    Sorry, i must have misread it. But having owned the 514s, they were pretty snug in the top block in your true size, and i'm used to slim jeans.

    i don't know if this is the right thread i've searched on google and forums. anyone know of a online store that has flat head f310 in waist 28 in stock?

    thanks in advance


    I assume you already checked Self Edge (which is out of W28 F310 if you didn't), so you're pretty much out-of-luck for any easy online purchase of F310. You could try purchasing from a Japanese site that ships out of Japan (this will likely require some language competency or translation) or finding a proxy service (I'm no expert on either of these, so it would be best to ask someone else).

    If you're not up for that, you should PM Kiya and ask he expects any restocks on the F310.

    Other possibilities are the 1001 or 3001 from Flathead, which are essentially the same cuts as F310 (according to Self Edge's site) with different details, such as poly-cotton vs. all-cotton stitching.

    my 514s are quite loose in the thigh. not too loose, but a good amount of room. i'm going to pick up another pair in fact, they're nice and straight below the thigh but a solid amoutn of thigh room.

    I thought most stores on rakuten didn't even ship to the states. You should probably be using a proxy.

    Hi Im new to this forum and keep hearing about Raw Denim and stuff. I was wondering how they feel on the Legs, are they stiff, rigid like they look in the pictures? Are they pretty confortable and not itchy?I usually wear pre faded(but not super faded) jeans from the mall low ride, boot cut, loose, what would u guys suggest for me to try?

    really? dang it. i was hoping that i could avoid buying via proxy but if this is the case then darn...
    for those of you who used a proxy, how much was shipping. i'm assuming proxies commissions are about 10-15%

    Is there a proper way to stack long slim denim for good honeycombing? Do you just pull it up to the knees and let gravity do the rest?

    i'm considering Nudies Even Steven. my measurements are:

    Waist: 29"
    Hips: 34"
    Thighs: 19.5"
    Calves: 13"

    i don't want my jeans to fit real tight on my thighs though because they're pretty skinny and it doesn't look right to me. what do you guys think about nudies?

    Im basically looking for a straight leg/slim bootcut jean that comes in a dark wash (not necessarily "raw" as I do not really like the color of raw denim until after it has been washed and I am already breaking in a pair of rescues) and ideally has no obviously visible writing on the back pockets.

    I do not really want anything with a tapered leg as I find it is too hard to fit over boots.

    I ordered and returned a pair of 5ep LDB as they just didn't fit right. People have mentioned RRL slim bootcut but I havent seen any where I am.

    I possibly thought about ordering another pair of rescues and just washing them a couple times when they arrive so they turn that nice indigo blue but that seems like a bit of waste.


    I would love to hear others suggestions about brands to try.

    Thanks

    The RRL slim boot isn't a bootcut really, it's similiar to the 5EP LDB.

    I'm looking for something similar to APC NS in terms of fit, so tapered but nothing extreme and mid-rise. A pair of Rag and Bones (RB17) caught my eye on DenimBar. From what I read, the higher the number, the skinnier it gets and the RB15's fit is comparable to APC NS. Does anyone own a pair of RB17 or can definitely say that the RB17 would be way too tapered for me?
