I feel like quality is kind of an elusive (and drastically overused) term. I can tell that my Edwins and my Nudies are both of comparable quality, and my Samurais, SExSCs, and SExDBS are all of higher quality, but I can't exactly put my finger on why. The SExSCs actually have very stretchy denim, and they're supposed to because it's a special "slack weave" denim that has more give to it than tighter weaves.

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?
Why not just get some jeans that already have the leg opening you want?

They look interesting, and the denim will be way cooler on the Artist jeans than on the Nudies. I haven't heard much about Artist Denim since it launched, though, so I don't know whether people have had any complaints.

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.
I've never had Flatheads, but I've never had a pair of unsanforized jeans that didn't stretch out to at least the pre-soak size in the waist.
