Try and sell them in the Marketplace

You'll get more there than on eBay 🐱

Looking to step up my jeans game. Best fitting current pair is entry level APC NS. Also have KMW, Big John, rag & bone, none of which work for me fit wise + some styling issues. Looking for high quality jap. selvedge, med. to med. heavy weight, med. low rise. Not so set on sanforized vs. non, but fit & fit predictability are paramount, so unsanforized may be a tougher sell. Looking for mod. slim, mod. taper, nothing extreme.

Any recs or at least a direction? Addtnl specs I need to fill in?

Keep in mind that with wear unsanforized denim will form to your body better than sanforized, take measurements of your favorite fitting pair of jeans using the Blue in Green Soho method and that way you will be able to tell if a pair of unsanforized denim will shrink to work with you. I personally prefer it, it fits better, has nicer/cleaner fades, and is usually darker with a tighter weave, but that's just my personal opinion, I have sanforized as well and like them too, and others would go with sanforized cuz it's true, it does take the guess work out of the equation.

This is a great suggestion for pair of jeans, they are extremely dark because they have a black weft, and produce vibrant blue fades. The 0701's are great too, they are unsanforized but one washed, so you get the denim that hasn't been through the sanforizing process that is already shrunk for you and have the standard blue warp/natural weft. Also try Pure Blue Japan XX-013's.

Thanks guys. Will look into both pairs, and take suggestions/ info under advisement.

I know this may be a longshot but has anyone on here tried dying a selvedge pair of jeans? Im thinking about possibly doing so in the future, and I am wondering will the selvedge seams turn into the dye color or will they remain unaffected.

My plain black saint Laurent jeans are one of my favorite purchases, I love them very much

Don't worry, the Selvedge line won't be affected🐱
