ultimate noob question for the the noob thread

I am thinking about getting a pair of Levi STFs (on sale for cheap, better jeans then the crap I wear etc). The website says to size up one in. when I buy them. Do you guys recommend that?

No - get them the same waist that you wear normal stuff in. They're pretty generous initially and then will shrink down to a decent fit. Either sit in the bath to get them just right, or soak them and then put them on while still damp to form to you.

So I finally got a pair of the SKs in the mail today from Urban Outfitters during their sale. I have a bit of a concern.

Overall the jeans are great and look nice. They fit well in the waist and they're a little bit thinner in the ankle than I expected but I think I could get used to it. My main concern is that the thighs are very tight. I ordered a size 30 which has an 11.25 inch thigh according to the site. Anyway, they're quite literally skin tight in the thighs. My main worry is that right now when I try them on they stretch so the thread on the outer seam is showing (i.e., the outer seam on the jeans).

I have a pair of Gap denim that stretched out and finally fit okay but the thread on that seam is pretty much always visible (at least along the upper leg area). I'm worried the same thing will happen with the SKs. Nothing to worry about or back they go (UO does offer a refund, so it's an option)?

The SK's are the skinniest RT offering so... Size up or return for the Stantons.

Should I ere on the side of caution with the length and then get them hemmed if they are too long? Or can make a pretty accurate judgment?

I'm looking for a pair of jeans that look similar to the Dry Bones Red-D slim. The fit picture on Self Edge's website is the look i'm going for - maybe not so much stacking though. I would love to buy those jeans, but those are pretty much at the $300 mark, which is a little too much for me :/ Can anyone recommend me something in the $200 range with a similar fit? (no APC or nudies please!) Thanks!

Whatever you do, make sure you account for them getting even shorter once you start walking in them and the creases set in.

it really depends your definition of "nice." if you talking about a jean still in production, imo, it would be a natural indigo jean like the oni shoai or the pure blue japan ai-100 or ai-200 simply because i love the cuts. but you also have the 45rpm jomon and a couple ai offerings from momotaro in their gold line. if your in japan and stop by the momotaro shop you can always get this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csPL3...eature=related. if you want to search out the best jeans in the world blue in green in nyc certainly has the best assortment of denim in the market today, at least in my opinion.

Would 3 inchs extra be to much?

p.s. This is referring to levi STF sizing if anyone else can answer
