I decided to finally take the plunge on another pair of raw denim. I've had my APC NS since Nov 2009 and while they are still going strong, bleaching them has taken pretty far into "light denim" territory. I also ended up getting them significantly tapered after a couple years worth of wear, and resolved to get slimmer jeans to start with next time around. Was planning on going for APC PS but after reading a lot about how they're not really the best value anyway, I decided to go with these N&F "Super Skinny Guy" 12oz Stretch Selvedge Denim in Indigo from Blue Owl:
The measurements work out to pretty much exactly where my APC NS ended up after tailoring, and the 2% stretch fabric should make these a hell of a lot more comfortable to start with while still ultimately getting some good contrast fading, hopefully.
I'm probably bucking a growing trend in WAYWT to shift away from raw denim, but I also feel like I am settling into a style that works for me, so whatever.
