It sounds exactly like those cheesy brain teasers they write on the inside of gum wrappers. Speaking of jeans, I went to a few different places trying to find a pair yesterday, and was very disappointed. I am going to need to order some, I think. I tried Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters (Diesel and Levi's Premium, but only the Skinner with the ultra low rise) and Levi's store, which had no premiums or vintage (?).

j, LVC (Levis Vintage Collection) are very difficult to come by and usually you will have to go to a Vintage clothing store, or one of the larger Levis-only stores to find them. It may actually sound weird to buy them from a vintage store since they really are brand new jeans, but everyone I know that has them got them from a vintage store. MCA, Denime is the one maker I know of 19 oz jeans, but I don't read Japanese well enough to be able to find a link. This is jsut what I've heard (from a very reputable source). I *think* but am not sure, that Kaihara of Japan manufactures 21 oz denim. Insanity.

Interesting about the Levi's. They told me they had some of the vintage stuff in the store, but I didn't see any, and they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. I thought at least they would probably have the premium. It does seem to be a pretty large store, for selling only Levi's. If I wanted to get a pair of Diesels in a slim cut with a dark, normal wash, i.e. no whiskering and crap, where would be my best bet to try? Which cut and wash am I looking for? Thanks. Edit, oh yeah, and what about AGs? Any opinions on them? Nordstrom has a lot of those, but again washes I don't really care for. I just want some durable, well fitting jeans. I will take care of the damage myself.

Diesel Rabox, for sure. Not sure about the wash, but Rabox is no doubt the cut you're looking for. Oh, for location, there's a Diesel store in Portland. That's the closest to you that I know of. Diesel stores will *definitely* have what you want. They have just mounds of jeans there.

Cool, thanks. I will try the other Nordstroms and call around here too. If all else fails, Portland's not that far, a pretty good road trip.

Oh, everyone curious about the APC cut, I just checked my unisex jeans that I bought last november and they definitely say "New Standard" on the tag.
post #23 of 25
BrianSD, so do you think that the current selection of unisex jeans from APC are all that different from the New Standard jeans? And whether they are or not, is there any real difference that justifies the price difference, or is it just because the New Standards are, well, new?

Whatever you do, don't buy from this Ebayer. The funny part is that he describes some radically different jeans as the same PDC model. Unfortunately, it seems even Paper Denims are no longer immune from fakery. Not much I can add to the suggestions, though I do recommend trying a whole bunch on. I'm not six feet tall, but somehow most PDCs fit me perfectly and still look great when I get them altered. The wear marks on the back of Earnest Sewns, on the other hand, end up somewhere in the middle of my calves. Shame too, because the Hutch cut is fantastic, and the Filson's pretty good too.

Designed for comfort, it has an overall looser fit with a wide and full leg opening, and the exceptional Japanese and Italian denim has been hand-treated and distressed to give it that perfect, two-years-of-wear look.
For GTS? Nice..
