I'm looking for a pair of jeans from the best Japanese denim, regular fit which look amazing worn both with blazers/preppy clothes and with casual street wear.

Can you guys recommend a link from where I can buy a pair off the net (within Europe)?

Thanks!

So you're expecting a miracle pair of jeans that fit you perfectly and make girls' jaw drop when you walk down the street?

True Religion.

But seriously, I think you would be better doing some research yourself rather than expecting us to show you the magnum opus of jeans, because honestly, I don't think there is one. Every jean lends its cut, style and potentially wash to the owner and it is up to them and their body as to how good that pair of jeans will look.

Also mentioning it will be worn with blazers/preppy clothing and casual streetwear is like saying "I'll wear them most of the time with some form of other clothing", doesn't help much and the meanings vary largely from person to person as to what 'preppy' and 'casual streetwear' is.

Good points..

I'm actually just hoping for some recommendations in terms of a great pair of jeans from Japanese denim (best quality I assume?) that are on sale for a decent price..

I'm thinking of buying two pairs now that the sales started online..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How are Ksubi?? Is there a model you would recommend?

Can you buy them from an internet shop within the E.U.?

+1 on Iron Heart. The 634S is by far the best pair of denim I've ever owned.

Am I the only one who don't find the denim on Iron Hearts to be that amazing? I haven't seen any really good worn in jeans from Iron Heart. I recommend the Denime 66 XX to the creator of this thread. Great denim with awesome fading possibilities and a very timeless fit.
