    ^ Yeah I thought I was missing something. But I will probably go with the APC english styles...

    Good decision. Be warned - I have heard on multiple occasions that the style is being discontinued, so once they sell out, they're sold out for good.

    Hitman,
    I second Hermes recommendation for Helmut Lang. They're about the most conventional and conservative jean found on the market today. I have no experience with APC, so I can't make comparisons. Price shouldn't be much of a factor, b/c Yoox usually has a fair selection of HL at modest-great discounts. John Varvatos also offers a similar cut to his jeans... the denim is definitely inferior compared to the major jean companies, but again, I like Varvatos' minimal styling and dark wash. Just cut the tag off the back pocket and you'll be good to go.

    $95 is cheap cheap cheap. Almost as cheap as the $85 I'm asking for the 47's on Buying/Selling [​IMG]
