Dressier Jeans - Page 3

post #31 of 38
Can't go wrong with some APC rescues. Plus I love the fact that they have no major markings, such as big horshehoe prints on your butt!

Let's go back to the basics!

Also, if you are a fan of the PDC LTD fit (which it sounds like you are) look around for them in the "Miles" wash, which I've seen at Barneys and on Revolve, it is very dark, almost black, and looks to be sort of a resin wash. If they fit you right, and you don't mind the current quality of PDC (not the best), they can be found on sale. Earnest Sewn are also nice, if they fit you.

Great post, thank you. Thing is I don't like straight leg jeans at all but I'll check out that wash you're talking about. I like the rb1 enough that I'll try them on next time I'm at Barneys. The pdc I have is the bmx wash of the full low boot (LTD is too slim on me), a very dark indigo and very nice with 2% spandex. The fit is perfect on me, not baggy and not slim with the rise just right. I've never had much luck with ernest sews sizing and fits but I'll try them again. I'm afraid they'll either be too slim or too full of a leg to wear with my denim/dove grey loafers.

When I tried the BMX, they were a bit too baggy for me, just like the RB1, so despite its being a straight leg, you might really like those RBs. Also, when was the last time you tried the LTD? You will see people around here talking about the dip in PDC quality, about two years ago, and around that time they also started cutting the LTD a bit wider. As much as I dislike the quality and ubiquity, you might also try 7 for all mankind in the relaxed fit, sounds like it could be just the fit you want. That and whatever the more relaxed fit from Citizens of Humanity is. Those two are pretty full in the leg, with a bootcut. Also, if you are willing to give straight leg a chance, check out the Nudie Baggy Bjorn, maybe those would be to your liking?

You know what, it depends on what shoes hence occasion I plan on wearing them for. I make it sound like I like the full leg but as time goes on I like my jeans slightly slimmer though they'd hardly be called slim. Haven't tried the LTDs recently and I despise sevens. The rest of the pdc stuff well I'm not crazy about their washes nor ernest sewn. Citizens I refuse to wear and they are too baggy for me anyway so the point is moot. I'm getting more and more jeans for going out hence I don't want huge bootcuts that look awkward with all my loafers. I really do like the rb1s from the pics so they might be the ticket.

If you are a 30 waist by chance, Activeendeavors.com still has the RB1, and you get the 15% discount by using the discount code "styleforum" or something like that (there is a thread about it). I would also give the RRDS you mentioned another shot, they soften up pretty fast, and you can of course move this along with a wash soon after you start wearing them.

Thought of one more that might be worth trying: Rock and Republic. They have a range of fits, and, like your BMX, a bunch of them are available in stretch. I feel they appeal to the same crowd as 7s, but aren't played out in the same way, and you won't see suburban dads and high school kids rocking them. eLuxury.com has a decent selection.

Flare Glenn is not discontinued though it may be harder to find depending on the demographic. There was a rumor circulating a few weeks or months ago that is was going to be pulled, but it either wasn't true, or Nudie changed their mind.

Once again thanks for the thoughts my man. I'm a 33/34 waist so I'll have to resort to full pop for them unless I can convince revolve to carry them. I had a pair of RRs but took them back because they were too tight around my waist, the rise was too low and the flare well you get the idea. If I keep the Ralfs and I wash them soon, what effect will it have on the color/texture?
