    What's with Jordache? My only recollection of this company is that they made horrible clothing in the 80s. Now, I see taxi cabs go by hyping this stuff as being sold at Bergdorf's.

    You know ... the Veggie Indigo just looks kinda odd to me. I prefer the regular raw Nudie denim, but to each his own.

    I really like Earnest Sewn's Hutch--the fit is great, as is the distressing (it's really about par with the GTO 1-years, or perhaps slightly better). However, I don't know why the knee whiskering on the back is a lot lower on the Hutch than it is on the GTOs ... but then again, I didn't quite like it that low on the older PDC models either. Still, it's my main gripe about them.

    And if you shop around, you can still find the GTO 1-years at close to their original prices. The only problem is that fewer stores seem to stock them.

    In the meantime, I'll have to give Da'mage jeans a shot.

    I have Jp Da'mage jeans, "Ice" i think (or white). I love them. Any suggestions on how to wash them though?

    Also, where are some good places to buy these jeans? (online, because I am currently in Utah).

    Nice list.

    Nudies are my #1 for now at least. I do like the Grey Cast, but I definitely prefer the standard indigo.

    Inside out in cold water, line dry.
    Urban Outfitters has a couple of Da'mage jeans on its Web site.

    I agree - they look like old man jeans to me.

    Thanks, and I already have the Jp's. I am looking for more like nudie/apc/ernest sewn jeans. What do you suggest for a medium wash jean (all my others are dark)?

    The PDC 2-year wash is a nice medium-dark wash. If you want to go a little lighter, try the 3-year.

    The Hutch Milk wash is also pretty good, but it's lighter than the PDC 3-year wash. There's also the Rogan Vapor wash.

    A couple of good clothing sites for jeans include GoClothing.com, RevolveClothing.com, ActiveEndeavors.com and eLuxury.com. You could also call up stores like Barneys or Ron Herman and see if they'll ship to you.

    BTW, does anyone know where I can find Loomstate jeans in NYC? I've heard a lot about them (well, OK, mostly from this board), but I've yet to come across them.

    Barney's Co-op on the upper west side had Loomstates last time I stopped by.

    Like with all good jeans, as infrequently as hygiene allows, inside out, and with a soft detergent.  Hand wash if not too lazy (I often am).  

    Best online price for Da'mage: workmen.com.  About $40 cheaper then anywhere else.

    Barney's stocks Loomstate. Never tried them, but they didn't strike me as that great. They are 100% organic cotton though. So I think that's there biggest selling point.

    Uniqlo Jeans. You simply *can not* beat them for the price. Superb denim quality, unwashed, tough denim with double selvage, and only $50 retail.

    Sorry, workmens.com. BTW, Charles, you owe me $30 of those $40 savings for the crack. PM me for my paypal info. Or I'll send the Triad after you, as Styleman insinuated once.

    For Nudie, www.zoovillage.com. You'll need a European friend's help. Still cheaper than buying them here, even with shipping.

    That was another really strange aspect of Styleman's postings on that thread.  What is a member of the British upper class doing with Chinese gangsters?

    I've seen Rush Hour 2; triads are not to be trifled with- PM sent.

    Please, can we keep this one not-Styleman related? These longer jean threads seem to be few and far between, would be a shame to see it turn into another cheap laugh thread.

    Subtle Hijack:

    Any designer denim advice for a man with large muscular cyclist/dancer thighs (ie 27" circ.) ? I laughingly remember trying on 10+ pair of jeans in NM and not even being able to put my leg in.

    I have also had trouble finding anything that doesn't sit low. Low rise looks pretty horrible on someone with small waist and large hips/thigs.

    I have tried going up a size or two and then the waist is crazy. Normal baggy fit Levi's fit me pretty well and don't even really look baggy....

    Bespoke jeans?

    Thanks,
    Scott
