    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.
