The Elephant 3 is 4oz heavier than the Deep Indiglo. But it's only 5 dollars more. Shit don't make sense to me.

Are all naked and famous non-selvedge denim unsanforized or sanforized? I have a pair of raw weird guy soft stretch(non selvedge)..waist is kinda big. Trying to figure out the next step to shrink them a bit bc the fit is great but requires a belt. 


Also emailed N&F about this. Idk how helpful they are but hopefully they can assist me.
Almost all N&F is sanforized. Some of their collaboration denims aren't, but it will be specifically mentioned in the item description if that is the case. The waist of your jeans will tighten up a little bit when you wash them but it will stretch right back out due to your body pushing on it. If you want it tighter I think youre only option would be sizing down.

I just bought a pair of Weird Guy Okayama Spirits. Apparently they are hot-pressed to reduce shrinkage a little bit. Wondering if I would still need to pre-soak or if I could just wear them and not have them touch water until the first wash.

What concerns me is if I soak them and the dye "sets" on the jeans and then fading becomes much more difficult?

I could have this all wrong...just talking from my experience in the past. Can anyone help me out?

Hi guys, I'm looking to buy one pair of N&F that will last me a very long time. I'm willing to spend more for one of their more expensive models if it will be more durable, I'm looking for one pair of jeans to last me for years.


I'm 5'11" 200 lbs. My best fitting pair of pants are my size 34 Supreme chinos, if any of you  are familiar with Supreme sizing and could translate it to N&F I would really appreciate it. I have pretty thick thighs and calves from weight lifting but I'm not fat around the waist. Accordingly, I do not want skinny fit jeans because my legs are not skinny, but I also do not want baggy jeans.


Any suggestions on sizing, as well as suggestions on specifically what model of N&F would fit my needs are greatly appreciated.

^They have a slim fit (slim guy) and tapered fit (weird guy) which may suit you the best

Looking to get some Skinny Guys in an Indigo color that will show significant fades after around 6 months, any recommendations? Already own elephant 3 weird guys, broken twill slim guys, and duck selvedge weird guys, time for some change

Are these jeans a good starter pair for raw denim? I normally wear a 32 in the waist for normal jeans, so what size should I size down/up for these jeans? Also, since the inseam is 35, I'm thinking of hemming them to 33, any tips about hemming?

^^
13-16oz for starters
 more oz=faster fades 
22oz ely's FTW 
Mar 30, 2014 @ 21:22
Go with a heavier denim and a little darker shade of indigo. 
Mar 30, 2014 @ 22:30
Can you post some pictures of how your LHT fades look right now?

Should I get my weird guys hemmed? My stacks are flaring out to the side and its look ugly tongueface

Elephant 2s 17 months. 1 ocean wash, 1 soak. 
Before soak



After soak

How much did your Elephants stretch in the waist?  My shit is terrible.  
Apr 04, 2014 @ 20:19
They stretched quite a lot actually. They fit snug still but wish they were tighter around the waist.

I guess I just have to really commit to breaking them in and stop being so impatient.  You've inspired me.  Lol.

Weird Guy fit is similar to what APC fit????
Personally never worn APCs but from what I can tell and read, new cures are the closest you can get to the weird guy fits in N&F. Feel free to correct me

Thanks for the advice. I want to get my Naked and Famous jeans hemmed to 33" since they offer free hemming . Is there a accepted method of hemming the jeans without damaging the selvedge?

I'm just throwing words out there to help all those search aggregators. I am a true to size size 28. I wear 27 in nudie slim Jim and thin Finn. I got two NF, both skinny guy, one is left hand twill in 27w 13.75oz and deep indigo 15oz in 28w. They both were awful first on, couldn't button everything and just awful. As is to be expected. After a day in the left hand twill 27w, they have been stretching a shit load. They're now comfortable to wear, after initially almost impossible to out on. The 28w deep indigos are 3 days in and, although have stretched a little, still feel like bricks.

Here are some Okayamas Post Soak.



Love the fit! Just received my second pair. First pair were to tight sz. 33 sized up to 34 and they still seem about the same in the waist. So my question was did they shrink the full in. they said they would? Mine fit just about identical to this so the inseam is also another concern of mine and I would like to have atleast a little cuff. Im assuming you are probably 5'11 6'0? Thanks in adavance
