Black jeans lovers!!!

Recommended Posts

A little bit of both, I want something all black that isn’t super skinny. The best pair I’ve seen details wise are the PBJ-XX019 but I think they are too tapered for my liking.

Is IH's 21oz SB denim too heavy for you? IH makes several cuts in SB. I had a pair of 9634z a few years ago but sold because they were a size too big. Although the denim is not selvedge, it's really bad ass. I've always wanted another pair. Maybe consider the 888S-SB, which is the limited edition selvedge Superblack? there are still some in your size...

I think the IH stuff might be a bit too heavy for me, but I really want black denim that fades. So if IH would’ve made them out of SBG instead of just SB in the 888 cut I probably would’ve bought a pair.

Both the SBG and overdyed flagship denim are really appealing, but the 634 and 888 are too slim and it doesn't seem likely that they'll ever do a 1955 in any nonstandard fabric

I can highly recommend the Pure Blue Japan XX-019-BB 

https://rivetandhide.com/shop/brands/pure-blue-japan/pure-blue-japan-xx-019-bb-relaxed-tapered-jean-double-black.html?___store=default

They are slim but really comfortable.

Denim is soft and easy to move in.

I went true with a size 32.

 

I am hoping that Iron Heart do the 888 in the SBG. Really wanted the 555-03 to work for me but the waist is ridiculously large. If they bought it down to proper tag size they would work.

Have you guys checked out the Black Marias by Left Field? I know Christian so I'm partial to the brand but the Collect Mills black denim fades beautifully. The Xinjiang denim doesnt seem to get as much contrast as the Collect in my experience but that could be due to my heavily washing schedule. 

The denim is available in all three fits, the Greaser straight 501 style cut, the Chelsea slim skinny from the thigh down tight fit, and the Atlas with bigger thighs and taper towards the ankle. I rock the Greaser to work in and the Atlas to look slim in. Ive have over 10 pairs of Left Field so lots of experience with the brand.

left field atlas cut is something I have been interested in trying. Dunno if there is anywhere this side of pond that stocks them. Or if Left Field would mark down to avoid customs

@spitfiredealer I’ve ordered a few times from Left Field in the past and as far as I remember, nothing was marked down though I think I managed to get lucky once or twice!

I would like the Charles atlast but without the heavy taper. 

So a classic straight leg in black denim

Gotcha I thought the atlas was roomier top and thigh than greaser?

Check out the Sugar Cane Type III jean. I got a pair a couple weeks ago and REALLY digging the cut and the denim.

Man, I'm really struggling to find a decent pair of black/black jeans. The PBJ 19s ended up just being a little too skinny for me, the sugar canes aren't tapered enough and I even decided to go and try LSG denim (since they were pretty cheap) and went and got them hemmed. They fit okay but honestly still a little too tight. I'm kind of stumped on what to get/where to look now.

Considering Amos is back up and running( I’m a bit late on the uptake), the GPWW in black. I have been concentrating on my Roys so these have not been worn too many times.

Try momotaro B)

Unfortunately most of Momotaros cuts don't work for me. Either too straight, or too slim. I could always taper but... I'll take a second look into them though!

@unorthodoxI’ve been tempted by those but the thigh measurements kind of scare me. Need at least 13 in. on a size 36. 

If you're curious, here are the measurements of mine that I ended up selling (hemmed to 30" though).

Waist: 18in
Front Rise: 12.25in
Thigh: ~12.8in
Rear Rise: 16.25
Knee: 9.25in
Leg Opening: 8.5in
Length: 30in

I love my Iron Heart IH-555-03's in the SBG denim.  These look awesome as they break in over time.  I think this is a cut that is often overlooked but fits really well in larger waist sizes.  I wear a 36.

Do you have measurements of your broken in pair? They don't seem too bad, but still a little wide in the leg so I'm curious
