So Unbrandeds are only located at Plenty and UO?
Also, is one suppose to size down with Raws because I heard they stretch since you're not suppose to wash them...

I wanna try my first pair of entry-level raws and see it feels before going higher...

I only know of UO and Plenty selling them. Other places might, not sure.

And the sizing is up to your personal preference.
If you get a tight fit, it will stretch. But after you wash it, it will shrink back to its original size.
Same goes for a perfect fit. It will stretch, but after the wash it'll return to its original size.

Unbranded can be found at UO and Plenty. You can also find it at some other stores as well. Make sure to try it on before you buy it, the fit will be uncomfortable at first but it will stretch after a week or two.

Didn't want to start a new thread, since there are a few car guys here might as well ask here. How the fuck do you get tire stains off your jeans? was changing my tires and got a little bit of grease on my rocks :/

This, I asked 'em and they said they're on clearance. Sale section in UO = clusterfuck.

That said, Plen+y eh, I'll have a look, I really want some tapered black right now

^Nudies? I kinda want to buy a pair but not sure if I would look good in slim jeans... Also, they're not really the "japanese" raw denim that everyone says is such good quality.

How much were they btw?

^^ Go to the bottom floor, mens wear, and on the right side where the "honeycomb shelves" you'll find the Nudies jeans.

The pair I picked up to see the quality was priced at $160CDN... uummmm...is that reasonable??

to be honest i thought i would look like a flaming homo in slim jeans too. get something that fits...i got the average joe and they fit me perfectly. a nice pair of fitting jeans definitely makes you look less like a slob

and fuck rock and republic, true religion and all that LA crap...its getting old. ill wear mine at the odd times (bought maybe 2-3 years ago?) for the sake of wearing something but i am aware how douchebag they look

^ Wouldn't hurt to try em on. Price varies depending on what fit you're looking for slim jims, thin finn, etc.

They usually start at 179+ depending on where you go... Although they generally go up to around $200.

When I was in SF I stopped by the UO their and they also said any unbranded denim they had left would be in the sale section... it was a gong show and even after digging through piles I was unable to find any Unbranded denim...

Will check out plen+y when I have some time...

Did you check out Old Navy maybe?

If you want to see how Unbranded fades check out this guys blog:
http://www.withoutwash.com/

They seem to take a longer to fade than my NFs which I am thinking due to the 14.5 weight of Unbranded vs. 13.5 of my NFs. But all the details are there, chain stitching at the hem and waist and it even has hidden rivets for the back pockets. Something my NFs didnt even have. Even if they suck, I still only paid $20. The only unfortunate thing for me was what I mentioned above, one of the rivets popped from the coin pocket.

I am not sure if I would pay retail on Unbranded though, when you can pay a bit more and get some NFs. Especially with the amount of time you"ll be spending in them.

that's very reasonable, most pairs i've seen at holts go for at least $200. i'm actually quite surprised you found a pair for $160

when someone's found out whether or not the metrotown/downtown/richmond location for plenty carries the unbranded denim, lemme know... tell me which location too... i don't want to waste time going there when there isn't any.

I have 3 pairs of nudies, 1 is raw denim that I haven't washed in a little over a year, pretty funny has a fade in the shape of my iphone in the front. 1 is a coated black one which is a blue Raw denim underneath (My friend washed his turned blue haha), and 3rd is a pair of skinny non-raw denim IIRC and these ones I managed to tear a hole through the knees in less than a month, they were the most expensive ones I bought too @ $250 before tax :'( and they looked the best wash-wise

Don't feel like browing the other pages, where can I get N&F? I know El Kartel has some but they ran out of my size.

same thing happened to a friend of mine, all of the size 29s and 30s were gone and the 31-33s were all on sale... its cus el kartel sells em cheap

there's dutil, holts, times profile shop, and some guy that sells em locally and delivers to your house, someone else here will fill u in... i also remember a guy selling a pair on here cus he ended up buying a size too small and i'm pretty sure that pairs barely worn...
