Interesting eye opener. The question is when did they switch to Turkish denim or was it Turkish from day one.

The new Wrangler Blue Bells (no longer made by Edwin) use Turkish denim as well...cheaper, easier customisation of fabric, etc etc....

Too much stuff to respond to at one time, I wasn't able to keep track of what I was responding to without separating it. All the same, I'll try to keep things more consolidated in the future.

They've used Japanese denim (I think it was called the inside-out model) before but I think the confusion is that people think that they went entirely Japanese. I remember talking to Kiya about it and iirc he was pretty adamant that they've been Turkish from day one. Then again, I've heard other people in the industry mention other non-Japanese sources. As I said before, it's a moot point since the denim has never been anything to write home about and APC has never tried to push their jeans as being "nice."

Just want to thank commodore for always being willing to respond to anything. I appreciate you sharing your denim-knowledge with the rest of us. Also - debating on a new pair of raws from BiG. Looking for only knee jerk reactions here - Eternals or PBJs?

You're welcome. I was helped out a lot by the knowledge of others when I started getting into denim, so I'm happy to pass my knowledge on to others who are starting now.

For the BiG raws, it really depends on what kind of fit you want. If you want something that fits slim, go with either the PBJ XX-005 or XX-011 or some variation of those two cuts. If you want something that fits really loose, go with the PBJ XX-003 or some variation of that model. If you want something that fits in between, go with the Eternals.

hey tino, thats a tough call. eternals take on a very unique fading characteristic (see pic) and make a great fitting jean whereas pbjs offer a couple different fits and a variety of different dyeing techniques. personally, i would do both eternal 811s ^ yes, they are that awesome!

Whatever123 - if you want to help fund the purchase, I'd be more than willing to pick up both.

Too - have you found any decent denim offerings in SLC? I've never really found anything worthwhile. Admittedly, I'm doing school at the Y so I'm not up there all the time. Any leads I can check out? I'd love to try stuff on rather than just e-shopping.

dude, we live in a clothing wasteland! BUT, blue in green is only a day or two away in shipping. i mean, aside from the mainstream there really isnt much here. do you live down in provo? and i would fund your purchase but im already dealing with my addiction edit: we have to go to vegas 2-3 times a year to shop for the girl, but aside from that 98% of my shopping is done on-line. i wish we had something like a blue owl workshop, context, or shops along those lines but as of now we really dont.

What you guys lack in retailers you make up for in mountains. You can still buy from BiG or SE; I'm still trying to find a way to order a day of snowboarding in a foot of fresh powder online...

So bloody true. Being originally from Vegas, I'm able to get back down there a bit more often to visit the parental units and snag things here and there. But even Vegas doesn't seem to have the offerings that SF does (at least as per my personal style). Freaking Ed Hardy and True Religion-land.

I need to exploit the mountains more.

Your Eternals look nice, Whatever.
