I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 791

post #11851 of 20889
I'm 6'4 and about 180 (waist is 34-35). However, I'm a cyclist and have large legs. I also have an artificial leg, which has a wider calf then my real leg. So I'm looking to buy my first 'real' pair of jeans. I've done well with 501's in the past, but I'd like something a little nicer. I don't need to drop $300 on my first pair, but I'd like to get started along that path. Any suggestions on brands that have a nice cut for a thin guy with relatively big legs?
post #11852 of 20889
I'm 6'-0", 165lbs, skinny and looking for some normal looking jeans that look good with tucked in shirts (no sagging and no hipster tights). I've been through a couple 501 STFs, and hate them - WAY too much room in the seat. I have long legs, so high rises end up looking goofy. Any recommendations for guys without asses for cheap (under $200) with no or very minimal designs on the back pockets? My list is at APC NS, N&F slim guy, and Unbranded. Every thread seems to have someone say "fits like 501s" or has 90% of the pictures sagging which makes it kind of hard to judge. I have information overload.

If you search, there's a thread for jeans for guys with big legs. Honestly, though, if you can fit into 501s then there are tons of brands that fit similarly but are much nicer (Ironheart, Studio D'Artisan, Spurr Classic, Samurai, Kicking Mule Workshop (KMW), etc.) There are affiliates up above.

I'd go over the threads with denim fit pics and figure out what works for you. If you're tucking, you're looking at a 10+" rise (based on a 32) so keep that in mind if you're looking at measurements.

Each fades differently!
as for rate of fade from fastest to slowest__ 660 > 811 > 103.
as for better fades__ aside from what's already mentioned, that's entirely up to you.
as for factors to consider__ getting the right fit/cut/sizing for you & lenght+intensity+frequency of wear you are willing to invest in them.

masshi, the argument you'll hear here about getting jeans tailored is that, unless you take it to one of those jeans places in NYC that get mentioned sometimes here, places i can't remember the name of right now, you'll be straying from the quality construction of the jeans as well as the original intent of the jeans.

these jeans are created on vintage equipment with the highest of care, and a tailor is in a cost-cutting, "get it done fast" business that doesn't take the time your jeans got when being made. You will be straying from the strong quality construction of the jean. Jeans, in the top block, are a complicated bunch of connected parts, and slimming that down might mean taking it all apart, and you can't guarantee that your tailor is gonna make it look like it did in terms of stitching, details, and construction when they're finished.

Also, jeans like the ones from Self Edge are focused around the ideal of reproductions of classic jeans, and having a tailor get involved, with their modern equipment means breaking away from the reproduction ideal.

If you care about that stuff, well, you sound you belong on SF. If you don't care about that stuff, risk using your tailor.

As to your fit, the top block on those looks way too large, yes, including the waist, and yet is somehow riding all up your ass at the same time. though you don't look like you have the buttons actually buttoned up, i doubt that changes much. the legs looks great, btw, except for the goofy standing-on-the-hems bit. You are, indeed, very, very skinny.

I'd say sell 'em on B&S and get something else.

So I am looking for some new jeans and need some suggestions; The problem is, I am not skinny so finding a jean that fits is kind of hard.

I am 5' 10" 210lbs, my waist sits right at 38 with a tape measure, my thighs are 25.5. For the past year and a half or so I have been using the selvedge rigids from Gap in a 38 and they have been working great for me actually. I wore them without a soak or wash up until last month; after the wash they were a little tight but they loosened up pretty fast.
The measurements of the jeans, taken on the ground, waist is 19.5, and the thighs are 12.

I was looking into APCs in either New Standard or Rescue, Naked and Famous (probably in weirdguy?), or waiting for the Artist Denim straight or regular fits; However, I am open to suggestions with one caveat though; I would like to keep the price under or as close to $150 as possible..

I also have no idea based on my measurements how I should size those jeans, and if I should soak before wearing.
Any help is appreciated.

You'd probably fair better in the Rescues, maybe a 36? Otherwise, you might be able to swing something around sale time or on ebay because of the size. No need to soak since they're already sanforized.

Thank you for the quick reply, I am thinking my best bet is to go try them on in a store.. I was thinking of heading to the Barney's Co-op since they stock APC but it seems they only have the NS.. So I am going to have to do some more searching. But you think their 36 will fit?

Search for APC measurements but yes.
post #11860 of 20889
Planning on getting my first pair of raw denim this week and currently debating between APC New Standards and Rescues. I'm a big dude (6-3, 220ish, 36" waist--size 34 or 35) and so I'm somewhat hesitant about going with the NS given how narrow the knee and leg opening measurements are. My current favorite pair of jeans measure approx 12.5" at the thigh, 9.75" at the knee and 9" at the opening, and I could handle something a bit snugger, but I'm not sure if the 8" leg opening will be too small on the NS. I'm going to try on the NS, but don't have access to the Rescue to try on. Can anyone offer up advice on which might work best with my frame?

Rescues tend to be for bigger dudes. If you decide that you prefer the legs to be a bit slimmer, you could always tailor them after the fact since bringing in the hem is usually something fairly easy and minor. But search for photos of both fits and you can get a better idea.

Need some advice guys. I have a pair of Dior MIJ 21cm, and am looking for a pair of Sammies that are kinda similar in fit. Which would be closer? True to size 710xx or one sized down So500xx ? Cheers
post #11863 of 20889

I used to.. but grew tired of my balls getting sweaty..

If I were going to buy two pairs of jeans from Self Edge, which two brands and models would you recommend? I thought I did my research but seriously after reading over 10 threads and hundreds of posts, my head is spinning. I feel as if I'm less sure now of what I want or even of what I know. (its one of those the more you learn, the less you know?)

I just want a nice slim fit. Something similar to dior 19cm/17.5cm's or APC PS/NC's.

Please, just name me two. Thanks.
