So, where can I buy relaxed boot cut raw jeans?

I'm buying my first pair of Nudie jeans, but I'm unsure of what size to get since I realize they stretch. I typically wear a 32x30 (Yeah, I'm fatter than I am tall). Should I go for a 30x30 instead?

It really depends on the cut you plan on buying.

Also depends on what kind of fit you want from that cut. I tried on 28W Slim Jims and 29W Slim Jims and, while I could fit into the 28's pretty easily, this was my first foray into jeans that actually fit me, so they felt tighter than they were, and I ended up going with the 29s. They stretched to like 31", but I didn't really regret it, because I got an EXCELLENT slim-straight cut as opposed to a slim-skinny cut. You don't always need to get the tightest jeans you can possibly fit into... Nothing wrong with slim straights even if you can wear skinnies with ease.

I'm pretty sure a company called "Nudie" makes one exactly called "Thin Finn dry black coated"...
Check it out!

Seriously though, I don't know. Just couldn't resist... I can be an ass sometimes.

Good advice.

Depends on the cut and wash you're looking into. Mic Raw is true to size for example, while you'd need to size down 2, or even 3 for the Moc.

They pop up on eBay every once in a while. Alternatively, you can buy cheap selvedge jeans (GAP, Volcom, Academi etc. on sale) and cut them up.


You can also try emailing the brand. Some (Nudies) are nice enough to send you denim patch, buttons, etc. free of charges.

How does one keep jeans from fading? Many people seem to like raw denim so they can get sick fades but I actually like raw denim because of the dark color lol....is there a way to slow down the fading process? And how long can a person expect to wear a pair of raw denim regularly (at least a couple times a week) and have it stay uniformly dark?

1) Buy jeans that are notoriously hard to fade or have several pairs that you rotate through so that you diminish day-to-day wear. 2) Answered above. 3) Depends on how hard and often you wear your jeans. Most jeans will show at least some signs of fading (creases at the knees, wallet fade, etc.) after a solid month of wear. Typically, the heavier the denim, the harder it will be to break in and fade (Ironhearts, for example.)

Natural indigo is supposedly tougher to fade, but a) is more expensive and b) usually starts out lighter.

Also, looser jeans will have less stress on them in typical wear sports (lap, knees, honeycombs), and so will show less fading.

If I wear a 31x3 in thin finn dry stretch, should I get a 30x34 in the dry black coated? the dry stretches fit perfect, and i heard black coated runs an inch larger, so im accommodating for that. btw, does anyone have any experience with blackbird's black waxed denim? http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Blac...ean_11207.html

To add to Whodini's post, you could also dry clean your jeans to keep them dark.
