Grey jeans shoot-out thread

I've decided that I want a pair of grey jeans before Spring. Now there are plenty of SF-approved brands that offer grey jeans- NDG, W+H, APC, Acne, ES, NDG, Ksubi, and R&B, etc.- but finding online reatilers for these particular jeans jasn't been easy for me.

The APC jeans I've seen, for instance, is a darker grey than I'd like. I thought it would be nice if we could get some pictures of these particular models in this thread, and have some cursory information about fit and quality.

The NDGs on Context, are much more to my liking, although might even be a shade too light.

Since it's not so important to break them in from a raw state, grey jeans are something I'd be much more comfortable buying second-hand, and washing immediately before wearing. Does anybody have any pairs they'd be willing to let go of? (I'm a size 30 in most jeans.)

+1 on the NDG jeans. Oh, and you listed NDG twice, if it matters.

Thanks. The NDGs on Context are more to my liking, but it's good to know they have both dark and light grey jeans. Perhaps APC is the same way?

I'm getting rid of some J. Lindeberg grey denim in a 30 waist and 32 or 33 length. The Jay. You have to PM me though because we can't talk about it here. I'm conflicted on them, let me know.

I have a pair of grey Levi's 511 I got a year or so ago that are about the color you seem to be interested in. I can't seem to find them online at the moment, but I got mine for around $20 on sale. They aren't as nice as the NDG of course, but not bad for $20.

Hejfina had some beautiful S2A's for SS08, sadly they sold out before I could order.

Uh... I've been researching this one for ages. I've tried on many, compared styles, washes, fit, quality, etc. Basically I think the top contender is really the NDG, and right behind are the W+H's, APC's (I believe last season was a different shade to this season - one was light, other dark). of course there are also the Dior Dauphin's Some info/ideas... Levi 511?
