That's only if you wake up late and arrive there at 12 when everybody's taken all the good stuff.

They had N&F below 90$. Better go to that rack first or else the sizes will run out FAST. Last year when I went I picked up my Frankenstein's for $80. I was at Dutil in the afternoon and saw them for around $120 and I held off till Holt.. Also, Boy's Co has insane N&F discounts as well.

Ummm question to anyone, does J2 have any good denim? I have a $100 gift card there and don't know what to buy...

If you have a hard time deciding, ill take the giftcard from you for $90 cash up front. PM me and lemme know if you're interested.
Also, does anyone know if theyve had crazy nudie sales as well?

Check out the men's store at Oakridge. IMO that store has better selection and styles.

I used to work at J2, terrible times.

well I just bought a pair of N&F. Weirdguy in Left Hand Twill, size 29
I'm a 29 in other jeans, and despite "areyounoob" telling me to size down, I got my actual size. This is because I tried the 28, it fit a bit too snug.
couple questions:
what should I do first? hot/cold soak or just wear for 6 months then soak? I've read on many sites (Revscene, authenticforum, styleforum, denimblog) and some say wear first, while others say soak first.
another question: which pair of vans goes best with my jeans?
Said jeans:
Spoiler!

Vans #1:
Spoiler!

Vans #2:
Spoiler!

It's a lot better to buy the jeans a little bit tighter. It'll be tight the first couple of wears but it will eventually stretch. My N&F Skinny's we're really tight the first time I got them at the waist (couldn't get 1 button done) but now they have stretched out and fit perfect. They've stretched about 1" since I've gotten them. Haven't soaked them or washed them yet.

Depends on what you want, if you want it to fade a little quicker dont soak it just yet, wear it out and then wash/soak it after a few months of wear.

Keep in mind though, the more often wash, the "healthier" your jeans will be. ie: the fibres will be a lot stronger since bacteria won't live on the jeans for a long time.

A hot soak will result in shrinking the jeans.

I personally like Vans #2. But if you can get a pair of DBs

So if the waist is a bit loose after just buying the jeans, does it mean they'll only get looser? Because they're a good fit, not too loose. not too tight either

They should be really tight for the first few days. It'll stretch to perfection eventually.

Anybody have a pair of 3Sixteens? Seems to be similarly priced to NFs. Blackmarkers seems to have them for a really good price, but doesn't say exactly which ones they are.

yea..if 27s fit i'd suggest you downsize 2 sizes instead of one..

i bought 31s and they were tight..after a week i think they're up to at least a 32.5 if not 33...i have to wear a belt now or my jeans will be too loose

In general, Slimguy size down 2, Weirdguy size down 1, Skinny tts.

just stick with NFs man. Take pride in brands made in your own country. NFs have the best fits, best styles and has originality.
