    Quick question about sizing on Nudies. I've read general consensus is to size down 1 on Reg Ralfs, but this is my first pair of raw denim. I used to buy Express Jeans at 32/32 and my waist measures 33. Would it be safe to say I can order the nudies in 32/32? I want the waist to be snug, not too loose(obviously tightness at first is fine). Also, I don't want to cuff them or anything but I'm afraid of the length shrinking too much so should I go with 32/34? Thanks.

    I'd probably get a waist size of 31. My waist measures a 32.5 and I love the fit on my size 30 Regular Ralfs. Inseem length is a personal choice based on how you want your jeans to look/stack, but shrinking shouldn't be a huge worry.

    What is "slub" and what does "slubby" mean in relation to describing denim?


    physical texture of the denim. PBJs are probably the slubbiest and if you handle a pair in real life, it almost feels like a burlap sack. the material is very 3-dimensional

    Nope. Self Edge stocked Samurai for a short time, but no longer do. PBJ has always been Blue in Green exclusive.

    Are you in NY, as your handle would indicate? Check out any sales going on. Paul Smith and Alden come to mind, for brands that you might want to check out. Also, Zappos and Endless have some nice Tricker's for Ted Baker on sale right now too.

    Works fine for me. I'm referring to last year's APC patent leather derbies. I like this Alden Shell Cordovan, this might work with jeans and suits. I like the APC more rounded toe, its a nice change, I have enough pointy toed shoes.

    I am curious as to what the general consensus is on stacking? How much is too much? I am seriously considering picking up some 13MwZ's and want to take advantage of the xl inseams. I was just looking to get a few opinions.

    thanks kindly,
    robbie

    I think it looks good with slim fitting jeans. But then again I think baggy jeans, espcially on more trim guys, usually don't look that great. IMO long inseams look great and I am eager for my next pair to be extra long.
