THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

Recommended Posts

if they were shit he would never had carried them. more likely, there were problems with TSL themselves and maybe (as always) Levi's

^^ I actually went with the LVC 44's because I'm on kind of a Cone trip right now. I didn't even go in SESF to look at the TSL's because I might have bought them as well. However I doubt that they are 'shit', SE is not in the habit of selling crap.

SKulls, the very first pair of raw denim that I saw in my life that made me google what "raw denim" was. I'm heavily considering this 'cause i found a new pair at a steal $190

Or

i would want to own the pair that got me into the game. also, 190 is a good price.

and i'm not too fond of the way od denim looks.

how much stretch is there in the 21 ounce denim? looking at the size charts id need the 34s to give an inch or so to make for a good fit.

Looking to get into some ironhearts, BB ors 666s?

How slim do you like your calf area? If you have straight legs (non athletic) that pretty much get skinnier as they reach your ankles i'd go for the 666. If you have somewhat athletic calves or you have curves to your legs (as opposed to a really slender leg and calf) then go for the Buster.

So basically: Slim legs and want a really skinny leg look: go for the 666 or 301S

If you have decently athletic calves and your legs aren't that slender but you still want skinny fit, go with the Busters. They'll be more forgiving in your calf area.

Hope this helps.

I can give you comparison pics of the 666 and the 301S soon.

Thanks all for the info, I ended up going the BB as i've already got a pair of APCs when I want the skinny jean look ;)

IH 666 is actually quite similar in measurements. I was considering buying a pair of skulls or 666 amd went with the ih. Im still waiting on the jeans but yea. Theyre similar to skulls in terms of cut. Diff denim though

s050019oz. or s051019oz.??

5'8" 170 lbs, athletic build. I have S5000VX21oz. that I sized up one and I am swimming in them after both a hot soak and a hot wash and 10 wears. Currently wearing 501 STF 32x32 and these fit great.

Been lurking/searching forever and finally need some advice from the sufu gurus in this forum.

Thanks, y'all!

if you were between the S0500XX19oz and the S0510XX19oz and the first doesn't exist, the answer should be obvious, shouldn't it? ;)

does it have to be the heavy denim? the S0500XX cut comes in 15oz denim and might better for your liking

Im looking to add a 3rd pair to my rotation of S5000Vx and PBJXX007. Ive got my eyes set on IH (14oz, 17oz, 21oz sounds like a good trifecta), but just thought id ask here if you guys got any other suggestions to sort of 'cover all the bases' of denim.

You have two really slubby denim. Do you wanna stick with some slubs or maybe switch it up? Ih beatle buster uses the traditional 21oz. 666 uses 18 oz. Denim. Or you could get some 21oz strike golds. Super duper slubby. I just ordered some 15 oz strike golds so ive complete my set.

Here's my set up:

2 pairs of Simon miller One straight fit, one slim

Both 13.5 oz denim

1 pair of IH 301s 21 oz.

1 pair of 666 od 18 oz. After soaking the denim weighs about 19.25 oz.

And i also have a pair of 15 oz strike golds coming to me!

I still realllllly want samurais too but those will have to weight till i go to take5 in the spring

depends on you. if you like the ripped look, leave it.

but if you plan on repairing, then do it better now as it would be easier to do so
