I am at almost 6 months with my Rockers.. I am wanting something new and different. I don't have a lot of exposure to jeans, and basically skipped the APC/Crate intro and was lucky enough for KMW to be my introduction to nicer denim.
I sort of like the idea of a repro-cut but don't want something too anti-fit boxy. Does anyone have any good repro suggestions for something slimmish, sort of in between a 501 cut , and the slim tapered look of my KMW's?
I had sort of thought LVC 505's maybe, or Leepros. I really am just not sure. I realize a person with 3500 posts shouldn't be asking such simple silly questions but hell what do you do.
Could anyone tell me, out of curiousity, how the Levis 501 fit compares to Gap's Standard fit jeans, in terms of rise, looseness, etc? Also, are there are Levis that fit like the 527s but without the bootcut? I used to wear nothing but 527s, but I grew sick of the bootcut leg opening a year ago or so.
^So that's me in NS and NC, respectively. The NS are 28, the NC are 30, but I wore them with a belt so they only stretched to the size a 29 normally would. You guys think SExSC06's would be a good fit, maybe looser than the NC but a little slimmer than the NS? What size would I want for that type of fit? All this unsanforized bidnis is confusing.
I'm looking at a pair of RRL jeans, some quick questions.. 1. What is the fit like on RRL? I usually wear a 28 Slim Jim and 28 New Cure (I like something slim or straight like the SJ's), how do these compare? (also in a 28) 2. What kind of quality are they? 3. Do you think they're worth about $100? I'm looking at a white pair... PS - Are white jeans just a bad idea? like faddy, or just for summer. PPS - should white denim be looser then normal indigo?
Also - What do the RB15's fit like?? how would a 28 in rb15 compare to the above slim jim or new cure in a 28? Thanks
i don't think he'll be into lowrises__ even mid-lows for that matter. for his vitals, he'd need repro or near-repro cuts with front rises no lower than 11", blank pockets [or toned down trims&arcs]. i suggest :: Sugarcane models are always a staple :: Warehouse DDs :: Fullcount has a WWII with a heavier 15.7oz Zimbabwe :: Samurai 510 cuts :: PBJ 003 for an adventure in texture__ man, you only live once!
Have you considered Japanese brands? (Samurai in particular)

sort of, it seemed like Somets were pretty close to my kmw's... but its just hard because on sites like context KMW's look way more tapered than what I feel they look like on me. I really just need a long weekend to travel/try 10-15 different brands styles on. I was supposed to go to Madisson WI a couple months back... maybe we could head up there again so I could hit up Context. I dunno.
I really wish that Superfuture wasn't so weird, so I could do a little more research there. Everytime I try to post the textbox dissappears. I don't know if I got neg-repped too much, my computer/browser sucks, superfuture sucks... or some combination of all 3 things.
