thinkin of buying a pair of slim NFs and i got a question about the sizing. i wear a size 30 for levis 511.

from the pages that i've read on this thread, i should be sizing down about 2 sizes? so a size 28 would actually be a size 30?
also, i've read that after wearing them for a bit, they will stretch about 2 sizes bigger, but will shrink back down 2 sizes when you soak them? is this correct? would i still be aiming for a size 28?

sorry i'm just a bit confused as this would be my first pair of raws

That sounds about right. I'm not sure how much they'll stretch because I haven't personally owned any slimguys but if they do shrink when you soak them, they're likely to stretch back out close to how they were before after wearing them a little.

I tried on the skinny guy indigo power stretch today and those are amazing. Amazing as in comfortable. That is, compared to their regular non-elastic jeans. I can only wonder what the cashmere's feel like...


Cashmere stretch feels like silk~

I have a pair and like it very much.

little bit expensive but it's worth it|0

Two pics of my Broken Twills, will shotting these photos I wasn't wearing a belt so the jeans look baggy.
Have these jeans since 25th of October 2010 worn them almost every day since.

The Barney co-op still has some descent choices left in manhattan. I was just able to score the camo weft denims for under $100. They had a few of those left as well as a ton of the cashmere denim on sale too

I know Wierd guys are a tapered fit, but does anyone have a layer by layer comparison on how slim Wierd guys are compared to Slim guys?

Im sure this was probably mentioned but searching the thread I could not find exactly what I am looking for. Do size 27 Weird Guy Elephant Denim exist? I have a size 28 and am slightly worried that these may stretch out too much. I have wore them only for the third time today and the waist already fits perfectly. From what I hear of Weird Guy's they stretch alot, but is that the same with the 19oz. Elephant denim?

They should stretch very minimally. Denim that weighs more than 18oz. should be tts

I disagree. I have a lot of experience with denim over 18 oz., and how much it stretches depends more on how tightly it is woven than it does on the weight. Most of my heavy denim has stretched as much as my lighter denim.

The Elephant denim will definitely stretch as well. Those Weird Guys will probably end up being a little bit loose on you if they fit perfectly right now. Shouldn't be too bad, though, they stretch less if they aren't really tight to start with. Also, I would wear a belt to help minimize the stretching.

Well my 21oz denim from naked and famous has stretched quite a bit in as little as 3 days I think naked and famous should make some really heavy denim in a skinny fit and not weird guy. Cus I have the 24 and 26oz but I'm not wearing them lol Cus of stretch

how fast is everything going you think? i'm on vacation and coming back to houston in about a week and i'd like to catch it before all the good stuff is gone.


In Houston for a week, stopped by the Barneys CO-OP today and everything is pretty much gone. There's just one or two racks with all the sizes of denim left. No N&F.

Checked out 310 Rosemont, they have a wall that's all 60% off. The only N&F I saw on sale were WG Grey Selvedge, which is a good deal at that price ($150 at 60% off, $60). Only sizes 30, and 33 and up I think. They also had another WG and Slim Guy but at reg price.

Selling (if my sig still lists it, it's still available!): N&F Japan Heritage 32, N&F x Big John 31 and 32

how much does deep indigo fabric stretch? I have a pair skinny guy black power stretch sz32 and it stretched out for a great snug fit, but evidently it shud be stretchier then deep indigo as the name suggests stretch?

I would recommend only sizing down 2. The power-strech is just 5% elastane woven into the fabric, which means that the cotton around it is really what makes it fit like it does. That 5% should make the fabric more flexible but not have a significant amount of more strechiness overall.

Your right I thought that the elephant skin was heavier than it was, my mistake. However I would follow this table for sizing purposes.

Nifty table time:
Denim > or = 21 OZ Stay true size
Denim = 14 Oz Size down 1
Denim = 12 Oz Size down 2

I say this, because the 24 oz I tried on at Barney's were so thick that I couldn't fit my usual size at all. But the Broken twills I have I could have sized down 2. I think its the fabric thickness that determines sizing in Naked & famous, since I always size down my customers 2 in Slim Guys, and their lighter weight denim.

im thinking about getting the grey selvedge denim in a weird guy fit. are they gonna fade? i'm pretty sure they aren't, but just to make sure, will they fade at all?
January 12, 2011 @ 19:19:25
I recently purchased a pair of brand new N&F Weirdguy Deep Indigo and discovered that the fit is different than a pair of almost new Weirdguy in black selvage that have. Both are size 27 but the Deep indigos are much stiffer and a tad tighter esp at the leg opening. Anyone know why?

They will. I've had mine for almost a year now, they do look quite different.
