Deep Indigos, worn about 10 hours and the stitches are already torn?!

I already regret that there were no Pure Blues that fitted me..



That's a loose thread. How is it torn? LOL



Sorry mate, english isn't my native language hence I didn't know the specific term. So no reason to LAUGH OUT LOUD. ;)

Weird guy is looser in the thigh, a little bit more tapered in the legs than the skinny guys. Slim guys has the same thighs as the weird guy, but no tapered legs. New Standards fit similar to Weird Guys, cept the legs are baggier.

@kingthronecrown I think it's a big difference, think of it as slim guy upper portion as weird and bottom portion as skinny guys

Does anyone know what N&F does if your elephant twos have a selvedge defect? I bought mine pre-owned and the selvedge is messed up on one side

I own a couple pairs of each. It's a pretty big difference. The slim guys don't stack really at all. The weird guys will stack well. I cuff my slim guys into a skinny roll because they look weird if their not a proper length. You'll want to hem or do the same. Weird guys are like the Skinnies, in that you can just stack them up and they look fine.

The "feel" of the fit is different as well. The weird guys will hug your lower leg and ankles where the slim guys wont due to the taper.

I'd say they're vastly different cuts and you shouldn't expect many similarities.

I would say go for the 30s since they are so stiff and especially because you have growing thighs lol, I'm 5'8 115 and I'm wearing a sz 29 and they fit fine.

I agree with himynameisblank...go with the 30's, i'm just a bit smaller than you and went with 29's and the fit is good.

N&F needs to up their quality control. My first E2's had like 2ft of yarn balled up in the inner pant leg and my new ones are missing half of the inner stitching on the rear pocket. Not a big deal ATM for me to send out, I'll prob fix it myself later but I'm not really satisfied. Also the bar tacks, if that's what they're called could be bigger on the rear pockets.

I have two friends, both skinny as a rail (one is a decathlete, dude has like 3% body fat), both with Skinny Jap Heritages sized UP 1 or 2 sizes. They both love them and the fit. Nobody on the webs would endorse that but they look fine IRL and they both love the jeans and how they sit. That's what I recommend to people who are real skinny and interested in NF. Nobody I know is into the painted on Jeans look so TTS or size down in skinnies seems too tight for them. They both came upon that size based on advice from Jay at Blue Owl who essentially told them to measure their favorite pair of jeans and he would send the cut they wanted in the proper size based off those measurements.

I've never worn the skinnies so I'm not really qualified to speak to how they differ from the Slim Guy and Weird Guy.

If you don't like stacks you should think about a hem. I wouldn't look for a cut based on stacks, I'd go with what sits on my top block the best and then hem to the length I like.
