I might taper mine more. I had it down bit the lady really didn't do much. Thinking of making the leg opening 7.5 but don't know what to do from the knee down? What is a popular width for good cuts of denim from the knee-down? 7 3/4? Any helps appreciated.

I'm guessing the tailor would know but I guess its better for you to know. Because when I had mine tapered, he just tapered 7 from knee down lol, which is kinda tight for my taste but I guess 7 3/4 is good

^ Logikal, what size are your tapered joints?

And what length?


I'm thinking of hemming and then tapering mine. I measured the leg opening and it was 7", but that's not possible, 'cause shit swallows my shoe, lol.

This might have been asked already but is it better to go tts or size down on the tapered fit? And if its better to size down how many sizes? Thanks in advance.

Mine are a 32 and the Leg Opening is 7.75. Tapering to a 7.5 from the leg opening up a few inches so my stacks are more together and not so pancakeish, lol.

Lol, for real.

For tapered joints, these have a pretty big leg opening.

Are you thinking of tapering more?


I'm thinking 7.5 and hemmed to a 32 length. Btw, do you know the inseam length?

No more than 7.5. Still want them to be able to sit on shoes and not tucked behind the tongue on every pair. That's pretty much equivalent to 19cm (7.4cool which is what I'm shooting for. Would have gone with the Skinny cut but my thighs and build is too big for those, nh.

Bringing them in Sat. Will probably get back in a week hopefully and I'll take pics. Hopefully I can get it right this time, if not...onto the next one.

Thinking of hemming to a 33, I'm 5'10-5'11, think I should keep the original length?

^ Haha, word.

I just don't wanna fuck up this pair, because this is my first pair and I'm broke.

You're pretty tall. 33 seems fine. Do you prefer stacks?

I'm 5 8 or 9 and I'm about 140 pounds. And my thighs are kinda skinny.

i bought the tapered fit in a sz36 because i needed a quick cheap raw denim. im not the elite in denim but i love the fit and i love the way they feel. i honestly hope they dont stretch to much because i have been wanting some raw denim that fit like this.. since it is made by naked and famous does this mean that the tapered fit is the same cut as the weird guys. if so i play on buying alot of the naked and famous denim. please let me know if the cut is the same. thanks

I got the Tapered fit in today! They're my first pair of selvedge denim and the kick ass!
I was skeptical at first because they looked really weird on me at first but after a few hours in walking in them, they look really good. The quality is amazing.
I'll post some fit pics once I find my Sony charger.

hey, so i just got my pair in today, i got true to size- 28, but they're reallly freaking tight in the waist. i really like the fit through the legs and all that but i cant even get the top button to button. idk if this is just a part of raw denim since this is my first pair, or if i should size up.
my next question is, how will they look if i size up? since the next size they carry is a 30, won't +2 look kinda weird?idk. any help?

What fit did you get & mind posting fit pics?
Still stuck between getting the tapered or skinny. Everyone keeps saying the tapered is actually pretty baggy (more than APC NS), and I am not looking for that. I like my denim to fit not too baggy but not skin tight, just slim. Think I may go with the 28' Skinny.

Thinking I will go with skinny considering the tapered fit doesnt really seem to have much of a taper. Just hope they arent to skinny when they show up to my door. Ordering 28', hope they dont stretch much.

What's your build? If you have athletic bigger thighs(nh), I'd stay away from the Skinny Cut. Then again, you said you're thinking of ordering a Sz. 28 so you're prob. just another teeny-tiny stick guy.

Yeah I am quite thin but not a huge fan of super tight denim anymore. From the pics on UO I would easily go w/ tapered but they seem very misleading (Tapered/Skinny seem to be baggier than pictured). This is what's leading me to go w/ skinny.

Just brought my tapered pair back to the tailor. Getting the leg opening tapered to a 7.5 and about 11 inches from the opening up through the leg to a 7.5. We'll see how it goes..
