I have a small kid, so my denim gets washed at least once a year. But once he stops spreading every food source on them, that will likely feel too frequent.

I'm guessing bringing up unsanforized jeans would just be silly?

I really like Buckle jeans lately. at ~$80 a pair, and free tailoring, I was able to stock up on jeans that fit me pretty perfectly a few years ago and I haven't had to buy any new ones since. Prior to that it was more Big Star.

Yeah, it is a pretty good deal on jeans. See if there's a store near you.

There's a Uniqlo in every other mall near me... but that could be because I'm in California and it is a Japanese chain store.

You can also order it online but of course without the free in store hemming.

They use Kaihara denim.
https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/news/topics/2017011802/

I had a few raw selvage denim (Sugar Cane, Nudie) before... but I always found them a pain in the ass to care for, stain everything I sit on and they'd smell from not washing them for long periods of time.

The Uniqlo jeans are not raw but it is Japanese selvage and I can get 5-6 pairs for a pair of raw denim.

The Breakin' festival is coming thru Charlotte once again next year for the second time EVER with crews from all around the world and who knows...maybe I'll compete this time. Heh I've currently got a few vids floating around but only because my friends plead with me to let them get a video and my mantra is "don't capture the art, let the art create and be. Once you capture it, it's entertainment." I like to dance to make ppl happy, it thrills my heart when someone says "how'd you DO that" and their eyes get wide with amazement. My usual response is "I didn't do anything! That was created millions of years ago and God just happened to send it to me at that moment..." It's divine ART!



*Back on topic* glad to see most of the men here care about their appearances and the type of jeans they wear because people DO notice!

My go to brands for everyday wear are Lucky Brand Dungarees. I'm a 32 waist size with a confortable 34 inseam and no matter which style they always offer the optimal fit and durability. Inalso discovered Levi's 514's which offer a modern fit without being "skinny jean" type of nut crunching action.

My premium brand jeans that fit the best are Dolce and Gabbana, Armani, and Nautica. They're expensive but many of them I've had for YEARS and they still look and fit like brand new. I'd rather buy right once than to have to do it several times wasting money on an inferior brand product.

The biggest mistake most ppl make in denim care is washing them. That ruins them!! I've washed my D&G's maybe once in 5 yrs! You don't throw jeans in that mean old EVIL washer, you spot clean them and move on!!! STOP WASHING YOUR JEANS fellas! But don't take my word for it...

http://www.levistrauss.com/unzipped-...favorite-pair/
Glad to see there are some B-Boys still out there. A close of friend of mine that I used to go to warehouse parties with back in the day would always end up in a battle circle. Tall, skinny and one of the nicest guys you would ever meet until he got challenged. Homeboy can dance his ass off!

As for jeans and washing, I wear jeans to work M-F and work in a vinegar bottling facility. My jeans get washed weekly. With that being said, I prefer old and faded look versus the raw look. Don't get me wrong I like and can appreciate the look of raw but I'm a grey t-shirt when it comes to personality and style...lose, comfortable yet classy and tinge of danger.

I've never owned any D&G jeans. I'll have to check some out.

I've owned a few pair of buckle. Again, biggest disappoint in jeans is shallow pockets and every pair of buckle I've owned were the shallowest of pockets. Seemed like they didn't last very long either. Holes close to the back pockets wore pretty quickly.

I have a friend who swears by Big Star and that's all he will wear.

yes, i think so. and getting carried away is the whole point, lol. it's fun to watch these crazy Japanese craftsmen fetishize something and go to insane amounts of detail to get something just so. it's kind of the same concept/attitude that gave us Nakai and his RWB's.

Thanks for the tube lclip...

All I can say is keep dancing and moving its a tremendous workout...stay healthy buddy!

Dolce has some neat stuff but $400-$500.00 for a pair of jeans is over the top. But high quality jeans look great especially with a crisp white shirt and a pair of Ferragamo's.

All jeans except your Saturday work levis should go to the dry cleaner regularly!

No jeans in the history of jeans should go to the dry cleaner. As a matter of fact, outside of wool, nothing really should go to those hell holes. Launder and steam my shirts, and I steam wool between torturous trips to the dry cleaner.

Jeans get a soak in the tub, and hung to dry.

And a nice crisp white shirt with some distinctive jeans goes miles for getting you noticed. Had a guy dressed like this come in the other day and it set me on point instantly. I commented outfit and watch and asked the brand and he replied "Rolex" and kept it pushing. As he walked off I turned to try and catch the label on his jeans and it was indeed D&G. Btw no, I wasn't oogling his rump, just admiring how he was dressed.

He wasn't in the greatest shape but you could tell he cared about his appearance. Ppl do indeed notice these things. Heck even cheap jeans make a man look nice, it's just the way that they care for them and themselves.

Once again a subject with some substance here on the Bimmerforums. I love it.
Appearance is important. My Mom, God rest her soul, always looked nice and dressed sharply. She took great pride to have her kids look good too when it was appropriate. We always had to dress to go to church on Sundays and special occasions - shoes polished, clean shirts and slacks and heaven forbid if we forgot to comb our hair and clean our finger nails. That stuff stays with you for life.

To me dress jeans a starched shirt and nice shoes and a sport coat is the daily attire of choice, then a suit when necessary.

I just checked the label on my dress jeans..."dry clean only". I've taken several pairs of dress jeans to the DC...so far no problem. My every day Levi's go straight in the washing machine.

They're button fly with a tapered seam that still gives you room to move and breathe without being nut crunchers, but enough space to still give some definition to your shape and muscle definition (especially if you're on the thin side).

They retail for about $250-300 but if you buy this spring since they'll be the fall 2018 collection you're GUARANTEED to get a FANTASTIC deal!!

These with a nice cheap black Gap vest will get you noticed.

If you don't wanna go that expensive, Macy's will have this same cut on discount in January in their INC brand which are just as fashionable and durable and retail for about $60 and much lower priced if you sign up for their mailing list. I've gotten them for as low as $15 but that's with using all of my coupons and whatnot. Be ye SAVVY shoppers!
Man, as much as I appreciate that, I'm anything but on the thin side. I'm 5' 10" and 180 pounds. I need to loose about 30 pounds to not be considered obese by national standards.

I almost exclusively buy Diesel "Belther" style/cut jeans. Nobody does worn and fatigued better than Diesel, plus they just fit me perfectly. Knowing a 34x32 fits with this style makes online shopping a breeze. Most finishes/washes retail around $230, but you can usually find them on sale for as low as $160 or so.

I have the following washes: 848Z, 666Q, 675B, 854S, 850U, 084BV, 0684P, 0687J
