    i have a couple pair,
    selvage levis 514
    naked & famous
    and a pair of apc new standards, that i'm on month 5 as of today.
    pics 3 months in

    looking to get a nice pair of jean shop or raleigh in oct/nov

    as for those 32oz naked and famous, barney's still has a couple pair here in sf i think. guy i talk with about denim calls them "collectors' jeans" because no one that buys them really ever wear them due to the amount of work that in involved in even breaking them in.

    i like the hots fashionzzzzzz, but being tall and skinny sucks as I can never find anything that fits.
    everything is too short. suggestions for jeans in long length like 36?

    Wow Eric, that's great! Interesting experiment/journey you have there with the Apc.

    I am planning on scoring an APC myself, any suggestion as to what line, model, or kind should I first try? I am comfy wearing a straight cut. Sometimes a little tapered or semi skinny would be awesome too.

    Lurker, there's a bunch of choices for long legged dudes like you on YJA, have you tried searching?

    Edwin is a nice Japanese brand, I heard.

    chad, Iron Hearts generally come in nothing shorter than a 36" length.

    i have a couple pairs of edwins and they both ripped pretty easily. probably wouldnt get another pair.

    Has anyone tried Fiber Ops? They come up on Jackthreads some times for reasonable prices.

    go with the New Standards, straight cut, the New Cure are a bit baggier. Sizing warning, for New Standards go down 1-2 sizes because the waist WILL stretch. i'm a 34 i bought 32 and after about a week they were perfect at the waist. New Cure is size 1 down, they are a bit stronger and stretch a lot less.

    This was a solid little documentary.
    Spend $10 and watch it work like I did.
