I understand from this the waterproof coating only lasts a few washes and then the jeans is permeable to water like any other jeans? butbut.gif

Is there any way to easily "recoat" the jeans?

Thanx in advance!

How often would you even wash snow pants? I know I never do because they dont even get dirty unless you somehow get mud on them. Also the jeans them self don't need to be washed that often. 3-4 washes should be good for 3-4+ years. How many times are you going to wear them a season to equate to even needing a wash?

watch out on those n & f shirts. I have had issues with 3 of their shirts. one they didnt sew the shoulder seam and the cuff seam came apart all with a week of owning, a pink oxford shirt had the darts not sewn right and came apart after one wash, and the 3rd, a denim stripped shirt, had a cuff seam that came apart after 2 wears. I was wearing these to work also. just sitting there getting regular wear.

Actually, I bought them so I could drive around on my motorcycle in the wintertime without getting wet or having to pull over to put on nylon pants every time it rains. I anticipate wearing them alot during the winter.

Bottom line is you shouldn't really need to wash them more then 3-4 times before you get another pair. 

 

I read you're not supposed to put them in the dryer...?

Try WG tts or down 1

I had my friend measure my waist today and it was a 31 haha, and my thighs are about 19-20 inches and I've started working on my legs so my thighs are going to get toner. Does anyone know how much the left hand twill would stretch around the waist if I'm a true 31?

Just get a DWR Spray, I use this on my snowpants:

Nikwax TX.Direct Spray On.

If they say don't put them in the dryer then DO NOT put them in. I said some snow pants, I should have checked on these before my reply, sorry about that. 

 

As Blazin said above me, Nikwax is by far the best to use. I use it on all my hiking, outdoor, snowboard gear. It's literally a heaven sent compared to the BS we were sold in the past.

A quick question from someone that has never owned a pair of NnF.  I am trying to figure out the main difference between the weird guy vs slim guy fit.  I am 5' 7" 155 athletic build. I am having a hard time finding measurements on the NnF website for leg opening-inseam on all styles.  Sorry for the basic question just didnt want to read through 713 pages  Thanks

Hey guys

I recently bought a Skinny Guy Black Power Stretch in size 30 (which measures 31 apparently), however I won't be able to try it on for another few weeks. I've been thinking about the sizing a lot (and although I won't really know until I try them on) I was wondering if anyone with experience with the SkG power stretch can help answer some fit questions? I read around on various forums, checked blueowl's sizing chart and the consensus seemed to say go TTS. That being said, some posters say it is best to go TTS with power stretch and size down on other SkG due to the difference in fabric (much tighter and because of the stretch recovery) while others say to size down 1 with power stretch because the stretch accomodates sizing down. What is everyone's experience with this?

 

I'm 5'7, around 130 lbs

Waist (hip): about 30"

Thigh: 18.5"

Calves: 14 - 14.5"

 

I generally go TTS...I've worn Nudie Slim Jim in 30, Thin Finn in 29 and currently I'm wearing Levi's 511 in 30 and 510 in 32 (although the waist has stretched maybe an inch, I wear a belt).

 

I'm liking the 511 fit at the moment, however those have stretched all around and in the waist to maybe a 31.5 inches and so I'm looking for a slightly slimmer cut than how they currently fit. Looking at the measurements on Blueowl, I think I'll be able to fit into the 29, but it might be too tight on my calves and I'm not looking to go the Thin Finn sz 29 route again. Either way, I am planning on pre-soaking to get rid of any starch, extra dye and shrinkage. What do you guys think? How do the power stretch fit  and wear in compared to other SkG? Thanks!

@ Mayo. I'm about a 32.5 and I went with a tagged 30 for the power stretch. They stretch out more and quicker than any other denim. If you have a slim build, size down as much as possible. Also be warned, the zipper has a hard time staying up.

haha yeah I bet if you sized down a bunch the zipper has a hard time staying up. Do they look like leggings? Post some fit pix.+
