    Thanks! My only issue with soaking is that I want the length to decrease but I'm afraid of the waist getting too tight.

    I have had my Unbranded Skinnys for a year and a half now although I haven't really gotten around to wearing them since the purchase of my 3sixteens back last october. They fit similar to the n&f skinny guys and although they stretch when they are unwashed the shrink considerably when put in the wash. I was kinda stupid in that I washed them warm and had the waist shrink almost two sizes! They will stretch back out but it is harder the second time around, also I was forced to wash these a little prematurely as I accidentally left them in a none very well ventilated location and the started to grow mold. Should have soaked the in vingerar but alas, was did not. At any rate these fade to a nice greenish hue and are supper soft once taken out of the wash.

    I bought mine back when I worked for Anthropology with my discount and they came out to $48 dollars which isn't bad for a pair of 14.5oz raw selvege, I am now looking for the tappered in a size 28 which is what these were originally at so if you have a new set you would like to get rid of PM me :).

    here are some fit pics. my waist is a 28.5, I am 5.3" and roughly 120 lb.

    these are size 28 in the skinny. sorry for the poor quality pictures will get my girlfriend to snap some proper shots this weekend.

    Tapered at 2 months 11 days. These are not mine. They are my friend's little brother's. He's 16 and skinny as hell obviously.

    Won't stretch a whole bunch, but yeah it stretch a tiny bit. Don't rely too much on stretching tho.


    Soaking will not decrease the length (inseam). I warm soaked it twice with no change. It tightens the jeans and makes it stiffer, but this also dies out after wear. So if you want to make the inseam shorter, best thing to do is it get chainstitched hemmed at Self Edge or something. If you can't get it chainstitched, then a regular hem will do, except you won't have roping.

    Or deal with lots of stacks.

    The waist MOST LIKELY won't shrink too much from a soak. If you wash it though, according to "Rightyow77" it will shrink almost 2 sizes in waist.

    Quick fit advice question:

    I've been wearing a pair of APC PS for a year now but I don't like the way the taper looks with boots. I am essentially looking for a similar fit through the top/thighs but a straight leg all the way down. I'm thinking the UB101 skinny straight would fit the bill. Can anyone give some advice on this... how does the rise compare to the PS?


    That said, I take a 27 in APC PS... should I got for a 28 or 29 in the Unbranded?

    I just wore out my APC NS - what style is similar to the NS? The UB201 tapered fit I guess?

    Also how is sizing? TTS, or 1 down? I'm a 32 (30 in APC).

    The skinny does have that general fit yes. The rise probably won't be as forgiving as APC though. I would go for the size 28.
    They are the same materials for the most part. Made in a different country.
    Not really. They fade at about the same rate roughly.
    The tapered fit is somewhat similar to apc NS. But not really.

    If you wear a 30 in NS then you would want a 31 in the tapered fit. Just keep in mind the unbranded are a lot slimmer below the knee. That's just the nature of the cut.

    Here's measurements.

    NS: http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=6

    UNBRD Tapered: Size 31 (32" waist, 10.25" rise, 11.5" thigh, 8.2" knee, 34.5" inseam, 7.4" leg opening)
