    Sugar Cane? This is perhaps a question you have gotten before but is there a place to find Sugar Canes, in store, somewhere on the east coast? I live in Richmond VA and am wondering if there is a place somewhere between here and NYC. Any info?

    EDIT: Deleted, replaced with a question.

    I've got to hem my jeans now, but they're 5EP LDB. Do I need to do anything special to accomodate?

    Thinking of buying my first nudie jean, the only one i really want is the Slim Jim Dry Black Coated. I've read most nudies are size down one (or up one from apc NS) does that run true for coated SJ's as well? Also, are the SJ non selvage?
    Fit like this would be preferred.

    It depends on your body and what look you are looking for. I size down 2 for APC (31 to 29) but stick with my normal size for Nudies. The 31 Nudie SJ Dry Black Coated look much slimmer on me than the 29 APC NS. If I sized down at all they would look like shiny tights.

    The SJ Dry Black Coated are not selvage.

    Anyone know where to get Rag & Bone RB6? I've check all the affiliates and stores in the online store thread, but no one stocks it.
    That's a tough question. R&B has had some changeups with their jeans offerings the last year or two. I was at Barney's Co-op a few weeks back and I saw a model or two; back in August I was at the Barney's in LA and saw about 6 different pairs. That said, I think your best luck for R&B will always be a brick & mortar store. Hopefully you live near a big city.

    * When washed, the denim will always shrink between 1.5" to 3" in length (inseam) and between 1" and 2.5" in waist size. Please keep this in mind when choosing your denim

    It says this on the self-edge website..

    I was under the impression raw denim jeans stretched? As in size down from my normal size when buying nudies and they will stretch out? If it shrinks when I was it wont this mean its unwearable etc?

    clueless...

    It does both.

    Wear stretches the waist and thighs.
    Washing shrinks the waist and inseam.

    alright
    that makes more sense upon reflection
    so reading the self edge website more clearly
    nudies waist will expand approx 1.75 inches
    and then upon washing shrink .5 or something
    that works well then, I get the size down one... this is for grim tims by the way
    Anyone have any fit pics with details of grim tims
