I'm looking for something a lot slimmer than my APC NS. So far, the candiadtes are a APC New Cure or the Thin Finn. Are there any other jeans I should consider, and what are your thoughts on the cure vs tf?

I personally vote for the New Cures, simply because I prefer the lack of branding and the color, however subtle the difference may be. I couldn't help you with the comparison fit-wise, as I have only tried on the new cures.

Glad to see this thread! There have been a lot of these threads popping up recently.

if you're looking for "western" jeans it's pretty much those two, as well as April77 (if you don't mind stretch denim), but if you're willing to consider japanese...skull 5010xx would be the most immediate pair of jeans that comes to mind.

I'm in a similar situation. How is the fit on the Ande Whall Rakers in comparison to the New Cures and skulls?

The Skulls, while very slim, are not tapered much at all. If youre looking for a very tight leg opening, you'd be best off with April 77 or Julian Red Hobokens.

Anyone know a pair similar the RRDS?

I'm not into the tapered leg stuff, more a slim top but still slight bootcut at the bottom

neither of the jeans are anti-fit so i'm guessing that you're planning to size up...so my vote is for the straight svens just because i love my pair! the streaky, flame denim is pretty neat. :cool:

EDIT: just realized that you're planning on skating in these jeans so you might as well forget about nudies because they're notorious for crotch rips..

I've got some RRDS and they dont have any crotch rip at all

And I never said I'm going skating...

And yeh i forgot about the Imperials...might go out someday to get a pair. Has anyone tried ripping off one of the pockets? they're kinda oversized if you know what I mean

I was also seriously considering something from Ande Whall after seeing Superstar's fit on them.

skulls will last much longer, but you may want to experiment with APCs first, as they break in faster and they are cut a little more "aggressively"

I just cant decide between APC and Nudie. Thinking about New Standard and Rescue or Regular Ralf and Straight Sven. I think they both fade almost the same, Nudie maybe a bit faster. Or I'll pick up a pair of both, slick NS and a bit looser RR/SS :/

decisions decisions!

nudie will certainly give you a quick fade. are you looking for just that? if not, i'd go for APC - less expensive, really sharp silhouettes on their new standards and cures.

I have a choice this coming paycheck: A pair of Earnest Sewn Fulton Patriot Selvedge, LVC 1955 501s, Nudie Slim Jim in Coated Denim(never seen this was before), or a pair of Acne Mod Dry Clean

I'm a pretty skinny guy, 6'3 155, I've got a 30x34 waist. Which pair should I go for?

Those are pretty different cuts. The Slim Jims and Acne are pretty slim, low rise cuts, I'm guessing the Earnest Sewns are low, regular cut and the 1955s are a more generous regular rise with an anti-fit seat.

I would try them on if possible or hunt down some more pics of them, especially on people of your build

my bro wants a fit similar to my SDA 103's hes looking at NDG any other suggestions?

sda 003 for a different approach to the exact same cut (but lefty-twill). otherwise, might be good to try something like the full count 1108 in zimbabwee cotton. or, go back to the original, levi's '66.
