I'm 5'9", 150 pounds and they'll be for casual wear to compliment a pair of CP's or Vans so I'm looking for some taper but not too much with at least 7.25" leg opening. The 3Sixteen SL-200x looks fairly close, how about the SL-100x or ST-100x?

Have you tried Dior Homme the 19cm cut? It's similar to APC NS, and if too slim they have a 21cm as well that's pretty cool.

Uniqlo S-000: My perfect jean. I cycle a lot, and it's got the right amount of stretch, looks good on me, and isn't too heavy. Bought one pair when I was over there, wore them ragged.

 

Anyone know a similar sort of jean? Good, light denim, skinny but not skintight, and 13oz or under.

Sounds like the ST cut would be right for you... it's a slim cut with taper but is not a super skinny silhouette. The ST-200x is a black jean whereas the ST-100x is indigo... depending on what color you're looking for you can choose accordingly. Both of them feature our new denim that we custom developed with Kuroki Mills this season.

Lemme get this straight.
When people say size down 2 for APC's dont you obviously have to because they are vanity sized? Or do they refer to sizing down further after the vanity sizes have been taken into consideration?

People typically sound down an extra inch or two post-vanity sizing to account for the massive amount of stretching you'll get with APCs, and fit preference. I believe 2 sizes down is considered a slim, slightly slouchy fit, whereas 3 is slimmer, and 4 is extremetesticaldiscomfort skinniness. If you're slim, I'd probably size down 3, assuming you can get them buttoned up without too much hassle.

It is because of the vanity sizing. For example, my true waist measurement is 34", and I wear a 31 or 32 in APCs, depending on how tight I want them.

Hi everyone

I need some help! Im having to do a presentaion for an interview and im doing it on denim and also about being denim head! I just wanted to get some different perspectives other than my own.

Hey guys I tried googling it and tried to look in the Blue in Green website but Pure Blue Japans that say the thread sizing is XX-008 or whatever. specifically for Pure Blue Japan Jeans - XX-008 Neo-Vintage Slim.. is the XX-00? does it mean the jean is slubbier the higher the number and smoother the lower? I'm confused on how it identifies the texture it just says it has sizing from 01- 09 etc..

AFAIK the XX-00_ is just different cuts and has nothing to do with the slubbiness of the denim.
XX-003 regular fit tapered
XX-005 slim straight
XX-011 left hand slim tapered
Etc..

My ultimate fav jean is the Rock & Republic Henlee bootcut.  They make them both slim and regular-fit, but even the regular-fit looks amazing on a slim guy.  The denim is 98% cotton and 2% spandex, and extremely soft.  The softness and smoothness of Rock & Republic fabric, as well as the amazing drape (no bunching or creases anywhere) makes them much more sophisticated than most jeans.  They look amazing with dress shoes and an oxford shirt.  If you're giving a presentation, I'd assume that you want to look good.  Rock & Republic Henlee jeans fit like wool slacks almost, so you will look very dressy.

 

I'd reccomend washing them ( cold or tap-water temperature) a couple of times after you get them, and THEN take them to a good tailor and get an original hem.  You want the hem to just touch the ground behind your heel while you're standing, so make sure you figure out which pair of shoes you'll be wearing them with most.  To be safe, you could also ask for a half-inch of extra length, because to do an original hem you have to cut off a good deal of fabric.

 

They're a little pricy ($150-200 range), but totally worth it.  You can get them at Saks, or save some money and see if you can get them discounted online (but be aware that the Henlee jeans are hard to find on sale, since they're in such high demand).
