i can't decide on what length inseam to get when i order my rakers

im pretty tall, but a 34" is good for me normally....would they look shit being hell tight with epic stacks??

id rather not hem them as well due to the fact that the finish probably wouldnt be as good as the original

Depends on what you want my man.
I'm a fan of epic stacks as long as they sit right.

Measure your inseam, it's something you should know anyways. Put a book in between your legs and measure from the top of the book to your inner heel. For jeans it's advisable to go 2-4" from whatever your inseam is, depending on the amount of stacks you want and if you're soaking.

If you have a 29-30" inseam, go with 32 in jeans. 31-32" inseam, go with 34. (i.e. I have a 31" inseam and always go with 34 on jeans)

Hemming is NEVER a good idea, I don't care what anyone says.

mmm im probably go with the 34" i think more of a clean look.

i contacted ande and he said that STF Rakers and what not are still available now

and the he will begin making the rakers in indigo with the japanese denim shortly

so what are grifters like?
Oct 01, 2009 @ 19:08
and slackers

are slackers just skinny jeans with like a high waist

like normal/baggy jeans ?)


slackers dont seem that skinny, rakers are skinny
slackers are nice slim fit jeans
not high waisted either, just higher rise than grifters
the rise is about 10 point something, which would be midrise
Oct 01, 2009 @ 19:25
probably be my next pair of jeans once Ande starts selling the
slackers with the new japanese denim
Oct 01, 2009 @ 20:22
slackers are bomb
can't wait to see the new denim
Oct 02, 2009 @ 01:18

Oct 02, 2009 @ 15:59

so grifters or rakers?

Depends on whether you want a super slim fit (Rakers) which are prolly equivalent to Levis 510's...or Grifters, which are slim but not super skinny.

Decision's up to you and your personal preference.


Oct 03, 2009 @ 16:34
so are grifters are 511?
Oct 03, 2009 @ 16:36
and do i size up or down or stay true?
Oct 03, 2009 @ 16:40
im not sure if grifters are comparable to levis, but i dunno

if u buy Sanforized, get tts or size up 1 if you want more waist room
if you buy Un-Sanforized, then get up 1 or up 2 if you want more room
all of this info is on his site...
Oct 03, 2009 @ 16:46
i wanna know how the big difference between grifters rakers and slackers

so lets say rakers are slim like 510s do i size up for more room?

im trying to figure out if grifters are 511 slim or 514 slim
Oct 03, 2009 @ 17:36
Lol you remind me of myself a week back grizzzly, I was all over the place trying to figure out which pair of jeans I wanted to buy.

Slackers are the same as Grifters except that Slackers have more thigh room and a higher rise.
Rakers are basically 510's, I believe Grifters should be between 514 & 511 but more to the 511 slim. & Slackers I would say would probably be like 520's or exactly between 514 & 511s.
Oct 03, 2009 @ 17:39
slackers are actually a tad higher rise
Oct 03, 2009 @ 18:01
lol thanks goldengoose. I thought it was lower because the rise was longer.
Oct 07, 2009 @ 20:12
definatley gonna be my next purchase... hope the price stays the same or drops
Oct 08, 2009 @ 19:26
for real im just waitin to finish on my PS and then im definitely gonna cop a pair of grifters
Oct 08, 2009 @ 20:48
Grifters ftw.
Oct 13, 2009 @ 22:49
im guessin the switch to japanese selvage is about to drop, cuz their site isnt givin u much options if ur lookin to buy right now
Oct 14, 2009 @ 00:10
Oct 14, 2009 @ 20:41
Huh? Everything is still up for me.
Oct 14, 2009 @ 21:40

Oct 15, 2009 @ 23:09
