New gap denim - Page 84

post #1246 of 1616
I bought a pair of Gap Standard Rigid Selvage last October, but I didn't start to wear them until last week. This is my first "project" jeans, so I started to ride my bike in them to get the honeycombing and whiskering process on it's way. They're 32x32, and in my Chucks, these jeans are still too long, and with the leg opening being rather wider than the Authentics or slimmer cuts, stacking is virtually impossible. What are my options? (I don't want to cuff them) I'm hearing conflicting reports whether they are sanforized, so is hot soaking just the bottom part of the jeans an option?

I can tell you from my experience with a "raw" pair of Authentic fit which I have had since winter sometime, basically when the first were released. The have not shrank. I really dig the top block fit, but I have literally boiled my pair from the knees down in hopes of slimming them, and the circumference has not changed. I was initially very excited about a cheap pair of raw denim that I could beat up, but it just isn't happening. And on top of it, Gap has made it hard to fade these things. I have never seen anything like it. I have a denim jacket made of the same bought at the same time. I have worn it religiously, and you would be hard pressed to find any fading, or permanent stacking on the sleeves where it should be prominent. Just my experience though

Wonderful! Now I have to find an able tailor to not mess up the selvage line like some other poor guy had experienced on here.

First of all, of course gap jeans are sanforized. You think they would sell STF? the customers would go crazy. Secondly, who cares about a selvage line?

So I gave the 501 STF's a shot. They are terrible on me. I tried shrinking them twice, while the waist was the right size they are total hammer pants. I tried on the Gap skinny's again and the waist isn't as bad as I thought at first, but I just don't feel like they are working for me.

501's:


Gap Skinny's:


A pair of Lucky's that I'm OK with:

I agree with both statements here. I'm open to suggestions for jeans that will work for a guy as skinny as me. The only thing I'm not really into are the tight skinny jeans.
