Did at least learn espadrilles are also called alpargatas.

I had only known them as such

I'm looking at some 19 oz Elephant 3's. They're a 32.5 waist. I'm a 33.5. Would I be foolish buying them?

post #20781 of 21424
Yes you would

Damn

Saw some nice selvedge at a good price but their smallest size was a good 1-2 inches big at the waist. Everything else fits well though. Would it be worth getting it altered at the waist? Or is that a sin to do on jeans?

Jean waists do not alter as effectively as trousers.

They don't have the same overlapping split waistband/seat. However, I imagine darts can be put in below each kidney from a skilled tailor. That would only affect the waist and not the seat.

Is unsanforized the the same as unwashed? If so, will the waist circumference shrink after the first wash?

I hate to follow with more noob questions, but I'm wondering if there was anything that ranked durability of raw denim jeans. How do Naked and Famous compare? I'd like to buy something as durable as possible, and it's impossible to tell from pictures here.

 

Does N&F have a reputation for durability? Is a certain brand known for being bulletproof?

"unsanforized" refers to not having been steamed or something like that (manufacturers will do this to get the majority of a jeans' "shrink" out)

all raw denim hasn't been washed (hence their being called "raw")

unsanforized jeans will shrink considerably during their first soak, not wash (you're supposed to soak them as soon as you get them, before even wearing them)

moreso than the brand, i think it depends more on the weight of the denim (you want to look for stuff 18 oz.+, i think)

but of course, different jeans within the same weight from different manufacturers can also be constructed differently and with more/less quality, so there's that too...


if you want something that's of reputable quality and durable, look at Iron Heart or Japanese brands

N&F is moreso known for their fabrics and unique makeups. Durability is not their strongest suit. Japanese biker/repro brands like Iron Heart will be your best bet
