my favorite pair of jeans ever were the first issue (2006 I think it was?) of the DH silver selvedge, 19cm. Agressive taper without being carrot legged. Don't have them anymore but wish I did. If anyone has a pair of the older ones, 19cm (which is actually like a 15-16cm hem) in size 27 or 28, I'd be happy to buy, if they're in new to half decent condition.
I have a pair of size 26 APC NS that I've had for 3 years, the fade is intense and they've stayed together. They're pretty good but the lower leg has never been to my liking, I wish they tapered a centimeter or two more. I have a boxfresh pair as well that I never wear because the first 6 months in raw NS is awkward for me, they don't look that good.
I have two pairs of the black stretch APC's, the ones with the little Riri zipper. ALso good jeans, I like my black overdyes simple and skinny, with stretch.
I liked Julian Reds and stuff but never liked the fat selvedge.
Margiela jeans are nice and I like the detailing and the top block fit, but the ones I have are way too skinny for even me, so I let my girlfriend wear them instead.
