Can anyone recommend a jean that has a slim silhouette, like a New Standard type fit, but isn't raw?

And where I can get them from?

Am getting sick of raw denim.

I really like this wash on these blue bloods. Not keen on the back pockets though

What sort of info are you after? I've met the person behind it in the U.K. a couple of times he's a really, really knowledgeable and passionate individual. I've got a couple of shirts which I'm really pleased with and if you want something that's quite different to the fashion norm and all about the quality of construction then you could do a lot worse. The fits I've seen are all quite loose. Have a look here http://repeattofade.blogspot.com/ under the June 30th entry for more info.

Bought some Topman jeans for a party yesterday and the top button basically popped right out, do you reckon their fixable? Lost the button also, will post pics

Shops normally refuse to take an item back if the buttons have fallen off, wear and tear apparently!

Don't be stupid. The jeans are faulty. It's not like you've had them for long, is it?

Topman should be fine to take them back, but if they get funny just start mentionning the sales of goods act.

They just look like raws that I've been wearing for a week just with back of the knee creases starting to show. Not a bad thing tho because my black Nudie Thin Finns after their first wash don't look that good at all. Looked much smarter before the wash with no fading.

nice one - thanks. I have seen the Oki Ni ones and like the look. I wear Yen jeans, but as they are now defunkt, need to move on to something else. I cannot wear skinny as I got short but wide legs, so look fr%ggin stupid, so prefer loose like mi ladies
