I have never owned a pair of premium denim jeans, i dont really understand what that means or whats the difference between old navy's and nudies.

Well i have been looking alot for a good deal on jeans and i think i found a good one.

can someone please reply with what they think about them and which ones are the best looking?

Stay away from Paper. The brand's been bought out and heavily diluted, both before and after the takeover. Quality's generally pretty unimpressive, at this point.

Yeah, some of the PDCs I got in 2002-2003 are among my favorite jeans but the current offerings are unimpressive, go for ES instead if you want somehting with a similar look.

My first pair of PDCs were purchased from Marshalls for $22 in about 2003, so I figure the pair was made around 2002. They have held up great, and have probably been washed 20-25 times or so with only minimal fading. The model is ICN i believe, and the wash is 'Clone' which has a cool slight graycast effect to it.

if you like the wash, at that price it's still a pretty good buy. Haven't been too impressed with PDC jeans recently, however I would deal hunt to see if you can get deals on something else. Try da'mage jeans/earnest sewn, you can find these at times at nordstrom rack.

They're a good jean for the price, but the quality has gone down over the years. Try and hit up a Nordstrom's Rack, Neiman Marcus Last call or Saks Off 5th for deal on them and to look at some ES.

Do you think the ICN can still be worn without looking too dated? The bootcut is fairly pronounced.

Right - I haven't been wearing them as much lately, but broke them out the other day. They don't fit very slim on me - they are probably one size too large, but since they are looser, the bootcut doesn't look too bad.

I have a few pairs of bootcut PDCs that might get slimmed up w/ a sewing machine. However, I have muscular thighs and I think the bootcut sihlouette looks more balanced on me than straight or tapered leg denim.

My PDC jeans from the early days are still my favorites. And I couldn't care less what the current style is, bootcut jeans look 1000% better on me than skinny straight legs.
