Ten best jeans - Page 24

post #346 of 364
ppllzz I think you made a mistake. Dior homme & Ralph Lauren Black Label do not fit this top 10. They're not within the 250$ range. (Dior jeans can cost you 600$ sometimes) By the way, I find it interesting that LAguy mentioned Diesel in his top 10, seeing how everyone on this brand bashes this brand. Since you own a pair of a Diesel, LAguy, do you find them overpriced or worth the price tag?

Disagreeing does not make you a troll.
You, on the other hand, have been most helpful and that I highly appreciate. Thank you.
Will post pictures of myself soon. Pray for snow, coz I'm blazingly hot.

no, i am hoping to learn something from you

You do realize that the original post was from almost 6 years ago?

here is my top 10. 1. samurai 710xx. this is by far my favorite denim/cut. perfect in nearly every respect. 2. pbj-007. not only because of a great slim fit but for the unique color of the denim. 3. pbj-ai-001 or 002. my personal grail. i will have my greedy little hands on a pair very soon! 4. warehouse 660. the 1000xx denim is a perfect weight that fades beautifully. 5. samurai 500xx. a great classic fit that looks great on most body types and the denim has a unique texture that tends to grow on you. 6. oni shoai. no explanation required. hopefully they will make another production this year. 7. 45rpm jomon. natural indigo denim dyed 24 times yields one of the finest colors on a pair of jeans ive ever seen. the grail of all grails. if i didnt mind spending $1k on denim i would own a pair. 8. sda-103. 9. oni blue. a slubby textured denim that takes on a very unusual fade. this particular cut has one of the best front/back rises out there. 10. momotaro goo-t. natural indigo, all hand made with hand embroidered patch. woven on modified loom which only yields 1m/day of denim. if you had $2k and didnt mind waiting a year then this is the denim for you. this denim is so unique and special im not worthy of this particular pair of jeans.

Is it a crime to revive an old thread, instead of posting a new one?

Not at all. My point was that opinions on Diesel can change a lot in 6 years. They may not be anywhere near LAGuy's top 10 anymore.

You're right.

I think it'd be kinda hard for some people to pick five brands of premium denim that they've all owned (or handled enough to feel able to make a qualified judgement). I'll second whatever123's top pick of Samurai s710xx, and I'd probably put my SExSC06s (not sure if those should count, since they're a limited-edition collaboration) and KMW Rockers after that on the list. I also have a pair of Nudie RRDS, but I'm sure they're not as good as most of the BiG/SE brands that most people favor. I've handled LVCs, PBJs, and Momotaros, but not enough to say whether one brand is better than the other.

Agreed with the 710 pick. Fantastic cut and beautiful denim.
post #355 of 364
i find marc jacobs to have the best fit. i wear my black skinnies at least once a week

This is a nice list. I've handled only 7 of these jeans, but in any case, I'm not sure that I'd agree with this as a representative Top 10, since they are only representative of one branch of jeans-dom. It'd be like saying that the best art is all from early Italian Renaissance. But a nice list nonetheless.

FWIW, to the poster who asked, I think that although Diesel was a pioneer brand, it's atrophied somewhat, and initiatives like Diesel Black Gold have been mixed successes, at best. The rest of the world has moved on, but it seems that Diesel has stagnated and is becoming increasingly irrelevant. (In terms of it's other brands, it does seem to have done a good job with Margiela and with DSquared, but when's the last time you heard about New York Industrie or Victor and Rolf?) It is big enough that it will probably have its day in the sun again, but big companies have good and lean years. For example, in 2000, GAP could do no wrong. Then they found that they'd lost touch with the zeitgeist, and haven't reconnected yet, while staid J.Crew really found its stride after years in the wilderness.

yep that is a very nice and balanced (in terms of brands) list. only for me, an Evisu #2000 (or#2001) No.1 MIJ is missing

yeah ... blue jeans have been around for ~ 140 years so you do make a good point. i may need to amend my list (less the samurai 710XX). thanks for pointing that out fok.

I'd definitely put Triple Works Future wash Slim straight legs in the list for sure. Things going for it:
Available in the USA, and not just at one retailer
Great color and nice denim in an accessible weight and with a hand that is friendly to non-denimheads and denimheads alike
Fit is comfortable and modern at the same time - versatile.

Makes for a very versatile jean in really nice denim (nicer, ime, than the heavier weight Ironheart jeans, and a better fit overall (comfortable but slim top block is great.)

The above is the type of justification and detail I'm looking for.

IH 634s. Really awesome cut, not too low rise, but not to high. High quality construction, heavy denim but not stiff. I would say this might be my favorite denim, and favorite cut. It's nice they make different cuts in this denim, so for those that like a slimmer cut have the 301's. Momotaro 0201's. Love the midweight denim on these. Little heavier than average, but nothing super heavy. Really love the color on these. Start out with such a dark blue, and fade beautifully. My pair is still pretty new, but the color is really starting to come through. I also really like this cut, especially the back pocket placement/level. Seems to look just right. KMW 1950's and 1980's are awesome. I prefer the 1950 cut, but wear the 1980 sometimes. Again, excellent construction and I really love the KMW denim (this is the older RHT), haven't had/felt the new LHT they are using. Slow faders but beautiful.
