    Yes I agree. Most of the Weirdguys have around a 15" leg opening total. I think something slightly smaller (maybe 14" or 14.5") would be better.

    If you think they aren't tapered enough, you need to size down more and if you aren't into sizing down, there's the Skinny Guys.

    If you think the WGs aren't tapered enough you probably have a combination of chicken legs and a fat waist. I have small size 8 feet and my sz30 ele2s have a 15" hem and frank2s also size 30 with a 14" hem. Both are fine to me


    I thought SG weren't very tapered because I've heard of people wanting them more tapered or maybe I'm thinking about UB skinnies

    Just the indigo selvedge and lightweight selvedge for now. selvedge duck will be available for fall.

    The Skinny Guy doesn't really taper at all.

    The Super Skinny Guy on the other hand, will taper about an inch from the knee down.

    Get them chainstitch hemmed. Blueowl, Tate+Yoko, Denim Therapy and many others will do it for around 25 bucks plus the cost of shipping. This is the best option if you want to cuff them, just get them like an inch longer than normal.

    Got my tees today and I can say that I'm very happy with them. They are relaxed in the body without looking sloppy, but still very slim in the arms. They are longer than I expected, so we'll see if they hit the sweet spot after a wash. Very good t-shirts for build guys or lanky mofo's!

    Happy to hear!

    They were made a little long to compensate for the amount of vertical shrinkage, so you should be happy with the length after a wash.

    LOL can someone who can fit into a pair of jeans called 'super skinny guy' even still be considered a guy? im sure nudie fans already do that though


    what i wore yesterday, nf indigo denim jacket + frank2s. super light 'jacket', im just wearing it as a button down shirt
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    was also wondering what the weave is for the indigo denim jacket? i didnt notice it before from pictures but its not a lht/rht/bt. i noticed the natural indigo is a rht and the black power stretch im guessing has its own twill properties because its stretch denim.

    Naturally, I find this out after I've already bought a pair of WGs off B&S. :fu:

    Ah well...I'll probably buy 'em anyway...possibly two pairs so I make sure I get the sizing right. :embar:

    I believe this one is still in experimental stage. This is one I have been pushing to have made for years and I think the first few pieces were just produced. I have not seen a sample yet, but it should be essentially a skinny guy with a more narrow leg opening. There will be more details coming out in the near future.

    Naked & Famous: Hand-Made Clip-on Bow Ties [​IMG] A new batch of Naked & Famous clip on bow ties has just arrived. This batch included a lot of repeat styles from last production and 2 new styles that use a really fun soft washed cotton polka dot fabric. N&F bow ties are hand-made in very small batches by a tie maker in Canada and use dead-stock clip-on tie hardware from Ormand NYC. The fabrics used are the same Japanese denim and shirting fabrics N&F uses on their clothing line. Here are the two new designs, others can be seen on our website and as of right now 10 different styles are available. Naked & Famous Washed Cotton White with Navy Polka Dots Clip-on Bow Tie * Vintage dead-stock clip-on hardware from Ormand NYC * Each are handmade in small quantities * Made in Canada [​IMG][​IMG]

    So I've been looking to get my first pair of N&Fs. I've been looking at some Slim Guys, though I haven't heard much mention of them on SF. What are your thoughts on them?

    For context i'm 5'5'' 134 pounds, 30' tts, 18'' thighs, with a slim/toned build.

    Thanks!

    Slim guys are decent denim, but definitely don't get as much love here as the other cuts.

    Depends on the fit you want. Even in a the smallest size; a 28, your thighs will be swimming in them because they're 4" smaller than the jeans.

    Mind=blown at 18" thighs....
