    1947 501s are made by LVC which is a different branch of levis. Different denim and different fit based on how the 501s were made in 1947 so many of the details are accurate to those jeans including the leather patch details, hidden rivets, etc.

    Hi.

    Looking to buy a first pair of raw indigo selvedge.

    I just tried on a new pair of APC New Standards in 34. I liked the fit and look, though they were skintight in the thigh. I hear they stretch, but i wouldn't mind something a hair bigger to start with. My other gripe is that I sort of expected the denim to feel a bit more substantial.

    Any suggestions on a heavier denim? maybe a bigger thigh? links to stores appreciated.

    Grey selvedge that fits like APC PS - does it exist?

    And I know that APC actually has a grey PS, but I'm looking for something darker and that will fade.

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a fairly plain light blue pair of jeans which are slim/tapered.

    I've just sold a pair of RRL Low Straights that were just not slim enough below the knee, and now I'm looking for something cheap but durable, under 100€.

    Levi's 511 was my first option but I've been disappointed with Levi's quality lately.

    I know Diesel don't have good rep over here but they are usually better than Levi's in terms of construction quality, and they have fairly plain washes and not too flashy back pockets like this pair (around 70€ in Yoox):

    Nudie jeans are more or less on the same boat as Diesel but I don't find them horrid:

    I thought of APC but is it me or the fit of these New Petit Standards looks pretty bad and not slim at all?

    Any other alternatives?

    Thanks in advance.

    PC PS are slim, that’s just a bad fit picture. I guess you are actually looking for a pair of skinny jeans. Have a look at the Naked&Famous SkinnyGuy and SuperSkinnyGuy models. They don’t come in diffferent "washes" or with fake fades though, like the jeans on your photos. In the sale you might get a pair for under 100 Euro.

    petit new standard are actually slimmer than the ps from what I've read of other people's experiences

    if you can return them then it might be worth trying out

    Looking for slim fitting jeans (especially from the knee down) that work for someone who has a decent sized trunk. I don't want the jeans to hug my ass.

    I have a similar question except I don't want anything too slim. Are there any decent denim options out there that would match these measurements?

    Waist: 34"
    Thigh: 12.75"-13"
    Leg opening: 8.25"-8.5"

    Usually when a pair of jeans has a 34" waist (typically a size 33 or 32 or even smaller depending on the brand), the corresponding thigh measurement is between 11.5"-12", or maybe 12.25" at the most. I can't seem to find anything bigger in the thigh. Are there any brands out that match what I'm looking for?
