Just moved up. I started with American Eagle jeans and a couple of days ago I bought my first Levi's. Levi 514 size 30/30.

I've tried so many sub-$60 brands, and I like Levi's (the loose fit one) the best. I have rather thick quads and hamstrings for my narrow asian frame, so it's not easy to get a good fit for me.

Sugar Cane, Momotaro, Pure Blue and Samurai have raw denim in size 28.  However their actual sizes are bigger than 28, they have to be washed or soaked for them to shrink back to 28.  The other alternative is to get one wash.

The Samurai has shrunk more after another hot soak and it's not as rigid as it used to be.  It has faded a bit in the fly and front pocket areas.very_evil_smiley.gif

I bought Iron Heart 634 One Wash 21 oz this time.  Its quality is excellent.  This denim is smooth but rigid at present.  It should be ready for wearing after a hot soak follow by a cold wash.

The denim is softer now after that soak and wash but the leather tag has hardened.  It's as hard as a rock !  May be leather conditioner will soften it.  rolleyes.gif

I just recently purchased a pair of 1969 Boot Fit Jeans (deep indigo rinse) from Gap and to my surprise they are a much better fit than my Levi 501 marlon's and much softer too !

I need to start dressing more high-er end. Anyone see how Scott on "Keeping up with the Kardashians" dresses or Nick Canon on "AGT" or Neil of "White Collar"? I need to be like them! My first step is Versace jeans, how do they fit?

Wear what makes you comfortable.  I like good fit and smooth denim.

I hope this was a joke.

Rocking Momotaro 201s, with Triple Works 1220NI and Eternals in rotation. The Momos are my favorite. Color is amazing.

I wear Calvin Klein jeans size 29 I think.

post #568 of 682

It's Pure Blue Japan XX-003 this time.  This denim is one wash in indigo but it's not as dark as my Iron Heart and not as smooth either.  However the denim is soft with good finish and quality.  

 

I think that's it for now, no more new denim.  This hobby is getting out of control.  biggrin.gif

Why?

This Pure Blue has small wrinkles or little bumps all over after a wash but it's starting to smooth out like the Samurai.  It's becoming softer too unlike the 21oz Iron Heart.  smile_phones.gif
