Thanks, I'll be sending them off to get hemmed this week!

How do RRL Slim-Fit Rigid Jeans fit? Are they better than APC Petit New Standards or 3Sixteens? Also comparing the RRL Jeans to RRL Pants would i use my RRL Pants waist size or size down for the denim?

post #20988 of 21439
alternatively, instead of hemming them, you could just cuff them four or five times or so
post #20989 of 21439

I have thought of doing that, i've done it on another pair but the cuff turns out way too chunky. I like a nice single cuff so it's not too bulky. 

post #20990 of 21439

Agreed. I also used to cuff my pairs 3 or 4 times. I hated that look because they were really chunky and not clean at all. Since then, I hemmed all my pairs to have a single cuff.

I am a longtime CM guy who has been wanting to get some decent jeans, and just picked up these LVC 1954s on Ebay last week. My first pair of raws ever. These 34x34s are snug in the waist and hips, borderline uncomfortable but stretching out a bit after wearing for a few hours.

Any comments on fit here? Should I go/have gone up to a 36? Sorry for the bad photos.

If they are sanforized you MAY be alright. If they are stf there is no way you will even be able to get them on after they are washed
post #20993 of 21439
Agreed. If they're sanforized and/or a one-wash version, you're probably good. Don't look too tight anywhere even if you feel a bit self-conscious. If they are still raw and will shrink to fit, then no way - size up.
post #20994 of 21439
I was afraid of that. They're raw, unsanforized and haven't been washed yet.

I've seen so much conflicting info on these. Some say size up, some say they're vanity sized and/or will stretch back out to tagged size after soaking. :-/

Having bought and subsequently had to flip multiple pairs of denim based of SF-sizing recommendations to size down, etc, it's always a personal issue. If they're tight now and unsanforized, you will never feel comfortable in them as they age. Return if possible, and cut your losses.

You need to make sure that your jeans are made of unsanforized denim before sending back. Raw denim doesn't mean necessarily that it is unsanforized.

When you're dealing with LVC it does.

Who makes jeans with deep front pockets?  I keep my iPhone 6 Plus in my front left pocket and my jeans are from 2011 (or maybe 2012).  It fits (barely) even when I sit down...  but it's time to buy new jeans.  New Levis come with front pockets that are a few inches less deep, so it doesn't fit anymore.  I've been wearing Levis for years, so I'm clueless about other brands.  What should I check out?

post #20999 of 21439

@T2ohoh Depends on your price range. If its under $200 go for APC. If your price range is 200-250 go for 3sixteens. 250-300 go for RRL or LVC. Anything above 300$ Samurai or PBJ's are the best bang for your buck.

Has anyone tried the momotaro 60% cotton 40% linen denim? I really like how the inside of the jeans is a darker grey.
