I think the 28 would be better in the long run

Depending on how you'd like them to fit, I'd go with the 28s (aside from the fact that returning a pair of jeans you've been wearing around your house for two days and have 'stretched' is kinda dirtbag).

Looks like you have plenty of room to move in the 28s and they'll stretch a bunch.

Yeah 28s, and also the bolded part.

I had a post in the 3sixteen thread, but I think it got lost to moderation or something. This is probably a better place for it anyways, sorry if it ends up in two places!
 
I recently purchased the SL-100x from Self Edge’s online store in size 34. I’m 6’5”, ~205-210 lbs, all my height in my legs and very high/large hips. The jeans are skintight from the crotch to just above the knee and I can barely button them. It's almost impossible for me to sit down in them. I just wanted to get a second opinion on these options:
 
1) I could keep them; will they stretch enough?
2) I could just go up one size – this is what I’m leaning towards.
3) I could wait for the 3sixteen+ 11BSP to be back in stock.
4) I could get the Iron Heart 634-XHS, although this is a bit more than I wanted to spend on my first pair of raw denim.
 
These other models seem to be the only ones on Self Edge that have a long enough inseam and aren’t too slim for me.
 
Thoughts?

sup guys! i bought new jeans and I want some advice. They're the givenchy overdyed denim. They're not equally overdyed all over. I really like the finish underneat the overdyed part actually. Do you know if they're supposed to bleed alot? i usually wait as much as i can before washing my jeans and with this model i'm wondering what to do to achieve the nicest fading. never wash?, wash once before wearing and wait a long time before next wash?. I don't want the dye to go away immediately but the fabric underneat (raw) is pretty nice. I don't want to mess it up haha! thanks

thats what it looks like : 525

My thighs agree. I think I'm just going to move up one size.

+1

it looks way too tight for living, and I say that also after buying a pair of raw raleigh denim jeans that I could barely button, which you can see here: furo's 1st pair of Raleigh denim

Ketawa, it's too tight. And 3-Sixteen Jeans does not stretch so buy true to size.

For Christmas I was given my first two pairs of "good" jeans - one from my mom and one from my wife. Both are 7 "Austyn" jeans, a size smaller than I wear in slacks. They fit perfectly, and are the most comfortable pieces of clothing I own. The problem is, naturally, they're nearly $200 a pair. Of course, this is remedied by scouring Ebay, but I wanted to know if there are any other jeans with a similar (identical?) fit to these since I have beefy legs which means trying to wear most fashion jeans is like trying to shove a tree trunk into a tube sock.

I think the 29s look better right now, but they will stretch. If you like the idea of getting a little bit of a looser fit with this cut, stick with those.

The 28s look a little bit tight for my taste, but I would expect them to stretch more over the next 3-4 weeks. If you want a slimmer fit with this cut, go with those.

Usually overdyes don't bleed as much as indigo. If the garment is overdyed, you don't need to wash before wearing.

Hey guys, what do you think my options are for this stitch? It's a pair of APC NS that I've owned for about 6 months now. About a month ago the left pocket stitching started coming undone. Is this easily fixed? Can any tailor take care of this? Thanks!

Any tailor should be able to take care of that.
