    They're all pretty awful. Your best bet is just to slip into American Eagle and ask the dude with the phones on his head for some help. I'm sure he'll set you straight.

    As an alternative to the cold soak, you can always run your jeans through a hot cycle heavy wash with a lot of detergents. Results will be about the same, but you won't have as much fun.

    im pretty sure this has been answered many times over:


    after wearing raw denim and it is time for its first wash/soak/whatever,

    what do i do? normal hand wash with soap then flat dry? what is a 'soak' consist of? thanks.


    also, how would you rank the quality of KMW, APC, iron heart, sugarcane, and nudie? what would be the order ? thanks


    When I soaked my Flat Head's I just ran a tub of really hot water and put them in there for about 4 hours. I took them out and just let them air dry. They were still a bit too loose for me so I just did the same thing again.

    I was soaking just for shrinkage though.

    I soak mostly to preserve the color and prevent shrinkage.

    well, these are the brands i am most curious about in terms of quality and exclusivity:
    kmw, iron heart, samurai, 5ep, 45rpm, sugarcane, nudie


    nudie is by far the worst quality of the batch... the rest are quite good qualitywise

    Who here buys/wears hats? I'm thinking of getting some kind of Stetson, the less Western and more Safari looking ones.

    The only stuff I've ever looked at on Zappo's are the shoes so I'm not sure. I really doubt they have any jeans that are liked by people here though.

    This is probably way obvious, but how do you fellas link up sale items so that the title of the original sales post (not it's url) becomes the actual link?

    j mentioned something in the BS forum about adding a link to your signature, but I'm missing something here. Thanks!

    Thanks Homme. Hmm - replacing [ for ( doesn't seem to help. I still come up with an URL (http:// ect) instead of an underlined/linked title of post. Don't know code, so sorry for the lack of proper terminology.

    Hello everyone, I'm brand new here. I've read some of the posts here every now and then the last few months and here's my first question. (I actually registered so I can ask this but plan to start participating in the forums in general.)

    I'm looking for opinions on the best plain white tee shirt to wear with jeans when going out. Maybe it's my inner-James Dean but I love this look in the summer. Most white tee's I get are definitely undershirts. My favorites are Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. However, these are too thin to go out in. I have a couple Hanes Beefy-T's but they have a big squarish cut, and I'm definitely more lean-athletic. I've heard that cashmere T's are the best, but I haven't seen any selling and the ones I have seen are $500+. ($500 for a plain white tee? Not in this lifetime for me.) Any constructive feedback would be appreciated. I hope this is not a repeat thread, thanks.
