    I'm working on it. I have the 21oz slimguy indigo slub and after about 3 months and 1 soak the fades are beginning to set in around all areas; wallet first. I'll post up when it gets a little more prominent.

    Thanks, look forward to it

    I just saw the black Naked and Famous jeans with gold and silver selvedge at Uncle Otis - interesting look! I've never seen that before.

    Unfortunately, these damn jeans just don't fit me. I've tried them on multiple times, and I can't fit my big thighs into it. Either the waist is too large, or the thighs are too tight. I've got to stop cycling. And lose some weight!

    weird guy is NOT skinny cut. had a few, sized down 1, fits like a sized down 2 NS. weird guy can be worn skinny or straight with slight taper.

    anyone know if this holds true for the grey weird guy? have concerns about stretching, thinking about sizing down 1 for slim straight fit

    Sizing for WeirdGuy is typically 1 to 2 sizes less than your true waist, depending on your body type and the denim type (i.e. some will shrink/stretch more than others).

    Just to clarify, the WeirdGuy is a taper cut. It is definitely not a straight cut. If you are looking for a slim straight, the SkinnyGuy or SlimGuy are more straight cut (the former is cut slimmer than the latter). BlueInGreen has measurements for the different cuts for comparison.

    i own 4 pairs of naked and famous. weird guy indigo 33, slim guy cashmere 33, slim guy black selvedge 33, and skinny guy silk 34. i had questions before buying all of them re material wear and fit. so i called the number on the website. spoke to the guy who answered all my questions. call them if you have questions. i honestly don't think there's a company right now with better fits, denims, prices, and customer service. but what the hell do i know, i'm still pretty new here.

    I agree, I own 3 pairs of N&F and they are all great. The grey indigo have a bit more stretch in them as the denim isnt as heavy as the weird guys but doesnt really effect the waist size. I have a pair of weird guys that I bought about 1.5 years ago and I havent washed them yet (dont wear everyday, maybe 2-3 a week) and I love them, only problem is the button has pooped off about 6 times. Great denim though, great price.

    Whenever I have a couple hours to myself, I run into my bedroom, throw on a pair of N&F's, and start doing jumping jacks. If I'm lucky, they'll be broken in for Spring. They better be.

    I want to find somebody in NYC that stocks the 21 oz slim guy. I'm tired of buying jeans online that end up not fitting.

    Can you post pics of how your regular indigo faded? Also, to anyone else that owns weird guy regular indigo, can you post pics? I just bought a pair of weird guys regular indigo... I like the fit, but the only fade pics I've seen of weird guys were deep indigo, and they looked quite nice, I don't want to be dissapointed and find out that regular indigo doesn't fade well, I seem to actually remember reading that somewhere [​IMG] Anyone know?

    Anyone know where I can find measurements for the Slimguy 21oz deep indigo? They're not on Blue in Green or Tobi or anything I've searched for.

    i've only had my regular indigo weird guys for 3 months. wallet and front pocket fade beginning, but it's subtle right now. my guess is these will take 6 months before noticeable fading hits.

    anyone with the cashmere pair wash theirs yet?
    does it turn "super soft" after a wash (read this in a interview with N&F owner)

    The one problem I have faced with N & F is that the buttons pop out very easily. I bought a 21oz from bangkok and when I tried it in the hotel room the button popped out. Took it back to the store and they replaced it. The buttons of the replaced jeans also popped out after a week but by this time I was back in Delhi so could not return it.
