Not really going for the gothninja look, but how could I make myself something like this? I would just use a blanket but I want some really wide-cut sleeves on it as well.

>>9119138

Just buy some fabric and wear it lol

>>9119101
you can just use black shoe polish with them and use a lighter to heat the polish when you apply it

for the rubber heel you need to take it to the cobbler

I haven't found a single decent fit at the stores I've been to, so I sewed some of my old jeans a little thinner. Still not perfect, but definitely the best fit I have.

Where the hell can I get more jeans? And even if I get the legs right, how do I control for a good crotch region? most of my jeans show a giant awkward dick-shaped bulge
>>
Whenever I dye pieces I can never, ever actually get them black. I use salt/vinegar depending on the fabric and I've even tried just letting them air dry with the dye still in them but as soon as they dry it gets to that half assed purple colour.

I've had some pleasant surprises, a cosby sweater I dyed looks pretty nice along with a few other things. But right now I've dyed a light grey hoodie twice now and it's still just a really crappy purple.

Does RIT dye just suck or what?
>>
>>9119542

Some things just don't retain dye well. You should also attempt dying things progressively darker in stages, not just one attempt. So if you had something grey, dye it blue, then navy, then dark purple, then black. I find this works best.

How to distress jeans and overall make them not so fucking tight in the legs so that when I bend my legs they don't cut off circulation

For some reason Levi's 510s in Rigid Dragon wash are rough and never fuckin soften up. They're super super tight compared to my other 510s.

I don't know what to do. Bending my legs literally cuts off circulation, and I'm a skinny mofo.

I'm thinking that cutting the knees will solve this problem

Also, I have not washed these jeans since I got them, and washed them only once

What? There is no guide to dyeing things. You dip them in dye like you would any other garment of clothing. If you don't know how to dye, use google. No one on /fa/ is going to give you a step by step guide on how to stick something in black coloring.

>Does RIT dye just suck or what?

Nope, not from my experience. Been dyeing jeans black for ages using the stovetop method with awesome results. It's super easy.

1. Soak jeans in bucket of warm water.
2. Boil three gallons of water in a big pot.
3. Add three bottles of black Rit Dye Liquid in pot. (It's better than the powder version.)
4. Stir for 5 minutes.
5. Remove jeans from bucket. Wring excess water, then add jeans to boiling pot.
6. Stir for 10 minutes.
7. Add 1 cup of salt and 1 tablespoon of laundry detergent.
8. Stir jeans every few minutes for one hour. Make sure it stays completely submerged and the water stays boiling hot.
9. Afterwards, throw jeans in washing machine. Cold wash with 1 cup of vinegar (this helps set the dye, especially with the stitching which is usually nylon and not cotton). Then air dry.

Dunno about the quality of those pants these days but I have a pair that's like 7 years old or something that I still use of Analog's Dylan pants.
Probably the oldest piece of clothing I own that I bought myself at the moment.

Thank you very much for your answer.

I don't know if I am that stupid but in that site I can't see where can I buy it. It is out of stock or I am that dumb?

Can you post a fit with it? I know how they fit them but I am always reluctant buying stuff because it looks good on handsome people.

Sorry, it's out of stock. They stopped making those jeans years ago. They're very rare. Every now and then they'll show up on eBay (if you're lucky, and I mean super lucky).
>>
>>9124355
>Can you post a fit with it? I know how they fit them but I am always reluctant buying stuff because it looks good on handsome people.
I can do that tomorrow if the thread is still up, they are kinda on the baggier side though, the model has changed with times and like I said I've had them for a long ass time so they have really stretched out and worn, though that's also why they are probably the most comfortable pants I own at the moment as well.
>>
>>9124488
How do these run? I am a big dude and can probably find a 34/36 quickly and they look dope.
I have a ~36.5 inch waist and some huge ass legs what would you suggest?
>>
>>9124550
True to size, I have 32 it seems but I could use 31s
Though like I said, these are old as fuck so I don't know if Analog changed the sizing or models over the years.
>>
>>9124550
>>9124560
Tried them on and I would say even the old ass model of mine is definitely slim, considering how much use these had and I basically could afford having one size smaller (31 is what I usually wear) they must have been.
>>
>>9124560

I have big thighs, is this a no go?
>>
>>9124578
Fuck man I'm not a expert by any means but I'd say go for it, from the pics they seem roomy enough and the 1% stretch gives you something to work with as well.
>>
>>9124589
True that, thanks for the info
>>
>>9124488

That's what I thought.

From the pictures I have seen of the pants, they look much more baggy that what Dylan currently uses. Are you sure that he wears that Analog pants? Maybe they are just a random model that they put his name just to sell.
>>
>>9124639
Really hard to say, the pants do have some details that would give them away but it's lot of times impossible to see from his pics. But those sponsors aren't for nothing I'm sure he used them at least back when he was with Analog.
This pic for example, he is rocking them the weird ass detail on the inner thigh gives it away. The pants have some other details like that as well, I think they were made to sorta naturally 'turn' when you wear them so when you skate with them they never really feel like they get in the way or limit your movement.
>>
>>9122222
NICE QUINTS
also is that actually a rit-dyed fleck parka?
that's fucking cool
>>
>>9124695
Oh yeah the pic
Also here's a clear pic of the weird detail stitching on the inner thigh on a more lighter model:

>>
>>9124708
Also found this, I think I can make out the stitching here as well.
I was actually kinda bummed Analog doesn't do skate shit anymore, like I said, the pair I own are probably the most comfortable pants I have.

Been looking for a size 28 for ages. No luck. :(

I have 7 pairs of Dylan Jeans (2 Inks, 2 Medium Inks, and 3 Indigos which I've dyed black). They're great jeans. Something about their softness and weight makes it seem like you're wearing comfy slacks. They're very durable though. I skate with them so they take a lot of abuse. Love the reinforced hems and extra pockets

Here's the inside of a trouser leg that's currently undergoing alteration. These are from VV ($3.46 USD). I have a vintage 60s era Nordstrom camel coat that I'll likely pair these with. Converse ox light for footwear.

All told, I might have done well over 60+ modifications like these. I'll upload finished project Friday

>>
>>9125746
just fill up a bucket with bleach then dip the clothes in and hang out to dry. make sure you wear gloves and the smell of bleach will come out after 3 or 4 washes/wears. you can also do tie dye technique, get a paintbrush and paint the bleach on to get shapes, or splatter it. heaps of options dude i will defo do more in the future

Because it wasn't cotton it was unaffected.
You can also do this with other dark coloured cotton items but any colour other than black goes white.
Pic related the sleeve logo remained white bc it's white (probably got a clean as well) but for some reason the stitching stayed black
