1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I need a new pair of (very) dark jeans, on the slim side but not tight, and not bootcut.
    I have a couple pair of nudies, and APCs, what do you recommend?

    I don't know if I'd go KMW if you want a really dark indigo. I think the natural indigo is a bit lighter than a lot of the synthetics out there.

    How often would you guys recommend soaking jeans? They're starting to smell and they've stretched a lot but its only been a little under a month (I've worn them every day for the past month, even slept in them for about a week).

    Also, should I add detergents? And should I sit in my jeans while they soak or should I just leave them in there and for how long?

    Sorry for the questions, still don't understand everything yet.

    grey one in pasadena used to carry them, barneys at the grove or south willard might have them as well.

    Thanks drizzt. I'll give Grey One a call. I just ripped my jeans so I need some today.

    Edit: I should size down 2 sizes correct? So get a 32 if I'm a 34?

    Anyone know what the final word on thigh stretch is for Nudie and APC models? If a jean is significantly tight in the thigh but alright in the waist, will the thigh give enough to make a significant change or will the change be so minimal that it wouldn't make much of a difference?

    Generally the thigh will stretch out a decent amount. Some nudie models stretch a whole lot, especially the ecru embo fabric.

    Thanks for the reply. Grey one doesn't have them. Where can I get them online besides denimbar? Sorry for all the questions but I'm new to these kind of jeans.

    tobi.com has them, but you have to call them. I'm pretty sure you can get them at Barneys, but the price might be more than at other retail stores. South Willard has them in store for $155, I believe.
