Thanks APC NS sizing works roughly like this; subtract two from your waist size, and then an additional size if you...

Thanks! http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Blac...ean_16042.html No experience with them, but I've always thought those slanted pockets were a turn-off.
Frankly, I'm sort of glad to see selvedge denim become more widely available. Selvedge never equaled quality, anyway, but at least this says that people up top are paying attention.

Most people can't pull them off, but that's true with lots of things. I think it also depends on what you mean by "skinny". The standard, at least in US, seems to be bootcut or baggy jeans, at least among the general population. A skinny jean, to me, are those horrible torture pants you sometimes see kids on skateboards wearing; I'm aware, however, that, to some people, a skinny jean is anything that flatters the figure. For me, I prefer a slimmer, straight cut....
Yeah, I'm pretty certain these aren't raw, they weren't stiff enough. Mine shrunk slightly from washing, but the leg opening continues to be too big for my liking. The 514 cut, in general is a little bit too loose from the knee down, I hope Levi's puts it through a revision at some point (and lengthens the rise!).

The tag says they're made in China, despite the Nihon Denim thing on the inside of the right pocket. So the same as mentioned earlier in this thread. As far as Levi's go, though, I'd say these are a nice pair of jeans. Definitely heavier than any other pairs I've purchased from them.
Joke post?
