    asked jay too.

    "Duck cloth may not get as much wear as everyday denim, thus not as much stretch, so being a touch loose might be better. Definitely do not size down to the point of being skin tight in the waist line, go for a comfortable fit on these and you will be happy."

    Actually this pic isnt bad. They don't seem that much baggier on that one :) Well I think anyways. I used to wear baggy back in times and that's so far from it... ;) I think I'll hem like 5cm.

    ^noticeably baggy imo, especially since this is the skinny guy cut and the momo's are known to stretch a bit. you should benefit from sizing down one from the size you're wearing in that pic for a more fitted look.

    yeah I'm aware of that, but aren't the one's he's trying on the skinny guys? either way, I tell most people who are unsure of nf sizing to go one down for most fabrics.

    I don't know if sizing down is the problem. My NF x Momo 1 are fairly tight on the waist but a little baggy everywhere below. Weird guy's might have a different taper? But my Skinny guy's definitely aren't slim fitting on the bottom half.

    Well I was pretty sure on the sizing, i have 4 other pairs of NF ;) anyways i wasnt looking for something ultra skinny so this little baggy feeling is really ok to me in the end.
    I think they look great and the fit is cool! I tried today with a double little cuff and it's even better.

    I think they look good man. I personally like some breathing room. I love N&F, but I'm not willing to sacrifice my balls for jeans! I go TTS, period.

    Wondering if anybody has the Denim jacket yet? Holt Calgary didn't have any in stock yet to try on so I'm curious about sizing. I wear a Medium in their Hoodies, Cardigans and SlimShirt.

    just snagged a new selvedge flannel slimshirt, it's more of a relaxed fit then the other shirts

    Question for you guys....I soaked my Weird Guy Deep Indigo with only about 20 easy wears just to see how much they would shrink. I lost the stiffness of them which i kinda miss. But, do you guys think I should have waited longer before I soaked?

    What are you guys opinion on soaking your sanforized denim? I know it wont really affect the fading since other companies you have to soak first but it doesn't seem like my combs and wiskers are setting in as sharply as I'd like. I mean I guess I could get some starch and starch them..

    Yeah, I like the roomier feel of the skinny guy on the NFxMomo than the reg NF skinny guys.

    Most people will say you soaked waaaay too early, but then there's the camp of people who always soak their denim before their first wear. I think the generally accepted "pros" of soaking early is it removes all the factory chemicals and starches so your denim is a wee bit closer to loomstate (except it got wet..lol), and though your denim may not have high-contrast fades because of the lost indigo and stiffness, it SHOULD fade quicker. My experience with starching is that it's inconsistent between pairs (even if I spray the same amount) and the crunchiness goes away with just a few wears.
