    as far as the fit goes I am a true 32 and the 32 fit snug all the way through (i have big calves and thighs). If have bigger legs and dont want the super tight look you may want to size up 1 for a baggier fit. Of course they will stretch a bit with wear but I haven't worn them enough to report on that yet.

    Hi!

    I just thought I'd post a pic of the Wierd Guy in Vintage Blue so you guys could see a pair on. They're really great jeans - the denim has a very nice texture that comes out as some of the surface starch wears off.

    They also soften substantially as well. This pair is about a week old but already they feel pretty good and I'm looking forward to breaking them in. The colour is great.

    I saw a few pairs of them at BiG when I was in NY a few weeks ago, and the color of the Vintage Blue was fascinating in person. I don't know if I'd actually buy and wear them, but they certainly stuck out in my memory in a positive way.

    Vintage Blue looks kinda like the PBJ XX-006/008 color. May have to check these out just to have some more variety.

    Anyone know the inseams on these?

    I like the vintage blue a lot. I was afraid the color would be too light from the original pictures, but these seem darker, which is good.

    I've worn mine for a solid 2 weeks and they have stretched a bit in the thigh area. They are really a great value for raw denim. I will try and get a photo of them up in a bit.

    i just got the vintage blue raw weird guy.

    on the other thread everybody thinking these are a bit boring and nothing to scream about. but the color for raw is the trump card going for these, i am very curious how these fade after a few months .

    I have a pair of them in black and I really dig 'em.
    I am actually considering adding a pair of the vintage blues too.
    For the price, I seriously think they're some of the best jeans going.
    keep us posted on the fades!

    Are the measurement provided in BiG after stretching? And if not, how much do these stretch after a good amount of wear?

    And what are the other retailers of NaF? I'm actually trying to find the Skinny Girl in a size 25 with a waist of 31 but BiG doesn't have it in stock.

    My Weird Guy Indigo Selvage 34's have stretched to nearly 38 inches measured (19x2), and have more stretch in them.

    Anybody notice the wonky sizing? Say, the Slim Guy Black Selvage at size 30 measured 33" actual. Which would suck, since even a 28 won't fit me at that rate.

    Well most waist sizes are not the actual measurement. Most of my 32" waist jeans really measure out to about 34.5". In fact, when I tried on a 32 in N&F they were way too small (couldn't come close to buttoning the top button.).

    Size down 0 I am pretty much a "true" 34 (SC 1947/5epXsf/ES Hutch). When I tried on the 33's they did not do up, the 34's did up but where tight, the 36's swam on me. Since not many people had experience with this brand, figured it was best to go on the safe side with a pair that fit. For frame of reference on stretching 5EPXSF 34, after washed a few times and wearing stetches to 37 SC1947 washed many times, stretches to 36 I figure these stretch so much as I wear them on my hips due to the low rise. As for quality time will tell. I bought these as a stop gap pair until my custom sydney's were done, so they are now getting treated and worn like a "normal" pair of jeans. The ass has nearly turned completely white due to riding, there is some lap creasing and fading, but not much as I wash these whenever I feel like it. So far no construction issues, maybe they should have marketed like ES's wabisabi and people would not have been turned off by sloppy stitching.

    I have the Big Slubs, and they really are pretty nice. They haven't stretched too much...yet, however i'm interested if mine get as big as it seems some others' have.

    Saw a lot of N&F in NY at Barney's Co-op and Blue in Green. For the price point they seem great. Denim is better than I expected and the cuts/colors are interesting. The vintage blue almost had me but I had to save some moooney. The silk denim wasn't what I was expecting, kind of glad I didn't get them earlier as they're darker and a little bit heavier than I wanted. The skinny guy black raws I bought (and am selling) fit true. For someone just jumping into denim I'd suggest N&F over Academi, especially considering Academi's quality control issues.
