The D# jeans are top notch Japanese meticulous quality. The jeans are made in Okayama, Japan literally inside a train station! They've got a whole setup with vintage machines and all. The station is called Ibara Station... Ibara is a famous small city in Okayama prefecture where many denim mills are based. D# is a project created by the Ibara Apparel Organization to show off the skill and craft of Japanese jeans making.

This is a soup restaurant right next to where they make the jeans inside the station!

In terms of a fit pic, I'll go see if I can snap something quickly and post it later...

The only real killer is that having my pants skin-tight against my thighs makes me look ridiculous.



Thanks for any guidance you can provide rawdenim pros!



Look at the Naked & Famous Weird Guy in a size 32 or so. Should be able to fit the bill with your actual waist measuring 34.5. The tagged size on any given pair is irrelevant, so you know for the future. Look for cuts based on measurement. The thighs in the weird guy cut should be enough for you. Also, if you purchase them through forum-affiliate Blue Owl you'll get free shipping because they're over $100, and Jay (owner) can chainstitch them for free with your purchase to bring them down to a 32.5 inseam (although I'd recommend slightly longer for a bit of leeway). His user name is Jay-D. Give him a pm or an email, and he'll help you out.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy -

thanks for the pictures. I look forward to seeing any fit pics you might be able to provide.

 

I'm particularly interested in how the denim and construction quality compares to more familiar brands, ie are these on the same level as Oni/Samurai/Flat Head. It's hard to make a buying decision because there's not much of this kind of info available on the forum (at least that I can find)

post #18814 of 20635

Suggestions on "double black" jeans with 30 true waist (after stretch), ~10.5 thigh, <7 leg opening? Want to get nice stacks.

very cool... I am interested in this as well... hope someone else can provide more info.

Anyone here able to tell me the brand and model of the pair of jeans in this photo?
post #18818 of 20635
I'm searching for some new denim, and was hoping to get some tips from you guys. I'm looking for something with a very slim leg, either tapered or straight (skinny leg is good, so long as it's not "second skin" skinny). Price <$200.

I've essentially been wearing Uniqlo and other cheap brands for the past year after going through several APCs and being unhappy with them (both New Standards, bought at same time). Wore the APCs for about six months regularly, and got essentially no fading whatsoever aside from some very subtle lightening at the wallet and knees. I believe I sized down two and they rapidly got really bagged out and lost their stacks and any potential for whiskering at the thighs, so I quickly got to the point where I didn't want to wash them, but they didn't fit me at all how I wanted them to so I really wasn't enjoying wearing them. I'd like something a bit less finicky, if it exists...or maybe I ought to try the New Cures and size further down?

probably just size down correctly. apcs are known to fade pretty fast. the new cures or PS are more tapered/skinny than the NS so might be better option. 

post #18820 of 20635
if you like the general fit of the APC New Standards but want to try denim a little nicer in quality you should look at the 3sixteen SL line. the fit is very similar to New Standard. 3sixteens dont stretch nearly as much tho. maybe only size down 1 if at all.
post #18821 of 20635
I'm not looking for something similar to New Standard. I've been gravitating toward much narrower legs than the NS since I first got them. I'll check out the 3sixteens, thanks.

Will also go try a pair of PS and NCs, bik, but the more I read the more I'm leaning toward avoiding APCs altogether due to the massive stretching. I don't mind some stretching if it's a pair I can toss in the wash once every week or two to shrink back down, but I'm really hoping to avoid this and find some that maintain their fit better than the APCs.

I know nothing about jeans. I have a pair of Levi's 513s that fit great but I can't seem to find them around 50 bucks anymore in the colors I like. I've tried 514s, too baggy on the calves and ankles, and 511s are too snug. I've got some 508s on the way but they don't appear to really be my fit, got them on a good discount from Macy's online so they have a good return policy if they aren't for me. I'm an average build but slim guy, not exactly skinny. 190lbs a hair under 6'. What brands should I be looking at that are around the $50 price range? I can maybe go up towards 60-70 but no higher, and even that's pressing it since I could get the Levi's I am used to for around that price. Yeah, I know this is a laughable budget since around here folks can spend upwards of 200 on fashionable denim.

uniqlo if they have your size? the rise might be low though.

Same size here. Stick w/ Levis if you've found a fit you like but aren't yet prepared to splurge big. Entry level is about $100 here while on sale.

You already know what works for you - no need to change.

i got a pair of levis 1947s and i was told two very different opinions on how to treat them. i was told by one salesmen that i should soak them no question, or wash before wearing, he said i had to do it or the denim would fall apart altogether. the other salesmen said it was ok to wear them for an extended period before washing without soaking them first. so whats the deal?
