    Looking at the pics from Crew's site, its definitely not identical. My sis who got me the gift was kind enough to email me a copy of the receipt. It is from J.Crew, item # 13639. i'm not an expert either in LVC that's why im asking for some 411. the 200% mark-up was more of a comment made by a Levis associate at a store where i brought my jeans at for them to have a look at it. No success either with regard to info....Anyways, so this are actually LVC's and the price should be justifiable? J.Crew is known for marking up their prices with collaboration with different brands....just saying...

    If you're really that hard pressed to figure out what kind of LVCs you have from J.Crew even after they could tell you the model by giving them the item number on the receipt, I suggest you follow the path I laid out for Rhodes above.

    But for the last time, they are a pair of LVCs that have been washed for J. Crew.

    Snap, on before Kit. Warehouse if fantastic. PBJ, Skull, Momotaro, Flat Head, Dry Bones (SuFu Specials) in my direct experience. My Sams and Evisus seem slow, surprisingly. Moderate faders: Jean Shop, Somet, APC. Slow: KMW "Best" is way too subjective to answer, and could be argued 'til we're all blue in the fucking face.

    No. It's good for it, and you really need to soak all dry jeans prior to wear to take care of the shrink too, as well as to get out the excess starch which is bad for the jeans.

    Tell your friends. Please. And don't follow APC's silly washing instruction on that tag, especially anything involving oceans and rubbing with sand. Jesus.

    No hate but your legs look straight up twig-like. Straight and narrow

    just not the greatest angles... my legs are fit lol def not a twig

    That's a really nice fit on you, Connor. What's the leg opening on those? 7.25-7"? What cut of Imperials are those?

    We'd love to see those Crates too...must be a different fit for them...


    SE says 7.1 leg opening, these are the SEXI04s. so it's a 19cm based cut

    here's a fit pic of my CvsFs... this is the one that made everyone in the WAYWT punch me in the face

    AW and DH are in a whole 'nother ballpark in terms of pricing, there's a lot more options between those choices, why cut them out?

    Does ACNE's denim normally fade fast? I bought a pair of ACNE and, after having worn them for no more than 3 weeks, I already got some clear fades (shown in the pix below). I didn't get fades like these with APCs even after wearing them for more than 1 month.
