My understanding is that he hasn't ever washed these or soaked them?

So if he threw them in the washing machine he would no longer fit in them?

Regardless of whether he soaks them or throws them in the washing machine, he's going to get shrinkage. He's pretty much fucked on the inseam but I assume that he bought his jeans sized one up so that once they get into water they'll shrink an lose an inch or so initially and then stretch right back out. So if he's looking at maximum contrast, soap and hot water. If he fears the shrinkage gods, soap and cold water.

Thanks I'll try steaming them. And there's nothing wrong with ironing them, I just don't have an iron with me.

The inseam is perfect now, but man my balls are inside my stomach, this is fucking cold

This is going to seem nuts. I don't get some of the websites measurements. Some will do measurements like 8.5, 8.25, 8.75. Makes sense to me 8.5=8 1/2 and so on. What are they talking about when they get into 8.3, 8.9, 8.4 etc. Does that mean 3/10, 9/10 etc.? Doesn't make sense because inches aren't measure in tenths. 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 is how you measure an inch. I Must be the carpenter coming out in me.

Anyone have thoughts on this jean: http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Blac...ean_11207.html Is there a better option for a slim straight fit waxed black jean?

It's someone who doesn't know measurements. A little more than 8.25 would be 8.3. Get it?

Kill City would be a good option and probably priced lower. SJDC or TFDC are other popular options.

I just bought a pair of presoaked Flat Head 4001BK, waist size 32' (after soak). Will these stretch to accomodate my 34'' waist? These will also be the first jeans I have bought that are more than 50 dollars. Also, is it necessary to soak your jeans? If I were to buy a new pair of jeans, would it be recommended I soak them? Or does soaking just shrink jeans so they fit better?

Does this seem normal at all. I got a new pair of jeans a few weeks ago. soaked them, and got them hemmed. Only hemmed, no other alteration. I wore them for the first time yesterday. something is off with the seams that are on the inside and outside of the leg. It's only on one leg though. The right leg is fine. Both seams go up the middle of my leg on the inside and outside. The left leg is a little off though. The seam on the inside (the stitching) starts off ok, but then gradually goes toward the back as it goes down the leg. On the outside of the leg, the seam is goes toward the front of my leg instead of being on the side down the middle of my leg. Make sense? Anyway, I wanted to check here first before I bothered the store I bought them from.

I believe leg twist is going to occur on any jean that isn't broken twill, so yeah its normal.

If you don't soak them up front, the sizing will change drastically when you eventually have to wash them. You will lose upwards of 2 inches in the inseam and around 1.5-2 in the waist. This would probably cause whatever faded you have to shift upwards. That said, can't really tell you about the stretching. I wore a 3001 for a month that was size 32 (my normal size) and it was pretty painful. Its a very slim jean up top. I'd definitely size up rather than down.

I'm debating between a pair of APC NS (sz 28) and Dior 19cm (sz 29) ... I'd like to buy based on which one will show wear a bit quicker since I already have a pair of jeans that I intend to keep looking raw ...

anyone know which of the two would be better suited?
post #2849 of 21424
Of the two, probably APC. Its less than half the price too...
post #2850 of 21424
I'm considering buying a pair of Rag and Bone 1. How "slim" are these versus the higher numbered counterparts?
