It's a good idea that you chose the rolling belt buckle. I got one that doesn't roll and I'm pretty sure that's the reason I have marks on it.

i got 511's from levi's. They are skinny fit, but got a bit of a stretch to it. Soft and comfy, good for layering with coats/jackets.

Oops. Sorry for the delay. I don't follow this thread regularly.

Here are a couple pics:




Albert had "pre-inforced" the crotch around 2 months into the life of the jeans with a large patch sewn into the inner crotch (those are the threads on the outside of the crotch area). So basically now all he has to do for any crotch blowout is run a few stitches over the hole, binding the patch that's already there to the blowout.

Dutil is pretty good but some of there stuff is pretty pricey depending on the brand. For your first pair I'd probably recommend naked and famous because they're pretty cheap and their quality is pretty good for the price.

Was at Hills of Kerrisdale today and decided to check out what N&F they had. I was impressed by the variety and range of sizes they had available, it was better than what Dutil had in stock last time I was there for sure. Prices are decent too, with most jeans being $15-$20 more than it would be online from Tate and Yoko.

blueowl for online. The guy is located in Seattle so if you plan to go there, contact him to check out his store. They sell N&F's as well as other jeans.

Japan Blue/Momotoro would be a good brand/price point to look into if you want something that will be more durable and of higher quality than N&F

N&F is trash. They stretch out to the point that they're unwearable. I went through 3 pairs before I realized what garbage they were and ultimately donated them to the Salvation Army.

Honestly, my W+H denim are the best raw denim I've ever had (and I've had a lot). Fit is similar to Dior and they don't stretch much or lose their shape.

Lol not sure if they are trash at their price point especially when they go on sale all the time.

The waist will stretch though especially if you don't belt and your waist keeps getting bigger.

Maybe they're trash because you like to wear your shit skin tight

I'm not a big fan of N&F either... but not for the quality (which is amazing for the price), but I always found the fits to be really weird. (maybe i just have weird proportions)

Which dior (and W+H) fit are you talking about? My straight leg W+H fit nothing like any of my DH (both 19 and 17.5's). I find DH fits a lot more slim and the overall silhouette is much nicer!

N&F has a long lineup, most being items that I would never consider. However, they have a few pieces that are worth looking into, considering its value.

I personally like momotaro. If you are a taller person with slimmer legs, their tapered fit is spot on IMO.
