Finally wore out my last pair of Epaulet denim. I'm looking for jeans with a similar slim fit, high rise, tapered leg to smaller bottom openings. Any suggestions?
post #18723 of 20864

i was looking to venture into higher end denim than my usual made in the USA levi's that have been my standard for years.  i was wondering what brands and cuts i can find that are similar to this. jeans are made in the usa 511s.  i haven't taken measurements yet of the jeans, but was wondering where a good place to start was. excuse my dirty mirror and lazy dog.

I just bought my first pair of "good' jeans. They are the RRL Low Straights. They are "once soaked", not washed but not raw either.

I had a couple of questions and was wondering if I could get some help.

- Will these fade with use the same way a pair of raw denim will?

- If so, should I avoid putting things in my front pockets?

- Should I hang them from the belt loops after every use?

Thanks for your time!

Leg Opening: 7 inches

So i went to self edge in NYC and bought myself some 3sixteens. Im loving the fit and everything, and the waist feels slightly snug, but not overly so for brand new raw denim. However Ive noticed the top too buttons on the fly starting to get loose. Ive used a small wrench to try and press them back down, but Im not sure if this will work long term. Will this have fix the problem or should I contact 3sixteen and ask them about it? Ive only owned the jeans for like 3 days now.

They certainly will fade, but won't fade as quick or as strong of a contrast in raw denim. 

Honestly, I have raw denim myself and I don't worry about putting objects into the front pockets. The jean will stretch to accommodate whatever it is, which I'm assuming is a phone. I have worn a pair of jeans everyday for 6 months (except for the odd day I will soak them/freeze) and I haven't had any problems except maybe a few whiskers sitting a little lower than the other half.

Hanging would help them dry, which would prevent from any odors from forming.

Thanks for your reply!

Would it be a good idea for me to buy a second pair of the same jeans? I really like them. Best jeans I've bought so far.

Or should I buy a pair of the rigid? Maybe I can wear the rigid for more casual occasions, so they can fade, and wear the once-washed for more formal occasions.

I'm assuming the RRL rigid are raw?

That's a good fit. You should just wear those into the ground, get some good fading, then buy another pair of denim. So you will have a well worn pair and a new pair.

Sorry, thought my post was fixed. They are both raw so they will fade more or less like raw jeans.

As for variety, I usually don't buy the same jeans unless it's more of a classic fit (eg Levis). It's just so if I need something to fit what I'm wearing it's there for me. Rigids are slim so they will work for a more fashion forward look. However, I definitely wear my jeans in that pattern with my slims for everyday, and my straights for night-outs.

My Uniqlo S001 are about to die out. I'm starting on my Nudie Average Joe's. I have to buy a new pair. Budget is about $200. Which is better, 3Sixteen or APC's?

What's the wisdom on narrower belts with jeans?

 

1.5" seems to be the most popular size, but I'm interested in this 1.25" belt in a vibrant reddish tan color.

 

 

 

I personally think 1.5" belts look bulky on jeans that are tapered and form-fitting.  Also, the only review for this belt on the Orion website reported that the color is more intense in person, so I'm thinking less is more.

i have to agree with you. imo, 1.25 is the perfect width belts.
