small questions thread (use before making a new thread!)

Recommended Posts

I can get a APC Petit Standard in japanese selvedge, but I don't know which size to get between 26 and 27. I mostly wear my jeans in size 27 (even 28 sometimes) with a waist around 37,5/38cm.

 

I heard the PS can get two sizes bigger, Is it the same for the selvedge ?

 

Thanks

kuya kuya, I've been meaning to try on the Everests at OCLA. If they fit anything like the Himalaya's then it's safe to go up a size, but I'll let you know once I try them on first hand since we're the same size.

Maybe someone knows more about this type of Carhartt Jeans? Inside it says Railroad Jeans.

Looking for some cheap black cords (levis 511)

Anyone know if these are true to size/big/small?

I'm a 31 but only have the option for a 30 or 32

and don't have a stockist near me to try on.

Cheers

Levis literally has about a two inch margin of error on all of their garments, what with different manufacturing facilities and standards, so it can be hard to accurately buy them online. But if you have your heart set on them and indeed have no way to try them on in person, I too wear a 31 and usually go 30 with Levis. 32 will almost certainly be much too large for you. If they're too loose, generally a wear or two will stretch them out.

 

Good luck!

Universal. As long as the lamp doesn't use a whole lot of juice, you'll be ok. I've never had issues with small appliances. I think you'll be ok as long as you don't use halogen bulbs or something. When my folks lived in the states, we brought a bunch of stuff from JPN, we didn't really have any issues.

 

Hair dryers and rice cookers, which use a whole lot of electricity, wouldn't work without a transformer.

do jeans with 34" inseam vs 32" inseam have the same cut (just the former is longer at the bottom), or is the taper on a 34 different?

 

i want to buy a pair of hex cash, but they're 34" inseam and i'll need to hem them!

i need some help changing up my denim. i'm looking for black skinny jeans. i've been wearing levi's 510s for a while now but i go through pairs way too fast, so i'm considering something from Acne. could someone please tell me which is closer in fit to the 510s, the Max or Ace? Also which black wash do you like better, Sing or Cash? thanks!

does anyone have a wallet with a zip around it (i.e. most of the cdg ones, dries, toj etc)? my cards are constantly scratched to fuck and i've had this one card for a week and it already looks twenty years old - is it possible they are getting scratched on the zipper teeth when taking them out? i'm kind of dumbfounded as to what's going on.

that sounds like exactly what's happening. my debit card & id are pretty noticeably maimed from my porter zip wallet.
