I want to get some Japan Heritage 2s. Do I soak upon receiving them to get the shrinking done? How much should I expect in the waist and length shrink because it says they will shrink a full size after washing? Do thighs/knees shrink too with unsanforized?

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.

Feb 07, 2013 @ 17:29
Probably less often than Karmaloop.

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.
Feb 09, 2013 @ 01:28
I sized down one on mine. The fit is fine everywhere but the rise, which is a little snug.
Feb 09, 2013 @ 06:18
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.
Feb 09, 2013 @ 16:47
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?

Skinny Guy Deep Indigo,

Worn for about a year. Got them 5/19/11

i got the black power stretch they haven't had a "wax effect" for me
Feb 10, 2013 @ 22:55


Spring 2013 shirts. Definitely wouldn't mind owning a few of these.
Feb 11, 2013 @ 06:39
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

Thanks how long you had yours? i was thinking about copping me a pair
Feb 11, 2013 @ 19:53
my japan heritage in 29 stretched almost to the same waistsize like the deep indigos in 30 did. that's pretty bad. :/

Beste Grüße aus Deutschland!

Feb 11, 2013 @ 21:27
And what suze would that be? My DI barely stretched, maybe an inch. But they weren't super tight either.
Feb 12, 2013 @ 05:21
Hot washing my SkG Broken Twills. 165 wears. Owned for almost 7 months. Sooo much indigo loss... I'll post pics tomorrow.

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

Feb 12, 2013 @ 17:17
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.

I'm working a pair in now, been about a month. I'll post some pics in a month or so. Sorry I couldnt be more helpful.

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.
