post #10651 of 16157

Hello Everyone!

 

I am updating my closet and getting rid of all my hollister/express jeans and starting off with something more plain and simple. What would yall suggest in Levi's the 514 or the 501 shrink to fit? I tried them on and felt them in the store the other day and the 501's felt way more durable and raw if that makes any sense. Thanks!

By the time I realized there was a dark nearly black stain in the middle of the toebox about 1/4 inch in diameter, devastating. I tried using cornstarch to lift up the stain then a tiny amount of white vinegar with little luck, a bit paranoid to overtreat and make things worse.

Do I have any hope of saving these via a professional shoe cleaner? I am traveling until next Monday so the soonest I will be able to see one is in 3 days, hoping that won't make it more difficult to treat as well.







I would try using a rubber eraser to try to get most of it out. Probably won't get all of it out but it will help. Then maybe use a suede brush after.

The 501 STF are raw. I haven't tried on 514s in a long time but I don't remember them fitting that slim. If you want a pair of cheap jeans you should maybe check out Uniqlo.

A cobbler should be able to do this.

Will be in Chicago for the next few days, how are the sales at Barney's and other places that an SFer might care about?

How do you trade with someone securely? I'm pretty scared I'm gonna get screwed (over pretty expensive stuff)- so how do I prevent this?

Probably some synthetic blend... like a crazy/longer version of Raf's hairy cardigan.

Not from here, but his ebay has pos feedback. But I'm just worried if I send it and he doesn't send his stuff I'll be SOL. And what do you mean paypal?

He probably assumed you were buying/selling when you said "trading" as opposed to actually swapping items.

Should all my dress pants be slim fit or is it ok to get straight fit?
 

post #10665 of 16157

nah m8, he said, "trading on the internet seems pretty sketch" lol.

 

@Skwalihd: It's your preference. If your top is slim, I'd go for slim bottom, vice versa.
