    Where can I find a tailor in Los Angeles that can correctly do an original hem? or chain-stitch

    does anyone endorse jeans similar to Prps or RRL, in terms of pre-distressed denim? i know it's looked heavily down upon here after reading multiple pages but just wanted some opinions/recommendations on brands that have decent "washes" that's not a COH/7forall/Joes etc brand.

    any help (if any) would be appreciated.

    Agreed, those are much too wide for skinny guys. You should size down at least one...

    I have some raw denim and I like the idea of wearing in on my own jeans. But it seems like a lot of the people who get good, quick fades have physical jobs or hobbies that allow them to wear out their jeans quickly.

    Many of us have jobs where we cannot wear jeans every day for six months Since I can really only use my jeans on the weekends it will take like five years before my jeans are worn like some the pics posted on this site. Since I don't really want to wait that long I am also considering getting some worn/distressed jeans. Unfortunately most of the washes I see out there are over the top and look fake.

    I think that getting something that has subtle fades is the way to go. That way the jeans are partially faded for you and you can break them in some more on your own. It's also a good thing to not be wearing the same very common brands everyone else is wearing. As far as recommendations go, I like some of the washes I've seen from Acne.

    First soak in pee overnight (the amonia really helps bring out contrast in fades), then use a spray bottle to mist some soap water on it, and then wear them until they dry

    KMW makes awesome washes in the 1950 and 1980 cuts. See Blue Owl's link above. They're an affiliate.

    There's a thread dedicated to jeans that are non-apc sub-200$. Do a quick search; lots of ideas there.
