The Jeans-fi thread - Page 6

post #76 of 682
I just got myself some Levi 511's. These are probably the best jeans I've ever owned. They're a skinny straight leg, so they're are really just half-way between regular straight legs and skinny. They're not too baggy, not too tight, and they look perfect.

the cut is the same, but the quality isnt, since they make them in china/pakistan the durability for me went down from 12-18 months to 6-8,

i only pick up levis in sales or outlets, i never pay full price anymore, not worth it since they stopped making them decently,

raw denim will never be soft until you wash them. denimheads don't wash their raw jeans for at least 6 months to get nice fading - hence giving it a personal look (determined on you lifestyle, how you wear your jeans).

after 6 months and a couple of washes, they will sure turn out to be the most comfortable (soft is one characteristic) jeans you'll ever own. it will take the contour of your body - it's amazing!

If you know your size then you can give online stores a try. Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, 7's own website, etc.

by raw denim, do you mean they're 100% cotton?

Unwashed, no distressing.

^ correct. Yes it's 100% cotton.

Does anyone have any tips for stretching in 100% cotton? Should I just keep wearing them?

<~ Denim n00b needs help/suggestion.

I'm looking for probably a nice indigo or raw/dry denim in 36x34 with a zipper fly (if possible) and another big plus would be "Made in the USA"

Denim that I've worn before and like the fit of are C1rca Select and Mavi. A nice snug fit in the bottom and thigh and a straight leg down. Not a skinny OR a relaxed fit. I am 6'2 and 185 - mostly legs, so I don't want to look like a tall stick, but I don't want to look any thicker.

you want to stretch them because they're tight? normally, constant wear will loosen the fabric.

if you're particular on where they are made, nothing beats a nice pair of levi's 501. if you're looking for raw, unwashed you might want to consider button fly. unwashed denim are initially stiff and loose. once it gets in contact with water it will shrink to fit. a zipperfly might not be in the right place after this process. in fact, i'm not sure if they make raw denim w/ a zipperfly.
