    Just like gqjean, i want to buy my first pair of raw denim.
    I know APC is the standard choice and the pricing is not bad. The new standard fit looks like what I want. However, I can get some KMW 1980's for a similar price and I understand the quality is much better. Are the two similar in fit (both slim straight?) and which should i go for. (RRL is another option but i've heard mixed reviews).
    Thanks!

    APCs stretch like a hooker's gash. They will fit a lot different after 5 hours. Also the denim has a reddish brown tint that IMO is ugly, check out the Gap, or uniqlo. If you want to spend more look into Crate.

    That's your problem fattie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    also: APC's tint is more purple than anything.

    APC's don't stretch as much as everyone is making them out to, only in the waist really. As long as you size down correctly and are willing to put up with the initial discomfort it will be fine.

    Levi's 511, they're accessible, cheap, slimfit, good quality that you oh so desire, and in your price range. End of fucking story.

    Does anybody have any experience with getting out sugar based stains from raw denim?

    I have only had them for around 2 months with not very much wear, and really don't want to have to wash them yet. I was just wonder if anybody had any remedies, or if I should just cold soak them, and maybe give them a little rub.
    For anybody wondering, it is Maple Syrup. Damn stubborn lid.

    Here are some pics for size reference.

    Just spot clean. Try a damp wash cloth or an old tooth brush and some water, maybe a little dish soap. If that fails just fucking wash them.

    Now your calling him an idiot :p
    It doesnt take a brain surgeon to know that if you wear a 30 for example in "normal jeans" you should get a 28 in raw

    huffer4
    dip a sponge in cold water and dab the stains its sugger based so it dissolves fairly easy


    Look dood there are many reasons why people might not want to go with raw; for instance they are not as soft as washed denim and they will bleed on white shoes. Some people are okay with that because they want the upside of raw--the fades. Some people are not.

    This is the sort of information that GQjean would have if he were to look at the old threads. He isn't willing to do that.

    So I will reiterate--raw may not be for him at this time or ever.

    thats the thing with these 'classical' phony rich guys who try to act like they are superior to the world because they know something about fashion

    they are passive aggressive douches.

    have any friends off this forum (not you pole but guy you quoted)?


    hey fuck you bitch I have wasted time trying to help you when you refuse to read and have ignored virtually all the advice people have given you in the last two hours. go fuck yourself.

    Don't go for APC's because they seem like the standard choice. As hard as it is, if you're able to afford two options, then you should throw out price as a factor to your decision making. In my opinion, you should go for the KMW's 1980 but try to buy them from an online shop with a good return policy, assuming you cannot physically try them both on.

    Now the truth comes out. Seriously, you didn't have to sugar coat your hostility with 'no insult intended'. ...what happened to your passive-aggressive talk?

    You are a lunatic. What the fuck are you talking about?

    I was trying to help you and you attacked me.

    I have you on ignore now, so rage on crazy bastard. Wave your freak flag high and proud.

    its just a pair of jeans. dont' sweat it, but don't be dense on purpose and then act like a victim. i was in the same boat and wanted to try out raw denim. so i found it on ebay at great prices. a pair of black apc NS with tags and another apc NS indigo. i didn't pay over $70 on each. now i know that the NS fit great. like a tapered 501 (or how levis would look on people in pictures from the 60's). i did the size down rules and regulations and wore them and am still wearing them. you can find what you're looking for... for cheaper than you think.. as long as your patient and persistent (search function on ebay and B&S right here). now... i know... because i tried. reading the forum helped out and yup i used the search function and it was quite fruitful.
    Now the truth comes out. Seriously, you didn't have to sugar coat your hostility with 'no insult intended'. Fuck you bitch doesn't sound like the fine eloquence of a refined gentleman...what happened to your passive-aggressive talk? You mad that you have no life and that you just realized you've wasted the past 2 hours of your life reading this thread that you have no significant part in? You mad brah?

    So how about non-raw stuff?

    Looking into getting a few pairs of denim, but I'm not really interested in raw. Mostly into darker washes with subtle distressing, but if something's neat enough I'll check out. Brands, cuts, washes, etc. to look for?

    I have another question, when you wash a pair of raw jeans do they lose more/less indigo compared to regular jeans from say levis?

    I wear a 29 in Skulls 5010 (next time I'll do 30) and I wear 32 in T-000. T-000 is skinny as fuck. And even at 32 it's skin tight on my thighs.

    It's slimmer I believe.

    Still, I'd recommend sizing down a size or two to account for the repulsive stretching.
