post #12436 of 13226

is it just me or super skinny guy jeans more of a straight slim fit?

post #12437 of 13226
Need some help with fit and sizing. I currently own some pretty used APC PS 31", meaning they're stretched out already and I'm really happy about the fit. The only thing I would change about them would be maybe more tapering from above the knee and down. Otherwise I'm looking for the most identical N&F fit, but I'm unsure if it's the weird guy fit or the skinny fit? And how about sizing. If I'm a 31" APC PS after stretching, how do the N&F run?

On a related matter, are there any impressions on the Lyocell Selvedge?It's the first of the new Slims, but it was released as a WG before.

Also curious about Lyocells.

It's not that I narrowed down my search to the Oni collabo it's just the fact that alternatives are lacking.
Until you answered I haven't had the Okayama Spirit in mind.

The hunt for the Onis wouldn't be that tough, I'm in contact with a shop who still got some of the Onis in stock.

Thanks again!

The diff. between JH and Oni collab just might have to do with the sanforisation. It's a process that takes a heavy toll on denim character.
For those wondering. Ask yourself how the Oni collab would look if you press the lovely slubby, bumpy, textured fabric trough a pair of heated rollers.

The latest of Naked & Famous' secret weapons just hit our store, and this one is going to blow your mind. A multi-color weft that is, every thread, painstakingly hand dyed. We had a chance to talk with the crazy guys who came up with this, and here's how its done: The thread is wrapped around a large, flat surface and bunched up to create an almost solid, faux surface of thread. Once the entire spool is wrapped, the thread is dyed in small 2-3 inch strips horizontally across the surface. Once all of the tread is dyed, it is re-spooled an sent to be used on the shuttle looms. Because of this unique dying process if you follow any one thread across the inside of the jean you can see it change colors multiple times!

Like all Naked & Famous denim, the fabric is milled in Japan and the jeans are sewn in Canada. A limited production of only 175 pairs of this denim were made, and we've got all 44 that were shipped to the United States. Its a truly limited edition run of a beautiful, unique fabric, and we're pumped to see how they will evolve once worn.

Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" 13oz Hand Dyed Weft Limited Edition. 100% cotton. Made in Canada. Sizes 28-34, 36. $245. For more information on the N&F weird guy hand dyed weft, click here.

The weft is a subtle, yet striking detail on the surface of the denim.

The multi-color yarn can even be spotted in the selvedge.

I just came back from Tate + Yoko to try out the new Slim Guys.

 

My impressions: they're tighter in the waist, which is good for me since I lost a few pounds since I bought my last pair. They are also slightly tighter around the calves, but fortunately not as tight as the skinnys or the Weirds (since I love cross-country skiing, I have stronger legs than average and the SkG and the WG get stuck on my calves when I try to remove them). Apparently, they are half-way between the old SlG and the WG. The rise was kept the same.

 

Basically, they are now what they were supposed to be: slim, straight jeans with a mid rise. I really like them, though we will probably not see them very often.

 

For Lyocell, it is extremely soft. If you liked the Soft Raw, you'll loved them: I think they are even softer. Didn't like it too much, I felt it lacked structure and that it would too easily slip down my waist. I went with the navy chino instead: it's a dark blue-gray colour that I found has just enough contrast with my dark indigo jacket that I could wear both without suffering from "double denim".

Oh, and that hand dyed weft denim looks very nice in RL. They're actually available in a few stores here in Québec (Simons), with a few other limited editions and regulars. I bought my blanket-lined jacket there, and they have a flannel skinny guy and the vintagecast WG for $135.

Those hand-dyed wefts look gorgeous. Also glad to hear about the new Slim Guy fit, now if only they would go down to a size 27...

That is amazing. I once had a pair of beautiful sample denims, bought at one of the very irregular garage sales at the Edwin HQ in Tokyo, that was just like this, and I have never seen anything similar since. I must have one!

Lyocell sounds like a nightmare, thanks for the warning.

Plus the sizing chart for the new Slim Guy looks EXTREMELY promising. I can't wait to buy up some N&F again.

For the next 2 seasons (FW13 and SS14), there's only the Okayama Spirit and the Heavy Soft Selvedge that are planned in Slim Guy, though they will also replace the regular denims with the new fit when they make a new batch. Don't get me wrong, those two seem extremely nice, but I really have my eyes on the Natural Indigo Lightweight Selvedge for summer jeans. 

 

I guess I'll wear N&F from Fall to Spring, then shift to another brand for summer (I bought a couple of Agave Denim linen-cotton blends on sale and I really like them).
