why are people specifying to wash denim in saltwater for a beach wash? can't i do the same process in freshwater with sand, since we're talking about rinsing the denim with freshwater after anyway?

Depends on how much you want to spend: http://www.styleforum.net/t/230174/jeans-similar-to-apc-new-standards/0_50

Add Rogue Territory to that list if you're looking for something around the $200 level.

I wish this would just die already. There's no magic effect to it. All the work comes from months of wear, not from ten minutes wading around in water and another five looking like this jackass:

hi all

 

new here. 

 

I sent this email to Ande Whall (getting a pair of his jeans next month). 

 

"I know this might be an odd question, but I really want to buy your jeans, and I'm going to take the measurements you recommend on your site. I have a disability and I wear braces under my jeans. I was wondering I really want a slim fit (almost i guess like levis 511's but I want them a touch skinnier, I dont really want super skinny like 510's) which ones would you recommend. I need enough space for my brace, I wear 511's mostly (there was this 510 from levis called black cat I loved and was a tad less skinny). Sorry if this is confusing, this is my first pair of super nice jeans, just want it done right, especially cause the disability makes the fit a little bit more difficult."

 

He said he wasnt aware what the 510s or 511s are like so I was wondering if those who bought a pair would be able to compare?

In search of designer jeans for a short guy.  30" waist, 26" inseam.  I prefer slightly narrow legged jeans, but not extreme.

 

I would appreciate some recommendations.  Price less than $300...

At $300, you can get just about anything you want. You'll just need hemming/chainstitching with it because almost all inseams will be at least 30+.

There's an APC thread that's better suited for this kind of question. Normally, it's size down two but there's a rumor that they changed their sizing.

Unless I'm missing something, you already own a pair of 511s. Why wouldn't you just measure them to compare against Whall's measurements? He's got several different fits so if one cut doesn't work, another probably will.

I wouldn't doubt that the jersey shore is filled with crap.

How's the return/exchange process at Context Clothing?

 

They won't refund your money, but supposedly they'll accept exchanges.  Thus, in theory, I should be able to exchange a pair of jeans multiple times until I find the best cut and size.  Does this work in practice?  Any caveats?

Hey guys I have a question about raw denim...

 

So I'm a little short 5' 8'' or about 170cm. I have slightly bigger legs (from running and stuff). Upper body has some muscle too. Pants size is 30x29 or maybe 29x29.

 

I was wondering what kind of fit I should get for raw denim?

 

I like pants with a taper (hate boot cuts) but I don't like how tight the jeans look on my thighs.

 

I wore some uniqlo made in Japan S001 but they were kind of tight in the thighs.

 

Any advice? Thanks

 

ps. How are NF Weird Guys?

post #18149 of 20549

I have a new pair of APC PS and they are a little long.  I typically wear a 29/30 in length.  I believe the APC's are 32.  I'm currently wearing them cuffed and with a little extra stacking.

 

My question is, should I hem them and what do I need to consider?  Will they shrink significantly if washed? 

post #18150 of 20549

APCs apparently don't shrink much, I left an extra inch in mine.  I think they have a 34 inch inseam though, so it's up to you, but I personally would choose between stacking or cuffing (or just a regular break); both together don't look so great.
