1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    I know they have a bad rap for being overpriced, having horrible washes and cuts, and just being a little too gaudy in general.

    However, I really like the looks of these. I LOVE the coloring, and the back pockets. The stitching, leather patch, buttons, snaps on the waist, and camo pocket are also pretty neat details, although probably not things 'normal' people are going to notice while you're wearing them.

    How 'bout some pics?

    I can't get over how much I love the rich fading and coloring. My concern, however, it the cut/fit. Most models on factorypeople (and most other sites) don't wear their jeans well, in my opinion. I like my NS, Sven, Mic, and Jim. In other words, fitted from the thighs up.

    I tried on a pair of the slim PRPS and thought the fit was perfectly fine. The wash was too extreme for me though (it wasn't this wash).

    What would you compare it to? How tight was the thigh? Did you size up or down? Details, man!

    Well, the website selling the ones pictured are in the state (damn sales tax!), but are about three hours away. I like them, but they are pretty damn expensive.

    Eventually I might try them, and return them if I don't like them. I'd only be out shipping I guess.

    That wash is seriously cool. I have a feeling it will get better with age.

    I'm not really a fan of the dirty look. I don't mind distressed, but I don't like big brown spots :p

    That's one of the coolest parts man! It blends so well with the different blues. You're just not as [​IMG] as Brian and I [​IMG] EDIT: Upon reading factorypeople's site further, they list the waist on the 32 model as 17.5". If that's accurate, their smallest size (30) will be WAY too huge on me.

    I find it hard to believe that a 32 would measure 35" :p

    And I'd hope you'd remember if you had to size down by three when you tried them on...

    Oh, finally a pair I can wear 30. They're about $100 something on ebay. How much are they for retail?

    $300 bucks for those.

    I thought Superfuture decided that all those PRPS on eBay were fake? Even if they're not, they're still a different cut.


    Well, I'd remember if they were 3 sizes too big. That's some APC stuff right there :p I'd say that I probably went for true size, heh.

    What Onistukas are those? I was not aware of the existence of the Italian flag colorway!

    Has anyone seen how bad the fake PRPS are? Has anyone here ordered a fake fake pair from eBay??
    I realize fakes are bad and everything, i'm just curious as to exactly how different they are from real ones....

    To me, it doesn't matter. Fake is fake. If the design is ripped off and done for cheaper with lower quality materials and the intent is there to deceive people into thinking it's real, it's abolutely revolting.

    I ordered them today. They should be here tomorrow (I'm in Dallas, shop is in Austin). Regardless of whether or not I keep them, I'll be sure to take pics for you kind folk.
