I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1422

post #21316 of 21424

I was trying on the Acne Studios Max jeans 34/34 today. They fit pretty well around the waist and seat but the thighs are a ever so slightly tight.

 

If the thighs stretch a bit with wear I'm good or if i end up washing them at some stage am I screwed? What are people's thoughts on the fit?

 

 

Sorry about the picture quality and the sexy midriff

Those are way too tight. The thighs won't stretch with wear. Size up, or find a cut better suited to your body.

The waist looks too tight too. You won't be able to sit. Yes, you need to size up.

Appreciate the replies.

 

Waist and seat are actually fine, there is a bit of room to give. When i sized up to 36 the waist was huge.

 

I think my problem is i have a small ass in comparison to my thighs (weirdest sentence i think i have ever written).

 

I tried on more regular fit jeans, the thighs are fine but the ass is always super baggy or sags.

 

So i'll continue the search...

Is there any advantage in soaking sanforized denim? If I don´t soak, is the starch going to help fading and contrast?

The starch is not helping with the fading of your jeans. You soak denim to get rid of the starch and all the other stuff you don't want to be in contact with your skin. Soaking or washing a pair of jeans before you wear them is about hygiene and will not affect the fading of your jeans negatively.

I also recommend hot-soaking them because even though they are sanforised, they will still shrink a bit. Some of the experienced members here soak new jeans three times before they start breaking them in.

FWIW though, starch will help with fading. It creates more friction in the applied area, rather than getting softer. That friction will wear the fabric more than area around it. So, after soaking for sizing' sake, you could starch your high stress areas to get higher contrast fades.

Recently I've bought myelff my first pair of 100% cotton raw selvage denim. The thing is that when I tried them at home the felt good, but when I have to go on my bike or put my leg up. I'm a bit unable of doing lol.Also when siting, top block is a bit tight. Is this normal with raw denim and part of the breaking-in process?

I can post pics later, cheers

No one ever bought the Antony Morato's jeans?

Hey, I just wondered if there is a brand that makes skinny raw denim jeans. Like not your regular "skinny" but as skinny as that:

What size should I get for a pair of Acne Thin Stay Cash? I'm normally a size 28 or 29.

My true waist size is 33, as measured right above hip bones. All these years buying raw/one-washed denim was a crapshoot for me... I always either undersize or oversize (nice pair of Fullcount 1101s, tagged 31, measuring 34.5).

Is it pretty much safe to assume that after a soak/wash, jean will eventually stretch out to its raw measurement, regardless of tagged size?

The waist will most like stretch back to raw measurements. Areas like the thighs etc, will be harder to stretch. This is because of the waistband being sewn on an angle of 90 degrees opposed to the rest of the jeans. Stretch in the legs will mostly be lengtwise (e.g.pulling the hems when wet to stretch the inseam).

Nope, you're SOL.
