Go with size 30 IMO.

Get size 30. They'll be a bitch the first week or two but they stretch out.

Secondly, when you do soak them and they shrink to a 30-31 or so, I would say you'll still be good, but likely won't be cuffing them, assuming you do now.

 

I don't cuff them. The inseam is just long enough right now. If the inseam shrinks at all they will be too short.

Really? So am I. If you don't mind me asking, where are you in relation to Rochester?

I'm near Utica, so much further east but at the same latitude.

Are you at a very small liberal arts college that begins with an H?

I've worn mine a couple dozen times, and my brother just got his yesterday. Brand new it's almost like cardboard trying to get into them, but they eventually do soften up quite a bit. I'm in Toronto, and I couldn't wear this in the summer at all, and I'll be wearing it in the winter, at least on weekends.

I wouldn't say it keeps me warm - so far it's only been as low as -3 or so though. But it certainly doesn't make me feel as cold as I would be had I been wearing a lighter pents.

Finally, it's definitely dark indigo, and not black, however the photos online may make it seem. It's my first pair of jeans that cost over $60, and I'm really enjoying wearing them.

Edit: Looks like I replied to the wrong person, sorry about that.

im in toronto too and noticed i can only wear them up to 25 degrees celsius but when i was in hk i wore them up to 29 and it was alright too.  definitely hard to be year round jeans but it depends on where youre from.

 

i still get cold in the winter but notice it insulates better than lighter denim

Anyone got any more information on the N&F vintage terry cardigan?  

I'm picky when it comes to cardigans and these look pretty nice and simple.

Fit pics would be awesome, or any kind of info in general really.

I have bought their crewneck sweaters before if they are anything like that. They are really crappy.

Really?? Damn that's a let down.  Crappy even for $80?

Well that's disappointing, I was looking at the one on Tate & Yoko in charcoal.
Guess I'll have to look elsewhere. It seems difficult to find a simple quality cardigan.

Thanks a lot, just the sort of stuff I was looking to know (stiffness, color, warmth, etc.)

Not sure if this is the right place to post about Unbranded but since it's made by the same guys as N&F I figured I'd ask. I bought a pair a few months ago that fit great but I had to return them because the pockets were so damn small. It was incredible difficult to get my phone and wallet out of the pockets. Does anyone know if this has been fixed?

No idea, but here is the Unbranded thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/150423/the-unbranded-brand-jeans/
