I know there is the lightweight japanese denim thread, but lets face it, 13.5oz japanese denim doesn't exactly qualify as light. Are there some good raw/1wash slim jeans that are in more appropriate summer weights such as 9-12.5 oz? I can't tell denim weight very well. For example what is the weight of dry nudies, apcs, and even then say, levis511(someone said you could find raw, but i doubt it). Do companies put out "summer/spring" jeans at all, or do you just have to find a lightweight brand? I'd love to wear dry jeans year round, but i have a feeling things like my PBJs are gonna get less use when it hits 90 in florida probably in a month(it's already 80). I'm looking into some khaki slim cargos from John Bull on Rakuten(i'll post a link when i get home in case people are interested), but would like to keep a pair of denim in the mix with khaki, and shorts. A denim weight index would be pretty cool but probably unnecessary. But, i'm already thinking about summer here in florida and i know cheap's in jacksonville and wears his canes/sammies all year, but sometimes i can do without leg sweat. I wish my basketball shorts were fashionable(selvage?) because lord are those the most comfy things ever. Do you guys switch to lighter denim, shorts and khakis, or just tough it out with your heavier jeans? Some of you bastards might have consistent 70s-low80s weather all year and i hate you for it. I feel like i'm drowning in the humidity by walking outside sometimes.
