Of course. It's not a flat piece of fabric back there and not all yokes are the same.

Not sure why you'd recommend APC to the guy below when he's clearly asking for RT help or for anything dark/overdyed but...

I can't seem to find any reviews on the fit of the jeans. I am looking at the Dark Stantons and want to know if anyone has any experience with them? Are they a really heavy weight jean, how is the fit, tts, when the say slim fit is it really slim fit (so many jeans I have tried on claiming to be slim fit are far from it) and would this be a jean to that can be carried over into summer?
If anyone has any other suggestions for a dark selvage jean under or around $200 let me know I am open to hearing ideas. It's hard to judge a jeans fit from pictures on the internet. Unfortunately I am not around anywhere that sells higher end jeans and therefore can't try them on. Thanks.

There's a Rogue Territory thread that you might want to look at, both on here and on superfuture. If you don't know denim outside of the 511 then yes, they will feel more substantial (heavier.) There are quite a few fit pics of Stantons online, as well as measurements on the RT website, so you can figure out for yourself how slim they are compared to your 511. The basic advice is to go TTS but it depends on body type. I feel like I could size one down in the waist but then it might be a bit skinny in the legs.

The summer question is subjective. Do you wear jeans in the summer? Good. These are jeans.

Any brands with differing yokes you can think of? Trying to get a sense in my head for how the yokes can be different.

I haven't sat down and compared yokes of every manufacturer, but that's one way how you get a different rear fit. Look at women's jeans like Levi's and how they have a fit for different bodies that's different from "slim" or "skinny." The amount of yoke, as well as the kind, are factors of curve and shape. If you google "jeans yoke" I'm sure you'll come across loads of examples.

APC makes selvage jeans. The jeans the OP was referring to are "dark" because they're overdyed so you can't see the weft. The standard Stantons are just like any other jeans.

Also, I hope the OP looks at the site because the Dark Stantons aren't selvage, not that it matters much.

Has anyone who wears J Brand tried the Walker fit? I was able to try the Kane and they were comfortable enough but they made my ass look like it stuck out abnormally (someone on here mentioned a slightly odd fit in the rear). I figured that maybe the slightly more relaxed fit would be better, but would like any firsthand accounts of trying them (they weren't at the stores I checked out).

Sweet, thank you for the help.

can anyone enlighten me on sizing for spurrs? im a 29 in nudie slim jims, 30 in naked and famous, and 27 (yeah...27) in jean shops. thanks.

Another Dior sizing question (I've already searched for my answer, but no luck):

 

I have a pair of raw Nudie Slim Jims in size 29.  After a few months of wear, I had to wash them because the waist had stretched too much.  They fit pretty well now.  For Dior MIJ 19cm in black, should I get size 28 or 29?

 

edit: also, size 28 in 7 for All Mankind Slimmy fits me perfectly.

CD Hagg what kind of look are you going for?  The runway look, or super slim fit?  They're made to be worn TTS and low like this:

But like 80-90% of the guys here that have them size down for a skinny fit.  Depends how you want to wear them, so I'd say 28-30 (assuming 7fam are vanity sized +2)

^ Thanks for the link!

 

I'm kind of looking for something inbetween the Dior-approved fit and the SF-approved fit.  I don't like skin-tight jeans, and I don't like having to sag too much.  But I've also found that too much room at the thighs just looks sloppy on me (although I've never worn Diors before).

 

post #17590 of 20653

so i have had these jeans for about a month and i've never really gotten opinion on how they fit. anyone care to comment?

 

3sixteen st-120x... hemmed to 32" for now. i will probably hem them again after i wash. ignore shoes, i just wear them around the house to keep them from dragging on the ground.

^ Fit looks good to me.

Are these jeans selvedge in the sense that they will fade and look according to my lifestyle or is that something I will only get with the "raw selvedge" option?

Depends on the cut, depends if washed. In the past, I've stayed true to my usual size in the pipe legs. Problem is that some of them are smaller than tagged. You need to get measurements first.

Please stop reading ad copy and then regurgitating it. Just stop it. I'm begging you. They're dark fucking jeans. They'll fade. And why would you go with that model when the raw version is cheaper anyway?

i don't quite like the way these jeans sit on me so im going to see a tailor but im clueless what should i ask for. they're cut pretty much straight from the knee down. fwiw i enjoy stacks. taper the thigh a bit and then taper from knee down or something?

what is it that you don't like about the fit? doesn't look like there is much room for tapering there, seems pretty slim fit...
