can anyone recommend a raw/selvedge jean similar to APC Rescues? I would like them to have similar cut, quality and fading properties... but without the excessive stretching of the waist.
I liked my Rescues and ended up loving the straight leg jeans they have at Uniqlo. Cut is fairly similar, perhaps a little slimmer but I did pick them up in HK so it might just be regional. Rate of fading is about the same and the waist hasn't stretched nearly as much. Overall, less stretching, just enough to make it into a really nicely-fitting pair of jeans in my opinion.
How can I stretch out a pair of RRDS? I have a pair that I've been working on for 8 months now, they've been washed twice so far. I've been working in the arctic for the past month and the jeans keep getting tighter. I'm gaining a lot of weight in my legs from the job. They are starting to fit quite snug in the quads and upper block.
If I wash them again and then wear them while wet until they dry, will they stretch out?
What's the easiest way to freshen up some raw denim? I've got about 2 months wear on my pair and they're getting a bit of a musk.
turn 'em inside-out, lightly spray some fabreeze anti-bacterial around balls-ass-crotchal region, hang to dry where some air circulates. if they're real stanky, throw 'em in a ziplock and then in the freezer for day.
Sized down one in waist, so they were a touch tight but not APC-OMG-I-CAN'T-BUTTON-THIS-SHIT constricting.
They ended up making my thighs look all balloony (for some reason they reminded me of the Flat Head fit pics over at SelfEdge, sorry kiya!). I liked the calf area, not as fitted as my APC NS. Should I get them and hope the waist stretches for a more natural look or should I go true-to-size? Or maybe go KMW 2010s? Pics of me can be found by looking at my previous posts.
