get a pair of levis 514 in the tumbled rigid finish for 30 bucks. i researched and found out prior to purchasing them that they dont fade very fast or if at all according to styleforum members but have a nice strait, semi slim fit with a lower rise and the denim is thicker than some raw stuff ive seen although its not more than 14oz. i know they will honeycomb and form creases if they are worn damp or have starch applied and they look as raw as my other pairs. i would say the fit is not as slim if you are a smaller dude. i wear 30/31 in most denim and barely fit in the size 30. the thighs are slim but not tight and they are totally strait from the knee down. ive heard others that they compare to the pure blue japan 005/008 fit when the pbj's are sized up 2. my pbj are size 31 and def a bit slimmer. lots of info on sizing ect on below link. note that later on the thread is when they mention the tumbled rigid ones i am talking about.(page 13)
