Diesels or Sevens. Nudies has some more relaxed cuts as well, but they're still a bit slimmer.

Also you can never go wrong with Levi's..

Bootcut is falling out.. If anything try a straight leg.
Stay away from nudies if you have muscular legs and arms. The fabric is weak and fragile and you will definetly get a crotch blowout within a few months. I'd recommend sevens or william rast for jeans some loose fitted jeans. I understand that with jeans, you'd want to have it fitted to your body to some extent or it'd just feel like wearing a pair of sweatpants. If you do decide to go with nudies though, I'd recommend going more for the predistressed, prewashed denim. Your flexed muscles when you walk, will put alot of pressure on nudie raw denim, and with the weak quality of nudie denim, you don't want to risk the chance.

^He's looking for bootcut and doesn't like skinnies..
I doubt he'd get a super fitted size or fit that's substantial enough for a crotch blowout..

I washed my nudie jeans too early (like it was a year after I got them, but I probably got like 2-3 months of wear into them.. maybe less). Then like 3-4 months later I washed them again (maybe another 1-2 months of wear onto them). The creases barely show any contrast at all. It's just a solid fade throughout the whole jeans

anyone know if it's possible to re dye the jeans? The color now is in between the dark raw denim color it was when it's new and a light indigo colour.. it's like not an appealing colour, like not dark enough or not light enough.

redyeing it possible?

I think that's more trouble than it's worth..
Most designer jean companies, especially Nudies, uses whatever special dyes for their own unique looks.

I'd keep wearing them until they're as worn out as the ones in the little booklet that comes with the jeans

I usually don't wash mine until there's some pretty definite fading.

check out Joe's rocker. The fit is pretty good on the thigh and the flare is not too bad. I think they have it at dutil.

Do you wear your jeans hard? Their quality is decent. Not great, but not bad. To be honest, any raw denim will rip easily if they are not washed for a while due to the cotton being dry.

Might as well get a new pair. Fades dont automatically appear right after you put them through the washer. If you want good fades , it is best to be able to see some sort of fading prewash, because they will be more contrasted after a wash. But hey, if you gotta wash you gotta wash, they are just a pair of jeans. Personal hygiene is more important imo.

I don't wear my jeans too hard, I just wear them everyday. Well, priced at $200, I'd say the nudies I own are alot lower in quality compared to my $90 n&fs that haven't broken down even after 7-8 months of wear.

On a side note, if you're gonna care about personal hygiene, raw denim won't be for you. Don't drop a couple bills on raw denim if you're gonna wash it right after because there'd be no point. Afterall, you're paying for the process.

I can agree with you that naked & famous's denim quality is better than nudies at the same price point, but if you are looking for prewashed denim, there are not many choices because the market right now is raw raw raw. You can check out Earnest Sewns, their washes and fit are pretty good

Nudies has a decent selection for pre-washed..
I have a pair of pre-washed Grimm Tims, and the're actually comfortable to wear.

Don't get me wrong, I love raw denim. But sometimes there are those days where you just don't feel like wearing super fitted jeans that feel like cardboard.

For prewashed denim with realistic/nice fades you can try diors.

The crotch blew out of my raw denim a while ago and I haven't had time to bring them to a tailor. Put them on today and they're so much more comfortable than any of my levi's. Already planning on the next pair I'll get

unbranded will fit similar to the naked famous, since they are sister brands...just aimed at different price points.

unbranded tapered -> weird guy
unbranded skinny -> skinny guy
unbranded slim -> slim guy

I have heard that the hardware that unbranded used were cheaper quality and broke much more often, that was a while back so I don't know if they have changed it since.

Unbranded's tapered is like a perrrfect fit for me. It's like a slightly slimmer Weird Guy.

I have 2 pairs of N&F and 2 pairs of Unbranded.. and honestly the Unbranded fits me better

i'll be posting my strike gold 1109's for sale in classifieds later.
i love them very much but they just dont fit me. didnt shrink as much as i had hoped.
they're tagged a 33 but probably fit around a 32.
i lost about 15lbs in the last 3 months and so i cant wear them anymore.
i wore them about 30 times and soaked them once, no washes.
they have almost no visible wear on them and are not hemmed.
they really have some of the most beautiful denim i've seen. very hairy/fiberous cotton, and they have a natural sort of blotchiness to them.

this is where they were purchased, and thats the price i paid.
http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.p...roducts_id=736

i'll post all the exact measurements as well as pictures later tonight or tomorrow, as well as a link to the post.
