I am thinking about buying some new nudies and want to try comething other than slim jims. I dont really have anything to compare the other cuts to so I wanted to see which are comparable to APC NS, Rescue, and NC.

I compared the Rescue measurements and those of my Slim Jims and they are pretty much identical (although I have heard rescues compared to Reuglar Alf, which doesnt seem right to me considering how baggy/loose that cut is). But what about NS and NC?

I was thinking:

NS= Grim Tim
NC= Thin Finn
Rescue=Slim Jim/ Even Steven

I have the APC Rescue and Nudie Average Joe. I'd say they are quite comparable in fit.

Don't know what sizes you're measuring but I highly, highly doubt that Rescues in a comparable size are similar to Slim Jims. That simply doesn't make a lot of sense.

If anything I'd say it's more like AJs.

Ha...and Ace beat me to it.

I sized down on NS and average Joe and the cut is pretty similar besides the slight taper on the NS

34x34 SJ and 32 Rescue, the SJ's are a bit tighter in the knee and leg opening by about 1.25" and .75".

I'm actually thinking about which Nudie cut is right for me. The NS Rescue fits me well but below the knee it's a bit looser than I want. Should I go for the Average Joe or Big Bengt?

A 32 Rescue is near identical with a 34 Straight Sven, minus about a half an inch on the rise for the SS.

I like many others have numerous pairs of "quality" raw denim and am looking for some non-raw, and nudie, jean shop, and dior are the only alternatives that make non-raw cuts and washes that interest me...

Do you have any suggestions

Wow, thanks for solving the Nudie code! That must be why so many of us wear Nudies on here. I mean, it can't be the fit, right? It has to be the shitty denim that they use on every single model they put out! Seriously, thanks so much. I can sleep well tonight knowing that tomorrow I'll be putting up my Nudies on B&S and pawn them off to some poor unsuspecting sucker!
