    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.

    mine blew in like 4 too.

    Does Nudie Slim Jim Straight Tubeleg fit similar to Levi's 514's?

    Can anyone find me a sizing chart of Crate Routes?

    I bought them in size 28 and they were super tight, but when I wore them for an hour and sat down the waist already stretched out an inch, lol.

    Maybe I shoulda got 27 but I don't think they make em in 27

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

    Thanks for your help! I was thinking something like these from Brooks Brothers, but those actual jeans is quite expensive plus that I live in Sweden where you can't even buy Brooks Brothers.

    Those just look like a light-washed 501...

    Yes, and that's what I'm looking for, basically. But it just seems impossible to find a pair of 501's these days with an over-the-waist rise, instead of the most common on-the-waist.

    What's the verdict on sizing raw vs. washed jeans?

    If I am a 33 in KMW 1950 Forge wash, should I get a 32 in 1950 raw or stick with the same size?

    I just bought some charcoal Corpus jeans (size 33 if anyone wants them PM me.) They seem like high quality. I haven't worn them though. I researched them a decent amount on the forum before buying and they got really good reviews. Search for Corpus and you will see some threads.

    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.

    Seam ripper and not every jean needs faded to shit. I wear SJ Black Coated to skirt the dress code at work. If I have a day of physical labor, I don't wear my real slim stuff, either. Plenty of reasons.

    Hi,

    New to the forum, sorry if I'm writing in wrong thread. Anyway, check out http://www.asos.com/Nice-Collective/...rt=-1&clr=Grey

    I'm totally in love with those jeans - could anyone possibly give me an answer of which jeans those are? It's not in the "Complete the look"-columns, as it often are.

    Please help me out!

    Cheers

    There is a pair of jeans in the 'Complete the look' column: http://www.asos.com/Nudie/Nudie-Regu...clr=UsedDeluxe It doesn't look exactly the same, but if you're buying pre-distressed it's similar enough. If you want a tighter fit like the model is wearing, maybe go for a different Nudie.
