I agree, sleeping in raw denim can be hell.

On a sidenote, APC PS or Nudie Slim Jim Dry Japan? Someone sway me.
post #1527 of 1664
I like the fit of slim jim better, but the nudie branding looks pretty weak imo. Also I hear apc is a little better quality denim. Both are nice jawns

I think apc holds their dye better, thus better...

Besides, see way too many nudies.

i much prefer the fit and deep indingo color of slim jims over apc's any day

if you like slim jims, you should be interested on NS instead of PS



slim jim dry japan tapered to 17.5 and backpocket stitching and nudie branding removed

Got these NCs in today (sz 26). I was really worried about them being too small but I think the fit is nice. I bought them used (about 2 weeks in) so I never had to go through the super painful stretching process But since I'm a little bigger then the previous wearer, they will probably stretch a tad more





Not really progress of course, just wanted to have a reference a year or two from now.

When you get them tapered, do you just taper the hem or the knees too?
post #1532 of 1664
It's a really good fit Dave! It looks good on you..
post #1533 of 1664
Stack them Dave, this isn't SUFU.
post #1534 of 1664
Haha, belive it or not sufu said the same ^^ I don't cuff while wearing shoes, its just annoying sometimes when wearing them around the house to have the hem stretch under mah heel :P

Anyways, I've been refraining from stacking at all

Thanks

Dior MiJ 19cm after a day restoring an old cupboard. Has collected some dust from grinding, me likes, but tones down the contrast on the lap. Almost four months since last wash with regular wear of around three times a week. Fully stretched now, so need a wash soon. Maybe after the cupboard is finished, no later than 2nd of april as we are moving houses on the 1st of april and I might wear them for that occasion as well.

I am likely to start my next project within the next days, but still unsure of cut and color. Maybe I will start a black and blue at once.

I didnt care for a correct white balance, but you get the idea. Some pics are blurry as hell as my tripod isnt making it anymore...

Comparison shot with my worn in pairs and the new MIJ raw (from left to right: DDG, MIJ raw, MIJ raw)

Shit, DH addict is on the way... after the Diesel another f.cking expensive hobby. I need DH raws!
post #1538 of 1664
^^how does your new MIJ fit?
god in this photo is crystal clear how DDG runs short...

@zdenal: once you start with diors, it's difficult to go back...highly addictive
post #1539 of 1664
For fit refer to WAYWT. I might post better and full length pics with more angles soon. They are fucking tight as to be expected as I sized down to a 28 this time. Not that the 29 is really too big (its perfect in the waist btw.) but I wanted it to be slim-skinny post stretch this time.

Referring to DDG: "Runs short" is relatively as they still have a bit of stacking and are longer than normal people would wear their pants. It is a completely different look from Dior though, but I still like it much and wear them a lot.
post #1540 of 1664
^yeah, from fit pics you posted you pull them on nicely
post #1541 of 1664
^^hmmm, good info. so I should be able to size down to 27 now. which gives hope for my 28 jakes.
post #1542 of 1664
as another reference, when I pass from 19cm to 17.5cm I have to size up one (W30---->W31)
and jakes are tighter and snugger than usual 17.5cm
post #1543 of 1664
And for further reference: 28 is my smallest possible Thanaz size and those 28 raws are the tightest I can go with.
post #1544 of 1664
omg, I'm totally confused which size to choose in DH raws. But I can't imagine to size down from washed MII. My waist still hurts and I'm really happy I stretched the ass area lil bit.
post #1545 of 1664
dose anyone know where I can buy Japanese denim pants? and can you buy those raw?

Hey vonWitzleben,

Where do you buy your Diors? They are freaking sexy.
post #1548 of 1664
^ they are faded 19cm DH raw. Cop them and worn them year without washing
post #1549 of 1664
first month for my Diors Raw MIJ
(average 3/4 times per week)
some creases are forming but any sign of fading yet...


those beasts are hard to fade
post #1550 of 1664
^ent: bought my raws via Luisaviaroma and from Dior boutieques. Refer to earlier posts regarding how long it takes, to transform the new andunfaded ones into "washed" ones.
