So im looking to get into denim and I am deciding between APCs and NF
Im looking for more of a fitted look, and I am usually waist size 32-33 on most jeans.

I've heard a lot of good things about the weird guy denim, is that a fitted variation?
and what about the skinny guys?
thanks for the help!

^Weird guy is a fitted look with a looser thigh. So it is kind of like a carrot fit but not drastic.

Skinny guy (to me) seems to be skinny straight down.

I own both, and for a skinny jean look I prefer the skinny guy, for a more streetwear look the weird guy is good.

WG is best fit imo. Unless you want a skinny fit

I think APC has a lot more variation with the fits, because of their cuts and the way certain people size with them. A pair of NS can look very different from person to person depending on their body type and the way they sized with their pair. Naked and Famous has pretty standard cuts, and the sizing doesn't change drastically from person to person. Weirdguy is the more tapered fit, gives you some room in the thighs but still as a nice enough leg opening for a modern fit able to stack, cuff, etc. Skinny guy is just a skinny straight leg all the way and imo can be sometimes a little harder to pull off for some. Pick a cut that suits your body the best and you'll have a fitted pair of jeans. And if you're debating between n+f and apc, ask your self what you are looking for more, nice cuts and minimalist design (apc), or variation of fabrics and variety with pretty standard cuts (n+f). Good luck bro! You can't go wrong with either!

Will Frankenstein weird guys fade well?


I will be washing mine soon. I have worn them since January of this year. But, I haven't worn them everyday... Just occasionally. They are unconfy as hell! Also, I am inexperienced in raw denim, so when I scratched my thigh a couple times, I could see some streaks in the denim ? :S Hopefully they turn out okay. I don't see a large fade contrast on the jean yet for some reason.. So I may wear them out a little longer. Anyone have suggestions on how to get them to fade more?

Also, has anyone bought the reverse fade denim? I heard that the resin coat makes it look a little weird....and I am also curious to how easy the fades are

thanks for all the feedback from everyone!
Last question, do NF stretch like APCs?
i think I'm going to go with the weird guy model, so
if im normally size 32 should i size down to 31 or 30?
a great help! thanks guys
Jul 02, 2011 @ 21:05
31 for a more slim, less skinny fit I'd say. 30 for the more standard WG fit. Also depends on what kind of WGs they are, some fit bigger/smaller than others

Hey guys I'm looking into getting my first pair of Naked & Famous jeans. I'm thinking of getting the skinny guy indigo jeans. I wear size 30x30 Levis 511s. Would 30x30 be the perfect size or should I look at getting a smaller size?

Thanks

Probably should try em on. Measure your waist, Levi's tend to make their jeans waist's different depending on wash, even if it's the same model.

I wish people would read the thread before posting fit questions, they've all been answered a hundred times previously.

To be honest, its easier to ask. People are happy to help in threads like this. IT would take them a lot longer to look for the answer themselves

broken twill. more or less stretch than the standard youd expect from NF?

Good choice with n+f, but it would be best to measure your actual waist (where the jeans are going to sit) and then size your jeans based on that. For skinnyguys usually people go true to size, or they would size up 1 for a less skinny look, sizing down would be really tough and uncomfortable for about a month at least i'd say.

it stretchs a little bit more than other NF skinny guys

that means it's comfier~

most NF denim runs more or less tight on waist but you can usually stretch them out without

sizing up if you go for broken twills.

i would like to know more about the wghigh. i work in a vintage shop with a looney dress code that makes NF's low rises not so much wearable there. something lighter tho, with a 12" rise, and i'd be solid.

also i want a black selvage flat front chino with slash pockets. like a 50's twill work pant. w/o the polyester.

thanks and happy 4th.

This is how a 32 in the Big John looked like on me. Did I make the right choice in sizing down to a 31?


I think the Weird Guy High is supposed to be a 5 button fly jean instead of the usual 4.

probably couldve even sized down one more to a thirty. it should be extremely difficult to button, i got the skinny guys and the first week i had to lay down to button them up lol and now they fit perfect.

I would not recommend sizing up from your true waist measurement at all on Skinny Guys. They already run about an inch bigger than tagged in the waist, so once they stretch out, they'll be excessively loose there. I tried sizing up on this cut once before, and it turned out horribly.

With Skinny Guys, I would recommend either TTS or sizing down 1. Personally, I've gotten my best fits in that cut sizing down 1, and I'm not skinny at all.
