You must have missed me by a matter of minutes EVERS, were yours the Diors waiting on the counter? I almost walked out with them until I noticed the trademark stitching on the back pocket Laughing out loud

Anyone have experience with Naked and Famous denim ? Thinking of buying a pair or two from America. What cut is most similar to APC NS ?

Probably the weird guy fit, I'd say, it's quite wide at the top, tapers a fair bit though, probably more than NS. I sized down one, because mine stretched a bit in the waist.

So I talked to a guy in the APC store (NY) about the butler jeans, he said they need to be very worn, trashed is good and rips and stuff don't necessarily matter but basically they don't want them to be washed too many times as they want good contrasty fades (the guy said machine washed less than 5 times max probably)

Yeah I think they do. The US prices for N&F; are pretty cheap aswell for the quality/variety of styles/weaves/colours. Thinking from ordering from here as the do free international shipping for orders over 200USD. http://www.blueowl.us/

ah my bad, thought you were going to america. Yeah the price is ok on them but good luck avoiding import tax.

By cheap I meant unbranded go for less than 50 bucks and are quite nice

On my APC rescues, the arse has started to bulge out and looks like I've shit myself, even when worn without any sag. How is this rectified by a tailor?

You make black dye from a concentration of green or blue.
