Sugar Cane Denim

Recommended Posts

more sizing issues..

okay, i usually wear a 29 in regular low slung jeans. Energies, g stars.. but these are hipster cuts.

my energies are 15" across when laid flat, and my g stars are 15.5" when laid flat.

these fit snugly on the hip of course.

i also have a pair for evisus in 32.. but these are too loose for me.

now, i know all repros are made to have the jeans worn on the waist, but i like to wear them around the hips..

so, what size sugarcane 1947s should i get if i want to wear them on my hips, with them fitting snugly BUT not too tight after the first wash???

PLEASE HELP!

allacedout,

When buying vintage high-waist cuts, I buy one size larger than I do for low rise jeans. The jeans then ride on my hips rather than my waist.

If I were you I would get the 30.

I recently purchased a pair of SugarCane Hawaiis SC40401A

These:

They are pretty damn nice, but I think a little too extreme for me. Dye rubs off on your hands. Its pretty intense.

Size 34, brand new, tags attached.

I will sell them for whatever I paid. I can take personal photos if interested. Email me if interested...

Also, for reference, if I soak/wash a one wash pair, would I still develop good wear marks, etc?

Yo CL smooth, First off how do the jeans fit? Baggy, tight, snug, etc. If they are baggy i would do a cold water soak for about 3 hours. If they are snug i would take a bath in them. You will not loose much indigo at all from soaking the jeans. Many of the jeans that you see on the internet with great fades have been bought in the one wash state, which loses way more indigo than the cold soak. I have soaked two pairs of these jeans and have not lost much indigo at all. It wasn't even noticeable

I bought them in the one-wash state and haven't soaked them yet. It's been about a month.

CL: You should soak them. The waist will shrink as will the legs. The waist will stretch back out though. You may have to put the jeans on damp after the soak though.

how should i soak it? Wearing them? Inside out? For how long. Cold or hot water? how should i dry them?

Does it matter that i've already worn them for 3 days?

I'm kinda clueness, thanks for the help...

Just soak them inside out in cold water for about 3-4 hours. Spin them to get a lot of the wetness out. Then turn them right side out and wear them until they dry. The creases will form on the lap/thighs and behind the knees. You should be good after that. It doesn't matter that you wore them for three days.

Does anyone know which Sugar Cane fit ('45 or '47) is most similar to APC Rescues?

If I order "One wash" Sugar Canes will there be any more shrinkage provided that subsequent washes are 40 degrees and the jeans are hang dried?

I'm debating whether I should have them do the soaking/shrinking or me.

I don't think they will shrink more than that, I'm pretty sure they wash them in 40C.

They are roughly the same fit, but they have a higher rise than the 501s today. Better quality, and in my opinion, way more style.

You'll get alot more shrinkage if you get the one-wash rather than you washing it once. The one-wash won't shrink that much more. Also, the demin in the one-wash is pretty soft and fuzzy. It's not nearly as rigid as the unwashed after one soak.

Argghh..i hate asking these sizing questions, but I guess I gotta.

If i want to get the one-wash '47 Canes, and I normally wear a 32 in RRDS, a 29 in APC Rescues and a 34 in plain old regular 501's, would I be safe w/ a 34 in the Canes?

I'm going up a size because of the slim fit nature of the 47's...which I've never tried on.

I don't think the 1947 is all that slim. It's a little baggy in the thighs and butt. I usually wear a 30 or 31... so at first I bought a one-wash in size 31 but eventually sold that because they were too baggy. Recently, I bought an unwashed in size 30 and soaked them in cold water after I received them. They are a just a tad smaller than my one-wash. I'm hoping that more subsequent soaks will make them smaller.

So, I wouldn't go up a size. I would maybe get a 33. If you decide to get the one-wash, they'll be super tight at the waist. But after a week of wearing them, they'll stretch out to around the size marked the tag.

yeah, trini, I think bufo's right on the mark. I'd probably get a 33.
