I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1278

post #19156 of 20864

Haha^ No not that crazy (btw link is broken but found some after googling) as an example I wear a pair of 3sixteens SL-100x and love them; but for my next denim purchase was wondering if there was anything a tad (1-2") higher and could be thought of as 'a go to.' 

When I say go to I'm thinking something as recommended as the APC NS for new people; but instead the (?) for people desiring a higher rise; something like the rise of odd trousers etc.

Also thanks for the suggestions so far :)

I consider buying a Levi's 503B. I have never heard of this model and I wear 501 almost exclusively. How much it differs from the 501 in terms of figure?

Thanks

Previously owned Nudie Thin Finn Dry Black Coated 31x32 and LOVED the fit, the shiny look after 2 years of wear, and the construction. After 2 years though the crotch is a mess and they're full of holes from getting caught on shit and they're pretty much unwearable.

I'm 5'5" and want to get a similar jean, preferably selvedge, black coated, similar cut to the Thin Finns (or I may get them exactly again). Thoughts and recommends?

We're a little bit more pricey than N&F, ok well a lot more, but we can pull off pretty much any shape & style you want. After a year in business and just about every body size you can imagine, cutting & sewing solid denim is what we do bud...

Anyone know what the sizing on the Acne Ace Cash jeans is like? I wear a 29 in N&F Skinny Guys.

This is an extremely foolish question but can someone explain rise and what difference it makes to me. I've noticed recently all my t-shirts and buttondowns go to either at or past my crouch of my jeans. It looks silly IMO. I am not sagging my pants at all. Although I am 5'7 130lbs so small, I realize this may be simply because my shirts are too long. However I am buying smalls and x-smalls. I was just wondering if my jeans rise could be a factor in this. What difference would I notice between a 9.5 rise opposed to 10.5. Does it affect how low they go or only where they sit on your waist? Does the 10.5 mean you should be wearing them closer to your naval? I'm just confused on the matter. Is this simply a shirt length problem for me? I hope everyone can visualize what I mean. I really don't want to tailor every single shirt I have. Should I be lookin for shorter made t-shirts or can my jeans fit/rise/cut be a factor in this problem? But I'm also just looking to be educated about rise in general.

Rise usually affects where the waistline sits, not where the crotch sits. I'd say it's probably a shirt problem.

I went for a short walk outside today, but it was a bit sloppy. I ended up with a bit of mud up the back of my denim. Right after getting home, I turned them inside out and threw them in the wash (cold, delicate/hand wash [not sure why I did this], Woolite Dark). I hung them to dry, and after drying a little bit, I can see that the stains are still there, and they look like they might have set in pretty good. At this point, what should I do to try to remove the stains? Should I throw them in the wash again on a less gentle cycle; should I take them to a professional cleaner/dry cleaner; or is there something else I can try to remove the stains?

Thanks for any help.

If it is really just mud ... no motor oil or other pollutants ... it should wash off.
It sounds like your machine's wash cycle may be too mild, so I would recommend a more vigorous hand-washing of the lower leg.

+1. The rise is going to affect what waist size you get. Your shirts are simply too long.

Thank you for the clairification. I've measured all of my pants and they are virtually all 9.5. Is this considered a low rise? If I try something with 10.5, does that mean it should sit an inch closer to my belly button? And would I feel a difference/would there be any visual difference?

 

Does anyone know t-shirts made for shorter guys? My go to basic tees have been the $10 target meronas if anyone is familiar. However those, along with other t-shirts I have, all seem to have the problem of being too lengthy.

If you go with a 10.5" front rise, yes, your jeans will sit higher on your waist a inch (pending they fit you in other areas and you're not sagging them).

I don't see what visual difference this would make though if any. Since the crouch will still fall in the same spot. So only the pockets will be higher? Is it just a comfort thing?

it won't. just a matter of where you want your pants sitting

Any recommendations for waxed/black coated jeans?

I know Nudies were recommended previously but they are sold out and I can't afford Dior or Balenciaga. :\
