Hi guys, Pretty new to denim/jeans, I've done some googling and found this site and some useful threads, but I still have a few questions. I'm 5"5, about 135-140lbs with 23" thighs, 27.5-28" waist. I can wear (and prefer) some slim fitted jeans, and after some research I decided that Levi's 514 would probably be best for me and my wallet. I just have a couple questions about the 514's that could use some clarifications: Will they fade/distress well? (I'm talking about the Raw Headbanger Rigid, Tumbled Rigid, and Rigid Selvedge versions) http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=373013 I checked out some of the older threads regarding this cut, and the reviews are pretty mixed. If they aren't that great, what other beginner denim jeans would you recommend for a person with my build? (Budget is around $100) All help/tips would be appreciated, many thanks!
