    I'm a girl looking at some APC bootcuts, anyone out there have any idea on sizing/ recomeendations for other dry denim?

    Also, Has anyone ordered over the phone from the Denim Bar in VA? How's their service, return policy?

    APC doesn't make bootcuts. They make straight and taper legs only.

    Nudie/Denimbirds make dry bootcuts that should be right for you, along with Earnest Sewn's Hefners, which is also available dry.

    Dealing with Denim Bar is pretty good. Cheaper than just about anywhere else, and fast service.

    Actually, APC does make one bootcut jean for women, usually referred to as the "Hipster". Ask Brian about sizing.

    My bad, I could've sworn that the Hipster was just a low rise straight leg.

    It is, if the APC website's "Women's Jeans" are Hipsters. The cut is based on the new standard with a 2cm lower rice and one less button. Actually, I don't think the New Standard is a straight leg, its tapered AFAIK. I don't own any.

    That's what I thought. I almost bought a pair for myself when I went to the APC store on Mercer. [​IMG]

    Yea, confusion as always with this one: The APC Hipster (women's jean) is not actually a boot cut - it's a completely straight leg from the knee down.

    APC does not actually make a bootcut jean, only straight and tapered.

    I think Acne would be my choice for women's dry denim. Nudie and Denimbird back pockets are not very flattering, unless your ass is just absolutely amazing and it looks good in anything.

    Hmm, since my info was off, I feel that I need to provide something useful. The Nudie bootcut Ola is pretty much a unisex jean, and has a slight bootcut. Reasonably priced too, at ~$155.

    I've never gotten anything from Mauro (at the Denim Bar) but from all accounts, his customer service is good and prices very reasonable. I've talked to Mauro lots of times on the phone, and he is a pretty cool guy in any case.

    Is the Paige one rinse in the Hollywood Hills cut, or the Laurel Canyon, or something else?

    Those look completely sweet. What are his prices like?

    I don't really know for sure, but one of the threads says $150 shipped anywhere.

    If they're the Patriot wash (#53), go for them. The jeans I just posted in the "Post pics of your denim" thread is a 53 Fulton.
