post #1261 of 21424
so, i've been doing my reasearch about rrl slim boot cuts, but still can't decide what size to get (yes, i have seen all the threads and still have no clue). i am a 33/34, but my main concern is the thigh and calf areas more than the waist (i have 19" calves). i wear a 32 in apc ns, but feel more comfortable in a 33, even though the waist is too big. any suggestions on sizing, i was thinking about 30 or 31...

yeah that's true..well..should i soak them before i start to wear them in or no?..sorry not sure if soaking does anything else but shrink the denim so yeah..

for all evisu jeans ...

do they fit true to size? a size 32 indeed fits an actual waist size of 32?

however, i read that a size 30 EVISU actually fits waist size 32 3/4.

can someone validate that???

Evisu No 1 denim is unsanforized and the tag matches the pre-shrink size of the jeans. In order to get the correct post-shrink size, you'd want to go with 2 sizes up.

No 2 and No 3 denim are sanforized so I don't think you have to worry about that.

I need a jean reccomendation:

I am 5' 9" 146lbs, with a 29'waist, and wear a 29X30 in the 527's.
I have switched from loose, baggy, light colored jeans to dark Levis 527 jeans.
I dont like straight cut or super slim jeans, and normally opt for the bootcut. I like the fit of the 527's everywhere except the baggy ass.
Can you make some recomendations on some quality jeans that would fit like the 527's with less material in the seat??? I would like to spend as little a possible, but realize quality jeans are 100-200$.
I live in NCali and am close enough to the bay area.

i'd like to take the plunge and get some nice japanese denim. I was really eyeing the flatheads because of their awesome fading, but I want to be sure of the fit first. I have some APC rescues that I love the fit of with a nice full leg(I have big thighs), and I wanted to know if there are any flathead models with similar cuts to the rescues. Or should I look into Samurais or SDA's instead? Thanks
post #1267 of 21424
^ the Flat Head F380 is a fuller cut jean. You could look into that and see what you think. Could also size up an F310 or 3001.

kind of a rookie question but I'm kind of a rookie so...

what's an alternative to the APC NS in terms of cut? I have the NS and like them but I'm looking to add another similar in fit but possibly less austere? I dunno actually what I want but i know I want something with a similar fit if not a *tiny* bit more relaxed.

I'm not opposed to spending more $$$ than the NS either if that helps.

I'm not into sizing down a bunch and trying to squeeze my huge ass into my jeans either. I'm 6'2" and around 210 so i think it looks ridiculous on me.

I've heard a bunch about 5ep's cuts being "slim but not skinny," yet the thighs look massive compared to other slim jeans. Does this give you weird birthing hips, or does it somehow maintain a slim profile despite the thunder thighs?

I like the ACNE mic a lot. It is a slim straight cut, but seems a little more forgiving then the NS, and there is not really any taper. The mic is not selvage, but the denim is very high quality and certainly holds it's own against APC.

Bonus points for using a 10 cent word like austere, although I'm not exactly sure what you mean...

You can just size down less on NS, or go true to size, to make it a little more relaxed. It has a highish rise anyways, so depending on how you wear it it's not necessarily a slim cut. If you don't SIZE DOWN 2 (tm), maybe consider giving them a wash/tumble dry to soften them. A slightly oversized stiff raw jean can look a little weird.

Plenty of repro jeans actually fit the description of "similar to NS but a bit more relaxed" (which I'll take to mean mid-to-high rise and a bit of a taper): Sugar Cane 1947/1945, Studio D'Artisan SD-101, Oni Red or Oni Blue, Samurai S0500 XX, etc.

EDIT: Also, denim P.I.M.P. Ande Whall has a new cut called the Miner coming out soon - mid/high rise, full cut top block, tapered leg. $245 shipped, which is basically the cheapest you'll pay for any of the stuff I just listed, but you're getting jeans handmade from Cone Mills selvage...

By austere i kind of meant lacking in unnecessary detail. they don't have pocket details or fancy this and that like on a lot of the samurai, SC, types which i now find myself oddly into.

Thanks for the suggestions on the samurai model. I've been having a hard time figuring them out for some reason.

Two questions:

Are the APC jeans lightweight? Otherwise what is some good lightweight raw denim (besides the rogan selvage mentioned above).

And; what are some decent light-wash jeans? Something for summer

They're a pretty dense, heavy pair of jeans. Brace yourself for ball sweat city if you're breaking them in during the summer.

Non-selvedge Rag & Bone is pretty light.

Really? I don't think they're too bad in the summer at all.

Then again I live in NY where the maximum temperature ever seems to hover around 85 degrees Fahrenheit. And I do sweat a lot on my back :\\
