Some great items up there. Anyone have experience with N&F shirting? I've had my eye on that camo twill in grey for a while now.

 

edit: And of course they don't have WG Ducks! censored.gif

Thanks. As people said most are sanaforized. I know the regular indigo is not and that is a common buy. The kid I was trying to help out did not tell us what pair he bought, I was just giving advice, and the advice was not wrong. I was just trying to help someone that is new to raw denim. People on here simply blow it out of proportion.

The regular indigo is sanforized.

I guess I am wrong then. My first pair shrunk like over an inch in the thighs on first hot soak though.

Why would you do a hot soak if you were worried about shrinking? Unless you were trying to shrink them?
When I cold soaked my LHT they shrunk a tiny bit but after a couple days of wear were back to where they were pre soak.

I wasent worried about shrinking. I was told by Alex at Tate + Yoko in like 2011 they will shrink 0.5 in measurements. Mine shrank more in the thighs. Hot soaks get the most shrinkage out so there is no worries if you get them dirty in the future with all the work you put into fading them, then when its time to soak or wash them and then they don'f fit.

what youre calling shrinkage is a temporary shrinkage that stretches out real fast.  when it touches water and dries the fibres tighten even if theyre sanforized but theyll stretch back out like its nothing.

For people who have larger thighs, how do you accommodate for sizing?

Waist is easy, as you simply just order the actual size that corresponds with your waist. But if your thigh is say 24", you're not going to order a pair that has exactly 12" as that will be skin tight.

So the guys with large thighs, how much extra inches do you accommodate for to ensure that cut is right for you?

People. Soak your denim. Sanforized or not. It's healthy for the fabric. Stop being such fools.

This is not a hard concept.

you do do that.... unless you dont want it snug on your thighs.  if you want a looser fit then get one thats like 12.5".

I would really like the weird guy cut. I sized to a 33 while my slims are 34 but I think that was a mistake. They seem to tight inthe thighs.

I am going to return them but it says only for gilt credit. For shame.

 

What model did they send you then?  It should say on the care instructions.

Gilt is not good for measurements, or fit pics. Every time I order from there I always just google the product to look for better info. Gilt Final sale is as its says final sale. But if they sent you the totally wrong product, I would call or email them.

 

*I miss Park & Bond, they had such good deals on clothing.
