are their jeans really that bad? got a pair of the max used cash (for $160) and they're a little stretchier than I normally go for, but the fit is pretty good.
Don't want to keep them though if the jeans are just gonna fall apart in a year.
the only issues i've heard of when dealing with acne jeans are:
crotch blow outs on the raw denim
the jeans are cut off grain and wrap around the leg instead of falling straight
crotch blow outs are due to the le denim head fags not washing their nasty ass jeans
the off grain cut is not excusable and should not be an issue at this price point and definitely are a red flag for me
My favorite blue jeans are my Mic Rigid (29). I've had them for three years and no issues. Crotch space is a bit tight, but you get used to it. Don't do anything stupid in them as the added pressure may result in tears, but I commute via cycling and have no damage. Fit is really nice though
yeah crotch blowout and stretching seem to be the biggest issues people have with APC and acne jeans, but that only really can happen if they're way too small and you aren't washing them. I bought my actual size and definetely will wash so neither should be an issue.
sweet I'm keeping them.
got a lightly used pair at buffalo exchange for $30 and I like them a lot for $30. would not buy a full price pair, nor would i advise anybody to. like >>10813749 said, fit is great but quality is not A+
Anyone know about Max Cash/ Ace Cash / Thin Stay Cash and whatever which is the best bang for buck/quality and longevity-wise?
Also which is the best for normal thighs but slightly muscular calves
what the fuck does off grain cut even mean? can you explain in depth to me what this means because i have 2 pairs of acnes (one of which i have owned for nearly 2 years) , i've had no issues but now im worried i got rused
i have ace cash and thin stay cash. Basically, cash is the colour (black) and stay cash basically means the blackness of the jean will maintain itself and keep its colour much better than the regular cash colour. Im a tall hungry skele so personally i like the fit of thins eons more but ace cash would be better for stubby manlets much like half of this board
they're not that bad.
if you're a jeans snob who cares a lot about the quality of the fabric, acne isn't extraordinary. but i own acne jeans bc their pin cut (women's high waisted skinny) works perfectly for me, i liked the color/wash, and the back pockets are unbranded.
they're definitely not going to fall apart in a year unless you do some seriously fucked up shit with your clothing. i've had h&m jeans last me a year with nearly daily wear desu. if you don't have intense crotch/inner thigh/knee friction you'll be fine.
nice to see a girls input on these. I just copped the skin 5 in used black and I get baggy knee caps when wearing them. does this happen to you? they fit nicely everywhere else besides the knees. I'm guessing I should have sized down maybe
he never said 1 year is excellent you moron. He was just addressing OPs original concern of them falling apart in a year. This board man, i swear...
Also i don't think you know what a barometer is.
anon was just responding to op's comment of
>Don't want to keep them though if the jeans are just gonna fall apart in a year.
anon literally just said
>they're not that bad.
sieg if u want to troll u gotta do better than this familia
okay essentially when you cut fabric you have it in plies (layers)
to cut a pair of jeans for mass production they take the plies and lay them flat in the same direction, and top it off with a paper that is the marker (a placement chart essentially that has all the pattern pieces in the most efficient way)
the marker has to be placed in the correct angle to follow the grainline (the direction of the fabric)
they most likely have a computer programmed cutting machine that follows a data version of the marker to cut through all of the layers
the problem in this process, and is apparent with heavy fabrics like denim, as well as knit fabrics, is that the bottom layers of fabric might have shifted during the setup, and the pieces for a pair of jeans may be off grain
when the offgrain pieces are sewn together, the seams will twist
on a pair of jeans, it is noticeable when the inseam goes from your thigh and starts curving towards the center of your shin
this means the quality control is garbage because this easily visible error made it from a factory to a retail setting
haha yes. i feel like it's hard to avoid this with skinny jeans though? your knees are always going to make the fabric looser there and it'll always look awkward if the calves are very tight. i did shrink my jeans in the dryer after a month of wearing them and it helped
used black crewwwwwww
i find it much easier to style than a straight-up black
i have 3 pairs of apcs and 5 pairs of acnes
i like the apcs more because of the lack of elastane.
3 of my acnes with high cotton percentage (98%) are my favourite fit. the ones with 95% cotton and less stretch out way too much for my liking and feel like cheap jeggings.
rip my aces. lasted for 2 years until the crotch are started tearing to every direction. anyways, probably the best jeans i've owned looks wise, the durability just could be better.
200$ for made in albania or portugal garbage that will fall apart in 1-2 years
do yourself a favor and get levis 510s, the denim and quality control arent any worse and you arent getting fucked out of 200$ by some swedish kike fucks
Acne Ace are the best fitting jeans I've ever owned.
I've got five pairs in total, latest pair is the Ace Raw (not pictured).
Not sure what the talk about crotch blowouts and stretching is all about. Mine are all fine and I wash them about once every two months.
Also in regards to sizing I've sized up to a 32 waist. I'm normally a 30/34, but with a 32/34 they're not super skin tight but remain skinny and comfortable.
Pic related my ace stay cash in 32/34.
I'm 6'4 160lbs.
They're degenerates and should take interest in personal hygiene.
If you wash them at 30 degrees and use suitable detergent for the colour of your jeans they last for ages.
My Ace Cash started faded and I re-dyed them with a pack of Velvet Black Dylon and they look almost like new.
I've got em in grey. Stay tts here too. If anything mine have shrunk ever so slightly in the wash. The material is weaker than Cash. My interior pockets ripped on both sides within a year :/
Color is amazing tho mad complimentos
Shut up Sieg you fat fuck. I'm surprised they make fashionable jeans in your size.
I'm stupid and the idea of washing clothes very rarely is strange to me. Talking about crotch blow outs and whatnot, the problem seems to be not washing them enough.
Would there any be problems in washing them too often, besides possible fading? My problem is I don't have many pairs of jeans so I would have to wash them more often. Like once every 2 weeks or so.
sorry for stupid question, I don't know what I'm doing especially when it comes to "raw denim"
Washing your clothes fairly often is a sensible and hygienic thing to do.
With raw denim people like to not wash them for months (even years) at a time because it helps the denim to develop a unique patina. If you wash them more often they'll just have a even fade rather than one with pronounced wear marks. Pic related.
I'm probably going to go with full black anyways and although a patina would be cool, I'd probably start smelling like shit. I feel like I'm missing something here.
Anyways, thank you very much for the response
the point of not washing raw denim is for the wearer to go months adding personal aspects to their jeans, such as stress on the fabric from movement as well as sun bleaching
done correctly, you first wash will look like a completely new pair of jeans, nothing like the original wash
personally, i think it's completely asinine to pay more, which raw denim usually is, for the manufacturer to do less work on treatment of the fabric just for it to be an "original wash"
just get regular all black jeans
raw denim and selvage denim are for consumers who fell for marketing ploys, as the average consumer knows nothing of fabric structure and cannot truly tell what an exceptional fabric is
(last part is mainly a dig at the muh selvage denim boys)
probably didn't state it well but my point being, raw and selvage denim are not indicators of quality, the same goes for price points
doesn't mean that there is no high quality raw denim or selvage denim, or denim sold at a high price point
it's just not something you should rely on as a consumer
in the industry, selvage denim always means higher production cost because of a higher fabric yield for the patterns
the quality isn't guaranteed
that's literally workwear level
I agree it's mostly the entry level raw denim that fall in that category. I only wear my 21oz denim to work cause I don't want to ruin my nice clothes and it gets cold so I wear them there every day
they sell both regular( sanforized ) jeans as well as raw
not sure if they have selvage denim, another anon might know that
not a fan of acne's jeans but i understand the interest
construction of the pants themselves?
take kirkland clothes, for example a white tee
definitely not the most luxurious fabric you'll ever touch
but the construction of the shirt itself undergoes rigorous quality control because the volume of units is so high, they don't want returns
the pima cotton tees from kirkland are better than uniqlos, in terms of construction
fabric quality and construction are both key to a good product
i bounced around your question a lot but i hope i answered it
Most of the Acne jeans are washed styles and each one comes with its care label in regards to colour-fastness, fading, wear time, washing cycle etc.
For example the Ace Stay Cash is black denim treated with an anti-fade chemical so they stay jet black when washed. Whereas the Ace Cash are blue jeans overdyed black which fade with blue/grey wear marks.
My Acne Raw jeans are made in Italy and constructed from Japanese denim. They're not selvedge, but that was just a marketing ploy which hipsters fell for a few years ago when raw denim was all the rage.
for that price point
Rag & Bone and Diesel are two brands that i have never seen any construction issues with, at all
been to the AG Jeans factory
their quality control is so insane since everything is done in factory except the purchase of the denim
i just don't like the fit of ag jeans because of how skinny i am
if anyone else has anything to add to this, that'd be great
Probably because the sales been on for 2 weeks and you've missed out on all the good stuff you degenerate.
I copped a pair of Ace Raw 40% off from End in a 30/34 a few weeks ago.
