Anyone have any idea how Nicolas Andreas taralis denim fits?  TTS? According to true waist?  Not sure if to size down or stay TTS.  Thanks in advance!

Other suggestions on durable slim fit jeans under about 50 bucks are welcome.

Yes, I got a pair of the 36MWZ (it is the new version of the fit you describe--the older version was 936DEN I believe.) I really like the 36s...new denim, slight changes in the design, better seams. I had a pair of the original 13MWZ (regular fit, older version of the denim) I gave up on them as I didn't like the fit and the color. these though, I like much better. I got them a tad long so I alternate with cuffing and stacking with boots. So far, so good. I got a pair of LVC 1947 501s the day before and I have been wearing them on back to back days.

They are definitely worth spending small amount of money it will cost you--plus you may find they fit the bill quite well.

Hi. I gave my first pair of raw denim their first wash, 9-10 months later (basically because I had a crotch blowout and I wanted it repaired). The thing is that some fraying has appeared in the honeycombs which was not there before. I washed the jeans alone in 30 degrees (Celsius, obviously) water, inside out.

 

What did I do wrong?

I am a 31 waist and all i see are 10+" in jeans like iron Heart, Nudie, N&F. ect.

Now I do see plenty of lowrise with a rise of about 8' in True Religion, Abercrombie ect. Just can't find a good cut in the quality jeans as all seem to have front rise from 9.5"-10.5" and cuts like a Levis 501 jean. Both of which I can't stand.

Somet.

Holes forming in the creases of the honeycombs is super common. Hand washing them probably would have helped lessen the effect.

I just got a new pair of APCs in the mail. There are creases horizontally due to the way it was shipped, folded up length on length, and also a fairly deep crease down the inseam as well.

Question: Should I just wear and wait for these creases to 'melt away' - or should I somehow iron or otherwise get rid of them before wearing?

Same here. I've been wearing my APC jeans every other day for a couple weeks and the crease is starting to go away. You should also try to hang them in a way that doesn't reinforce the crease; I hang mine from the middle belt buckle in the back and that seems to help.

These are an old pair of Levi's Hesher. The upside: I get to buy some new jeans. Doesn’t have to be excessively high waisted, well at least not what I consider so, some on here will probably differ on what excessively high rise is. Think 501 type rise, but not low rise.
- Straight or potentially slim straight fit. But no skinnier. I generally find that on many jeans, especially those that veer a little skinnier, it’s often too loose at the waist relative to the thighs.
- Non-redline selvage. Green/Purple/Orange etc. would be fine. Because. Well, just because why not.
- Zip fly preferred, though this is the point I'm most willing to bail on.

Any advice much appreciated.

Mostly a shameless bump of my own question. But perhaps I managed to define a mythical white whale of jeans. So how about just this: recs for mid-rise selvage zip fly jeans?

LVC '54 501z.

Maybe Imperial Shearers. Not sure about the fly on that one.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will try on the 501z. Shearer looks to be "intense taper" which isn't really my style.

Yeah it means your jeans were too dirty.  Dirt breaks up the fibers.  

 

Gentle hand wash with mild soap every few months won't lose too much indigo and would have prevented that

Loads of options. Going along similar lines, Civilainaire has a slim or regular fit with yellow line selvage or for a bit more Jean Shop has the Rocker with orange selvage and details (literally wearing a pair right now.) They're from the same family/designers, so the fits are comparable and the denim is nice (Japanese and arguably nicer than the standard Cone you'd get from LVC.)

FWIW, the zip on the Civilianaire is decent but it's smooth-as-silk Riri on the Jean Shop.

If you throw out a price range, I could give you more brands but those are two immediate favorites in the mid to higher ballpark.
