    are you talking about this? right under the back pockets?

    i get that too and i think thats from your thighs holding the jeans up but the top block is loose and wants to sag so the excess material gets squished in between there

    Learned my lesson the hard way (the onis), but I now know how important thigh and rise measurements are

    Some cuts will probably not work in any size...

    have any of you guys hem your jeans after they have been washed and beaten? Kinda afraid after hemming it will look too unnatural. But I don't want to keep my 34" inseam PS's, too much stacking IMO

    Just get them hemmed and tell the tailor to keep the "original hem."

    I got my left hand twill about a week ago and they're great, except they're EXTREMELY rigid. So rigid, that they chafe my thighs. What should I do?

    do not keep the original hem. for a tailor to keep the original hem they cut of the original and sew it back on. if you ever cuffed the jeans again you would see where the original hem was sewn back on.

    You can warm soak the starch out and air dry, if you want. A massage after drying will leave you a bit softer, better breathing pair.

    I'm thinking of getting the Dirty Fades, and getting them hemmed. How much do these shrink? I asked the online store and they say they're sanforized, so I was thinking an inch for good measure?

    Sanforized isnt a perfect process so you can expect 2% shrinkage. 2% on a 35in inseam is 0.7in.

    Received my two NF Navajo motif shirts in the mail today from Park & Bond. The fit on these are super slim, the shoulders on the two shirts are better then some of the tailored shirts I own. The inseam is, naturally, too long on my short torso and despite the narrow waist I like the darted detail and the fact that this fits more like a dress shirt then anything else. That being said, I think the collar could have been brought down a smiggen and the oxford style buttons could have been replaced for something less "bulky". All in all I love this shirt may have to tuck it in for now until I decide wether or not I am keeping both.

    here are some fit pics

    the second one looks like it is pulling across the chest. i like a slim fit too but that might be a little too tight....
