if you're a 30 inseam hemm to like 32.25. It's perfect for a small cuff. Taht's what I got my WG deep indigos hemmed to and I normally wear 30 length in jeans

Question: So I have some jeans (raw) that I wear uncuffed because (a) I wear them to work where cuffing would not be appropriate and (b) I'm just not a fan of the cuffed look (don't shoot me). So, their length is such that there is some moderate stacking on them. But when I come home we don't wear shoes around the house and they're long enough that just taking off my shoes would lead to holes in the back, which I don't really want to do. So I often then just cuff at home to not get a hole in my jeans. Which finally brings me to my question. Approrpiate? Not? What, if anything, does the quick cuff at home do to the jeans and fading?

Remind me again how much you'd like to spend? For whatever reason, a majority of the jeans you can find for under $200 aren't in a relaxed or conservative cut. Slim is in, but you'd think there'd be other brands who would want to fill that void that basically LVC (and a chunk of Japanese repros) only fills. I can only think of a couple of brands that have >8" opening on a size 32. That's kinda insane. Go into repro brands and you have a ton of options.

I can't speak to construction but the denim itself on the collab with NF looked very comparable to what you'd find in BiG or SE. Not exactly objective but the hand was what I'd call "nice."

I think you need to figure out the difference between non-overdyed and dyed/overdyed jeans.

This is the former (notice the white "spots," eg, weft): http://www.selfedge.com/uploaded_images/3sixteen_black_05_web-799501.jpg

This is the latter (notice the uniform color): http://www.mrporter.com/product/185551

So that pair at Porter's is what you're looking for, right? Uniformly black jeans? The kind that will be more resistant to fading that regular black jeans?

question: the jcrew 484 cut fits me perfectly. however, i'm not interested in purchasing denim from jcrew. the taper is perfect for me and so are the roomier thighs. does anyone have a recommendation for a raw denim the most similar to the 484 fit? anything over $250 would be out of my price range. thank you

Why don't you want to purchase from J. Crew? you just listed off several reasons why it's a good jean for you. Would you rather spend the next 6 months trying different jeans that internet people recommend to you and then end up selling or not wearing?

http://www.styleforum.net/t/231501/denim-cut-like-j-crews-484-slim-ft

Another option would be to go back to the J. Crew store with a tape measure, take a pair of 484's in your size into the dressing room, take measurements of them, come back to your computer, then look at the retailers on this site for jeans that match those measurements.

It's almost too simple.

Why even bother? J Crew is well known for having every single possible measurement of their items. It's another scenario where a simple email or phone call to the retailer would answer the question immediately.

Hey  guys

Ok somy neighborhoods are getting pretty worn out and Im ready for s higher tiered japanese denim so Ive been studying my ass off. Ive narrowed it down and I think Im gonna get a pair of sugarcanes and a pair of samurais. For the sugarcanes is the 1947 a good cut? Im also digging the okinawas any info on those? Will they fade as well as the 1947s, worth the premium  over the 47s?

As for the samurais could someone tell me whats a good right in the middle between tight and normal type fit? Think I want about 17-20oz on them maybe 21oz. 

Also some other brands I was considering; oni, flathead and paulrose.

I cant find too much info on paulrose anyone have any experience with them?

Any reccomendations, thoughts and info would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Not everyone is the same body type, so a "good cut" for whom? If you search for the specific models, you'll find tons of photos of worn-in pairs.

As for the Samis, I think most people go with the s710xx. Just compare the measurements to what you already wear and figure out what works for you.

Thanks man. I know to "go with what works" , I was just asking for some advice from people in the game longer. Im in central Illinois so theres no way for me to see or compare anything, hell our gap didnt even get their selvage lol.

For reference; 6'0 medium build, 33-35 waist.

Whodini - Sorry I thought that the jean shop "selvage" jeans weren't overdyed - I thought selvage meant something else....

Unfortunatly the jean shop jeans don't have a 28" waist so again - they wont fit shog[1].gif

Do you know of any other brands - or should I just settle for APC? atleast then they should fit. I'm thinking these ones:

You sound like you're built similarly to me. The Oni denim in and of itself is fantastic. The '47 cut by Sugarcane or LVC is really flattering - not too slim, not too baggy. A very good middle ground. Don't have any personal experience w/ Samurai, but the rep on the boards is great - if you can get it to fit you properly. PaulRose is a relatively new "subdivision" of Naked&Famous (same owner/production, at least), although I've read that their '47 cut as well is quite nice.

You've got a lot of nice options there. Dig a bit deeper, and no matter which way you go, I'm fairly confident you'll be satisfied.
