    my APC ns's. i feel like they look bad on me due to my super skinny legs. i'm working out my legs liek 4 times a week now with a trainer (along with the rest of my body obviously xD) so i figure my legs will thicken up a bit and it'll look better, but for now, do you guys think this fit looks ok? i just got the ns's 2 weeks ago.

    I like the fit on the first photo.

    As for bulking up on the legs - unless you are quite an exception, I'd expect that you would have difficulty w/ the calves. Butt and thighs are not too hard to build up, but calves are notorious for slow / low response. The obvious question is - do you think the NS would look better on you if your butt and thighs bulk up, and your calves stay more or less the same?

    Best of luck

    Hi all...I've got a quick question.

    I have a couple size 31 jeans in my closet and in the time that I bought them, I've lost quite a bit of weight...so much so that I'm a size 29 now.

    They don't fit quite as 'perfect' as they used to, and I always need a belt if I choose to wear them. The problem is that since the waistlines are so big, they start bunching up in the back area due to the constraints of the belt. I really hate how they do this, and I'm afraid that it will make me look sloppy. Should I stop wearing them?

    I just feel like the calves look too thin. I also like the fit in the first photo, I'll cuff the jeans and it'll look fine I guess.

    One day maybe my calves will come through for me, I'll keep working them out xD.

    I don't know if this was discussed before but how do you all store your jeans while they are in rotation?

    I'm talking about the ones you haven't washed yet, thus the ones accumulating dirt, grime, skin cells, ketchup, coke, and other assorted food stains engrained all for your patina towards your first wash.

    I would be afraid to fold them in the drawer or hang them in the closet cuz that dried on junk can attract silverfish, moths, etc to your jeans and adjacent clothing articles?

    When I wear my jeans in rotation I just hang them over a chair until next time I wear them but now I've gotten to the point of having so many jeans in rotation I don't find it practical anymore. I got to place them in temp storage somewhere till next time I wear them again.

    I think they're datasupa's. All I have are an APC and a couple of LVC 501s.

    For a 30 W, what LVC 1947 501 size should I try? Research indicates 31.

    Also,
    If this is true for kmw, what gives for pbj and somet using synthetic indigo for their made in japan denim? Or do they as well use natural.


    My previous question maybe you all overlooked up on top of the page.

    For those that know, what is the advantage of natural/genuine indigo as opposed to synthetic?

    I noticed that somet uses synthetic. That certainly should not put them on same level as the chinese made kmw


    Is it just fading properties are different?



    Thanks.

    My understanding is that natural indigo is harder to fade.

    Are you sure?
    I hear on these threads that eternals and flat head are easy to fade and they use natural indigo.

    And somet was noted by several here to be very difficult to fade. I believe somet uses synthetic

    You've got it backwards. Somet (and KMW) use natural indigo. Most other brands use synthetic, with a few exceptions (mostly in their upper end products). 5EP uses a blend.
