    What store is great for jeans? Dolce, Tom Ford, Dior Homme, etc? I have no idea where to start and limited time to look. Which salespeople know their shit and which will dupe me? I am a 34 inch waist, 5'9".

    (I have a pair of APC raw denim, a buttery soft pair of AG jeans, and a raw denim from Gilded Age.)

    Thank you all so much!

    If you're a denim junkie I would skip Beverly Hills and go to SelfEdge.

    Skip Rodeo, it is a tourist trap and strictly label brands. Like mentioned above hit Slef Edge on La Brea, or American Rag on La Brea. There is an APC Store on Melrose and RRL as well as Nudie. Many many other great spots in L.A., but Rodeo ain't worth checking out.

    90% of the people just window shop and take pics. It takes such a long time to get there going down through the West Side because of all the tourists. The only 2 places I visit are LeatherSoul and Barneys.

    I agree with you on Melrose. Wear some comfy shoes, park on Melrose and walk and enjoy the day :)

    Come to Self Edge, we're on La Brea and have the largest selection of raw selvedge jeans from Japan in the country. We'll be able to help you find the right pair of jeans.
