post #22156 of 55201

Guys I'm looking at getting another pair of 501s. I already have an indigo pair which goes with everything but I need another and I'm not sure between a stonewash and black. I want them to wear with navy/grey blazers for wine tasting, lunches dates etc but they also need to look good worn out to a bar or nightclub with a light blue or light grey button up.

I wouldn't buy jeans in any colour but indigo. Why don't you pick up some chinos instead?

I disagree - I love stonewash and want some for summer. Indigo denim is almost like a uniform these days, and pretty heavy for summer. I wish these came in a less hipster fit.

Yeah I want something like this as well for summer, but it's nigh on impossible to find them in anything but skinny fits.

I love a good pair of indigo and they are great for most occasions (new ones for smarter occasions, those well worn ones for the more relaxed occasions), however agree that indigo can be a little too heavy for hot summer and a bit uniform.

I quite like these -

Yeah while selvedge denim is all the rage I sometimes just like a pair of lighter weight "wash" denim for warmer months. Seledge is typically thick and too hot to wear through summer

Selvedge has absolutely nothing to do with the wash or treatment of the denim. You can easily have lighter weight washed denim that has a selvedge outseam.

If you're looking for a slightly more faded denim, you could have a look at Uniqlo.

Unfortunately, they don't have any stores in Australia (yet), and you have to use a proxy as they don't ship internationally, but their jeans are outstanding.

I've got several pairs of their standard line (which are made in Bangladesh or Pakistan using Japanese denim, from memory) and a couple of pairs of their made-in-Japan selvedge denim line and both are excellent. The standard line cost $40 or so and the made-in-Japan line cost $80 or $90 (plus shipping and proxy costs if you don't happen to be travelling to a country with a Uniqlo store).

OK term used broadly... yes i know its the way its weaved with the edging but all the "good" denim brands seem to use heavy weight stuff

I had this query a while back - I am having real difficulty finding light stonewash denim (pref. selvedge) in a slim/straight cut below the knee but with a large thigh/seat. I am considering buying those APCs I posted above in a 36, hoping for the best and trying to get the waist altered.

i failed yesterday and wore my Somet 13.8oz denim jeans, was not fun at all.

Id go with Nudie jeans for summer as there styles are not as heavy.

APCs tend not to use a selvedge outseam on their washed denim. I would look at Baldwin Denim as pink socks posted if you'd like a selvedge jean that has been pre-washed. They name theirs the "California Wash".

More importantly, I would NOT alter the waist on APC jeans (or most jeans for that matter). APCs use double-felled lapped seams, including in the seat and altering this will likely lead to disastrous results.

Ah thanks for the advice.

this. if you can find of Nudies that are heavily bleached, they will serve you very well for summer use.
