Which is the best bang for your buck.. Someone was telling me Samurai is way better quality, but i was thinking you could get the same thing in APC or N&F

Samurai is far superior quality. The only thing that would come close is if you got one of N&F's collabs, like the Oni Denim or Momotaros. But still, I might say Samurai's are better than even those. Regular N&F's are actually kinda bad quality, and APC's are ok but Samurai trumps them both for sure.

Btw, why the double-post? ;)

Absolutely NO comparison if you do research. Samurais build and quality is immensely superior to APC and N&F. But not really the best bang for the buck lol.

Agreed. Samurai's are a little overpriced for sure, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a better quality denim.

Bang for you buck..N&F

best quality..Samurai>NF> APC

Never had Sams, but they look incredible!! For NF I have deep indigo and elephant 2 which are both pretty nice material. Deep Indigo construction is pretty good..nothing I can complain about. E2's construction is...eehh. Just received my first pair of APC's two days ago and they don't seem that bad. Think they'd be a great summer jean.

But if you're just trying to get the best bang for you buck I'd say NF. If you've got money and want quality and really nice looking denim then I'd say get the Samurai's.

samurai's are way better quality, but you need to determine if they are worth it to you. some dudes can afford it without hurting their wallet. since you're asking this question, just get some n&f's or 3sixteens and determine if you want something better. not everyone needs the best jeans in the world

samurai, check out PBJ as well.

APC rose their price like a mf and imo their material seems like it decreased in quality.
Naked and Famous always doing stupid shit like glow in the dark denim.

Go with a company that is legit and stays legit.

I think that fit looks good. Thing is their skinnies aren't that tight on me. Their super skinny jeans pretty much fit like that on me but a tad tighter.

people going to hate on A&F because of the name. Their denim has to be like 14-15oz and are just as durable as any other brand on this site.
