I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1283

Looking for a really nicely washed pair of jeans, similar to these sikis. Need something light like this for spring/summer. Would prefer if the top block fit slim (not skinny) but to taper heavy past the knees, like to a 19cm hem or smaller. Any ideas? besides diors.

Where should I look for sales/used on these jeans?

Basically Strike Gold, Iron Heart, or Flat Head?

Self Edge has one small sale per year or so. That's about it.

Been wearing Levis York Selvedge for couple weeks now (3 wear per week), should I wash them now to speed up the whiskering and fading? I soaked them once in woolite dark after wearing them in 90+ degree weather.

you speed up the fading by wearing them

I've recently tried on a pair of Pike Brothers jeans and they really tickled an itch for new denim. They were just about perfect in all aspects, including especially the price, and I would have bought them if it were not for the fact that the smallest size was still about a size and a half too big. And sanforized, bummer.

So after a lot of online research, I think I know what I want.

requirements:
indigo raw selvedge
at least 15oz, more is welcome.
29" waist post stretch
at leat 34" inseam
leg opening max 7"
smooth texture

I'm not a revivalist, but I like the more (quasi-)heritage oriented brands and looks rather than the more novelty fashion brands you see out there in the proper jeans world.

my budget is 170 pounds tops, but that also has to include shipping and taxes.
thoughts? Hints?

I'm having a hard time finding a pair of slim jeans which actually fit my legs though the whole pant. Currently my best fitting jeans are my H&M drain which I sized up 2" in the waist, they fit really well except in the waist/hips/butt where they are too large. I also tried on a pair of Levi's 520s in a 31/34 which fit me really well, but they don't have a raw version and the calf could be an inch larger in circumference, but mostly the fact that there is no raw is keeping me from getting them. Also, I feel the 508s are just a bit too large in the calf.

My lower-body measurements are:

 

Waist (~4 inches below my bellybutton, where I like my pants to sit): 36"

Hips: 38"

Thigh (upper): 22"

Knee: 15.75"

Calf (high insertion): 14.5"

Ankle: 8.6"

Inseam is usually 34"

 

The main problem is that if I'm sizing after my calves, the thigh is like spandex and if I size after my thigh there is way too much fabric around my calf. I'm aware that I can taper the calf in and I've done that to a couple of pairs, but I would like to see if there was actually a brand which fit me OTR.

Just got a pair of Levi's Made and Crafted Tack Selvage for $55 off ebay. I think the color is ecru... it's natural, unbleached denim. I love the fit on the Levi's Tack.

 

 

@prae, go through denim websites like Blue Owl or Self Edge w/measurements and figure it out...

I just picked up a pair of Paulrose Heritage off eBay and the seller hot soaked them to shrink and the waist shrunk more than expected.  Everything fits except the waist; I cannot get the last buttons up.  If I could stretch them a half inch I could get them on to wear it in.  Any suggestions or am I fucked?

You could stretch the waist by hand. Tailors used to do it all the time.

Hi all, I'm looking for a black solid, simple, well made pair of jeans. Also looking for the same criteria in white. A clean look is key, so no extravagant back pocket stitching or distressing/whiskering is preferable. Any suggestions?
