Naked & Famous Selvedge Chino - many sizes, $145 shipped - Page 2

post #16 of 32
im close to pulling the trigger on these, but im in the same boat as teger. I have a 34.5 waist; are 32's gonna be stretched and hanging off my ass in a week?

I wouldn't worry about stretching - it's much less of an issue with N&F than with APC. I find that my N&F jeans don't stretch out a crazy amount. And they go back pretty much to their original size after washing. If anything, I'd think that the 32 might be a bit small for you. You might want to grab the 33's.

So, if I need a waist that measures out to aprx. 15.5-16, but def. not more than that, still go with 32? I wear 32 in KMW 1980, and 31 in 1950, just for a reference....

thanks for the tip.

Arghhh I'm torn, I don't know if I want the 32 or 33. I'm a 34.5 dead on though, so if there's any give or stretch whatsoever I may want to go with the 32. For reference I wear a 33 Flathead f380 which measures out to 34.5 in the waist post stretch.

I don't own these but I wouldn't recommend sizing down like normal jeans for these. These are chino's at the heart of it all and I don't know about you guys, but I prefer my chino pants to have some room. For instance, on the Crate Hamilton Chino's I own, I sized up one from my jean size and it turned out well since the material they are contructed from doesn't lend itself to stretching like normal jeans do, plus the rise was cut lower than these. If I were to buy I would stick to the proper waist size while ensuring the thighs will fit for you. Just a thought.

^^A good point. It's a little tricky with these, I think, as they are sort of in between. They are not cut like a chino w/ side seam pockets and a twill fabric (more inherent drape, less stiffness), so you end up wondering if they are going to stretch or not, since they seem like they will fit more like a jean/5-pocket pant.

Anyway, if the BiG measurements are close, and one can expect minimal stretch, then that should be enough to make an educated call. I think....

Updated: Size 33 and 34 are sold out. I've still got decent stock in the other sizes.

Thanks to everyone who ordered! If you'd like a pair, just drop me a PM.

Cheers,
Mike

I just received these from Mike, and they are awesome chinos. This is my first pair of Naked and Famous, and the fit is great. I'm 5'7" and weigh 155. Size 28 fit perfect except for the length.

Thanks again Mark - I'm so glad that they worked for you!

After long last, I've got these up on my website for easy ordering. We're sold out of size 28, but I was able to get an additional size 33 and 34. So we've got most sizes covered.

And I took a quick shot of the selvedge. It's like buttah.

Check the second link in my sig for my FS thread where I sold a pair of these in size 29 recently. I have measurements from there that you can reference.

I just measured them at 34.5. I've found the BIG measurements to be accurate each time that I check them.

Hi there,

Just checking in to see if you still have stock for the Naked & Famous Selvedge Chino in sizes 28-30? Also, do you ship internationally to Singapore and does the $25 shipping charges still apply to this destination? And Lastly, how do I go about making the transaction once I've decided to purchase these pants.

What size for a true 30" waist?
