nothing wrong with loose fitting except that you wont get any drastic fading.
most of the lines come from wearing them a bit on the slim side.

n&f wears out quickly so if you just want to wear them once in a while they'll do.
for every day wear, you'll wear them out quick

I want a new pair of Samurais, imperials or flatheads.

Anywhere in Vancouver or Seattle?

I've got a pair of n&f and I've been wearing them everyday for the last 5 months. They've got some decent fades considering I wear them pretty lightly. Any tips to getting some more fades for the last month before I soak them?

Jump on a bike. Do squats/lunges in them.

Afraid so. =[

I should have picked up a pair when I was down there last time. But at that time I was only 5-6 months into my old Samurais.

Question:

Has anyone ever bought stuff off Barney's website? It says they have free ground shipping, but I was wondering what the duties usually are?

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Can't wait.

I didn't end up buying new Samurais. I fished up a pair of Capital E's I never really broke in and got them tapered and tailored to my liking. rocking those this summer.

Woah I never considered Strike Gold denim but now they're at the top of my list to replace my current pair when they fade more.

they're unsanforized denim, so make sure you size up and give them a soak before you start wearing them. one of the guys at self edge was wearing the exact pair and recommended it to me. his were probably close to a year in wear, and they looked great. i was sold.

^ You got the high rise slim leg? I had a chance to get that but was unsure of the rise. Let us know how it works out for you. Somet denim is very high quality.

They do fit slim.... I have muscular thighs and calves and a tiny waist, so I'd say it's pretty tight... However, I have to wear a belt now because its stretched quite a bit and my waist is now too small to accommodate them. I was thinking the reason mite be because the nudie thin Finns aren't tue selvedge that there wouldn't be dramatic fades on them, but apparently that is not the case. I've seen some pics of some pretty dope fades on thin Finns.
