    your options will likely be

    A: return/exchange for another pair
    B: send the denim to montreal for repair
    C: order a replacement button/rivet from N&F (free) and have it fixed locally


    How much would it cost to have the button fixed?

    I had some jeans sent back to them once for repairs and it was $17 just to ship them.

    My top button just popped off on my 26oz NF Black Denim jeans.

    I'm kinda choked.
    Should I go back to the retail store?

    I think the best way to go is to exchange them for another pair if you can. I've had a loose button fixed by the manufacturer before (Samurai, not N&F), and that button came loose again pretty easily.

    Replacing the button can be problematic as well. I've been told by a different jeans manufacturer (William Kroll of Tender) that when you replace a button on a pair of jeans, it's never the same as the original button. The replacement button is always a little bit looser because of the hole that the original button made in the denim.

    I'm looking to pick up my first pair of Weird Guys. I'm kind of torn between the Indigo, Broken Twills, and Deep Indigo. I've been reading around and the Indigo's seem like a huge PITA to wear in and fade. The Deep Indigo's are really popular and standard pair, but the broken twills looks very similar and cheaper. What should I go for?

    DI probably fades faster, although it had been said on Hypebeast that BT's are no slouch.

    Absolutely right, but if nothing else can be done, the old button hole area (i mean the hole punched by the button/rivet) can be patched and then a new button can be installed.
    You need some sewing skill and elbow grease or a denim friendly tailor

    That's about a year of wear right there, almost daily. I've washed them maybe 6 times? I have to wash more than some since I occasionally get olive oil on them at my job.

    i'm not sure how much it would cost to have the rivet punched back in, i actually haven't had mine fixed yet, they need a kick press or something though

    What makes the elephants different from just normal indigo?
    Is it just more rigid?

    I already have a pair of nudies in indigo but want another pair of denim.

    I like the look of NF, should I just get the blacks in Skinny Guy or is there a vast difference between say the elephants and my nudies?

    Do all NF stretch the same in with regardless of style and the makeup of the jeans (ie some has elastane)?

    If so, what's the general rule? Stretch an inch?
