    Naked & Famous: Inidigo/Indigo Weird Guy (first spring 2012 release) [​IMG][​IMG] Introducing the much anticipated "indigo/indigo" Weird Guy 15oz selvedge denim which uses a rare big slub yarn and has a warp and weft dyed indigo. The indigo interior yarn (weft) creates the solid color throughout the fabric and hides the bumpy "slubby" surface appearance, but still keeps the subtle and beautiful texture. Only 450 pairs were made in this run and no additional run is anticipated any time soon, meaning these could go fast. We just received a shipment and have a second in route that will be here before Christmas. If you are serious about getting this denim, jump on it ASAP. Naked & Famous "Inidgo/Indigo" Weird Guy 15oz Selvedge Denim - Made with a slub yarn 15oz sanforized Japanese selvedge denim with metalic red edges - Sizes 28-34 - 1/8" thick leather patch - 100% cotton - Warp and weft dyed indigo - Fabric made in Japan, denim assembled in Canada [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    where did you hear this from??? I am thinking I can only wear the slim guy cut from now on....I am coming to the conclusion that the weird guy cut is to small for me (the thighs are to slim, and I am thinking the rise is to low for me). My indigo/indigo WG's are just not comfortable to wear (I only continue to wear them due to the competition) and I can forget about ever using the front pockets haha. I do have a pair of slim guys that I was going to take to the tailor to have them slim down the legs past the knee. I am not a big fan of how wide the leg opening is but the rest of the cut is nice.

    What? You realize the WG is way larger in the thighs and has more rise than the skinny guy, right? That's the whole point of the WG, roomy thigh with taper.

    quick example:

    SG

    * Size 30 (31" waist, 9.5" rise, 10.5" thigh, 7.75" knee, 37" inseam, 7.2" leg opening)
    * Size 31 (32" waist, 9.5" rise, 11" thigh, 8.1" knee, 37" inseam, 7.5" leg opening)
    * Size 32 (33" waist, 9.75" rise, 11.25" thigh, 8.25" knee, 37" inseam, 7.65" leg opening)
    * Size 33 (34.5" waist, 10" rise, 11.25" thigh, 8.5" knee, 37" inseam, 7.8" leg opening)

    WG

    * Size 30 (32.5" waist, 10" rise, 11.75" thigh, 8.35" knee, 35" inseam, 7.2" leg opening)
    * Size 31 (33.5" waist, 10.25" rise, 12" thigh, 8.5" knee, 35" inseam, 7.5" leg opening)
    * Size 32 (34.5" waist, 10.25" rise, 12.25" thigh, 8.75" knee, 35" inseam, 7.65" leg opening)
    * Size 33 (35.5" waist, 10.5" rise, 12.5" thigh, 9" knee, 35" inseam, 7.8" leg opening)

    Slim guy is not going anywhere! I am pushing to get a few special runs made in the near future. For spring, they are conitnuing with several styles that have been around and a couple of new ones. Here is what I know will be available over the next couple months:

    Selvedge Chino
    Lightweight Painter
    Black Selvedge
    Natural Indigo
    Broken Twill
    Solid Black

    There will also be the "regular guy" fit which has a first production coming out next week in a natural indigo denim. The Paulrose line has a 1947 fit called heritage which will give another option for a similar fit.


    This is why there are not more options in the Slim Guy fit. It is catching on, but the Weird Guy is by far more popular because it is a similar in thighs to the Slim Guy and will taper to a smaller leg opening.

    But if you are interested in more Slim Guy fits, I cannot stress enough....please be more vocal! Naked & Famous is listening, but it takes local retailers to purchase the Slim Guy fit and it is the local retailer that needs to see the demand. There needs to be at least 100 pairs or more made to make a denim run worth making, right now I am confidient I can do 20-40 pairs, which means I need 2 or 3 more stores minumum to get the additional denims to do any really crazy fabrics. So keep talking with you local retailers!

    How is the sizing for N+F belts? I'm a 32 for most pants and a 30 for most raw denim. 34? 36?

    Most likely you are a 32 belt. If you are familiar with N&F denims, I am a Weird Guy 30 and Skinny Guy 31 and wear a 32 natural belt on the 2nd hole. If you still have trouble figuring it out, measure a belt you already own and compare to the meausrements on our site.

    My bad. You're right, the measurements I posted were Weird Guy vs. Skinny Guy.

    Tried the Slim Guy once and despised the fit. lol. For reference my thighs are around 24-24.5" and WG fits great.

    The Slim Guy has the same rise as the Weird Guy. I wear size 32 in both, and I measured the front rise at 10.5" on both cuts.

    I don't find that they fit that differently in the upper thigh, but the Weird Guy is a lot tighter around the knees and calves due to its extreme taper.
