Bought a pair of Neuw Ray Tapered a while back.  Very comfortable, the stretch is much appreciated.  

 

Any suggestions on good quality tapered stretch denim?  Looking for decent top block room with at least a 10" rise, 11-12" thigh, and approx 7" leg?  

Typically take a 33 in non vanity brands, 31 in Neuw.  33 in pretty much everything else (all EP, Gustin, N&F)

  

 

Budget say $150-250.  Not interested in mall brands, want different.  

 

 

Thanks experts. 

I know the stretch factor was a thing, but since you said you're inclined to grab something different, why not consider Pure Blue Japan? Always interesting textures and fading potential. You can either go classic right hand twill and end up with interesting, slubby textures. See, e.g., the 18 oz xx-013 model sold at Blue Owl or BiG. About a 7" opening (as most of their slim taper fits have). Pairs well with most things, including your Aldens and Ep shirts. If you want a smoother, left hand twill, go maybe for the 011. If the cost is a factor, you can order for cheaper from Denimio in Japan. They let you even modify the customs statement so as to avoid duty fees etc. PBJ also makes a very versatile indigo/indigo jean in a slim taper (xx-012).

 

I still wear the hell out of my Ep jeans, but there is quite a world out there with neat textures and fits. I'd also recommend looking into The Strike Gold from Self Edge, but the fits don't always work for people. That said, consider the 1109 for a slim tapered slubby fit with indigo warp / white weft. Maybe the 3109 for left hand twill with lots of electric blue / vertical fading potential.

 

Best of luck in the search!


Agree on PBJ and SG. I've got a pair of SG1109's and they're interesting jeans. Bit slimmer than im used to but still pretty cool. PBJ is next on my list as well as Ande Whall

I know you speak Epaulet fluently. Let's just say that PBJ's slim tapered fits are consistent the way you'd expect from a Rivet chino; once you figure out sizing, it's just about dialing in the texture and the color of the weft that best suits your style. If you're looking for more of a walt fit, you might go to a slim straight cut, like maybe a Flat Head model 1001 (see Rivet and Hide).

 

I know you listed budgetary constraints, but I'd recommend modifying the budget upward just slightly. You only need one or two good pairs and you're set, so it's worth the extra splurge.

I am not sure if this is the right thread to ask, but I have a question about denim shirt.

I recently bought a denim shirt which I think is too dark for my preference. Is it any way I can change the colour of the shirt without damaging it? I like more of a 'washed feel'? Do I just throw it in the washing machine, or does soaking do the job?

Either will help. May as well thrown it in the washing machine, though. The agitation may help promote fading. Usually when people carefully soak their jeans rather than putting them in the washing machine it's because they're trying to avoid or minimize color loss -- the opposite of what you seem to be looking for.

If you want a lighter color, you'll need the washing machine. The agitation in the water plus some soap pulls out the indigo. Also you'll want to wash it alone, since it can stain other garments.

Would washing the shirt in the washing machine make the shirt fade evenly? Or could it possibly be that some spots on the shirt is darker than the rest. I have not used the shirt yet, so there is no fading.

If you have not worn the shirt, there are no uneven wear spots, so no uneven fading.

 

Still, you may want to wash the shirt together with a big blue towel and that will help cushion the shirt from being folded in weird directions by the agitation/spinning of the washing machine.

Are those considered NTDenim? I wonder if I need to taper them since they got looser.







post #21386 of 21424

Wondering how these fit on me. Acne max cash 32/32. For reference I am 6'2" and 165 pounds. Still losing weight but wondering if I need to switch these out for something with a different fit.

Can you take pictures from farther away, in better light (maybe outdoors), and wearing a full outfit? Low-light close-ups are basically never flattering, and you're pretty much always going to be wearing more than just your jeans outside of your bedroom.

Offhand, the thighs look a little snug. How new are they? Generally speaking, the waist will stretch out so the jeans ride lower on your hips, which in turn gives you a little more room in the thighs. You'll also see the denim relax and lose some of its stiffness, which makes the jeans look and feel a little looser.

It's also worth thinking about how the jeans feel and how you feel while wearing them. If they're uncomfortable or of you feel uncomfortable wearing them, it's probably not the right cut for you.

I owned two pairs of APC NS in the past and liked them for their minimalistic and somewhat dressy design (no stitching, no leather patch, silver buttons) as well as their mid rise.
Since I have athletic thighs and prominent knees I found their cut a little too narrow below the hips.
Which brands should I look at for a pair of raw indigo as well as a white pair of jeans?

Plaid type of pattern on jeans... 

 

I have a pair of Joe's I got a few years ago and they have a plaid pattern on them.  I would like to get more, but haven't been able to find them or anyone else making them.  The jeans are exactly the same fit / fabric as regular joe's but they have a light plaid patter on them.

 

Any suggestions?

Big John, carried by (among others, obviously) SF affiliate No Man Walks Alone sells raw and one-wash indigo and an white/off-white jean that might be close to what you're looking for in their slim-straight cut.
