    Wait, so N&F is making two new cuts the regular guy and weird guy highs? or are the highs replacing the original?

    I could've sworn the weird guy highs were just the new paul rose ones.

    I'm not really sure what's going on, maybe the regular guy is replacing the slim guy cut and there will be two versions of the weird guy

    For what it's worth (regarding the Regular Guy = LVC '47 501) -

    Having come from straight leg repros and gotten into more tapered stuff later, this is good to hear. I have a pair of '47s that I've had for almost a year and half, and every single time I put them on, I'm amazed by how flattering they are and the silhouette they form. It's a great looking cut that will look good on just about anyone. I was excited when I saw on Blue Owl that the basic PaulRose (sp?) denim will be cut from this pattern as well. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's come into raw denim via N&F and is looking to diversify a bit.

    fit pics?
    i have never worn 501s so i dunno if those would look good on me at all...

    Also, what is the consensus on the Slim Guy fit? the pair i just got seem alittle loose and relaxed for a "slim" straight leg.

    My body measurements don't add up to the sizes I buy.

    I measure my waist (at the place I wear my jeans) as a 31. My sz 28 Weird guys have stretched out to measure a 30.5 waist when I pull them tight. Yet when I put them on they fit almost loose in the waist unless I have a belt.

    Eh????

    Anyway, they fit me really well because I have skinnier legs. Not tight at all.

    The question is...what size am I in skinny guy???

    I'd have them hemmed, but that fit is spot on. Hopefully they are close to that...

    They should make some Weird Guys in the stretch materials like Wax Stretch Indigo Weird Guys would be a definite purchase

    if i wear a 34 in WG Indigo and was able to do the top button first wear, would i be able to fit into a 33 WG Ducks? All the measurements seem fine i am just worried about the waist. I can not find a 34 in the ducks anywhere.. uncle otis had them 2 days ago but now that i am ready to order they say BACKORDER. How much do the ducks stretch and how fast? Thanks guys.

    edit: shit... the 33's are on backorder too, looks like i am going to have to wait on them. gotta rethink what i am going to wear on NYE now.. if anybody has 34 WG Duck Canvas and wants to sell let me know.

    Do you have a fit pic of how the 34 Indigo WG's look like on you? You MAY be bale to do a 33 in the WG Ducks. I swore I gave my friend a site to get her boyfriend a 34 in the WG Ducks, I just gotta remember the site first. Not sure about the stretching just yet since I haven't worn mines yet though they weren't/didn't seem as Skinny as my Grey Selvedge WG.

    From what I remember, Brandon told me WG High would be out for the S/S 2012 so I'm thinking F/W 2012 since he didn't mention the Regular Guy.
