Hmm. I've checked out several different N&F jeans but must be remembering them incorrectly. I do know that the nep selvedge in skinny guy cut as well as deep indigos (15oz) in the weird guy cut have a chain stitched hem, or at least the individual pairs that I own do. Oh, well. I still vote chain stitching for any hemming done to jeans, be they N&F or another brand.
