I already have one. Its a stiffy14 by cheese denim. Wanted a nudie, but due to the vanity sizing I had to find a w26 and it sure is hard to find a w26, so went for cheese w28(smallest size they offer). Now it measures 31' lol

Stinky, I am very much interested but i am worry about the fit. I am size 27 for apc new cure and size 28 for nudie thin finn dry organic ecru. will this momotaro x n&F fit me?

I'm not too familiar with N&F, but I think its a general rule for every raw denim to account for stretching, therefore sizing down at least 1(from the real waist measurement, not the tagged). I think it'll be better to ask the seller, KahVII

Its ok wink.gif

Easy mistake to make, because a large portion of the more mainstream denim makers use denim that can stretch. Examples (from most "stretchy" to least "stretchy") :

APC (sz down 3-4)
Dior (sz down 2-3)
Nudies (sz down 2-3)
N&F (sz down 1-2)

APC is one of the more extreme ones... sounds super over the top when you're asked to go THREE WHOLE INCHES smaller than your regular waist. It really sounds a bit dumb... but because they stretch like elastane... >_>

The more traditional denim makers like Momotaro, SugarCane, IronHearts, Samurais, Skulls and Imperials have jeans that are really rigid and these.. don't do that stretchy thing that much =D

just to get things straight. From what I've read, APCs normally stretch up to 3 inches. If so, are we supposed to size down 5 from tag since it's vanity sized and the real waist measurement is actually 2inches more than tagged. Similarly, I believe the waist of most Nudies stretch up to 2 inches and it's also vanity tagged, we're supposed to size down 2 from the real waist measurement then? So its actually 4-5 sizes down from tag with APCs and Nudies? rclxub.gif
