    The crotch doesn't stretch and thighs only really stretch if they're forced too, ie lots of wears.

    I've been trying the technique using a spray bottle to dampen them and then just wearing them around trying to stretch them, it doesn't seem to be working too well though. Should the denim just be damp or should they be significantly wet? I pretty much can't feel the water in the inside of the denim so I guess it isn't soaking all the way through so that could be a problem I suppose? I'll keep trying it for now.

    If they don't fit they don't fit.

    karanimal,

    Don't post pics of your smashed nuts again without putting it behind a spoiler and caution warning FFS.

    TIA.

    Anybody think the old 12oz indigo/indigos will ever be re-released? Can't find anything comparable from other brands...

    They're gone dude. Plenty of brands offer indigo/indigo.

    ^ Yeah, but a lot of them are effectively black.

    I'm very happy with my 3rd pair of Naked and Famous that I got for Christmas!

    Now I have:

    Glow in the Dark (2013)

    Cashmere Stretch (2013)

    Super Slub (Xmas 2013)

    They're not the most hardwearing jeans I've ever had, but they Are fun, and seem to fit pretty well, and are Japanese denim!

    Maybe I'll try the Thermochromic ones next, or the Black Power stretch

    So many things to buy...so little time!!:)

    Thanks for posting this - I have been wearing my Greencasts quite a bit lately and figured in the next month they will get their first wash - interesting to see how they fade out.

    This makes no sense... And you know it.

    Indigo warp and indigo weft doesn't mean jeans are black.

    Also... PBJ offers Indigo/Indigo models, the XX-007 for instance. Though you have to like slub.

    Hence "effectively". Surprisingly hard to find a description of any given pair of indi/indis that doesn't contain the phrase "appears black in most lighting" or some variation.

    isn't that the point of indigo/indigos? i.e appears black but is in fact, not.
    tempted to get the kamikaze collab myself.

    I've heard the Kamikaze collab kind of sucks quality-wise. Lots of blowouts and holes.

    I think that's the appeal in a lot of cases, but I like the ones that just offer a dark, consistent indigo colour as well.

    Does anybody else with the cashmere stretch find that they keep going saggy....meaning you have to wash them quite often..6 months of not washing means they would fall down!!!

    They're still nice and warm for winter..but I'll probably wear them into holes by the end of the year as they don't seem that hardwearing (only 12oz).. I like my 21oz jeans best:)
