When quality becomes a subjective matter, it will be hard to draw any conclusions. Tears and crotch blowouts are frequent on any raw denim. There are people who never had these problems with cheap jeans, only on expensive raw...so does that mean quality is BS? Stretchy fabric(APC) is definitely not a good sign of quality, just look at the confusion it causes. The fabric holds very little indigo compared to other brands. But it fades easily so I suppose that's a measure of quality for some. Ironically Jean Touitou considers fabric the most important part of a jean.

Tell me if this is a good idea...

I'm looking for something to wear with slim boots like PS Ricards. I'm thinking about getting a pair of black KMW 1980s and having them tapered, and leaving the inseam long and stacking them. Is that a sound plan? Will this be an okay look for year round?

What are your guys thoughts on Artist Denim? I've been debating over getting a pair of those or Nudies.

Hm, thanks for the insight.

If Dior MIJ is characterized by cut foremost then perhaps they aren't for me; I'm perfectly happy with the fit of these cheap Cone Mill EP's I'm wearing! And the ability to retain the indigo is actually not really what I'm looking for. In the B&S pictures there was a really neat little metal clasp thingy though haha.

I'm not so sure I buy the logic that there isn't a lot of Dior evo pics because it retains indigo so well. Same could be said about Ironheart and yet there are plenty of examples of faded pairs of jeans. People talk about Dior on here for fit but the same people who trash their KMWs, FH, et. al. aren't the same people who are going to drop $300+ on what are essentially fashion jeans. Not only are denim heads looking for something more than fit, but nowadays it's harder to find selvage Dior than not. It's a niche brand and while the denim is acknowledged, it certainly isn't pushed onto the same people on here nor has the same built-in community. Capnpryo or whatever had some great success with his Diors and that's just one user off the top of my head. They're just decent jeans marked up because of the brand name and renowned for the fit. Denimheads usually look elsewhere and fashionistas don't give a shit about fading. And they have a trouser clasp, ffs. They're not meant to be worn 501s.

And yet, whenever someone posts a pair of worn Diors, circlejerks abound

Hey guys. I've been reading up on denim lately and I recently donated my one "good" (Levi 511 I washed after every wear. I'm sorry) pair of jeans because I didn't treat denim how I should/learned.
Now I need to buy a new pair of jeans and I was wondering if you guys can help me out with my purchase because of my odd measurements.
Measurements: Waist: 34" Thigh: 10.75" Knee: 7.125" Inseam: 26.25"
The thing is, I'm not a big guy, so when I did my waist measurement, it freaked me out a little because ALL of my pants are 30" waist or 31". Whenever I try on 32" anything, it's just way too loose- this goes for any type of pants. And then going on quality denim sites like APC, Nudie, etc and all those jeans having huge inseam lengths just makes me scared to buy anything. This will be my first real denim experience. My budget max is $170. Any help is appreciated.

You can hem/cuff, inseam isn't a problem

I'm having a jean dilemma. I have a pair of Flathead BSP's in a size 32 which presoak don't fit too bad. (I'll have to post a picture). I'm a size 31 in a pair of Iron Heart 301S. I have no idea how much these will shrink as they're my first pair of unsanforized denim, but as they're not loose now, should I exchange them for a 33 or just cold soak? I'd like them to fit similar to the Iron Hearts.

Are those xanax TTS or are they vanity sized?
