I'm a little confused as to why people are recommending RRL...Don't their cuts have pretty low rises? I wouldn't expect that aspect to appeal to an MC-er.

And yeah, good choice with FH. Most of the SE and BiG brands are money, and it's just personal preference which you choose. If they fit well and you're going to wear them, you chose correctly.

Same with the arcs; some prefer a cleaner look with as little visible branding as possible (this also makes the jeans somewhat easier to dress up, IMO), and others prefer to leave the jeans intact as the company made them.

I agree with you. Even if I don't like how certain arcs look, I just leave them on.

Out of curiousity, why is it that if the original poster had <20 posts and had an account made in the past few months people would have gotten their panties in a knot over the fact this was a new topic?

Pretty much. The one thing this guy did better than the other <20 post member people is that he just went out went by SF advice and bought denim instead of some newbie walking in asking to buy quality selvadge denim for $50 and then refusing to spend the $200-$300 that people here usually spend.

I'm a little confused as to why you are an SF member and know nothing about RRL...Don't you read RRL posts here to learn? I wouldn't expect that aspect to appeal to an SF-er.

Seriously, dude, you're thinking of RRL "low straights". RRL has many "straight leg" models which are classic and traditional high rise fits.

lemmywinks hit the nail on the head. When one comes here, to a forum that focuses on and supports high-end brands, posts a thread, and expects constructive advice for getting great jeans for $50, of course they're going to get torn apart. If I went to a car forum and asked for tips on a vehicle that does 0-60 in under 5 seconds and won't cost more than 20,000, I'd be in for a shitstorm too. By the way, jeans look good! Seems like you got the fit you were looking for, the Flatheads appear to fit super well through the thigh. Post-soak pics soon?

So I hot soaked the jeans in my bathtub for about an hour. Let them hang dry and this is how they turned out: I really love they way the fit turned out :love: I am definitely keeping the back pocket stitching, I really don't see the point of taking them out. Before I hot soaked the pants, I thought they were way too long and I was going to get them hemmed. But after they dried, I noticed that they shrank in length. I think I'll just keep them the way they are. The cuffs are kinda growing on me myke

What a bunch of snobs, it just reeks. Everybody has a budget in mind and come to SF for options. Price is not everything, otherwise you're no better than Diesel buying douchebags.

"Better than <20 post members". Patronizing much? He probably did better than you. I love when MC does denim, fit comes first everything else is a bonus.

That fit looks great. With those boots, I think it might look better if you let the legs stack rather than cuffing them, but either way, that cut fits you well.
