Naked and famous denim - Page 817

Yea, but then you have to ship back and that takes time and more money. I don't want to deal with the hassle so that's why I'm asking so many questions

post #12242 of 13341

It will cost you about $10 to ship them back.  Is that really too much money to correct a fit you are unhappy with?

 

Now that you know how long they are you can take this opportunity to have the new ones hemmed to an appropriate length.

what i have learned from years of raw denim experience is that no one on these forums can tell you what size to get....everyone has a different opinion on fit and different body type. The best thing to do is talk to Jay at B.O or the dudes at Tate and yoko. Both stores have awesome customer service. It's their job to make sure people get what they want. If more people would do that it would clear out the "what size should I get" posts ....which would delete about half the pages in this thread

Agreed. It is an internet illusion that you can figure out what size to buy. Even measurements are misleading as shit. Just plan on returning and try to buy from a store that has alternate sizes / fits / brands available because you get store credit only from all of them.

It's not even worth it, for example, for me to risk buying from SE on a rare sale because I'll have to return the item for store credit and be forced to either try to resell the credit or buy a full price item. Store credit is a scam. They can charge shipping and make it nonrefundable, but they prefer free shipping / store credit / f-u.

+1.  Even when they give the sizing, there is huge fluctuation from jean to jean.  It is unfortunate, but there are not many stores that carry this stuff in the States outside NY, LA, and SF.  I live in the Second City, and you can't find any jap denim here; only cone mill rags.  But its the nature of the beast in the world of raw denim.  Best advice is to email the store where you plan to buy and ask for the actual measurements on jeans you want that they carry in the store.  Jay at Blueowl did that and it helped me get the size I wanted. 

 

But nobody on this website can tell you what size to get w/o knowing the actual measurements of the jeans you want to get.

Sizing of naked and famous is very specific i find to the type of denim they've used. I just picked up a pair of elephant 3's at the local shop in a 34 because im planning on putting on around 10-15lbs this winter. My pair that i had been working on had been the big slub weird guys in a 33 but they are just too tight on my quads and look painted on. The elephant 3's will become my favourite denim by far. Half way through day one and i dont want to have to take these off. The material has a bit of stretch to it and i have a feeling they'll become my rock climbing/slacklining/training pants for the fall which will give me even better fades. I am excited to see how these will turn out in the coming months

        Agreed. I got the Lighweight selvedge in 29 and it was perfect for me in the thighs, while the waist stretched a little bit too much. Then I got Soft Finish selvedge in 29 and it was tighter in the thighs and in the waist and seemed to have a more aggressive taper. Hopefully the thigh stretches out since I cant get a refund.

They had naked and famous at Barney's last time I was there.

I have to retire my Deep Indigos because I put a half inch on my thighs at the gym recently.  I loved these jeans.  1 years, 9 months with 2 washes and took one serious beating.

 I might take a better contrast photo to show the front fades better.

ecco it still might fit good fit pics?
post #12251 of 13341

I have to jump up and down to get them on and then I can barely sit down to drive in the car.  The top block still fits pretty well but those thighs are killer.  I need an 11.75 thigh now.

What's your TTS?  And why do you think they'll make such great climbing pants?  I'm looking for some good denim as we lead back into the season...

post #12253 of 13341

My TTS for the weird guys is a 33, they are snug at first but then stretch to a perfect fit. With the ele3 i wanted to size up on them for the winter season which is my off season for bodybuilding. This means i tend to grow like crazy and my legs would not fit in a 33.  I think these will be good climbing pants because they seem to have a bit more give/elasticity than many other pairs of jeans that i own/have tried on.  The 34s give me a near full range of motion in my legs and it will only improve as time goes on.  I believe you need to try this pair on just to feel the difference, they were comfortable the moment i put them on.  Here's a few shitty fit pics that i snapped quickly yesterday

Anyone recall if the RHT's were stupid small? I seem to remember this.
post #12255 of 13341

Just bought a pair of weird guys in size 28, and it sadly turned out to be tighter than I was expecting. I wear a waist 28 on my old pair of Levis 514s, so I was hoping that the buttons on the weird guys would at least close.... not to mention the tightness around my quads. Google told me that weird guys should fit people with big quads but apparently that's not true for me. Should I size up on the jeans or are there other alternatives within the same price range that will fit my legs without sufficating them? I'm 20 inches around each quad.
