Japanese Selvage Denim Jean Recommendations Please. First Time Buyer. Slim, Tapered.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I'm in the market for a new pair of jeans.

Please recommend me some of the top Japanese Selvedge Denim jean brands to check out.

I currently wear Nudie Slim Jim and like that slim, tapered fit.

I'm wanting something a little undiscovered and not likely to be common here in Australia.

Price isn't really a concern but obviously within reason.

Happy to get them proxied.


Thanks in advance!

Naked & Famous if you're on a budget. Probably the best brand for the <$200 price range. Then you can start looking at 3Sixteen or APC.

  Cheap and decent quality: Unbranded UB201 or UB101

 

15 oz japanese selvedge denim

 

 

Cheers

Thanks for the reply.

I'm not on a budget and was hoping for something different than the usual, common brands such as 3Sixteen, N&F, APC, Iron Heart, Flat Head etc.

Was interested in Kicking Mule until I read they were made in China.

C'mon, drop a list on me someone.

Any others?

This is supposedly very good when it comes to bang for the buck.
Will be my next denim purchase.

I'm currently still quite pleased with my Japan Blue 0701 which is also very nice within its price range.

My favourites are still the Sugarcane Sexsc02.
Should you decide on those, send me a PM. I know a place that sill has them.

Thanks for the reply Crat.

I've got too much Albam stuff already otherwise I'd definitely be keen to try those out! Most of their stuff is great quality.

Would prefer them to be made in Japan also.

I'll look into the Japan Blue range.

Don't think the cut of the Sugarcanes would suit me, but I'll look a bit further into those as well.

Cheers!

The canes' fit (sz 32) is actually similar to the 0701(sz31) in my experience.

I know you said Japanese but you also stated undiscovered. A good option would maybe be Stovall and Young. They are located in San Francisco, CA. Good price and have a change pocket that you can fit your whole cellphone into. www.stovallandyoung.com

Thanks for the suggestion but I'd like to stick with Japanese denim and made/cut in Japan at this stage.

Can anyone suggest some specific models, similar cut to the Slim Jim? - Not Thin Finn skinny, but good to rock with low-top sneakers (no cuff).

Cheers!

I'm liking the SD-106!

Got any fit pics or suggestions on sizing?

I'm 183cm, Size 30 waist.

Currently wearing 31/34 in Nudie Slim Jim, and a Size 30 in the Albam Taper Chino (if that helps).

Have never owned Unsanforized jeans before, and don't want them too skin-tight or too loose in the waist after washing/stretching.

Thanks for the input!
