Need helping picking/sizing a pair. Is N&F true to size, or do they have vanity sizing. And how much to size down on selvedge jeans.

Stats - 6 feet and 185 lbs (on keto, trying to lose another 10-15, the midriff is the toughest)

Measured my waist - 36"
Last year I was wearing a pair of Levi's 527 Low Boot Cut 34 x 32 (I probably fit a 33 x 32 now).

I read an article on denim and ordered myself a pair of Levi's 501 to introduce myself to Raw/Selvedge. I got a 32 x 34 (sized down 2 on the waist, and up 2 on the inseam). I've been wearing it for the past 3-4 months at least 3-4 times a week. I have to squeeze in to get the last button on (helps with the goal of trying to lose that last bit of weight), but I have about ~2 inches on the thigh so it feels a bit loose/roomy in that area.

I'm not sure what the hard/fast rule is for picking a waist size for Naked & Famous, and that is one of my issues. I have read that the inseams are usually 35-36" to allow for stacking, tailoring etc. The other issue is to choose which style, Slim Guy, Skinny Guy or Weird Guy.

If you take a look at the pic from my front side in the 501, it looks roomy in the thighs. I want to avoid in the N&F.

Saw a pic of a model wearing N&F Deep Indigo Weird Guy, and thought this is what I want mine to look like. http://67.215.227.235/images/p/n/d/NAKE-MJ4_V1.jpg

Just got a pair of the N&F Hemp Blend SGs that were on sale instead of UBs. Man hemp feels all scratchy on the skin, wasn't really aware of that. Hopefully these turn out well.

I'll try to help you out.
1. Since you want "raw" denim, and are hoping to achieve fading, "wash" is automatically out [wash means after the dying process of the jeans, they wash it => less fading]. As your first pair, I recommend raw indigo, so no beige, gray or blacks.
From my experience, stiffer denim = more fade.

2. Keep in mind, just because a model pulls off a "fit", does not mean you can pull it off, unless you have the same proportions as the model.

3. Did you ever soak your 501? I think you'll achieve a better fit if you tried soaking them.

4. Since you want less room in your thigh, avoid Weird Guy [roomy thighs -> tapered hem]. Leaving you the option of Slim vs Skinny for a slimmer thigh. Since you're a bigger guy with a 36 waist. I would recommend either -1 Slim or +1 Skinny. From my experience, and just from lurking the threads N&F Slim and Weird are vanity size (-1/-2).

It was the last pair available at Blueowl, the measurements for it were close enough to give it a shot.

Thanks for your help.

For the 501s, I did a hot soak for about 1-2 hours and then let it air dry overnight (maybe 2 nights) before I proceeded to wear them. Just feels like there is too much room in the trunk and thighs to be a good fit. Buttons up without a fit actually.

I figure I will start off with a cheaper pair and hope the sizing works out and then adjust from there.

which fit from Naked&Famous resembles most like Thin Finns from nudie? the thin finns are perfect for me, not too baggy, not too tight.

yeah man please do post LHT pics. I've been rocking some LHT WG's for the past month or so...probably closer to 2 weeks of actual wear. (can't wear jeans to work so I put them on when I get home most nights). I love the pants but fade pics are super rare. Jay (blueowl) and Alex (T&Y) both say they are some of the easiest and best fading N&F jeans. I think I've only seen the pair that Brandon wore.

the whiskering is more noticeable in person, but i really think its cause i keep my phone in my left pocket or they're not as tight anymore.

thanks, combs are one of my favourite fades so i can't wait to see how they turn out
