With brands like Acne, you're paying for the name and the cut. Nudie has a lot of variety but you pay for that premium. So are fashion brands up to the same quality as a denim company like Iron Heart? They're not marketed as such and they're not priced as such, so no.
And are three pairs enough for what? Most on this thread have 5+ pairs and several in the double digits.

I guess I didn't make my point well enough, I knew that Iron Heart would be superior to the brands I mentioned - but I wasn't sure how drastic the differance was and if they are worth an extra £200 for jeans that will not be my go to pair. From your response it seems you think they are worth it - So I will do more research into other iron heart cuts.

Thanks smile.gif

Interesting read; thanks for posting. I kinda feel like Kiya (at Self Edge) should've gotten a nod in addition to Gordon (Blue in Green), but I don't really know the chronology, just what the stores do and offer today.

I gave mine a bath the other day. Soap and cold water brought out the wear a bit more but nothing extreme. You could just soak them.

The canvas has a lot of indigo, it's not gonna rub completely off from a wash.

So I need new jeans.

 

I'm a skinny dude, and its really easy for straight legs to look like sails on me, and skinny's to look like girls pants. 

 

I just want a plain, normal, dark blue pair of jeans, nothing fancy, no distressing, making them look faded, weird shit on/with the back pockets.

 

Ideally I'd like a thicker material, I don't like freezing my todger off.

 

And I'd like this for under 45 bucks.

 

 

So can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm coming up with nothing on ebay except 300USD japanese things...used.

Any raw denim suggestions that fits like Dockers Alpha Khakis?

TY guys. Didn't know whether the denim heads knew something I didn't. Glad to see Levi's is as good as I thought.

I believe Levi's does manufacture different lines with respect to retailers... some of the stuff it seems is somewhat lesser quality at places like Kohl's or Macy's or whatever. But for Levi's there is also LVC and Made&Crafted which you may find on sale and get a deal on some better quality denim.

The canvas on the RK ISC is sanforized, it won't shrink much.

For under $45, Levi's is still one of the best out there.

It's not great but you don't have a lot of options at that price.

Levi's has many variations of the same model and as with anything else the only real indication of what you're getting is by looking at the MSRP and the store.

just for shits and giggles, would the answer change if i wanted something that basic and plain if my budget went up to 100?

You could stick to the same cut but with better denim, move to other brands that retail around there like Uniqlo, or buy on sale or off B&S. So yeah, it changes things a lot.
