    where to kop some Unbranded?

    any sales of late?


    Buy at urbanoutfitters.com or any of their retail locations. I haven't seen them on sale recently, but I've seen them for as low as $30 before.

    Just picked up some black TTS tapered. The fit seems pretty decent, what do you guys think? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The waist will stretch about an inch and the thighs will stretch as well. But it looks good right now. Skinny, size 1 up. Here are some pictures. 5 1/2 months. Taken at 5pm [​IMG] [​IMG] Taken at 630pm [​IMG] Starting to tear at the crotch. Ordered a free denim repair from Nudie, so will reinforce soon, but might do a cold soak at 6 months to strengthen the cotton.

    I like looking at your pics modern art and I like the obsessive nature of your project so keep it up! I was gonna do a similar thing with a pair of N&F jeans I have but I'm also lazy.

    I have recommended these for a few guys that were looking for cheap selvedge. I am going to take that back. I have had a bunch of loose threads that needed cutting, a belt loop that seems to be coming undone, and the rivets around both pockets look like they might pop off soon. I own a pair of grey skinny fit w/ around 1 month of light wearing.

    Nothing bad has happened yet, but I seriously doubt these are going to hold up past 6 months w/o some type of repairs.

    I really like the actual material though, but construction seems to be below average compared to my nicer brands. Even NF jeans seem to be miles ahead when regarding durability.

    I've had loose threads at times but that's about it, did you size down a lot?

    I went TTS. My waist as of right now measure around 33-33.5. I could have gone done even further, but I don't care for tight jeans.

    The loose threads aren't that much of an issue to me. It's the belt loop and rivets looking like they are going to pop. These have extremely light wear of nothing but walking around and sitting on my ass. 1 month is a conservative estimate as well.

    I would be interested if anyone else has had these type of issues with their jeans.

    I have a pair with about 75 wears and it's been fine, my other pair should only have like a half month of wear but I haven't seen any problems, I have heard that the top waist button pops off at times on these. Apparently the little things aren't done so well with these jeans

    Hey jimmyfingers, I've actually had issues with loose thread on my unbranded skinny as well (I sized up 1 from my true waist), and similar to you, it's not at all a big deal to me. As far as my belt loop and rivets go, they seem to be holding up quite well. I don't notice any potential problems in the near future. I've been wearing my pair everyday since the start of 2011 (today marks 119 days of consecutive wear), and for the most part, it's light wear - walking and sitting. True, construction and attention to detail could definitely be better. Overall though, I'm satisfied with the jeans for the price. Don't know if you've seen my posts in this thread, but you can check out my progress on my blog Without Wash (the link is below in my sig).
