    I also messaged kiya from selfedge and he said that i could stretch it buy putting it in water and then stuffing it with books, is that what you mean by distortion?

    Well, if you love the fit everywhere else, then with wetting and extreme stretching, you might be able to make the jeans button up. But you'll likely end up with the fly permanently pulling apart awkwardly, exposing the donut buttons and what-not. Not a good look in my opinion, but sizing-down enthusiasts at SuFu seem to embrace it.

    How about washing for a new jean? I've heard advice from wash right after you get it to wash after like 6months. When should one wash a new pair of iron heart 634s jeans?

    wash it whenever you feel the need to. for better looking fades, try to not wash for as long as possible.

    Okay denim guys, looking for a recommendation.

    I currently own KMW 1950s (sz 34) and they fit great. I like the roomy thigh and waist size is almost perfect after stretching. The only things I do not like about the cut of the 1950 is the ass is a little baggy and it is not quite a tapered in the leg opening as I would like.

    Ideally, i'm looking for a jean that retains relatively large thighs but tapers to a leg opening of approximately 9 inches.

    Any suggestions?

    What is the thigh fit of the s002 straight fit jeans from uniqlo like? I don't like the fake whiskers on the slim s001 nor the spandex. I had a pair of Kill City Wires which had some spandex and found they where painted on in the thighs. For reference, I am size 30 with 21~ thighs and generally like the fit of the Uniqlo slim Japanese selvedge jeans which are 100% cotton.

    Thankyou, Daniel.

    Looking for a Subsitute to Dior Homme 17.5CM's I have em in grey but want something that fits the same that comes in other colors like black since finding Dior 17.5's is near impossible for a reasonable price in my size.

    A drop of toothpaste + saliva (brushing my teeth) fell on my raw denim, I tried taking it off with a very damp cloth...and now the stain is faded. -_-

    Hopefully with a wash, it will blend in with the rest of denim.
