    found my dry selvage jeans waiting for me when i got into work this morning....a BIG thank J.

    these are very nice jeans, frankly, i cant believe how cheap they were. the fit is very much like a classic Levis 501 and i was surprised they are sized as tagged. the denim is nice and the green selvage stitch is very cool. this may be the "Gap" of Japan but if you didnt know otherwise you'd think it was a much higher brand.

    Glad to hear you guys are liking them. I've been wearing my APCs pretty much every day since I got them, but one of these hot days I'm going to break out the cotton/linen Uniqlos again.

    Yeah, man... where you been? Speaking of which, where have you been? Are we going to do that peccary glove project? I emailed you a while back about it, didn't hear back. Did you get the sample pairs?

    I want to buy a pair of regular fit japan selvage denim (the ones for $80).

    When buying a pair of APCs in the past i was able to find numerous purchasing guidelines (size down two, much stretching, sanforized and won't shrink up much with hot soak, etc.).

    Can someone give me some similar tips for the Uniqlo jeans i mentioned above.

    I need to know by Friday.

    -TIA!

    for the money, I've been really happy with the uniqlo jeans. No complaints at all and I would buy them over APCS everytime.

    Thank you,

    I am mainly concerned about fit. I wear a size 34 in pants, but for APC I wear 33/34. I am 6'3" and 186 pounds. I am curious how the fit compares.

    was it the new uj selvedge or the older made in japan selvedge? the new uj's are still pretty decent but the japan ones were nicer. the uj's are cheaper tho..
