    first make sure you are wearing them properly. the front is supposed to sit lower than the back side. look at your profile in a mirror and adjust accordingly. that may help a little bit.

    your complaint is my biggest issue with NF Weird Guys but I got a decent fit on my new pomegrantes (pics a few pages back). its not as comfortable as my 3sixteens but it's definitely wearable. try different underwear...if you wear boxers try boxer briefs that will support your junk and keep it up higher...

    I wear boxer briefs and adjusted the way I wear them... there just isn't enough room for my junk. Oh well... so much for N&F, I can't wear them... I like the Big Slub fabric but the fit just doesn't work. Size 31s going up on ebay today...

    keep trying to adjust them until you like them

    fit looks fine, the waist will stretch and theyll end up sitting a bit lower. youve only worn them once, you havent even broken them in yet. id expect to break in heavier denim at home first before wearing them out

    don't stress too much over the stacks. they look fine in the pic you took. as the pants relax more they will slide down closer to your ankle and gravity will naturally move them around a little bit. the only person who is ever going to stress over them is you. nobody on the street is going to look down at your ankles and think "those stacks are uneven..." they look fine.

    Does anyone have the black power stretch jeans? How do they hold up over the long term? Looking for something to replace my black 511's.

    ive had some for a couple years. when i first got them i wore them almost everyday for months. but they only get worn a few times a month now. theyre not as durable as other jeans of that weight but theyre not falling apart or anything. the crotch area is worn pretty bad for the activities and amount of time i wore them. i like them but if i had to do it over again i would have gotta the black selvedge weird guys and sized down 1 to get the skinny guy fit.

    I wore them at least 5 times at home for a few hours each time before I wore them out.

    Trying to keep your junk from getting pinched in your pants while walking is not fun and my Nudie Slim Jims and 4 Stroke raw jeans never did this. If I wear them low enough to keep the crotch at the right place then my butt doesn't fit.

    I think they are just not meant for me.

    I notice that he is 4 months in, but I don't know how many washes or what size he is wearing. The style is SkinnyGuy Deep Indigo Selvedge.

    ^^LOL, N&F are the last jeans I'd buy to actually do anything in.

    OK, sorry... done with N&F, done here, carry on...

    Just received a pair of the indigo weird guys and a black n&f belt in the mail. You guys are not kidding about the crotch lacking room. Hopefully it'll stretch a bit. Went -2 on the jeans which seems right. Went +2 on the belt, which was clearly a mistake. Looks like I'll have to use the smallest hole. The belt is insanely thick by the way.

    I don't think the problem with not enough room for the junk is due to rise, but rather how the front of the jeans proportions are designed... there is no slack for getting your hands into the pockets and the position of the crotch vs. the butt is all wrong. When the butt fits the crotch is up way too high. I measured the rise on my Slim Guys to be 10", which isn't that short. It is the proportions of the jeans and not having slack in the pockets/front of jeans that just don't work out (for me). They are just built for people with a way different body shape than mine. And it doesn't hurt if your junk is small I guess... [​IMG]

    I agree. I think the WG fit is definitely not for everyone. And it definitely doesn't seem to have to do with the front rise. I actually think it might have more to do with the back rise than anything else. I've had WG's with varying front rise and even when they measured the same as the rise on my apc's which fit perfectly, they just were never comfortable. just throwing in my 2 cents.

    So glad to know that I wasn't the only one having issues using the front pockets..

    And if you can do things in raw denim, you can do the same with much more comfort in other kinds (not just 2%elastine, even the pre-washed and softened ones)

    The waist is fine, if not a little big. I tried a pair of slim guys, but they were way too big. Will the skinny guys be even worse than the weirds?
