    The photos hint at tightness in the thighs. If he has big thighs he might want a more relaxed cut.

    Question on repro cuts (and some background). My first raw denim was 5EP's LDB, and I'd like something straighter for my next cut while sticking to similar quality. What jeans should I be looking at?

    I'd recommend the PBJs, from all I've seen and experienced (I have a pair of xx-005s) they're about as nice a slim fit as you'll find. The denim is just gorgeous.
    Thanks for the advice. I think I will go with the PBJ-005s. These pics sold me: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...postcount=4024 I can't find many nice fades/pictures of the straight leg ironhearts to sway my opinion. Right now its PBJ005 vs. Ironheart Straight leg. I can only afford one pair atm.

    Okay let me rephrase my question: what's the best way to get repro jeans without breaking the bank? I'm aiming to pay no more than $150 for denim...does this mean B&S only or are there lower-end brands with some repro qualities? Is the answer here "Crate?"

    If you're still considering the IH, then consider this one over the 634: http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.p...roducts_id=408

    Seems to be more of the fit you're looking for. And IH's do fade.

    These are my black overdyes after a few months of wear:

    The selfedge pictures seem to do the fit no justice. Thats why I was kind of off the IH slim denim. I couldn't find many appealing fit pics for them. =[

    What am I doing in hot and rainy Monrovia, Liberia
    Where I can buy some CONS jeans, either via mail-order of from a brick-and-mortar store?

    I understand they are mostly made in Turkey. Many thanks!

    I joined the Army back in January, and Ive recently been able to start wearing jeans again. Here is the problem though, none of my jeans fit me anymore. Through working out a lot and such, my legs got more muscular. I need help finding a pair of jeans that will work for me now.

    I had a pair of 30/34 RRL slim straights, which are now skin tight all the way down, but not uncomfortable.

    A pair of of 31/34 Nudie Even Stevens, which fit ok but not great, the top of the legs are now too tight.

    A pair of RB15s 30/34 which are fine in the lower leg, but the thighs are a little too slim for my tastes now.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm probably going to get PBJ 005s (I'm a denim newbie, I want see some nice fades and a really nice fit which everyone says the PBJs have).

    Shall I get one-wash or completley raw shrink to fit denim? Are there any advantages to getting shrink to fit? Do I size up or down on PBJ-005s? Thanks.

    A noob question / questions on stacking here.

    I have read stacking works on jeans with a tapered leg opening.
    For straight legged jeans, does it make sense to stack? Or simply, can it be done? Also, does it depends on the type of denim (regular vs. raw)? Assuming you can stack on straight leg, how can you keep it from unraveling?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Regardless of the type of denim, stacking with straight leg jeans looks very messy which is why you typically see stacking with narrow hems and cuffing with wider hems. Simply put, a wider hem means that the stacking will be less uniform with the majority of the weight being pushed to the bottom and falling off the back of your shoe.

    Somehow my bloody Nudie Grim Tims do the latter with a 7.5 inch leg opening. Perhaps they'll settle. Or perhaps I should stop wearing Chucks with absolutely no heel padding left.

    like whodini said, to get proper looking stacks you do need to have a slim leg/leg opening. otherwise it folds all nasty and bulbous. no bueno

    Pulled a thread loose when it got snagged on a jagged part of my desk, should I just cut it off or try to fix this? And if the latter, then how would I go about doing this?
