SUPERDENIM SMALL QUESTIONS THREAD (Use instead of making new threads)

Recommended Posts

i guess you could just go and reinforce the edges of the hole with denim on the inside if you don't want to put a patch over it... but it'd probably look better with a patch.

A few questions

1. What's the most comparable cut in Nudies to APC new standards? slim jims?

2. If I wear a 29 in the apc ns, should I go 30 or 31 on the nudies?

3. Where can I pick up some non raw edwin's online?

4. Which edwin cuts are slim/skinny/ cut like the new standards?

5. How should I size myself compared to the NS in edwins?

6. Which Levi's cut is most comparable to the new standards?

thanks.

Can anyone fill me in on the difference between APC Cures and New Cures? Specifically - has anyone had both, and if so are the tag sizes comparable (do you wear the same tag size in each)? Thanks.

i believe the difference is in the rise. new cure is lower rise compared to old cure. iirc what the lady at APC told me.

Thanks, Poly - sorry I saw you responsed on the APC thread as well - I'm thinking of ordering a pair of Cures and wondering how I should guage the waist. Some APCs I've bought that were older were actually true to size or even smaller than the tag size.

I'm getting ready to soak my jeans for the second time, and I need to know what will shrink them better, warm or cold water. Also how long should I let them sit in water for? If you must know, I'm doing it in the wash machine.

the hotter the water, the more they will shrink. you can use the washing machine, but a tub or a kitchen sink is just as easy, and wastes less water.

and 90 minutes is a good start on a soak. it varies though. samurai denim will need more than apc, because its heavier/slubbier. slubby means bumpy and unprocessed, made on a shuttle loom.

APC are sanforized they don't need any soak!!!

GregNYC There are some jeans like you are talking about, check out skulls at fabfour.co.jp

also, you might wanna try your hand at overdying raws on your own, give it a touch of DIY.

Thanks! Those skulls do look dark enough. Kinda shiny in the photo. I wonder if they can be ordered in the West...

Other black jeans I have include Carhartts and 501s. They could use some DIY dying. Maybe I'll go for some RIT!

I wore some raw indigo LVC 1955s to work the other day and didn't get busted!

does all natural dye will have a greenish fade?

for example, SD-D01 is using natural dye but as i can see it's very much blue, does it means that it'll have greenish fade after few washes?

unlike the veggie dye for nudies or sc40500, they have a greenish tone when they're still raw

this is a great thread for people like me who are learning learning learning

here's another question

i'm wearing nudie ralfs and loving them. what's a similar, modern fit? i.e. APC and LVC offer really high rises, i'm intersted in a low to medium rise, slim yet relaxed jean like the RRDS, but maybe without the bootcut.

skulls? pure blues?
