Damn their regular indigo really doesn't fade. I wore mine for a year and noticed barely any difference and decided to get a pair of APC's instead :P

I had a cut that was 2/3 that length and I just stitched it up myself. Held up for another few months before I retired the pair (and it's still holding up). What I found out (i have 4 rips in the crotch for my APC's) is that it's really hard to notice the crotch fix, so doesn't really matter if it's not stitched up perfectly.

Does Albert's Tailor in DT do repairs? they're pretty reputable from what I hear.

Second Narrow: Perfect Jeans, Made in Japan, Water Resistant by Jordan Caron ? Kickstarter
the water resistant nature is via a coating?
so it's similar to a normal person applying scotchguard to the material.

too many denim labels using kickstarter to feed their initial material purchase. It would be great if they were using a true technical fabric in trendy design similar to Arc'Teryx Veilance

TIA
Yes u can definitely do that at Albert's. I have a pair of dior 19cm and 21cm altered to my liking. Leg opening is now 6.25", basically the whole legs are tapered from knee up.

That size is definitely repairable. Usually most asian alteration/repair store can do it. I wouldn't throw out those nudies yet.

^ sorry for the bump but how much did you pay to get your jeans patched up? My jeans has a hole that's a little smaller than a penny that is starting to form, and I wanna get it patched up before it gets worse.

Also, I'm selling a pair of APC PS sz 28 if anyone's interested. I've worn it a couple of times inside the house, but unfortunately the calves are way too tight for me. PM me if anyone is interested!

Anyone ever starch sprayed your jeans? If so, how did it go/what is the process/explain!

I lost a bit of weight since I started wearing my N&F and after a couple washes etc, they are still loose all over and as a result, I haven't been able to get many fades at all over the long duration of wearing them...

Went to Oakridge Tailor today, the guy turned me away saying he won't work with raw denim anymore unless its been washed just prior to being brought in. Going to freeze my N&F for a few days and then bring them to him.

My wife just got her Rock & Republic jeans repaired at Metropolis Alterations (inside Metrotown) recently. I think she paid around $25 to get them done. It sounds like that might be a lot but they did a great job imo. They would need to see the inside of the jeans first though and the pricing varies depending on the condition.
