    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

    I want to buy some 19cm ice water from LVR, they have 30 and 32, I'm wondering if they are sized like the raws (waist 2" vanity sized) and if they will stretch a lot like the raw version.

    Hey,

    Kinda new here but need some advice.

    I bought these jeans a few weeks back and they fit really well around the waist and upper legs but I can't help but feel that length wise they are just too long and even a bit baggy around the ankle area.

    I'm definitely thinking of getting them tailored (I assume you can get jeans tailored?), but just want a second opinion on this. Pics are available through the link below:

    Also, excuse the pink slippers on the floor (not my room), the sneakers I'm wearing (going shopping for some casual shoes today) and the bad quality of the photos.

    i dont know if theyre vanity sized but washed jeans will not stretch to the degree of raw ones

    I agree, I think they are too wide below the knee and little too long. You can get them tapered from the knee down if you want to, but it would help to know exactly what you want or have another pair of jeans that you like the leg fit to show as an example. Might be better off just getting jeans that you like the fit on.

    I kind of want the blue Goldminds but I don't think I can pull off gold-coated, bright blue denim

    Update: I just went and bought some casual shoes and along the way saw a tailor - tomorrow I'm taking the jeans in, I'm having them shortened by about 4cm and I will probably ask to have them slightly tapered below the knee.

    Given the cost of the jeans and the cost of tailoring, I'm definitely choosing to have them tailored.

    ... but, not by much [​IMG].

    actually, if you put it in this context: a good, well-made raw denim jeans are expensive :: it takes at least a year to properly break in a good pair__ in normal wear conditions [not a crank-induced 3-6 mos bang-up job] :: @ a pace of a pair a year, you have 3 awesome pairs of jeans in just 4 years.

    'dont' really think that's expensive if you're investing time in them and planning on using them past 5 yrs down the road... vs more than 2 dozens of assorted heap of hype [Diesel, Replay, GStar, Nudies, A/X, D&G, TR, CH, R&R, Joe's, etc ... never had 7s [​IMG]] that either, wear out in such a fast pace or get out-dated. mine got ebayed, given away, or currently gathering dust in storage.

    as far as im concerned nudie denim is shit. APC isnt anything special but ive seen a million good looking pairs of APCs and like 3 pairs of nudies i was impressed with. i wish i would have just saved and got something better. or a pair of APCs instead.

    i'm looking for some grey denim. i dont like that warp grey weft white look. i've been looking for something that's more grey through and through. no distressing. anybody have any ideas?

    Nom de Guerre made a nice slim fitting grey denim a couple seasons ago, might have to check the B&S forum and be lucky. i would've bought a pair but they have exposed back pocket rivets. not a fan of that [​IMG]

    after 7 months wear of my pbjs, i just washed my jeans insideout on a delicate woolwash using woolitedark, and nothing seems to have hapepned to them. some dirt is still even there LOL. hmmm any suggestions? they're still wet atm!!

    i highlighted your problem

    Nothing, still wearing them... But I had enough of the really slim cut so I decided to add a pair to the rotation. Something not so slim, hence the LVC's.

    Anyway, if you're pointing at the contest, I should post some pics indeed. But not now.
