I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1103

post #16531 of 20605
Cross post from J. Crew thread, but may get a better answer here. Anyone have experience with the Wallace and Barnes jeans at J. Crew? They look good; I just want a light wash slim-fitting jean. Description says they are unsanforized, so any sizing advice would also be appreciated.

Well, I guess it technically is still unsanforized denim, just, you know, with all the shrinkage out of it. Rather a moot point if I'm correct, but I guess that's a selling term now.

I don't really care whether it is unsanforized or not... just needed to know for sizing.

So what's that whole "z-twill" verbiage then?

Just how the weft and warp are interwoven. z-twill is also called right hand twill and is the most common weave used for denim. Nothing incredibly important about it, there are differences between left/right/broken twill, but I don't think J Crew really cares, probably more of a selling point than anything.

I don't know of any black overdyed selvage jeans in existence that retail for under $150. A year or two ago, I saw some black overdyed Banana Republic jeans for $60-$70 a pair, but they weren't selvage, and the overdye was different from how, say, Iron Heart does it. It wasn't as thorough, you could see a lot of indigo peeking through even when the jeans were brand new.

Tape.

One thing cancels out the other. You should probably stick to your usual size or shoot them an email as they'll give you exact measurements on anything.

Hello folks! New here and this is my first post!

 

I am currently looking into getting some new denim and am very disappointed that I have been having a hard time finding the perfect fit for me.  My favorites are by far Levi 507 slim boot. Of course, these are discontinued.  The other is Buckle Bryan and Brayden. These 3 fits are the entirety of my collection.  I would like to know from all of you if there are some other brands, styles, etc that would have a similar fit to Levi 507. Pricing would preferably reasonable. (under 150). Need to be low rise/slim fit/preferably a slight boot cut.  I have a western sort of style so I wear cowboy boots all the time/Polo shirts/Dress shirts.

 

Whatchu think? Thanks in advance!

Hi Everyone!

 

So, I got into the denim about a year and a half ago when I bought my first pair of premium jeans. I bought the Citizens of Humanity Core jeans in a 30 waist. Even though I have bought more denim since then, I very much love my Citizens. They remain to be my favorite jeans but they are different from when I bought them. I didnt know you shouldnt really wash denim when i bought them so they have been washed a lot. Here are the problems with them and I hope there are solutions:

 

1) There are holes in the side

2)The jean used to fit very well but is now very loose 

3)parts of the jean are very faded(almost white) while other parts are still as dark as the day i bought them. The jeans are a dark indigo thus the fading looks a little unnatural. 

4) I had the pants hemmed but the tailer messed up and stitched the interior edge shut at the bottom

 

I am going to New York in december and plan on taking my jeans to a denim store(like self edge) to fix the rips, but is there anything i can as far as fit and color. Also, ive been caring for new denim much more. Is there anything you would suggest for future jean care?

 

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Not much bootcut recommended on here, you're going to find the opposite here (straight/tapered.) If you're wearing cowboy boots, straight will look better, anyway. If you're good with that then we can talk suggestions.

1) Patches/stitching.
2) Nothing you can do about that save size down in the future.
3) Nothing you can do about that save buying jeans that are designed not to fade or accepting the fading.
4) Don't take your jeans to tailors that treat jeans as trousers OR know what a good hem job looks like and specify next time.

Im good with straight i guess. I don't like the taper look and prefer not too much stacking at the shoe level. Does that help things? Thanks for your help

If you don't want your jeans to stack around your shoes, just have them hemmed to the right length for your legs. Jeans only stack a lot when they are too long for your legs.

If you are willing to accept straight, and if you want slim with a low rise and a wide leg opening for your boots, one of the more popular choices of cut here is the Naked & Famous Slim Guy. If you are willing to go a little bit higher than $150, another popular cut that might fit what you are looking for is the APC Rescue, which usually goes for $175.

rescue looks baggier, because back pockets are lower and are high/medium rise

You can find deals if you keep your eyes peeled. Ebay, b&s on here, or even all the sales going on right now. You can usually find RRL below retail, or even a place like Urban Outfitters has a decent pair of Blue Bell Wranglers for $100.

How is the Drkshdw detroit cut? Anything I should know in regards to fit/sizing/durability? Thinking of grabbing a pair in black on sale for ~270
post #16545 of 20605
Could anyone point me to a pair that fits like the 511 in the butt/crotch/thigh, somewhere between the 511 and 514 in the knee-to-ankle region, and has a higher rise, like the 501?
