I bought some Uniqlo black selvage jeans while in Thailand last month. Came in at around $56 Aud. For the price, they are an absolute bargain! I have a pair of A.P.C PS I bought as my first pair years ago, and now have two pairs of samurais. Although slightly lighter/thinner material then A.P.C If you can find some Uniqlo I think they will get you out of trouble for your first pair. If not look at the unbranded brand of jean. Could be another option.

Turn them inside out and give them a quick go in the washing machine. Or just chuck some soap in the bath and soak them for an hour or so, then hang dry them. Don't have to be too precious with them really.

Thanks for the replies guys. I have actually decided that I will buy some APC NS jeans in the next couple of months as I think it'll be a good investment ( I need to save up some money first) so I may buy uniqlo jeans as something to wear in the meantime and also for outings where they are going to get stuff split on them( alcohol) as they are quite cheap (I can only see one pair of selvege on the UK website which are £15).Thanks!

Guys: I am looking for a pair of slim-fitting denim that will not cut into my junk. It seems like every time I find a pair of jeans that fits right in the legs and waist, the crotch seam rides up so high that they become uncomfortable to wear (regardless of underwear choice). These aren't even particularly low-rise cuts -- it happens with my APC NS and my KMW 1950s, to some extent on my Epaulet Smith jeans. Maybe I'm less tolerant of this kind of thing or maybe I just have a relatively large ass, I don't know. Should I be looking for a high rise, lower yoke, or what? Specific suggestions are appreciated.

Wearing "ball-hugger" slim fit jeans will always give you male camel toe. Wouldn't a straight fit be better?

The cut of the thighs and legs often has little to do with the fit of the top block.

Hey there, i've always worn 501's preshrunk stonewash, i'd like to try some STF's but i'm not sure how to identify them.

 

I get them from an outlet so they don't come with tags identifying the style. The back cardboard patch is exactly like this one but without the Made in Usa

 

 

So do all 501's with the 'Care instructions inside garment" in this format points that they're STF? Also the stitching is more orangeish than golden.

 

I don't want to end up with a dark rinse preshrunk :P

 

Greetings

Slim fit straight selvedge jeans. Look too tight or good fit?

Is it generally not a good idea to tuck the legs of boot cut jeans into one's boots (provided it would normally be a non-issue with a tapered cut)?

I workout regularly and have an athletic physique.  I have big muscular thighs and butt from squatting.  What jeans should I consider because 99% of the jeans out there these days are made for skinny hipster guys.  I even find the new Levi's 641 athletic fit a bit tight around my thighs.  I don't care for the baggy, relaxed fit jeans.  FYI, here are some measurements I took on a very old pair of jeans that fit OK using the Blue Owl measuring method:

 

Front Rise: 11.5"

Back Rise: 15.75"

Knee: 9"

Leg Opening: 7"

Thigh: 11.25"

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

@styleforumfan Levi's 501 regular straight leg or Wranglers 13mwz would work without being necessarily baggy. I have skinny legs but big thighs from swimming too, and they fit like a dream.

 

Also have a look at Denim & Supply RL, their slim collection is kind of tapered but works well with big thighs and butt. 

 

With all this silly ultra skinny trend, if a jean isn't tight to your ass is considered baggy. It's not baggy, it's just masculine.

unless your waist is a 24, then there's no way an 11.25" thigh is anything close to too muscular to fit into skinny jeans.

Need some sizing advice on RRL jeans. Tried the RRL thread first, but maybe it's better suited for here.

I have purchased two pairs of RRL in identical size. (31/32). One is Slim Fit Rigid, the other is Low Straight One Wash.

My ideal jean waist size (post wash/soak) is probably 16-16.5."

The one wash low straight are actually 17" new and although they are comfortable, I'm worried since they have already been washed, they will be too large, especially if there is any stretching, which seems likely. Maybe the size 30 would work. Any ideas on how much shrinkage/stretching these are likely to experience?

Then there's the rigid slim fits. The waist is 16" (now, pre-soak), and it 's perfect in the waist, a big snug in the thighs. Don't know what will happen with a soak. Any ideas about whether these would shrink in the waist significantly? Or if they are snug/comfortable now, presoak, would they be about right post-soak/post-stretch?

I guess another option would be to try the low straight rigid but again trying to dial in the size seems like a challenge. If I tried the rigids, would the tagged size 31 basically turn out like the one-wash 31 after I washed it, or is the sizing different?

I also want to mention that I talked to the store and RRL about these questions and neither was helpful.

I find it very difficult to find black skin tight skinny jeans (not the 510 skinny type, or UB10X) that arent either: very short, or overpriced. Id like some more quality than H&M. Nudie jeans are literally the perfect fit but kind of overpriced. I'm interested to know about Acne Ace cash, but it seems that isnt really skinny either.  I'm kind of talking about this: mens-skinny-jeans_header.jpg
