i have some 3sixteens going my way and they need to be hemmed, so i have a few questions

1. should i go to a real tailor or would the laundry place that does alterations fine? the closest tailor that i know right now is at LA which is denim doctor, thats like an hour drive
2. what do i ask the tailor? my friend said chainstitch them, clueless to what that is
3. whats the average price for a hem?

They're pretty generic fashion denims. Washes are usually sub-par and the cotton quality leaves much to be desired.

1. Depends on what specifically you want and #2
2. Tell him to hem them, a chainstitch is just a vintage element like hidden rivets and a selvedge trim coin pocket, only necessary if you're a stickler for tiny details.
3. You can do it yourself with a $3 sewing kit but a simple alteration like that should be no more than $10.

Can anyone comment on these jeans? Are they worth it?
They're Big John Rigid Selvedge Jeans - Blue (There's probably a wash name for them but barney's is usually missing key details.)

Are the Skull 5010's still ass? Because I heard they changed something about the denim that made them shitty. Shopping around for new jeans and trying to figure out what I want. Thanks. Also, what model PBJ would fit most like Samurai 710's?

quick question... just got some N&F broken twill as a christmas present and should i pre soak first and then hem and taper? or get them altered then do a presoak?

"leather jackets and bape shark hoodies, its a struggle but we make it work"

Dec 26, 2011 @ 06:17
nah don't pre soak you don't need to, what cut did you get? IMO, if they need to get tapered right off the bat you should have gotten a different cut, i understand its a christmas present doe
if you want to alter em i'm not sure how it goes either you soak to get the shrinkage out then hem or hem and then soak
presoakin it gets rid of that initial starch and it'll be harder to form creases afterwards

yo how do RRL slim fits size TTS?
Dec 29, 2011 @ 02:22
Size down 1 for slim, 2 for skinny
Dec 30, 2011 @ 22:05
is the amount of stretching dependent on how much you size down by? example would be if i went true to size on a pair of jeans, would they stretch less, than if i size down 1 or 2? or is it gonna stretch the same amount no matter what?
Dec 30, 2011 @ 22:14
Amount of stretching depends on the denim itself mainly, different types of jeans/denim material stretch differently, but might stretch a wee bit more if say you have jeans that are really tight on you, and thus you put more stress into the denim.

I have a pair of G-Star jeans. I would say that the quality is lower than N&F or APC.

I don't know what Skull has been doing lately, but the last pair of jeans I bought from them about a year ago did have a drop-off in denim quality compared to other Skull jeans I have owned in the past.

For PBJ, I would say that the XX-011 or XX-013 fits the most like the Samurai 710, but for these models, the PBJ is a little more tapered and lower rise than the Samurai.

I bought those, and I would say that they are a very good deal at the sale price, but I don't think I'd want to pay any more for them than that. As you can see from the pics, they are higher-waisted straight leg, not a slim fit. I sized down 2 from my actual waist measurement on them.

3sixteens or baldwins?

in terms of quality
Jan 02, 2012 @ 22:01

what the fuck does that even mean? all denim usually runs 34 or 36 default. if you want some variable shit go for some levis. check these sites and see what's up.

I'm a very skinny nigga what are some of the skinniest jeans I can get that are like Nudies and APC's?

Black power, spend another 50 and get some pure blue japan..I haven't owned any but they maybe my next pair if I can hold off form buying other things.

Kmz- I would say buy different denim just so you can experience different kinds ya know. Unless you really loved APC. I want PBJ next or something skinnier and a little more tapered than Naked & Famous. I own the skinny guy and weird guy, but I haven't tried WG in 27 yet so I might do that before PBJ. Thing is they don't make every WG in 27.

getting a new pair of denim soon.
what do yall reccomend i should get apc ps or n&f weird guy?

Jan 12, 2012 @ 06:40
If you want an exotic denim try N&F, if you just want some plain blue jeans APC is a slightly better choice.
Jan 13, 2012 @ 04:08
how long until all the stretching is over and done with? assuming everyday wear
Jan 13, 2012 @ 05:10
Generally about 3 weeks to a month
Jan 16, 2012 @ 18:17
by sitting like this or something similar (i like to have my leg up at the computer) would it cause more proneness to crotch tears? only when the denim is fresh? ( so when it softens up its okay? ) ive got a pair of uniqlos that ive worn for 3 years and its only now starting to wither in the crotch area but i always hear people getting crotch tears =S

Jan 17, 2012 @ 16:36
my (rather) new n&f deep indigos keep bleeding on my suede sneakers, is there anything that I can stop this problem? I already sprayed impregnator on it..
