The listed rise online is pretty similar to the 1947 and 2009 rise sugar canes.
I certainly wouldn't consider the EPs to be a low rise.

YMMV

EP Smith: 501's have quite a bit higher rise than that, especially in the back.

Samurai has some 501 inspired cuts with 38" inseams: S0510XX ('47 501-inspired) S5000VX ('66 501-inspired)

50 wears is the equivalent of a little under 2 months of everyday wear. As long as the jeans aren't really stinky, I would personally do a hot soapy soak if I were in your position and wanted to clean them. If you are considering washing them mainly because you want to get them hemmed, that may not be necessary at this point if they jeans aren't too dirty or stinky. Just get them hemmed about an inch longer than you ordinarily would to account for possible incidental shrinkage in the future.

great....you've saved me having to read through more thread, thank you.

hello,
I just joined this site and see so much information! such a awesome resource. I got into the jean game very late. Before this I would wear w.e jeans express,ck,levi 511 505 514. Just recently I started getting nicer jeans. My friend gave me some brand new obey wax denim, and rock and republic jeans brand new and disel. They all fit very nice and quality seemed way better than what I was wearing. Finally jumped on the nudies train not to long ago and they are super comfy and love the fits.
I had no clue about soaking/washing jeans hemming ect... So I am on here to learn a good bit about those facts washing soaking and hemming. In nudies I buy a 36x34 and they are way to long I am 5 10.5 shorter legs.
-so what should I tell the cleaner to do with my jeans hem them or tapper not exactly sure
-cleaning nudies I read the book it states wait months and months, but heard washing will shrink them make the length ? I was thinking a ocean dip for them?


sorry for the long winded paragraph and grammer issues thanks your help guys.

hey man! and good job getting into the jean game haha it's never too late. but first off you were asking what the cleaner should do with your jeans (hem,etc.) first of all don't get your cleaner to hem your jeans! haha go to someone who knows how to do that, and since you have shorter legs you're gonna want to hem them based on what kind of fit you want. if you want a lot of stacking or you like to cuff then leave some extra length. tapering is if you want the leg opening a little smaller, which is different than hemming so you'll want to think about that too. as for washing any raw denim, its good to wait a little bit so you can get some fades going, but honestly its up to you on how often you want to wash. most people wait around 5 months of normal wear before they wash just for some contrast in their fades so try that out first, and if they start to smell then give them a soak or wash. washing won't reduce the length really.. it will make the denim threads contract and that will make your jeans shrink a little but with wear they'll stretch out again. hope this helps! feel free to keep asking away

Really irks me that it's borderline impossible to get LVC 1947s in a 30 x 38 (or thereabouts). I saw a pair on Cultizm once, and I really wish I'd jumped on it.

I'd probably just email Gordon (at Blue in Green) or Kiya (at Self Edge) with your question. They have probably the best two stores for raw denim, and I've been happy with my purchases from both (none of which are 1947-based, so I can't help you with that part).

sorry for the long winded paragraph and grammer issues thanks your help guys.

I think the first question is what model of Nudies you bought. If they don't have "dry" in the name, you probably don't need to worry about washing or not washing them, because they're probably pre-washed and they're not going to fade the way raw/dry denim does.

Regardless of what type of jeans you bought, you should wash (or at the very least soak) your jeans if any of the following conditions apply:

- they smell bad
- they're dirty
- you spilled something on them

People take the "don't wash for 6 months" as a hard-and-fast rule and end up with gross smells, stains, and crotch rips. Don't be that guy. You can still get nice fades if you wash them when they need to be washed.

I'm aiming to wear the same pair of jeans basically every day for a year. It would be disgusting if I didn't wash them. Here's what I do:

- only wash when needed (I don't have any rules on washing every however-many days)
- cold water
- gentle cycle
- I use a small amount of Dr. Bronner's unscented liquid soap. This is a very gentle cleaner that doesn't contain any harsh chemicals or optical brighteners (which are found in most commercial detergents). You can also use Woolite Dark, and some people buy special jeans soaps available from some Japanese denim companies.
- hang to dry

If I just had a spill or a little bit of dirt, I might soak them in warm water, also with a bit of soap, maybe spot-clean if necessary, then rinse them to get the soap out and hang to dry.

hello guys, this is my very first post here.
Well i'm gonna get to the point here, i've got a question regarding backpocket difference between TFH 2001 & 1001.
I noticed that 2001's backpocket is way "sharper" in design compared to those of 1001.
Now, my question is, those 2 backpockets, were they really different in size (length x width) / it's just the way of stitching that differentiates those two?
Is it true, if I said that, 2001's backpocket's length is longer than 1001's or both of them are actually the same?
post #15130 of 20885
Hey could you guys recommend a slim fit jean that is dressier for clubbing/date situations? I want to get it tailored to look well with my boots instead of bunched up so I'm looking for something pre-washed. Any suggestions?
post #15131 of 20885
I think you're right. I haven't had the 1001 but I do have the 2001 and the pocket looks a tiny bit taller. Doesn't bother me though, you wouldn't notice unless you were really looking for it. I can snap a picture if you want

So, the 2001 is just slightly longer isnt it?
Well, if you don't mine, i'd like to see your fit pict with the 2001. thanks before

What are the upsides, or maybe strengths of Dior Homme denim? MIJ. There is a pair over at B&S. And if someone mentions "denim quality" could you go into a little detail. Thanks!

The main 'strength' of Dior jeans is the cut. Not sure what detail you want about the denim quality, it's good and worth the B&S price

The cut is really their best quality. The clasp closure is also different

As far as quality, there are many ways to measure that. IME Dior denim is very tough and will generally take more abuse and have a longer life than APC in regards to tears/blowouts. Diors also hold their color much longer than most others. Fades come slow and there are not tons of good pics online of nicely faded Diors. Some, but nowhere near as many as some of the other popular models. The MIJ version also has a bit of a green cast to them, which some people prefer.

If you're decently tall with narrow hips and like that look, I would say go for it. Otherwise, there is no point in paying the Dior premium.
