    Note: I already posted this in the I have a jean question thread and did not get a response.

    I have looked at the following so far which are the closest to what I am after, but they are not available in my size W32. I prefer selvedge, but non-selvedge of decent quality would not be deal breakers either. There is a pair of Diors out there that I have seen, but $300 is out of my range.

    I've seen the Spurr's, they're quite a soft fabric, felt like I was wearing sweatpants.

    Nudie does a few of these heavy washed jeans and are usually well done, maybe even selvedge.

    APC's got some mid-blue wash NS's from a few seasons ago. i just saw them at Nomad here in Toronto.

    Synethese (I think) recently wore some light wash denim that looked ok, PM him.

    Thanks for the input whodinie , I probably should have mentioned my luck with those two as well. The APCs are bleached, almost white, and only in Petit Standard (too tight on thighs) and R&B does something like that, but I have not found it yet either. At least my searches have brought up different variations of RAW, O/W or darker fades.

    Hi M-C,

    Oh wow, did not know SPURRS felt that soft...changing my mind a bit now. Not, that there is much luck of finding them now anyways. I will call up NOMAD to see if they have those, NS would be perfect because the fit on PS on their website (http://store.nomadshop.net/collectio...s/apc-pspntsky) does not work for me.

    Those APCs are quite off from the shades I am after, even the Nudies, though closer, are still a darker shade compared to the examples I posted. My own faded raws look like that, so I am not all that interested in those darker shades.

    real life pic of the legacy ones:

    Are those the ones they sell on their website. The Color appears very different in that pic compared to their site. I hope it is the one in the pic then I would definitely be interested even if they are not selvage.

    I was thinking about picking up those RRLs as well. How did you size on your pair? I hear for Straight Leg you should go two sizes down and slim boot is TTS?

    the SBC in that wash actually measure TTS. i.e. a 34 will measure 34 at the waist. the thighs are small. on straights you could go down a size or two.

    Yeah, the thighs are usually my concern as well. As long as they measure around 12" on the W32, I should be okay. Are your W34 even less than 12"?

    Thanks,

    I didn't even know they made them in straights.

    I have the slim boots in 32x32. The waist was about 33" new and have stretched out to 34" aligned and pulled tight. The thighs on them are 11.75".
