Just got these my first pair of raw denim. NDG straight cut 36x36, I am 6'1 190 pounds. Any comments on fit? Should I keep them long or have them hemmed?

Did you soak or wash them yet? I always wait to hem until I soak them. They can shrink mightily in the inseam, even sanforized denim (not sure if NGD is sanforized or not). EDIT: As far as the length looks, you've got a fairly standard stack there. Is that what you want? It looks OK to me.

Really, maybe this is a preference thing, but the Eternals look ridiculous, cuff too large and still looks like there are inches to spare bunching up.

Not attacking your opinion, just questioning these specifically in hopes to learn why those are considered a good fit.

Murdoc, I actually had the Eternals tailored recently and will post photos this weekend. The changes are pretty dramatic.

IIIrd Icon, your jean collection is seriously the nicest I have ever seen! I was wondering if you could post some of your tips on how to care for jeans, from raw state to very worn in.

tnx for the huge compliment on the jeans, man. but, as far as proper break in & care for jeans, there's no singular tried & proven way. every1's got their own little kinks & quirks to it. the collage of fades, tears, frays, stains, reinforcement stitches, patches, etc.__ make each pair unique and personal. i could go through identical pairs of jeans [in succession] and come out with 2 entirely different evos/results.

early on, i knew the toughness & roughness [like burlap] of the denim seemed an overkill for the 100% cotton thread, so, i figured i should not treat them like breaking in [a usual] raw denim pair. the denim was ultra stiff and heavily laden with starch. breaking them in [as is] would have been like operating a machine without lubrication. i had to either double wash right away to flush out most of the starch & start to temper the yarns [on both fabric & thread] or take a more leisurely break in process [and soak on shorter intertervals] until the fabric softens up to certain degree and becomes more pliant__ @which stage i can really start to rock 'em harder.

i decided on the latter cuz the denim was a new production and untried... 'afraid the waist would shrink beyond expectation. 'seemed on the 1st 3 soaks, the denim resets back to [almost] new condition and the weave got even tighter on each soak. good thing i was able to keep the waist @ a manageable 34".

don't know how the denim will behave after a full wash [and beyond], but i'm not expecting for high contrast or even for the high traffic areas to fade to white. but, there's gonna be greycasting + some massive vertical falling due to the linear slubbing.

Samurai s5000ai-10sp :: 17oz natural indigo dyed :: TTS @W33

initial 2 hotsoaks

@4 mos [effective wear] x 3 hotsoaks x 0 wash :: current measurements : w= 34, ins= 33.5 , f/r= 10, b/r= 14.25, u/t= 12, kn= 9, l/o= 8.25

current: @1 y/o = 5 mos [effective wear] x 4 soaks [3 hot + 1 warm] :: n0 wash :: n0 thread breakage [ei, due to preventive reinforcement on pressure points + "tempering" by muliple soaks]
