    Thanks lefty, I'm going to give those a try.

    Edit: Bummer, none in my size. I'll have to search around to see if anyone else carrys them.


    What's your size? 29x34 is available, and according to the Lee sale thread, these stretch a lot and sizing down 1 seems like the way to go.

    With your stats, are you sure you couldn't fit into the 29"?

    If not, then the APC NS from denimbar.

    Thanks for all the respones. I think I could fit into the 29 but I think 34 is too long. In dress pant I usally have them hemmed to 30.5 and jeans I usually get 32. Since they taper, I'm not sure shortening them is a good idea?

    I don't like excessive stacking and tend to roll mine, but I wouldn't sweat hemming them.

    They have a pretty good return policy, so grab them and see how you go. Warning ... these have a low rise, but on the plus side they're pretty far from Dad jeans.

    Thanks guys, I'll give the lee's a try. With the 20% coupon they seem like a decent deal. The APC NS look very nice as well and they're only about $40 more with the discount.

    Size of the hem. I think it's 19cm in size 32, and goes up or down .5cm as the waist size goes up or down an inch.

    they are a 29, but i've had them altered so the hem is not at true size anymore. My thoughts were that the one with productnumber ending 550184 instead of 530184 is a 21.

    I bought a pair of these Rab & Bone RB15 5147 NEW Indigo Non-Selvedge jeans in size 30 (my true waist is 30). The 29's were too tight, these jeans fit great... more room in the thighs/butt/legs than my NS..

    I'm just wondering how to care for them.

    1. They are definately a LOT lighter denim, softer as well. So I'm not sure if they're exactly RAW... does anyone know for sure? It says on the tag "This denim has undergone minimum treatment to preserve the natural integrity of the fabric... For best results wash your jeans as little as possible." Maybe they're rinsed once of something of the sort (I have no idea).

    2. So, should I wait 6 months like my NS to wash? Not sure if i'll get good fades since they're so soft already.. is there a way to keep the color the way it is? Right now they looks blacker than the NS even though they're indigo. What will a rinse instead of wash do?

    3. How much will these shrink in length? Don't know if they're sanforized or not.

    4. Will the waist stretch out much?

    Thanks!

    anyone here from toronto try sydneys for a custom pair of jeans? I am very close to pulling the pin, but at $425 wonder if anyone has comments or experience with him.

    He seems like a nice guy and I like the concept of supporting someone like him.

    The choices are a slubby ora standard 14 oz selvedge, with either a slim fit or full fit based on your measurements and preferences.

    bure,

    the R&Bs are one-wash, they just aren't starched quite as heavily as APCs, so they don't feel as thick or heavy, at least when the APCs are newer.

    Take care of them like you take care of any other pair of jeans - wash them when you can't handle the stink or the layers of sweat caked on the inside. R&Bs produce some really unique color when they're worn-in.

    thanks brian for answering, i was afraid my post would get lost in this big thread !

    i'll hold off from washing, but i think i need to get them hemmed. if they're one-wash, would that mean they've shrunk in length already? THANKS teach[​IMG]
