Brands like samurai, iron heart, momo, etc don't really make slim tapered cuts. Their fits at the knees and below are all baggy. The momo collabos are only skinny fits. Flathead has one but I don't like the dimensions. APCs have bad fabric and a knee bulge problem. Never tried edwin but I doubt they'll have a good tapered cut. I've found like two that could potentially work. The LVC 1954 501, which different sites give conflicting measurements, and the UES 400t http://ues.shop.japaneseselvagejeans.com/goods.php?goods_id=305. They gave a reply then ignored my follow-up. I'm not really a, what the kids call "denimhead" but having tried out a bunch of stuff, there's a big quality to price difference among the common mid and upper tier brands. N&F at $150 is just not worth it unless that's the max you can spend, which in that case you can still get something a lot better secondhand.
It's all about the thighs man, at least for me. None of this sizing up or down crap makes any sense. Unless the cut is vanity sized, if so it's easy to tell from the waist measurements.

Don't they have a 511 in an indigo-ish wash?
I've been wearing some gap skinny selvedge I found at a thrift. My legs aren't really that big anymore though.
I don't have to pay for secondaries, which is why the number is this high. My school sends in a committee letter next week and I'm hoping to submit my secondaries by then. I'm almost done pre-writing. Might start submitting today since I've had a few for almost a month (pre-verified ones).
I've given up on denim again. Only had one pair that I had high hopes for and now I'm selling them off for a loss (nature of denim sales). I kept telling myself they'd eventually fit, but after sitting in my closet for all this time I just kinda go back to sweatpants and stretchy shits.
Me too. Nothing but baller sweatpants man!
Im doing 36-38" waist pants now.... squatting and deading is fun but I'd rather be able to wear 32-34" pants again. Hopefully with this cut I can do both
