Thanks,

Roden Grey has 3 different years (not 1955 iirc) in 30 and 32 waists for ~$50 + $10 shipping

I have a very long pair of LVCs (already washed) that I'd like to hem so there is a 1" cuff. I should ask the tailor for "lock stitching," right? Do you foresee any problems with the hemming that could show up because I'm choosing to cuff? Thanks!

those are the boots and fit i want
would a 7.5 work?
thanks

I can't view the picture you linked to on the computer that I am on right now, but I think getting a leg opening to look good on a boot depends in part on your waist size and shoe size. For example, I have a 34" waist and wear a US 9D boot, and for me, the leg opening needs to be at least 8", sometimes more, for me to be happy with how it looks. But if you have a smaller waist size and smaller shoe size, you won't need as large of a leg opening for it to look good.

i think a straight or "normal" hem is anywhere between 16 - 18" or 8 - 9" measured one side only. wheeler might be able to confirm.

I fully agree with your classification, at least as far as it pertains to our waist size range (32-36). The actual numbers would be smaller for smaller waist sizes and larger for larger ones.

12" is quite an extreme taper, I don't think I could wear anything like that.

i dont think i could wear a 6" hem either. hard to get foot through hole. the most tapered pair i have are my mmms and they are just over 14" and they are NARROW. but i like narrow hems.

remember when japanese repos came out in the states? all the hems were like 18 - 19" and it was so annoying! but they are after all repos so i dont know why im complaining.

I wear boots a lot, so I don't mind the larger leg openings too much at all. They don't stack well, though, and they don't go too well with dressier shoes either, so in those situations, I prefer narrower hems. But I prefer not to go less than 7.5" on the hem, any narrower than that and my ankles feel constricted, plus it gets hard to take the pants on and off.

I may have missed it, but has anyone mentioned or seen Taylor Stich's line of denim?

http://taylorstitch.com/collections/denim

 

Two raw jeans using Japanese denim and the one using USA denim (Swift Mills, Georgia). The price is what caught my eye most of all -- they are all $128. It's interesting that two small businesses have now come out of domestically made denim under $150 in this last quarter of the year (Bonobos was earlier this year with their LA made cone denim line).

The Bonobos jeans are really going to be $100 every time because of the constant number of coupon codes out there. I have their darkest rinse and I love them. I know there are a lot of opinions on style forum about bonobos, but I like what they did here with their cone denim.

It should be noted, for those who care, that neither Bonobos nor Taylor Stitch uses selvage denim in their jeans.

On the selvage, it is hard, but there are examples of selvage jeans made in North America for around that price. IIRC, N&F has some models that retail for the same as Taylor Stitch.

On the Momo Ai contest, have you asked mikecch? He's really into the Ai, even more than me, though I think he is in a ROY contest right now.

cultizm.com has the denim you want. Plus, you don't have to pay VAT tax, so that's an automatic 20% if you're in the states.

Hi!

 

I recently bought a pair of Acne Jeans, with quite a high waist, which I really liked. What's your opinion on Acne denim?

Also, I was stupid enough to believe the shop assistant who insisted that the denim won't stretch too much, fast forward a week or so after I bought them and of course the fit feels different.

 

I bought it with a 30 waist, and I suppose I'm a 29 (they didn't have a 29 available and the 30 fit quite well).

 

I was thinking of trying to shrink them, using the good old method of washing them hot or soaking them in hot water and then putting them in the dryer at the highest setting. Can I expect a good result of this? Can this damage the denim? Fade the colour? 

 

Why is it generally said not to wash jeans for 6 months or so, even if not raw denim?

I think Acne has nice cuts, but their denim and construction quality are generally average at best.

Acne denim is sanforized, so you most likely won't get significant shrinkage out of washing and drying. They will shrink some, but they'll stretch back out pretty fast with wear. It won't damage the denim, but every wash will fade the color a little bit.

The sooner you wash, the less contrast you get on your fades. Other than that, though, there's no harm in washing denim sooner.
