I don't wash my denim jackets. If anything, ever, I'd dry clean.

What cuts are you looking at specifically? Of all the jeans recommended here I can't imagine you have some kind of body type that wouldn't be accommodated.

If your body type really is that odd or you're just super anal about the fit, then you can go custom or send them to a denim repair shop that would know how to deconstruct the waist and bring in the yoke.

How can you say this and follow it up with the question below? You might want to look into fits before you start looking into brands...

The guy above you is in the same boat price-wise and a page or two earlier several ideas were given.

Does anyone know a place that does chain stitch hemming in the DC metro area or inexpensively by mail?

Of the two brands, I think Naked & Famous makes better stuff, but the way you describe your thighs, the only cut of theirs that you are likely to fit into is the Regular Guy, maybe the Slim Guy. Everything else by them will probably be too tight in the thighs for you if you want the waist to fit.

People with big thighs generally don't look good in slim jeans, that's what looser cuts are for.

The going rate for a chainstitch hem is about $25 per pair of jeans. I know that Denim Doctors accepts mail-in hemming orders for $25 plus the cost of shipping. Blue in Green is another option, they do it for $30 plus the cost of shipping.

Paging whodini and denim experts. I want to get this pair of raw Warehouse jeans on the BiG site.

The measurements on the size 30 would work perfectly on me. But these are raw jeans and will shrink after I wash them for the first time. In the past, I've always gotten one-wash jeans.

What size I should size up to in order to get approximately the following measurements after the first wash? W 32 to 33, leg opening 8.5.

The site says to expect to 6-8% of shrinkage. Does this mean I should go for the pair with the 35.5 inch waist? (35.5 * 0.92 = ~33.6'')

How big of a leg opening would I end up with?

I understand that this thing isn't an exact science, but would appreciate some pointers.

I was under the impression that fits varied so much by brand that there was no point, and I don't know of anywhere local where I can try on Naked and famous (uniqlo there probably is).

I have bought denim maybe three times in my adult life. I've never been big on jeans unless I'm working outdoors, and then its carharts.

So I think the pair I'm looking at is the regular guy. I'll probably just do what I do with everything else then, buy it and get them shortened and the bottom half of the leg tapered to where I like the fit.

 

Thank you both for the info.

Is there any consensus on sizing for this year's Wings + Horns slim fit raw jeans? True-to-size or down one?
post #17197 of 20234

Pulled the trigger on those Naked and Famous. Got them with a 34" inseam so I can try out this cuff thing everyone on here seems to love so much.

Nevermind, found it in the W+H thread. Sounds like TTS is a safer choice.

I wouldn't bother asking the store about post wash measurements that they probably don't have (or they'd put them online) or that you could do, and have done, just using basic math.

If you don't understand how unsanforized will play out, a quick look on the site explains everything. For just about every brand, they offer unwashed and one wash versions. Take a look at the other Warehouse models like this, including one that's also a 14oz denim. I wouldn't take the measurements as gospel, but rather as a rough guide as to what to expect.

Do you happen to know any retail sites that have detailed measurements for LVC jeans?
