    What are some good 1947 brands, in terms of quality? I just bought a pair of Levis 1947, and they fit me well, but want to get 1 or 2 more, but not the same brand. Thx!

    Check out Sugarcane

    zissou, the KMWs would be my pick of those, the colour just seems to really pop. And I've loved my recent pickups from them. But I'm not sure it would suit your style with the MF stuff, it seems a little bit too electric, if that makes sense.

    I think the RBJs are cool, Kiya showed me a pair with some wear and they looked like they'd deliver a great look over time.

    I like the Fullcounts, but then again, I think thats my personal prefrence coming through.

    The Bucklebacks really look like they fit that MF aesthetic, but I'm not familar with them at all.

    Have you considered Samurai? They have a great slubby, hairy feel. And I think you could work them well.

    In summary, from your fit pics that I've seen, I think either the RBJs or the Bucklebacks would be the ticket. I'd lean towards the RBJs.

    Hey guys, I asked this question on the APC thread but couldn't get a definitive answer.

    I'm looking to buy a pair of APC NS but I don't know how much to downsize. I have a par of Levi's 511's in a size 32, and that's the kind of fit I'm looking for, skinny but not skin tight.

    Should I downsize to a 30 or a 29? Thanks in advance fellas.

    Zissou, go with the RBJ's not a whole lot of people have them, but they look like they are great denim. They are going to be my next pair,after i wear through my PBJ's and Diors.

    I have a pair of NS that are too tight in the crotch (crotch rise is an inch or two too high) I sized down 2

    Am I better off with 1950's rather then the 1980's?

    Have you guys ever heard this before? I was asking for the waist size of a pair of jeans and was told they were 34. The tag size was 36! Does it make sense?
    I thought it is usually the other way around. Would it stretch that much (besides APC)?

    Yes, it does make sense. Depending on the brand and the designer's intention of fit, most jeans aren't true to size. For low rise jeans, for example, you wouldn't be able to button/zip your jeans all the way if the brand kept the jeans sized as tagged.

    But this is tag size 36 with waist 34. If the tag size is 34 and waist size is 36, it makes sense. Am I missing something?

    Let me say this again in case you missed it the first time: "Depending on the brand and the designer's intention of fit, most jeans aren't true to size." That statement is true for being oversized and undersized. Or could they just be mistagged? C'mon, there are plenty of explanations.
