Helmut Lang- the dry clean only label sucks, but they can be definitely worn a few times before heading to the cleaners. HLs just look classic...and a bit more dressy than standard Levis.
Unless they're black, you can safely ignore the dry-clean label and just wash them regularly. I saw that on a pair of my wife's HL jeans, after they had been washed a few times, and laughed. As for me, I find myself wearing less expensive jeans from Sisley and Zara, mostly. But truth be told I favour moleskins or other kinds of casual trousers over jeans these days. Peace, JG

Welcome back Joe. Where've you been??

the dry clean only label on helmut lang jeans should only be religiously observed if they are the raw denim jeans, which will lose their finish and shrink a whole size if you wash them (in theory you could buy one size up and hope they shrink appropriately); otherwise, all other helmut lang jeans can be washed you can try dryel at home on the dry clean only ones, i've have good success with that as well

It's nice to be back. As for what I've been doing, hmmm...getting married, establishing a new career, spending far too much time dealing with car problems.... And not wearing jeans very much. Peace, JG

Sounds like good excuses to me...

Does anyone make a nice vintage wash of some sort that is NOT slender and low waisted? Some guys' legs are too short and stocky to wear them well. I'm not really concerned about price or cache. Just looking for a good looking jean for my guy that's NOT a Levi 501.

I have had good luck with all 3 pairs of my Zegna jeans, two of which are the herringbone, 6oz models.

Talk about thread resurrection.. Diesel Kuratt are pretty roomy. They are a straight leg (not tapered like 501). I think Edwin jeans are pretty roomy as well, and they are high rise. They have some great washes and the denim quality is superlative.

J. Lindeberg jeans are slim, despite what anyone else may have said. Lindeberg stuff is often outlandish, but cut very well usually. Unfortunately, quality isn't really top-notch. My favorite aspect about Lindeberg is that they cut trousers the same way, slim, and with a boot-cut/flare. Dan

AG "symbol" jeans are a medium rise and medium-full leg. I almost bought a pair but couldn't bring myself to plunk down $185.
