Can you guys recommend a brand or cut of jeans that would work for me? I blew out the crotch in my 501 STF's, and I didn't have very much flexibility in them. Stepping onto something decently high was a no go.
I shrunk 34x36's, I liked the way they shrunk but like i said I didn't have much mobility. I want to buy selvedge this time, but it seems like only skinny guys buy selvedge. So far I've considered:
Levi 501 selvedge
Naked and Famous WeirdGuy selvedge
Nudie Jeans Hank Rey
Nudie Jeans Average Joe
In case you want more info I'm about a 33x34, but I have an athletic build.
So forgive my ignorance here, but I only read a few pages of the beginning of this thread and had a few questions..
1. Any particular brands I should look for in a first pair of RAW?
2. Is sizing as issue between brands with some running smaller or larger than advertised?
3. I wear jeans almost daily, anything I would need to look out for as far as the dye rubbing off?
Thanks in advance all!
2. Yes, absolutely. Try them on before you buy them, and they should be snug, not painfully tight, when they are new.
3. I have never had a problem with it, but it is possible, especially if they are wet. You can pre-soak in cold water to get some of the dye out if you want, but I've never had either APC or Tellason denim stain anything.
They're not raw through they come "rinsed once" I think.

The Gap selvedge is not bad at all, I have gotten a couple of really cheap pairs in the last couple years as seems they always go on sale. I also like the Uniqlo UJ Made in Japan denim as well, I have been wearing a pair I got in Tokyo for 9 months or so and still loving them, and I think were only about $40 converted.
Need to start at my Wings + Horns pair here soon too.
I got a pair of Naked & Famous Weird Guys on sale at the Barney's Outlet near me for $60.
They fit like New Standards, but have a lower rise, which I don't really like too much.
For $60, I shouldn't really complain, though.
holy sweet jesus, i thought i was the only one who refused to wash my jeans, thank God I don't stand alone, my jeans are rarely washed, don't exactly keep track of how long but I go for months on end before my wife confiscates them and puts em through the ringer

I recently dove into the selvedge denim at nordstrom rack.
On two separate occasions I found:
-Levi's Matchstick selvedge, dark blue almost black $55
wore these for about a month straight, they are still very starchy and the deep blue is wearing off onto everything light colored, my shoes are blue now and my hands are blue anytime I wear them. Not wearing them again until I do a cold rinse in the tub to get some of this dye off.
This guy did a review on the same pair.
-True Religion Phantom Matt Slim jeans. I got these cheap in TR terms. $100.
I hate the TR look with the horseshoes on the back pockets and tacky stitching but these are classy as hell. The horseshoe on the back pockets are not stitched but press formed so you cannot see them unless very close, the stitching is a nice yellow and the color and fit are awesome. Also, american made with an embroidered american flag, they are ncie jeans, wish I bought two pairs.
