i have a budget of 200 bucks for new jeans. what should i get,
i wanna upgrade from unbrandeds, and looking for a skinny but not skin tight fit.
recommendations?


I'd recommend APC and Naked & Famous as brands to check out. Different people have different definitions of what a "skinny" fit is exactly, but for N&F, I would check out the Skinny Guy cut, and for APC, I would check out the New Cure and Petite Standard cuts.
May 30, 2011 @ 01:13
I would suggest apc petit standards and that's the one in working on right now, it's tight but not skin tight. Also, weird guys arnt that slim @lcky

Sized wrongggggggggggg >smh

how's the quality on obey raw denim? im thinking about copping a pair.

I'm looking for some slim fitting (slim straight or slightly tapered) black coated denim. I know about the Nudie Grim tim and Thin Finn, but I'm wondering if there's some different brands out there. Not really a fan of Nudie.
May 31, 2011 @ 00:56
i feel ya on the nudies, not that much of a fan either. check out the naked and famous black selvedge, 3sixteens got a black pair thats pretty dope too. also take a look at thvm atelier, they have some really nice black jeans not raw or selvedge but damn nice fits and for a pretty good price point too, i know revolveclothing has them if you wanna check it out
May 31, 2011 @ 14:21
Are any of those coated though? I couldn't find any
May 31, 2011 @ 15:42
no dice, coated black is pretty hard to find lol

I did find a raw black coated slim fit jean by Obey on Karmaloop though:

I have a pair of Naked & Famous Weird Guy's in Indigo Selvedge.
They stretched quite a bit, as well as they had "knee bags" and stretched near the knee area to the point where they looked ridiculous.
I decided to soak them, and now they're basically not stiff at all to the point where it won't retain any honeycombs, whiskers, etc. I soaked them following instructions.. So I don't think I did it wrong..

So I'm wondering how I can avoid kneebags, and how I can make them stiff again..? Was reading about starch, but would like to confirm!
Jun 06, 2011 @ 00:21
Kneebags are natural everybody that bends their knees in jeans gets them. Yeah if you want them stiff reapply starch, it sounds like that soak rinsed out a good bit of it.

Thanks very helpful!

does anyone know anything about gap selvage denim? are they worth it or should i go with some apcs for a couple more dollars?
Jun 09, 2011 @ 14:02
Gap selvedge is pretty sweet, I've seen some crazy faded ones. I hear a lot of people debate between those and unbranded selvedge jeans, and that they're kinda the same quality as uniqlo jeans. But it's up to how you want the cut/fit. I love APC's cuts but I do think they're a little overpriced for the quality but again its just up to you and what you are looking for.

My friends who have APC's love them and I know a few guys who have the Gap selvedge and they rave about them all the time (they especially talk about the price because it goes on sale)

Gap selvage denim is good for the price, but the APCs will be nicer and have better fitting cuts for most people. Personally, I would spend a few more dollars and go with the APCs.

thank you both for the replies!
Jun 10, 2011 @ 22:41

How can I make my denim stiffer after washing?

Jun 13, 2011 @ 14:52

starch.
starch is what makes your jeans stiff and if they aren't stiff anymore makes sense to add some right? haha. be careful tho sometimes it can really stink.. you could try some spray starches like Faultless, Niagra Spray Starch, Dr. Beckmann, and Easy On Double Starch, or you could try and mix some starch and water yourself and spray it on your jeans. spray it on your jeans fully or just the spots you want to reform shape (honeycombs, whiskers, etc) until damp, then wear them for a little so it forms better or just let them hang out. either way, starching is a great way to bring back the rigidness of your jeans

I'm about to do my first wash on my APC NCs, what detergent should I use, APC recommends Woolite Black but all I have is

will this do, or should I go buy some Woolite Black?
Jun 18, 2011 @ 14:23
it depends what you want, woolite black is good for preventing indigo loss, but i dont really care and just use anything as long as there isnt bleaching agents and a lot of weird chemicals and stuff.
Jun 18, 2011 @ 14:58
Alright thanks I don't really care about indigo loss haha.

this may come off as a stupid question
but has anybody ever tried wearing thier jeans in a sauna?

i know that hot water shrinks denim but i am trying to strech out my a.p.c.'s because i sized down way too much and have been wearing them for 6 months and are still tight as fuck.

would i be able to strech my jeans out if i went in the sauna wearing my jeans and did streching excersizes..?

What's your actual waist and how much did you size down by? Have you washed them at all?

Hot water does shrink them but washing will loosen up threads and they'll lose rigidity because the starch will be out of 'em.
My guess is that stretching in a sauna will probably loosen up the threads and they'll stretch out.
You're going to want to keep them on and keep moving until they're pretty dry though.

DAMN I can't wait to see the fades on these :p
Try P90X, plyometrics underwater

Petit Standard, size down 1 or 2 depending on how tight you want 'em! Good luck!
