    i fucking suck at stacking. i'm working with skulls here and i see all these pics of squishy pancake stacks but mine just flop around and billow in places. wtf am i doing wrong?
    Wear them for a week and the stacks will settle in. They're going to look goofy until then so don't worry much about it. Just wear them.
    it's a fucking Q
    and it's fucking tacky

    stylesmurf you should throw out those jeans you love a lot because there is a Q on the back pocket, from now on dress only in black and avoid any semblance of visual interest whatsoever

    alternatively if they are size 28 just give them to me

    Alternatively, invest in a seam ripper and spend some time ripping that and the metal patch off.

    I don't get it.
    I know we should try to enourage people to try new stuff, but why do a 180 and approve of something that is, in all it's glory, tacky?

    He did ask after all, didn't he?

    And he asked us.

    Tacky. Euro-trashy or 'urban.'

    Actually the metal tag is mounted (WITH cool flathead SCREWS!!!) onto the leather patch. So very easy to remove. First time I've seen anything like it. The Q would be more of a pita to remove. I will ponder more upon it. Thanks for all the opinions (esp Uncontrol), really appreciate it. And sorry they are a size 32 lol [​IMG]

    I'm looking for a slim straight pair of jeans. I would like the hem to be around 8.5". I want them to fit comfortably around a boot for winter, but also not be too wide that I can't also wear with sneakers.

    I'm also looking for a boot that would look good with an 8.5" hem lol. Gentleman Travelers?

    edit: I'm trying to keep the jeans around $150, and the boots around $200 (maybe a little more). Katahdin's seem like a maybe, I just don't like the cap toe.

    edit #2: Would anyone recommend the Slim Guy Super Heavy Selvedge? 21 oz might be too much? I don't know, but my ass sweats a lot even in 12oz...

    ^^^ What waist size are you? 8.5 could be really baggy depending on the waist size.

    32-33. My Crate James are tapered to 8.5 and I think it looks pretty good. Those Epaulet boots look great actually. They look a little bulky, but I really like those.

    With new pairs of jeans, is it better to wash first and get the shrinkage out of the way, then wear them to stretch...or wear them as long as you can before washing, in regards to getting them comfortable as soon as possible?

    I'm planning on purchasing my first pair of APC New Standards tomorrow and was curious as to what size to get. I've heard that normally you take your true waist size and size down 2-3 times. Does that mean if my true waist is 32 inches I should buy size 29-30 or should I size down two actual waist sizes to 27-28?

    Alright, so i bought new pair of jeans... I know starch can keep it stiff... but is there anyway to keep/restore the dark color that new crisp jeans usually have?
