1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have a pair of 5EP x SF and I wish I sized an extra size down as the overall fit is good but they’re a little too baggy in the bum area.

    As such I don’t wear them nearly as much as I would like to because I don’t think they look good.

    Is there any way to have the space in this area reduced ie. tailor to take them in? Can this be done, would it be recommended ?

    Thanks

    You can definitely size one down in the SJ (ie, get a 30), especially if you want a slimmer fit and are accounting for stretch. The general rule of thumb with nudie is to size down one in just about every model except the Thin Finn which you should typically stick to your usual size.
    I personally would size down 2 in AJ's, they can look really great sized down, like the pictures on SelfEdge

    At least if you want it to look like that after stretch. I'm a true 31 and bought a 30, I regret not getting a size smaller. Although I heard someone say their AJDS's shrunk up and never stretched out quite as much, so we'll see what happens after a wash.

    That looks a bit tight for most people who buy a regular slim cut. There's a reason why it's not called the Thin Finn.

    I'm planning to buy a pair of classic, straight jeans, like Levi's 501, but the problem is I can't seem to find a pair that's cut to be worn ABOVE the waist, and not ON the waist as seems to be the most common these days. Anyone here know where to look?

    Why do people buy Nudies? The arcs are horrible and you are 100% guaranteed a disastrous crotch blowout if you get a raw pair and wear them to fade.

    Imperial King has 12" rise. most full repro models have 12 & up rises__ eg, Denime XX type, Fullcount, Evisu, WWII cuts, etc.

    They have a higher rate of blowouts than any comparably priced denims. That doesn't mean you'll get them, it just means a lot of people do. A friend of mine had his Nudie's blowout in 4 months.
