might be best to hold off until you need to. but that's just my opinion. soak them now if you want

I see, I've had them since august 09, and I've been giving them moderate wear.... I think a nice soak is in order. So hot is good right?
Jul 11, 2010 @ 22:57
nice, yea, a hot soak is probably good for those

Jul 14, 2010 @ 18:57

7.75 taper size for most slim straight fits such as Dukes, 514, etc would sit on chucks and authentics?

514s are like 8.5 and sit terrible on authemtics

please, if anyone knows.

I'm really stuck to get which high end brand of indigo colored raw denim to get. My budget is up to 300$. I want something along the fit of an Imperial Duke. Flathead, Sugarcane, Iron Heart, Naked and Famous comes to mind, but i don't know much.

Or should i just make a thread?
Jul 22, 2010 @ 15:27
don't make a thread
Jul 22, 2010 @ 15:31
I suggest something along the fit of an Imperial Duke, Flathead, Sugarcane, Iron Heart or even Naked and Famous
Jul 22, 2010 @ 15:56
lol
aren't most iron heart jeans over 300?
what are you looking for in a pair of jeans?
Jul 22, 2010 @ 21:42
Since nobody answered my question in Naked&Famous thread,I'm gonna post here.

Where exactly should I measure my true waist?Some people say below the belly button,others above it.So where is the truth hb?

medium to dark color of indigo
around 7.75 taper for WS30-34
slimstraight fit like the duke or a tapered 514(maybe slightly bigger)
and of course, great fading. looks great before and after.
budget up to 300.. though lower would be better but i want amazing raw denim

warehouse 660 or skull 5507xx?

also how to size on 660's? i've heard some ghastly sizing issues about them.
Jul 23, 2010 @ 12:06
how do you prevent flares at the hips/knees/ankles
Jul 23, 2010 @ 12:21
Not being graybill will help prevent ankle flare. Not being me will help prevent hip flare.

Quick question wearing while damp would be a good way to set good creases?
Jul 23, 2010 @ 14:04
Yes, I believe so. I think it would set better.

I have APC NC 30 and am looking for maybe another pair to throw into rotation. Hopefully an upgrade preferably.
Price around $100-250.
I am 6'3, 145lbs.
Any recommendations.
