For bootcuts, I would hem it. Stacking on wide leg openings doesn't really work. Either that or get it tapered to a straight or tapered leg.

Back pocket placement seems really far apart for a women's pair of jeans. Almost like a men's pair.

No apologies needed for the butt picture ;-)

the inseam might shrink after you wash it so you might want to hold off on hemming them. by the way the fit is really sexy as it is.

I think the overall fit is good, but the pocket placement is a bit weird, like the pockets are too big. But congrats on your 1st pair, wear them a lot since GS doesn't fade/wear very quickly.

blueingreensoho.com is a great place for dry denim.

Here's just a few of models out there for women:

Skull Lindas
http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28

PBJ slims & Flares
http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28

http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28

Samauri Geishas
http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28

Somet 006
http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28


selfedge.com also carries a lot of denim for women. There's Sling & stones, iron heart tomboy (which you have to inquire about), & also many unisex models.

good society jeans (available on revolveclothing.com) & APC are good cheaper alternatives to higher priced japanese denim if you don't want to spend so much.

Small Questions Thread (Please check before posting new thread)

So I thought we had one...but a search turned up nothing. Closest thing was the introductory guide.

Think we should have one.

Post all your small questions here and get answers rather than starting new topics for everything.

NUDIE Straight Sven

Hi,

I'm looking for a Nudie Straight Sven at ebay and I'm a little bit unsure which size is perfect for me. I'm used to wear 33" in Levis, sometimes 32", TR fits me well in 31-32" and 7fam in 32" .
Sounds confusing? Sure it is...
I don't want the Nudie looking relaxed or baggy, normally I prefer my jeans a little tighter. What do you guyz think which size fits me well in a straight sven? Do Nudies generally run smaller or bigger?

This one here seems to be a good offer:

NUDIE Jeans Straight Sven basic mid used W32 L34 +NEU+ bei eBay.de: Jeans (endet 15.09.08 08:08:17 MESZ)

What do you think about the wash? Cool or dull ???
And another little question: how slim is "slim jim" in cold wash?

Thanx a lot, as you can see I'm totally poor about Nudies...

Hi, I'm using it, so please give me answers!
I need to stretch my skull linda bootcut (one wash) so that I can wear them in public. They button, but give me an unsightly waist bulge--the denim is incredibly rigid and has not given with wear inside the house.
Will wearing them in the shower (does the water temp matter?) help stretch them out and will it be bad for them? Will it even help?

Jess:

I just soaked mine for a little bit then put them on wet. Initially I couldn't even button a single button. Now it fits perfectly! Shower could work too-doesn't really matter the temp imo. However, the running water may wash off more indigo than just soaking them in a bath.

Jessani, when I need to stretch my jeans, I turn them inside out and heavily mist the areas that need stretching with a spray bottle. I then turn them outside out, put them back on, and do squats until the area stretches. If the waist is the issue, I keep trying to pull them down a little lower each time I squat. After 15 minutes you should be able to stretch them out.

I've heard differing opinions on water temp affecting rigidity of the denim afterwards...with cold leading to stiffer denim. I haven't really noticed it however. *shrugs*

With Skulls, getting them wet shouldn't do anything horrible. Dye job should hold up.

I think the general consensus for Nudies is to size down 1 from your true waist. Someone can correct me on that, though.

For a dry pair, I would recommend sizing down 1-2, but for a prewash (which is what these are), I'd probably just stick with my regular size.

Thanx guyz, I'll take it in 32", I guess that's right. If it won't fit I'll exchange, it's from a shop

Done and done.

Good idea, I'm surprised something similar hadn't already been done.
