Hi all,

I got a pair of Frankensteins on Boxing day for pretty cheap (80$) and I sized down... However, the problem is that I need to hem a lot of it, but as of now, I just folded the denim inwards (since it looks weird if I flip it out when it isn't selvedged).

My question is, should I get it hemmed asap? and how would you measure the shrinkage after washing so that I don't hem too much?

Thanks,

dude when did you get them at paul's for so cheap?
boxing day?
nope not boxing day. coin toss 30% off or 13% off got 30 :]

imo Pauls is the best place to buy.
Does he still do the coin toss?


the very last coin toss was at december 13th one of the employee said that paul might bring it back.. ya never know

How would skinny guys fit around the thighs if I size up 2-3? I usually wear a size 30 with slim straight jeans, and they fit me well enough that I don't need a belt.

As a general rule of thumb, it is best to get jeans to the length that you want them at ASAP once you know what that length is. The reason why is because if you wear them differently, you may create fades or creases in the legs now that you might not want later once the jeans are the right length.

From my experience, N&F only shrinks about an inch at most in the inseam after repeated washing, so if you give yourself an extra inch when hemming, you should be pretty safe.

They'll fit less tight in the thighs, which is nice IMO, but the waist will be so loose that the jeans will be falling down if you don't wear a belt.

Why do people size down more than 1? If you have to size down more than 1 or go up more than 1, the cut is obviously not for your body type.

I can't do a Skinny Guy, so I went with the weird guy which is much more flattering than if I went +2 on skinny guys in the same fabric.

I can understand with APC though, those mofos STRETCH.

Kids these days.

edit - full disclosure: i usually size down 1 to account for stretch.

finally got some pics together to show the regular indigo WG's, they've got around 50 wears, but nothing really to beat them up, being a student sitting in a desk all day.

I bought these TTS, and regret it because the waist is stupid large and I'm probably getting less fades, but the upside was that I was only miserable wearing them for about a day...

also have the Raised, Frankensteins, and Double Weave Houndstooth, all WG fit. I'll get pics posted if anybody wants them for any reason?

I think the deep indigo's (def -1) are my next purchase...but has anyone seen the new blanket lined WG's on tobi? brandon is a mad scientist...very happy I got turned on to this brand.

Well this is my first time sizing down 2. I went tts last time and it stretched out too much and got too baggy. When these are done stretching I will see how I like the fit. If they are too tight then I will get 31's next time, if they fit fine then i ll stay at a 30. Just an experimenting with fits right now because I dont live near a retailer that sells selvedge denim

Mine took 3 days to get to customs and has been there for 2 days now. As far as your order goes, they took a long time to e-mail me shipping confirmation, I would suggest to just send them an e-mail on the customer service website.

I had to e-mail them in order to get my shipping confirmation because it did take them a while

edit: i placed my order at 8:00am on 1/13 and it was accepted at canadapost at 1:38 pm on 1/13 so after they e-mail you you will see that it only take them a business day to ship but like 3 or 4 to e-mail you

Well my sz 28 weird guy deep indigos are going to be in my mailbox when I get home. I'm normally size 30-31 so we'll see just how hard it is to button them!

I sized down 2 because I have pretty skinny legs and i didn't want the slight baginess of the Weird guys to look well, "weird".
