@ duke : Most People will kill me for this but for your range and fit, i guess taking a look at the 1969 GAP original Fit selvage wouldnt hurt...

Thanks for the suggestion.

I just ordered my first pair of Nudie jeans.  Slim Jim in organic dry broken twill.

 

 

Any tips for breaking them in?  I'm guessing these are the types of jeans to not wash for 6 months?  I read somewhere about putting them on and sitting in the bath tub for a half hour.....?

do NOT do this. Nudies are sanforized so there is no need to soak before wearing. Soaking would only prematurely remove dye. As with any other raw denim, avoid contact with water (no need to be neurotic about this) for as long as possible for maximum fade contrast, assuming that's what you're going for. Many ppl follow the '6 month rule' since that's what nudie suggests, but i've seen great results from washing after just 2-3 months too

Duke, for around $100 I would look into Unbranded or Naked and Famous if you're looking for raw. You're going to have to find N&F on sale to be around 100 which KL always seem to have. Depending how big you are Levis 511 is a slim tapered type fit which i like since I'm very slim. People may hate but Abercrombie and Fitch has pretty good quality..at least i think so. At outlets you can get them for 30 or online from 30-60. They have selvedge jeans too if that's what you're looking for. I just bought a pair of the skinnies but didn't really taper so I returned them.

Just picked up a pair of Roy jeans.

 

Absolutely can't button the top two.  How much will these stretch?

Any one out there interested or willing to sell a pair of pure blue Japan xx11 in (one wash)
In sz 31 or 32? Hemmed to 30" is fine. Used will be ok too.

@darkmatter7: first of all they will shrink as they are unsanforized. so maybe you should size up

They have been washed/soaked.  I found them at a thrift store...

Anyone can post a photo of a straight denim that is "fit" (length, waist...) with the wearer?
thanks,
post #18314 of 20698
@darkmatter: well then just try to wear them for a while. usually the waistband stretches back to raw measurements on unsanforized denim. since you found them at a thrift store, I guess you don't care about "losing value" on those jeans by wearing them a little bit.
