    This is kind of an odd question but, here it goes:

    I'd like to get my dad a pair of decent jeans. He has like 20 pairs of ugly wash wranglers that he rotates, and they just look terrible. He's recently lost some what so hopefully he'll recognize that when he sees the smaller waist size. Does Wrangler make anything raw?


    Yes they do.

    Unfortunately those don't come in 35/36 waist haha. I don't think he's down to a 34 yet. Unless they stretch a lot? Also, that cut may be too slim.

    What is the Denime 66 cut similar to? Is it a repro straight or slim cut? Anyone have measurements on a size 29-30?

    which one should i buy

    1) PBJ xx-005bk

    2) Samurai 710bk

    3) Imperial dukes black.

    i want a slimmer straight leg/ slight taper black jean. i bought some 19cms just to try out and my thighs are way too huge for them. i wear a 32 in NS. anything with around a 12in thigh will fit me fine. i'm not sure about the higher rise on the imperials. and i want some thing that will fade really fast

    i just got APC New Cures and was wondering after how many months would it look best do to first wash?
    It depends how hard you wear them. There is no time limit where they magically look good. If you wear your jeans really hard and get a lot of creasing, honeycombs, and stuff like that you can do it whenever. Some people wear their jeans for 3 months and they look awesome and worn in, others wear them for 8 months and they look brand new

    I don't think you should bother with black jeans if you're going into it with the expectation that they will fade very fast.

    That said, the 710BK is going to fade significantly better than the others you listed.

    PBJs fade pretty easily. I mean, they're not like nudies or apc, but as far as a lot of japanese jeans go, they can be broken in pretty quickly and result in some pretty nice fading due to the great color they have.

    Even the black ones? I don't think I've ever seen any good pairs.

    Oh, my bad. I was thinking indigo. Yea, the only good black jean fades i've seen are poly's samurais.

    can anyone tell me what the difference is between the dior 21 cm and the 19 cm?
    i know it is in the cut, but can you let me know in detail where and what is the difference and why the 21 cm is always the more preferred. thank you

    On a size 31 or 32 jean (most say to size down 1 or maybe 2 on diors though) the CM refers to the hem measurement . 21cm or 19cm. The 19cm, obviously, is slimmer which is why a lot of members here prefer the more forgiving 21cm cut. The hem opening goes down along with the waist size (i think a size 30 made in japan dior19cm measures about 18-18.5cm).

    There's also a slight difference in the Made in Italy (mii) and made in japan (mij). The made in japan ones are a bit more expensive but fit a bit slimmer overall and some prefer the denim more.

    This is it... first pair ever.

    APC Rescue 34x34.

    My waist is 35" measured. I usually wear 36" jeans. 6'1", 220lbs, 24" thighs for reference.

    I guess I should pull 'em up, eh?

    So, what now? Thoughts?


    Hate to be an attention whore but how is the fit?

    premo, they look fine IMO. Kinda tight in the thighs though. Its a bit weird to see tight up top and loose down bottom.
