    I like the rescues but found out they don't come in anything smaller than a 29. My jean size is 29 and I heard it's best to size at least 2 down.

    What other choices are out there for me with the similiar quality and cut? I'd like to stay around the same price range as well?

    5eP, Opi maybe??

    Hey fellas....

    I have a pair of nudie reg ralf dry selvage. I have about 3-4 months wear and they have stretched a fair amount.

    Should I soak these to shrink them back to normal? I would hate to ruin the fading.


    Thanks in advance

    I tried the max in my usual size (32) and thought they fit perfectly. That said, I'm pretty sure they only stretch the typical amount (.5-1') so you might be fine if you don't have trouble with the occasional soak.

    There's a never-ending debate about how long you should wait to wash jeans. The 6 month rule is given as a general guideline to enhance contrast but people take this as gospel.

    Cold soak the jeans (read: no agitation) and you should be fine. Indigo loss will be minimal although they might come out a bit softer than before.

    Thanks for the reply houdini...


    I was just thinking. Would it be possible to shrink them back without water? Maybe throwing them in the dryer for a little while?

    I have a jean. It's 5EP x SF.

    And I want a similar fit in a new jean, preferably raw.

    Thanks.

    I'm not a magician.

    Heat will shrink clothes so do what you want.

    Which ones are they, drizzt? Soft Inference? I haven't tried them but i'm sure there is a superfuture member who has. I suggest going into that dior thread in superdenim and asking there.

    They're some sort of grey/blue raw denim, I dunno what they're called but they're on eluxury.

    Having just passed the one year anniversary on my PBJ xx-005s I am now on the prowl for a new pair of jeans. I bought a pair of the Ande Whall Grifters, but they fit a little too large on me and so I am planning on selling these in the B&S. In the mean time I am now looking for a new pair. I love the true straight leg fit on my PBJs and I'm looking for something similar (~8" opening), but I'm open to trying new fits (such as APC NS). My PBJs are a 32 but I probably should have gotten a 31. Right now the candidates include:

    APC New Standard (30)
    KMW 1980s (31)
    Acne Mic Raw (I don't know what size. Advice?)

    I have reviewed all the threads on these and am leaning to one pair in particular right now, but any other suggestions or comparisons between these would be greatly appreciated.

    Much obliged.
