Never heard of this technique/method... I personally wouldn't do that because that seems like it would just make your jeans really sticky.

 

I just wear until too dirty and then machine wash inside out on cold, and hang dry.

I haven't heard of using hair spray either. I guess it's the same concept as spray starch for ironing. Denim mills put a starchy substance on denim to maintain consistency for width when rolling up the fabric - so hair spray or spray starch would be an attempt to put that back onto the fabric after its come off through wearing or washing.But a raw jean like your APC's are meant to be broken in at some point - so I wouldn't try to get back the raw look or feel after you wash. Maybe when you wash, try a delicate cycle or hand wash if you want to keep some of that starchy substance in the denim longer.

Anyone have any experience with Mike Amiri denim? I really like the repaired look with the folded leather, but not sure how the hold up in terms of stretching and such. Price is obviously pretty obscene, but looking to invest in a new pair for next few months.

Not much experience with Mike Amiri denim, but I'd check out RRL if you're looking for nicely distressed (Japanese) jeans. Much cheaper than Mike Amiri (especially when they go on sale - could be purchased for $110 - $200), the quality is superb, and they have a variety of fits to choose from. Hope that helps.

Please suggest a few brands that have the following:

taper

higher-rise

 

For example, i notice that most jeans are cut fairly aggressively these days with the rise. as in the rise is very small and when sitting down my ass is going to show

 

can you please suggest a few examples?

Somet

e: specifically the 030 cut
post #21445 of 21446

I have a pair of Omnigods where the back pocket is ripping making it such that it can't store a wallet.

 

Thinking about just taking it to my tailor and seeing if she can work a bit of out-of-place patch work into it.

 

Better to just send it into a professional?

 

Really don't feel like shipping them away for two months but...

I actually handled some of the black MX1 jeans today (was there to try on the stack boots). Fabric is nice and smooth, really high quality. There was some stretch, but it wasn't a great deal. Felt kind of like 1% elastane, but I didn't look too closely at it, could be something else. They're meant to be slim cut, rather than skinny, but unless you have very thin thighs, they look like they'll sit very close to the body.
