    Sizes 25-30 have the shorter inseam (~34") while 31-36 have the longer (~36").

    Sorta looking for a summer friendly jean, you know roll them up a tad and throw on some boat shoes. I wear only APCs now and they can get a bit heavy for Floridas crazy heat/humidity. Some grey NDG jeans were on my mind but I also want an Indigo denim. I'd prefer selvage cotton but I understand thats heavy.
    need moar suggestions edit: Whodini suggestion of Jean Shop Selvage Chambray jeans was unexpected but after thinking about it holy shit these would be PERFECT. I'm sure they roll perfectly to match with boat shoes and a simple AA shirt, maybe organic color. There is no way I can pay $300 dollars though, maybe they will hit the sale bin soon.

    ^ Crate Route use 11oz selvedge denim, and come out to less than half that after affiliate discount.


    Many Rag & Bone jeans use summerweight denim as well.

    You're right, those do look nice. The EG 8oz Who also suggested looks REALLY comfortable, are they selvage? Well I just went from having no options to having a few.

    i was thinking of making my next purchase a pair of jean shop skinnys, but im unsure about the sizing. i've read that they run about 2 sizes larger, but then read of guys sizing down 4. i usually wear a 29" waist, so i'm thinking a 27"/26" would be alright? anyone know if it's more straight legged than tapered? oh, and i usually go for jeans that fit closest to slim jims.

    Other than Evisus what brands, or models, still come with a crotch rivet?

    Some Earnest Sewn jeans have a crotch rivet.

    Hi, I'm new here and not even sure really where to post. Anyways, I was wondering if any of you could tell me what kind of jeans these are? And if they are slim fit or what? I really like they the way they fit. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!

    I'm not sure I follow. There are quite a few different RRL cuts that come in all sizes and do stretch.

    I'm sure you can search but soap and water tend to do the trick.

    every1s advice was pretty vague but i ended up doing it on cold with a little detergent.

    worked out great. i didnt have sick fades before, ive only been wearing for 5 months so i have light fading coming in with the wallet pocket, knees, crotch area and honeycombs and other areas near the honeycombs are really faded.

    i washed early so i that i can was them liek 4 times and have a different pair of jeans every time.

    pics tomorrow.

    I wouldn't worry so much about taking pictures of 5-month APCs as I would spelling words such as, "every1s."

    Should I size down in the PBJ XX-005s or should I just play it safe and get a size 29? I was just going to go by the size-down 2 rule and get sz 27s. I took at 27 in my first pair of NS's and while they were tight at first they have stretched out quite nicely. I don't really have a tape measure at hand so I can't identify my true waist [​IMG]

    if you're going to come at my english/writing prowess you're barking up the wrong tree big guy.

    <----- scored better than you on any english/writing exam ever and has been published several times. also english major.

    however, i completely understand that you have a reputation to uphold here on styleforum.

    i respect the effort.

    PS: i will keep track of the pics btw because i want to create something similar to this:

    [​IMG]

    credit xcoalesce of sufu on his APCs. washed once a month for the first four months he had them. so he says. seems almost unbelievable unless he runs up and down hills all day.
