If I wear size 32 weird guy, do you think I can fit in size 32 skinny guy?

Right now, after 6-8 months, my weird guy's feel pretty loose throughout the jean...

But back on topic, i've been wearing my Left hand twill N&F for i think 18/19 days in a row, they feel really fit (except for waist, kinda looser now)
Whiskering behind knees are visible only if you try to look for em, and I'm trying for a "wallet fade"

the skinny guys are quite skinny. if you got more than just skin and bones then i dont think you will feel comfortable in the thigh area wearing skinny guy's.


have you done a warm wash/dryer to see if they shrink down a bit?

Maybe you should have sized down more? I'm not sure how much NF stretches.

Pics after 8 months of wear?

Yes. They shrunk down a little. But after wearing them after wash they start to stretch again. It's not that loose but I'm having a hard time getting fades behind the knee and also on my stacks....

Generally, its TTS for Skinny, Size down 1 for WG, Size down 2 for Slim.

So technically you should get a 33 for Skinny, but in the end its going to be personal pref. Some people like it tighter than others. Head down to Holts or something and try them on.

picked up one of nudies newer fits, tape ted's. got to wear em out tonight. loving every second. they're basically between thin finns and slim jims. wider near the top but slims down quite a bit past the knee. nice clean simple look too. good colour denim, no visible stitching anywhere except for the ass pockets

loving them so far! can't wait to get some honeycombs and fades going. fourth pair of nudies, no doubt going to be coming up on my 5th pair shortly!



^ ignore the alife sneaks haha



note that none of them have been washed for the first time yet

Update on my current project. These are indoor shots so fades are subtler, in the sunlight its just so much better.. I also included a piece of raw denim to show the difference from raw to now. Difference is subtle but it is there.

Yup, Somet 008. Why did you sell yours? I've never seen anyone with the same pair as me ever.

Its got almost a year total wear but I've owned them longer than that. Never washed yet, I'm trying to hold out as long as I can.

Holy shit amazing Somets. Fuck... if they sold them here I would totally cop. Your whiskers are amazing.

How tight would you say they are on you? Your combs look really straight and horizontal but it might be due to cycling

^ Thanks haha. Blueingreen ships to Canada if you really want them. Its worth the price for sure.

They are tight in all the right places. They are a skinny jean and its a fitted kind of tight not the tight like girl's leggings tight. Yeah, combs become more compact and more horizontal as you increase tightness. It helps that they don't stretch much and lose their shape like other kinds of jeans.

I don't cycle while wearing these though lol. To get fades just have one pair and keep on wearing them. I only have these somets, a grey NF, and a pair of black diors and that's it. Mostly wear the somets.

They were too big so I don't feel too bad. What I totally regret was how dirt cheap they went for...certainly not a price I can get another pair for now. I did see someone wearing a pair once, it was probably you!

I agree, the fit's great but the rise isn't for everyone. Even the rise on the 003 is pretty low so that's something to keep in mind for anyone considering Somets.

not really feeling the stitching on those back pockets, but everything else is mad swag... great creases, honeycombs, stacks, fades.. great pair in general

I can definetly relate to you on this one. Can't tell you how many times I've gone though jeans that just don't fit me. Sad part is, most of them were bought for killer deals too. But honestly, in the end, if a pair of raw jeans aren't the right fit, they're not a good deal. Raw denim requires that it be fitting and you're only as strong as your weakest link. A great deal on a pair of jeans just won't take away from a bad fit. fit > price

Haha I was unsure about the rise too but ended up loving it. People sag their jeans all the time at least this way its meant to be like that and I can still move properly

Those actually aren't stitching! The back pockets are reinforced with another layer of denim until about halfway and so it leaves that kind of fade. You'll notice that the right side is a bit more obvious because my wallet is there and it makes more contact with different surfaces.

Anyone know how nudies slacker jack fit compares with the slim jims? I'm usually a 28/32 in slim jim's but unsure if I should size up.
I read mixed reviews on mynudies.com that they had to size up for the slackers compared to the rest of their nudies but some said they all fit the same.

If anyone knows I would much appreciate it because I plan on ordering a pair online but I can't find them locally to try the fit
