Anyone know some good brands for washed jeans?

 

I just want a pair of grey washed jeans in a tapered fit. Something with moderate distressing. Kind of like a stone washed effect. 

 

Sort of like this but in grey:

rogue territory is about to drop some of their jeans in a few washes. should be available in the next couple weeks.

If money is not an issue for you , go try on Dior homme, very nice with little stretch, you will love it, just a little distress around the pockets only. 

can be dress up or down.

but if you are one of those guys , who dont pay over 100 for a pair of pants, then head straight to H&M , or Forever 21 men.

saw a few there, for less than 30..

good luck, man

hello, I'm relatively new to raw denim and that, and I could use some advice on what pair to get next.

I had a pair of APC new rescues that I wore consistently for ~6 months without washing and I enjoyed the process of watching them fade, but wasn't blown away by them in any regard. After the 6 month mark the crotch suddenly and spectacularly blew out. I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive pair (at or under $200) made of pretty heavy denim that is well-suited to a more athletic (read: less skinny) shape.

I have been looking at a pair of Raleighs, but am not heartset on anything yet, except that I'll skip getting APCs again.

Cheers.

What sort of activities were you doing?? If you are looking for Raw or just good quality denim under 150, I would try Wallace and barnes ( not j crew denim) .
They are pretty well made in your price range .
Or try on EBay.
Other higher quality brands usually the Japanese denim will go way above your price range if they are raw . Remember to size up if you are going to try latter.

i have to say wallace and barnes are very well made. You can get them in japanese or cone denim, theyre chain stitched, have hidden rivets, heavier pocket bags and just a nice attention to detail

The crotch on my 501 shrink to fits is about to blow, should I patch them before they blow or wait until they go and then patch them?

Thanks. I've been looking at these a lot since your recommendation and I am quite enamored.

These sound really good too, based on your reviews. However, a google search for 'wallace and barnes' yields almost exclusively jcrew results. Did you mean to simply avoid mistakenly buying jcrew denim while getting them from jcrew's site, or is there a completely separate wallace and barnes sales website that I seem to be missing?

in any case, I really appreciate the help.

Wallace & Barnes is from J Crew. It's almost like a higher end brand within the company and they usually make items inspired from vintage workwear/ outerwear. Similar to how RRL is a part of Ralph Lauren 

post #20066 of 20888
who makes good light-toned grey jeans for $150?
post #20067 of 20888
Oh no no , you can only buy Wallace and Barnes jeans in the J crew Stores.
Please go and give them a try. I was merely giving you a heads up cause I don't want you to get side tracked and ending up getting a pair of j crew jeans which are made in china ( Wallace and Barnes are made in USA) and half the price.
I have a few pairs of them too they have great slim fit style call 484.

Anyone have experience with Rogue Territory Stantons? Any comments on the fit?

it fits pretty slim and the rise is a little higher than other mid rise jeans. the silhouette is great and fits comfortably.
