The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

hi guys i just bought my first pair of n&f raw denim... i was wondering should i soak it in water so that the jeans wont shrink that much when i start tearing them up... some said it shud be soak in vinegar overnight :S sry if i ask silly question but this is my first pair of raw denim...

they shrink by tearing them up? this is new to me..

you're getting it wrong: they'll stretch under stress.

some people soak their jeans to "break" the indigo, hoping to get faster fades.
imho, I wouldn't do an initial soak, just wear them and don't care about them too much.

i think yall forgot that the leg opening gets bigger as you size up... dumbasses.


well thats obivious isnt it? they'll still be ill fitting jeans... and the fades will shift as soon as they touch water.
whatever dude you're money down the drain, you're trolling yourself...
i went tts on my skinny's and they stretched out to be more like slim jeans....not any "faggoty jerker jeans 510 jeans"
have the last word or whatever i dont give a shit ahahah

if you can button them up WITH struggle they are the perfect size. Jay said that if the thigh crotch area is really tight you should just run up and down the stairs, do squats ect... also it takes like 3-4 weeks for them to really stretch.

I don't know the exact amount, but a lot. My legs had rashes at the beginning from being so restricting. Now I can wear them comfortably. But then again, I don't know how big you are and how small your jeans are in comparison.

Hi guys, im new here. Just a quick question: which is healthier for NFs and other raws, hand washing or machine washing? Fades will come out pretty differently right?
Mar 10, 2012 @ 23:07
I prefer hand washing/soaking them hence I can control the amount of water/soap that runs through em.
Also the indigo is richer after a soak than a machine wash.
how long have you been rocking your raws?

DAMN. I've had some Natural Indigo Selvedge Slim Guys for only about 2 months, and some fuck spilt a combination of butter and oil on them. theres only 3 spots, but they are noticeable, and i don't want to wash them...WHAT DO I DO?
Mar 11, 2012 @ 08:07
Hello guys!

I'm going to pick a nice NF pair and I hope you will help. blushing

Firstly according the fit. Generally I wear something a bit baggy (low rise, on my hips) and definitely not skinny and not too tight. So what should I pick? Slim guy or weird guy? I saw a couple of picks and weird guy looks a bit too tight on them. Is it true and the better choice for me will be a slim guy?

Secondly according the denim itself. I like "soft" denim mostly that is not too thick. Also this time I want to buy denim that will show minimal amount of fades/washes/dents etc. with age (this sounds a bit strange I know blushing ) and will save it's own color. What type/color will be the best for me?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Nick.

slim guys would be your best bet or maybe WG one size up. You could basically get any model and probably do frequent washes to keep from having contrast in the fades. You would want to at least do wash when you first get them if you don't want any combs or major wiskers.

If you browse through blueOwls site they list the the weight of each model. Pretty much every model is kinda thin. And all raw denim will soften up with wear and washes.

anybody know how long it takes to stretch the waist of my skinny guys post wash?
Mar 14, 2012 @ 17:51

I'm looking to buy a pair of Weird Guy jeans, never bought this brand before. I've heard to go two sizes down so if I'm a 31X32 in Levi 511's should I get a 29?
Mar 16, 2012 @ 05:11
yeah, you can size down two. What kind of fit do you want tho? Are you a skinny dude or bigger?
Mar 16, 2012 @ 05:38
I'm more skinny/muscular 5'8 140 so I was thinking the 30, I just measured my waste with a tape measure and it's about 31.5
Mar 16, 2012 @ 05:39
size down 2
Mar 16, 2012 @ 06:16
Bought a pair of blanket lined double denim for 73$ at holt renfrew last call and was wondering if they fade and stretch like the other denim?
Mar 16, 2012 @ 06:39
I would size down 2 for a skinny fit. I posted a fit pic a few pages back but here's another. I went tts, WG 29



And here's a couple more taken with my phone. Think I have about 7 months of wear. 2 soaks 1 hand wash



Mar 16, 2012 @ 15:28
Alright, got the size 29 thanks for the help guys.
