i'd get the deeps then . . . they are pretty heavy so if it is summer / humid now, you might not wear them much until the fall . . .


well it's always summer here, I'm in Singapore smile

Getting the WG deep indigo then, only available size is 1 size down.. I'd rather have 2 sizes down though

Anyone ever tried 3 sizes down on WG E2?

Weird guy deep indigo sized down 1 (size 29)



I want my fit to be like this.

What stores in LA can I get a pair?


Dunno if you have a Barney's Co-op or American Rag near you. But they both carry NFs

the fades shift because YOU DONT give them the initial soak prior to wear.
im not being snarky, im just tellin it like it is....and if you own over 10 pairs of a jean brand thats been out for about 5...you arent wearing your jeans nearly enough as you should... soaking removes the creases...but like i said IT COMES BACK. Go piss off and get some better jeans maybe then you'll know what im talking about
shitty advice my ass man


I do initial presoaks and the reason I have 10 pairs is because I live in a seasonal region and work in an office; some of them (shockingly) get a lot more wear than others.

I only wear my Ducks when I need a casual pant; I only wear the Hound’s Tooth Weird Guys when it's cold as fuck out; I only wear my Broken-Twill Slim Guys with boots, and the E1 WG with low-cut sneakers; I only wear my Kevlars Slim Guys when I'm shooting guns and wearing boots (for obvious reasons); I only bought the Red-Wefts (my most beat up pair of jeans) to wear in a Halloween Spiderman outfit; I bought the Raised Selvage Slim Guys a size up to wear over the pair of Weird Guy Greycasts that I fuck bitches in; two button fly thickness so I’m just a little bit less insistent on smashing the cervix, you may know how that goes.

Most of that above paragraph is bullshit but you get my point, I change my shit up; I have to. I work in an office, and can't show up with smelly dirty jeans so I soak first, and I soak often; usually hot. But I do put in work on my jeans (and fade them well) regardless of what you deem the appropriate length of wear.

I know all about hot soaking and it's effects. I never did cold soaks cause I never gave a fuck; dirty jeans are dirty jeans, you wash them or you're a fucking hobo. I get that mentality; get ‘em clean and fuck the Nudies six-month marketing ploy and the web fan-boys that trumpet its supremacy.

However, it has been my experience that when you work in an office and you don’t want to lose your creases, after you've already soaked previously, a hot-soak is the worst way to go; especially two months in when you're looking to clear odors but maintain raw properties. I didn’t want or need hot-soak or pre-soak advice; I'd received it (because I read) and followed it (with mixed success on many other pairs) but wanted to see what kind of damage I could do with only controlled cold soaks.

I'm not trying to go swag-to-swag with you, so you'll have to excuse me for getting uppity, but don't get after me on some "go up in quality" bullshit when you don't know shit about me. I live in the most expensive area in the country from a cost-of-living perspective other than San Francisco and NYC; I make monthly payments that would make a lot of these cats blow a vagina shaped fade in their jeans, and I still spend what I want on denim and my other hobbies as well as saving redundantly for the future. I define living large and living within your means and I’m damn proud of that. Self-made.

Your complete agreement with the guy who you quoted, who said, "it's not like they're unsanforized or anything" directly contradicts your flippant post suggesting that I'm a retard for not presoaking (which I did). If that is completely true then a pre-soak wouldn’t matter.

If what you state is true, and NF's quality is the difference, why the hell are you here passing out advice for an inferior quality brand? It might be the right advice for your "high-end" steez. But down here, it may not apply.

Check my post history on here if you'd like. I've put in some work on some denim. I don’t get usually get in dick measuring contests or caught up in braggadocio, but I'll take an exception (I obviously already have). Peep my post history; call out my shit. I will take the Pepsi challenge.

Bottom line is your experience will always be different from mine, and I was looking for advice from cold soakers strictly because I haven’t given a fuck about water temp until recently and instead I got some "jawnz–gawd-forum-diddy-bopper-bullshit” advice from you. Thanks but no thanks. A few pages ago you tore open a guy who wanted to size up to find his proper fit in the skinny guys...which is not bad advice if you have the right body type.

I shouldn’t need to say more so I won’t, other than this:

I write professionally, so please don’t flatter yourself and think this took longer than twenty minutes.

You should read it; it is pretty funny and as I pointed out your "advice" is both contradictory and condescending. Also, the phrase you were looking for there is "case in point" buster.

i give all my jeans the hottest soak, gets rid of a lot of excess indigo and starch, keeps the denim healthy too.

So I have a size 31 APC NS, they fit well but could/should probably be one size smaller and I wish they were skinnier. Will a size 30 NF skinny guy dark indigo fit me or is that way too small? I'm 6'1" 175 lb.

Thanks in advance!

I'm checking out the naked and famous denim lately, and I'm quite curious about the natural indigo skinny denim. It says skinny guys, but it looks like it fits more like tapered. I want a fit like model at karmaloop.

http://www.karmaloop.com/product/The-Skinny-Guy-Jean-in-Natural-Inidigo-Selvedge/80049

Should i size up 1 or go TTS?

And whats the difference between selvedge and raw denim?


the way the models size on karmaloop is ridiculously off. They always size up like 4 and sag.

So if youre a size 30 in APC NS = A true size 32 or 33.

So you'll need a size 32 NF Skinny Guy

Raw denim is the wash, or lack thereof
Selvedge denim is the product of a type of fabric production where the edge is finished with at characteristic line.

Raw denim =/= Selvedge denim
and vice versa

I would say a size 32 should be good for you!! I used to wear a size 30 APC NS and was a 32 in NF

Slow down "Kanye-minus--caps-lock", I do write professionally, and not on some fake-internet-gangster-wannabe-playboy-bullshit. Hate all you want because I drew the line at spending on fucking jeans at NF, especially given it doesn't appear that you can put a competent sentence together...son. You sound ridiculous.

Why do you come here if you think the brand is low-rent? I'll answer that for you; this forum thing is a competition to you, keeping up with the Joneses, ballin out of control. In order to win, you gotta find somebody to lose. I got past that mentality when you were still a twinkle in you daddy's eye. I like NF because of the variety of fabrics and cuts. And you might be right, and maybe I can't justify spending more than the "cheap price" of 100 to 200 per pair on a pair of jeans, and maybe I just havent experienced sherpa denim hand woven by bedouins, but I'm at the point in my life where making the choice between NF and and all that bullshit is possible, but not in the least bit important to my identity. I'm cool with that, it is why I come pretty much strictly to this thread. You see, it is not that I can't afford to wear higher end denim, it's that I just dont really give a fuck about being pretentious cunt these days and instead want something fun and affordable. It's about priorities.

Hot soaked my momo collab skinny guy for the first time for an hour. Around 4-5 months wear. Basically no indigo loss but the damn thing shrunk quite a bit... They fit like nut huggers!! The stretching ppl say over here is over exaggerated. For some reason my jeans never stretch the desired amount. Either that or i expand with them... Anyone here have any experience with the stretch on the momo collabs?

mine stretched an inch on me in the waist, because they were forced to . . . hot soak was probably the culprit, i don't think i'll ever do a hot soak on anything i own unless it's too big

pics?

Yo guys, saw Naked & Famous at a Pacsun store a few days ago. I was pretty surprised, and went on their site and saw some more pairs there.

I've got a brand new pair of Skinny Guy Deep Indigo Selvedge size 34 for sale.
I'm a 32 and sized up to a 34 but they're too big.
All tags and back pocket tag still in place.

Email me at Joshnordin@hotmail.com if you're interested and I'll send some photos.
I paid $170 plus shipping (About $190) but will sell for $130 shipped. Cheaper if you live in Canada.

Thanks
