then why all of the stuff I read from google say that you measure your waist by wrapping the measure tape around your navel (or slightly above it)?

weird guy is a no go for me since the smallest thigh available is 11.25" and my current jeans have 10.5" thigh and I'm comfortable with that. I'm afraid WG would sag too much.

the people who decided where that measurement is taken were all born in the 1940s and that is where they wear their pants . . . the place where you want to measure for skinnyguy is a few inches below that. take a look at some pics online and on their website to get a better idea of where to measure. in fact, measure your current skinny jeans and go by that measurement.

@zac: by tts do you mean true to the size on the label or the actual measurement (which is an inch bigger)?

I am not sure about neiman's international shipping policy but you may want to look into it, I know that shipping is generally free after spending XXX USD and they always cover return shipping.

Here are the measurements, lets see if someone with more expertise can help you lol. sorry man.

* Size 28 (29" waist, 9" rise, 10" thigh, 7.1" knee, 36" inseam, 6.8" leg opening)
* Size 29 (30" waist, 9" rise, 10.25" thigh, 7.25" knee, 36" inseam, 7" leg opening)
* Size 30 (31" waist, 9" rise, 10.5" thigh, 7.4" knee, 36" inseam, 7.25" leg opening)

both are really nice, but overall it depends on what style you are looking for. take measurements of what your pants are now, 511 etc, and compare them to what is listed on blueowl. talk to jay and he can really offer some quality suggestions.
 

I have also noticed that my NF WGs have stretched out more than I anticipated, not very happy about this, but they are still wearable. I figure it's not a big deal since I only wear jeans to class and the library. Raw denim is amazing, I have literally worn the same pair for the entire semester because I have been trying to get le fades.

I'm 6'5" about 190 lbs. My waist is ~33 but I usually need a 34/35/36 (depending on the brand) for the length. I wear my jeans pretty slim, but I have gas tank calves so sometimes slimmer jeans look goofy on me. 

 

What size/style do yall think is best for someone my size?

 

 

I am 5'10" and usually weigh 160#.  My thighs are 21.5 inches.  True waist (just under my belly button) is 32.5 and wear my weird guys sit (at my hips) is 35 inches.  Pulled tight, the waist in my size 30 weird guy is currently 35 inches (measured 17.5 inches across).  I would expect any of the lighter weight NFs to stretch about 3 inches in the waist.  They are about 3 weeks old and I have worn them without a belt to allow them to stretch... they are held up by the fabric in the yoke and at the top of the pockets rather than the waist.  My only complaint about the weird guy fit is the tight crotch, but that has stretched out a bit.  I think that all of the weird guy inseams measure 35-36"

 

It sounds like we have drastically different body types but similar waist and thigh measurements, so I would say size 30 or 31 in weird guy if you want the taper.  I think tall people usually look better with straight jeans but I don't really pay that much attention to tall folks.  I have posted some fit pics of my jeans, both new and worn in, that you can find if you look through my posts.  I think you should look through the fit pics here or elsewhere (there are lots on hypebeast) to see what the different cuts look like on someone that is shaped similarly to you.

 

*i'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but hopefully this will help a little.

actually coping the jeans is not a problem since there are some sellers here. it's just that I can't try them on since the stores are located far far away, out of my city.

ok, measuring my current fitting pants, apparently my waist is 30". so the correct skinny guy size for me would be 29. but then the thigh and knee would be a little too tight for me. weird guy is a no go since the smallest thigh they have is 11.5". so I guess naked and famous is not for me? frown.gif

edit: just saw you reply, highway. hmmm, those measurements aren't too bad and might fit me. I was referring to Elephant/deep indigo measurements when I said it could be too tight. but I noticed that broken twill is only 13 oz in weight though. does it feel lightweight? because I'm looking for some rather stiff material.

the broken twill, and natural indigo revival (which measures the same) are both very light in comparison to the others. the elephant2s would be a better bet in a size 30, since most people choose to size up a little due to how stiff the denim is. those in a tagged size 30w and size 31" waist might work out well since the denim is really really stiff. someone else with a pair of e2s will have to say for sure, as i do not own a pair.

I'm 5'7 170lbs, 34.5" waist where I wear jeans with a low rise (natural 33" waist), 25" Thighs at crotch, 15" calves. I have an athletic build.
I'm looking at these WG in size 34 - WG elephant 34 #3 - - 35.85” waist, 10.25” rise, 12..5” thigh, 8.9” knee, 34.3” inseam, 8” leg opening
I think I might be a 33 in other Weird Guys, but with the Elephant 2 I might want to size up 1 because of the weight / thickness of the denim? or will a 33 stretch out to be just right and a 34 will be a bit too loose? I just feel weird buying a size 34" jean.. I've always been a small guy but I started working out heavily. I'm wearing a size 32 in APC NS.

I'm 5'7, but around 132lbs. I have elephant 2 weird guy 28 and they are perfect, if that helps at all. They do stretch out a bit, but not a lot.

for comparison, petit standard 28 are just a little too tight for me although the waist fits me well. I'm eyeing for skinny guy 30 right now although I'm afraid the waist would be slightly to big. skinny guy 29 is a no go since it would be too thin. alternative is weird guy 28-29 but I'm not too sure seeing the 11.25" thigh.
about the elephant, some people say they're uncomfortable. is it true? I've never worn heavyweight jeans before. my current (first raw) jeans are selvedge mishka and thinking of upgrading.
thanks

elephant 2's weird guy are not uncomfortable at all, i love them, but maybe it's me, they were a challenge at first, but that's half the fun.
