i see people get called out for "sloppy stacking".. are the stacks supposed to be natural or are they 'forced'?

legit question

How should I size Skull Jeans 5010xx 6x6 RAW? I wear a sz28 APC New Cures and they fit perfectly. I was hoping that the skulls either stretch a bit more than these do or already have a slightly larger thigh opening or the same.

Does skull denim stretch more than APC or the other way around? Thanks.

Does anyone know how Cameland sized his skulls? I really like how his fit.

Stacking should be natural. Most people that have "sloppy stacking" are usually in need of a hem

What qualities do nonsanforized jeans have that make them more appealing to some than sanforized? I've heard people saying that nonsanforized is truly 'raw' while sanforized are merely rigid.

you guys think a 20cm (7.8-7.9) leg opening would still be good with vans authentics?
or would that kind of be pushing it?

I hadn't heard of that before but I guess it might be just because of the denim being more "pure" (unwashed) and unaltered. But I really don't think nonsanforized jeans are necessarily better than sanforized jeans, I don't see what would make them

Could be how the leg opening falls on a particular pair of shoes or maybe that the denim has lost its rigidity. There are a lot of variables to account for, but most commonly the one I see is an extra long inseam.

is there a way to loosen up your jeans so they are not skin tight.
Jul 31, 2010 @ 11:21
dont buy a skinny cut
do active stuff in them to stretch them
stop sizing down

Excuse my noobness. I just bought a pair of raw Drains from H&M. They're unwashed that is all I know or atleast they feel like APCs. I was wondering if you guys can help me decide if they will stretch or not so I can return them for a size down. I tried on 34 and 36. With 36, the waist fit comfortably. With a 34, i couldn't button the top, they were about 2-3.5 inches apart so I gave up forcing it. I went home with the 36s scared that since H&M denim is cheap, they might rip trying to stretch in the 34s. Problem is, I really wanted to get the 34s, because if they were to stretch they would fit me perfectly afterward without a belt. With the 36s, even if they do stretch a little bit im going to have to wear a belt which i do not like wearing. Think h&m denim will stretch? Keeping a 36 and having to wear a belt or go with a 34 that might not ever button lol.

i saw the drains today and was actually impressed that they had chain stitching, anyways i would not suggest sizing down on those, they look skin tight enough already. even if the waist stretches, the rest of the jean will not stretch as drastically as the waistline. also keep in mind that even if they do stretch, when you wash them they will simply shrink back down to size. keep the 36s and save up for a decent pair next time.

^ thank you

a bottle of jager just exploded on my n&f selvedges...=( its still too early for a soak, any ideas on what to do, i've been dabbing it with a damp cloth
Aug 02, 2010 @ 17:29
^ come on.. don't be stupid & say its too early for a soak. If it needs a soak, it needs it. There is no timeframe to soak it or not.

If you don't want much indigo loss, just cold soak it. It'll be fine.
Aug 02, 2010 @ 19:16
gonna do a cold soak on my 3sixteen sl100's tomorrow. turn em inside out right?
