Is the Gant Rugger Stick Boy denim any good?

If hand-stretching doesn't work, go industrial ... use a spreader clamp on damp denim.
The clamp could easily get you an inch ... but anything more than an inch and a half could risk tearing the button off.

Alright, I measured my best fitting jeans (H&M Drain, sized up in the waist and 2% elastine)

 

Waist: 35,4 in (Size down 1-2 in) True waist is around 34,5 in (measured at where my boxer-briefs elastic is.

Rise: 11 in

Thigh: 11,5 in

Knee: 7,9 in

Calf: 7,3 in

Opening: 6,7 in

Inseam: 34 in

Is there any jean which has the same measurements with a waist like specified?

Fit above knees is good. Would like something a bit more tapered from knee to opening.
Suggestions or opinions?

Does anyone own the N&F x Kamikaze Attack? If so how is it and any fading pictures? Is it worth the price or is there something better for indigo/indigo?

OR 

 

http://shop.nudiejeans.com/en/product/2105/org-dry-brokentwill

 

Questions:

 

- Difference between dry dirt organic vs dry brokentwill?

- Slim Jim vs Grim tim? (Another thread mentioned that Grim Tim= more thigh space but slim jim is looser??? how does that work)

 

 

I am looking for something slimming but not too tight (need room to breathe). I'm about 5'8-5'9, 160lb~ and a relatively slim but not skinny build.

I have had 2 pairs of Slim Jims. One is the dry w/ stretch denim. They shrunk a lot after washing and didn't stretch back, I have 34/34 and after a wash they fit almost exactly the same as my Grim Tim 32/32 dry open selvage, they are much smaller than the numbers in the fit guide. I also had a pair of Slim Jim black raw/dry, 100% cotton, they fit like the Nudie fit guide says and didn't shrink at all when washed, so I sold them as the fit was too loose overall. I just got the Grim Tims so haven't washed but they fit like the guide says and are a much closer fit through the legs vs the Slim Jims and the leg opening is much smaller. Also depends what size you choose, they are sized differently so you'd likely choose a SJ that's one size larger than the GT. Also, if you look around you can find GTs in selvage denim at a decent price, I got mine for $90 and they are regularly on ebay for half of retail ($130ish). SJ has not been made in selvage.

 

tl;dr... I'd go with Grim Tim, SJ has too large of a leg opening.

 

Broken twill is different weave vs std. right hand twill, try googling for more info, it's not easy to explain without pics.

thanks for the response. there just doesnt seem to be any consistency with nudie fit pics... ive seen fit pics of average joe, sharp bengt, hank rey, slim jim, and grim tim that i all look "slim straight". the thing is, im not really looking for a "carrot" fit, which is what i am afraid grim tim will be like... for example:

i like all of those video fits... i can barely tell the difference between the slim jim and sharp bengt. the grim tims in that video, however, seem a bit tight?

post #19255 of 20655

Yeah, Grim Tim is much tighter fit vs SJ and SB... but it is still slim/straight... leg opening is around 7.5 so not too much taper.

 

IMO SJ and SB are too loose w/ a too-wide hem. GT is a near perfect fit... and I have fairly big legs... 22" thigh, 15.5" calves.

 

I'll post a pic of my GTs in WAYWT a little later. They are 32/32 and I have an actual 33" waist (where the waistband sits, not bellybutton).

Who makes a good washed denim? Preferably a Japanese brand since I have shorter legs at 5'9". Thanks in advance!

Good fit? Taper more?
Thoughts on single vs double cuff?
post #19259 of 20655

I have a pair of jeans that I really want to keep.  I like their fit, construction and weight, but the waist is .5 to 1" to big; when I wear a belt, it causes a slight "mini-erection" bulge on the bottom of the button fly.  My question is: is the fix as easy as having the first button moved over 0.5", or would mess up the rest of the button fly/crotch area?

Have you tried soaking yet? Especially if it's a unsanforized pair.

A hot soak then dry in dryer will shrink it considerably.
