sup guys, i recently bought these jeans,
i was real happy with the fit for a week kinda but now i feel like i want the lower leg to be a tad skinnier.
i dont really want to have to give em to a taylor to hem them, so im wondering wether hot soaking would shrink them a bit. wouldnt be a problem to have em overall shrink a bit as ive got a 32 instead of my normal 31 so theres enough room for shrinkage anyway.

PS: nudies forums say soaking ( they only talk cold soaks to clean tho) wont really affect the shine of the coated shit, but even if it would dgaf as i got some fabric wax and fit > shinyshit anyways imo.

please lmk wether soaking would shrink em a bit

I've been wearing a size 30 in NF weird guy indigo for about two weeks and they have stretched to fit well (not sure if they're done stretching or not). Would a size 30 in APC new standard be the correct size? I don't think I could take a crotch any tighter than what I have now. Also a size 32 in levi 514 have stretched to sag just a little more than I like.

thanks

Just recently bought my first pair of nudies and the fit so far is perfect. However, at first, the whiskers were super defined and held, but after about two weeks they don't seem to be holding too much anymore. Obviously the jeans are softening up with everyday wear, but is this normal? Also, haven't soaked these yet and try are stretching quite a bit, gonna try to hold out til the end of the month.

Do you guys often have any problems with raw denim or in my case n&f's staining your wallet/belt? I wanna get a pair of n&f's but don't want them to turn my canvas wallet or the inside of my belt black.

Can I get some help with denim stretching? I wanna stretch the size of the waist and the crotch area. I heard that you can wet the area you wanna stretch then wear it for a while. Can someone give me a good guide on how to.

^ indigo transfer

comes with the territory, adds character, if you don't like it then go with some sort of prewash jeans

yea mine are raw, regular indigo color. perhaps soaking them would remove some of the dye but i don't think that would be enough to keep from staining your stuff. my wallet and belt are dark brown so it isn't very noticeable.

I also have a pair of white sneakers that got stained blue from a pair of levi 514s and those weren't raw.

Okay, so I have some orange selvedge Nudie’s, been wearing them about 3-4 times per week since Christmas, they are a little loose around the knees so I want them a bit slimmer; will washing them soon achieve this, or will they only shrink 3-5%? I want honeycombs but a nice deep indigo colour and a slimmer fit, can anyone help please? Never been soaked or washed, will soaking help for what I want? 1st pair of raws.

I've been wearing my NF weird guys (Left Hand Twill) for a week or so and the buttons are a lot easier to do now but how the hell do you guys who wear these take a piss without undoing the every damn button and your belt? For one the buttons are tough to open/close but that's typical (I'm hoping they get easier with time) and the rise is so short my damn fingers cant get in there to whip it out. i love these pants but this is really annoying hahaa.

I wear my seven days a week. No problem, faster fades. But with summer coming up, they're being less and less worn.

i'm looking for a pair of wax / treated black denim or perhaps leather pants... what would you guys recommend? right now i'm looking into nudies but have no knowledge at all on this type of denim. thanks.
Nudies would be your best bet. I can't think of any solid denim brands that make the type of jeans you are looking for. Most take a traditional approach. I'm sure there are other brands. Check out revolveclothing, and tobi

Ok, I need some advice. I'm planning on getting my first pair of good quality denim. I'm kinda in between a 38 and 36 and I got short legs (I prefer a 29 inseam). Anything between 200 and 400 dollar range is what I'm lookin' for. I used to wear Levi 514 Slim Straights, but after I lost alot of weight they fit too baggy in the leg. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Just buy whichever jeans you like and hem them. Also expensive jeans aren't always better. There are lots of great jeans, even superior jeans, that are available for under 200$. J Crew has some really great fitting slim jeans for 100$.

You'll probably like Naked & Famous WeirdGuys though.

So, i have a few small questions dudes
I measured some jeans, and my waist and front rise are throwing me. I followed Context Clothing's advice for sizing, and my waist came out to be approximately 14 and a quarter inches. My question is, should I double that when purchasing a jean, opting to go for the smaller size (taking a 28 over a 29, for instance), or following APC sizing and going two down.
Also, I'm fiending over the latest SExI12, and the front rise is a little taller(longer? ) than i measured on myself. My question for this, is if that will make a huge difference in the way the jean wears or not, and if there is any way to combat that.

Also, does anyone else encounter the problem of a small bulge in the crotch area (small bulge teehee)? like, the denim fabric bows or bulges up along the zipper. it seems to happen to all my jeans.

Anyone know if it's alright to iron your jeans to restart the creases? My friend's lookin at a pair of cheap sams but the creases are lookin ugly as fuck.

Hey guys. Just wondering, has anyone been able to wear out their raws while maintaining a really slim fit and keeping a nice hug on the bum? I'm at about 4 months on my N&F elephant 2s and they've just become baggy in the legs, and my ass looks like im wearing a diaper. I'm considering a new pair of raws (leaning towards APCs) that will maintain a tight slim fit that will hug my bum really nicely.

Help anyone?

do whiskers come about by how tight the jeans fit or just how you sit?
