The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

Jul 31, 2012 @ 07:39
Hello! I've also posted this in the nudie denim thread, I hope this doesn't make me uncool and awful!

I'm looking to buy a new pair of raw selvage jeans, I'm looking at these two models

Nudie Grim Tim Open Dry Selvage http://shop.nudiejeans.com/en/product/913/open-dry-selvage

or

Naked and Famous Skinny Guy Natural Revival http://www.nakedandfamousdenim.com/collection/men/skinnyguy/natural-indigo-revival-selvedge.html

I can get either for approx £70, I don't want to spend much more than that. I know the N&F fit is slimmer than the Nudies, but I'm ok with either fit, which jeans would you recommend in terms of quality?

Thanks guys.


Hey man,
no it doesn't make you uncool posting the same stuff in different threads but registering in need of an answer makes. tongueface

to the question: the nudie Grim Tims were also my first pair of raws.
I don't know the natural indigos but I can tell for my deep indigos that I feel the quality of my n&f pair is way better.
although the natural indigo is somewhat lighter than my deep indigos but I'd probably go with n&f.

call me corny or stupid but I'm also not a huge fan of running around town with the same brand like most of the kids out there.

So i was just wondering what the cheapest place to buy naked and famous would be right now, so far it seems to be Karmaloop with their 20% off code, but if there is a spot where they are on sale I would love to know.
Aug 01, 2012 @ 22:26
Just happens to be random when sales occur if it isn't from Karmaloop. You could try the sales rack at Barney's if there's one around you, found a red core out there for $110.

Just copped some N&F Skinny Guy Deep Indigo W30, was wondering if i should get it hemmed maybe 1-2 inches? not sure here are my fit pics.. sorry for awful quality my blackberry is all i gots..






Aug 01, 2012 @ 23:52
sorry for being a noob but on karmaloop, What is the length if you get a 28 or 29 in skinny guy?


Most skinny guys are around 37 inch inseam
okay a karmaloop rep just emailed me back saying a 29 waist is like a 29 or 30 length in skinny guy. Is this true?

Are you sure it wasn't 29 or 30 waist? None of them are that short of inseam.
Aug 02, 2012 @ 00:56
yea that's what they said. That's what I need too I need a 29/30 but I'm hesitant on ordering them because I don't want to order a 29 and they send me a 32 length
Aug 02, 2012 @ 02:50
The lengths are definitely not 30, always like 36+. I'm a 29/30 also and I just got a pair hemmed. No problem and works out fine. You won't find a pair that has a 30 inch inseam naturally.

You have to hem them to get them that short. Raw denim pretty much always comes in crazy long inseams, to allow people to do whatever they want.

I'm thinking about buying the Raspberry scented jeans.
But not sure what size to get.

When I bought the skinnyguy stretch jeans I always bought size 33
Last month I bought the Broken Twill skinnyguy. And had to buy the 34 for it to fit the way I wanted.

Should I buy a 33 or 34 weirdguy Raspberry scented jeans?
I also tried on the weird guy green selvedge and that was 33. It fitted good.

Usually size down for weird guys. My friend just bought the raspberries and he bought a 30 (his true waist is 33), and after stretching they're perfect. but if you tried a 33 and it was what you wanted, get that.

So how do the wg and sg differ in fit?
Aug 03, 2012 @ 02:09
^werid guys are tapered and skinny guys are skinny

Can't really see it. But its really all personal preference. Do you like stacking? Or you can always just cuff it twice if you like.

For those that have them.. How are the dirty fades coming along?
Any pics?
How dark is the indigo? Some of the webstores pictures look a little lighter.
Aug 03, 2012 @ 20:51
Trying to buy a pair of N&F jawns (this will be my first pair of selvedge) however idk if a tailor will be able to shorten them so theyfit better? and if he can would it just look bad



im thinking about these greens, sound amazing! should i get sz 30 and since their vanity the waste will be 32?
also how have they faded if any for you man?
green is my favorite color and i feel like these will be the shizer for me

ive never had a pair of N&F so how do the WG fit? similar to apc NS????
tons of questions i know but i know you guys got my back!

I ordered a pair of WG from Karmaloop, but they sent me a skinny guy instead. I tried them on and they're so tight that i cant even pull em up all the way without struggling. I wanted the WGs because i knew tapered would've fit my thighs better. should i keep them and see if they stretch/fit or should i just see if i can return them? Will they even stretch?

At least you got a pair. I ordered a pair of WG's from Karmaloop and they sent me some ugly DGK Camo shorts instead. Should finally be getting my pair in on monday and im hoping they didnt screw it up again.

BTW, did you size down on the WG? Since they sent you Skinny Guys, did they send you the size you ordered?

yeah i sized down one. They gave me the right size. I ordered a pair of "Skinny Weird Guy" from them, thinking they were WGs with a typo, but they were SG. It's weird because there was already a SG of the same color on the site.

thanks for the info. I was thinking of getting some SG's next. So you wouldnt recommend sizing down one on them?

idk about skinny guys, but i heard sizing down 1 on WG is the way to go.

haha seriously? I'd understand an incorrect size or fit but that sucks bro. and back to the original post, if it's difficult to fit in wg's, sg's are gonna be worse I'd imagine
Aug 04, 2012 @ 03:43
well idk how the WG's would've fit because this is my first pair of raw denim. I'm probably gonna exchange these for some WGs if i can.

I sized down 1 on my WG and this sounds like good news. Dealing with karmaloops returns sucks. They told me that as soon as they saw what i was returning to them was in transit, they would ship my denim out. They lied and waited to receive the damn shorts (5 days after) and ship out my denim 2nd day air bit it doesn't matter because i still gotta wait until Monday. Smh.

I'm thinking about getting the left hand twill selvedge skinny guys, should I size up or stay true to size? Also does any one know the inseam on them?

It really depends on how you want it to fit. You should probably measure your best fitting pairs of jeans then compare measurements. You can find measurements on here http://www.blueowl.us/scripts/psp/VB_Bridge3.dll?VBPROG=\bin\shop.prodt.detail&SKU=7921001
But usually, if you want a really skinny fit, size down 1. True to size for a normal skinny fit.

@undefeatedjk thanks man I'll probably end up going true to size
