    searching didn't really yield good answers.

    anyone know what sizing should be for Acne Max Cash. Size Up, Down, Same??

    thanks

    Same or sized down one. It's completely up to you.

    how about Rag and Bone RB11s? Tobi has them in black plus their discount code sweetens the pot.

    couple things. it looks like one sizes down on these. am i correct?

    and how much is it to typically taper the hem/leg for a smaller leg opening. it measures at 9in and would possibly want to take it down to 8-8.5in. I don't think this would be too crazy to do.

    bad word choice on my part. the fades are very visible, it's just that i'm at the "indigo and white", not "blue and white" or "indigo and blue"... haha.

    what if i pour in some clorox? i just want some blueness... my previous pair had come out so, very, nice.


    Just wash it a bit more, or even warmer if you want. Every time you do that it'll reduce the contrast and take out some indigo getting closer to the blue you want.

    I'm looking for a place that I can send my jeans to and they will repair them for me. I have a few pairs of old jeans that I still wear fairly often even though they're falling apart a bit. They're just some of my more comfortable jeans that I don't necessarily wear to be fashion-concious.

    I don't really have a tailor around me that will do sort of custom work on my jeans. I've asked around a bit and my primary tailor really only will do work on my suits for me.

    A few things that I'd like done to a few pairs of my jeans: waist brought in an inch or two on one pair, patches put on a pair, a few reinorced areas, some reinforcement for the bottom hem that is ripping up the back of the leg.

    Anyone know where I can get these kinds of repairs done?

    Would search but feeling lazy

    I want a pair of Imperial dukes but I'm not sure what size to get. I have a pair of nudie average joes in 36 and I like the fit on them. Also, are they sanforized or will I need to size up to make up for the soaking?

    Why not get a slimmer R&B cut? Like the overdyed RB9 whodini had on here.


    Don't get me wrong, the RB11 is a great cut; I actually just splurged for a black pair myself. But they are cut straight not tapered, and not nearly as slim as the Max Cash, what you seem to be looking for.

    Can someone give a comparison between 45rpm Sorahikos and Sorahikos slim? I'm just wondering what they consider slim.

    yeah, actually i was looking at the max thinking it was a different cut, but it will be too slim for me. hopefully the rb11s work out. i took advantage of the deal on tobi for 25% off. did you size down on you black rb11s
