    I bought a pair of sevens about a month ago, and love them. What should I get next? The pair I have feel like a tshirt....quite soft. I dont have a problem buying heavier weight denim, but I want them to be nice quality and that good stuff.

    I heard citizen sucks about coming out with new styles, you guys say true religions are not all that great and their styling is a little
    flamboyant for my taste, sevens are nice.

    What is the general consensus on AGs? I'm not sure I'm quite ready for a pair of raw denim, nor do u really understand what that means (if someone wanted to point me in the direction or learn me on the subject).

    Thanks

    Around $200 doesn't bother me

    I dont know what style/fit to buy. The sevens are the only pair I have that fit me. I lost about 40lbs in the past 8 months so as you can imagine pretty much nothing I have fits anymore. I like straight legs but I have large (muscular) thighs that keep me from buying anything with a really slim fit. But I wear a 31-32 waist.

    oh ok. Raw just means there is no wash to them, right? Does the dye come off on underwear or whatever? (dumb question?)

    luzl the denime bible.
    if thou lets thy denime lay upon the raging waters of the red sea before 6 moons have passed, god shall smite thee and iron out the creases in your honeycombs with anvil'd lightning sticks

    200 opens up quite a few options for you. Definitely go with something raw, I'd say. Nudies and APC are good choices. Take a look at www.cultizm.com for really good prices on nudies, remember you pay 20% less than they show because we dont pay VAT.
    You can definitely get selvage denim for that price range, so do that for sure.
    Someone mentioned flatheads, I thought they were a lot more than 200 though, so :dunno:

    yea flatheads start around $280. I'd go w/ some APC's in that price range. Or some RRDS nudies

    I dont want to spend $200 on a pair of pants that I can't try on first. That's the issue I see with nudies. I dont know anywhere in Oklahoma that sells them retail.

    :werd:, the RRDS is a great choice. 180 or so at cultizm I think. He mentioned he likes straight cut though I think. Straight sven selvage on sale for 150 there as well...

    :rofl: I'm not even sure, just looked it up and it's [SIZE=-1] Atelier de Production et de Creation apparently? I'd recommend the new standards...not too tight, not too slim.. APC denim stretches a LOT. 3 inches isn't unheard of. Take your waist, size down a size or two (dunno how u like your denim to fit, size down atleast 1 though). If they don't fit, they will after you wear them for a bit. mad stretchy, son.[/SIZE]

    JOHAN > APC

    everyone has APC now, and the JOHAN line is limited this year so once they're gone they're gone
