    This is meant to be the main thread for anyone needing recommendations for their next pair(s) of jeans since "Ask a Question" was far too confusing of a thread title. Please post your questions instead of beginning your own new thread. Queries will be answered in the order they were received. Thanks.

    Saw this post, and since nobody's answering my topic yet...

    **repost**

    I am 6'2", around 170lbs and I'm looking for jeans I can wear with my boots. The jeans I have now are from Viktor (it's a brand which makes custom jeans back in the Philippines) and the ones I got was a straight leg since I wore Chucks a lot, so the opening at the leg is rather large (the boot is quite slim)

    Can anyone help me? I'm a t-shirt and jeans sort of dude..

    I have a jean. Actually jeans, and they are new. Which leg should go in first, left or right, if I want to develop the most sickest fades?

    And you're happy with the wide leg? Or are you looking for a different style? If you are happy with the jeans, a measurement of the leg opening and thigh would help so we can refer you to similarly cut jeans. Also what are you willing to spend, and are you looking for dry/raw denim and/or selvage?

    How does sizing work for Samurai 710XX? If I wear 28-30 in most jeans (28 APC NS for example) what tagged size would I get? Basically after soaking/stretching is done which tagged size ends up around 30"?

    It sounds like you'll want to go 32 depending on how you want to wear the jeans. I think BiG said the new batch of sami's were shrinking 2" from tagged size (32 tagged to 30" post-wash)

    Just like normal, non-Emo jeans...So generally buy 2 sizes (tagged) bigger than what you normally wear I gather.

    Ok, this has been bugging me for a while. Nobody says pant, trouser, pajama, or boxer so why say jean?


    jeans
    1. Plural form of jean.
    2. (plural only; not used in singular form) A pair of trousers made from denim cotton, normally dyed dark blue.

    I'm looking for a timeless style which will look good with whatever I wear. The leg opening was kind of wide, and I thought that it kind of looks weird with the slimness of the boot.

    I'll get measurements ASAP.

    Money's not really an issue here...

    It refers to the fabric, which is why "..." works so well on top of playing off of MLK,Jr. One might have a jean.... jacket? pair of pants? wallet? diaper?

    you forgot to add "condom" to that list.

    I am 6'2", around 170lbs and I'm looking for jeans I can wear with my boots.

    if your jeans fit you well but it's only the hem opening that's bothering you, try taking them to a tailor to taper the pants even more, which will cost $10-20 USD. other than that, i don't really understand your question...give more specifics!

    Won't that look weird though? I mean, wouldn't having to adjust the hem opening mean having to adjust everything else? And it's time for a pair of new jeans anyway, I haven't gotten a couple since a (nearly) year ago.

    Please tell me what else you need so I can give you more details...I really want to wair these boots LOL

    what would come out with sicker fades
    thin finns in dry stretch or some new cures?
    i was some super tapered jeans and cant decide between the two.

    i think thin finns are cut a bit looser in the thighs which would probably be better for me. any thoughts?

    I have a pair of 5EPxSF and a pair of 45rpm Sorahikos. I'm looking for something in between. Something not quite skinny, but slim. I like the upper thigh of the 5EPxSF, but the lower leg is too tight. The top block is a bit tight as well. I was thinking of maybe a pair of Studio D'Artisan SD-103. Does this fit the bill? Any other good alternatives?

    http://mynudies.com/gallery/showimage.php?i=4256&c=12 I'm sure NC is a good jean, not that I've seen a hell of a lot of people wearing them around here, but the TF is truly a great (comfortable) jean. The stretch might change the fading qualities some but as you can see in the pics, if fading's the goal then you'll probably get what you want.
