cold/warm soak inside out, then hang til half-dry__ starch backside while still damp, turn rght side out & repeat... don't overdo. btw, i use "Niagara" heavy starch & only on the laps [whiskers] & back knees [combs] areas.

Uniqlo T-000 jeans. Can I get some info on this? 1. Where can I buy them (are they discontinued?) 2. I know some are raw, but for those which aren't, what kind of quality are they (maybe in comparison to levis) 3. Anything else you could add Thanks

I am looking to buy my first raw selvedged jeans.
How does the Urbanoutfitter's Indigo Skinny Selvedge compare to Uniqlo's Indigo Selvedge?
I can either buy the UO jean now or wait until December to check out the Uniqlo.
Btw how much would the Uniqlo jeans cost?

Thank you!

1. Uniqlo or ebay.
2. About what you'd expect for the price.

1. The fit is... skinnier.
2. Typically less than UO.

PBJ 007 or Momotaro x Context 0701MCXX From the numbers it looks like similar fit except that the PBJs are straight from the knee down. Thoughts?

The elitist in me would pick Momotaro every time.

For me, I sized down as much as I did because of how big PBJs had run for me in the past. I had a pair of tagged 34 XX-013s that never got smaller than 36" in the waist, and a tagged 32 pair of the T5-002s (XX-005 cut) came with a 35"waist raw and never shrunk below 34" for me. So I figured that a 32 in the XX-007s would be the right size, but they came a lot smaller than I was expecting.

Is this because of the exclusivity of the collab or a remark on Momotaro in general?

PBJ for sure.
That collab is iffy for me.

Let's just say that I'm complete jeans noob. I got one from COS, a selvedge jeans that fits good, looks good and affordable, about 105 USD. Now I am in for second pair of jeans. For that price (100-150 USD) I think I could do better with some research. So experts here please show me the light. I like indigo color so I can wear semi-formal and all out casual. Fit is slim, probably something like APC new standard. Any recommend brands? Diesel, APC, Replay how are they? That's all I know really! Thanks! I live in the UK btw, if that helps. Jeans prices here seems to be really expensive.

Both. Don't know why it's an "iffy" collab since people in general have liked Momotaro. Only thing that would stop me from Momotaro is the price.

from the [raw] measurements on both models you mentioned, the waist were more than 3 inches bigger than tagged__ as compared to only 2" on the 007 raws. the denim used on those models are different, too__ precentage of shrinkage may also differ.

btw, these is the current fit of the 007s__ TTS @W33. as i mentioned, a possible size down is warranted if aiming for a slimmer fit. but, personally, i prefer a more "comfort" fit.

FML. So do you mean if i normally wear 28's 29's in APC/Dior, should I go up to a 30?

Or does it mean if i'm at 30" waist/32" hip, that I should size up to a 31?

Hi guys, jean noob here. I'd like to buy a couple new pairs of jeans and I have about $75 per pair to spend. I love the dark look of raw jeans, but I can't deal with the commitment. Is Levi's the best route for non-raw jeans in my price range? Also, how skinny are 511's? Should they be out of the question? 514's look a little baggy for my taste.

You should never compare sizing with APC, for one thing, since they're the most fucked up sizing wise
