    I want a pair of regular black dry jeans. I want something that fits similar to APC NS in a size 28, but with more interesting denim. Is there anything from Naked and Famous like that? Or Nudie? Wax coating is a plus, and I definitely want it under $200.

    Any thoughts on Rich & Skinny jeans?

    Also, is there a thread on here, or a link online that is a pictorial on premium jeans makers and what their labels/pockets look like in order to identify them? There have been jeans I've seen in public that I wonder what the maker is but have no idea where to find out, short of asking the person. Not gonna do that! lol

    Could anyone give an opinion on the sizing? This is my first STF-jean and I'm wondering what's good or bad about it. By the way, if you hadn't noticed, presoak.

    Relaxed straight, or he has chicken legs. And whatever you do, don't buy pre-distressed like those. It just looks cheesy.

    Thanks alot!

    3sixteen and Naked and Famous both have nice grey denimz that are in the mid 100s I think.

    hey.. i suggest to soak them first.. i'd say 2-3 times post the pics after to see how much they shrink.. you need about 3 inches i would say.. hopefully you can get a slimmer fit as well by then.. goodluck!

    Which size should I take in dior non-raw if I wear 31 skulls? I'd like the waist to be 32-33 and the thigh around 11-11.5. I'm not sure if I can get away with sz 30 because of the low thigh measurement :S

    these are too big size down! regular 501 shrink yes but they also stretch like a mother giving birth go down.... leave some room for inseam shrink but the rest will stretch a lot

    I'm in the market for a pair of nice raw denim. My price range is up to $200, but I can't seem to decide on what to buy! APC Petit Standards, Nudies (on sale), or... well I don't know.

    Also, is selvage worth paying more for?


    Help please?

    Help please?

    The reason you haven't gotten help is because you've given no specifics whatsoever. What kind of fit do you want? What kind of texture? Is hardware important to you? Heritage?

    And the decision regarding selvedge is up to you. The selvedge seam adds no specific advantage, though some would argue that selvedge denim is more likely to be higher quality than its non-selvedge counterpart. Like most products, however, the quality of different kinds of denim will vary depending on the manufacturer.

    You should do more research about what you're looking for, and post again when you've narrowed it down.

    Thinking those are gonna look really good once soaked. You'll loose 3" in the inseam, but not in the first two soaks. The waist will shrink fully with two soaks.

    What size did you get? How does the waist and top block fit when raw? Should be only slightly loose or fit close to TTS. I think Pheonix is right about the stretch.

    Soak and put up some post-soak pictures.

    Well, here they are after a 30 minute hot soak... I think you're right mlyngard, regarding the shrinkage on the waist and inseam. I didn't get all out in this first soak. But I'm quite happy with the fit, really comfy.

    Should get the last shrinkage out with a second hot soak, but I think it's fine right now, don't need to wear a belt to wear it.

    By the way, it's a size 32 x 36.
