    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.

    Workmen.com turns out to be an electrican website: "

    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

    The larger your thighs are, the more youre gonna want a boot cut to even out your the cut. Don't wear Sevens.

    How does the JP Da'mage sizing run? I noticed on worksmen.com that they only come in sizes 32, 34... However, I normally wear 33, so what size would people suggest I buy? I think the 32 would probably be fine, but I just want to check. Thanks.

    Depends. If you wear a 33 Paper Denim, go with the 34. If you wear 33 in GStar, go with the 32. I use the 33 Da'mage and wear Paper Denim either 32 (LTD) or 33 (nearly every other cut), but I tend to like my jeans to sit fairly low on my hips. I also fit into GStar 33 thouhg - the low boot cut, which is quite slim. I guess it depends how you want this pair of jeans to fit.
