I tried a few pairs of jeans today. Basically I'm looking for something a little bit more bootcut than my usual straighleg which will be a change of pace from the jeans I got and the New Standards I'm getting. Got a few comments and looking for advice (keep in mind that I'm the kind of person that doesn't find Acne action jeans to be that tight and that wears a 1/small in APC so what works for you might not work for me and vice versa): -I still dislike True Religion and Chip & Pepper, maybe I keep trying the same models without noticing but they always seem overdone and True Religion is so low rise it makes me look like a plumber when I'm standing and C&P is big/small in all the wrong places... -I tried on a pair of JP Da'Mage Ice34, I think the name of the collection was "White". They were pretty nice and I loved the fit but I was wearing a 29 and maybe (big maybe) could have gone lower but they didn't have them so I have no idea (I'm supposed to wear a 30 what's the deal with all those oversized jeans...???). Here's a few questions I have: 1)Anybody has more information on this brand/wash and how they age? My perception is that they'll get a lot lighter very quickly. 2)They had them in 29/34 but I probably needed a 29/29-30. Seems to me like they would still look great and keep their style even I had they shortened but maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, what do you think? Any advice to make sure they're ok on that point? 3)Additionally is $185 a reasonnable price for these or was the store overcharging? -I Tried on a pair of Nudie Bootcut Ola Dry and they still seemed slightly too big at 30 but they didn't have 29 so I had no way to make sure. Now: 1)Does Nudies run true to size (not according to the jeans measurement index at least...) and should I try a 29 or am I slightly anal about having a tight fit? 2)What's your take on the Bootcut Ola versus other nudie models (especially the Reg ralf in dry selvedge)? 3)I have the same problem than with the JP Da'Mage, the inseam for those is 34 and I'm not sure I wouldn't look stupid if I got them shortened 4)Is $140 a reasonnable price for Nudies Bootcut Ola Dry? Thanks a lot to all the denim pros out there.
