    It always seems me and N&F sizing don't go along.

    The first skinny guys I got (Camo selvage) were made smaller than usual and when I decide to go weird guy(Big John) the cut is bigger than usual... -_-

    So i purchased a pair of NF slim guys in 32 a while back, not following the advice given to me here, and they are indeed too big in the waist. Has this happened to anyone else, and if so how did you fix the problem. I would like the jeans to fit without having to put a belt on because you get "build up" of fabric when I put a belt on because they are loose.

    Thanks

    This happens to me. I get the smallest size possible. And while the butt stays really tight, the waist gets huge.

    Depending on the material, you can likely shrink the waist 1" with a wash and dry.

    That's pretty useless. It will just degrade the denim and within a few days of wear will stretch back to what it was, or close to it.

    belts stop unwanted stretching to some degree.

    That's not wrong. Sure, it won't destroy it, but a wash and hot dry will have a damaging effect on it. It's not a huge deal, but is not ideal at all. Every time I've done that I've felt I was back to were I was before within a week, with less rigid denim. Even when washed inside out. I'm just saying I don't think it does all that much with sanforized denim, which is what N&F sells.

    Haven't met a denim from N&F that won't shrink a solid inch, san'd or not. Save your breath.

Skinny Guy is currently in production and will be available mid-August. Price $165.

    Left Hand Twill - We just described LHT in our last blog post. LHT is a 13.75oz selvedge in indigo and available in both Skinny Guy (photographed above) and Weird Guy fits and both are on their way and will be in store around July 18th. Price $140.

    Those look good, but the cuffs break your vertical line and make you look shorter. Maybe post a picture of the jeans backwards rolled, (so it appears as though you've hemmed them) and compare with the stacks/cuffs look, and see which looks better.

    I hope the new collabs are not Barney's exclusive so I can actually buy & get them hemmed at Jay's.
