How much will these stretch? What are some guidelines for knowing if these will work for me?  For instance I did have some trouble getting the first button done up and there isn't a chance that my phone will fit in my pocket
Stretch will depend on the particular jean.

If you can wear them the day you buy them (ie you can do up the fly, and walk and sit with feeling like you'll pop a blood vessel), you should be okay. If you only lived down one size, you should be okay.

It's hard to say with out pics and more details.

But if you don't like them .. Return them. Don't do what people on the Internet say.

What's the fit on weird guys like for someone who is 30 TTS.  I think I'm going to have to return these jeans, it's unrealistic to think they will stretch enough.  I would take a picture but I'm alone and I don't have a single full body mirror but I can answer any questions pertaining to the fit. These are the jeans in question http://blueowl.us/scripts/psp/VB_Bridge3.dll?VBPROG=\bin\shop.prodt.detail&SKU=7653001

also I haven't done a soak on them yet

Go off of blue owl measurements. Buy your true to size measured! No true to size tagged. 

 

Most likely a Tag sz 28.

 

Then hot soak them, air dry. They will be tight but they will stretch with about 30 hrs of wear. Give it time.

Thanks for the reply, ok I'm in the process of measuring myself though I'm not sure how spot on I am for instance how the hell do I measure my rise and thigh?, for instance a good fit for me is

 

those are epaulet chinos, or my go to well fitting jeans are 511's in size 30.

That guide is for jeans not your body. 

 

Anyways just measure your thighs and waist thats all. Do no measure your waist at your belly button like many guides tell you. Unless you wear your jeans at your belly button lol, measure wear you wear your jeans. 

 

Do not worry about rise, and get all typical about measurements. Your buying a pair of $150 jeans, although that might be a lot for some people. Its still cheap. If you want a perfect fitting pair buy true to size tag size, and go to a very good tailor, and he will chop them up. But if you do that I would consider a diff brand like Flat Head, or Iron Heart, be will to spend $450-550 w/ jeans if you do that.

^ that is the most awful advice man. Truth is this cut may just not suit you. Measure a current pair of well fitting jeans and go off that. Measure the thighs from the crotch inseam across the widest part. Connect the waist band and measure across, do that for all other measurements. Most NF are Saforized so they will not shrink like unsanforized jeans, so a soak is optional but won't reallyw do much. Buying premium brands like the Flat Head and IH will not magically solve fit problems from a pair of jawnz that have been sized incorrectly, paying more does not mean you will be getting something that will fit you u that is just stupid advice I'm sorry to say.

Also don't tailor your jeans buy them to fit, simple. You will loose all the details you essentially pay for with tailor. Chain stitched hems and inseam, silhouette etc.

Just size right, and be patient with the process.

Also the rise is extremely important since it will determine where the jeans will sit. Not sure if einstein is trolling or just extremely misinformed ( which would be ironic)

+1. The rise is going to dictate (assuming all other measurements are fine) what waist measurement you should be looking for.,

Are you ill? 

 

He is trying a new cut in the first place, thats why he is asking these questions lol.

Most N&F jeans are unsanforized. So a soak is a must unless you want your honeycombs on your thighs when you decide to soak for the first time. 

Even sanforized jeans like A.P.C. should get a soak before wear, if you want your fades to be exactly were they were, before you soaked them. 

Never said brands like Flat Head, and Iron Heart will solve fitting problem. I stated that if he wants a exact fit by going to a tailor, buy a pair of FH or IH. 

One other thing? What the hell are you taking about loose all the details from going to a tailor? He wont be getting his jeans "not jawnz" bejewled. So I am pretty sure if a tailor resizes the thighs, and tampers the lower legs. They wont disappear lol.

 

Rightyow77,Please go back to the SuFu forums. Thanks.

Ok using that guide here is my info from my size 30 511's

approx 32.5 waist (kind of a pain in the ass to measure on my well worn jeans so that could be less)

9 1/2 rise

11 3/4 thigh  

8 1/2 knee
 

so as of now I'm thinking of sizing up to a 31, would that be too much?  I actually really like the cut of the skinny guys but the ones I have are just too small

post #11607 of 13379

Hunter Smith, just order from Revolve and get a size 30 and 31. Keep the one that fits snug but not too tight. The jeans will stretch an inch in the waist usually. They have free shipping and are tax free and will even give you 30% off your first order.

 

All of this other stuff is overly complicated. Also, you don't really need to pre-soak. That's just an OCD thing denim nerds too. Just order the jeans, keep the one that fits well, and live your life.

 

edit: N&F pockets run small, just warning you.

Hi again.

You really do need to presoak especially if they are unsanforized. Your fades will shift to another area of the jeans, thats just common sense. Self edge does not post how much they will shrink because it looks cool. "Yes I know SF does not sell N&F"

 

Feel free to msg tate+yoko they will you get you set up with the right pair and also give you some good advice of the denim world.

Rightyow77,Please go back to the SuFu forums. Thanks.

 

 

wrong wrong wrong.  most NF jeans ARE sanforized.  i think the only ones that are not are the kamikaze's.  there's no need to soak initially as long as they are sanforized.  soaking will only get rid of some of the starch and a little extra dye...both of which would help you get better fades in the first place.  

 

 

the best way to order a new pair of denim is to measure a pair of pants that you already have.  you know how your jeans fit...you know which measurements need to be lengthened and which need to be shortened to achieve the fit you are looking for.  measure your jeans the blueowl method (in the link i posted above) and compare to the charts on blueowl.  be careful of the rise...there's nothing worse than tight junk.  after a week or 2 of wearing your new raw denim the waist will stretch usually no more than 2" (could be slightly more or slightly less) and the thighs may stretch a 1/2 inch or so.  that's all there is to it.  it's really not rocket science. if you get it wrong the first time, send them back for a different size...no biggie.

sorry but you've got your information wrong. almost all of n&f jeans are sanforized, not the other way around.
