I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 797

1) If I'm a W32L34 in preshrunk Levi's 501s (the newer cut, which is snug but comfortable after some stretching out) what size should I buy in 501STF, W32L38 or W33L38? What about LVC 1947 501xx redline selvages, should I size these the same as the 501STF? 2) I was thinking of STF or LVC 47 501s for my first pair of raw denim, but are there better alternatives with a similar cut (not too tight or too loose in the seat and thighs, straight leg) at a decent price, maybe some Japanese brand? Thanks!

Any tips on how to not look like a perv while rummaging through the women's jeans section?

I just bought a pair of Flat Heads SE05BSP's and N&F Weird Guys (and waiting for the Iron Hearts 301S) hoping it'll give me a slim, low rise fit that works. Are there any jeans with like an 8 inch rise?
Instead of trying to get an obscenely small front rise, why not get something with a lower back rise? The Crates I'm trying to sell are the lowest rised jeans I've ever tried on (9in front, 11in back)

I learn something new every day. Any other jeans like that?

This could possibly be a very dumb question. But anyway, I purchase a pair of nudies TLJ. Some random wash with whiskers. My question is, Will intensive wear and abuse to these jeans still provide some nice honeycombs/whiskers/fades though they are not dry? Very dark indigo and havnt washed them yet. Should have bought the selvage ones, but i wasnt thinking.

What you're saying is that they're lightly pre-distressed?

The indigo will shift around a bit with hard wear, but really you'd be wanting to look at a raw pair which you can put through the works yourself.

First time poster here (obviously). Thinking about taking the dive and getting my first raw denim and I'm thinking about going with the Nudie Grim Tim.

http://shop.nudiejeans.com/system/se...id=884&rnum=11

Anybody have an opinion on these one way or the other? If you know of something in a similar price range and fit that you would recommend over these, I'd be glad to hear it.

Also, I'm trying to go for a similar fit as Levi's 514's (what I like to wear at the moment). I think I'm fairly close to that with this model?

Thanks in advance.

^ I'd probably go with Uniqlo MIJs (the S-002 cut seems to be pretty similar to 514s) for a third of the price, then spend the savings on beer and concert tickets. That's just me, though.

Nudie doesn't get a ton of love around here, partially because of the branding and partially because the denim, hardware, and construction (read as: crotch rips) don't necessarily stand up to the price point. They're kind of a halfway point between expensive mall jeans and nicer raw denim. (I actually have some Nudies that I rather like; I'm just offering what I've seen as the forum perspective.)

You might also look at some of the brands recommended in this thread (non-APC sub-$200 jeans): http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=157881

I want to say that 3Sixteen SL cut might work for you as well.

Unlikely. Washed jeans are treated to prevent color loss, which is what leads to fades. If any color loss occurs, it'll be universal rather than at contrast points and probably be due to washing rather than wear.

Is this actually true? Back when I used to buy pre-washed jeans as well as raw ones, I didn't find that the prewashed ones faded any slower than the raw ones. They faded with less contrast, but not any slower.

So someone here is going to wear woman's jeans? lol

Not necessarily, I know that Sugar Cane and Eternal pre-washed of olde aren't treated as such (I've owned pre-distressed from both companies) - this gives a bit of space for the indigo to move around and make the distressing look a little less artificial.

Eternal does the best pre-distressed jeans
