The fact that the warp thread is gone in certain spots is a major indicator.

Patch it up before it gets worst. It should cost no more than $25 to get a quality patch work done.

I'd also recommend giving Brooklyn Clothing a call since a year ago they claimed to carry them too.
A heads up, if anyone is heading to Crome Yellow: I think it's either gone or relocated. I went to Gastown today to look for Momo jeans, and the Crome Yellow store was dark and there were random chairs strewn about the inside, and there weren't any clothes in the window. There was a paper sign in the window saying a new store is opening there, whose name I forget.

I called into Brooklyn and apparently they have the JBxMomo collab so I'll likely drop by once I finish exams.

Hey guys, denim noob here.
I recently replaced my old denims cuz crotch holes started appearing. I'm a big squatter so I have a ridiculously big ass and thigh so it's super difficult for me to find jeans. Also, when I do find a pair, I tend to wear it every day til it dies. So I never have a closet of jeans to choose from. Usually one to two max
My recent pairs were American Eagle Original Straight Dark Resin wash religiously worn for 2 years, 7FAM Bootcut New York Dark frequently worn for 4 years
So a few weeks ago I went out to shop for jeans, which is usually an unsuccessful task, and found Urban Outfitters was selling all jeans for $39! Went in and found a pair of Levi's 511 that I instantly fell in love with. Reason being: 1% spandex. I've never had jeans with spandex before but these feel great.

Now my question to you guys is where can I get another one of these jeans for sub $70?
Mandatory requirement for all my denim now is 1% spandex. Looking for very timeless/classic washes that will go easy with t shirt and a hoodie.

Levi's 511 is probably your best option.

if you get a good quality denim, the crotch issue won't be a problem. Take a look at N&F or even the unbranded denim online at blue owl.

Also, what kind of shoes do you guys wear with slimmer denim?

I have a pair of Nike AF1's but I think it's a bit too bulky. I have a pair of Vans authentics which are also too heavy/bulky.

Crotch issue will happen to all pair of jeans, it's just a matter of time. It's even more common with raw denim because of the lack of washing that occurs. So best bet is to wash your denim couple of times a year if you want them to last.

I posted in the last page of my immienent crotch blow here and yes they are N&F.

yep, the reason raw denim tends to blow out is because its so rigid. if you dont care too much about huge contrasting fades, you can make your jeans last longer by washing because it softens them up every time. honestly now that im getting older i dont really want my denim to look so extreme anymore. whenever i buy a new pair i cherish the dark denim look.

... how are Authentics too bulky? That's one of the slimmest sneakers around.

I wear boots, CP Achilles, Authentics, or Eras depending on the weather/how I feel. The authentic is definitely the least bulky shoe I own.

I guess you could try the Lo Pros

amen to that, I have been judging myself for having that thought ...

I have to confess I like the rich dark indigo look and raw rigid feeling over the well-detailed honey combs and whiskers ...

The denim I've had/have (in order):

N&F WG indigo (retired after 1 yr)
Imperial Dukes black (sold after 1yr)
APC NC indigo(retired after 1 year and 5 crotch rips)
Dior Homme MIJ 19cm indigo (sold almost immediately, needed a smaller size)

Dior Homme 17.5cm blue sheers (I wear these somewhat frequently. They're my all-time favourite raws/one-wash... albeit being a little tight now that I've started bulking up...)
APC PS black (rarely wear, but technically still in rotation)
APC PS indigo (sometimes wear)

damn, two jeans retired after a year... do you bike a lot? I just bought my first raws, APC NS couple days ago and I'd be sad if they blow out a year from now

My raw denim experience until now includes but is not limited to:

Nudie Slim Jim Dry Blue Japan or something like that - 6 months, didn't like the fit or color
APC NS - 1 year, didn't like how it stretched and lost shape after a bit.
Somet 008 - love these jeans, they have about 2.5 years of continuous wear right now.

My first pair of raw denim were N&F Natural Indigos. I wore them for about 13 months and now I wear them once every two weeks or so.
My next and current and probably last pair are Japan Blue x Momotaro 0100SP. I've been wearing them for 13 months.

I've worn these APCs NS for 3 days and they went from crotch grabbing skin tight, to saggy in the ass visible from the front... only sizing down 1 was a bad idea...
