Hemmed = Shorten.
Inseam is the length of the leg, measured from the crotch.
After fit is MUCH better.

How did you tailor taper the legs? Can you upload a picture of the selvedge line? Thanks.

THere was no selvedge line even prior to the work? Weird guy scratch n sniffs


^are the scratch and sniffs selvage?
Jul 13, 2012 @ 17:02
Oh, I see. My bad, thought those were selvage. Guess they aren't.
Thats pretty dope though, scratch n sniffs.

Do they actually smell all right? I'd get nauseous around the same smell everyday lol.

anyone have the japanese heritage? is the slubbyiness too much?

My friend is wondering how fucked up the fit will be if he hems his wg to 30?

I'm thinking of buying skinny guy elephant 2s, and i was wondering how to size them. I want them to fit like 511s, but just a little looser.

Get wg tts then. My deep indigo wg size 29 fit liked my 29 511, at least before I washed the levis.

skg has a tighter thigh and doesnt taper like 511

Oh, swag...you and your friend are idiots. Hemming your pants won't change the look.. And how you gonna ask a question about a fit with no pic anyways.
Jul 16, 2012 @ 18:31
Yes it would. The higher up the leg you hem the wider the leg opening would be because they're tapered. Now if they're straight from the knee down then there's no issue but he's talking about WGs. It might be 'subtle' but to people who have small feet or bought them because of the leg opening it'll make a difference
Jul 16, 2012 @ 23:21
Not really. I understand theyre tapered but it not drastic. Hemming will just clean up yhe look if he needs to hem to a 30. Ive got a size 29 hemmed to 32..no change in look. You would have to hem em to like 26 to really change the look. If ppl got smLl feet and got them for the hem size, they need to realize if theyre gonna hem, they need to re-taper or buy different jeans
. Its only common sense.

sorry noob question, but just to clarify, do the elephant 2s only come in the skinny and weird guy cuts? wanted them but was looking for a cut like the slim guy. if it comes only in those two cuts, is there any way to size either of them to get a slim straight fit?

Those are the first ones, I'm talking about the second elephants they released. Just found out they don't have them in slim guys, so does anyone know how to size on weird guys to get a slim straight ish fit?

The Grey's fade to light almost white color over time. They are extremely soft and luxurious after a couple of washes but if you want high contrast fades you're really going to have to beat them up and hold out that first wash for as long as possible. My pair fits slightly slimmer than most my other weird guys. They are very difficult to photograph (a flash will wash out any contrast, same with direct sun, etc.) and I have seen very few pics on the web of any faded pairs. This is the only pic of mine that I have uploaded to my Flikr account and it isn't too great. This pic is true to color though, and if you compare and contrast with your new pair you'll see that the color lightens significantly after some wear and wash.

idk if u saw my post a couple pages back but I got mine shortened and tapered. Weird guys btw.

After 2 trips to the tailor, 1 for getting shortened, and 1 for getting tapered, I finally have the fit I wanted from my TTS WGs. Here's a before and after.
