I have no idea how to size these, however. I think my true waist is about a 30 (at least, I wear a 30 Levi's 501 non-STF that fit well). I've heard that the RRL jeans measure a lot bigger than the tag size, like a 28 measures as a 32.

RRL jeans are sanforized, right? So they won't shrink a whole lot. Does that mean I need to size down aggressively and can't expect them to snug up much after soaking?

It would be kind of nice to go to a brick and mortar store where I could try these on first, but I've been having trouble tracking down any stores near Atlanta that carry them.

Hello to everybody.

I am thinking in ordering a pair of edwin organic cotton jeans, but I am not sure about this material, I have never wear jeans made of organic cotton. What´s the difference with regular cotton? any pros and cons? is this a better option or is better to stick with non organic?

Thanks a lot for your help amd best regards

Also, to be fair, Uniqlo denim is not the most amazing stuff in the world. You would probably have fewer problems with something less expensive. Obviously that's probably not what you're looking for, which is cool. The Uniqlo stuff is just going to take a bit more work, I'd imagine.

You mean more expensive? I think I'll get these hemmed a bit, which will help with the stacking. I think the stacking looks especially weird because the leg is a bit wide at the bottom (or at least not tapered).

stiching is less of an issue for me unless it's some obnoxious ed hardy sparkly crap all over it. I think the thing for me is to just try on some IH's and maybe some samurai's and see what looks/feels best.

Heed these words!! (you seem to know your shit, mikecch. Welcome aboard)

Thanks for the welcome mlyngard

I think the Samurai detailing to be superb - I agree that the Japanese detailing is one of their strengths.

I just find the hardware on the standard models a bit less robust than I would like (the metals are a bit on the thin side for some hidden rivets and main buttons - making them very light and hollow), but there's nothing wrong with them, only that other Japanese brands offer better in the same price range ( I'm a knife collector too, so I obsess over metals a bit :P).
I haven't owned any post 2009 Samurai's though...

Don't think there's much of a difference. The real draw, I think, is you're being the educated consumer. If you're interested, should check my sale thread, as I have a pair of jeans from Edun which has the same sort of grassroots philosophies etc. /shameless plug.

Hello, I changed my ming and would like to try APC new standard for the first time, I am size 30 normally So I guess 29 should be the size, Do they stretch that much like I heard? should I get down two sizes?

Thanks a lor for your help

Yeah, just try them on. IH needs to be felt to be believed. Their 21oz denim is surprisingly soft--not nearly as stiff as many raw denim that weigh in at 16oz or less. Unless its a blistering day, it feels real good.

I just bought these RRL Raw jeans and they look a little too tight around the calf. Can I expect them to stretch around the calf area and if so is there anything I can do to speed up the process?

post #11155 of 20249
im looking at either the 301s or se05bsp, both in 28 kind of leaning toward the 301s because the cut is slimmer anyone have experiences/sizing advice for either of these?

Yes they stretch, size down two unless you like a baggy fit. Sizing down two will be snug at first but should not be all that uncomfortable after a few days of wear.

I believe stretching in the calf area is difficult to achieve. Unless you can live with the current fit, I would consider finding a different cut.

Yo. Question. I'm considering buying a pair of Levi's 501 (STF). However, as I was looking through the 'Levi's 501xx New Fit,' I noticed that the 'slim cut' (which appears straight to me) would not exactly suit the likes of my skinny legs. This revelation prompts even more sorting through the thread's pages, where I find a man wearing a nice looking pair of tailored 501s. Apparently he went to a tailor to purchase a modification that would slim the legs down; this modification occurred successfully. Now, I'm wondering if I can do the same thing, and possibly even more. That is, if I purchase the skills of a tailor. Can all tailors decrease the rise of a jean, and slim the legs? Or should I scrap the whole idea and buy a pair of jeans better suited to my skinny-ness? Or should I just sit in the bathtub for a few hours? I really want these jeans, as they're basically a cheaper alternative to APCs, sans the fit that I desire.

Just buy 510 or 514 raws (I think those are the model numbers, I don't know Levis )

Do you think I could 'shrink' them to fit me in a 65% slim, 35% skinny fashion?
