    33-34 depending on how slim you want them to fit.

    I normally just give them a few strong tugs and I'm done.

    ...that's what she said

    Speaking of Nudies...

    How over-obvious are the arcuates on these things? I thought I could handle it but I guess I didn't plan on the pockets being this big/long and this low. Lend me your opinions please.

    I took a seam ripper to mine. A lot of people like them, but I find the back stitching obnoxious. With that said, I like the way those fit you -- gives a nice balance between top and bottom.

    I thought about that but for some reason it didn't seem right. It's about the only thing that doesn't fit in the picture...I think the paper tags even blend in more than the arcs.

    Edit: side thought, the Nudie arcs seem to come across like...I want to be raw-japanese-denim-unknown-cool but I want people to still know I paid a lot for my jeans.

    i know what you mean. I wore them for about a month and a half before I couldn't stand it. I do like them better without it, but like I said, it's a personal thing.

    Great fit on the SSDS regardless, Brutus. I love that cut.

    I agree the cut looks great, I'm not a big fan of the arcs but they look ok here

    Thanks.


    I think that the fit is perfect. They seem like they might be a little short but will settle no doubt. Those are 32 length I take it. Also, those are SS? They seem slimmer than I remember when I tried some on. Between the RR and the SS I went with the RR because they were slimmer in the knee area. But those SS look great on you.

    Size down 1 with the Nudies...I wear a 28 in APC NS and these Nudies I'm wearing (scroll up) are 29s.

    They are "32" length but I measured it and it's more like 32.5"-33". It's basically the perfect length for me (see the slight stacking in the back) but I had expected them to show up in a 34" length. I'm not too upset about that part.

    BTW, you guys have really confused me. I was planning to send them back. Maybe I'll just keep them and rip that dang arc out.

    Man, the choices we have to make in this world...[​IMG]
