You're going to be murdered for that.

You can get washed Nudies for around that price or probably cheaper. See what Mauro still has in stock.

I thought this Our Legacy pair might work. I like the realistic wash (honeycombs are realistic, too) wash, straight fit, high-ish rise. I know they look a bit dad-ish on the model, but I don't think anyone would mistake me for a dad. These are $158. Any better options out there for the price? Would it be better to go with something darker than these but still not raw?

You might as well just pick up some levis from UO or something.

Whatever, I feel like some light denims; don't really care if I'll take shit on the internets for wearing them. I agree that the OL's aren't great, but they're the best I could find. I'd like to find something subtly noticeably nicer (or even just different) than your average washed Levi's from UO. I'm going for something like this, but without the weird red lines around the crotch: Bonus points for badass pink weft or something like that.

You should totally get your hair permed like that. If you pick up some 511s at UO I can guarentee you they will be just as good as those OLs. I don't know so much about fake fades though. I'm trying to think abou the best ones i have seen. Nudies do make a great washed jean, but i wouldn't spend that kind of money on something your just going to wear a couple times during the summer.

You won't get shit for wearing light it was just your use of the word "realistic" was pretty laughable.

Look into Earnest Sewn. They probably have some of the better washes for the price and are typically found in many malls or online retailers at a discount.

Any pro Starcraft fans here? Well anyway here is a photo of Nada one of the highest paid pro Starcraft players in Korea. Anyway, I like his jeans. Anyone have any idea what they may be?

Does anyone have any experience with Raf by Raf Simons denim? How does the sizing run and what's the quality like?

x-post:

Deciding between either the skinny guys or weird guys... LOVE the way the skinny guys fit, but due to body proportions and such I need a 33 which means an actual 36" waist even though I'm a 34... The weird guys on the other hand still fit great but I like the way the skinny guys fit better and I wear a 32 in weird guys which is a good fit for my 34 waist. So basically I want the skinny guys, but I'm a bit worried about diaper-ass and such, so is the 2" waist difference going to create diapering? If so I'll go with the weird guys.

I was about to replace a bunch of carhartt work pants with more of the same. I was hoping someone could suggest a raw denim that might work instead, as a very tough and better looking alternative. The jean would probably be boot cut and be good for someone built like a cyclist.

If the logical choice is 501STF, can you please suggest a good online retailer (there are none local).

Thanks.

Were Dad's sold out then, or not?

I wouldn't necessarily advise trying to emulate this look, given the apparent lack of confidence you exhibit with your other fits.

Picturing it now, actually, it might work. Go with similar colour schemes to the runway outfit. Figure-hugging navy shirt/jacket. Not something which swamps you.

Cross posted in APC thread:

Just got my pair of APC NS in the mail today, but I don't think I sized down enough. They're a size 28, but I'm definitely going to exchange them, I just don't know if I should try to get a 27 or 26? Or try the PS? Fit pics for reference:

+1. Wash is anything but "realistic". I'd go as far as saying they look worse than many AE/Hollister jawns one see everywhere.


Had the jeans not been from Our Legacy, not sold at Tres Bien, or that you hadn't seen similar jawns "pulled off" on the runway (which, per someone's sig, is the beer google of fashion), you would not have given them a second thought,

Those look like Old Navy jeans at best. I realize "realistic" pre-distressed fades by SF standards is difficult if not impossible but those are horrible

Gap does a better wahed jean than that.
