I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1163

post #17431 of 20611
Ok newbie question here. I have only 1 pair of raw denim jeans so far (APC NS). What's consensus next best brand? I found the new standards to have not enough room in the crotch, bunched up a bit too much vertically on the calves, and tight on the hips (the hip problem might be because I think I bought a size too small). I'd like something that gives good fades - after a year and 1 wash, the APCs didn't fade much.

Any suggestions? I was thinking Nudies or Naked and Famous possibly.

Thanks!

Why'd you pick the two worst brands?

What would you recommend instead at their price range?

idk about nudies, but i don't think naked and famous is too bad. especially being <200

Just save up a bit more and get 3Sixteen. They're stil just south of $200, and the quality is far better, from what I've seen, than N&F and Nudie.

Same advice I gave this guy here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/55144/i-have-a-jean-the-ultimate-jean-thread-for-beginners-ask-questions-here/17400_50#post_5256345

Personal issues with their fits aside, I've never really seen the appeal. You're paying for the fabric, which can be pretty awesome, while everything else is below par for the price. Unless he's looking for glow in the dark jeans, there are better alternatives for the price.

They'll probably come out with selvage cunt hair pure indigo fabric but you'd still have to put a gun to my head before I recommended the brand to anyone.

Hello guys,

 

since my post seems to have vanished in the void of etheral limbs, I'm posting again (Sorry if the other post ends up showing).

 

First, I'd like to thank you guys (especially Commodorewheeler worship.gif) for the help you brought me in my search of bulletproof denim. I went to New York last month (Cool trip even if I ended not so fond of the city) and had the time(one week is short in New York eek.gif ) to go to Selfedge. I came back with an IronHeart denim (Beatle Buster - 634 alike). I will post pics if I get the time to.

 

Unfortunately, this weekend I found a little tear in the fabric. It might looks like nothing (and I surely do sound like fuckin' psycho about my clothes, but it's ok...) but I wanted to make it sure by getting a pro glance on what's troubling me (didn't find anything on google or searh function)

 

So here we are;

>DSCN0526.jpg

 

My best shot is the fabric thread unwinded (not sure how to say that in english) during the making process and this shouldn't affect the life expectancy of my denim. It's located on the leg, under the knee.

 

So my questions are;

 

- Is this something I should pay attention about ?

 

- If so, what can I do ?

 

Thanks again for the help and have fun,

 

Urquhart

 

edit:

 

@Nooneofnote; I had the same problem than you on APC. Their waist is too low. Don't know where you're from, but you might want to try the EDWIN ED-47 rainbow selvedge.

 

Mid high rise, a bit wider on the leg than the APC NS and around the same budget, at least in Europe.

Is there actually a hole there? To me, from the picture, it just looks like a knob, an irregularity in the weave of the fabric. But you called it a "tear".

If there's no hole there, it's nothing to worry about. If there is a hole there, you could either try to exchange the jeans or get that area repaired and reinforced by a denim tailor.

Just picked up my first real denim with the guidance of Mauro (WvG fame). I have a weird shape so skinny doesn't work on me because of my thighs. Picked up AG hero's and the fit perfect. any suggestions on other types?

Hi,

 

Sorry about "tear". English isn't my first language so I couldn't find the right word to describe it. I checked the fabric on both sides and there is no hole. As you said, I believe it's just that the thread, supposed to be rolled on itself before being weaved with others, unweaved during the process. Well now I can wear my denim in peace rotflmao.gif

 

Well; thanks again !!

 

Urquhart

Wait, Mauro told you to buy AGs? He's trolling you hard if so.
