I have read, and read, and re-read a plethora of raw denim threads. I would like some suggestions on my first pair as well as a quick crash course on "sizing" and "soaking." I know some will post and say "use the search function." I have. I'm 5'10, very muscular upper body, with a slim waist. I'm not looking for the skinny fit jeans..just not my style. Any good recomendations. Also, I'm in and out of Philly several times a week, and can stop by some botiques. Thanks in advance. Id like to keep cost under $150.

Have you read this: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=55144 ? I will give you a MILLION f2b dollars if you can prove to me that no one has ever asked a question on when to soak and which pairs need to be soaked, how to size down to account for stretching after a few wears, or a good recommendation on a pair of slim jeans. Google search is better than the forum's search, fyi.

PC new standards. They have a slight taper, but aren't skinny. They are the best bang for your buck. Only good raw jeans you will get for under 150.

Size down 2 from your typical size. Let them stretch a bit. Wash when you can't stand not washing. wear them a lot.

The end.

You can get Sugar Cane 1947s on ebay from Japan for $150.

if you read this board, you will note codes for affiliate shops that drop that price below 150 (not to mention you can easily get new or almost-new ones from the marketplace for well under 150 on a regular basis)

but yes if you want to discount sale codes and the Styleforum buying and selling threads, to go under 150 you are probably gonna have to go Uniqlo or those Gap jeans or Levi's STF.

Not quite, APC is known for not letting retailers ever discount their jeans. There are retailers who will let you drop the price if you email/call them, but the codes tend to not apply to APC denim.

Check Naked and Famous Denim, it's cheaper than $150 and is supposed to be pretty good.

Some of the affiliate links located at the top of this thread sell them.
