Never go bootcut. Slim would be the best fit. Apc petit new standards are of high quality.

Thanks.

Another question: I usually have to get jeans with inseam of 29. 30 will most likely make me have to cuff, which i prefer not to. If I cannot find jeans with 29 inseam, should i buy one with 30 inseam then hem it? Would it look weird on slim jeans, which have tapering near the ankle?

Does anyone have a picture of a pair of indigo jeans with black weft worn in? I'm curious to see how the wear patterns would look.

Glad to help. And I assure you, they will shrink back to their tagged (original size), the main thing though is to make sure to wear a belt if you don't want this happening again and having to continue repeating this process. High quality selvage jeans are usually not woven very tight. Having a loose weave can cause them to be more prone to stretch. A belt will stop (minimize) this from occurring.

You need to find a pair of slim/skinny straight leg jeans, therefore there won't be a taper (or a very, very subtle taper), that won't enlarge the hem (ankle) of the jean if you were to get them altered (hemmed), so they will still look sharp with your oxfords (and I second the notion, going bootcut would be the exact opposite of this and would be a horrible look). What is your price range? because depending on that, I can suggest various options for you that could possibly be better than APCs.

Thanks! That doesn't look as unusual as I thought it would.

Thank you for your advice. My price range is within $100 - 150. I believe I can get good quality with this range.

 

Besides the reasonable price range, I would also prefer a brand that either offers free shipping/free return (or charge inexpensively) or has a physical store so that I can visit and try out the material and size first. I used to buy a few pairs online and when they arrived, they were totally not to my expectation. If the two features above do not work, I can go to a tailor to get measurement and ask the customer service for the best fit option or custom tailoring.

 

I live in Pennsylvania, US.

In that price range I would try http://theunbrandedbrand.com/products/ub101-skinny-fit-indigo-selvedge or Naked & Famous "skinny guy" fit. APCs are more than you want to spend. You should be able to find some retailers that carry either one of these brands in Pennsylvania. Also there's http://williamsburggarment.com/categories/men/jeans/slim-jeans.html ... not in PA but great jeans and a great price. You should just measure your favorite fitting jeans using this method and then ask whatever denim supplier you chose to give you measurements and see if they work for you.

Thank you.

 

I am willing to spend some more for APCs if I can get the best fit for my body. Comfort comes first!

I am not sure if the jeans I have now has the best fit. Can I get measured by a tailor and use that measurement to buy jeans?

On a side note, how fit should jeans be? I have a jeans that feels very tight at the crotch; I cannot raise my legs up to my hip while standing; I cannot bend down at the back to tight my shoes. It seems that this jeans is too tight?

A tailor can take your measurements, and that can give you a rough idea of what your rise, waist, and inseam should be, but he won't be able to suggest a jean size or type for you, because that is up to personal preference (straight, slim, skinny etc..) and brand differences in cuts. It seems like you need jeans with a higher rise and a fuller cut, especially if comfort comes first for you. Thats going to be difficult to find taking into consideration you want a slim tapered ankle and need to hem your jeans to a 29. You're probably best with something that is a blend (98% cotton, 2% elastane for example) if you want more mobility while maintaining a slimmer cut. Denim isn't the most forgiving fabric, its tough and durable. I am not much of a help when it comes to denim blends, personally only wearing 100% cotton. Naked and Famous makes some stretch selvage denim that may work for you, that's the extent of my stretch denim knowledge in your price range. I know Dior and SLP make a 98%/2% jean but thats way more than you want to spend. But honestly you'll need to find a compromise between comfortability with vanity, because to pull off the look you want and do it well, your gonna need a slim fitting jean.

I am interested in this one, and looking around for more option. Is there any other website/place to get N&F jeans besides this site?

http://shop.tateandyoko.com/collections/naked-and-famous-slimguy/products/naked-famous-slim-guy-solid-black-selvedge

 

Another question: I think I have small lower leg. Therefore, when I wear straight jeans, although the thigh feels fit, the lower leg part feels kinda flaring, especially near the ankle. This issue can be seen clearly if I wear oxford shoes. I am wondering if there is any jean style that taper around the ankle? More complicatedly, if I hem the jeans, the ankle tapering kinda loses effect :brick:

Yes, the Nordstrom website has a surprisingly large selection of Naked and Famous. And as far as your second issue is concerned, the only option I can think of, in your specific case, is to buy a pair of jeans you like and fit well in the top block and through the leg, and then have them hemmed and then have them tapered by a tailor who specializes in denim work. You need a slim straight jean, not a slim tapered jean. The way to tell the difference is to compare the knee measurement to the hem of the jean. If there is barely any difference, then they are a straight leg pair of jeans and hemming them will not cause the ankle to flare. With slim tapered denim, the more you hem the wider the leg opening gets, and since you're hemming so much off the jean, you'll end up with a really wide flaring leg. Thus since your hemming your jeans to 29 inches, unless your finding a pair with a 30 or 32 inch inseam, such as RRL or LVC, then your going to get a much wider leg. I measured a pair of jeans I have (Dior Homme MIJ) and their hem which is 19cm (7 inches) then 5 inches up and across there, and it was almost an inch difference, so that gives you an idea of how much the size of the hem will be affected on tapered jeans. You'll wind up with jeans that fit over your shoes completely not rest at the top of them, slim at the ankle like is what seems to be your desired look.

Looking for a pair of black jeans. Deciding between RT Stealth SK, Left Field Black Maria Chelsea, 3sixteen st-220x, N&F sulfur, and Acne max cash. Any other brands for slim tapered? I've wide hips so it looks like the workwear models would fit the best. They're all around the same price. Thanks.

Are you looking for fades or for them to stay dark? The 3sixteens are nice, they're the only ones I'm familiar with as in I've tried them on and they're a good fit and I have very big thighs. Honestly don't think you could go wrong with that selection, and they are most likely the highest quality of denim of your picks so far. You can try Pure Blue Japans NC-005 which is a black weft and warp that is dyed with a non soluble dye so no matter how many washes they go through, they still stay black (if that is what you want). Those would probably be the best out of all the choices so far, however the thighs can fit a little slim on PBJ's so I would check measurements if you were gonna look into those, they are a slim straight fit though. If your looking for a black weft and warp that will fade, get your hands on a pair of Iron Heart 555 SBG's, the thighs can be a little snug on those as well, but they produce excellent wear patterns and fades, high stress areas and vertically down the thighs fade into a silvery/gray hue, love my pair. But if you want the best fitting, ultimate, slim tapered black denim and money is not an option, go with the Dior Homme Raw MIJ 19cm cut. I have big thighs and mine fit perfectly. The Saint Laurents may be equally as good, but I haven't tried a pair on. Hope this helps.
