.. I'm a huge newb on the quality difference of RAW denim and needed the suggestions very badly. Thank you and I'll take a good look into them I think most of those brands you suggested Icon are in the blueingreensoho.com website. (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:http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28

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.
