does anyone know how inseams work? i know that the higher the number the longer the leg is of course but i am asking about proportion. today i tried on a pair of khakis and i went with the longer inseam so it wouldnt look like they just end at my shoes. thing is, i was wondering if the thigh gets bigger as well if you get a longer inseam? wouldnt companies make the thigh room bigger even if it is the same waist just in case that taller person has larger thighs? it wouldnt be right to just extend the lower half of the pant legs would it? i am asking because i wanted the slimmer fit between the two (but at the same waist size) and was scared that if i got the higher inseam then the butt/leg would be slightly larger.

my true size is a 30. but from what im hearing its that ps's are slimmer than nc's so what im getting at is I dont mind to wear a belt if it gets lose around the waist, so im jsut wondering would sizing down on one size with ps's give me around the same style for me if i were to size down 2 on nc's.

i got some naked and famous at buffalo exchange and i noticed that the previous owner had machine washed and dried them. is there any way i could stiffen them up to somewhat original stiffness?

I am looking to buy a pair of dry denim jeans and am looking for advice. I have a pair of Polo Vintage 67 'dry' 'selvedge' jeans that I have worn for the past year, and they are the best/most comfortable jeans i have ever owned. The only thing is I cannot find anything about these jeans anywhere on the internet, except a few small posts. I am pretty sure they were raw when i bought them (though I didnt know this at the time), because of the way they faded.

I wasn't interested in raw denim before these jeans, but after having a pair I decided I would like to get a new pair. I am looking for raw denim under $100 with a slim but not particularly tight fit. So far I have looked at some Levi's 501's, 514's, and some Gap selvedge dry denim.

I would like to be able to try them on first, but in many cases thats not possible, so maybe just a fit comparison to levis 501 or 514 would be good

thanks

i think the cut on 660 is more flattering for most people, but if you could manage to get your hands on contest 811s i would do that

Hey, I want to wash my Apc's.. how should I go bout this besides using woolite black to minimize indigo loss? I want to know what temperature I should use etc.
Aug 25, 2010 @ 14:04
Probably a cold wash if you're concerned with losing too much dye

will 8.2 leg opening drag on authentics?
Aug 26, 2010 @ 13:34
it might what size authentics?
u could get away with it for the most part if your inseam isnt too long.
Aug 26, 2010 @ 13:39
10.5
i have minimal stacks
Aug 26, 2010 @ 23:00
you should be good possibly maybe a small cuff if anything.
Aug 27, 2010 @ 00:32

I got a new pair of unbranded raw denim and they fit like cardboard, plus they could shrink a little, even though they are Sanforized, will a hot soak mess up the fading process or anything? And will they even shrink a good bit?

soaking them will make them stiff even more when they dry, but itll help setting creases and remove excess dye. They might shrink a lil not really noticeable since they are sanforized.

It won't mess up fading your process.

is there a special name for levis that dont display the waist or inseam numbers on the leather patch only the model number. I copped some levi from sufu and its a rigid 501 with red line selvedge, and it says 501 on the leather patch but is blank for both the waist and legnth.

Having a hard time getting my stacks to settle properly, anyone have any tips?
Aug 28, 2010 @ 03:15
^give they are still stiff, give em some time. if not they are just 2 long. HEM
Aug 28, 2010 @ 16:06
yeah just give it time dubious, it'll get softer.
Or if your really annoyed by them, soak em.
Water will make it softer (gets rid of some starch) should stack better.
Aug 29, 2010 @ 11:42
Thanx guys, they've settled in nicely, gave them a soak, let'em dry, then
wore then out to the fair with some nike flights on. They look
fine now.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a pair of denim that will fit similar to my APC NS (sized down two) that I am looking to retire. My budget is anything $200 and lower. As much as I'd like to cop another pair of these, I really want to try another brand. So if anyone has any suggestions please let me know, thanks.
