    I want to buy my first pair of raw jeans...
    I've seen pictures of Diors and love how they wear in, but I think they may be a bit too expensive, where should I start?

    Levi's 511 might be a good option.

    It's slimmer I believe.

    Still, I'd recommend sizing down a size or two to account for the repulsive stretching.


    Does it really stretch a lot? If I wear a 30x30 on 511's, since it is slimmer, a 30 waist should suffice, even after the stretching right?

    I am also breaking in my H&M Sliqs, I like the overall fit and look and I do not mind it stretching a bit but will stretch drastically that it would change the look of the jeans? Also, do you guys think I should get it hemmed or is it ok the way it is? I do not mind cuffing the pants at all but is it still too long after the cuff?

    The Dior (atleast the 19 and 17.5 cm look) is skinny, APC New Cures are very skinny if thats not for you I think you will find a nice middle ground with the APC PS.

    Better? Thicker or thinner cuff (I rolled it over twice)? Should I stack after they settle a bit, or just stick with the cuff for this pair since they aren't stacking great?

    To me, the cuff looks much cleaner than the stacking.

    Stacks are often a little awkward at first, especially on jeans that aren't really tight around the calf, they tend to billow a little. But they will settle after some wear. If you want the stacks look, just bear with the settling in period. Otherwise, cuff or hem.

    Hello, what are some jeans with a large top block like, KMW 2010, 5EP SDZ, and Levis 1947?

    indeed. personally, i like to cuff. i can't deal with the settling period. bugs the shit out of me when my jeans dont sit well

    Do you guys wait until the first wash to hem?
    I personally prefer hemming all my jeans but worry about the shrinkage that happens after a few washes and every jean shrinks a little differently (even if sanforized)

    They're jeans, so the break doesn't have to be perfect, but err on the long side. If you hem them, hem them a half inch longer than you want them to end up.
