ALL about JEans

I know about Viktor jeans in Greenbelt  (and heard good and bad reviews) but is there anywhere or anyone else to get great fitting custom made jeans made?

Try kostureras :) I would even recommend my classmate because she does so well with our sewing projects, pero she's just 20 years old and too busy. Hehe

Best if you source your fabric yourself. Ilaya and Azcarraga in Manila are great places to find cheap fabrics, but you have to get along with adventure.
Carolina's and The Fabric Warehouse plus other fabric stores also sell denim, but they don't have much variety and they're usually expensive.

There are a lot of denim shops around who can customize jeans for you. Years back, this was what I did all the time, it's hard for me to find a really good pair kase na tama lang yung fit and length.

Sa may Marcos hiway before, may pinagpapagawaan ako. 200 lang mind you ah but their materials are quite limited so if I wanted something that they didnt have, naga-add ako ng 150 for the material. I brought pics lang of the styles that I wanted.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

You can try defacto industry sis. http://defactory.multiply.com/ . You can also try crazy horse jeans if you are in manila area. They were featured in countless tv shows way back. They are the pioneers when it comes to custom made jeans. Rissa Mananquil even went there before and got herself a pair. P300 will get you a nice pair. You can even have it customize to your liking. Enjoy!

Thanks for the info Sises. I've been jeans hunting for the perfect fit for almost 2 months now and I cant find anything in the stores. Cant wait to get some made!

I already contacted Defacto I'll go to their shop next week. Does anyone know the contact details for Crazy Horse Jeans and Kostureras?

3. HOw many jeans do you have
4. What are your favorite brand ( in order)
5. slim, bootcut?, straight?

im a jeans and shirt kinda gal so i wear jeans all the time. ive gotten rid of my older jeans coz they dont fit me anymore, i have 2 kids now so ive gained weight!  ;D so my oldest is probably my 2 year old jeans from topshop.

i have tons of jeans coz like i said, i wear them all the time. cant count them anymore.

my fave brand is 7 for all mankind but i do really like topshop as well.

i like skinny jeans and bootcut.

i pair it with platforms, wedges, havs (when im just going to the mall).

I love wearing jeans (and shorts also) when i go out. I'm most comfortable wearing them than skirts.. so far ang ginagamit is 5 pairs :D i have 4 pa na hindi sinusuot kasi di na kasya. I like Lee/Lee Pipes or Jagthug yun lang kasi pinakamagandang fit for me. Hirap kasi humanap sa iba, hindi magkasya sa hips ko :D but i want to try Mango though, like ko rin style ng guess jeans but it's tooooo expensive. I wear jeans with flats, pumps, sneakers and flipflops  ;D

I just love skinny jeans. I think they're especially made for my body/leg type. Before, I opt for Jag and Lee jeans, Penshoppe too at times. But now I'm not that particular with brands anymore...basta maganda yung fit, buy na!
In the end, everything's gonna be okay. If it's not yet okay, then it's not yet the end.

XOXO,

I wear jeans once a week in the office. Wash day Fridays and when I go malling on weekends.My oldest wearable jeans is 4 years old and yes! it still fits me a like a T.its a Levis bootcut ..well maybe because I have 6 to 7 jeans which I wear interchangibly that's why the 4 year old levis is still alive.French Connection, Levis, Mango and Gap...Bootcut, straight and skinny jeans goes well with heels, wedges, sneakers and havs
