Playing devils advocate here, two of my rail thin skinnny ass friends both sized up on the skinnies. Fit looks much better than TTS.

They didnt do that on their own though, as mentioned above, Jay from Blue Owl had them measure their favorite fitting pair of jeans and based the recommendation off of that.

Some people are looking for a skinny fit that isn't pasted on, and for those folks sizing up on the skinnies could be the best option. Excessive question marks aside, I have to agree with pin0y.

yup. if i went with size 32 WG the leg opening was 7.5 with baggy ass thighs and knees... my 34 skinnies have leg opening of 8 with a slimmer thigh which is perfect...

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.

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"

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 just washed my Broken Twills after 6.5 months. I hand washed them in the tub. A LOT of indigo bled from them.

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?

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?

Hello guys!

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

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 smile ) 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.

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?
