Anyone have suggestions for a good pair of N&F for Summer?
These Skinny Guy Broken Twills are killing me on those hotter than usual days..
I tried the Skinny Guy Grey Selvedge, and it just doesn't look right. LOL

So aside from that, anyone got recommendations?


I thought the natural indigo was a nice summer jean. It's still 12.5oz, but it's got a summery indigo fade to it.

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

What's the deal with broken twills? I got a pair and they seem to be paper thin. . . not sure if I should return them while I have the chance.

I was considering some WeirdGuy Deep Indigos instead. . .

I wish it wasn't so dam hot here in chicago, I got a solid month of wear on my bjXnf and now its way too hot to wear them. I picked up another pair of jeans from barneys, Lee 101 selvage addicts, I like to try diff brands of jeans. I hope i like them as much as my bjXnf's.

Agreed I have some Natural Indigo and there great for summer and I live in Texas where we're having 100 - 105 degree days.

The broken twills do have a considerably "thinner" feel than the deep indigos. Doesn't necessarily mean that they're of poorer construction and quality; just of a lighter weight. It really depends on what you're looking for. Do you want fast fades? Then go with the broken twills, it's been my experience they fade quicker than most other N&F. Or do you want a pair that's thicker and more stubborn? Then go with the deep indigos. The deeps remain stiffer longer, and overall maintain a much starchier feel. They both will still fade beautifully, but they're vastly different materials with different outcomes.

Thanks. I will keep this in mind. . .

Also, I got my Multicolors today and I really love them, but I am not sure on the fit. Anyone care to help?

I guess they are TTS or sized up. . . my other jeans in a 34 fit my legs well, but are too small for my hips/waist, and anything in a 36 fits my waist/hips but are HUGE on my legs. These are SkinnyG in a 36. The waist fits fine, and the length. But I am unsure about the thight(er) fit at the top on my hips. I can still move and stuff, and can fit my wallet/phone in my pocket. However, I am not trying to go for the jeggings look and was wondering if I should abandon this fit once and for all by switching to the WeirdGuys.

I'd rather get the deep indigos if i was in your position, they look great new and after a few months they look even better. I hate the in between phase of jeans, when they lose the rich indigo color but arent yet faded.

They have WGs in ingigo listed for $170 retail w/ orange stitching for $95 on sale. . . I am pretty sure those are really the deep ingigos and are labeled wrong on the site. Cause the deeps are $170 everywhere (if you can still find them) and have that orange stitching. Can anyone from .ca confirm what they have in stock?

It's really tricky and best to try on, or know your size for each style before you buy. . .

I am an adult with long hips, so I take a WG in a 34, SkinnyG in a 36, and SlimGs don't fit me well at all. . .

I don't really size up / down per se, I just go for what fits my waist and then take it from there. I'd rather have to worry about sagging or wearing a belt. You can do something about pants being too big. Otherwise you have to sell. . .

uncleotis dot com seems to have them listed as "indigo" for $95 on sale. . .

The picture matches the deeps as does the original price - they are listed as $170 on sale for $95. The regular indigos aren't this dark, nor did they ever retail for $170.

I can let you know if it's them for sure in a few days. . .

How would you guys size on the Solid Black WG's? My friend said that they fit a bit smaller than his other Weird Guys. Also, do the Deep Indigos fit the same as the Indigos?

Thanks.
