When people refer to "worn unwashed for 5 months", do you literally mean that they were worn everyday? (sorry for the stupid question)
Nov 14, 2011 @ 20:56
Not necessarily, could mean they wore them off work/weekends for 5 months.

Thanks for the clarification.

a.p.c or baldwin?
Nov 15, 2011 @ 06:01
Depends on what qualities you like in denim. With APC you get a nice clean jean that you can wear for a good bit and with Baldwin you get a nice jean with nifty detailing, some interesting cuts and the washes are not so bad.

Anyone got any black denim suggestions? Was looking at the black APC's on RSVP, but not sure what they really look like in person. Maybe considering Naked & Famous too...


What is your price range? Blue in Green just got the Samurai Black Shadows in stock. They are the 710 cut (slim, tapered) in slubby 17 oz. denim. Those would likely be my first choice if I were to buy a pair of black jeans right now. They are not cheap, though.

If the price is not an issue, I would also suggest looking at any overdyed Iron Heart jean. Those are all outstanding black jeans.

thanks.

does anyone have fit pics or evo of a pair of baldwins?

Pretty straight forward:

I'm unsure which pair I should get after my nudie grim tims (they were great for the start but now I'm looking for something "better")

Pure Blue Japan or Naked & Famous.

It seems that PBJ has the better denim but I, somehow, are also into the whole N&F thing.
give me your opinion please ;)

PBJ makes a better jean but will cost more too. If it is within your price range, I would personally go with PBJ.

Is there anyway to make sure that the crotch (not really the crotch, but the part of the jeans where everything comes together) not rip / tear?
I'm pretty sure it's the way I wear them, but I don't know what the problem is. It has happened to my sams, red ears and vintage levis. I didn't sag on my sams or the levis but my red ears do sag because they're overly large ( or I have too much stuff in my pockets).

Does anybody have fit pictures of sz 28 tapered jeans with 10.5 thigh measurements? I want to get tapered 3sixteens, but I don't know if the thigh is too big or not

So I'm planning to buy APCs Petit Standards, my question is this:

I heard they stretch around two sizes, and I usually wear 33-34, am I good buying 31, or should I stay with the 33? My size really depends on the jeans, how's it gonna look like if I stay TTS?


I'm a true 27-28. PS in size 26 fits perfect (couldnt do the top button at first). i originally had it in 25 and it was WAY too small (couldnt do any buttons). 32 should be perfect for you. I think 33 will end up being too loose for you. I mean, you ARE going for a fitted jean, right? that's why you're considered the PS in the first place?

someone help i.d. these?

Iron them out then lean back every time you sit down, and don't sag your pants.

Ok, so I'm searching for some new jeans. I've had my apc ns for about 2 years, and I've gained about 20lbs since I enlisted. Feels good man. I've been wanting something a lil bit more loose, something along the lines of 511s. Butttt obviously cool guy raw denim.
Or could I just get ns again and just size down one instead of 3? I'm down for another brand too. As along as its under 250... Thanks.

NS is always good. Sizing down 2 is enough on those. Instead of not sizing down on NS, maybe you want some APC rescues.

what levis? im thinkin 510? but they look too skinny
Dec 06, 2011 @ 01:15
Xpost from NF Denim thread.

Just bought a pair of WG and love em. then fit snug so im hoping theyll stretch a bit with wear, and at that point, theyll be be perfect.

but anyways…the indigo is already starting to rub off on my white shirt, hands, etc. i dont mind it much but im worried about my shoes. is there anything i can do specifically just to the leg opening to help? i dont wanna put tape inside it or anything. i hot soaked a pair of levis just at the leg opening one time, and the part that was in water changed color, so i dont wanna do that again. any suggestions?

Fuck. What kind of denim would you recommend that is better than APCs that go down to a 25 waist?

Stacks, particularly chino's:

Is there a particular way one would store it when not wearing to obtain stacks? or is it all simply height?
Dec 09, 2011 @ 06:06
itll happen with wear. and yeah, assuming the inseam is 34, theyll stack more than a 30 in inseam. and itll depend on your height as well.

You guys probably get this question all the time, but I'm 180 lbs and 5'9-- pretty bulky, not so much fat. Want to get a pair of nudies, and I usually wear slim jeans so I'm about a 32-32 in 514 levis...any idea which fit I should get and if I should adjust the measurements? I sort of think I can fit into slim jims, but my thighs are sort of big (because I fence), any suggestions? blushing
