Does anyone have some suggestions for something cut like the APC PS but with a lower rise? The fit is great, but the rise is annoying. Two inches lower would be perfect. I had a pair of S&S (Naomi, I think? Bought many years ago when they were making a run of organic/natural indigo) and the fit on these was even better than the PS (at least when I was standing still), but the rise was so low I had to stop wearing them. Railcar's look great, but after getting burned on the S&S, I'm wary of anything I can't try on first.

Budget is thin, but I'm open to stretching it for the perfect pair.

It's a shame that railcar tops out at 31, I like the fits.

^afaik steven from railcar will do bigger size by request. based on my experience size 31 viper can fit women who wear mens jeans in size 32-33.

jyoni; would love to see your wife's fit :)

scoutoutfinch; Viper rise is in between APC PS and Naomi, think it will fit you well... if you live in cali, you can drop by some stores that carry railcar and try em on yourself.

gonna take some shots of my girls 99BSP's when she gets into town tonight they are probably at around a year of wear. I think she has washed them once, although she doesn't wear them too rough. I love the fit on her, dem pockets!

i've got these as well. the fit is awesome and the colour is beautiful, however they are ridiculously low-rise. my plan is to wear the shit out of them this summer. i'll see if i can figure out how to post some pics later.

Hi all! Here is a preview of one of the styles for N+F FW2012 collection. I decided to start wearing them on Feb 29th and hopefully I'll get some nice fades after wearing them everyday for a few months.
This style is The Skinny in Indigo Power Stretch.
Can't wait for everyone to see the entirely relaunched women's line coming out for Fall!

^you wont be disappointed... i've been wearing my vipers and they're awesome :)



yeah, nudies are vanity size. 32"/33" inseam will give you quite amount of stackings if you're only 5'0, imo 35" inseam is way too much...
i dont have any experience with 3sixteen but if you wear tlj in size 24, you can also wear viper in size 24.

this is general explanation of how to size ladies jeans (think it can be applied to other brands as well)

thanks! that makes sense.. but are pure blue japan's vanity sized as well then?

Does anyone know how much the super skinny girl with spandex will actually stretch?

I got my girl a sz 26. She measures a 29 or 30 waist. She can get them on but they are tight as hell.

kayodic I will get some photos soon. She wants to send them off to BiG for a hem. Oh yeah, that's another "cute" detail added to the open-end stretch of those: a chainstitch.

Hmmm, you planning on hemming those? Something about the combo seems off; maybe a sleeker fit on the jeans would unify it a little. The heels are pretty badass, though.

http://www.railcarfi...de=RWJVIPERX001
I can't seem to find the inseam measurements..


Thanks! We are in the middle of updating our spec tab on our site right now. But For sizes 24 25 26 the inseam are 31 inches and for 26 27 28 29 30 31 the inseams are 33 inches. Please let me know if you have any other questions. The Vipers fit true to tag size pretty snug. Sizing down is not necessary. Viper true to size should be snug enough to compensate for the break in molding.

They can even be sized up on for just a bit of a relaxed fit with out rear waistband gapping problems.

hey my friend is looking to buy her first pair of raw denim, but i'm not too knowledgeable on raw denim for women, hence my asking in this thread :). she's looking for something with a high rise, slim to skinny cut, something similar to nudies high kais, but she wants a few more options. any recommendations? thanks :D

yes if they are pbj 1069 but im talking the guys jeans, pbj xx011 rise is 9"ish so i consider it as medium/high rise for girls and high kais rise is also around 9".

Great fit, angelachanny

*edit, carharrt kids circa 2000 or earlier had some great stuff for women. True replicas, not the cheesy kid-looking cheapness. My wife has an early kids' Detroit jacket with red quilted lining and superb tailoring. Shit looks like it could be an apc collab.
