I was wondering what the different cut's of sugarcane and samurai jeans were.  I'm looking for a straight leg cut if that helps any.

Sugar Cane is primarily 47 cut but the SC2009 is probably the closest they have to a more modern straight leg cut. See Selfedge for measurements.

Samurai has a bevy of cuts. S5000VX might work for you. See Blue in Green for measurements.

5EP x SF wouldve fit the bill [w/o even the need to taper]_ if you can still find a pair.

check out Samurai 710 "Blue Shadow", Momo 705BIG, __ you may need to taper if you want a hem under 8.

I dig the APC NS top block, but I want better construction and denim. I'm looking for, like, an ~11" front rise and a ~14" rear rise. Nobody seems to do this, and I don't understand why, because that kind of cut gives you more room for your junk up front while not giving you diaper butt in the rear.

Can anyone offer a review or hearsay about Union Jeans? They're on Gilt today and I'm trying to buy my boyfriend a pair of jeans that fit really well.

do you know his true waist size/thighs/inseam length/etc?
post #18576 of 20866

Close enough, I think. He's very fit, 30.5 waist, and I've been leaning toward 31/31 or 31/32. Everything he currently owns is too baggy.

Do the dry nudie jeans (non-selvedge... the ones for $180-200) fade like regular selvedge raw denim?

I suspect there's not much difference between the selvage and non-selvage Nudies. Nudie denim typically fades relatively quickly in comparison to Japanese denim.

But it's hard to generalize with something like this. Fading is primarily a function of you as an individual and how much you wear your jeans and how active you are in life. Even if you bought $300 Japanese denim and all you did was sit around all day, you'd get no fades. No activity = no fades.

Some of the best fades I have seen are on old guys (cowboys, carpenters, builders, etc) wearing $20 Lees or Wranglers. They aren't worried about selvage, chainstitching, soaking, honeycombs, or any of that stuff. They just wear and wash when needed.

What would be a decent sub $100-ish pair of jeans with a classic fit (I guess, not to tight, not too loose) with, most importantly, a mid rise (I.e at the waist)? Oh and it must have a zip fly. I can't stand a button fly.

Looking for a pair of below £100 black selvedge (possibly raw) denim. Don't have the funds at the moment to be splashing out, and it would be my first pair of coloured selvedge so I have no idea who does that well. Only ones I've seen so far would be Naked and Famous on sale. Uniqlo in the UK only seem to do grey and blue at the moment. Although the light blue instead of the red line selvedge on the grey ones looks pretty cool.

Hey why do all 3sixteen jeans have a 37 inseam? if you are not that size do you have to get them brought up? or am i missing something

post #18584 of 20866

easier production i assume.  depending on where you buy them the seller may offer a free hemming service (ala Blueowl).

post #18585 of 20866

Hey looking for jeans that are a classic straight fit kind of like levi 501s, als ones that are similarly priced. The 501s I've gotten the past 2 weeks are gawdaful in quality and consistency in fit. I mainly just need them for real casual...bit of a trad guy so I'm talking sweater with jeans a boat shoes/bean boots. Also, a good recommendation for selvage would be appreciated (once again under 100 please).
