A size 28 skinny guy has a leg opening of 6.6 inches. That sounds ridiculously small. Do these fit comfortably over boots or what? That almost sounds like skin tight to me. But still the fit pics I see don't look like it. I'm a little confused on what to think.

I need to find some kind of extreme activity because my deep indy's aren't really fading. Cakes, you got any pics?

And the elephants at 4 months is nuts!!! Maybe I should go throw myself off of a mountain or something lol. Also how are people getting tight combs with the elephant denim? With the thick denim I've got like 4 big combs.

Got a pair of the Red Weft Jeans from N&F, and im wondering if this red is supposed to show through when i give them their first wash, or if they fade to white like any other jean? Id love some advice from anyone whose done a pair with colored weft in the past.. Thanks.

when i got my hemmed i took the extra denim and did a sort of fade test. i took sandpaper to them. the red didn't show through until i was almost all the way through the denim. basically right before a hole. so you have to wear them to paper thin for red to show.

Those are my Red Wefts posted up there on SUFU. The pics are original pics are buried somewhere in this thread and they've been cross-posted all over SF and SUFU.

I blew the goddamn crotch out tonight actually. Anyone know a good tailor in the Burke/Chantilly/Fairfax area of the DMV?

They don't fade to red until you're at near blow out status, but once you've worn them enough they take on some crazy hues in sunlight. Also, they're comfortable as fuck till you got a cold January breeze blowing up your ass crack. I highly recommend them. I've worn the shit out of them over the past few years and people love to ask about them.

If it's the one in between Hallman and Chestnut near where 50, 29, and 236 meet that's where I'm thinking of taking them.

Elephant 2's or Deep Indigo skinny guys? Elephant's look nice but I've heard so many people with quality issues on them. Don't want them to blow out and have to repair it after a few months. Also, do Elephants fade or not that well?

Sounds good. I'm going to pull the trigger on elephant 2's then. How much do you think they will stretch? 22 oz is pretty good. I want to make sure I size correctly so they don't stretch and then I can't wear them after like half a year.

Cernio-- I just measured my HIPS and it's about 32" size 28 SkG in Elephants were way too tight when I had the top buttoned and it was also tight around my waist. If you decide on 28's I say measure your hips and if they're 30+ I say get a size 29. Also look for a store that has both 29 and 28 so you can exchange if need be. I was going to get 29's but got 30's first because it was the last one and the fit isn't bad so I stuck with it even tho 29's would have been perfect.

As far as DI fades go, I think as long as you're very active they'll fade kinda fast. I don't do much so, and I really only were them about 20 hrs a week for the past 8 months.

Here's a couple pics I took at work..

weird guy deep indigo 29 (tts) Pics suck but 2 soaks 1 dry clean

How long you been wearing those? You got about the same fit as I do with my skinny guy 30's. I get a little hip flare when trying to pull them down. I like the fit of SkG but would rather have the lower rise.

Does anyone have thigh measurements for 28 weird guy? Wondering if it really is 11" as stated on BlueOwls site. 10.75 would be perfect or a little smaller.

Question concerning n&f.
a friend of mine is new to the raw denim game and it will probably end up with some deep indigos.
What do you recommend for sizing on the different fits?
after some research i'd recommend size down 1 or 2 for the weird guys and slim guys and size down 1 or tts for the skinny guys.
are you d'accord?
thanks man!

Yeah, thats usually how you"ll size it. What i would do, would to measure a pair of your favorite fitting jeans and then contact Jay at Blue Owl. He's extremely helpful.
