what size are you normally and was it the skinny guy?

I'm normally a size 30, sized down to 29, and Weird Guy.

I guess I can try emailing them.

Yeah, they are pretty snug in the thighs, the last picture shows it best. I pulled up some of the excess in the leg to show how much bag there is, and there really isn't much. Thanks again for the feedback. These cost too much money imo to have an improper fit.


wear them for about a week or so than see if you dont like them. they will stretch trust me.

Umm. Idk if it's considered TTS or 2+. My legs usually fit well in normal jeans in a size 34, but the waist is too tight for my hips. But when I size to 36 in normal jeans, the waist is too big and the legs are HUGE. So a 36 in the SkinnyGs fits my legs well (except thighs imo) and the waist is kinda spot on. I don't have HUGE thighs, but my hips are long so that's why there is a tight section at the top instead of just a small spot where other peoples hips would be.

A 36 in WGs for me is HUGE, so I went with 34s in them. It all depends on your build really, like I would try on something in a store if at all possible before buying, OR make sure you get a place that allows returns, and then start big, and return them for the next size down until you get the fit you want.

I'd like them to be baggier at the top I think, at least in the legs. I don't know how these will stretch either. But I guess on the other hand, if they fit me snug all over, they should fade to my body almost perfectly.


hmm, well im a bit slimmer, i usually wear 33
so i guess for skinny guys i should go for a 34 or a 33, i was about to go for a 32 since i heard they ran one size big to begin with o_0

I think I'm going to return them. I just can't bring myself to chance something fitting for $200. Thanks for the help though! tongueface

These pants don't run big at all. Get a 33 from a place that lets you return them. Tobi.com has free shipping and 30% with JULY30 as a code. Get the 33 and decide from there. You can get a pair of the broken twill (best color imo) for $98 shipped.

I find it ironic that you intentionally sized down to a fit that is admittedly "hella tight" but are pissed that they're popping at high stress points. I know people recommend sizing down for the WG, but there's only so much grind you can fit in the sausage before the casing starts to pop.

Buy jeans that fit, and maybe they won't fall apart?

TRUTH! No matter how good the construction is on a pair of jeans, it won't stretch 4 sizes extra.

You are recommended to size down on any sanforized jeans, unless you want it to fit hella loose. Why the hell would I pay money on jeans that will continue to stretch and will be too loose on me afterwards? I've sized down two on Weird Guys before and they've stretched almost two sizes. They fit me perfectly now. I don't see how your point is valid.

In what way am I peeing in your pool, doods? I came in here to merely state my opinion and defend it. Are you offended? No buttons on any pair of jeans should be popping off after a couple of wears. Anyways, my Deep Indigos have stretched and are less tight now. I'm missing two buttons but it's all good, I'll manage.

Did you size down from your actual waist measurement, or did you size down from your size in other jeans? When it is recommended that you size down with N&F, it is generally in reference to your actual waist measurement, not your usual size in other jeans.

N&F are vanity sized, but so are many other brands. If you normally wear other vanity-sized brands, and you size down from there with N&F, they could end up being too tight for you.

All that being said, I do agree with you on the stitching and the buttons for N&F, they're definitely not the sturdiest of any denim brand that I've worn.

Yes, I sized down one from my actual waist size. I have not had that many problems nor complaints with my previous pairs of N&F. I really do admire their denim, especially their various cuts. Maybe I just got a bad pair out of sheer bad luck.

yeah maybe it was just some bad luck.. in my experiences n&f has been constructed well (not the best, but good). They are really good about helping you out though, i've heard of peoples buttons and stuff falling off and just emailed naked and famous and they sent them some new hardware. There are always little things that can go wrong, but at least they are trying to help out and make their customers lives a little easier!

It was a statement of fact ("you're being ironic") and a sausage joke followed by a piece of advice ("buy jeans that fit better"). That's all, nothing more, nothing less. I cannot help that he took offense to the remark; and I wasn't implying there's an incorrect way to wear and buy jeans. I was saying that it's funny to me that he admitted his jeans were too tight but was seemingly miffed at the flaws in the construction, being that in my personal experience the tighter you go, the more natural flaws you're going to bring out.

What I AM saying is that the "size down for WG" advice is erroneous and mainly does people a disservice.

Anyone who owns multiple pairs of NF will tell you that the sizing varies from fabric to fabric AND from run to run. The weird guy Deeps won't fit the same as the same size broken twills and sizing has varied across every pair I've tried on. Two pairs of the same fabric released as part of separate runs also may not fit the same. I own 8 pairs of NF at this point 4 WG and 4 Slim G and none of the same models fit the same in an exact size comparison. I've had to size down, size up, and go TTS to find fits I liked across all 8 of those pairs of jeans. So, if we can agree that the sizes are going to fluctuate virtually pair to pair, what's the point of hard and fast advice like "size down on the WG?" Toss in the variation between preference in fits and lifestyles, and I think sizing advice is maybe the most fruitless conversation one could have about a pair of jeans.

The best advice you can get is, if you don't want your jeans to suck, try them on. Make sure they fit how you like them to. If you buy jeans that aren't tight, they might stretch a little, but since your not stressing them, they won't stretch as much as if you had sized down. If you size down and your jeans are tight they will stretch more because they're tight and need to stretch more to accommodate the stress you've put on them. Listening to other people's experiences and taking anecdotal "proof" as hard evidence of what you must do to get the "desired fit" when you're buying a $100+ pair of jeans is fucking crazy in my opinion.

Here's the kicker, the jeans that "stretched two sizes" would have only stretched one size if he had gone one size up and bought a fit that wasn't so tight. I can size down and cram my balls into my jeans and walk around in pain and stretch em 2 sizes. Or I can not size down and see minimal stretch because I bought a pair that fits reasonably well. You can also still get a snug fit that accounts for stretch without following the hard rule of sizing down due to the aforementioned fluctuations in size.

Only the first paragraph of this was directed towards Griefy.

He's right about this, gauging what size n&f to get is a real crap shoot. Ive had 32's that have fit almost exactly like 30's and so on. The sizing varies so much that if you buy online you just have to hope to god and pray they fit right, or just rock em and dont complain that they are too tight but your too lazy to return them for a size that fits

I have the Big John WGs, a pair of red weft WGs, a pair of green WGs, and I recently tried on the WG chinos. For me, they all ran about the same.

If I went TTS on The weirdguy chinos, would they be too loose??


IME, yes. Every pair of WGs that I've ever worn or tried on has run 2-3" bigger in the waist than tagged.

Yeah I think so, the chino's stretch like any other weird guys so you'd want to size down 1-2 depending on how tight and stuff you'd like the fit.
