You should swing by more often.


 

What?  You gave him options in between ( "There are many of options for that: Rag & Bone, Jean Shop, Acne, etc." ) so I listed a couple others - do you disagree with anything I said or what?

 

 

 

But no big deal I'll stay outta your thread, was just trying to help.

Do you not disagree that you're repeating the same advice you gave him before? He blindly took your word the first time without realizing how crappy it was.

But yeah, I do disagree with recommending someone $500 Balmain jeans. It's a joke, as much as it is to recommend a brand like Zara.


Bottom line, I don't find it helpful to recommend things you know nothing about to people. The difference with the way other people on here give out advice is that they do so from personal experience and act like it's their own money on the line. But it's the internet, so anyone like you with a connection is suddenly a voice of reason.

I think I'd be pretty pissed if I was just starting out and I found out that the same guy I trusted to tell me which pair to buy was the same dude who called corduroy pants, "jeans."

I'm not really sure what your problem is, dude.  Here's his post:

I think I will hold off on buying the iron hearts, and take a bit more time to look at other brands & fits.
I really like some of Artishard116's recent fits in the WAYWT & TOJ threads - They show the kind of fit I want with the black jeans. I'm just not sure if that look really goes with the iron hearts....


He's on a budget, he's new to clothing, and he wants a pair of black overdyed denim.  As a side-note, the jeans Artishard is wearing in the fit pic he's referring to are waxed DRKSHDW, which I recommended both times, and which fit most similarly to the Balenciaga/Diors that you think are a joke.  

 

 

Here was my response:

For black jeans, imo, get h&m or uniqlo (something cheap) or, barring that, something with a cool finish like DRKSHDW or balenciaga waxed.  Buying super expensive raw denim in black isn't the best use of your money, unlike indigo where it can be pretty cool.  Plus, if you're trying to break in two pairs of heavy raws at once you're gonna be unhappy.

 

I mean, it sucks they didn't work out for him, though tbh it sounds like he just needs to size down, but are you really saying that recommending Uniqlo overdyed jeans in black instead of Iron Hearts to someone who is on a budget, just starting out, and buying a bunch of other stuff at the same time is bad advice?

I'm not the only person to wear carpenter jeans, and everyone else uses those pockets too. smile.gif I may be in the minority in disliking the standard blue, though. I may just have to order a pair from Carhartt (since nobody else seems to stock the Heritage Dark) and see how they work out. Seems like any time I think I'm okay to wear regular jeans to work, they get massively fucked up, so I definitely need something tough. I'll post back whenever I get around to discovering if these fit the bill.

I have a pair of SExDBxSxS12 heavyweight jeans that are about 1" too small in the waist. I was hoping they would stretch more but they haven't really. Is there any way to make these stretch or are they going to just be too small?

Have you worn them at least 30 times? if not give them time. Try wearing them for a few hours a day, if all else fails go on a diet!LOL!biggrin.gif

Hmm... Something tells me you continue to be fucktarded. Let's go to the tape:

RRL sometimes does washed denim shirts like that. Levi's, too.

Again, I think the only solution for tougher jeans is a bigger budget. Better tends to mean more $$$.

It depends on how much you need and how long you've been wearing. Self Edge puts out that "30 wears" disclaimer for people who don't know denim. Typically, you're going to get the stretch you need after a few days, at most. Otherwise, you're looking at having to wet the waistband and trying to pull the waist out anyway you can. My guess is that it's not just the waistband that's tight but the entire top block, right?

If so, sell.

Whodini & KingJulien - I have sent the Uniqlo's back and will have a look at all the options both of you suggested to see whats best for me. It's obvious you both have different opinions - but I appreciate both of your comments, so thanks.

Also in the post quoted above I said I had a budget of £2500. This has gone up to around £3500-4000 now so I'm not strictly on a tight budget.

Whilst I look at the other brands suggested - what do you both think of APC? I think these look OK :

http://www.apc.fr/wwuk/denim/jeans/petit-standard-jeans_pFV796336/colour-washed-black_dBA00003082-BV00261473.html

They don't say overdyed - but they are "Washed" black, so I'm guessing they wont fade much? I know lots of people in WAYWT wear APC - and I think there must be a good reason for this?

A.P.C. has a more fashion forward cut than most of the repro brands. The quality and construction isn't on the same level, it's a tradeoff. The new black ones seem to be an improvement, and MIJ as opposed to Macau. Be aware though that they seem to be running a bit slimmer than their raw denim counterparts.

Are they not the same denim that I posted above? The thing is I only have a 28" waist and I'm sure I read that with APC's you have to size down 1-2 sizes, so tresbien don't stock my size shog[1].gif

Thanks for the help

What are some fashionable branded jeans out these aside from A.P.C.? Looking for good quality at relatively affordable price.

Fashionable is a pretty broad term. APC is probably the best if you look at a price/product ratio for an "affordable price". 3Sixteen is similar to APC, but at a better quality/higher price.

 

Most of the high-end denim brands are for... well, denim nerds, but most make slim cuts, which I assume is what you define as fashionable. Give us a budget to work with, aswell as a cut.
