Looking for mod. slim, mod. taper, nothing extreme.

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

I know you're not overly keen on unsanforized, but i'd recommend samurai s003jp. Slim fitting, and the taper isn't too extreme, quite wide compared to my APC PS. I also have the Samurai 710's which I quite like as well, top quality jeans!

 

As for sizing, I went true to size on the 710's and down one size on the s003jp. The next pair of s003jp I buy I will be getting them true to size, they are just slightly tight on my thighs, but nothing too major. 

 

I think you might lean towards the s003jp as the 710's are a bit heavier weight at 19oz where as the s003jp are 14.5 or 15oz, can't remember sorry! Also the momo's are a very good option also, the denim feels amazing!

Has anyone gotten the knees on a pair of jeans repaired? I have a pair that the knees are starting to get that fuzzy falling apart feeling and Im not sure if its worth repairing the knees or if I should just retire them.

If you like the jeans and plan on either taken them to or sending them to, a denim specialist, then it could be worth it to prolong the life. I had a pair where one of my knees started to go and I got them rewoven my Denim Revival here in LA and they did an excellent job.

If you don't adore them, buy new jeans🐱

So I keep reading conflicting reports about whether to wash your raw denim. I probably wouldn't wash them that often either way as I probably wear them 1-2 times a week max, so my 6 months is different from other people's 6 months, but is there any conclusive opinion at least on SF on this matter? Seems like lots of people in the denim industry even just say right out the not washing denim thing is basically bs if it's sanforized.

post #20859 of 20864

if you wash them too early they'll shrink a bit even if they're sanforized and more importantly they won't fade nearly as fast

Right, but in the long term if I just give it a cold soak it won't have too much of a detrimental effect right?

post #20861 of 20864

If they're dirty you should wash them, or else no point in just soaking if they're sanforized already.

 

That is except an initial soak to get the starch out, which you can do at the start or after a week or two.

post #20862 of 20864

Yeah that's what I meant, a soak because it's way too rigid atm.

There is a difference between a wash and a soak. Just clarifying for those that may not be aware.

 

Wash is done in a machine with agitation..

 

Soak is done in a bathtub or something similar with minimal agitation.

 

Please correct me if I'm mistaken.

Oh yeah, I don't use my washing machine for anything, I just hand wash or soak all my clothes. I had assumed you can get away with just soaking and never washing them. That's what I do with my CM clothes, chinos, linen pants, etc. as far as I am concerned unless the stains are really really bad, the only reason to use a washing machine is to save time, and not even much since it's not really that hard to soak something.
