I've already got NC's. I want something with more room than ncs.

BTW, before I cause an incident I should point out that the few experiences I had with Tobi were excellent: fast shipping, helpful service, etc.

And I'm not familiar with the data regarding Tobi and other affiliates, nor did I pretend to be; I just read enough here to know that they're not talked about nearly as much as SE, Farinelli's, etc - which is obvious, given that those two have significant online presence here.

None of the places any of you mentioned re: Crate currently have any stock posted in online stores; either way, one would have to call them up and do a sizing measurement/consult over the phone, which, even when done well, is a pain in the ass. If the fact that they're currently hard to find is just a seasonal issue, than my bad.

I wouldn't even go so far as to call Ande a friend (sorry bro!) beyond just a cool dood I met online. But my reason for boosting his stuff is the same as yours with Mauro and Chad: I think he makes a great product everyone needs to know about.

I've only owned 005, and that was back when I was skinny. Even then, though, they were pretty snug if you went true. I don't think they stretch a whole lot.

I don't have any exp with 710s personally, but my impression is that if worn true to size they give the look of a skinny jean (although they'll still be comfy b/c of the high rise).

Both are pretty versatile cuts - slim enough that you can size true or up without them looking sloppy, even after stretching.

Best advice: call up Gordon at Blue in Green, as I'm assuming that's where you'd buy either. He loves to talk about this stuff, and could probably steer you in one direction or another.

Check your pm.

And one final word on the subject: I respect the financial needs of this forum, understand the importance of affiliates, and appreciate all they do on our behalf; but I'd rather have Ande Whall jeans than a place to talk about them online, fwiw.

I can't leave it alone...one more thing: Cougars are slimmer than NS in the top block, despite having a roughly similar rise, and won't stretch nearly as much (and all this depends on who you'd size both pairs anyway). What I suggested was, imo, exactly what he was after. Edit: 4 postz in a rooooooooooow

There is practically no correlation between what is talked about on this forum and what business actually goes on with the affiliates. What and how active forum members buy typically does not reflect the spending habits of lurkers and occasional posters. It may seem counterintuitive but it's true. You can read "enough" all you want but you simply can not see the entire story unless you talk to the vendors themselves. So again, please stop confusing your experience here as fact.

Crate is a seasonal brand that routinely sells out. Like Ande, it's one dude. Unlike Ande, he also owns a store, does private label work, offers a collection more than just jeans, and puts out a hell of a lot of volume domestically and internationally.

Again, that's fine. We all want to support our friends. At least a few of us here don't pretend that our friends make the only jeans in existence worth owning.

You fucking dick. You have the balls to say some shit like that when you've been using this forum's B&S FOR MONTHS AS A FREE METHOD OF UNLOADING JEANS YOU HAVE FOR SALE??? Are you fucking kidding me? Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Back on topic, what ever happened to APC selling actual preworn pairs of their jeans? Is this only available in their stores, or did it never happen?

I've seen PRPS on a few dept store website but I think something like ShopStyle would have it all condensed for you.

Edwin stockist who mentioned: http://caliroots.com/

45RPM US webstore: http://www.rby45rpm.com/shopping/bro...?category_ID=1
There's a hefty US premium to the pricing however, so your best bet is probably to figure out exactly what you want and order/proxy from Japan (Rakuten).

Shouldn't be too hard to find PRPS stockists.

Other good options with regards to predistressed jeans: KMW, 5EP, Studio D'Artisan, Earnest Sewn, Nudie etc.

Good call re: Earnest Sewn; their washed stuff can often be found at places like Nordstrom Rack for hella cheap.
