There's no way to guess the model but the lack of waistband embroidery along with that shitty tag and the buttons=MIC. Avoid.

Yeah that's what I figured, there are quite a few pairs of them on eBay right now

There have been for years, at least since KMW stopped China operations way back.

I've worn both of these models before, and to be honest, you can't really go wrong with either one of them. Construction quality is pretty similar between the two brands. The overall fit is pretty similar as well, though I found the Eternals to be a little bit slimmer in the thighs and a little bit looser in the seat than the Momotaros. The Momotaro denim is slightly heavier of the two, but it's not a big difference (15.7 oz vs. 14.5 oz). The Eternal 811 denim is a little bit slubbier than the Momo 201 denim, but I wouldn't classify either of them as being particularly slubby. I personally preferred the cosmetic details of the Momotaro.

If I had to choose one for myself, I'd probably go with the Momotaros. They fit me a little bit better (I don't have much of an ass), and I do prefer their cosmetic details.

Hey whodini, looking to replace a pair of APCs I picked up two years ago. What are some sub-$200 alternatives with similar fit?

Rogue Territory has some models that are similar to APC NS (assuming that's which model you were referring to.) Rag & Bone is ok but Rogue is a better deal at retail.

There are other options listed in this thread, too, although some are a bit outdated:

Thanks, I'll give that link a look. You're right re: NS...should I think about Rogue Territory's Stanton as a comparable?

I received my A.P.C. New Cure's in the mail today.  They are too tight, so I will be returning them and looking for a different pair.

 

Does anyone know anything about these Big Johns?

 

http://www.barneys.com/Rigid-Selvedge-Jeans/501373506,default,pd.html?cgid=DENIM04-1#

 

They look like a great deal for good 15.5oz denim, but I am not sure about the cut, and know nothing about the sizing.  

 

I have a pair of N&F Weird Guys.  They are about a size too big for me.  I like the cut throughout, however, I wouldn't want to go any bigger than this in the leg.  Will these Big Johns be too big?  Does anyone know anything about them?

 

If these don't work out, does anyone know of any good deals currently going on some raw selvedge denim?  I may just end up getting some New Standards, but I'd rather find a Japanese Brand, or some LVC Raws on sale.

In terms of fit, more or less, yes. I think the rise might be a little lower.
post #16587 of 20892

So I measured some pants I think fit really well, tagged 29 (my usual "size"). Waist measured across = ~15". So according to online measurements, to get a 30" inch waist after stretching I'd need a tagged 27 for APC (measured by Context) and 28 for Nudie (Self Edge)? I'm guessing which fit you choose influences how much stretching should be considered?

 

Also, 28 seems to be the smallest size I can find for N&F online (Revolve, Blue Owl). Is 27 rare or simply non-existent?

27s are usually uncommon in general.

Fit would influence how much you should size down as much or more as stretching. You don't want to size down too much on slim jeans because you're focusing too much on the waistband; at the same time, if you're wearing something tight it's going to stretch out more than a looser fitting pair.

I have a pair of APC NS that I like a lot in terms of quality and construction. They are exactly the amount of nice-ness I want. However, the rise is a little too low for my body type, and I would prefer something that fits more like a pair of 501s.

Please recommend me something that is at the level of price and quality as the APCs, but with the 501-ish fit (most importantly higher rise than the NS)

Thanks!

N&F weird guys is pretty close but has a slightly higher rise than the NS.
