    Doesn't fading depend more on the person? But do you care how heavy they are, because if not the elephant 2's are pretty dark but not too sure as for how fast they'll fade lol

    they will likely fade very well. heavyweight tends to put more stress on the fabric and fade it hard. i have the 24OZ so first hand experience here. i'll take some pics of my 24oz for all.

    @Blazing those look great! I'm surprised to see such great fades but no wallet marks.

    If you are looking for a pair of hard fading denim ask Jay for some Triple Works permanent dye.

    I purposely rotated my wallet, phone and keys so I don't get the fades on them.


    just not a fan of a big square in the middle of my fade whiskers

    Just wanted to give a testimonial to N&F. I bought a pair of wool blend weird guys a while back and then started to come apart in a strange way, even though I couldn't have worn them more than 6 times. They totally stood by their product. Not only did N&F replace them, but were kind enough to send a different type I requested, a pair of black weird guys, because in the interim I bought another pair in a similar color to the wool blend. Was a really nice surprise.

    For all you ppl with the elephant 2s or the 24oz NF denim in the Weird Guy Fit

    How should I size for these if I wear my other weirdguys in a sz29? If the fabric is so heavy, should I go true to size (sz30) or down 1 like I did for the other models I have, red weave selvedge, grey selvedge and broken twill?

    Thanks and I've looked through the thread and couldn't find an answer.

    reg indigo fades fairly slowly

    VITAL QUESTION:

    Could I size up one on the MOMO X NF 1 skinny guy collab? Found a sweet deal for them but need to know sizing info.

    They're unsanforized right?

    I have reg indigo and momo x nf same size. (29) I havent worn my indigos in a while but I feel that they are tighter in waist and leg opening is a bit bigger. Waist is stretched to about 31.5 if that helps/

    I have a sizing question on the WG cut -

    The first 50-some odd pages of the thread suggest sizing down two from your waist size because of the vanity sizing. Is this still a legitimate recommendation, or has sizing been reworked since the start of the thread?

    I ask because I'm a true 34 and would prefer not to read any more e-pages. I size down to 33's in PBJ because of the waist stretch. Do I want to get my WG at 34, or down to a 33 or 32?

    Thanks in advance.

    33 or 32. Go look at Weird Guy measurements on Blue Owl's website.
