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

Is that the levi's ex girlfriend jeans?  I remember that - almost bought it but decided against it...I think the 510 is really good, have a few pairs myself.  Trouble is after a few wears they stretch out and become really loose.  Not sure if it is what you are looking for, but did you ever try Abercrombie Super Slim?  I regularly wear Levis 510, Express Alec, A&F Super Skinny and 7FAM Rhigby but for fit, A&F is hands down my favorite.

So sorry - didn't see you said they had to be black (I don't think A&F makes black, they might have started this year but I forget).  Yeah, for black I usually just go with the 510s...

If you're going to measure a pair of jeans to collect data to buy a new pair of jeans, do you measure them freshly washed and dried (the shrunken, holy shit this is tight state) or after you've got them stretched out with a few days of wear (the ah, so comfy state).

 

I love the fit I'm getting from my N&F weird guys, but I think I'd like to try other brands.... looking to duplicate this fit as closely as possible.

I myself measure them in the "ah so comfy stretched out" state.  But yes, Naked and Famous is very good, I will admit that.

Well, it's more about comparing apples to apples. If you're measuring in the "comfortably stretched out" state then you'll want to shop for a pair that, based upon the shrinkage/stretching characteristics of the brand and cut, will be comparable after stretching out -- which are generally not the measurements you'll find in a size chart. If you measure your current pair post-wash and unworn, that might be more comparable to the off-the-shelf measurements of a new pair (if one-wash or otherwise not expected to shrink significantly)

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.

Update: I got a pair of Taylor Stitch slim fits, looks like they might fit the bill. Also bought and returned some 3sixteen ST-100x, could barely pull them over my ass.

How did you find the 3sixteens compared to NS's fit-wise? I'm in the flat-ass/slim thigh camp myself and had been considering a pair of 3sixteens of one stripe or another.

Also, can anyway speak to comparison fit between NS and Petit NS? Are they similar, with latter being slimmer through the legs, or are there other notable differences? Same rise? Does the denim have the same stretch factor?

Can anyone suggest a fit similar to NS, in a higher quality selvedge? No peach/pink stitching (momotaro), cutesy arcuates or low rise (not lower than NS anyway).

I can't really say much about how they're supposed fit because they were just nowhere close to fitting me. My NS are 28, they're too tight in the seat/crotch but I can wear them. I got 29 in the ST-100x, and while it looked like the waist was big enough to fit my waist, I couldn't actually raise it to my waistline. I might have had some luck sizing up one, but like I said, just went with the Taylor Stitch instead.

Neither. Uniqlo's selvedge is better IMO

I'd posted this same question in the Ask anything thread but i think i'll get a more focused answer here.

 

I'll be in Tokyo come March, and i've set aside a shopping session in the famous Isetan in shinjuku.


Can someone point me to a few brands to watch out for?

 

Given that im looking for a good pair of dark indigo jeans, and my budget is just below 250 USD.

 

Also, what kind of cut should i be going for, straight or tapered, especially given that i have huge chunky thighs, but my build is average/athletic.
