I would err on the smaller side. I have a pair of Samba 85s in a 12 that fit me perfectly, and I am a perfect fit into a CP 43.

You did good, son. You did good.

Get the Naked and Famous. You will need to hem them for sure, as they are pretty long. But dont hem them too much, as they will fall more once broken in. Where did you try them on? If you come to Toronto ever there are a few places that carry them as well. They may have more of a selection.

I heard Montreal has more of a selection since the brand is from there. I can go there if needed.

I only tried the weird guy but I think I am going to try the slim guy next time.

Weirdguy is what I started out with. They are probably your best bet to transfer from a baggier cut like you have been wearing.

I PM'd you. Feel free to PM back with any questions.

People on here consider it a more "relaxed" fit, but most on here are skinny. I have a few of his reverse seam shirts and they are fitted and have a pit to pit measurement of 21 inches. The front hem is perfect, but the back is too long. Others on here have said the same thing about the back.

I found a few pair of NWT Levi's "Limited edition 1947" 501's with hidden rivets at a local discount/thrift store. I quickly grabbed them and looked for selvedge and just as quick set them back down when I found that they were not. I did notice a "single stitch" pattern on the inside of the rear pockets though/ Now I'm wondering if I should go back for them or at least to inspect them a little closer. Are these worth anything? Would it be worthwhile to try and flip them? There were also a couple pair of "engineered" Levi's (no selvedge or anything) but I don't see them bringing much return for?

If you really want to stay under $50 for jeans, and wear them daily without altrernating pairs, then yeah, expect much much less. But I know more people who are still hunting for the perfect under-$50 jeans, and will never find them. Ever. Period.

One recommendation I saw given to you is to venture into APC territory and try a pair of New Standards (slimmer fitting) or New Cures (closer to a traditional 501 cut). They're only $155, and at that price point, I'd say the ones I have are defintely worth it. This will give you a chance to experience a good cut, quality construction, amazing denim and the break-in process of raw jeans without venturing into the scary over $250 mark.


The other way to do it is to buy a few pairs of "under $50 jeans" and rotate them through. Depends on what you do, where you wear them, and what you do while wearing them.

What you end up with depends on your budget, willingness to try other brands, and how you wear them.

Disagree on the "... perfect under-$50 jeans, and will never find them. Ever. Period." Never speak in absolutes.

so i found my father's old wind-up watch while digging around a few days ago, it's definitely a cheap watch (~50 bucks 30 yrs ago maybe?) but it has aged beautifully, meaning that it's all scratched up and the white face is yellowed with some mold growing on the side. the brand is "transglobe," which i have never heard of before. anyway to get to the point, my father used this watch probably everyday for 15 years, one day he managed to get it magnetized while running an experiment, and then got later got it demagnetized. however, it still runs at least 10 minutes fast per day. anyone have an idea as to how much it would cost to get it fixed?

Is there a thread already out there to throw up pics and links to random brands/items (clothing wise) that I find interesting, rather than starting a new thread for each? I can't think of any off the top of my head.

My new Band shirt size M that I got from B&S has a 16.5" neck (it's a gingham F-body). WTF, is this normal? Everything fits great but the neck, I can't imagine someone fitting both the neck and the shirt.
