    I have 2 new pairs of WG and both are downsized 2, they fit perfectly. I wouldn't dare get a size bigger. But that is just me, and I don't like baggy jeans.

    My momo collabs are pretty baggy in the legs imo. I could downsize 1 to get the legs to fit, but then the waist would be tight.

    its not vanity sized, i wear 34 in non-raw jeans and other pants and the weird guys actually fit smaller than all of them


    its only vanity sized for people that consider only being able button two buttons a good thing

    Due to a sizing error I just made, I would highly recommend trying a few sizes. I tried a 32 in WG in Store A. Fit great. Ordered the same WG in 32 from store B and they were much too tight. Maybe it was me, dunno, but just be careful with sizing.

    I think that it may be indeed a good thing if it's going to stretch an inch or two over time.

    Every cut N&F makes has a larger waist than the tagged size. Denim with a larger waist than the tagged size is vanity sized. Your logic is faulty.


    It's not you. You got screwed by machining and / or fabric variance.

    Yeah it's the fabric you chose. 14 oz. vs. 22oz. vs 8 oz. is a huge difference.

    Just waiting for my Slim Guy Nep Selvedge jeans to arrive, courtesy of the Epaulet sale... the last pairs they had were just my size. Is it wrong to be so excited?

    This means that your non-raw jeans are also vanity sized.

    Vanity sizing refers to your truewaist, your true waist is likely ~36-37"

    My actual waist measurement is 32 and I fit size 29 or 30 WeirdGuy (tight when new).

    I find that the fit varies by fabric, and even then two pairs of jeans in the same fabric can fit slightly differently.

    The best way to avoid reading more e-pages is to find retail shop and try them on before you buy 'em. :)

    The Momo collab is sanforized.

    I find that they fit in the waist and seat area similarly to other SkinnyGuys I own, but seem to fit a little bigger in the knee and leg opening. They are also longer than most other SG.

    I wouldn't size up.

    I sized down from 30 to 29. They are indeed tight in the waist, and after over 6 months still fit snug but are adequately stretched. They were baggy in the legs in my first pair, which was TTS at 30.
