Anonymous asked: I like the navy New Balances too! but don't you think the blue shoe on blue denim will not look that great together?

Navy is probably the most versatile colour you could wear. They’d look great with olive chinos or slim cargo pants. Blue on blue is not always bad.

Try and vary the shade of blue. Otherwise, you can find lots of other colour combos that work with navy.

Anonymous asked: What are your opinions of New Balances? Like the 574's or the M990's

New Balance is an underrated company! They’ve been around for the longest time and make great quality shoes. 574 and M990 are both classic, simple silhouettes.

Also, it’s like walking on puppies.

Get them navy joints and you’re good to go. Personally I prefer the 574 and 1400.

vsnryco asked: whats the difference between the apc petit and apc petit light?

Light has a chain stitched hem and elasthane for flexibility. I believe the denim is not as heavy as well, but I’m not 100% on that.

Anonymous asked: Hi, I recently came across brands that now sell raw denim that has been washed once. Would these kind of raws still get the same fades and contrast with daily wear??

They would not get the same kinds of fades and contrasts as raw, unwashed denim. Actually, it shouldn’t even be called raw denim if it has already been washed! They will still fade, but not as much as unwashed denim. When the denim is washed, the water takes out all the starch which is why the washed denim is very soft. Without the starch, you can’t set in creases and folds as well and the denim won’t experience as much abrasion.

Anonymous asked: Is there any denim that comes with a 32" waist, 32-34" inseam, and ~6.5" opening, or am I stuck always getting my jeans altered as soon as I get them?

Most of the time you will have to get them altered. The jeans manufacturers cannot accommodate every single body type unfortunately so the fits must appeal to multiple body types at once!

Nudie High Kai has a 6.5 leg opening on a 32 waist. It’s a unisex jean.

Anonymous asked: i wear levis 513's(but hate the stretchy thing happening now) would an apc or unbranded have a similar fit? With a slimmer leg opening would be awesome.

Unbranded Tapered and the APC New Standard would be the closest fits.

Anonymous asked: I'm thinking about getting my jeans tapered again from mid-calf down because it bothers me how loose they are around shoes, especially high tops. I've got some stacking going on, do you think they'll set okay after they get altered again or should I just let them be?

They should be OK. They’ll form to your body as long as you keep wearing them.

Anonymous asked: Can you recommend any black denim jeans for a skinny male? I currently own a pair of APC's New Cure in Size 28 and in my opinion, they could be a bit tighter.

Anonymous asked: What is the difference between raw denim and raw selvedge denim? I have a pair of the Williamsburg Garment Districts Grand Street's and I love them, especially for the more than reasonable price point. I've had them for 6-7 months and finally realized they were raw, not raw selvedge. Do both types of denim age / fade similarly?

It’s tough to tell you the difference between the two general fabrics. Every denim is different. You can have good quality, non-selvedge denim and bad quality selvedge denim. A selvedge denim jean will usually have the selvedge ticker on the outseam:

The selvedge usually means the denim was woven on an old-school shuttle loom. This gives the denim some irregularities and imperfections that contribute to the way it fades. It’s how jeans were made originally and is a homage to past production and quality.
