I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1286

post #19276 of 20698

First real raw jeans (well, almost, more of that later).

 

Brands I've been looking at: Rogue Territory, 3sixteen, APC, Naked&Famous, Tellason and Raleigh maybe

 

I have N&F Weird Guy Chinos in size 30, about 4-5 months of use and pretty much the perfect fit. Measurements can be found here and since the RT Stanton has pretty much the same measurements I thought it would fit the same.

 

I bought RT Stantons in size 30 but after two weeks of use they've stretched out far too much (extra material around waist/ass and top part of thighs, mid-thigh and downwards is ok, but would like a slimmer fit overall).

 

I'm looking to get either Stantons in size 28 or 29 (which one?) or some similar cut from 3sixteen.

I'm not sure if it is because of synthetic dyes or just the way the fabric is woven, but black jeans usually seem to fade evenly to a duller black, instead of aging with character, with lighter patches in places like the knees and darker areas near the seams, like jeans made of indigo denim.

Is Denim Doctors LA still the recommended go-to for repairs? A quick search only yields this sad little blog, last updated in 2009: http://denimdoctor.blogspot.com/

Alternatively, is there someone else worth checking out who does mail-order repair work?

^ Denim Therapy out of NYC is what I use.  They do chainstitch hemming and I liked their work tapering selvedge denim.  Check them out.

Many thanks, I'll check them out. Have you had them do any repair work?
post #19281 of 20698

Not yet, but the only gripes I've ever heard with them involve their pricing.  Since you have to send them the jeans and then they let you know how much it will cost for repairs, you can get stuck paying for postage and then getting an expensive quote.

Good to know, thanks.
post #19283 of 20698
Just thought people would like to know, the tailor shop I work at is now offering chain-stitch hemming and alterations.... Quick turn around time, decent pricing... The shop is located near York university, but I'm located downtown Toronto and can arrange pick up and drop off

If you have any questions or are interested please feel free to contact me through the form and I can give you more info

Thanks, Jason.

How much cm/inch of stretching out should I expect for pair of jeans with 5 % Elastain in it?

so wearing a pair of unbranded 201s and the fit was perfect but now my thighs are getting too big from lifting. looking for something cheap being a poor college student. thinking about either 301 slim straights (and just dealing with that 8.2 leg opening shog[1].gif) or maybe waiting til gap selvedge goes on sale. the only thing is I cant find measurements for the gap denim anyway, looking for thigh and leg opening. if anyone could help itd be appreciated. for reference im a 5'9 and 153lb. planning on bulking til 160 and my thighs went from being 20 inches to 21.1 inches. might hit 22 inches over the summer and my unbrandeds have 11 inch thighs across. sorry if being too specific

Anybody familiar with denim from Japan Blue? Bout to kop a new pair of Japan Blue JB0206 and was wondering how they compare to apc's new cure.

Pulled some info from contextclothing and blueowl and they do seem quite alike.

Not sure how accurate the given measurements are and I can't use my new cure as a reference since they've been worn in.

Thinking of getting a deep indigo as my next raw denim. Who all make a good one? Know only of Momotaro right now, any other options?
