P.S. I am having trouble with the free shipping promo on Levis. I am getting the 15% off the jeans but not the free shipping. Anyone know how to fix it.

Where are you finding Levi's STFs with such a generous inseam? I've been trying to find some Rigid Verdes in size 29 x 36 with no luck.

And I'd say get the smaller size if you want to be able to wear them without a belt.

Levis.com is the only place I have been able to find them. Though Macy's told me a store about 25 miles out had the 32-38

Thoughts appreciated.

Blue in Green will make every attempt to color-match the existing thread when you have them chainstitch hem your jeans. I've never, ever been disappointed.

What do?

When you hot soak jeans, the inseam tends to shrink more than the waist, so the only thing that you can really do is to stretch the inseam back out after shrinking if you don't want to lose too much length there. I don't think it works all that well, but it's your only option other than selling the jeans and getting a longer pair.

Any jean that is considered a regular (not slim) straight cut will be looser around the thighs and calves. For specific recommendations, what price range are you looking to spend in?

Most higher end brands tend to veer towards heavier denim, so for a lighter weight pair of jeans, you may want to look at a lower end brand like Gap or BDG.

For light denim (12 to 13 oz) I could recommend Sugar Cane's rainbow jeans in their Satobiki line, and I have heard good things about their Californian collaboration with Mister Freedom. I also really like Edwin's Vintage Collection jeans for Summer, a light denim which has lots of character and great details.

i would look at the pure blue japan xx 006/008. they are a 13.5 oz medium dye but feel a little lighter then this. a great jean for warm summers. they look really great in person but fade extremely well. this photo was taken from the pbj site and these are the 008s (006 uses the same denim but is a little different fit).

I just bought my first pair of selvedge jeans - anything I should think of wearing them initially? Soak them before putting them on? Soak them, and put them on wet? Hot water or cold water?

It all depends on if your jeans are sanforized or not. If sanforized, just wear them. If not, soak prior to wear.

If you don't know if your pair is sanforized or not, drop some info on the jeans here and we will help you out.

Thank you for the response! EPaulet Smiths - according to description they are Sanforized. I'll probably end up wanting to have them taken up a little, and potentially slightly tapered. Is it advisable to do that straight away or should I wear them for a bit first?

Hello.

I'm a former bodybuilder and current powerlifter who likes fashion a fair deal. I'm looking for some quality jeans of a skinnier variety, and have been researching APC's and Nudies.

The problem is, my legs are MUCH bigger than the average person. My measurements are:

Waist: 36.25 inches
Thigh, circumference: 25.75 inches
Knee, circumference: 16 inches
Pant Length (dress pants, not jeans): 36.5 inches
Pants Hip (around widest part of butt): 42.25 inches.

Can anyone advise as to what style or fit may both fit me and give me the desired look? Don't say it can't be done because I have some Levi's 511's or 514's (don't remember) that fit very well, among many others. Just looking for some raw/selvedge. Thanks!
