i just got another pair of prps, I ussually where 32s, but in prps, if you are a 32 definetly get a 34 cause a 32 will be tight, especially after you wash them. If your looking for prps my friend has a few pairs of 34s with the tags because he saw them in a store and jsut snatched a bunch up for selling because of how rare they are, im not sure if im allowed to advertise like that on this forum, if im not just let me know, but just shoot me an email if you interested.

PRPS def doesnt fit small. If anything, go AT LEAST a size down, especially how baggy the legs are. Things are cut HUGE, waist fits good, but they are in general a baggy cut jean. Still Stellar though.

Well, that is kinda true.....

PRPS is defintely a wider/straight leg jean, but the waist measurements actually do run a tad small. The rise on them is also rather high, so buying your true size will probaly do you fine in the waist, and give you a loose leg. I sized up on one pair and wear them kinda low and baggy, and bought my selvages in my true size.

If you size DOWN you will most likely have to wear them slightly higher on your waist than you are used to....depending on how you wear your jeans ofcourse.

Haven't washed either of mine yet, so I can't comment on shrinkage

Fuck....more shit to buy

yeah im a 34 and got a 34 and it fits baggy, i wish it were a little slimmer but that's ok, i haven't washed it yet. The once rinse it comes with should do me fine for a few more months.

I got a 32 to fit my 32, and now I wish I'd got a 31.

Faultless jeans with a great fit but they've stretched out to shapeless.

^that's probably the reason. no one knows about it that much so it's sitting on shelves and sellers are trying to make back their money.

Although the general public isn't "up" on prps.

If something's too good to be true, it most likely is.

If anyone cops from ebay, post up them pics!

PRPS has lost its lustre for me when I saw all those pairs on eBay. It's a bad thing if you want underground stuff...

it's okay to have stuff other people have. at least they aren't selling them at target or walmart.

^yeah,i'm pretty sure that stuff on ebay is legit, just no one is buying it so retailers have to fling it up on ebay. I haven't seen a one-wash selvedge or un up on ebay now. Most people who would see prps see it at the same price as 7 or true religion and get the one with more cachet.

so many of those ebay pairs advertise them as having 33 inseam..I thought all prps so far have been 32 inseam?

one thing that i noticed of all the PRPS jeans on eBay that makes me skeptical is the tags are all new. based on what i seen in stores, PRPS jeans always have crumbled tags, kinda like True Religion tags.

i jumped the shark and got one for $63 shipped. i'll keep you updated as soon as i get it. anyone know how to prove authenticy?

i just can't imagine them knocking off prps with all this exact detailing (camo pockets, stitching, stamp inside the pocket...) while they're not even that popular to the random person. it's not like they have evisu, seven or diesel status yet.

Those look pretty real to me. Like you said, I can't see why anyone would bother faking Prps.

However, as aipume said, all authentic Prps jeans I've seen have mashed-up, wrinkled tags. Yours appears to be crisp and brand new. Weird...

I'm not an expert but they look totally fine. I remember seeing a pair of non selvedge PRPS at the duffer store with the same pocket detail,The stitching and labels are in order when compared to the pair of classic purple selvedge I'm wearing, plus the black rivets are there and the coloured button fly is in the right correlation too ... only thing is the single cloth pocket ( which I didn't know about and which has been covered futher up the thread) and the fact that the tags aren't/wheren't "weathered".

Just be happy and stop worrying. You got them for absolutely sweet fuck all. People in London paying $600 for worse pairs than that. True.

re: the tags -- I suppose it's possible that these jeans were, for whatever reason, regarded as seconds/etc. by Prps and as such did not receive the very final bit of retail preparation -- tag mashing.

but I'm just making shit up so who knows.

i guess those are real, the tag mashing seems the only thing off. heck i got a pair of the selvedge classic for 50 bucks shipped.

I've handled them in shops, and all the details (except the minor point of the tags) look correct to me.

I agree the denim seems a bit thinner than one might wish... maybe 11oz? I don't think it's stated anywhere.

Still, it's nice cotton (political questions aside, Zimbabwe cotton is among the best in the world) and I'm sure you will enjoy wearing them...

yeah i have to add to minya's comment and others. when i got mine from ebay, i just couldnt tell if its fake or not. the only sore thumb that stood out was the tags being razor sharp. i guess its either 1) grey markets or 2) ridiculously good fakes.

ah today's market can be unpredicatable

I picked up a pair of the dirty wash Prps from eBay, and I was just wondering a couple things. How much will they stretch? When I wash them, will they shrink much in the length? Just wondering before I get them hemmed up...thanks!
