These are goddamn amazing, the fit and especially the fading: http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=1606 to http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=2022. I could use a pair of new jeans, however, I cannot shell out the $320 at the moment. Any suggestions for a similar fitting more affordable altrernative?

Also, I have a pair of indigo wash Nudie jeans and they are getting a little dirty. They are a few months old but I haven't washed them yet.

Protocol?

TIA

Just bought some Grim Tim Ocean Indigo Jeans to go with my Dry Selvedge GT. Best jeans I've had other than some KMW.

(PS it was your link that got me interested into those Samurai's haha). Are there any other respectable websites to try and find these jeans from besides the blueingreenoho.com because those 660 Warehouse ones were not in there.

Thank you again!

Blue in Green is the only US retailer for Warehouse, and they do have the 660, look here:

Larger sizes that fit more loosely on the top don't taper enough for my liking. I don't even have big thighs or anything, though I might by SF standards. Why the hell are calves so hard to grow?

Are there any mid-range denim brands that offer the type of cut I want? That is, more tapered. I don't really want to specify exact measurements but basically like NC/PS but with slightly wider thighs. Alternatively I could try to find a way to stretch these out, I guess I could fill two pillowcases with beans or something...

Try the Naked & Famous Weird Guy cut, that might fit what you are looking for.

If you want your jeans to last for "years to come", I would go ahead and do the soak now. The more you soak and wash, the less contrast you will get with your fades, but washing regularly does prolong the life of the jeans, so it is a trade-off that you have to decide on.

Debating on a new pair to pick up in the future, and have been being more and more intrigued by the various slim-straights offered by Left Field. Haven't heard too much about this brand recently, but the dude's pair on DenimDebate are really appealing to me. I'm currently working between a pair of PBJ xx007s as well asa pair of LVC 47's. Anyone with sizing or wear experience, good or bad?

i have owned a pair before. good stuff. he uses cone denim and adds some great details (larger coin pocket, nice pocket liners, great patch, etc.). jay at blue owl workshop has some of there better cuts. i would start there if you want a pair of lfs.

I'm looking for a slim, light wash to wear during the summer. I'm having a real hard time finding a wash that I really like though so all suggestions are welcome. The cut could be similar to 511s, if that's any help.

did this hold true after stretch? I wear size 30 511s (the 100% cotton ones, I can fit into 29 for the stretch ones).
