    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You conceal your firearm in your pocket? Rag&Bone has some pretty big pockets, maybe you can find the old rb6 since it seems like they've gone slimmer these days. I'm still kind of confused why you're not holstering it but...

    It'd help to know where you live and from there we can give you retail location advice.


    Yes. I conceal sometimes in my front pocket. I have a holster for pockets so it's concealed and holstered. If I'm just wearing a Tshirt, the holster will stick out like a sore thumb. With the pocket holster, you'll never know it's there. Anyway, thanks for the tip on Rag & Bone. I'll have to check them out. I live in Pittsburgh.

    Not sure where in Pittsburgh you'd find Rag & Bone. I think they opened a Barney's Co-Op in Philly over around Rittenhouse this past summer so maybe take a day trip?

    Check out Moda in shadyside, on Walnut street. They used to carry rag and bone, they still might. Word of warning though, the employees at Moda are some of the worst sales people I have ever encountered, and the owner is a real dick. I don't shop there anymore because I'm fed up with how I'm treated. But, theyre good to try on shit like Nom de Guerre and Robert Geller before you buy it from someone else.

    Is there a specific thread or site where it tells you exactly how to take care of and break in a pair of raw denim? I'm working my way on these Nudies right now and I want to make sure I don't mess anything up (It's my first time).

    I have a question about the 3 jeans on the homepage of 5ep (http://www.5ep.com).

    Are the jeans, from left to right - 1) Worn, 2) Resin, 3)Raw? Also, are they a true representation of the actual colors.

    looking for something that fits exactly like the nudie AJ sized down 1. Most importantly, needs to have a hem 8" or just slightly less. Looking for a heavier jean. Do you think Dior 21cm or Acne mics will fit the bill?

    Looking for a new pair of jeans. I love the fit on my ajdh but I'd like a slightly smaller leg opening since they tend to go past the back of my chucks and get walked on. Any suggestions?

    I have a pair of Nudie Thin Finn Dry Stretch jeans.

    I love the color of these jeans as is, and I honestly don't care THAT much about fading and making my jeans unique.

    I kind of want to maintain this dark indigo color. Is there anyway I can do this, or will they fade over time no matter what?

    I have both the AJ and the Mics. The Mics are close in fit, but a bit lower rise and a little more fitted from the knee down.

    You could...not wear them. They'll stay dark as long as you don't wash them but eventually they're going to fade no matter what.

    what do you guys think? i don't like super skinny jeans (worried about the APC NS) but want something to flatter may athletic body (girls say i have an awesome ass).

    The Squires are not skinny by any means. If you want somewhat of a fuller cut than APC NS then they would be a good option.

    Hello again, I got my pair of Nudie Straight Svens in Dry Selvage, but now I have another couple questions about the break in. They came as a 34 inseam, I usually wear a 32, so I had it hemmed to just under 33 and they fit great. It's been 3 full days of wear, and now I have really, really bad knee boobs! Is that supposed to happen? They are so bad that they almost flop over onto my shins...

    Here is a picture from paint to illustrate my point (I couldn't find my camera last night and now I'm at work [​IMG] ):

    [​IMG]

    Is there anything I can do to stop these or will they settle down on their own over time?

    Also, I play water polo and I'm in the pool an awful lot, and I don't always have time or a way to rinse off after practice. What effect will chlorine have on the break-in process? Thanks!

    They are normal. Embrace them now as they will disappear over the years but like real boobs.
