I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1207

Thanks a lot!
So, since they are around the same price range, I was thinking more the KMW and RRL
Could you give me some insight into how they fit differently?
Also, if you have any other suggestions for other jeans along these lines that would be great.

If you have questions on fit, you should be looking at measurements and comparing them to jeans you already own. It's not an exact science but it will at least give you a rough idea.

The brands you have already listed are a good start. Anything I'd add would be out of personal preference or because you're looking for something very specific in terms of fit, price, or the denim itself. I would add, however, that if you're looking at the lower end of $200 then you might want to add Rogue Territory to your list.

So I'm looking for a pair of deep indigo denim. I already have a pair of APC PS and I like the skinny tapered fit.

I'm deciding between:

What would you guys choose? What's the general consensus on Momotaro vs. PBJ? Most of these jeans (except the first PBJ) are pretty slim with a small leg opening, correct? Are the fades on BiG's site pretty accurate as to what I can expect them to look like after a bit of hard wear?

Some additional info: I'm 5'8", 160 lbs. I wear a size 30 in PS, but I probably could have gone with a 29. Although I expect that throwing them in the wash should shrink them a bit. Also, I live in NYC, so if you know of any places that have these in stock, I would love to head over to try them on. My price point is ~$300, so any additional recommendations are welcome!

 

Thanks in advance!

Momo and PBJ are apples and oranges. If you live in NYC, why wouldn't you just go to Blue in Green to see both brands in person?

In what way? Is it something to do with 'slubbyness'? I'm curious to know.

I plan on doing that. Just wanted a bit of information before taking a 40 minute train ride in 90 degree weather. biggrin.gif

When you have both brands in your hands, you will understand what I mean.

this is pure ignorance!
90% of the people around here would give an arm or leg to be able to just drive 40 minutes to check out the stuff they are interested in in person

Very true... im actually over internet sales.. I've spent about 3k on stuff online half of which i've sent back. Much easier to go to the source and make sure it fits, get a 2nd opinion, etc.

3x1 in NYC. It's not cheap and arguably not the best denim, either.

Looks like I have offended some members with my questions; believe me that was not the intent. I'm very new to raw denim. Since, BiG was recommended in these posts, I stopped by to buy a pair and ended with Eternals. I do not get to wear jeans often but I love them. This week I picked up LVC 1947 raw, which I am NOT going to wash. I plan to wear it for good 6 months before I soak it.

BTW how much does LVC raw stretch? I got 29 waist. I was told it will stretch an inch.

Next purchage is Earnest Sewn Fultons. I wanted to get Somet 003s but I figured I would never get enough wear on all pairs.

 

Thank you all.

Directly through RRL, Blake's, calling Context, etc. Sales typically don't include the line that the raw jeans are a part of, so ebay.

I'm sure it's been answered in this thread, but how would I go about sizing for a pair of Nudie jeans?  Specifically the Average Joe's or the Hank Rey's fits.  I normally wear a 32 or 33 waist with a 32-34 length.  I haven't decided on what wash I'll be getting.....possibly the Dry Organic (Average Joe), the Dry Orange Selvage (Hank Rey) or the Recycle Dry (Hank Rey).
