  • Pistanator proved me wrong the leather shoes thread about Levi's jeans, so when my current acne jeans gives up I'm gonna get a pair of proper selvedge jeans

    This is my starting point

    eleven-shop.co.uk/collection/­mens/levis-vintage/levis-vintage-1947-50­1-deadstock-dry-jean-indigo

    Ideally I'd like something slimmer, but not skin tight. Where next?

  • APC do some slim selvage jeans but they look shit

  • edwin do some good ones, even with the doughnut buttons

  • Should be 'Selvage' 1st of all...

  • LVC 1967 505, sorted.

  • For slim (not skinny) sub-£100 denim, this is the biggest bargain out there right now. I'm kind of wary of giving it up tbh but I've got as many pairs as I need:

    For skinny (not slim) denim, the Uniqlo stuff smashes it. It's thinner denim, but you can pick it up for £30 and the fit is nice.

    I don't even bother with the PRS and the Sugar Cane and the Imperial and the like - beautiful jeans, esp Imperial, but I can't stand that retro cut.

  • hehe, i thought the same :)

  • APC do some slim selvage jeans but they look shit

    I've got two pairs of English cut APCs... Nice and roomy cut, if anything a bit farm hand but still look great... I'm about to dye them black...

  • Should be 'Selvage' 1st of all...

    Selvedge/selvage. Same difference.

  • Should be 'Selvage' 1st of all...

    Yeah, yeah....I know

  • You can't go wrong with Edwins and the Uniqlo are fantastic for the money, can't comment on the fit of the Uniqlo tho'...

  • I wear Levis 501 1966 & 1955, both ace fits

    Picked up a FREE pair of '55's the other night

    smug face

  • APC are shite.

    Anything from this lot:

    •Rising Sun & Co
    •Wrangler
    •RRG
    • LVC (1955) 501
    • Edwin

    Uniqlo are good for looks, honeslty= they're shite.
    I've gone through 2 pairs of "selvage" jeans from Uniqlo in 1 year.

  • Also, don't believe anything Pisti writes.

  • 'DENIME' from Japan are ace but dunno who does them in the UK anymore, 'American Classics' and 'Interstate' used to

  • LVC = shite

    If I'm honest, I'd go Japanese boutique... ^ Denime is OK but since Levi's made them get rid of the tab they're not as nice... Red tab > Blue tab > Stitched blue false tab... Very nice thick denim BITD, haven't seen them for years...

    Studio D'Artisan is amazing, Sugar Cane/Buzz Rickson's also fantastic... Also have a gorgeous Joe McCoy Type 2 which is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, lovely denim...

  • Only good denim comes from Japan, they've adquired all the good lasting machinery from American factories, taken them to Nipponland and started re-producing 'original' 14oz denim.
    That's the main difference.
    Uniqlo's denim is like 11-12oz denim, which can't take anything, it's like wool trousers.
    To have lifetime lasting jeans you need to go for anything likr 14oz denim = Edwin, LVC, RRG, etc...
    They're stiff as f**k, but will worn in very well.
    Also never buy any type of 'washed" or "rinsed"... always original indigo.

  • LVC = shite

    Lies

    Studio D'Artisan is amazing, Sugar Cane/Buzz Rickson's also fantastic...

    True.

  • But Buzz's good for cotton JeanStain.
    I'd pay the 150gn for those heather grey jumper.

  • Studio D'Artisan is a bit 'Evisu' for my taste, leaving Sugar Cane rocking the fucking show.
    Right now there's vintage chambray shirts on the bay for a song - SC.

  • Also, don't believe anything Pisti writes.

    I only deal in FACTS!

  • LVC = shite

    If I'm honest, I'd go Japanese boutique... ^ Denime is OK but since Levi's made them get rid of the tab they're not as nice... Red tab > Blue tab > Stitched blue false tab... Very nice thick denim BITD, haven't seen them for years...

    Wank!

  • The stitching on my Buzz's rotted... Weird...

    Probably cuz I wore them for three years without washing them... :S

    Studio D'Artisan is quality, dude... I got married in a pair and a sample blanket-lined Denime type 1 jacket... Sweet...
