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

Recommended Posts

I can't decide whether to get the skull 5010 6x6 or the 5507 6x6. Im 5' 7 and weigh around 120. Which cut would be good for me?

^i'd get skulls, but thats just me. cure is too skinny and tapered for my taste, the 5010xx cut is awesome.

a lot of people would say raw or nothing.

i'd go for skulls 5010xx 6x6.

APC New Standard or Hipster?

(I'm only 5'8.5" and 30" waist... so sorta short and chunky -from gymming/fat- but with slimmer fit pants I do not look fat....)

thats depends on where you like to wear your jeans, below your waist or on your hips? the hipsters have a lower rise than the new standards.

Hum. Hipster is a woman's jean eh. Interesting. Is a sz30 hipster the same as a sz30 NS? I wear all my jeans pretty low... unless they're tight and i have to pull them up to buckle hahaha.

Apc New Cures/ Julian Red Hobos?

Or save up for Dior 19cm MIJ?

This is my upgrade from my nudie ssk, I want a slightly easier time on my nuts, and maybe a slouchier but still really slim fitted look.

I'm like 5'6 maybe a little less than or around 120lbs

Okay I'm gonna get my first serious pair of denim.

My Budget is around $ 130-150 or a few bucks more.

APC or Nudie?

APC. I live in my Slim Jim dry blacks and doing my best to not get a crotch blowout. I love Nudies cuts but they seem to fall apart easier. Get the APCs

I'd say they're about the same, quality wise. Nudie have more cuts available, but are generally more expensive than APC. You've also got to decide whether you prefer the minimalism offered by APC, or the more flamboyant stitching of Nudie.

APC, nudie is the crotch rip king, get them fron the denimbar with the 20% discount, or context with the 25% discount for first timers

APC New Standards are the perfect pair for your first serious denim. They're cheap, sturdy, and have a great fit. Try them on or buy them two sizes too small (vanity sizing is retarded).

Gonna grab a pair next week! I'll try on NS or NC. But I understand NC isn't selvage So yeah, I'll get which fit I like better. I'll size down 2, I guess... Oh god I'm so excited! My first real denim! :-)

Hipster are unisex with wider leg opening and lower rise compare to NS.

I don't think different model with the same size would fit the same. I'm sure that Rescue and Hipster have different exact waist measurement.

Looking for raw black denim, fit similar to New Standards or Imperial Dukes (not feeling the pocket stitching), and not willing to drop +/- $400 on a pair of Dior Homme's that I can't try on first. Straight leg is cool too.

I'm bumping this. Anyone else have anything to recommend?

Looking for summer weight denim with a fit similar to Sam S5000vx ie 9-10" rise straight leg and an 8.5" knee/hem in a size 30. I realize the SSDS fits this but looking for something nicer.

Hello-

I'm looking for a pair of skinny black jeans (preferably a dry/raw denim), and I was

hoping you would recommend a pair for me. I'm not looking to spend more than $400,

so anything in that price range will do. Thanks!

P.S.

If it helps, I'm currently rocking a pair of Kill City jeans as a temporary solution for my black denim need and I love the fit of these but not a fan of the quality.

Aside from Dior Homme 19cm black raws, you might want to take a look at Flat Head 4001s. Go to Self Edge's website for pictures and measurements of the 4001s.
