Hey,

what do you think on these Nudie Grim Tims?
Size's W31 / L34, I could get them somewhat shortened but L32 was a bit too short.


are those dry stretch selvage?
the waist might be a little too big for you since there's quite a bit of diaper ass.
the rest of it fits pretty nice tho.

How do 3sixteen st-100xs fit compared to naked&famous or apc?
Jan 31, 2011 @ 10:57
wondering the same thing.
Feb 05, 2011 @ 17:26
I'm pretty happy with these. I think the fit is about as good as it could be considering my crazy build. Had to take pics of the mirror and I got some random spots where the mirror was smudged. I also had on some BS shoes but whatever. Stack aren't even close to settling. I'm 5'9 so I had to cuff because the amount of stacks were retarded.

Anyway,

-sized down 2
-3 weeks old. Worn every other day.

I don't know whether they are dry stretch selvage (what's the difference to 'normal' dry selvage?) or not.
Actually they fit pretty tight around the waist (although I will lose some weight until spring) and the little diaper ass is due to the fact that they don't fit low on the hips and I tend to sagg.
Man since you've told me it annoys so much.
I'm pretty contend with the fit, except for the fit of the back.

Here are two more examples:

I think you should stay TTS for the organics. I usually size one down for nudies, but not on the organics, because they fit really tight on the thighs compared to the dry nudies.

Anyone know anything about these?

PRPS Heirloom Raw Wash Selvedge Barracuda cut jeans. These are made in the USA.











The buyer said they are labeled as raw, but are really rigid? Said they are vanity sized like crazy. Anyone have them or know anything? What's the fit like and quality like? I need a new pair of raw/slev jeans.

yeah i know what you mean bro, the nudie rise is fuckin' insane lol.

with nudies i usually try sagging more or pulling them up more.

i'm considering getting a pair myself for just casual wear. i'm currently breaking in a pair of SEXI14's tho.

are they grim tims? and did you go tts?

Yeah but looking like a grandfather with jeans pulled up to the armpits isn't that nice either. ;D

Yes, they are grim tims and I sized down 1-2 sizes.
Normally I go for W32/L32 in Levi's 511s or Altamonts, but these Nudies are W31/L34.
In my opinion the cuff is a bit too long, but L32 was too short.

I've been on the fence about hemming these jeans. Should I wait a couple more weeks to see if they settle, or should i just hem them now? Or maybe hem them after the first wash (which will be after a full year)? I've been hearing a lot of different things, but a common rule of thumb seems to be that you should not hem your jeans prior to washing because of the shrink that occurs after washing them. Any thoughts on the stacks and my situation?


Feb 27, 2011 @ 14:04
The stacking on your pair look pretty good though.
On that pair you won't lose much to shrinkage either so if you really want to you could stand to cut off an inch or two.

What's the closest fit to a 27 in N&F Weirdguys? in Nudies or APC?

looks a little too baggy, unless that was the fit you were looking for. looks like you could've sized down more. denim looks nice though

I like the fit. I feel like most people on here won't cause they're not slim. It doesn't look sloppy at all though, just a nice full fit

true to size for warehouse 660?
Mar 08, 2011 @ 11:59
can you guys recommend me some raws that are similar to the fit of the APC Petit Standards? thanks

Posted this in the APC thread as well, but thought I'd share some fit pics here...

About a year ago purchased a pair of APC Rescues...it was my first pair of raw denim jeans and bought them without much research. Just wanted to experiment with a nice pair of jeans.

Bought them and took a while to get used to the rigid-feel, but after a few wears softened up and stretched nicely. Haven't worn them much over the past year, but recently broke them out of the closet to re-evaluate after reading some of these threads.

Here are my takeaways...
- my true waist measurement is 35" with a fabric tapemeasure (i'm 6-1, 192lbs)....my APCs are size 31 (so I basically sized down 4), and the waist, butt, crotch and thighs fit great.

- The leg fit I hated now as too straight leg and baggy...just got them tapered from 10.5" in the thigh, down to 8.25" knee, down to 7.25" ankle opening. I imagine that these now will have the cut similar to Petite Standards.

- Also got the length hemmed about 1.5" off....with the smaller ankle opening they still get some stacks, but not a ton where it looks sloppy to me.

- No washing whatsoever at this point. With the new fit, plan to wear these as much as possible and not worry about them touching water until they get overly dirty. For me that is going to be a LONG time, since I only wear jeans Fri, Sat. and Sun due to work environment (business casual)

Looking forward to seeing how they progress over time.

I just got recently some pictures of me wearing my nudie grim tims and I don't really feel the fit on em. It seems to me as if they are way too long, too much stacking. What do you say?
I've also posted a picture on page 81 and I thought the fit is fine.

I'm now considering to get them somewhat shortened, I actually don't feel the 2" turn-up anymore.
If I turn-up I would go for 1".
What do you say? Should I cut em about 1-1.5"?

I ordered a pair of rigid grey 514 jeans and i was wondering if i wear naked and famous slim guy jeans in size 32 (really size 34) will the 514 fit me in a size 34?
Mar 17, 2011 @ 17:27
Hey guys I need a little help.

I'm a slight bit overweight at 5'7 and wear a size 35 comfortably and can fit 34. I've tested out two pairs of APCs already, NS at 31 (these were far too tight for my frame) and Rescues at 31 (again, the pant leg width just doesn't look good on me). I am going for a little bit of a baggy look. I was advised to size down two to three sizes so I took my normal 34, which I can fit, and brought that down 3. These both resulted in jeans which pant legs width look a little too tight for me, even the Rescues.

My current 31 Rescues, as you can see, not a good look. I'd like to go baggier since I'm a bigger guy.



If i want to go for a wider pant leg width, should I just go for my natural size 34/35 and live with the fact that the waist will stretch out in the future? Also, How much of a difference will going one size up make on the width of the pant leg? Maybe I should try 32 Rescues.

Thanks.
