I'm pretty partial to the BKE Derek jeans myself and you can manage to get them for $50 online. Highest price in store for Buckle jeans is around $200 or so.

Just can't beat them for the price. Very comfortable and make you look like you know jeans.

They also have very good fades, pocket designs and such.

Extra because it took my question off the most recent page.

Throwing up in my mouth as we speak.

So for the 1947s, would it be best to go for 32 or 33?
If you could post your actual measurements it would help. LVC sizing is traditionally all over the place (see also: The Official LVC Thread) but at first guess I'd say the 32 in the '47. More information though is required for a better guess.

Are MiI usually less expensive than MiJ? What is the difference between the two?
post #11076 of 20759
MiI is generally a bit less (though it isn't always the case that a MiJ jean has a corresponding MiI jean) but the quality is lower. The denim is a bit thinner and stretches more and sizing tends to fluctuate more

How do I tell one from the other? Is there usually a sign or branding? I am thinking of adding at least one nice denim in my closet and Diors might just be it and if I were to own only one, I'd prefer to get the better one.

Comparing raws, you just have to look at the care tag and it'll say Made in Japan or Made in Italy. The Italian ones also fade faster, iirc.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

Looking for a jean recommendation: What I Need from my denim: Rise: 11-12 inches Thigh: around 12 inches across True waist: 36 but I like pants to fit a bit tight in the waist. My trousers are 35 and my jeans stretch comfortably to 35. (501 STF's) Inseam: 35 (i like to roll them up a bit) Leg opening: around 8" Overall fit: Something fairly slim, like Tom Ford's jeans. Budget: $350 Misc: No hugely obvious branding. I'm liking APC New Standards but the rise is too low. I intend to wear these with pretty much anything from RM Williams boots to chucks. I'd prefer a plain or non-descript back pocket stitching but its not a deal breaker. Looking for raw indigo selvedge, not a fan of pre-distressed stuff. Prefer full cotton denim as opposed to having a bit of elastane in. Thanks guys!!

Although the measurements do not meet your specifications this is a slim fit jean with the higher rise that you desire.

Have you tried on jeans with these measurements? I wear a 33- 34 and have trouble fitting into a 12" thigh. It appears you are looking for a very narrow thigh and leg opening for a 36 waist jean, even some slim cut jeans do not measure that narrow.

Because most jeans jump from waist size 34 to 36 that probably makes it more difficult to find a good fit.

newbie question: are levi's "coated rigid" raw? or just overdyed? will they shrink?
post #11085 of 20759
just picked up some PBJs fro BIG. Just did a warm soak and the length is perfect. The waist feels perfect now but if it stretches much they will be too big..... so can i hot soak just the waist area to shrink it down to account for stretching?
