I don't find that they fit that differently in the upper thigh, but the Weird Guy is a lot tighter around the knees and calves due to its extreme taper.

I've never measured the differences in the thigh and rise, but even if they are the same, the overall fit can be very different. The WG are tighter in the thighs--maybe it's just the lower?--but the biggest difference is up top. WG are pretty much unwearable for me because I can hardly bend without them falling off my ass. I'm guessing others have this problem, because I don't think many are buying slim guys for the massive knees and ankles.

I have a slim guy and 31 and the weird guy in a 32.....the SG fits fine...the WG is tight in the thigh and I don't have enough room in the crotch. I also find that when I sit and bend over the back of my WG shows a little crack ;)

I am not sure if it's the rise that makes a difference or what it is. I know the weight of the denim makes a difference also. The SG are the natural indigo and the WG are the competition jeans which are heavier. I also do not "sag" jeans at all just an fyi.

This doesn't really sound all that likely.

Well, I was exaggerating, but it sounds like boomer has the same problem. I've tried on plenty of pairs of slim guys and weird guys. I've gone with multiple sizes, similar fabrics, completely different fabrics, and same fabrics, and the difference in the top block is quite severe.

I personally think the slim guy cut is the only cut that can universally look good on multiple body types if they are sized for each body type. It's also the only cut by N&F that will last the test of time style wise, WG and skinny guy are two cuts that are in with today's style for people who like very slim cuts. What I'm saying is the slim guy is closest to the traditional 501 by levis. The skinny guy cut probably wont be in style 10 years from now and the weird guy might also be a cut kids don't want to wear anymore.

Anyone know where I can get thread close to what N&F uses so I can hem my jeans? I'm having trouble finding thicker thread in colors that match the Nep thread and the Brown Canvas thread.

I went TTS on my WGs...they're a touch loose around the waist but fit well (slim, but not tight) everywhere else, the rise is a bit low but I don't tuck shorts into jeans so its a moot point. I think WG, when sized properly (not everyone needs to go down sizes), is a near perfect universal cut for denim. If you're morbidly obese or stick thin then its probably not right for you, but for the rest of us average folks I think they hit the mark on the fit.

The Slim Guy does not have the same rise as the Weird Guy. Or it shouldn't, at least.

Regular guy, eh?

Sounds great.

I just want the weird guy highs.
post #6521 of 13316
The Weird Guy Highs will be priced higher than Weird Guys. Weird Guy Nep High is $180.

i also cant really fit into a weird guy, the fit is just uncomfortable for me for some reason.
weird thing is i am not fat or anything, the low rise just crushes my bozack

You can look at Imperial Shearers or wait for the Weird Guy High. The rise on Shearers is 12"-13"

Anywhere we can find previews of the regular fit or WG highs? Any early blog posts I haven't seen?
