    I wear skinny/slim leg jeans and turn up the cuffs, good opportunity to show off selvage too! Not that anyone will notice... [​IMG]

    Where can I find 5ep in NYC?

    OAK in manhatthan said they dont carry them, and bloomie's on 59th didnt appear to have them either, which were the two places I heard stocked them here...

    Am i mistaken, or is there somewhere else?

    I'm looking for a pair of cheap white jeans. I'd prefer a pair of 514s, since I like the fit, but I can't seem to find anybody that sells them. It's pretty frustrating because I can hardly find a place that doesn't sell white 501s and 511s, while the ONLY white 514 I found was on ebay and 4 inches too big in the waist.

    Is there somewhere I'm overlooking, or should I wait until summer gets closer, or should I look for another cut/brand?


    Try Banana Republic

    Is it true that if I machine wash raw denim, the denim will get softer? Is there a way to reverse this?

    If you wash your raw denim it will lose its starch. You can always starch them again if you'd like.

    Are the Nudie jeans true to size? Do I need to size up or down?

    Really depends on the cut. I sized down one for my Joes and the fit is perfect.
