I bought a pair of LVC's for from Barney's, but my favorite jean are a pair of Levi 501 shrink-to-fit's that I bought for $50.

Hello guys,

I'm looking for a high end black selvedge pair of jean that doesn't fade.
The 3 sixteens ST-220X seems to be a good choice but I was just wondering if you have other models in minds.

Thanks

Is tapering from the inseam something any tailor can do or is it worth shipping a pair to Denim Doctor/Denim Therapy/(other better suggestions)?

I'm looking for a pretty modest taper (about 0.5 - 1") but I think I've reconciled myself to the fact that this pair needs it. They fit perfectly everywhere else. TIA

I have a pair from N&F and I've never wore it. 

It's kind of like a weird charcoal tint. I don't know what to do with it.

I had a pair of black Levi's with white weft that I never wore for the same reason... I was going to try overdying them black but ended up selling them. You should do it.

Hi. I have a pair of jeans (well they are actually chino trousers, but anyway) that I would like to have tapered. The thing is, I have done that once before and I was not very happy with the result, the outline of the jeans was no longer straight, but it had an angle at knee level (as expected).

 

Is it possible to taper jeans from the crotch (if it's the inseam they are cutting) or from the waist (if it's the outer seam) for a reasonable price? So that the hem ends up with the desired width but the outline is still straight.

 

I hope I made myself clear.

A good tailor should be able to taper from both the inseam and outseam, thus avoiding the "angle" you refer to. Be sure to specify that's how you want it done (I assume double the seam cutting/sewing will cost more, but what can you do?)

I have a pair of lined Levi 508s that I haven't washed since I got them! It's been probably a month now with pretty frequent wear. Spent a few days down in NO for Mardi Gras and my pants are starting to feel a little icky. They have a few stains. Could I just spot wash and febreeze? Really want to try washing these as little as possible

You're overthinking it. They're dirty? Soiled? Wash them.

whats wrong with being angled from both sides? itll conform to your body better

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a great fitting pair of raw denim for us men of smaller stature? I'm talking like 5'7", 130lbs with a 28in waist? I'm not huge on super skinny jeans a la Nudge Thin Finns because I have chicken legs, so I think I look silly in those type of jeans. I refer to that as the carrot top look. I'm after a slim fitting jean, though.

I'm stopping by BiG and SE tomorrow in NYC, so if I should look out for any particular brand and cut, please let me know.

Could check out APC Petite Standards. Not totally sure on the waist, but you could give it a shot. Other than that, just look at any slim fits in Naked + Famous, Momotaro, 3Sixteen, etc. etc.

You must have been going really, really hard in them. I've had my NS since October and haven't washed them yet. But yeah, as Argentino said, just wash them if they're turning a little gnarly. Nobody wants to smell that.

After my second day wearing my UB121 jeans the top button feels a little loose (which I've read is common unfortunately), is there anything I can do to prevent it from popping off? Or am I doomed?

 

The jeans fit well btw, I can button them up easily so it's not them being too small.

I might just do that. I don't mind the color that much, but the shinyness of N&F's bright wefts just lights the fuck up in the daytime. I wish these had a gray weft, they'd be perfect. Another option would be to wax the jeans and just have a really cool waxed dark gray pair. Tough decision. It just doesn't feel black enough to wear as a black pair of jeans...

It's just a normal tack button right? Hitting it with a hammer once or twice should tighten it up. Or just replace it.
