    Another 'where can I get it' question:

    For those of you in the Bay Area, where should I check for Paper Denim & Cloth's jeans, LTD cut, on sale? I just bought my first pair and they fit great. How about in LA?

    Also, suggestions on good quality jeans with a similar fit would be welcome. Basically I need a boot cut jean with a relaxed fit or very relaxed fit and not too low of a rise (I'm not Brazilian.)

    Wow, even A.Harris is into Paper Denim now. I must be doing something right (BTW - saw your Vass's at Louis Boston - amazing, though I can't justify 2 months rent on a pair of shoes). Louis Boston had all their remaining Paper Denims on sale (50% off) Call them. Very limited selection, but worth looking for. If you are thinkining of buying more than one pair, a membership in trenddepot.com might be worth it as well. Scoopnyc.com may have them on sale (though not a great sale) soon as well. Do not pay the jacked up "sale" prices fro goclothing.com. Also, intermiittently at Filene's basement for $70 (best value I've found there was $50 for the military LIT-light style - love those jeans). If you PM me your size and phone number (I go about once a week) if I see something you might like, I could see if you are interested and pick it up for you.

    I think I may have asked this before, but can anyone tell me if men's PDCs even exist in a 28 waist and a 31/32 length?

    Really long leg lengths mean that, after alteration, the baked-in back-of-the-knee creases can end up around my calves...

    They are all over the place at retail. At discount, both much harder to find. Try Loehmann's on la Cienaga, near the Beverly Center.

    Nick M,

    I've never seen any PDC with 31/32 length. But they tend to shrink an inch or so after being washed and dried so it doesn't look so weird (at least that's what I think) on a person who wears 31/32 inseam.

    I own three pairs of PDC jeans: LTD, ICN, and GTO models. This shrinking has only happened to LTD and ICN jeans and was not very noticeable on GTO jeans. I don't know if it has anything to do with their cuts, LTD and ICN being full-cut and GTO a regular bootcut.

    In San Francisco a store called Rolo sells them. They are on Market, and also there are two on Howard St.

    I was just at Nordstrom Rack today by South Coast Plaza. They had several seven for all mankind and a few Paper Denim and a whole rack for diesel. All for about 60$ each. I dident buy anything though. I dont really like diesel and none of the sevens or PDCs fit. But i figure its only a matter of time before i find some. I only live 10 mins away [​IMG] Anyway, Nordstrum Rack is at the top of my list for jeans.

    I can try. I wont be able to go back there until monday though.

    They only had one pair of 31s. There was no inseam marked, so i tried them on and think they were 32 inches long and I wear a 34 inseam so i passed. Also, i think this pair was marked at 70$ not 60$.

    Anyway i have no clue how to ship clothes or use paypal, if you wana teach me though, when i find some 31s ill send em.
    btw they had a ton of 29s
