BTW what is everyones opinion on the naked and famous belts? They seem to be pretty heavy duty and a nice alternative to the tanner and corter belts.

Corter and N&F use basically the same leather, but N&F has a very cool one peice buckle and Corter's buckle is standard roller. Tanner is more finished (waxed, treated, rounded off edges, etc.)

If you like the N&F buckle, get it and you will be very happy.

Another question. I'm assuming most of you are soaking them and hemming the raw denims before wearing them for 6 months right? Or do most of you wear it for 6 months, wash them and then hem them?

some glow arent, not sure which seasons

They are Saf. so hem them raw or not I haven't really found it to be much of an issue, but then again I am on the short side and my jeans usually run a tad long after hemming. If you don't mind a clean break then go ahead and hem your jeans true or leave a little room for shrink, otherwise if you're a stack fetishist just stretch the inseam back out when still damp. This is not rocket science guys come on they're just jawnz

I've never done stacking before. I usually wear a slim-straight cut and get my jeans hemmed to wear it is half an inch longer than my heel barefoot. I don't really like the skinny type cut nor can I fit them since my thigh are huge because of doing squats. I just don't want to get them hemmed and have them shrink even more after. So I'll guess I'll soak them in hot water first before hemming them.

When I first saw the glow in the dark jeans 2 years ago they were selvedge, and the stitching would light up. I just got my glow in the dark stretch denim from ********* delivered to me today, and saw that they were not selvedge...gotta say I was disappointed.

Sorry to hammer on with the issue, but since standard N&F indigo jeans are sanforized, doesn't that mean hot soaking isn't really necessary? Isn't that what the whole 'sanforization' process does?

You would think; but sanforization only limits initial shrinkage, bringing the average down from 10% or so (think Levi's STF) to 3-4% (read the inside of your tags). Any cotton will constrict a bit the first time it gets wet. If you hem to perfection before it's soaked, your pants are likely to end up too short.

Well I've been wearing a pair of regular indigo weird guys for about 4-5 months now. I hemmed them right away, but I never soaked them. Should I expect to ruin how these fit when I first wash them in a few months?

They will most likely shrink a bit; waist will generally stretch back out, but inseam may come up, thighs and top block get smaller, etc. it's what cotton does.

That's a bitch :/ I remember when I first got them, I came to this thread and read that since they were sanforized hot soaking was not necessary. Actually read here that hot soaking would make the denim more prone to crotch blowouts and things of the sort , and it would result in cheaper looking fades.
