    RRL slim fit raw. Tried the 32" ridiculously tight (APC tight), but the store chickette insisted that they'll easily stretch out. 33" was loose and I didn't like the look. How much do these stretch?

    ^ yes, they stretch out quite a bit__ you'll be ok__ just don't hot soak them for now cuz you're gonna have a hard time stretching them back out.

    I normally size down one in RRL; you'd probably want to do the same.

    What are your thoughts on Rugby jeans? I saw faded red and brown pairs in the store the other day but didn't have time to try them on. The colors seemed interesting, and fairly rare, particularly the red. They were around $100, not on sale.

    I should note that I'm not looking for really skinny jeans

    For $100 you could probably do much, much better.

    Is it a bad idea to go 9 months no-wash with my KMW's. Sunday will be 6 months, and while they smell (kind of ) my fiance will still make out with me, and neither one of us feel they 'stink'... I just don't want to wash them at 9 months and have a crotch blow-out and not be able to wear my favorite pair of jeans while I wait for them to get repaired (if the caused damage is even repairable).

    Why, do they look like they're on their way to a crotch blowout? Nine months isn't unreasonable. I mean, heck, some people don't do it for a year or longer...

    This was asked before... based on the fact that no retailers describe the black NS as being made of selvedge denim whereas they do with indigo NS, I said no, they aren't selvedge, but some people disagreed. Nobody posted definitive proof either way, though.

    My Nudie RRDS have stretched out and I evidently got a size too large. What should I do now? They've never been washed and have no fading yet. Should I get them altered, try and sell/trade them, or wash them and see what happens?

    they list it as selvedge. i know there are some selvege jeans that just do not have the typical strip on the inseam so i was wondering if the apcs were one of them. but some sites do not say whether they are or not...

    I got a size too LARGE. Sorry, I just edited it. They've stretched out and they're too big now.
