    hmm odd, but nice to know.. wish i could try on a pair of skinnyguy deep indigo.
    i have some meat 10.75 thigh is ok for me.. but sometimes i forget to take into account that i have a quite a meaty ass and rise of certain jeans..
    but damn the wg back rise is quite horrible too..

    if possible, could you post a fit pic of you in the deep indigo or post some measurements? although i doubt they stretch a lot..

    Idk what I am doing wrong but I have some indigo selvedge 13.5 oz jeans that I have been wearing for about 3 months and I hardly see any fades or wiskers. I have honey combs kind of, but how do I create fades on my denim. It seems like they just won't fade.

    these are basically the ones I have.

    So what you're saying is that over a long period of time they fade to blue like any other jean?
    How prominently does the red show?

    In my experience, and from what I've read on the internet, N&F are stubborn when it comes to fades so you'll have to be patient. I biked and walked a lot in mine and they've started to fade but it took a while.

    + the regular indigo selvedge are not known for fading too much. I'm working on a pair of the same ones, and it's been a long time but i'm just starting to see fades. I feel I can get some good fades on this stubborn pair but I know I have to avoid washing for a long time.

    yeah well some low shoes can work. chucks work well and i would imagine boat shoes are gonna work well too. chukkas definitely look good with WG pants.

    please dont wear boat shoes jeans. In my opinion it just looks out of place. Buy loafers if you must. I wear chucks most of the time but since winter is hear I have been considering buying a casual boot to wear with them. but I feel that the WG leg opening is not wide enough.

    So I am a 31 WG, I currently own the glow in the dark and I am planing on purchasing the elephant 2's (22oz deep indigo), gray (15 oz I believe), and the red weft (14oz??).

    Do you guys suggest I stay with the same size in the elephant 2's? The glow in the dark pair took a while (about a month) of solid wearing to finally fit without being uncomfortable on the waist. Do the elephant 2's stretch as much as the glow in the dark?

    Atrium said 14oz with a 35 inseam.

    32-34 measurements
    Size 32
    Thigh = 10in 27cm
    Leg Opening = 7in

    Size 33
    Thigh = 11in
    Leg Opening = 7in 19cm

    Size 34
    Thigh = 11in 29cm
    Leg Opening = 8in
    Not sure if the waists are on or not, I don't think the email person knew what I meant when I asked for waist measurements.

    I wear WGs with brogued oxfords a lot. The small leg opening goes well with that kind of shoe, I think.
