Haha, yeah I agree... I don’t think these are the right fit for my body... Maybe PNS or NS...

I've mostly been wearing my WvG jeans. 12 oz, nice construction, perfect fit (size up 1 IMO). Super-low price $55 + shipping). Be warned, non-selvedge: http://www.wolfvsgoat.com/products/denim-project-italy

I've also worn my N&F WGs in 9.75 oz dungaree selvedge.

United Stock Dry Goods does a few different jeans in summer-weight denim, too. I tried to try on a pair of the slight fit but I couldn't get my leg through the leg opening. shog[1].gif

Hi I wanted to start improving my wardrobe and was wondering what were the best beginner level jeans? I really like the looks of APC new standards but they are to expensive.

What's your budget? Were you specifically looking for raw selvedge denim?
post #21084 of 21424

Yes and like 100$ max

If you really scope sales you can get APCs for very close to that. I've gotten them for a about a hundo before. Or check B&S for someone who bought a pair and wore them once and they didn't fit if you're cool with that. Check out the dude a couple posts above… he's got some for $99. Of course I don't know your size but you can find good denims for a bill if you scope.

You have to start by wearing Wal-mart jeans

 

Then as you gain experience and level up you can get something better.

 

Otherwise with your $100 price range I'd look at Levi 501s, or (I know some people will whine) The Gap. About 10% of the Gap's jeans are nice heavier weight jeans and you can get them in the $70 range or use one of the endless 30% coupons they offer.

^ The fact you even know that Walmart makes jeans says a lot. Helpful post there.

If someone likes Walmart jeans, good on them. But if he's interested in exploring what people here generally think of as "better" jeans (fit, construction, denim, etc.) I'm not sure what the benefit of starting with crummy ones is. You don't "learn" anything by wearing something unflattering and unfun before "leveling up". You just waste money you could be applying toward a decent pair. Better to start with something that at least has a cut and fit you like so you have a useful baseline for comparison. As Nickels notes, APC can be found around that price point. Acne and Uniqlo used to offer decent options at a relatively affordable price, but I'm not sure if that's still the case.
I don't know how rigid the OP's budget restrictions are, but if possible I'd suggest stretching to the $100 - $200 range, where there are lots of decent options, rather than blowing $80 on a pair he won't enjoy wearing. Cheap clothes are fine. Cheap clothes you don't really like are a false economy.

The O.P needs to pm me. Because I can source JDM Jeans before the Hilarious mark-ups you guys see in "Designer" Denim retail stores......

 

Shit, I can buy at retail, charge a proxy fee,post, and STILL do it cheaper. in 90% of cases.
