    I'm looking for some white jeans that fit similar to nudie thin finns or dior 19cms. Any recommendations? Can probably spend about $200.

    They totally should make a brand for like, people who don't like brands. Like an unbranded brand, man. That'd totally be awesome.

    Was going to say the same damn thing! EP Jeans by Epaulet look really nice. Patch would be covered by belt, otherwise no stitching and meets all your other criteria. You can also look in the 'Non-APC Sub-$2000 selvage denim Jeans' thread. Other than contrast stiching, APC meets all your points too. Edit: get a $1.50 stitch ripper - patch would be a snap to remove.

    just got a pair of Average Joe Nudies - Wet Coated........
    Noob question, as I am quite the Noob

    Will these shrink if soaked?.........or does the "wet" imply that they are sanforized?

    thanks in advance!


    any advice appreciated!

    thanks in advance

    Thanks for the tips guys!
    The UO jeans won't work for me because of the back patch.
    APCs won't work because of the contrast stitching. EPs might work.
    Has anyone removed a back patch?
    After removing the patch will there still be stitching holes where the patch used to be?

    Get a stitch ripper (aka 'seam ripper'). It's little plastic and metal thingy about three inches long, with a metal tip that looks like a harpoon. it's used by tailors to rip or cut stitching. It's always handy to have and it's about a buck. Looks like this:

    The patch is possibly one of the easiest things to remove, however, in some cases, the top waistband stitching is sometimes stitched through the patch. Check this, or remove the patch and then have a tailor re-stitch that portion of waist band.

    Better yet, take it to your tailor and have them do the whole job.

    There may be visible holes after, as there would be occasionally when you remove back-pocket stitching, so do any stitch removing before soaking/shrinking the jeans.

    Give us a review and/or fit pics when you get them. They're new and a lot of people are curious.

    Any "premium" denim makers with a cut like J.Crew's 484?
