My Deep Indigos close to their 6 months mark (1st wear was 12/25).
Not sure how I should go on with em.
Gotta decide between a) cold soaking them (they are a little dirty indeed), b) wear em for another 6 months or c) get a pair of nf x oni weird guys in rotation which I fell in love with a little time ago.
What do y'all recommend?

Here are some additional fit pics.
I am actually pretty confident with the fit, although a little "diaper ass" appereared, due to the fact I lost some 3-4 pounds since winter. but I dont wanna stop/slow down the breaking in process only because of that..

Fit looks perfect, except for the stacking & cuff, but that's my personal preference. & if you haven't decided yet, soak them, water is good for denim.

I feel you. I'll double-cuff my next pair for sure. one can get the pair tailored at my denim shop for free but they can't chain stitch them.

What do you y'all mean by messed up stacks? The front or the back part?
Didn't really care about em, just wore those badboys.

Hi, I'm new here and I'm looking to get some N&F weird guys in the elephant2 wash. My waist is 33-33.5" and upper thighs are 23" I'm thinking I'd get a tagged size 32 or 31. Any size recommendations?

What I meant was cuffing & a lot of stacking at the same time. Either cuff with very minimal stacking or stack without cuffing.

don't downsize a lot with that stiff denim or you won't be able to button them up at all . . . you might want to look at a 33 if the thigh fits. check karmaloop with a 20% discount code from google to save a lot of money compared to full retail.

Get a size 32. You have big thighs to size down anymore! Theyll be really uncomfortable with the low rise and all. 32 should fit perfect. I got a 32 wierd guy indigo/indigo for sale if you r interested. Brand new with tags. $110 shipped USA!

Get a size 34 for a good comfortable fit. Sizing down on the Elephant 2's are just wayy too uncomfortable and not worth it just for some "sick fadez".

do you guys size the painter denim the same as the normal indigo jeans? not sure if these stretch more or less than the others. also, does anyone know if the painter denim comes washed or if it is raw, does it fade at all or stay pretty much the same color as it comes?

It should be raw denim, it's been around a month and it's starting to show some fading. Also I sized down two on my second pair because of the stretching. The first pair got ruined bad because of an accident, but when I sized down one, they still stretched a lot. Still feeling comfortable with just two down instead of one.

I'm going to be getting my first pair of N&Fs which will also be my first pair of raw denim, so excuse the dumb question.

I'm not into getting any crazy fades and quite honestly I want to get the texture of my jeans to be like any prewashed jeans preferably with no fades actually. Any way to do that? What'll happen if i throw them in the wash the day I get them?

I'm not sure if I understand what you want. Do just want prefaded jeans? Just get prewashed jeans or buy some used apcs via their butler program. Or do you want jeans that don't produce crazy contrast fades? If so, washing your jeans regularly.

I like N&Fs, (for the fit, the branding, etc.) but I really don't care much for raw denim. I was wondering if I wash my jeans right away will they be just like any pair of prewashed jeans?

They will fade less and less the more times you wash them. I would hot soak or wash them when you get them to get rid of the excess dye. Then just wear them like your regular jeans and wash regularly. That should produce a more subtle /a lot less contrasting fade.

if you keep wearing them, yes. All jeans eventually get softer.

thanks man, and washing and drying them right away won't ruin the color or anything right?

no problem, I would soak them and line dry if you want to keep them stiff and not ruin the color right away. The less you agitate them, the less color will be lost. If you have anymore questions pm me.
