Fair warning, taking the waist in three sizes is going to mess with the pockets big time, among other things. I don't think any tailors worth their salt would even take the job

Yeah that's exactly what I meant. Thanks for the suggestion, no way I'd fit into that thigh measurement though. Still on the lookout for a jean with indigo warp/weft + contrast stitching with at least an 11.5" thigh measurement at Size 30-32.

Are Acne Raw jeans a good pair of denim for $200. It seems as though most of the questions on here are related to the sizing. I own a pair of J Brand, APC, and Nudie. How do they compare?

Are all jeans from the same mills the same in turns of quality of fabric? I was wondering because a lot of kickstarter brands like Gustin and Rpmwest are making their jeans from Cone Mills and Nihon Menpu.Yet Gustin and Rpmwest are a fraction of the cost of these notable brands.

no. within the same mill, there are fabrics of varying quality and quantities as well as exclusive and custom fabrics for certain brands. as far as costs, there is also other factors outside of the fabric used such as the construction, other materials (pocket bags, type of leather patch, type of hardware, etc. part of the business model of gustin and rpmwest is the whole cutting out the middle man thing so that'll add to the costs of the jean.

Interesting. So not as good as apc.

In terms of quality I would say no, but with with acne you're paying for the cut more than anything else.

I bought a pair of sanforized jeans between 11 and 12 oz.  I know that the relatively lighter weight denim won't produce the same contrast fades as a heavier, even 14 oz. weight, but I'm still very much curious how it'll turn out.  Does anyone have any photos of faded ~11.5 oz. denim?

 

Regardless of pictures, what should I expect with this pair down the road?  Thanks!

it'll still fade and if you wear them pretty hard, you can still get pretty great looking fades. APC jeans are around 12oz and there are plenty of high contrast fades

Wow. So the quality isn't there so your just paying for fit with acne?
