I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1303

post #19531 of 20857

Looking for some dark jeans that are good for dressing up or down. I'm 18 years old, 5'8" and 120lbs so obviously pretty skinny. My waist is 27 which sucks because the minimum for most designers is 28, so I'm looking for a 28 that tends to run small. (I've found Joe fits the bill). 

 

Main 3 things:

 

Dark wash - no frills, no exaggerated fades, just a good clean dark pair 

Slim cut - Straight slim fit is super important since I"m skinny. 

Soft - The softer the better. Some 7 for all mankinds can be pretty freaking soft. Joe as well. Not into the raw denim game 

 

What do you guys think?

Why not get Joe's?

Whats the idea behind ounces in jeans? Lets say one jean is 10 oz, does that mean its softer thinner and cooler for summerwear, as opposed to lets say 13 oz?

Doesn't necessarily mean softer, but it is thinner and like you said would be better for warmer weather. Believe it or not just a few ounces makes a huge difference.

I'm after some black jeans that fit like my APC PS. Got some 511's today in size 30W 34L to get a bit of stacking. I think they look too loose compared to my APC's. Maybe getting a 30/32 would help that. Are the Uniqlo skinnys skinnier? If not, anyone recommend a decent pair? Needs to have a narrow leg opening too!

Thanks

dont think getting a shorter jean will help you too much there. if you need skinnier than 511s, levis does offer the 510. if your budget is under $100, there are selvedge denim brands like Bravestar Denim that offers a skinny fit for less than $100.

I really like the fit of the petit standard but I want a higher rise, are there any other brands out there that offer that fit <$200

Thanks. The budget doesn't necessarily have to be less than $100. I've found some Acne jeans that I like the look of;

Anyone have experience with either of these? i.e how to size? Do they have a narrow leg opening?

Never had to repair any of my jeans so far, but one of my APC's are getting pretty thin around the crotch. Anyone have recommendations for patching/repair in Los Angeles?
post #19540 of 20857
Self Edge Los Angeles should be alright.

Or Denim Dr or Ruff Cut. Have used both (for alterations not repair) with good results

Hey guys, so I finally got around to getting a pair of APC's. Here they are (tagged 28 PS; I'm 5'8, ~123 lbs. if it matters):

Now I've read that being able to button them all the way up new is usually a sign of not having sized down enough. I've also read that if they fit perfectly when new, that they'll just stretch out enormously and it won't work out in the long run.

Are APC's stretching ability largely exaggerated, or should I just get some 27's?


Right now, they were a little tight in the top block, but nothing that really bothered me. They were also a little roomy in the thighs, but that's probably because I'm too short for the taper to really work out?

You should size down one more for the ps. The waist stretches at least 1 to 2 sizes.
post #19544 of 20857
Alternatively you could try new cures.. They're more suited for v slim people like yourself.

APCs do tend to stretch more. i would expect about 1-2 sizes. it depends on what fit you're looking for. for a regular slim fit, then you should be fine as long as you wear a belt. if you want a really fitted slim look then you'll need to size down one more especially if you think that it's a little roomy in the thighs right now. Tapering generally starts at the knee so it wouldnt really affect how the thigh area fits.
