hi fellow forumers...
just got my Nudie Slim Jim Dry Broken Twill Jeans today...it's in W34 short
i got some questions and hope you guys can give some advice

1. is my Nudie sanforized or not? I tried to look up on nudie website..it doesn't really tell...
2. should I soak the jeans 1st?
3. around the thigh it's a bit tight but still okay..will it strech over time? or will it shrink? most probably Average Joe would fit me better...

this is my 1st raw jeans and would really appriciate any info given.. thanks smile.gif

i didnt soak my nudies,and yeah they still stretch.
dont worry jaguar those thigh part gonna stretch.and you can do some lunges in them to stretch it more.if the elastane is very low,once it stretch it will stay like that.i had the recycle dry pair that has the 3% elastane,it stretch quite minimal cause its kinda like stretching back in.

that soaking is also suggested for nudie to get rid of excess indigo.so your pair will fade faster,but if your nudie is organic cotton,that soaking wont help much in fading cause the organic cotton.
edit:
this the first pic i had with my organic dry ecru,which was a bit tight at the thigh and waist too.ngam2.sorry pics sucks.

fantastic denim. spikes will be my next purchase most likely. all made under one roof and steven is a great guy. really one of the denim in the market im willing to pay full retail for.

um comments.. fit is great, beautiful cone mill fabric, and red line selvedge, nice details in contrast stitching , rust-ish rivets, and a thick natural leather patch.

wat attracts me to railcar denim
- chainstich hem

if I were looking for a slimmer fit, which should I go for a N&F? Slim guy or Weird guy?
skinny guy i think will not be suitable for me..

Weird Guy will look slimmer because of tapered leg...it also depends on how u sizing it...even Skinny guy will look baggy if u size up 2/3...if u have big thigh go for Weird Guy...

thanks for the advice...

he is in our mydenim forum, you can ask more from him there or from his website,
since he is a pretty well known denim artist, there's no doubt about the quality  cool2.gif
