i doubt the inseam will be shortened
but if it does, you probably won't notice the difference.

Naw it shouldn't, it only decreases the leg opening size which has nothing to do with length.

Hey technique i know you have skulls, Im interested in some after messing up my sam710s

Whats the difference between the 5010xx raw and 5010xx one wash? The one wash is literally just one wash? just to remove the extra starch? Also the one wash is slightly smaller than the raw cause of the shrinkage? However, 5010xx's are sanforsized right?

(But for the one wash 5010xx , is it still really crispy and almost feels raw? )

Also I really want a good fit, I dont want mad hip flare, But i also don't want the 'sufu skinny' fit.

Everyone talks about Lin's fit, and I do want that kind of fit without looking like a hipster since I understand that 5010 are more on the slim/skinny side. My 710xx were slim with a decent taper.

If my true waist is around a 29, should I just go true and get the sz 29? If i buy the raw 5010xx, how much will it stretch(waist, hips/calves/)?

Thanks

any daily smokers in here? do the jeans smell like smoke after awhile?
its my first pair of raw denim, not used to the not washing thing.
cant smell anything on mine after a month, just curious if it ever will?

Jeans are pretty far away from the mouth unless you are smoking in enclosed area.

Yea the one-wash means they just went through a factory machine wash which is more rougher then your at home machine. The denim is softer and not as crisp but is still able to create some defined creases. The 5010xx raw is sanforized raw so there will be just a bit shrinkage but not as much as say your 710's. I would go true to size with this jean as it works best for a lot of people. The raw 5010xx will stretch about an inch after wear, not much in the calves, and maybe .25 - .5 in the thigh.

Guys this is a serious question...

How can I remove honeycombs from my raw denim jeans (nudie slim jim 30 x 32 sized up 1)?

I want to remove them because I've been wearing my jeans both sagged, and a little higher than my waist with a belt; so the honeycombs have spread, and I want them to be concentrated in one area.

I will provide some pics if needed but any help is appreciated

- thanks
Feb 01, 2010 @ 16:06
how long you been wearing them for already?
Feb 01, 2010 @ 16:08

jeans supposed to represent your lifestyle but yeah it wouuld looked fucked if that shit spread lol...

Dandy, nothing you can do the starch just washed off, don't suggest adding your own starch either so deal with it.

Saif, once honeycombs are set, you can't "remove" them.
Feb 02, 2010 @ 06:27
Saif, i think i saw once on superfuture that someone flipped their jeans inside out and ironed the honeycombs. not sur eif they work but thats just somthing to put out their if you wanna try

k so i've had these nudies for about 8 months (of wear) and want to shrink them a bit in the thighs, they are a little bit loose. i dont want to lose much indigo in the process either because theyre not fully broken in yet. I'm throwing in some Woolite Dark but I'm just wondering if I should wear them or toss the jeans in the tub alone? And should I use cold or hot water?
Feb 02, 2010 @ 17:40
tub alone, 20 mins, cold.

turn them inside out. hotter water = more shrinkage and vice versa, so... use your own discretion. i'd try cool water first and see where that gets you.

buy a pair of slim jims blue indigo with orange stiching for like 120$
or save up for a much higher end pair of denim , i.e. skulls?
tell me what you think...
Feb 04, 2010 @ 02:56
Any other raw denim>Nudies blushing

I suggest Flat Head, Skulls, Pure Blue Japan, or Samurai.
Feb 04, 2010 @ 03:39

Feb 04, 2010 @ 16:03

Feb 04, 2010 @ 23:28

i have a question, on all my skinny,slim straight jeans i wear 32 30, and near the ankle area its really fat from the back but from the front it looks nice and bagggy which i like, but in the back its totally ugly like it stands out and its like my legs are all skinny then once it reaches above the ankle it starts to get fat... how can i solve this? am i buying the wrong size? ill post a pic if needed, this is urgent
Feb 05, 2010 @ 17:03
No idea what your talking about, post pics lol
Feb 06, 2010 @ 05:33
@lee, doesn't baggy mean fat in a sense? If it looks fat in the back and looks baggy in the front, doesnt that mean the same thing?
Feb 06, 2010 @ 13:17
I have a quick question, I pretty much know nothing about denim and don't want to by a very expensive pair and not like the fit or mess them up. I like a slim fit Jean and I want to try some raw denim out. I am usually the one to tell people to go with what feels best for them, but alot of you here seem very knowledgable.

I am about 5'7" and 150 lbs, what do you think would be an alright size to start with? In prewashed jeans I usually wear 31 w 30L, is the 501xx STF a good pair to start with? Because right now that's about my price range. Maybe 65 to 100 bucks at the most.

Thanks in advance to anyone with some suggestions.

What's a good pair <$200?


I know APCs and N&Fs are less than 200, but anything Flathead/Sam/etc.?
