Can somebody recommend a denim tailor in San Diego or Sacramento area?

if it's not too bad you can just use water and wash off the parts of that are dirty and then let them dry. shouldn't loose too much dye. besides it'll help add to the wear marks on the jean. if you have dark smudges on the pants after drying, you can spot clean again with a little bit of detergent and again air dry. if it's really dirty, then you should just wash them in cold water, inside out using some color safe detergent.

Currently looking for my second pair of raw denim- my first were pure blue japans and theyve turned out better than I couldve imagined. Im leaning towards the Flat Head 2001's for my next pair ( http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=679 ) because I love the texture and slubbiness of flat heads denim, and these measurements are pretty close to my PBJs, but i sort of want a heavier denim (16oz is sick but 19 would be ideal, would also consider heavier), and a button fly. 

 

So im looking for basically a slim straight/straight tapered cut with a leg opening under 8 inches, slubby, ideally around 19oz, button fly. Anyone have any recommendations? Going to swing by blue in green and selfedge this week to try things out, but if i dont find anything ill probably go with the FH2001s. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

at self edge i'd take a look at strike gold 2109/2105 or 3109/3105. they're all slubby denim around 17 oz pre soak. there's also iron heart 301s which is 21 oz. at blueingreen, i'm not as familiar with their stock but samurai has a few options in the 19+ weight like the S710 and S5000 model jeans.

Good call on strike gold, Ill have to try on a pair. 2109 pretty much nails what i was looking for. The samurai 710's are pretty great and fit me very well, just not slubby at all. Gunna take a look at IH301 too. Thanks for the input!

^^ or am I wrong about samurais? Looking for a nice vertical thread fade/slub combo like I got on the PBJs and was under the impression that samurais had more of a smooth sheen, but if im wrong they may be the way to go.

i wouldn't say samurais have a smooth sheen but it's not as slubby as strike gold's denim. i don't have experience with all of their denim fabrics but they've got a fair amount of texture and character.

What length do people think looks best with 501s? What I mean by this is where should the opening rest? resting on the shoe itself or on the shoe with a bit of stack

Waist: 34"
Thigh: 12.75"-13"
Leg opening: 8.25"-8.5"

Usually when a pair of jeans has a 34" waist (typically a size 33 or 32 or even smaller depending on the brand), the corresponding thigh measurement is between 11.5"-12", or maybe 12.25" at the most. I can't seem to find anything bigger in the thigh. Are there any brands out that match what I'm looking for?

Thanks for the suggestion. Do you know how much these typically stretch with wear? Not sure if I should go with a 34 and expect the waist to stretch or if I should size up to 35.

It's personal preference.  I have both and I prefer some stacking after having worn both on a regular basis.

No personal experience but I think it's pretty typical stretching but I'd imagine it's a little different between cone and Japanese denims.

I'm fairly certain it's meant to be true waist measurement (if you wear a 34 get a 34) but can be sized up or down 1 if you prefer a slightly different fit.

There's a thread on page 1 of superfuture and the brand's owner is on it daily so you may wanna check there and even ask him if you need to.

Cool thanks again, I'll check out that superfuture thread. I'm a pretty true 34 so that's probably the best bet for me.

Fwiw I have a pair of their shorts in size 34 and I'm a solid 34 suiting measurement and they fit perfectly. I typically go 32 because shit is always vanity sized and kind of panicked at first about being a 34....
post #19935 of 20698

All right, I'm looking for a pair of heavy (18 oz. + ) raw jeans. I'm a true 31.5" waist, and I'm hoping for at least a 37" inseam. I've got largish thighs from working out, so straight fit (but not anti-fit) would be ideal. Right now I'm wearing Pure Blue Japans in size 31 and they're pretty much perfect; I just want something heavier. I would really love to get a pair of Iron Heart 634s, but the inseam is listed as 34" or 35" (as opposed to most raw jeans, which seem to be more like 37"). Any thoughts?

 

Thanks much in advance!
