1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    5ep, pbj, 45rpm, iron heart, any other suggestions?

    I would have to guess SDA's SD-103XX or SD-101XX would also be candidates as they're dipped in natural indigo 24 times (or so I recall reading).

    Does anyone have any experience with the PBJ xx-007? I am trying to figure out what size to get and if the rise is ball bustingly low? I know BIG has measurements on their site but I've seen a couple pics of people wearing them and they didn't seem to be the 9inch Rise like BIG says. So im kind of confused. Anyone can offer any help to me just PM me or post back here. Thanks I would really appreciate it. BTW, Im about 5'7-5'8 165 wear a 30 in RRDS 29 in APC if that means anything.

    I'm pretty new to this. I'm looking to purchase a pair of straight jeans, with black Kicking Mule Workshop 1980s, some straight rag & bone indigo, or nudie regular ralf dry selvage indigo.

    Straight svens look okay too. Are there any preferences on this board for any of those?

    How long does it take to wear jeans in? Also, when washing to maintain shape, is this a problem when working with dry indigo? Should I just get it dry-cleaned?

    Thanks much, sorry for all the questions. I'll try to research on my own.

    21cm are going to be a tad less fitted all the way around.

    Maybe it's a reference to Clueless? I assume the JJ Abrams is a reference to Lost...

    is there anything that fits like a NS (or at least not much fuller) in the legs but a slightly higher rise and more room in the hips/seat.

    Ok, this has been bugging me for a while. Nobody says pant, trouser, pajama, or boxer so why say jean?

    Clinton on 'What Not To Wear' says this all the time. It's a womenswear affectation, apparently.

    Bingo. And Richard Linklater for "Dazed and Confused."

    Okay SF'ers. I have finally decided to jump into the Raw Denim arena.

    To start with, I'm 5'6ish around 120 lbs, so a skinny motherfucker basically.

    At the moment, I'm wearing Levi's (29 x 30) and they fit pretty decent. I can get away wearing them without belt, not too loose basically (probably because they are stretched out? I think I recall them being tight initially). And I'm looking for the thin (but not girly-jeans tight) and slim fit and on Denimbar I noticed that Acne Max in Raw aren't too terribly priced (I have rather low budget) so I think I will settle on these:

    http://www.denimbaronline.com/store/...PARTMENT_ID=38

    Acne Max in Raw.

    What is the general consensus for Acne jeans sizing? Should I go with 28 X 32? Will that work out and accomodate any (slight) stretching? Or should I stick to 29 X32?

    Pity Denimbar doesn't carry APC huh. I've been lurking forums for the longest time, and I hear about APC NS all the time.

    Denimbar carries APC, just not on their website.

    I think if you call them up maybe they take orders? (I know using a phone is rather antiquated)

    Hmm...I've tried them on and absolutely loved them. I'm not sure if you're used to wearing a belt like I am, but I'd probably stick to your Levi's size. They're pretty fitted as it is and I can't imagine having to beg for the Max's to stretch out another inch for me to feel comfortable. The denim is no big deal, as is the construction, but the fit is awesome in my book.

    What jeans fit similarly to the 5EPxSF (low-mid rise, fitted top block, taper below the knee) but with more room in the thigh? Another way of putting it is: what fitted jeans are known for being slim in the waistband and top-block in comparison to the thigh?

    Unfortunately, I can't help you. I'm kind of looking for the opposite... I'm looking for similar top block, similar thigh, but less taper below the knee. Any suggestions?

    Studio D'Artisan 103 or Rag & Bone RB11?
