    I keep my cell phone in my front pocket...is there anyway to not have the indentation of it not wear into raw jeans and make me look like a douchebag?

    Put them in a different pocket every time you wear the jeans.

    Haha. I used to struggle with this too, but bit the bullet and bought a man bag (Rag & Bone tote). I took some flak from my friends, but is pretty damn useful, and keeps teh fadez nice and crisp.

    Put it in your back pocket when not sitting, put it elsewhere when you are.

    I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times, but here goes:

    I have large thighs (soccer player), and jeans typically are too tight in the thigh and then too wide at the bottom. What raw jean should I be looking at?

    oh, by the way: height - 5'11'' weight 170 pounds.

    even steven perhaps...

    also you don't want to completely look like this \\ / in your body shape line either on the lower half

    I was browsing the big name raw denim sites and did like the look of the even steven compared to the apc rescue.

    can you explain more in-depth how I don't get that V shaped look? I'm looking to completely re-do my wardrobe.

    So I got my new jeans today but the leg opening is a little to big. They are going past the back of my shoes and I'm stepping on them. Is there any easy way to make them smaller?

    I know some people have successfully converted Regular Ralfs to Slim Jims -- i.e. bootcut to straight leg. Then again, I've tried the same with some of my bootcut jeans, and they looked ridiculous, probably because the top block of the jeans were originally baggy/loose-fitting, and the altered bottom-half just made the jean's proportions look awkward.

    I'd give that alteration a shot if your bootcuts are relatively slim-fitting up top.

    Otherwise what is some good lightweight raw denim (besides the rogan selvage mentioned above).

    I have a pair of Edwin Sen's that are really light.

    what pair of good quality denim fit most similarly to Uniqlo T000's?

    I'm looking for something with a 7 inch leg opening, and I wear a size 31 in all of my jeans.

    I think he's suggesting you avoid jeans that taper too much on the bottom. Go for a straighter pair.

    Thing is, they aren't boot cut..or at least I don't thing they are. They're the average joes I got during the context sale.

    Cuff 'em, hem 'em, or taper 'em. Cuffing is the only option that is free.

    Two questions:

    Are the APC jeans lightweight? Otherwise what is some good lightweight raw denim (besides the rogan selvage mentioned above).

    And; what are some decent light-wash jeans? Something for summer


    my best lighter weight raw jeans are Lee Authentics

    Anyone know of anything that fits similar to apc ns ? I sized down 1 and like the looseish fit through the thigh and the way they naturally sit low on hips.
