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:

Guy, Jean Shop sells any size you want: http://worldjeanshop.com/black-x-skinny/

Not to beat a dead horse, but if the measurements are what works for you and you don't mind fading or buying a new pair in a year, then go for it.

Otherwise, like I've told you a ton of times before, a good overdyed pair will last you a long time. Just get what works.

Iron Heart also has various overdyed models.

And other brands, like Strike Gold, PBJ, Momotaro, feature models with different weft colors, hence making the jeans darker in appearance.

If you are looking for something that doesn't fade but looking for quality, PBJ NC models might be just what you're after. They are dyed with a substance that doesn't lose color, even after prolonged wear.

That is definitely true, though it should be noted that Iron Heart's overdyed models do fade quite well. If you are looking for non-fading jeans, I wouldn't recommend them.

EDIT: However, IH's standard black denim, which they call "Superblack", does not fade, and the models using that denim may be worth checking out.

Thing is, he's looking for black. Otherwise, even Rogue Territory would be an option with their Dark Stanton.

Rag & Bone would be an option, too, but after a week of asking who knows if he'll ever pull the trigger.

cross-post: Looking into getting a pair of Japan Blue by Momotaro JB0701, was hoping the final waist would stretch out by 1-1.25" and thigh by 0.5" after wear so I could size down, is this possible? Also, how much does inseam shrink after hot soak and/or cold washes? I currently wear 30.75" inseam (after cuffing) and thinking about getting a 32" inseam, is this enough to account for shrinkage and an 0.875-1" cuff? Thanks!!

Japan Blue x Momo is sanforized already, so you'll get little to no shrink out of them. Stretching w/ momotaro denim varies by batch (it seems) but it's "usually" not the best stretching denim. That much in the thighs is probably not possible. Most common Momotaro advice is to go TTS.

Can anyone recommend jeans that would give me a fit like this in the APC/Nudie/etc. price range? The guy on left with the hat on. Would sag a bit less than in the pic. Would Petit Standards fit like it? 279

If I handed you a pair of jeans that had no labels, would you assume they were sanforized? I would, considering unsanforized denim makes up <1% of the market.

So unless they're TELLING you they're shrink to fit, then...

Carrot fit or anti-fit jeans. Skinny legs, longer rise, and roomier top block. Acne, Nudie Thin/Grim, etc. Quite a few brands do this.

i have cats at my place, and tend to get lots of hair on my jeans. is it a bad idea to use a lint roller on raw denim? like stripping the dye or something? it's too late now but just curious if it's gonna ruin my ~sick fades~

post #17533 of 20845

no, I have the exact same problem. My cat sheds like crazy. I just lightly roll the lint roller over my pants

 

Panzer- APC PS would give you a fit like that unless you have skinny ass thighs like I do then the thigh area wont be as tight

Who makes a solid slim-straight pair? Something similar to the Epaulet rivet chinos? Thanks.

How does hemming the lower leg of a jean usually come out? I've been looking at denim therapy and thinking about sending my worn APC New Standards to them. I would ask them to start from the lower thigh and take about half an inch off all the way down.
