How can you tell which black jeans are going to hold their colour?

Generally unless they also have a black weft, they will fade out to a grey/white.  (Basically if even if it's a super dark jean with a really black warp, when you wear down those fibers if there is a white weft below, it's gonna show).

Thanks, flat spotting!

I think I'm safer with indigo jeans!!smile.gif

No worries.

 

 

 

This is always an option:

I've thought about it myself, but just have way too much denim!

Thanks for the information! I guess I'll go with something different for black denim, perhaps something that is priced lower. I'll certainly go with Naked & Famous Denim for indigo, though!

anyone comment on the sizing of the Naked & Famous Thermochromic Weird Guy Fit? Are they vanity sized like the usual Naked and Famous Jeans? Also do they stretch in the waist?

I think that the Thermochromic jeans run small, if that's any help:).

Anyone check out the Stacked Guy, exclusive to Barney's?

http://www.barneys.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BNY-Site/default/Search-Show?q=503155073

It's being modeled terribly. It has a 33" inseam and an 11" rise, so you're meant to be able to wear it it really low and get stacks, almost like a drop-crotch pant. Of course you also have the option to wear them up. Funny that there aren't any stacks on the model, though!

It's being modeled terribly, indeed. I dislike how these Naked & Famous Denim jeans are made to look like formal slacks in many pictures. That's not how jeans are supposed to be. It's misleading, and it turns me off. If I happened to be more of a novice to Naked & Famous Denim, I would probably turn away from the brand completely if I saw how these pairs of denim are being modeled. I don't want my jeans looking like formal slacks. Jeans aren't supposed to look like formal slacks. They're supposed to have a casual look to them.

Poor Naked and Famous--they give Barney's an exclusive and Barney's can't even advertise it correctly.

How are you liking it so far? I'm not a fan of that wax-coated look. It seems uncomfortable to wear. Maybe it looks better wear you wear them, though.

How's the sizing?i haven't found a chart.
post #12673 of 13219
@Tokyocean they're comfortable because it has the stretch to it. Also, I have the indigo wax coated skinny guys they came out a while back in the skinny guy cut, and those are super comfortable

@Octacon I went with my skinny guy sizing and they fit good. Really narrow legs and opening on the stacked guys

Nice. Thanks.
I've never actually tried n&f and have been too afraid I'd order the wrong size.

I should probably go one or two up from Levis, huh?

What fit are you going for? Do you want more of a relaxed fit or a slim fit? If you're going for the Skinny Guy fit, stay true to size. If you're going for the Weird Guy fit, size down one unless you want a more relaxed fit. For a more relaxed fit, stay true to size or size up one. I hope that helps.

 

Where do you plan on ordering from?
