Is it the thighs thats too slim? The taper below the knee?

Curious to see who's saying that's a slim fit. Although let me say that denim doesn't stretch much in the thighs.

Screw Cheap Mondays, brother. What you need is a real man's man slim/skinny jean. Get a pair of the Skull 5010. I have a pair, and they're the perfect balance for a really slim jean. Enough material at the thigh and calf/leg opening so they're not 'painted on' at all. I can almost promise they'll seem like a 'normal' fit with legs as skinny as yours (my thighs are only 19" dia.). Seriously. Spend the money and end your discontentment. They're a modern fit without any bullshit. Good denim too. They'll fit pretty much like c00kz jeans above, but will probably drape more like a 'normal' fit on you.

(Blue in Green and Self Edge sell these - stock expected in a few weeks. Both may ship to Canada via USPS).[/quote]

They seem kind of baggy... Based on the pictures I've seen. Could you like upload a picture of you wearing the Skull 5010's ? My thighs are 19 inches as well. Also, where can I buy them in Canada, BC? I don't want to buy them before trying them on since it's 200+ dollars.

I just sent my Flatheads off to the tailor to hem it with regular lockstitch. Am I in trouble?

Can I expect any fades with Nudie Long Johns? They were listed under raw on Context, but after I picked them up, emailed and found out they were rinsed.

Hi, after seeing some posted mesurements on both skull 5010xx and APC PS, is it true that both these pits are very similar?

I'm also about a 33 waist, what size in both skull 5010xx and APC PS would I be looking at for an overall slimmer fit

Just confirmed from ebay seller that the RRL 'stretch selvage' has a zip fly and 2% spandex listed on the tag. So, yeah, it's basically a 'slim for fat' model

I just received some Levi's 501 STF's in the mail. Both pockets (left and right) have the "Levi's" pocket tab. Is this intentional or a manufacturing flaw? Ordered them from a legit Levi's dealer so I don't think they are counterfeit. I've attached a picture. I've never seen that before and there was no indication that they were supposed to have pocket tabs on both pockets. What gives?
Thanks,
Dave

Is it the thighs thats too slim? The taper below the knee?

If you're going by thigh dimensions provided by someone else, beware of two things:

1. The thigh can be measured at many places (at exact intersection of crotch and inseam), or elsewhere. Clearly, that intersection point (BiG style) is widest.

2. If thigh is measured at this point, it has absolutely nothing to do with what the thigh does elsewhere (it can flare out or taper suddenly - it's not always a straight run down the leg...) Vintage repro cuts often have a 11.5/12" 'thigh' measurement, but the thigh will proportionally flare out going down compared to a slim fit.

For example, a loose-ish 501 repro cut can have the same 'thigh' and 'knee' measurements, yet have nothing else in common with a skinny jean.

Top block dimensions also play majorly into the perception of 'slim' thigh.

My Skull 5010s are the slimmest thing I own, and the whole thigh, at 11.5" up top, is snug, partly because the whole top block is tight. My loosest jeans - repro cut Evisu lot 1 - also have an 11.5" thigh, measured at the same point.

Be careful about thigh-to-knee ratios. Much can happen in between.

Yes, very similar in overall fit, but with key differences too subtle to go into here (I've worn both).

Skulls are a much more sophisticated fit, and better thought out all across the fit. Also will be slimmer all around. Get the skulls. No question. You do get what you pay for in this case.

Those are definitely a straight leg fit, don't listen to anyone who would call that a slim fit

I highly, highly doubt anyone would make counterfeits of $30 jeans

Sorry for all the posts...just saw these.

Not baggy at all. Pictures seem to portray that. They're not. BiG (not sure abt. SelfEdge) will accept exchanges/returns if unworn. Ask them. Order, try fit. if no go, exchange.

No. Why? Many jeans are from factory with lockstitch (APC for one...). Lockstitch is debatably as strong or stronger than chainstitch. Send to one of the two big guys if you want a chainstitch in the future. Almost the same price as my tailor charges.

Yeah. All shrink to fit 'raws' have to be soaked prior to wear. It's more rare to just put on jeans without a soak. All jeans also fade. Better denim fades better. Longer wear between washes will promote more extreme contrast.

Maybe not in USA but in Korea they sure as hell do. Then again, even the most basic 501 costs something like $150.

I've seen a pair of 514's with a similar flaw. The small red tag didn't say Levi, it just had the "R" in a circle which follows the brand name. Weird, but not something I think should be worried over.

I'm wondering if it might be considered a collector's item as a rare defect - to have two pocket tabs, one on the left pocket AND one on the right pocket. If not, I have no problem wearing as is. It's not that noticeable and I could always remove it if I didn't like it. However, if it were a collector's item I wouldn't want to wear it or remove the tags.
post #7635 of 20892
I can't speak for your case, but the jeans which had the "defect" I mentioned were found on a stack of identical jeans, it's not special. I think it is likely a similar thing such as yours isn't a big deal either, of course other people's beliefs are a lot more relevant here.
