Just throwing this out there to see if anyone with the same problem can offer some advice.. Happens with all dyed and unwashed denim, but hasn't really been addressed here.

Some of the indigo dye on my N&Fs rubs off onto the shoe tongue. Not a problem on darker shoes, but on the white tongue it can be sort of a hassle. Warm water and soap has been my go-to, and prevents the problem depending on what surface your stain is on.

Edit: After searching around a bit more it seems that this problem is basically unavoidable. Gonna go with the "tape your cuffs" trick and see how that works.
You could always try a soak and get ride of some of that excess indigo. Also, what kind of shoes are we talking? I've had a lot of luck cleaning my white canvas Purcells and Vans by doing an overnight OxyClean soak.
Thanks, that's actually what I was just thinking.. I'll give it a try. And it's happened to the white tongue on my all black Supreme x AF1s, and my Nike SB WPFs. The WPFs have a suede tongue, so I've had luck simply brushing it off. Removes most of the indigo, but still not all of it. Taping cuffs doesn't help because it's the outside of the jean that is making contact w the tongue. Gonna try a soak on the bottom 2-3 inches of the jeans, I'll let you know how it works.

So the heavier the denim the faster they fade? Or is it the lighter denim that fades faster?
The lighter fades denim faster.

How many sizes should I go down in WGs? I e-mailed N&F and they did recommend sizing down 1 for a slim fit or TTS for a relaxed fit but all over the internet I see alot of people saying you should go down 2 in WGs and even on Tate and Yoko (the site N&F themselves recommend) size down 2 in their sizing chart for WGs.

I sized down one on mine. The fit is fine everywhere but the rise, which is a little snug.

I would start off sizing down 1. I went tts on deep indigo and still got a skinny fit. Any other comp. That labels their jeans as skinny is pretty much the fit. I'm tiny so it's not tight any where for me. I should went down 1 tho.

Thanks for the replies, so you sized down 1 from the tag size or the actual waist size? On this webiste http://tateandyoko.com/Naked-Famous-Weird-Guy-Indigo-Selvedge.html it says there's a difference between those sizes.

Having a hard time finding the Weird Guy Indigo Selvedge in size 31, it's sold out here on hypebeast, tate and yoko and some other places don't accept PayPal which I use. I'm located in Europe (Netherlands), anyone knows any online stores I can try for this model?

Those deep indigos are nice! Wish I had combs, either I soaked too soon or just not enough wear. I only put about 20 hrs a week in them for almost a yr. the front looks pretty much like yours. Wish I had a nice camera to take some pics

I haven't seen any, really. I bought a pair and ended up returning them because I got worried about how they were going to look.

You first bought them and then thought about how they'd turn out? :D

Yeah. They were an impulse purchase when I was trying on a bunch of jeans. I was going to get APCs and the guy sold my pair while I was trying on a different size, so I went with the N&F.

Washed my left hand twill in washer then dried in dryer. I kept on wearing them anyway and for awhile they made some progress. Awhile I go posted and asked if I should just go get a new pair or keep wearing them, and some one told me only time will tell. So I kept wearing them and 6 month mark was last weekend and I washed them, but there wasn't much indigo loss. Nothing changed in color, but the combs kinda got reset (don't know how else to describe), so i decided to just get a new pair and was wondering which type would fade fastest? So far I've chosen deep indigo, the 10 oz light weight denim, or natural indigo for summer.
