The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

How much will a pair of N&F Slim Guy shrink? I have a 36" waist and bought a pair of 34, but it's still very loose pre-shrink. I am probably giving up 2 inches and can fit both fist. Question: 1 - How much will it shrink after I put it through the hot water/air dry process? 2 - How much will it expand/stretch after the hot water/air dry process? 3 - Any good sites where I can find a chart for Actual Waist vs Jean Company's Vanity Size? Thanks! Probably going to have to exchange the pair for a size 33 or 32 (more likely)

How much does a pair of N&F Slim Guy Selvedge shrink? I have a size 36" waist, and bought a size 34. The fit pre-shrink fit is very loose (probably giving up 2 inches and could easily pull them down if I'm not wearing a belt). Question: 1 - How much shrink can I expect? 2 - After shrink and dry, how much will it expand after I begin to wear it? I'm thinking of returning it, either for a size 33 or 32 (probably this).

[Quote] 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. http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Famous-Natural-Indigo-Selvedge/dp/B007QD96PE/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1339016163&sr=8-17 Grabbed the largest size, 34 (TTS minus 2)

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. Pic from the front - http://i.imgur.com/rTafT.jpg Pic from the left side - http://i.imgur.com/bWmRm.jpg Pic from the right side - http://i.imgur.com/ovCoH.jpg 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 http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProduct.jsp?product=NAKE-MJ4&c=&d=d Thanks!
