post #12811 of 13341

I wear a size 31 in Unbranded Tapered. Should I get a size 30 in NF WG?

post #12812 of 13341

yeah, I think that's a good choice. I wear a 32 and 33 in the unbranded tapered and a 31 in N&F weird guys.

I got them for Christmas and have already washed them once, as they're a bit big...but I love the feel of them.

Can't wait to get my 4th pair of Naked and Famous jeans!!!

Spending 2014 getting as much wear as possible out of my 5 pair rotation, to justify a denim splurge next January:slayer:

Not lasting out very well without new jeans..

Do I treat myself for my birthday in Aoril, or last out until January 2015???(as resolution)

Today I'm in my Super Slubs - they're great jeans, love the cut.......wonder if I concentrate on them what colour they'll be by the end of the year..

My fave Naked and Famous to date:)

So to make sure, if I wear TTS for Unbranded and they fit well, I should size down one for N&F? Talking about 301s which are Slims vs. Weird Guys which are equal to 201s. I know it depends on fabrics, but according to Blueowl and going by the waist size alone, I should be sizing down 1 for most fabrics to match waist sizes. But what about taking into account shrinking after washing? I also wanna get something different than the Unbranded indigo fabric, preferably darker, currently deciding between Okayama Spirits, Dirty Fade, Blue Weft, Red Weft, Jade, Left Hand Twill and Deep Indigo. For the newer fabrics there are no pictures of them fading unfortunately. Any recommendations? Thanks.

You need advice from somebody who's worn both, but I think that'd right: you size down 1 from unbranded.

As for shrinkage- I wish mine would!!!!

They all say that they can shrink up to 3%, but apart from the length, they're still big on me.

Hope that helps!

Why do they need to Vanity size???

Surely we're not all so scred of our own true size that we need to feel like supermodels??????

Mind you, Momotaro go the other way and their hip and waist sizes are way off the mark- miles too big!

Anyone have an opinion on the jade selvedge? Pics with fades would be awesome. I checked the reddit thread already. Deciding between that and the more traditional left hand twill.

Jade Selvedge looks nice...don't know how it fades but you could show us..

Loads of people have left hand twill, jade Selvedge is more original..

For my $$$ worth I'd go with those

Maybe people who've tried both can give you better advice or evo pics..

Today I'm in my Super Slubs, I wish they'd shrink, but the lady that washes them won't hot wash or tumble dry them, as if they were $$$$ natural indigo zinzangs!!!

Plus I don't want to lose too much of the 34.5" inseam

Be brave - try something new!

Momotaro sizing is spot on. Vanity sizing mostly exists because of difference in fits in the upper region. This way someone who knows his size should have little to no problems picking a pair of jeans without having to hassle with different front and backrise.

Comparing measurements or even trying on a pair still is a better solution to avoid miss sized denim though.

I agree, but it's not easy when you're buying from Japan...

Well, today was my lucky day.. I went to get my everyday jeans hemmed at a local tailor. While I was waiting I took a walk to the "Fretex" shop nearby. Its a used store, were they sell everything from clothes to chairs and such. I was of course checking out the jeans, and after a little digging I found a pair of brand new Naked And Famous Elephant 2 jeans in my size with the tag still on it!! I bought them for just under 20 bucks!!

post #12823 of 13341

Yes, guess so, I got mostly crap for xmas :P anyways Ive worn them now for a couple of hours, it feels wonderfull! Its not tight in the waist like every other jeans Ive got, and its a little roomier in the crotch area, lovem`!

 

I got a pair of Unbrandeds 201 (14.5oz) in size 31", and a pair of 221 (21oz) in 30", both of them to tight to move proper in, this 32" is perfect!! Finally a pair of comfy raws in my collections.

Haha, I guess not! I really cant get over these jeans, and how I got them.. NF is not even sold in norway, and I guess it is not more than 20 people who even got one... amazing. And where I live now, Iam surrounded by farmers..
