    miran PMs are hilarious and offer plenty of entertainment. I don't care if STANLEY VAN BUREN you all chased him with torches and pitchforks until the mods had him banned, as long as he can still send me messages it's ok :rotflmao:

    They're all hit or miss but acne and RRL are good places to start. Vis of course. Some LVC and Edwin.

    There's lots out there.

    All decent/good recs. Gilded Age is a brand that you tend to find discounted a lot but do good washes with good jeans, too.

    Visvim, Omnigod, Edwin comes to mind. I would wait for Jay to bring some Japanese denim goodness but with the crazy JPY at the moment he is concentrating more on the safer options (Raw denimz)

    I bought a pair of washed Edwins from Mr Porter a couple days ago.. they should be in on Thursday for me to try out along with a pair of Polarized wayfarers to wear when it's sunny outside and I'm not fully recovered from my rhinoplasty.

    White jeans are tough. Grey is a lot easier, even a pretty light grey. If you are not skeletal, you can easily come off looking like a whale. Plus, unless you just stand still all day, or never sit down, they will get super dirty in about 3 seconds.

    Don't be surprised. Europe is full of shitty jeans. Italy has 2.3x the number of shitty jeans that the USA has, and about 4.3x that of the Nordic countries.

    If you want good jeans that are made by people really dedicated to their denim, but are not in the repro category, I would say that you can't do much better than Kohzo.

    Have to second the white jeans opinion. I'm pretty skinny and they look decent, but you have to expect the stains/smudges to accumulate throughout the day. Not that they bother me. If you have any excess weight at all, they look pretty bad. And there are a lot of other things they can look bad with
