    What are some denims that fit similar to the Ande Whall Cougar's that will tend to stay dark?

    It'd help if you also state your size.


    But from the look of it, Acne Mic fit the bill.

    I have a pair of raw takumi jeans that I got from BiG, and am ready to soak them for the first time. I was wondering if there's a specific way to wash them, what to was them with, etc. I've also heard of wearing them in the tub to shrink them to size and whatnot. Any info would be great, thanks!

    I'm in the size 34 category on that chart I posted up. I'll look into the Acne's. Any other suggestions?

    Are there any stores that carry APC? I want to buy a pair as my first raw denim, but I'd like to try them on first.

    Where do you live? That'd help.

    If you can get to DC that'd probably be your best bet. Farinelli's constantly restocks. APC isn't something you're going to find at a mall.

    what's the deal with everyone asking for or vying for the jeans with red tab?

    samurai, pbj, etc, if they have red tab, does it come with it or blah blah blah

    what advantage does it have over the newer distributed models?

    ok cool. i see. as long as it's nothing about construction, type of denim sourced, or anything like that.
    thanks

    Hi,

    I am 31yrs, 5'11, 34/35 waist, with a bit of a belly. The rest of my body is slender, but my backside also needs some work, minimal.

    My legs are fine, no excess weight.

    I usually wear Levis 505 Jeans in a medium stonewash blue.

    Was looking for suggestions for some alternates to the Levis 505, the fit is good, but maybe something nicer in terms or quality, finish, colors, effects etc.

    I like a regular fit and usually wear these with polo tshirts.

    Any suggestions please?

    Thanks,
    desidude
