Small DENIM Questions Thread

Sep 21, 2007 @ 18:49
just bought my 1st pair of nudie ever (grim tim dry black selvage), do i just wear them straight or should i soak them first? i dun want it to shrink, and these are black not indigo , will i be able to get fades and honeycombs?

Just wear them straight off. Yes they will fade, black denim takes longer though.

I got a pair of Nudie Black Slim Jims i've been wearing them for 2-3 months heavily and no big signs of fades or honeycombs. Does washing having any effect on the process of the fading and honeycombs? if so how should i soak them?

shrink to fit.

if i'm usually a 30"/32" in levi's 514, what size should i get for nudie slim jims?

how much should i size down on APC new cures? im about 31.5" measured just on the hips, where i wear my jeans. 29 i assume?
Oct 02, 2007 @ 17:12
Size down one for NC's.


Oct 02, 2007 @ 18:04
also, are the NS and NC models made out of the same denim, just cut differently? i see amazing evolutions of new standards on a regular basis, but rarely of the new cures...

if i want to shrink up my jeans around the waste, would it work to just let the waste of the jeans hang into hot water and let it soak?

i was looking at a pair of nudie slim jims and the description said broken twill,what does broken twill mean?

ok. yesterday, I went downtown and I found some EDWINS for 70 bucks. I tried them on and I liked the fit. I'm looking for some picture of the model that I was wearing and the model.
they remind me those nbhd denim without the holes:
(sorry for the comparison)

they are black with a lot fading, almost everywhere

^^are you posting a question, or are you just looking for a photo...if you've seen them in person i don't see why you need to find a photo. just think it over for a few days, and if you liked the way they look then buy it.

yea i figured that...i dont want to go nuts with some of the crazy shit people come up with...like if i just throw them in the washing machine whats the best way to not lose a lot of dye and shrink them...or does shrinking and losing die go hand in hand? theyre a lighter indigo to begin with...not nearly as dark as the traditional 501s
Oct 09, 2007 @ 08:05
wash insdie out cold with a natural soap... seventh generation makes a really good natural laundry detergent.

I know you don't like cheap mondays cheep, due to their low quality... but do you know if the "tight" ones stretch at all? I have some in my waist size and they are incredibly tight. Thanks.
Oct 09, 2007 @ 08:21
i think they are stretch denim, so they wont stretch as much... or they will but they wont stay as stretched out when you take them off.

if they are not, then i dont really know. all denim stretches to a point... im not sure how much they do tho.
Oct 09, 2007 @ 10:42
Just on the Cheap Mondays, the Skinny Fits dont stretch over a point, or it is really hard to make the stretch over that point.

And a question, does anyone know if the Cheap Monday Regular Raw denim is sanforised or not, copped on impulse even though I should have gone with some April 77's...dam
Oct 09, 2007 @ 10:46
its sanforized... minimal shrinkage

heres a quick list of non sanforized jeans
levis raw LVC
levis shrink to fit 501
studio d'artisan
sugarcane raw
eternal raw
warehouse raw
most other raw japanese repro denim

if your jeans are not one of these than its 99% certain that they are sanforized.

I'm looking for a new pair of denim.
After looking for some denim, I'm thinking about getting a pair of APC's (the new standards) or a pair of nudies (I don’t remember the model, but I tried a pair of black/grey raw denim w/ tapered leg). I saw some pics of the Slim Jims and I like the fit.

I’m 5"6' and 127 lbs. I'm looking for something slimmer than the 501s (I’m actually wearing a pair of 501 raw selvedge and I'm getting tired of those) with tapered leg and NOT skinny.
I don't mind if they aren’t selvedge (but it's a plus)
I'm thinking about spending 150-200$ for a pair.

Is there any other good brands that make nice raw denim under 200$?
I saw some acne jeans but I don’t like them (not really rigid)
