Ten best jeans - Page 5

post #61 of 364
Brian, I am about 70% convinced to order a pair of the APCs you linked (standard). How do they fit once washed? And how low is the rise? And where can one find the Uniqlos in the US, or at least in English? Maybe I will wait to look at them in Japan in May.

Who carries Corpus Jeans?
Fred Segal/HTC in LA, and Stels in Boston just got a shipment. They have the Morhy in the crinkle wash for $215, and the Fine (straightleg) in the raw denim, for $185. The summer line (brand new stuff) is all in 12 ounce denim. I am willing to pick them up for you if you PM your size and paypal me the price plus 5.5% tax (they are over $150) plus about $10 for shipping (if in US) and T-tickets (I have to get down there) plus the 4% paypal gouge. Comes out to just over $205, I think. Your choice, either way

LA. You surprised me by not having Helmut Lang on the list. You've always been a big fan since back in the days (when I used to post, about a yr. ago). Guess you've moved onto Nudie and others... e

Don't get me wrong, I am a huge HL fan, and they get honorable mention for sure, but for the retail price, any of those on the list beat it, the Nudie (98 Eu) and APC ($109) especially.

Didn't mean to be confusing - anyone could answer this question.

The New Standards have about an 10.5 inch rise, and fit great. Shrinkage (as long as you are cold washing them and hang drying them) is a couple of percent, tops. Buy em. They rock. I personally like the Anglaise fit better myself, but that's myself.

The rise is a pretty solid medium, I would say. Much lower than 501s, but higher than PDC GTO or Diesel Zathan. j, the best I can think of would be online UK retailers, but I tried doing some searches and cannot find any online stores with them. A friend of mine bought them in Japan so that's how I've seen them. I highly recommend that you pick up a pair when you go to Japan. My friend's mother is bringing me home a pair when she gets back in a couple weeks.

Excellent, thank you both. Sounds just about right for what I'm looking for. As to the Uniqlos - source in US? Should I plan to bring some back with me in May?

j., If you see dark washes (rigid or semi) in the Uniqlos in heavy denim (say 13.25 ounces and above) count me in for a couple of pairs, size 33. I like a true straightleg, but prefer a slight bootcut. If no 33 available, and the cut is true to size, just one pair, in 34. I hate tight jeans.

Still in Japanese Brian. I just nearly ordered a pair of kids jeans, damn you. Please repost the link (just do a new post) for the site in English.

I will have to remember to bring my scale. I'll see what I can do, PM me or email with as much info as you can get from the website so I can be sure to get it right.

Haha, well the Japanese site is good for pictures and not much else, although with limited knowledge of Japanese I was able to decipher some parts (mostly things like "serubaji denimu" - selvage denim). I dont think there is a single place online to find really detailed information about Uniqlos. they have a UK site http://www.uniqlo.co.uk/, but it doesn't even mention men's jeans.

Speaking of tight jeans, Im starting to shy away from my Sevens. They are getting a little tight, especially now that Ive gotten back into cycling and soccer. When I first bought them they were very comfy. I don't like baggy jeans though. Any suggestions? Or should I stick with my HLs? e

I don't know that I consider sevens to be very tight, to be honest. On most men that I've seen there is a huge imbalance between the cut in the different areas (thighs which are tight, seat, which is saggy and bubbly, and calves which are very loose). Definitely try PDC, it's the same sort of goal as Sevens (lightweight, comfortable denim, modern fit with a visible boot cut), but the cut is much more balanced, and the seat is better constructed.
