All of the non-selvedge N&F fit more TTS.  Especially in the thighs so watch out.  I think that's why they always end up on Gilt, besides being a less desirable option than the LHT.

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.

Ever heard of a tape measurer and size charts? If no, go investigate.

I have measured myself (with a tape measurer) and used a size chart on tate+yoko for the weird guys. Either I measure wrong, which I doubt, or I'm not understanding completely where their measurements for "upper thigh" is taken. A size 28 WG is supposed to be a waist 30 with an upper thigh measurement of 11 inches, which I'm assuming would be 22 inches all around the thigh. This did not fit my 20 inche quads nor my 30 inch waist.

It will stretch. It doesn't sound like you've sized down too much, in fact you sound like someone who has sized raw denim correctly for the first time.

You should measure a reference pair, preferably with a same fit. Body dimensions don't work well if you take things like front and backrise into account.

anyone have pics of faded greencast denim?
post #12262 of 13309

I'm thinking about getting some Elephant 3s. How're people liking them so far? What exactly does the "beige" overcast mean? Any fit pics? Have people found that the run larger/smaller than normal WeirdGuys (I usually size up in WGs). Thanks.

I would go your normal WG and SG size on this fabric. In your case I feel 34 is your normal size being what you own in Red Core.

You should measure a denim that fits well and compare to our posted measurements to comfirm your sizing.

Unbranded heavyweights are impossible to beat for the price. For those who simply want a heavyweight, get it. Unbranded is also a standard indigo color with contrast stitching and E3 has a tonal stitch making it look more like pant, slightly dressier.

 

That takes care of half your questions.

I posted pictures back on page 815, they aren't great fit pictures, I was just looking for some advice on how much to hem them. Feel free to go back and check them out. And I felt that they didn't necessarily run larger than usual, but had a more comfortable give or stretch to the fabric. My usual NF size is 34 in Weird Guy, and I got those which fit perfect already, so they felt like they would stretch and be much too big, so I sized down to a 33 and it'll work perfect for me once they stretch out a little. Sizing down to a 32 would have been too much, but since 33 is a size they make, I was good to go. If you're looking at sizes with a gap of 2 inches instead of 1 (34 to 33), then it may not be wise to size down, I can't speak to that.

It means, that if the jeans fade, a somewhat beige hue is apparent in the areas of wear. Much like greencast, but then beige.

Hey guys,  

 

I have a pair of N&F black selvedge weird guy's and they fit perfectly they are a size 30. However, I threw these in the dryer a while back, and I think it was the dryer that caused them to fit the way they do now. My true waist size is 30-31.

 

I need help figuring out what size I should get for my Weird Guy Left Hand twill. I think I've lost atleast an inch or half an inch since the last time I purchased a pair of N&F Weird Guys. So I'm not sure if I should be sizing down 2 or keeping it at 1. I purchased the size 30 they fit great, but I'm scared that they will stretch out a lot at the waist and it won't fit as good. I tried on the 29 today, and they fit real tight. So I'm kinda stuck between sizes. 

 

What I want is for these to stretch and end up fitting like my black selvedge's that I tossed in the dryer, without tossing my new pair of left hand twill in the dryer, in order to achieve the fit of the black selvedge's. 

 

Any idea on which size I should get?

 

Thanks

If 30 fits good without using the dryer, why don't you buy a 30 and keep them out of the dryer?

Throwing raw denim into the dryer kind of defeats the point of buying raw denim.

Cause I'm almost certain that the 30 will stretch out, but i'm just not sure how much they're gonna stretch. I bought the jeans atleast 3 weeks ago, and have yet too even wear them for a full day. Yet they already feel a lot less tight compared to when I first got them.

 

That's the reason why I'm stuck between sizes, also I've read that the majority size down 2 on WG.

The only reason I threw them in the dryer was cause they were 3 year old jeans that I don't wear anymore, and I wanted to see how much they would shrink. And it turns out they fit better now than they did before.

 

However I don't want to use the dryer in order to achieve the fit that I'm looking for.
