    nom de guerre inside out jeans, thank you 50% off context

    Have you gotten the chance to wear yours much? I just picked up a pair yesterday and they are tight. Like ball cleavage tight. I am just wondering how much they stretch. My indigos were just as tight but stretched out to be perfect.

    I second the white jeans=bad for travel thing. I wore a pair yesterday (it was 10 degrees here), so I endorse wearing them at all times of the year, but would never take them on a trip. They just get dirty to easily.

    Also, where are you going in Spain. Madrid is frigid this time of the year. Not miami-like in the least. You could still wear them, but it might not be in the way you were expecting.


    As to the first point: Totally agree, except I'll have at least two other pairs of pants with me, one regular jeans, the other a pair of cotton/nylon theory pants with some extra pockets I wear for long flights.

    As to the second: It'll be Barcelona in March, which I think will be somewhat warmer, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    this talk of white jeans getting dirty is ridiculous. just let them be dirty. they are white, but they are still jeans. i don't currently have a pair that i wear, but i did a while back and i found that the best thing to do with white jeans is to wear them as though they are raws. just do what you will in them, let them get dirty, don't bother washing, and enjoy the look. clean white jeans are for pussies.

    I know less of Barcelonan weather than that of Madrid, but I think I was there once in March and it was nippy if not cold. As long as you bring a jacket/sweater you should be fine. Huh. I took a glance at some old pictures to see if I could determine the weather on that trip an wouldn't you know it, there I am wearing my white jeans!

    Club Monaco's white jeans are on sale right now for $19 if you're interested in something cheaper and more disposable.

    I bought those and like them a lot. Nice cut, and the denim isn't too heavy which is great for spring/summer. Not bad for 100 dollars off its original price [​IMG]

    I just picked up these:

    from Oki-Ni. They're NDG Classic Fit.

    +1 re: SoCal's comment. If you're going to get white jeans, you gotta go with something 501 inspired / regular fitting. White jeans are such a fine line to walk.

    In that case, maybe I'll just go with the 501s on the Levis site. $59.50. Could work, seeing as I won't be wearing them a ton.
