Thanks Danda74, but I've been into vintage denim long enough to know what works for me and what doesn't - thanks for the feedback though (I size one up on my jeans for a loose fit, it's the way I wear my denim)

I'm cross-posting these pics from mynudies forum & my blog as requested by a member here: mainly to contribute to the details of different vintage-style makers' denim. More as a reference than anything - no need to comment on the fit (since people have different preferences anyway), just keep in mind that the fit pics from me are usually 'sized one up'.

I've cut-out the descriptions of the different jeans for the sake of brevity, those who're interested in knowing more about the brand, denim hand,& the pictures of many other jeans/jackets (mainly Japanese makers) etc please see my blog: http://indigoshrimp.wordpress.com/

Purchased from IIIrdIcon, I really like the fit of these, however the seat has some creasing action again. Is low rise the culprit?


Can I be honest.... I think you look fat in those jeans i.e. you don't look comfortable in it.

mikecch, can you put up some post-soak pics of the ROY jeans? I've been really interested in them and love the details he puts into each pair. I think they're going to be my next purchase when I have the $$. EDIT: NVM, I saw the pics post-soak on your blog.

I'm a noob, what do you guys mean by soak? I have a pair of raw jeans that I got from a neighbor brand new and they were some sample jeans but they're a little baggy. How can i shrink them a little?

You could either pre-soak it or just wear the shit outta them and then wash 'em after 6-8 months. By that time you could have your jeans form to your body. Or be normal and wash them every time you get your jeans dirty. I've had a 36 x 34 Levi Raw Jeans when I was dropping weight. I went from a 36 to a 34 but the jeans over time wash after wash fitted better for my body and now fit great!! So choose your poison, you'll be okay.

if the jeans are not sanforized, you have to soak them to get the proper fit, otherwise they will be much to large. If it is sanforized, the jeans won't shrink anymore so you do not need to soak.

there are plenty of threads that tell you how to soak, but basically just submerge them in hot water for an hour and let them air dry.

To each their own my friend...

I wouldn't be caught dead in skinny fits, but that's just me - I think I'm too old to pull that off. Keep in mind that Roy denim is shrink to fit, and the jeans will mould to the wearer over time - of course there will be flare in the thighs on a pair of traditional straights right after soaking for the first time, the denim is rigid and the shrinkage not complete, you really won't know how an unsanforised pair of jeans will drape and fit until a bit later on.

The fit of a pair of jeans is a very personal preference anyway, what works for you might not appeal to me - this is not hard to understand, hey?
