First time dry denim buyer

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I've begun revamping my wardrobe and caring out my outward appearance. I'm pretty thrilled with the idea of getting some dry denim and I am considering either Nudies or APC. My question is for someone such as myself with somewhat muscular thighs which will probably get more muscular this summer as I work out, which cut from either brand would be best for me? Would it be worth it to shell out extra $$ to get Nudies? I live in Austin and the store Factory People by me sells APC Standards for $130 or something like that. There's a By George which sells Nudies but I haven't inquired as to what cuts/sizes they offer. The maximum I'm willing to spend is $150. Also, is stretching a serious problem if I want to wear these jeans for as long as possible? I don't want to get expensive denim only to be able to enjoy it for several months only to have it stretch out all weird. Finally, which cut/model would be best for summertime, seeing as I live in Texas and it's very hot? I'm 6' 165 pounds by the way.

Dude, no offense, but every single question you asked has been answered on this forum ad naseum. There is a post specifically geared towards dudes with muscular thighs. Try searching for awhile (there are about 192,393,004 posts comparing Nudie / APC).

But I'm lazy. Ok, I will utilize the "search" feature.

This is the exact problem, the more posts there are about a topic, the more difficult it is to sort through the mess.

GO with the APCs: at that price point, they are a better value. You're Welcome!

and just to clarify: Everyone loves the Nudie Regular Ralf and the APC New standards Regular Ralfs size down one from normal, APC read the sizing thread (link to it in the ultimate streetwear thread) Regular Ralfs are a slimmish normal fit through the thighs, new standards are the same. If they're too tight for you (try them on at Factory people), try the APC rescues, they should be a little looser. Be warned, sizing on the APC rescues is even more screwy than the standards.

Size the RR's depending on how you like to wear them too. Most of the pics in the Nudie booklet are probably in the person's regular size (i.e. slightly anti-fit). If you want a slimmer fit - size down one. If you want a really loose fit, size up one.
