I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 906

haha thanks. I guess it didn't occur to me that you could make denim "not raw" by washing it.

Sulfur-dyed denim tends to hold in color pretty long. You could look into hank-dyed stuff if you want something really long lasting too. Also Kuroki's denim is pretty tough everywhere it's implemented.

I have a few quick yes or no questions I tried searching but I'm still a little lost I hope you don't mind.

1. For a decent stack do you need a pair of raw denim jeans?

2. I'm trying to wear some mid-top sneakers but I'm absolutely hating the way my denim falls on it. They're 32 inseam (I'm probably 30 inseam for no break) and it just looks like a little tree at the bottom and its pushing the denim up at like the knee to make it look like my knees go inwards. I swear I don't feel like this happens when I wear simple low top sneakers. If I bought denim in like a 34 or 36 inseam/not so skinnny would this help my silhouette?

I'm trying to get a stack with my sneakers like this (I'm sorry for using a celebrity pic the sneakers are similar is all): http://www.upscalehype.com/wp-conten...do-bloom11.jpg

3. I know Mr. Bloom up there is probably wearing Dior Homme or something but would Uniqlo Japanese Denim be a good start to finding a good stack? I'm going to be shopping in NYC this weekend any stores I should hit for relatively cheap/starter pairs?

Thanks in advance guys.

The denim doesn't need to be raw, but it needs to be reasonably stiff. In my experience, the stacks get really floppy and messy when the denim has been overtly distressed or washed too many times.

This is happening because your leg opening is too small for the type of shoe you are wearing. The solution is to get a pair of jeans with a bigger leg opening for your high tops, or stick to the low tops for better looking stacks.

Not too familiar with Uniqlo's fits and dimensions. Urban Outfitters has some cheap/starter raw selvage denim like bdg and Unbranded.

I like the looks of Nudie Slim Jim Indigo Glaciers but am unsure of sizing. There are no Nudie stockists here so I can't try them on, so when I order, it will be online. New to denim and am finding it quite bewildering to get the info I want without spending hours than I already have looking through various fora for sizing. I only have one pair of jeans at the mo to use as a reference - Lee L2 Lo Slims in 34 waist (I don't know the inseam - maybe 34?) They are far too loose for me and according to tape measure are actually 36. They stretched out quite a bit or I lost weight. When I pinch the waist of the jeans, they are just a tad over 2" excess. More slung on my hips, not high on the waist. I am 180cm in height. Around 78Kgs. Prefs. Leg length without shoes. The hems are slightly under the hem of my foot. Don't want mega tight. The model dude on Cultizm is what I would consider just right. Plan on rocking them with white Vans old skool Barbee re-ishs and Redwing Iron ranger mules. Any advice gratefully accepted.

What is the best beginner (and not to expensive) raw selvage denim to start with? I want something straight and kinda skinny.

For the price range (around $80 retail), Unbranded is probably the best beginner raw selvage denim around. One of their cuts is straight and skinny, from what I've been told.

i would agree with commodore if you after a raw jean under $100. if you can up to $200 you will have at least a half dozen really nice alternatives.

I have a pair of SC1966 that I love. They're currently in that sweet spot of broken-in-ness, but I'm starting to think about my next pair. I'm hoping for something a bit less baggy (but not tight) and a slight taper below the knees. Any recs? I was thinking about PBJs. Can anyone recommend a certain cut?

pbj has a new 011 that is really tapered below the knees that might work if you have skinny legs, otherwise, the slim/straight cuts would be best. also check out the fullcount 1108 and momotaro 0701 or 0705 cuts. im sure there are many others ... these just come to mind.

I have a pair of Slim Jims that I bought ~1 month ago. I wear them 2x a week, on my days off from work, and they have yet to stretch. Off the rack, they fit smaller than other brands I've worn in the past. I've been told to size down 1 size with Nudie so that's what I did. A sz 30 usually fits me fine, but I sized down to a 30 for the Nudie as 31 was a perfect fit as is. I was never big into denim, and still isn't really. These are my first pair of dry jeans.

What do you guys think of this fitment (EP Hoyt)?




My main concern is that squatting causes a little bit of plumber's crack. Is that to be expected?
