    is there something that matches this description?

    naked and famous deep indigo colourway with the orange stitch
    apc new standard fit
    straight back pockets (unlike the NS slanted ones)

    tried the jean shop rockers but the hem and leg were too big

    I'm planning to buy a pair of classic, straight jeans, like Levi's 501, but the problem is I can't seem to find a pair that's cut to be worn ABOVE the waist, and not ON the waist as seems to be the most common these days. Anyone here know where to look?

    Why do people buy Nudies? The arcs are horrible and you are 100% guaranteed a disastrous crotch blowout if you get a raw pair and wear them to fade.

    Imperial King has 12" rise. most full repro models have 12 & up rises__ eg, Denime XX type, Fullcount, Evisu, WWII cuts, etc.

    They have a higher rate of blowouts than any comparably priced denims. That doesn't mean you'll get them, it just means a lot of people do. A friend of mine had his Nudie's blowout in 4 months.
