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.
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.
