I love Levis it's all I wear. Is the Japanese stuff that much better? Never dabbled in it.

Not beefing but that fading is weak after a year, they just look like normal jeans been worn by a normal person and not worn and not washed to achieve epic fades. Nothing against them jeans, but they aint a fading project, even the denim chatters not good.

what's replaced the nudie begnt now then?

I totally agree mate, I wouldn't mind but I've worn the fuck out of them & I'm not careful with them at all.
After having a look at other forums, Cone Mills fades much more slowly with less contrast than Jap denim.
Which I don't mind as the colour coming out is really rich & I reckon they'll look alright in another 6 months.

Apcs are the only jeans that fade for me

Anyone know which jeans on the high street have a bigger rise and wider thigh? But still tapered?
I'm after a couple of pairs, light-wash and black on a budget.

ED-55s in the sale for £50-80? Hard to beat for the money.

yeah B i would say you have washed them way too many times, like Jordan said the whole lot has faded so thats why you haven't got very defined whiskers etc although i can see they're starting to come through and they will, eventually, look great. theres something to be said for these slow burners as opposed to the cheaper selvedge denim that is designed to fade quickly…the colours are always deeper and richer.
this is only my opinion but to me APC's are just toy denim. they fade super quickly to keep the buyer happy (i mean you see wrecked pairs with only 12 months wear….remember those pics of battered pairs Zoom had) because everyone wants dem fadez. I've had a pair of APC's and they faded very quickly and yeah they looked great until the crotch blew out, a belt loop came off and the hems were fucked.

thats why i would recommend pure blue! the demin is very good quality, the pockets dont fall to pieces they are very well made
but dam they fade fast, faster than APC but havent got any sign of crotch blow out yet they are expensive but a good fit similar to PS

Which model of pure blues are slim cut with a decent rise,.?.
& fade quickly?
23 Dec 2014 22:23
Just seen this Nick, yeah I think Jordan is right.
Did leave them 6 months before a soak, but I am liking them more and more as time goes on.
Can't grumble as they cost me 20 quid!
