I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1411

Has anyone ever tried either the Slim Fit or Cigarette Fit jeans from DSTLD and, if so, how is the state of the rise for you guys? Are they perfectly fine for tucking shirts in should the spirit move you?

I don't wear jeans enough...

I love natural fades and raw indigo, but I also like wearing other pants so even my most worn jeans are still pretty dark after a couple of years, yet want a pair of light, preferably worn looking jeans.

Best option?

1.Buy a pair of secondhand worn jeans from a vintage dealer?
2.Buy a pair of pre-distressed LVC's
3. Buy a pair of pre-distressed jeans from one of the Japanses makers (probably Kapital or Studio D'artisan unless someone can come up with other recommendations).
4. Buy a pair of raw jeans and soak them in shirt whitener in between a few wears?

Thanks

I like options #2/#3 but have found LVC and the Japanese makers to have short inseams on predistressed jeans. Personally have had better luck with RRL, J. Crew and Uniqlo (the stretch selvedge in particular).

Yeah, I'd get some predistressed RRL

Hadn't thought about going tan, but found a pair of NOS RRL Dusty Tan Ranch slim fit's which assuming they fit might be better than faded blue.

Does anybody know how to get rid of the prewashed jeans "designed manually" crease lines? I bought mine and it looked nothing like in the photo

 

I want to remove most of the lines, how do I do that? scrub with wire sponge or something?

Hey guys...Im looking for a pair of Black jeans with a slim/skinny fit. Anyone have any suggestions? Looking for something like this
post #21160 of 21424
I'll be honest I like option #4 simply because it requires experimenting, fucking around and will likely yield unpredictable results. happy.gif

Do Studio D'Artisan's One Washes tend to have much residual shrinkage? I'm bang between sizes of a couple of pairs I've found on Rakuten...

Looking for raws in a skinny fit similar to the Uniqlo skinny tapereds. Unbranded's tight fit and APC PNS seem to have the fit I'd want, any recommendations for similar fits from brands with more interesting fabrics?

Anyone of heard of http://www.nobledenim.com? My brother lives in Cincinnati and apparently this company has started some vintage American clothing brand (Victor) there as well as the denim thing.
post #21164 of 21424
Noble Denim is fairly well known I think. I see their stuff all the time, so they're legit

Looking to splurge on a pair of Japanese denim.

Any opinions in what brand? Thinking PBJ, Kapital, Momotaro, or Samurai.

Want something unique, so I'm leaning towards:

Thoughts?
