However, I initially came looking for a pair of jeans that does NOT fade. Ideally a low to mid rise, tapered, dark indigo, $200 or less, with a fit suitable for a well built physique of average height and 32 waist. I would use this pair for more "dressy" situations, with fitted tucked in shirts and jackets. What brands would you recommend? (some brands that I saw mentioned so far in the discussions did not meet the price criteria). Alternatively, if there is a way to slow down the fading on APC or N&F, I would consider this as an option ... I know that I'm asking for the opposite of what most people in this thread go for, but hopefully someone can help
try talking to jay at blue owl workshop ... he is super cool and has a great alternative for you ~ $260 a pair. http://www.blueowl.us/scripts/psp/VB...il&SKU=7998100

Ok, so I already posted in the contest thread, but I'm trying to solicit some more opinions, so what the hell, I'll cross-post here:

I just got theseSExDBxSxS12s in the mail, and I can't tell whether I need to return and size down. They're kind of roomy in the waist pre-soak. I hate having to wear a belt to hold up my jeans, I'm not a fan of the diaper-ass effect, and I don't know whether I'm going to have those problems post-stretch.

Pictures are spoiler-ed because they're a) huge (sorry, trying to show detail) and b) of me photographing down the waistband of my jeans (sorry).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


The jeans are riding a high (well above where I'd wear them) in the fit pics because the denim is too stiff to drape naturally. Even at the point where I normally wear my jeans, though, these are kind of loose.

+1 to w123's suggestion. I was just about to recommend a Triple Works jean in Permanent Indigo. It's worth the extra $60 bucks. that's what, 12 days of skipping your daily latte?

This isn't something I'm super worried about but does anyone else experience it?

When I first get a pair of jeans the waist is tight so I can't sag them. I wear like that for 2-3 weeks and then I start to sag once the waist is wide enough. Sometimes if I don't want to sag I will use a belt and wear them up on the hips.

Only problem with this as you can imagine, is the wide area of honeycombs you get.

Is this a problem? Should I just ignore it? I've seen people here with huge honeycombs...

I say as long as they're real, from your efforts, then it's all good.

Great, thanks for the suggestion guys, I'll try to find them at a local shop to try them on.

Any tips & tricks for slowing down the fading of N&F or APC denim?

is throwing jeans in the dryer to shrink them bad for the denim?

Plenty at this point. I've decided I'm just gonna go with the 30s. I'm probably gonna wash these pretty frequently (since I'm planning to wear them pretty much every day I can), and it'd be kind of terrible if they were super-tight after every wash.

Not a problem, IMO. It only looks weird if the combs are way off, like, they're hitting at calf-level but don't come up to your actual knees. Also, Bayside High rulez.

More likely that it'll be bad for the dryer if they're pretty new (unless you don't mind having the inside of your dryer turn blue). I think some people have mentioned getting weird creases or lines that didn't go away from machine-drying as well, particularly when they didn't turn them inside-out. I probably wouldn't do it, particularly since any shrinkage you get in the waist will most likely stretch back out with wear anyway.

Which brand/cut would you guys consider the most "modern" when it comes to high-quality denim? So far I've gone through a pair of flat head BSPs and Skull 5010xx's, and neither was quite tapered enough for my liking. Somet's look promising, but I'm not sure about the low rise.

people here really like PBJ. I think that will be my next pair.

those BSP's are pretty tapered, you want more taper? I think SE has a collab with Imperial for an 18cm cut,

what's your criteria for "modern" low-rise and tapered? Take a look at the somet 008 too

Hello StyleForum,

I want jeans that stay looking new as long as possible.
Right now I been wearing 511 Levi Super Skinny Fit (very dark /rust denim),
Evisu Puma Skinny Fit Black Wax and Caen & Abel Straight Fit Black Wax jeans.
But for me those are all expensive jeans that I wear when going out.

What do you recommend for daily wear (or should I have some jeans that I rotate?).

Quick question: I wear my jeans cuffed, but am now realizing that they're now ripping/tearing along the cuff.

Is there any way to prevent this? Find it kinda annoying, because I don't want the jeans to fall apart before I can even get a fade into them.

Is the answer just to hem them and just not cuff anymore? Is there a good way to prevent the fraying once it's started?
