I'm new to raw denim, and was curious about hemming. Is hemming required for pretty much all pairs of raw denim, seeing as there is one set 'inseam length'?

Really? Huh. Kinda surprised I've never heard of them or seen them mentioned around here.
Hilarious, but true.
Nudie? N&F? I dunno… for no real reason they are kinda the same to me, with Nudie being slightly less offensive. But I think that's because I'm 1/4 Swedish so I'm soft on them.post #21201 of 2142311/9/15 at 2:25pmpost #21202 of 2142311/9/15 at 6:39pmQuote:
There are many different inseam lengths from different makers. 3 Sixteen and Rogue Territory are crazy long 36" inseam. Freenote Cloth inseams run between 34" and 36". Railcars are 35" inseam. The answer is yes unless you fit that inseam length you will need to hem. Hem length will depend upon is you want to cuff or not, how much of a cuff you want, it you want to stack, etc..post #21203 of 2142311/9/15 at 6:44pmQuote:
Norman Russell and Crawford demin make some "washed" jeans that are softer and kind of faded already.

just because Noble Denim isn't mentioned here doesn't necessarily mean they're good or bad. they're a smaller company compared to other brands. if you Google their name you'll find them being sold through certain retailers. I don't personally own anything by them so have no bias for or against them, just pointing out that they're not exactly a new companypost #21205 of 2142311/11/15 at 5:40amQuote:
like any product people are going to look at exclusivity, and N&F aren't exactly exclusive since they can be found in places like Nordstroms to smaller boutiques. If you compare them to Japanese denim brands then most will probably say there's no comparison since Japanese brands are all about exclusivity. I would argue that there's nothing interesting about the dozens of companies out there releasing jeans using Cone Mills denim, which seems to be the gateway denim here in the US. If you compare Company A that charges $180-$200 for their Cone Mills denim to N&F that uses Japanese denim I think N&F wins because they have more variety. But, sometimes customers don't like all the bells and whistles that N&F has with their jeans and just want a simple pair that will fade well. I bought a pair of N&F's indigo/copper weft jeans awhile back because I got them cheap, and now I look at them and think they're kinda stupid. it's all personal preference when you break it all down and I don't think there's a right or wrong answer. I'm actually wearing a pair of N&F Left Hand Twill denim today and like the surface texture....nice and crunchypost #21206 of 2142311/11/15 at 7:13pm
I understand exclusivity but I've heard people complain about N&F quality and construction. Don't think they were referring to their gimmicky denim releases either. Still don't really know why N&F would be considered say APC or Rogue territory but it's easy to see why they are under say flathead or PBJ.post #21207 of 2142311/11/15 at 7:17pmpost #21208 of 2142311/11/15 at 8:51pmpost #21209 of 2142311/12/15 at 7:08amQuote:Originally Posted by Raisan

I honestly don't know why some people have complained about the quality/construction. I haven't had any issues in this regard with the N&F jeans I own. you're going to have people complain about X,Y or Z with any company. Gustin gets a lot of flack because of their stuff being out of spec. I own a pair of Gustin American Standards which I bought off of Grailed and the hem measurements are off by .25" - the left hem is 7.5" and the right is 7.75". It's not really noticeable to anyone but me. But, the other pairs of G denim I own are within spec and just fine.
I can't put my finger on it with N&F. I rarely read complaints from others with regard to quality or construction. I'm sure some people have probably had issues, but I think you'll find this with a lot of companies, even expensive high end brands.post #21210 of 2142311/12/15 at 11:49am
