You can scroll through the gallery in the "Post pics of denim" thread and see what works for you. Different brands/factories use different blends of different kinds of indigo, thus allowing for a variety of different shades of blue.

Ironing and starch would help, as would wear and washing. I have my doubts about vinegar but feel free to try it on some test fabric first.

Do you think I should try a size 36 or should I instead try a different brand like maybe APC rescue?  How different is the rescue cut from the weird guy cut?  I have APC NS being shipped to me, but I doubt they will fit either.

mlyngard gave me a few great recs for roomier thigh jeans with a decent taper, with the Skull 5507 and Warehouse 660 being two great choices. http://www.styleforum.net/forum/thread/55144/i-have-a-jean-the-ultimate-jean-thread-for-beginners-ask-questions-here/10185#post_3203787
I have the Skull 5507 with have plenty of room in the thighs, but are fairly slim in the top block which I think would work well for you as well. The Warehouse 660 are a pretty similar cut and might be the better choice as some stores (selfedge I believe) have even stopped carrying skull due to recent quality control issues.

-btw those weird guys might loosen up enough and with a little sag be acceptable, but I personally prefer to just start a little looser in the thighs. I have definitely had to resell jeans before hoping they would stretch and not getting enough room in the thighs.

Pretty much any indigo-dyed dark raw denim will fade to electric blue before it fades to white. That color is just a stage in the progression of fading.

True. That said, the N&F deep indigo gets some nice electric blue along the way.

I'm looking for a pair of dark slim/skinny jeans, and they need to be sort of dressy and refined.  Not the kind of slouchy ill-fitting skinny jeans that teens wear a foot below their waists.  Perhaps a dark dark blue wash, or a faded black wash... the kind of jeans that you could pair with Gucci loafers and a dress shirt/tie.  Any suggestions?

P.S. Seen the movie "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"?  Shia Labeouf's skinny jeans in that movie exemplify what I'm looking for.

My black grim tim nudies came in today. They look and feel great but was wondering if they were selvedge? Price was $190 and it says theyre organic cotton. Any way i can tell by looking?
post #15564 of 20547
if you don't know how to tell that they are selvedge by looking at them, it doesn't matter to you whether or not they are selvedge.
post #15565 of 20547
But doesnt washing them everyday ruin them if theyre raw selvedge? All i asked was a simple question. And how am i supposed to learn if i dont ask.

Flip the bottoms and check for a colored stripe. Maybe above the coin (edited typo) pocket also..

I don't think those are selvedge though

I don't mean to sound like a douche, but you could have googled "selvage" and found out what it looks like in about the same time it took you to ask your question.

People are free here to help others just as they are free to help themselves.

Sometimes people can avoid unnecessary grief when they perform a cursory search first. Often, it's faster and typically more detailed than simply waiting for a response. And if the doubt can't be answered after a quick check, then at least when one posts the question here it looks like an honest effort was made. For people like myself that have probably answered the same questions dozens of times, I'm more compelled to respond when the person has at least attempted to not make me do all the work.
