    What distinguishes, or how can you tell the new run of Unbranded denim vs the older, original run?

    Thanks.

    There is no difference between the original run and what is out now. Only the color of the size tags has changed in the past 2 years.

    I got the photo from Unbranded/N&F head office... Your jeans look killer. They are never washed right?

    I tried the Unbranded Skinny but the pockets were wayyy too small and tight, are the pockets equally as small and tight on the Taper cut?

    Also, I weigh 170lbs and I'm 5'10. I have pretty big thighs but a small waist. In most regular non-raw jeans I wear a size 32 or 33. What size should I buy in the Unbranded Tapered fit?

    I have the skinny's and I think that the only issue for me are the pockets being shallow and small, but I generally don't keep things in my pockets so not a biggie.

    I think you need to size up one on Unbranded, but I went TTS and it fits me well, even better after stretching out

    I wear a 31 in Levis 511, and gave the Unbranded Skinnys a try a few months ago. It's been about 3 months and everything is starting to settle now. I got it in a size 31, and it fits perfectly after some break in. The waist and thighs stretched a bit for me, as did the pockets. If you guys are experiencing small pockets, just break them in.

    The pockets don't stretch out. :embar: They're whatever size the cotton bags inside the jeans are, and they are a bit small on Unbranded jeans.

    Yeah this was my biggest problem with Unbranded. Is there any way for a tailor to make the pockets larger?

    Almost anything can be done by a good tailor. Personally I don't find the pockets to be small, but I'm sure you can find a tailor who will cut and sew a pocket extension for you for little money...

    How does the 301 and 201 models compare with Levis 501 shrink to fits? I wear 32s on the 501s which were a tad too tight when brand new but i slept on them for a night and the waist loosened up by the morning. I'm looking for a slightly slimmer fit than the 501s so from the measurements, I think I should go for 201s, am i not mistaken? Also, should I get size 32s also? I'm not looking to wait for a month for everything to loosen up so I'd like to know if unbrandeds usually run TTS.

    thanks!

    Good to know! Might have to check out my local Marshalls



    I'd go with the 201s. The 301s might be a bit too baggier, but the 201s will offer you a slimmer look. From my experience and most of the experience of others here, Unbranded runs a bit small. I went TTS and let it stretch out, but you might want to size one up.
