The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

Sep 11, 2013 @ 01:03
Mainly because you say that you live in Houston which is usually very hot and if you buy a pair of elephants they won't breathe as well as the deep indigo's since they are heavier. I think you have the general idea of what the elephants are going to be like and how they are going to fit, but since this is your first time its really not going to be comfortable being your first pair of raw denim. There are also cases where people have abrasions because of how heavy they are. That being said, the final product of a pair of faded deep indigo's are just as good as the elephants if not better.

I guess climate plays a big part in the higher denim weight you choose, haha.  But your opinion is very logical, thanks! You've convinced me to go with a medium-weight--which I think is probably better than going head-first with heavy weight denim when I'm completely new to the whole concept, haha.

I've been checking out so many brands from forums and other denim websites and whatnot, but from what I've seen, the fades on many of the N&F pairs are pretty remarkable.

I recently just discovered Ande Whall (Roy looks pretty neat too), and damn, I'm pretty tempted to spend that extra cash!  But $35 for shipping, and the fact that I'm purchasing my first pair of raw denim ever..even though I know my measurements, I'm quite skeptical about jumping the gun.  I'll probably stick to a pair of N&F, or maybe even 3Sixteen's (ST-211?!).

P.S. Anyone know how the fades are between Indigo vs Deep Indigo hues (for simplicity's sake, let's assume same denim weight), specifically from N&F brand?  I'd assume deeper/darker indigo has higher contrast fades.

I bought the weird guys and sized down one. They were pretty tight at first but kinda loosened up. I'd go tts for a relaxed kinda fit and size down one for a tighter fit.

Got left hand twills for $85 shipped from Karmaloop when they had the 30% off sale. Too bad they don't ship until October 16th.

So I just came back from Nordstrom Rack. If you wear size 30 and below in Weird Guy, you can get a shit ton for 70 bucks each

I went with 33 weird guys with a 36 waist and it fits pretty well.  Really tight for the first few wears but its comfortable now.

Need help on sizing with Skinny Guys.

I'm thinking of purchasing the skinny guy vintage dungaree: http://www.blueowl.us/product/naked-and-famous-skinny-guy-vintage-dungaree-975oz-selvedge-denim/

I'm a 32 waist, I normally wear levi 511s with a 33 waist always needing a belt. The waist measurements for the vintage dungaree Size 30 is 31.5". If I purchase the size 30, would the jeans stretch out at all, possibly leaving me with a perfect waist fit on the vintage dungaree?

Thanks to any reply+help

What did they have? After reading this, I went to my rack, but didn't find anything.

Could anyone post a fit pic of them in the thermochromic jeans please? I'd like to get a better idea of how they look before I consider buying a pair...I'm real iffy about that whole "changes color with heat" thing.

Weird Guy Grey Selvedge though it was in a 28.
Weird Guy Black Selvedge only one pair in a 30 which I brought.

The rest weren't Selvedge but were definitely legit N&F and were raw denim just not selvedge. Do with that what you will.

In case anyone was wondering I went TTS on a pair of weird guys, my waist is pretty much a 30 and thats what I got but it fit kinda big, I need a belt to wear them if that helps anyone. I got the Jade Selvedge pair.

In terms of color, what would you say the most comparable denim N&F has to APC? Also, I have a pair of WG LHT in 32 that have become a bit too big on me. If anyone is interested in them, they're 9 months, no wash as of now.

My waist size is 30. Do you think size 28 for the Dirty Fade in Weird Guy fit would be appropriate sizing? Please let me know!

From my experience, I've always sized down 1 on weird guys. Sizing down 2 seems too extreme...

I see where you're coming from. It does seem extreme, but it apparently depends on the kind. For instance, you should stay true to your size for the Okayama Spirit in Weird Guys, while you should size down for Left Hand Twill in Weird Guys. Blue Owl does a great job with listing the listed size with the actual waist size.

By the way, is anyone here a Dirty Fade wearer? Because the fabric of the Dirty Fade is actually comprised of brown yarn, the fading would resemble a dirty, muddy look, hence the name of the jeans. It's not your typical pair of raw denim. I really want to see how it would turn out, but there aren't that many pictures on the Internet of the fading for me to judge. I guess I could work this to my advantage since it would be great to see for myself how it would turn out without having already seen much.

Where to get NF in Belgium? I'll be visiting Brussels, Brugges and Kent so if you know any stores that carry NF in these cities please let me know!

Hey guys,

I wear a 29 in Nudie Thin Finns. From anyone's experience, for N&F Skinny Guy, should I stick with a 29?
