    Hitting up context to get some Nudie Grim Tim's soon. Also planning on getting some Levi's 501's and Momotaro's in the near future.

    How do all of these fade? I thought Nudies were like noted for their fades, but suck because of crotch blowouts. That accurate?

    I don't know much about the 501's but they're cheaper and look good/quality, and would be good to have as jeans to get dirty in.

    What style Momotaro's should I check out?

    I'm kind of short (5'7) and have really stumpy legs hahaha. Check out this post for pics.

    Hey all:

    I currently have in my rotation: Nudie Slim Jim Indigo wash, Nudie Slim Jim Medium Wash, RRL Selvadge (Once washed).

    Instructions on the selvadge says "wash cold" but my Nudies both say "wash at hot (40 D celsius). Why the difference b/w the 2?

    I soaked my Flathead 310s in cold water and they shrunk as expected. I then soaked my Edwin raw slim buckle in cold water and they EXPANDED. Anyone know why?

    I have a pair of the Levi's 501 x J. Crew in the Indigo Ridge wash.
    It is pre-distressed: Slight fading around knee, and honeycombs.

    Only problem is MY KNEE ISN'T THAT LOW!

    Is there a chance I can shrink the inseam "up?"

    @IIIrd Icon- I looked into the PBJ xx-011's and saw some worn in pictures over at Sufu, and the grey weft has a very nice unique fade characteristic to it that I really liked. I ordered online from Blue in Green. Thanks for the recommendation, can't wait to see how they fit.

    How about some recommendations for American-made straight-leg loose-fitting jeans with a 12" Front-Rise & 19-20" Hem/Leg Opening? 34" Waist & 33-34" Inseam after shrinkage/stretch?

    Got some RRL Straight-Leg jeans on the way, but how about in the LVC line-up or others?

    Thanks people.

    I was shopping on portland today and i came across an interesting pair of selvedge jeans. Does anyone know anything about undefeated denim?
    I saw a pair of these at the Compound for $98 http://www.denimology.com/2010/08/un...edge_jeans.php

    An interesting thing i noticed about them was that they had a zipper fly instead of button fly, which i've never seen before.

    ^common misconception is that selvedge denim is better quality. selvedge [alone] does not constitute higher quality. on unknown brands [with no reps] where there isn't any kind of documentation to support performance, you need to bite the bullet & research/discover it yourself.

    @IIrd Icon- Yup, I sized down 1 and ordered a size 32. My true waist size is a 33. I didn't request for a hem though (which I am now regretting), as I wasn't sure if I wanted to wear stacked or clean/cuffed.

    I got some rigid 514's from levi in 29 waist, and I feel like they're a bit too roomy in that regard. I tried 28 on but they were too tight.

    Anyway, is there anyway I can shrink about half an inch out of the waist? The length is just about right as-is, but could probably stand some incremental shrinkage.

    Advice?
    Thanks.
