Amazon has a lot of sizes and washes. They don't have your size in your wash, but hopefully you can find something else that works for you.

I realize that these are probably 12 oz, and some jeans are 14, 16, or 21, but what other advantages would they have? From what I understand, japanese denim is always well dyed, so these should be no exception, right?
Also, I cold soaked them tonight. If I want to get them tailored to a more slim cut, do I need to machine wash them first?
Pretty much what chrono said. Toyota and Lexus are both Japanese brands so what sets them apart in price? I think it'd help you out if you actually had a pair in your hands. It's much easier to feel the difference than just look at a couple of photos online.

Do context still do the 25% off for first time customers or did they stop that?
post #934 of 12663
I think it's now 25% off for everyone if you use the code "threads". Check the context thread though in the premium donators section.

Thanks guys, that makes sense. Does anyone know if I need to machine wash them before I get them taken in, or is cold soaking enough?

15% off for everyone now. No 25% coupon anymore.

How does the Levis 510 straight leg, made in Japan compare to APC NS?

Does anyone know of any mall stores that I can buy a skinny tie at? Basic ones that would be in most malls around America.

Not that I know of, but lots of thrift and vintage stores have plenty of them.

I've had a pair of Levis 503Bxx for about 6 months. The fit on them is extremely slim, I can fit into them but am not comfortable enough in them to wear them outside of my house. I bought them because they were only 2.98$. They are big E Selvage so I'd really would like to get them to fit somehow. In my limited experience cold soaking has made my jeans tighten some... so are there any techniques I can use to stretch these?

so I am assuming your technique is just to physically stretch the hell out of them while dry?
