    hi dirty denim, did you remember actual size of the waist in your 33 and 34 ub21 skinny when it first came (before it streched) ? and which one is your true size, 33 or 34?

    Hi, unfortunately I did not measure. The 34 fits a bit bigger than I want but still fits good. The 33 I just got back from denim therapy and have worn them around the house for a few hours so far. They are soooo tight I can't button the top button yet. I'm a bit scared they might be to tight.

    Any word on when the Unbranded chinos in 201/ tapered fit become available somewhere? As far as I know, so far only skinny and slim straight are out.

    Five days down on my Unbranded 221 21oz Tapered... These are fading FAST!
    I couldnt get the top button closed for shit first time I put them on, put its stretching, and I hope its going to stretch a lot more, bought a size too small!
    What do you guys think about the fit?

    but you got a nice fit with your 33, does the waist streched already?


    thanks nobutada, i am a bit confused about the sizing, because rue state and blue owl have very different measurement

    i think thats a bit tight, but nice fit you got there. can you tell me your height and weight? because i wanna buy that size, but still strugling between skinny or tapered

    Everyone's talking about how they stretch (not much, apparently), but how about shrinkage? I'd like to try their 21oz tapered -- a cheap experiment in heavy denim to see if it's worth trying Ironheart or similar. Any info would be gratefully received. Cheers.

    isnt anybody questioning why these 21oz are fading so fast? i totally get that heavier denim tends to fade faster...but seeing the jeans being worn for 1 month and lookin like theyve been work in for about 6...it raises questions as to why the denim isnt holding the indigo well...

    Iam 179cm tall, and way about 75-77 kilos. But Ive got pretty big thighs, and a wide waist, so its hard to say what fits you just looking at my height and weight!

    i dont see a problem, its not the denim its probably the dyes. denim fades because indigo doesnt hold well, if they were able to find/make an indigo that is even worse at staying on the fibres then itll be fast. probably the same as the diesel turbo denim

    but agian what is the difference when in regards to quality, whether it be the cotton(unknown origins ) can hold the dye, or the cheap indigo itself...just sayin it brings up a lot of questions in terms of the denim's quality....these remind me of the levi's Imprints that failed a while back because they go straight to white after about 6 months

    @mistahdabolina

    I guess you`ve got a point, but is it really necessary speculate very much about the quality of these 98 bucks selvage jeans?
    We know its not the top of the line. Personally I am a student, and i cant afford jeans that cost $200+, but i want to experience the fading process.

    Actually, in school I have to wear a uniform, and thats like most of my days, so I am happy that the jeans fade really fast! And if I wanted cheap selvage jeans that wouldnt fade this fast, I could have bought the 15oz..
