So heres the deal, i want to get some APCs but I have no idea what im doing really. I have pretty big thighs, like 23-24 inches around so i normally got for a size 33-34 in most low quality jeans (wearing some old navy right now haha). However I am also 6'2" so my legs are long. I was thinking of getting NCs in size 33 cuz of the 36 inch inseam which seemed like a good thing for a guy like me, and also the 11.5 inch thigh. this is all according to Context so any experience IRL would help. Also, the thighs will stretch a little bit right?

stupid question, but stacks; do you guys mess with em or just let em happen? i feel like messing with them would be wayyyy to hard, but i dont want it to look shitty either. (btw theyre just ub 201's so its not that big of a deal, but its my first selvedge so whatever.)

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.

alright, thanks for the railcar tip, but back to the WGs the thighs on the jeans that I am wearing right now are around 12 inches (33 waist), and i like them. the jeans i just got (levis) have a 32 waist and a 11.5 thigh. their a little tight tho. the WGs in 31 have a 11.75 thigh according to BlueOwl. that seemed like a pretty happy medium, and if nothing else it would stretch at least a little bit, like .25 of an inch in the thighs. seem right?

i was just gonna get standard indigos at karmaloop, since they are cheap, to make sure I like them. if i do I'll get more/go to a better brand like APC. for now I'm just at the trying out raw denim stage.

so they are vanity sized AND they stretch, correct? I am about to pull the trigger on size 31 weird guys (my true waste is 33) and I'm wondering if that is all i have to do, or if i should size down more?

So i am 6'2"ish and 175ish lbs, normally a size 32-33 in levis 511s, (the 32s are a little tight, but i just got them and havent even taken the tag of yet so they havent worn in at all.) and i was wondering what I should get from naked and famous. I was thinking Weird guy, cuz i have slightly larger thighs, and i was thinkin either 30-31... what do you guys think. also how much should I expect them to stretch. I'm not to worried about the waist, but the thighs.

*NOTE btw, i was thinking 31s because I just got a pair of 32 Levi's 511 that sorta fit (i didn't like the fit that much which is why im back here, haha) and i figured if 31s fit like a 32 of average jeans, then they will be a little tight and then stretch out. if that logic is faulty, some one should let me know. And also, will 1% elastic (in the Levi's) make them stretch a lot more than the UBs when I wear them?

(sorry for the re-post) hey, so i wanted to try selvedge jeans and these were an obvious choice cus theyre cheap. so i was wondering what fit i should get. I kinda want a skinnier fit, but im 6’2" 175 pounds, not super skinny. the jeans i mostly wear now are levis 511 size 33, and i like them, theyre a little loose but they have a skinnier shape to them. anyways, what I was thinking was either a size 31 or 32 in tapereds? I like the idea of the thigh space but still having that small leg opening on the bottom. none of the jeans I wear right now are longer than 34's cuz where I shop just doesnt have them (Kohls) so the idea of a 35 inch inseam seems great, but is that long enough for me to achieve some stacking? or would I have to go to UB101s to get that?

hey, so i am new to raw denim but really want to get some Nudies, and was wondering what to get/how to size. my favorite jeans right now are Levi’s 511 waist: 33 inseam: 32 rise: 9 thigh: 13 knee: 8.5 opening: 8 (I used http://blueowlworkshop.blogspot.ca/2010/01/blue-owl-measuring-guide-denim.html to measure them) they are slightly tapered, and a tiny bit loose, I can fit two fingers the long way in the waist, but they are pretty comfy. I kinda want a tapered look, so i was thinking Slim Jimm, but then maybe i thought somethin else, I dunno. what do you all think?
