    I think I'm going to pick up some Long Johns. The fit on the Nudie Fit Guide looks fantastic. The fit on most people in the MyNudies gallery look awful.

    I think I may size up one to try and get that same fit as the Nudie Fit Guide model - anyone tried something similar? Curious to hear opinions.

    I hope you are also wearing cutoff fatigues and a wool cap.

    Got my Long Johns today. Damn, they're perfect. Exactly, 100% what I wanted and was expecting. Incredibly comfortable, loose, semi-anti-fit waist (sized up one), long enough for some rucking at the bottom (but not over the edge) and super fitted in the thighs and calves.

    Any fear of discomfort is unwarranted, really. They're probably the most comfortable jeans I own now.

    Higher than Finns, Jims and Ralfs, lower than APC.

    Skalgore, I'll have pictures as soon as I find my little camera docking thing.

    wow, I'd love to see them Brian. I'm getting all excited from your description. (No, not that kind of excited, unfortunately...)

    I wish my Dior 19cms were just a little less tight in the thigh and then they'd fit exactly as you described :\\

    That's wierd. IME, the Jims fit lower than the APC NS, but the APC NS fit higher than the Ralphs. Not that I've ever measured them, but that's how they feel. Maybe it's time to pull out the old tape measure.

    da new Edwin x Vans line is da shits there r jeans n matchn shooz werd u suckas prolly dont even knw bout this so a minute behind lolz

    Haha. Hmmm.. I may have described it incorrectly, though I think we agree.

    I'll just draw a fancy shmancy chart.

    HIGH (back pockets, crotch)
    --
    APC Hipsters
    APC New Standards
    Nudie Long Johns
    Nudie Ralfs
    Nudie Slim Jims / Finns
    LOW

    HIGH (rise)
    --
    APC New Standards
    Nudie Ralfs
    Nudie Slim Jims / Finns
    Nudie Long Johns
    Hipsters
    LOW

    So the rise is low in front and back, but the actual crotch and where the pockets sit is pretty low.

    Hm, I should learn to read. I was thinking about the rise, not the pockets. Yeah, definitely every pair of Nudies I've seen have dropped pockets (both front and back) and the APCs sit fairly high comparatively. I stand corrected.

    Still, u haveto admit u djnt knw about the edwinsxvans collab though

    I noticed what you mean. Looks like that when I'm standing that way, but in normal position and when walking around, it's much looser and the pockets don't hug the ass. I'd be cool if they stretched out a bit, though I don't think they'll stretch at all as they have 2.5% stretch material.

    Umm, hadn't you heard? Nudie is dead.
