Are RRL low straights one wash? I want to adjust the length but don't know if there will be any shrinkage if i were to soak/wash them whenever it is i plan on doing that.
Yes and not much. I don't have a habit of presoaking sanforized jeans and I've never had any dramatic changes in inseam after the first wash. Sanforized jeans can shrink 3-5% so you might want to give yourself a little room if you hem them just in case.
I recently bought a pair of Gap's selvedge denim and now I'm hooked and looking to get some "real" denim. I would like to keep the purchase below $200.
The Gap authentic fit is a very good fit on me, perhaps a little tight in the thighs. I'm 5'10", 165 but have 23" thighs so I can't go for anything too skinny. I bought the jeans in a 30/32 and it fits pretty well, especially the length.
I'm looking for a raw selvedge with an inseam of around the Gap's. They could be a little thinner in the lower leg but I think all in all the fit on these is nice, I just want something that's higher quality.
TBH, the APC push really started about two or three years ago when there wasn't anything else comparable at that price range. While the cut works for a lot of people, it's an outdated recommendation for people who want "good" denim below $200.
@ defan, how about Rogue Territory or Left Field? Those both seem like good sub-$200 options that are going to be more interesting than APC or Naked & Famous, and it seems like there could be more of both on the forum.

Thanks for the info, I'll check out the thread. I am definitely looking for something a little more interesting.
I have a pair of white NDG denim and I need some basic information about taking care of them. How should I was them? Should I treat them like Indigo Raw Denim or do I need to use a specific product / method etc. What products does everyone use?
For reals, though, I was just looking at their stuff, and it looks like they have a straight leg, a slimmed-down '47 cut, and a skinny cut (which was actually the one I liked), but I utterly failed to see anything they made that was stretchy and studded with rhinestones.
