Hi guys,

A few weeks (perhaps months) ago I made a post in which I asked for advice for a rather cheap pair of jeans (under 125$).

I am now prepared to pay between 125 and 200$ so I think I'll have more opportunities.

Here's the deal: I am looking for a jeans that's fitted, not skin-tight, and roomy in the rear (while I am a thin guy, my rear isn't, which is rather odd). I went to Boutique U&I yesterday because I wanted to try on some raw New Standards but they didn't have any. My waist is 30 and I am 5'8", so I probably have some alteration to make... I am looking for a blue jeans. I don't care all that much wether or not it's raw, but I might like to try a raw one.

I hope the 30% coupon at Revolve still works.

Thanks a lot.

You seem like a perfect client for size 28 (actually a size 30) Raw New standards ordered from APC's website. Just watch out for the price gouging as they use a private carrier (UPS?) so they'll try to charge you like $50 to take care of customs. Ask APC to use regular US mail or ask them to send you a tracking number then call UPS to say you'll handle customs. You'll have to go to dorval, get your jeans then go to a canada customs building nearby. Hope that helps

Wouldn't Mauro from the Denimbar be a better option if I can't go to Dorval? I don't have a car at the moment and paying 50$ custom fees is quite ridiculous.

Oh yeah forgot about Mauro, the prices he had on APC were excellent....

Okay. So I guess I'll call later next week, or perhaps in two weeks I don't know, and get 28 NS.

Thanks for your help!
