    Wow, he thinks the APC NS rise is too low????? [​IMG]
    Yeah... he's a weirdo. He bought size 27s, and even those have like a 10" rise, right? The first jeans that popped in my head were Imperial Dukes, though. I dunno where to find regular Standards.

    So a friend of mine is looking for some new jeans and has some particular ideas about what he wants, so I figured I would ask you learned fellows.

    He's looking for ethically manufactured jeans (that part is kind of key) that are going to last him a while. He likes darker denim, and therefore something that's going to stay dark. He likes a straight cut, and lastly, price is something of an issue. For example, he rather liked some Dry Bones stuff, but isn't willing to spend $260 on a pair of pants.

    I apologize if that's too many things and he (and I) very much appreciate any member willing to put their denim knowledge to the issue here.

    Good Society (although on the same lines, Slings & Stones would be ideal).

    I'm going to have to second Whodini. I was really impressed with Good Society when I tried them on at Denim Bar. Inexpensive, Selvage, Organic Cotton and, I believe, made in Japan. Also I think they donate a portion of every sale to charity, hence the "Good Society" name. My bank accounts a little light right now, but as soon as it picks up I'm going to cop a pair from Mauro.

    Also I like my Nudie Organic Slim Jim's and I believe Nudie donates a small portion of each sale to Amnesty International. Nudie also has the highest possible standards for factories and workers.

    I am thinking about taking the plunge and buy a pair of Dior Homme 21cm MIJ Indigos and I was wondering how to size them. I wear a 34 usually (kinda baggy) and a 32 in APC NS, should I be sizing up or down for Dior?

    I personally want a slight baggy fit when I go ahead and buy my diors so I'll be getting a 28 (true to my waist size.) I've seen good results with sizing down one, but not so much with 2.

    I've got a pair of Acne Ravens. They are too tight for comfort, but they zip up all the way. I'm wondering if I can expect them to stretch at all, or whether I should just go ahead and sell them.

    Thanks.

    Does anyone ever only soak the legs of the jeans? (to preserve the thighs)

    Question was at the end of the page so it is likely everyone missed it

    Doesn't sound very practical.... what happens when they need a wash?

    Hey buttonman, button it up. This thread is intended for noobish questions.

    Knee bulge is when the knee area (usually on skinny jeans) stretches out when you bend your leg, and annoyingly stays poofed out when you straighten out again. Note: there is nothing you can do about it.
