First, they are just jeans..so you wont mess anything up. That's the thing with raw denim, they all come out unique to it's wearer and what they do in them. You can wash, soak them when ever and how often you want. With my N&F I soaked them earlier than most would but I'm going to be washing/soaking these more than I'm going to with my APC's which I'm going to hold off for as long as possible.

 

But I suggest getting a pair of Naked & Famous even if you're paying full price. I think average pair would cost around $150 so save a few more bucks or order from ********* with a discount code which is usually 20% off. Blue Owl would be another great place. They both offer exchanges so you can return for different sizes if need be. You can also find good deals in the classified section.

So I've found some of the Nudie coated jeans (on eBay). They are L34 though, whereas I am L32. Will these be ok to get tailored and made shorter? Obviously I've done it with other jeans but wasn't sure if everything else remains the same with these?

Thanks for the advice. 

 

I actually was interested in Naked & Famous, though I am planning to wear these jeans to the office on occasion and am not thrilled about the subtle naked woman on the back tag, though I suppose I will primarily be wearing untucked polos with it anyway. Maybe I'm thinking too hard ha.

 

What was the first online store you mentioned? It appears to be starred out. I will definitely look at Blue Owl.

If I'm a size 32 in the Slim Jim fit by Nudie, would I also be a 32 in the New Standard by APC?  Or should I size down 1?  I'm typically a 33 in any other kind of jeans/pants.

How do black raw denim fade? I've never seen pics of it at rawrdenim.com

Just so I have it right, go down 1 from the slim jim (32) to a size 31 in the APC New Standard?  From what I've gathered that should provide me with a standard fit, whereas if I went down to a 29 or a 30 it would be a more narrow fit?  Also, I'm guessing they'll stretch out, so if they are tight in the beginning that wouldn't be the end of the world.

 

Edit:  Found this from Context Clothing...I'll do this when I get home. 

 

Surefire Denim Fit Move:
Take your favorite fitting pair of jeans and measure them, then compare those numbers to the ones on the measurement chart. Order the size that measures an inch smaller at the waist than your jeans to account for stretch.

What cut of Nudie jeans?  Slim Jim? Grim TIm?

 

If they're Slim Jims, you might want to hem them.  Excesive stacking on Slim Jims looks sloppy.  If they're a different cut of Nudie and they taper more to the ankle, you'll be able to get away with more stacking.

You can cover her with a belt, as well.

Final question from a jean noob: A lot of these raw jeans, I've noticed, all come in one long length, as if to leave you to decide what to do with the extra fabric.

 

I prefer wearing jeans to the office on casual fridays and prefer just a medium break, not excess fabric stacking on my shoes.

 

 

Anyway, I've noticed that a lot of raw jeans brands actually *don't* have a wavy/ uniquely styled hemline --- at least unless my eyes deceive me. For Naked & Famous, for instance, the hem looks the same as the rest of the fabric up the jeans.

 

In other words, I'm planning to hem these once I purchase them. An original hem wouldn't be necessary, given that it would look the same as a regular hem on this particular brand, would it not? Just wondering. I'd prefer not to spend an extra $20 if not necessary on hemming.

I'm looking for a pair of Dark Gray Raw Selvedge jeans that fit similar to the APC NS, can anyone recommend a jean that fits what I'm looking for?
post #18433 of 20892

OK, so I've been looking for a while and I need help. I'm 6'8, and I wear a 38 x 34 in jeans. I'm not looking for skinny jeans, but a slim fit, with a somewhat narrow leg opening, so I guess a taper jean. Please, hit me with some suggestions.

They are Thin Finns.

Will they look ok on my as I'm tall and very skinny? They aren't skin tight are they? I don't want to look like Russell Brand or anything!

That wavy/ uniquely styled hemline that you speak of is referred to as "roping". On raw denim, that roping effect only comes after some wear ... along with whiskers and combs, etc.
