That depends. Do you prefer driving a Kia for the price of a Kia or a Porche for the price of a Kia? Raw Rigid isn't an RRL model. If you don't want something slim, RRL has several cuts (buckleback, straight fit, etc.) that would work.

Hmm I guess I meant just "rigid". I'm guessing APC would stretch more, but the RRLs would still stretch a bit?

Yeah, about an inch or two, like most other denim. If you're worried about the thighs, why not go to a Rescue for APC or Straight for RRL? You're buying APC for the fit. That isn't to say that other jeans don't fit as well, it's just a fairly universal fit. But beyond that, the denim and construction is average at best. Compare that to RRL which uses really great Japanese denim, is made in the US, and is solidly constructed. I'm fairly biased, however, because I never plan on purchasing a pair of APCs. For that price, I'd go Lee, LVC, or something along the lines of Rogue Territory.

so what's the sizing like for RRL? do you need to size down or anything?

It's stupidly random. Even the same model from season to season varies in terms of sizing. I've seen as much as 6" beyond tagged size on the waist (older ones apparently), and less on the newer ones.

Near impossible. Best advice is find an ebay seller who takes returns. I find they can run almost TTS to 4 inches bigger. I think the RRLjeans on ebay are one of the best deals in the jean world. Very high quality for under 150 dollars

I don't think it's as ridiculous as it has been in the past (raise your hands here people who've actually dealt with the older models...no? Ok, let's stop talking about them like they're still floating out there today.)

The low straight, for example, has been pretty consistent over the years. You need to size down one or two. I went the latter and they fit perfectly after a couple of hours.

The Slim Fit is where you'll find your issues because the washed versions tend to not be as big in the waist as raws. You'll still need to size down one or two but you need to watch the thighs because it is a slim cut. While I could have sized down two in the waist, I think the thighs would have been painted on me.

hi all..
have a pair of dior 19 raw blue denim. i've worn them around 50 times, and they've stetched out considerably..especially the waist and seat..

i have yet to soak them or wash them. just wondering the best way to bring them down to the size of when i bough them? cold soak? cold soak wearing them? or wash?..
i've read so many different things on here but still confused over something quite basic to many of you, so just hoping for some help..

oh, and same question for dior 19 black raws, worn over 100 times..never washed or soaked. i want to blue jeans to fade, but not sure how the black jeans will look when faded, so may be a different approach needed with blacks?

final part of this very long question - when can i get them hemmed? there is too much stacking (i'm 5'7)...so i'd like to get them hemmed but not sure to do this after wash or soak?

amazing how little i know about this process despite reading through the forum on this topic, i'm just overwhelmed with all the info on here


thanks

hot soak will shrink them more than a cold soak

hem after you soak/wash to make sure you get rid of all the shrinkage.

If the jeans have stretched out, and you're trying to get them back to their original size, it may not be worth the effort. Either a wash or a soak will do it (hot being more effective than cold), but they'll stretch back out within one wear afterwards.

I'm in college and looking for some dark jeans? I'm a size 28/30, which is difficult to find in most stores. Any suggestions? No skinny jeans or anything like that. I'm looking for some nice casual jeans that I can go out in.
