post #8926 of 13312

Anyone heard anything new on the "Low Tension" weird guy coming out?  They remind me of the Japan Heritage's but cheaper.

So I'm going to pick up a pair of N&F jeans, I've got the measurements down pat and everything, but I wanted to know, should I get:

"Elephant 2" Skinny Guy 22oz Selvedge Denim in Deep Indigo

OR

"Skinny Guy" 15oz Deep Indigo Selvedge Denim

I realize the Elephant 2 is a lot heavier than the other one. The only other jeans I've had are GAP jeans and the Unbranded which I think were 12.5 oz. Would I find the Elephant 2 too much, or should I go for it?

Thanks!

The unbrandeds are 14.5oz so they're probably pretty similar to the deep indigos. I'd say go for the ele2s if you're up for the challenge

Just took a look in the warehouse and they're definitely gone. Don't know who else would have the skinnysuit at this point.

It's nice. fabric is smooth and the weave really shows through. It's a little different from the Japan Heritage. I took some shots last week of it.. here's one:

Get both!

Also, the Low Tension Selvedge has a thick Buffalo leather patch which will fade nicely with wear and is damn cool.

Hey-hey.

 

Perhaps a daft question, but is the skinny guy going to have less ball divison/crotch crush than the weird guy?  I notice the WG is described as low rise and the SkG as medium rise, but the front rise measurements on Tate & Yoko suggest WG is 1/2" higher/longer???  I have a pair of WG and find them a bit divisionary.  Will the SkG accommodate my needs better (leaving aside the obvious other measurement differences)?

 

Cheers

I require some guidance regarding the N&F Fit and sizing

My measurements are as follows:

WAist - 33inches

Thigh - 20 inches

calf - 13 inch

I am 5"10(155lbs) so i usually wear a Jeans with an Outseam of 42 Inches as i am not comfortable with stacking.

Just wanted to find out which fit (Skinny/WG) would make more sense for me to get and what size should i get in that. I was leaning towards WG since i do not want skinny jeans and the inseam is around 33".

Thanks for reading!

^ look at TateandYoko.com: they have all measurements for both styles.  Also bear in mind some materials stretch up to 2", and some very little.

The rise should traditionally suggest where the denim sits around your waist. Low rise being significantly below the belly button, high rise being at or above. It is more than the simple length of the rise as the details of the cut can cause the denim to "suggest" it be worn higher or lower. For example, if the denim has a bit more lap / glute room and the waist band comes in a bit, it will "suggest" that you wear the waistband closer to your bellybutton (if you are a "fit" male). Between a WG suggesting low rise plus having an extra half inch length, you could assume it will have more ball space, however your body morphology and the size you buy dramatically alter the fit.

Hmm.  Perhaps I got one size too small and am forced to pull it higher than it is meant to be worn.

 

Do you have jeans in both styles?  I guess i'm just asking people with both styles which they find is more roomy in the crotch, and do they all go up one size in the SkG?

Thanks! Though can you give an example of something that stretches a lot?

Also thinking about getting the 12.5oz natural indigo in either slim guy 32 or skinny 34. Looking for a new slim straight, my apc NS sized 30 has gotten too tight in the hip and thigh area (been doing squats @ the gym lately and have gained some weight) What do you guys think?

I have the natural indigo slim guys in a 31 and you are about the same size as me. I like the fit
