I'm not sure how I should soak them concerning the temperature. Do you think they will stretch out to a little bit more than pre-soak measurements when I soak them warm or should I cold soak? (Which I actually don't want to, because I wanna wash them with warm water after a while..)
They sure need to be a bit looser than right now..

Sorry for the blurred pictures.



 

Fit looks good if you like them skinny, you could probly size up 1 if you wanted for a looser fit. If you keep them the leg will barely stretch, only the waist will stretch. Looking at the pics, your thighs arent big enough to stretch the thigh area so you should keep that in mind. Also, an initial soak will shrink the whole jean a decent amount regardless of temperature so the thigh and calf will be even smaller.

Had email confirmation via Brandon that they will be bringing the StackedGuy fit to other denims soon. I'm an excited man!

The waist till probably shrink 1" to 1.5" on a cold soak, warm/hot soak more like 2.5" at the top end of the spectrum.  Inseam expect to lose about 1", and about .5" thigh/knee/calf.  So take that into consideration before soaking.

Thanks for your opinions.
I think I keep them and wear them a week straight and soak then - depending on the amount of stretch - cold or warm. Actually I'm quite confident because it's a loose weave..

Does anyone have or know where to find any progress pictures of the NF blue weft? I'm thinking about getting them as my next pair but don't really want to go in blind.

 

 

 

Here's a few pics of my current pair, pretty limited 15oz indigo/indigo slubs

 

 

 

 

7 months 0 washes^

 

 

And the reason i'm looking for another pair to add into my rotation :(

 

 

^^ nf weird guy indigo's (1 year 0 washes and the blowout to prove it)

Nice fades for sure - but my god - from those pics looks insanely tight in the crotch, get that sperm count checked hah.   

 

 

Also washing/soaking helps keep fabrics strong - in turn less crotch blow outs.

Yeah unfortunately the production of those was really limited and I had to size down 1 from what I would have ideally gotten. I just loved the electric blue fading so I went for it. I kinda regret it haha but oh well. 

 

And I got greedy and wanted higher contrast fades, so I let the regular indigo's get past the point of no return in the fraying/etc in the crotch :( oh well, I patched them and it's not super noticeable. I love that pair, they're like my first born child and i'll still keep them in the rotation until they completely fall apart!

get them repaired properly by someone like denim therapy, it'll be stronger than when new. a simple patch doesn't really repair it.

Does N&F have a weird guy cut in straight black? I wear 31 in Weird Guy's (right now rocking the 12 oz and they fit great) - and they fit much better than my 32 skinny guys in power stretch. Might get a weird guy cut in pure black as I have bigger thighs.

Have you considered the sulphur-dyed? They're pretty dark.

Hey everyone, I just purchased a pair of super skinny LHT and they fit great for the most part. The only thing thing I'm wondering is, are they supposed to be worn high up on the waist? Because they're tight when I wear them low and they keep riding up to my belly button. Another thing is, the pocket area is really tight and I can barely get y hands in them, but I guess that's normal for skinny jeans.

Thinking of getting the Okayamas as well in the super skinny fit.

 

Does the loose weave also mean it'll be easy to stretch it back out if it shrinks too much? I wear a 29 in the Super Skinny stretch selvedge and thinking whether i should size up 2 or 3.

post #12719 of 13369
I have no experience out of first hand yet but I talked to some people who are wearing the Okayamas themselves and they said that the denim will stretch back out.

Here's a direct quote from Evan from NF

"I found that the waist didn't shrink too much, and stretched out about an inch. The inseam shrunk the most at 1 inch or something like that... the legs got nice and snug and fit wonderfully."

Hope this helps.

Hmm need a new pair of straight black pants (I have the N&F Power Stretch Skinny guy in 32, but they're too tight in the thighs).

Should I get the Sulphur WG's in 32 (14 oz) or the Black Chinos in 32? (12 oz)
