Thanks. And besides just speaking to people, there's no way to search for particular combos? Color, origin, etc of the threads, etc?
Quick question: when denimheads use the term "cast", are they referring to the hue of the sheen which the denim posesses in light?

There's a lot more leniency with colors here than in somewhere like MC. People will abide by rules but there exist exceptions to them, you'll need to figure out when you can wear brown shoes with something black, or what sorts of black shoes are appropriate in general. One thing I can say is if you're like anyone here and wear lots of raw denim, you might want to avoid navy colored outwear unless you can make it work.

I'd like to add although APC are the introductory raw jean you might want to browse another simple brand or two if you feel there's anything about APC which puts you off. They're notorious for stretch (multiple sizes) and I personally do not think they age well. I don't expect you to anticipate wearing your jeans down to death but I see much more unattractive, washed out pairs of worn APC than I do attractive and brilliant ones. Pre-styled denim does fade but...

Although prior to measuring your waist you may have consistently bought jeans in the same tagged size, this doesn't mean there's any correlation if all your jeans fit ever so slightly different, which I'm almost positive they do.
This should also be a good resource for others to see how certain fades are produced and by what brands assuming everyone gives details or activities they engage in for the purpose of this contest.
I'd definitely consider hiking, swimming, tackle football, etc with the somets.
