^ Shrinkage on APC is minimal.

Just do what everyone do and get the jeans hemmed to your desire inseam. Costs anywhere between $5-25 depends on who does it / where you live.

WAIT!!!!

I completely forgot - Ande Whall is coming out with black jeans. Buy those instead. You'll probably want the Cougar Bootcut - everything else is tapered. $200, even more under the radar than Skull/Sam/PBJ, killer construction, handmade, dope, etc. etc.

Peep details/measurements on his site.

Anyone has used hemming service at Blue in Green? How does it look after hemming? close to the original hem?

Sorta looking for a summer friendly jean, you know roll them up a tad and throw on some boat shoes. I wear only APCs now and they can get a bit heavy for Floridas crazy heat/humidity. Some grey NDG jeans were on my mind but I also want an Indigo denim. I'd prefer selvage cotton but I understand thats heavy.

What about EG's 8oz denim? Or Jean Shop's chambray jean? Personally, I broke down and bought a pair of sand RRL slimboots for the summer.

Exactly like the original hem. If you're detail-obsessed, it's worth the $$.

Dude, just wear shorts. That's what they're for. After joining SF I was briefly a part of the anti-short faction...and then I moved to da Souf and was like fuck this.

Also, PRPS, Takumi and Dry Bones, on certain models. I'm sure there are others.

So you gave up on finding The Perfect Grey Denimâ„¢?


Grey > Sand, IMHO at least, given that it takes certain will power to wear indigo over grey these days. For the off-white to light brown color range, I much prefer linen or chino.

I'm still looking for that grey pair (fucking rb better reproduce that 15) but I happen to have knowledge of some high-end exclusive shit coming down the pipe... Sand>Grey, IMHO, since I actually go to the beach on occasion and live in a tropical climate. Besides, there's nothing wrong with having both. Pic of the selv sand:

I have a 23" thigh, but want to wear something that's a little more tapered. I like the Petite Standard and Grim Tim, what others should I look at?

Jean Shop Skinnys really aren't all that skinny and have a great cut/fit. In comparison, Grim Tims feel slimmer. Rag & Bone has quite a few jeans out that might fit the bill. Crate makes the Route jean which fits around your PS/Grim Tim price range.
