They are pretty tight so I would go with size up 1, some people size up 2 and still achieve a pretty tight fit..

**I don't know where the uniqlo thread went so i'll have to get on that.

The Samurais or the FH's are probably your best bet.

Yes.

I'm going to get some new cures but i'm unsure on how to size. I wear 29 in Levis 511s, so should I size down 2 from 29 or size down 2 from 28?

I can't choose.. I am new to raw denim & I can't choose between these 2 denims.

Ande Whalls & APC's.

Would it be a good idea to drop almost $100 more for the Whalls or to just start off with APCs?

APC's NS were my first pair I am sure you are going to love them..APC's are a
good pair to start off with..although the ande whalls are great also you would get a higher quality on the whalls..

if you want something cheap but great go with apc
if you want quality and willing to cashout go with the whalls

Thanks a lot bro! I'll most likely go for the APC's just because of the price & that I am new to raw denim.


I saw a guy selling his black imps but I was wondering how are you supposed to size for the Imperial Dukes. He says they're tagged at 36 but fit for a waist of 34.. will they be too big..?

^^no prob

yeah man apcs are good for a 1st pair
after the apcs you should go for a more higher quality denim

as far as the black imps dukes no man a tag sz 36 is really a 36.25 in the waist

if you have more questions about sizing on the imps..just give me a PM willing to help any1

Context does return
http://www.contextclothing.com/service.php?type=shipping_returns

They are really friendly so you can give them a call or email to finalize your sizing.

I'm not sure about the return policy of the other 2 stores I gave you, sorry.

They can't say stiff forever, and that is what stacking is, it bunches around your ankles.

You can
1) Use starch for your denim (not recommended) to stiffen then up again
2) Get a hem so you won't have to deal with the "bunching"

my N&f's are size 34, they're superrrr long. i can adjust my jeans to where i want them to sit on my legs, (meaning pulling up the pantleg to fix the stacks) but when i walk they just all fall to my ankles.. its fucking annoying because if they didn't do that i'd have sick honeycombs around the knees. any way to prevent the falling of my stacks? i doubt there is.. but i thought i may as well ask HB

the best and most efficient solution is going to a store YOURSELF and trying on the denim to see what fits best for YOU and what you like. if you're unsure, ask the person working at the store or read the tags on the jeans. i don't know why people don't just do this.

thats a pretty good idea. i was looking for an easier way to just do it at home and then shop online, but i guess i should go to the store and see how things fit. i just dont know where im going to go to shop because i dont think any stores near me carry APC or any of these other brands.

thats why u dont buy online lol unless you know for sure how they fit because you've owned that brand before or just want to take a chance on the size. its better if they do have a return policy though.

I passed on the Whalls, but my first pair was some Uniqlos. Now, I got RRL Slim fits.

My next pair
