View Full Version : What's your current denim rotation?

My current rotation involves only:
Average Joe Dry Heavy - I am still wearing them nonstop as they are taking forever to get any noticeable fades
I wear the Uniqlo S-001 greys depending on my outfit

I need to figure out how to rotate in the new RRDS and APC NS i have sitting in the closet.
and I ordered some SJDBC, will wear those occasionally depending on the outfit. Since they dont fade much , i dont have to worry about rocking them all the time.

What about you guys, what do you have and how do you rotate it?

Thats quite a rotation, I must say I'm jealous :-)

Right now all I have, and the only thing I wear, are my SJDG which will be a month old on the 6th. Its my first pair of Raw Denim and I'm loving it so I'm tempted to buy some more right now but I figured I'll wait until these are closer to done.

hero_,I think you are right to wait untill the current project is done you will get the better result .:mrgreen:

last week i have been wearing my grim tims dry dirt organics, so next week will be my average joe dry heavy. i rotate my nudies on a weekly basis. so in a month i usually wear 3-5 pairs of jeans on a weekly basis. oh yeah, not to forget, i wear my dry shrink to fit 501 as well. they are awesome jeans too.

This last month it's been Warehouse 660 Sufu ed. & Denim Demon Sarves. I've only worn Sarves twice though...

3rd December 2007, 09:22
right now the only pair i've been wearing are my sjc, but as soon as I get my sufu660 back from the tailor, they'll be in the rotation too.

Let's see...

RRDS Monday, Wednesday, Friday, for school, and then just in case I decide to go out that night.

RRDS Tuesday, Thursday, for studying in, I need something comfy.

And on the weekends, I like to dress up fancy and wear my RRDS.

At least i'm dedicated with one pair...i've got way to many pairs of dry denim.:oops:

3rd December 2007, 17:29
I have a lot of jeans and i try to wear them all depending on the outfit of course.

Regular Ralf Dry Greycast: 4-5 days a week, then laid to rest the other week to freshen up, especially when i've been wearing them while going to some club or bar and it smells like cigarettesmoke afterwards.

Regular Ralf Dry Selvage: same as above.

BlueOctoberFan
3rd December 2007, 18:29
At this point, I rotate based on temperature.

<55 or 60 degrees = Samurai S0110XJ
60 - 80 degrees = ALD Royal Selvage
80+ degrees = ALD Novelty 11oz.

So, now it's almost exclusively the Samurai unless I just choose to change it up a bit, but I'll be going on a Carribean cruise, so the Novelty's will be coming along for that.

zatoichi
3rd December 2007, 18:32
3 times a week my ALD frontier
4 times a week my RRDS.
Sometimes it depends though because when I wear a slim-fit shirt the ALD look abit weird.
When I go out I sometimes wear a pair of Diesels or PRPS but they aren't raw...

WoolyRHCP
3rd December 2007, 18:41
I rotate between my 5 nudies, 2 of them are still dry, 1 is washed, and i have 2 pre washes. Nudies i have are:
Even steven original selvage --- pre wash
Thin finn dry stretch --- dry 1 week
Regular ralf dry greycast --- washed 3 times after 9 months,
Slim jim black black --- washed
Slim jim dry greycast -- dry, with `1 dry clean after 6 months

I wear my slim jim and thin fnn the most now, the're still dry, and i wear the other 3 nudies when i feel like wearing them, and when it fits the outfit.

3rd December 2007, 20:01
My first post on this forum... I have been wearing my first pair of dry denim, Masa, non stop for about 3 months now. I got them in June, but the summer here was way too hot to wear them, lots of 90 and 100 degree days, and very humid, heavy air... Just wore my prewashed ESOS and a pair of prewashed RR through the summer. I want to get a pair of dry denim I can wear through next summer, maybe some RRDS or Atelier La Durance... But I need to wear my Masa's some more because they seem pretty hard to fade... not that I have anything to compare them to though...

BlueOctoberFan
3rd December 2007, 20:21
If you're looking for something to wear for 90+ degrees, I'd say the ALD 11oz Novelty is a good call. I have a pair, and wore them quite a bit while it was hotter. Also, the Frontier BB and Prescott Sterling are 12.5oz, and I think would still be servicable.

TiaKo
3rd December 2007, 20:31
I'm trying to rotate between 4 nudies but i can't seem to get around wearing every single one of them. I just wear the jeans i want to at a certain moment, not considering the amount of wear one has as opposed to another. Therefor i am mostly wearing my TFUIC at the moment, after that comes my Masa, then my TFDS and i have a SJDG laying around aswell..but i haven't been wearing those for while. The TFUIC is my current favourite..

JAY-T
3rd December 2007, 20:33
Wearing my RRDS almost two months now, for at least 5 days a week.. The other days i'm wearing my two year old RRDG, my RR Authentic Deluxe (a selvage which is pretty much a pre-washed version of a RRDS) or one of my others, not so important pre-washed Nudies..

And by the time my RRDS hase broken in, there's allready a brand new SSDS waiting very patiently in it's box :-)

I work in an office, so it's dress pants most of the time. However, SSDS 90% of the time I'm in jeans - after work, weekends, etc. The Svens are 10 months old now. I also have a pair of Levis Capital E Skinner rigid that are a bit easier to dress up for going out with the wife.

I just meant I won't be doing anymore contests or wearing raw denim every single day of my life and taking and posting pics and wavering over whether or not to wash and stuff.

I'll still wear them, probably still buy a pair here or there, but not more than I can wear, and continue to rotate in some not indigo denim pants.

By the way, is anyone else still planning to join that 811 contest?

It all changes when you can't wear blue jeans because of the job, right? Then you're glad to be able to wear them at least two hours a day :-P So sad...


@ haga: I asked, because I simply can't imagine any better options than raw denim for leisure. Going back to pre-washes or other pants is so pointless (ok, I'm exaggerating), but once you know the pleasures of a nice pair of denim, I think you develop a passion for a lifetime. Maybe naive, but I think so.

I used to be like you, and I still like raw denim for work most days, but to wear it all the time has become so monotonous to me, no matter how different CM and N&F and Samurai and Denime might be perceived to be from each other. I'm not going to (back) to scraped sandpapered torn up diesels and gstars or anything (though a nicely washed-out pair of APC or filippa k or acne might tempt at some point), but putting on a pair of linen or light cotton pants instead of raw denim on a 100 degree day (40C) is far from pointless.

No offense to anyone who still likes to rock their raw joints 24/7 of course. And I'll still try to make a last valiant stance with the 811XXX the next 2+ years before I fade away from the boards... Overplayed as the whole contest and world tour game might be.........

It seems that many of the "old" users here think like you, and I understand that contests and questions about washing after 5 months instead of the obligatory 6 months aren't that exciting for you as for someone who's new to dry denim. But if you still got the passion for it, it would be great to show up from time to time, show your progress on some jeans and let us participate on your knowledge. A forum, where only 16 years old show their brand new TFDOEE and then disappear until they ask after 2 months if the magical process will start if they wash them right now gets pretty boring :mrgreen:

(And yes, I agree on the linnen pants; there are some external influences you can't get rid of: job, weather etc. But it helps to remember the 6th denim commandment ;-))

I understand Mr.HaGa and I'm with him that contests and world tours don't have that strong appeal as they had years ago. It's quite normal and you have around 6 or more contests and world tours at the same time. Besides that, if you want to see how others life, there's the WAYJDT-thread. Kinda a world tour for everyone...
The strongest attraction for a contest is just the chance to get something unique and customized

25th August 2010, 10:19
I think especially in Japan most of them just wear them and don't talk that much about it. But IIRC there are also some Japanese forums of which we aren't aware of.

And yeah, guys like Mr.HaGa, Tiro and the like might lost the passion of chatting about dry denim and mostly come back to look for some new cuts/denim/brands and to quickly educate theirselves what size they would need if they are interested. They've surely chatted enough about washing/cleaning/sizing of others...

Haha, I've tried in the past - but they don't like their pictures on the internet...
My bro's AIKA jeans are coming along nicely when I saw him last week; maybe I can convince him later down the track to let me take a few photographs.

Some useful contribution to the thread:
My current rotation is -
ROY's 5-pc standard (85% of the time; they are simply amazing...)
Real Japan Blues 66bspbk (5%; only when my Cat's Paw work pants are drying and I walk around the hospital hoping people don't notice that they're actually jeans :P)
Sugar Cane sc40300 (5%; for lazy Sunday afternoons)
Wrangler Japanese Blue Bells m-1112 (5%; for manual labour and when Melbourne's shitty weather chucks a tantrum)

I've got the impression, that in germany some people, who aren't denim freaks, buy raw jeans because of their price or because they like the look of a non-distressed jeans. But I honestly almost never see people with nice faded or worn-in pairs. That makes me think, that the whole passion for fading gets supported by the internet at first.
Of course, each one of us would buy and wear raw denim they way we do anyway, because we developped a passion for it, but it has to start somehow. And I didn't get the input from my friends or from anybody I see on the streets (maybe that's different in japan?). For me, I got hooked up by an article about nudie jeans in a magazine and after buying a pre-wash Nudie the booklet told me the whole concept. Further research brought my to mynudies and to the whole japanese thing, what was completely unknown to me then.

What i want to say: the Internet can get your passion started and supports it nicely (in our regions), but it's nothing that happens only because of and for the web. The fun is to wear your jeans, wether if it is for a contest or not. The winner is he, who has the most fun while doing it.

And on-Topic: "my rotation":

Momotaro 0201


And btw: I hope that this gets the approbriate attention:
Besides that, if you want to see how others life, there's the WAYJDT-thread. Kinda a world tour for everyone...

@maxpower I would say the internet DID get me started. Believe it or not though I play lacrosse (I hope it was obvious), and when I first started I joined a lacrosse forum to buy/sell/trade. For there on, sometime last July? I saw a thread on raw denim. I wanted to purchase a pair, but didn't have the money then one day, I found a pair of GTDBS in marshalls (true story). From there on it just took off, and I just joined mynudies in June cause I saw they had some wonderful topics, and extremely cheap nudie's in the FS section. Well, that is my story.

And I am wearing in rotation Grim Tim Dry Black Selvage (different than the first pair I got), Slacker Jack's, and APC NS I just got yesterday. Those are the only jeans I am wearing now, mainly the APC's 4-6 days out of the week.

Denime XX-type 85% of the time. Falling more and more in love with the denim! Great stuff!

PBJ xx-005BK 5% of the time. Love the denim, but sized wrongly on these. :(

Eternal 811 10% of the time. Great cut and denim, worn for the better part of 2 years so they are taking a break.... For now. :)

Line-up for Autumn so far...

Oni 1001-HM (45% of the time; texture/construction is really unique, starch soak is giving nice creases)
SDA Clipper (45%; really amazing 'jungle' denim, but doesn't crease easily)
Wrangler Japanese BB m-1112 (5%; still my beater pants, fading in slowly)
RJB 66bspbk (5%; still my hospital pretend work-pants)

* Warehouse x Sufu x BiG 660 after hanging in the closet for about 3 years!
* RRDS, still love the cut and it's nice to alternate between these two different cuts

+ IHxB01 od when they are ready somewhere in 2011. My next black pair.

That's more than enough denim for some time.

I only wore them for a week or two in total so no fading whatsoever, it's just the creases being set. When I got them from BiG back in 2007 I gave them a machine wash, hung them dry and put them in my closet. I never had the time to wear them up until recently. Still need to make some pics for evo purposes though. You also have these btw?

not sure, i don't think the quality of the denim is going to be much of a factor in my decision making. cuts i was considering were either the BC Starcy, RR or TLJ but who knows...

it's definitely too tight for my thighs/calves too, but i was thinking about sizing up one. i did that with my a77 joeys (got a 32 even though the site advised to size down 2 to account for huge waist) but post-weight loss it looks quite silly on me now, haha.

you're right with the TF though, that might be a better option... though if i went with TF i would like to have the dry comfort.

i just can't cry for much quality with nudie since i know what i'm getting, and i do have my 811s which blow me away :p

Sad but true, I stick with them for their cuts, otherwise the TFOEE denim leaves much to be desired :( Dry comforts would be a good choice ;-)

yup, TF cut is so spot on... wish my current TFs fit me right, but I'm kinda hesistant in buying the same model (tho another size)

Was mainly wearing my APC's with the odd day of my TFDBC, whilst my SJDBT did nothing waiting to be washed.
Now that I've washed my SJ I think my rotation will be:
45% APC, 45% SJ and 10% TF. Summers coming though and it may start becoming too hot for jeans.

mikesteez
11th October 2010, 22:30
The lowered yoke on the TFDS got me to size up one since the legs are so slim.. definitely a fan of sagging them to get more stacking. My legs got a lot smaller in the few months after getting them though so now I regret going up an inch :/ mine had more of an all over fade on the denim instead of streaking and whiskering after a year of hard wear and 3 washes

I'm wearing:

Pure Blue Japan XX-011, size 31
Samurai S0500x, size 31

I'm probably going to be wearing just these two pairs for the next few years. They give me great variety since the PBJs are slim, low-rise, and modern, while the Samurais are a straight fit and classic-looking. The denim is totally different as well, and more pairs would make it impossible for me to get any good wear on what I've already got. I sold all my Nudies because A) Japanese used clothes shops pay way too much for them, and B) I got tired of wearing such tight jeans; PBJs are a much better slim/skinny fit.

The only thing that would change my mind is if someone starts getting Flat Head 3001s, 3009s, or F310s in a long inseam length. That would be tempting.

No worries. I'll keep go rocking my raw denim stuff untill nothing has left on them.
And then they'll be ready to rest in peace in the Jeansmuseum.
The only point is, that I have to downgrade them soon as my second or third class work pants and denim jacket.
Because I'm afraid, my office friends and my boss will soon kill me, if I still wear those pretty rough items at work.

Tomorrow my skiing holidays are over. I really have to downgrade my old pants and denim jackets since they are falling apart more and more. The left knee is just ready now for a heavy blow out explosion every minute. But they're still fighting against their death

My next step could be IH 25 oz or Strike Gold 23 oz pants and the IH blanket lined jacket or the black uinlined IH jacket.

This in case the Samurai contest will be delayed much longer

30th October 2012, 02:02
I'm probably going to only wear my Samurai 710s until next April or May (cold weather lasts a long, long time here.) So far, I'm loving 'em! These things are rough as heck, but I always wear long underwear beneath so they're fairly comfortable now. My goal is to avoid washing for as long as possible and avoid the washed-out gray color that so many 710s become...

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep wearing my Flat Head BSPs next year - I love the denim, but the cut pisses me off. I'm sick of wearing jeans that are supposed to be a slim taper and wind up strangling my lower thigh. The perfect cut of the 710 has totally spoiled me. I might sell these and get some Eternal 811BGs next year, since Eternal's denim is virtually the same as FH but the cut's similar to the 710.

IIIrd Icon
30th October 2012, 10:34
actually, not really_ in both counts. 811 is a straight cut & does not have the taper of the 710.
the cut is more like the Kapital Cisco or Samurai 500, with bigger hems & a bit generous @the thighs.
also, the denim is quite different from FH.

judging from your fit pix, i don't think 811s are to your liking.

Cold Summer
30th October 2012, 14:40
Really? Checking the measurements of my 710s against BIG's measurements of the one-wash 811BG, they look really similar. My 710's 12" in the thigh, 8.5" in the knee, about 7.7" in the hem - almost the same as the 811, only real difference seems to be the hem, which is slightly bigger at 8" on the Eternals. The rise is pretty much identical, too. As long as the upper thigh's not bigger than 12" and the hem's 7.5-8", I ought to be okay. The only potential problems would be if the 811s were really stretchy or there was some other measurement I'm missing.

My 710s are not a super-slim cut on me, they're way looser than my BSPs. It's just not immediately obvious because I'm really tall and everything looks deceptively slim on me.

I thought I read somewhere before that Eternal and Flat Head's denim was made in the same mill. Either way, it's the only other denim I can think of that stays dark and has that vertical fade and turquiose sort of color. The PBJ XX-009 is also one I'm considering - not that it matters since I'll be in the 710s for many months.

Those pictures are pretty helpful.

I wouldn't mind something a little bit looser in the leg than my 710s. I used to have some S0500xx in the same size as my current S710 (size 31), but they were a little too loose. Most of the leg was good, the problem was the upper thigh, which made the crotch look saggy. They were about 12.25-5" in the top thigh, while the Eternal in size 31 is supposed to be 12, about the same as my S710.

You can see the loose thigh/crotch problem here:

also, denim stretches down the line.

peeps are known to size down on the 500s to get a slimmer fit.
i'm normally a W33 [as in the fit photo], but i couldve surely sized 1 down.
other than that__ prolly not the right cut for you [that you'd prefer, ie].
