1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I signed up to this forum just to address this problem. I bought a pair of RRDS and also found them to be quite tight and they almost looked tapered, due to my larger thighs. The solution to this: I sprayed the leg openings with water, stuffed them with small towels until they were tight, and beat them by hand to stretch them out. Then i sprayed the knee with water and used a blowdryer to try and shrink the knee as much as possible. Basically I was just too impatient to wait for them to break in, but regardless, if you keep them they will break in nicely. RRDS is without a doubt Nudie's best jean.

    I would say post some pics with them on. way too tight for you, may be fitted for me. They will stretch out quite a bit, but nonetheless, if you are having that big of a problem you shouldn't have to suffer for the first few weeks.

    as per the first entry, if you're wearing dunks and af1's then you should toss the 29's and get a size up for that slim thug look; but they'll only be slightly larger. maybe you don't like dry denim....its ok, we're not hurt.

    Agreed. btw, here's the sizing for my pair: 8" at knees and 9" at hem.. ugh.. too freaking tight.

    darknworn: you mind providing the same measurement for yours? The 34" might be too long but I like the folded bottom look on these so shouldn't be a problem.

    Also if you don't mind, what kind of price range are we thinking here?

    definitely. if you want to wear the "big" shoes, then you have to up size. most people tend to go for the skinny aesthetic with the nudies, so that's why you got the size down advice. if you keep them, they will break in. they will stretch. they will be more comfortable. granted probably not stretch enough to where you'd be happy with how they'd look with dunks, etc. (at least with the pair you have). but i agree with nomo, sounds like you are going for a baggier fit (how baggie, i have no idea). but it sounds like you'd be better off sizing up. of course if you think the bootcut is too subtle, then perhaps RRDS aren't for you. flare glenns, as suggested above, probably would've been your best bet. though i'm sure people here and other places could easily suggest a quality denim with more of a flare than the RRDSes.

    I don't know how Dunks could be a problem. I just got a pair of 28x34 RRDG a few days ago, and they fit over my size 11 skates. Those things are moon boots.
