I'm planning on getting the Samurai 710BK's.. however I cant find size 30s.. so would a size 31 be alright? And when I get them I'll soak them so the waist shrinks to a 29-30?
Jun 17, 2008 @ 18:22
Actually my flatheads are slimmer towards the leg opening than my new standards...

Edit: I want to sell my flatheads size 30 PM me...


jw, how much did you size down on your ns?

My True waist is 33, rock a 30 in APC NS.
Thinking about either getting New Cures or Imp Shearers. Size down 2 on both those?

Im a 31" wasit and went down to a 28" in Shearers (Tagged 28, Measures 29"). They were ridiculously tight at first, and had to wear them very high,their a lot better now. I think I'd still prefer a 29 in them though so I could sag more.

If you soak them they'll shrink to a 31, Samurais generally shrink to tagged size but they'll stretch out back to 33.


So your saying soaking wont shrink these pants at all?

I sized down 3 on my New Standards

People usually size down 1 or get true to waist on their 710BLACK, as for the 710 indigo size down 1 or 2 depending on how you want them to fit.

Shearers size down 1, Cures size down 1. Sizing down 2 would be for the skin tight fit.

newstandard = tapered leg
flathead 310/3001 = straight leg

there you go


well actually New cures are the one with the taper.

no. buying true to size in the 710xx is like sizing down on most jeans because they come tagged size raw and shrink to 1-2 inches smaller. i would not recommend sizing down unless you hate your testes.

x post from APC thread

Just got some NC sized down 2





Not tight at all, should I go down one more?

I usually wear Levis 501 Jeans. Now I want to order a Nudie. Does the "SLIM JIM" Jeans look like a 501 when I order one size bigger?

yea those can't be new cures. going down 2 would be tighter than that

actually, newstandards are tapered too, thanks anyways.

lol didnt even notice he said new cures, just by looking at them and seeing size down 2, i figured newstandards tongueface

I'm pretty sure his pair are new standards. No New Cures fit like that unless you're like a pair of walking chopsticks.

Bought a pair of Triko raw selvedge jeans. Soaked in hot water for two hours before wear. I had to go down one size, and they are relatively baggy. I like em though.

Planning on getting some STFs. Most of my other jeans are 34 but stretch out a lot after a while. I measure myself and my waist is like 35? I always wear my jeans with a pair of shorts on... Weird. But should I just get 34 for STFs?
Jul 08, 2008 @ 12:32
It's been a habit of mine since like i was a child? Feels more comfortable. But the thing is, I've been wearing 34's WITH shorts under. And also, sometimes play sports or something at a random time so I'm prepared.

lmaoo play in your jeans then, it will reflect in the fade as it ages, not to mention all the grass stains/rips/tears/w.e else happens in them, theyd be a pair to be proud of smokeyface
but that must be seriously uncomfortable... even though u say its not lol if its hot out you must get some crazy swamp ass blinkyeyes

I used to wear shorts under my jeans 3-4 years ago because I played basketball everyday during lunch, so having the jeans off helped a bit. But I was wearing baggier jeans if that makes a difference. It does feel weird at first, but you get kind of used to it, especially when you wear shorts under sweatpants.

nudies suck. i have a pair of slim jims and i hate em. the quality is just terrible. go with apc's or uniqlo denim for that price range.

I am not sure if its me, my regular sized Medium T's are looking real awkward with my New Cures. It just doesn't look right from the side. You guys know what i mean?
Jul 11, 2008 @ 03:12
i wear size 28x28 for levi's 569's. it fits normally on me, a lil baggy on the legs but it fits fine. im a pretty skinny & short guy, should i get nudies average joe's sz 27's? (27 in measurement from the selfedge site)
Jul 11, 2008 @ 04:15
what's up guys, I'm about to purchase my first pair of raw denim but I'm debating between the APC new standards or nudie slim jim. Which is the better fit/ quality for the money? Any input would be greatly appreciates...thanx guys

APC ftw... Nudies quality and construction pale in comparison, better to cop the APC's

forgot to mention also I'm 6'0 and 150lbs and a size 32 I hear ur supposed to size down 2 for new standards but not to sure about nudies....can ne 1 verify?thanx again


Yes sz. down 2 on the APC's, but for nudies I believe its true sz. APC's stretch out like crazy, might be a bit tight at first, but its better in the long run

^ if you're skinny you should be fine with a 27. Nudies (and almost all jeans) stretch out a bit, so you should be fine. If theyre too tight after a couple weeks of wear, soak the waistband and put 'em on, it should stretch.
