    ...Why would you size down so much? Those just look way too tight and uncomfortable to me.

    You sized down pretty much, and I think, that the bum looks really tight, but the rest is ok. If it's comfortable for you no prob, but it looks like the crotch and seat is under a lot of tension

    I was looking for my slim jim replacement and something heavy. Then i found this big bengt which is if i wear it true to size, the fit is loose in waist, so the store attendant suggested to downsize until i meet the tight in waist part. in this 27 i feel the same fit like my previous slim jim, only smaller in leg opening (something that part i love so much and i never have with my slim jim)

    Please do tell me, will dry heavy stretch later on?? :s

    ^Eh, I would have gone with at least 28-29! You could have probably gone with a Grim Tim then.
    I'm sure they'll stretch, but it'll probably be quite minimal - I would actually be more concerned with the shrinkage after soaks/washes lol =/.

    Do you have any other fit pics?

    the only heavy grim tim i like is the red selvage 1 which is out of price range to me :p

    oh ya, i've just read this from selfedge.com about BBDH,
    "Disclaimer: These jeans are made of raw sanforized denim, when washed, the denim will shrink approximately .5" in length (inseam) and .5" in waist. Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1.75" after approximately 40 wears."
    So i think the will not shrink that much after soaks/washes compare to how big they will stretch after 40 wears. CMIIW.

    anyway this is some views for the fit:

    seconded...too tight. if you're after a skintight fit look into another cut. size these up 1 or better 2 for the fit, the designer intended

    BB's are supposed to be loose.... That is the point of the cut. To either be worn TTS, or sized down one. If you don't like it then, just go for a different model, nudie has like 999 different fits, and you can achieve that fit through a pair of GrimTim's or even Slim Jim's.

    So a true to size BB would be similar to a GT worn a size or 2 too big?

    No! Big Bengt has a different rise and is noticeably more tapered...

    I started breaking in my BB dry red selvage. Tough as it's a 13,5 oz denim. I'm also wearing my new Dr. Martens this week, so it's been quite hard. (great combination though). I'm glad the BB doesn't bleed as much as my dry dirt org Grim Tim. Now I may sit on the couch. I usually wear a 32/34, this BB is a 31/34 and still comfortably loose (the way it's intended). So, love the BB!

    Picked up some of these babies today. My favorite nudie style so far!

    Normal sizing is a 36 in Slim Jim, a 34 in Thin Finn.... Got these in a 33 and they are perfect, not too loose, not too tight

    hey guys debating on whether i should get the heavy big bengts which i think is the regular run of the mill models or the red selvage big bengts. the reason why i am debating on getting the red selvages is because my even stevens crotch blew a few times and i think selvage jeans are stronger material? and that would mean less crotch rips?

    Hello everyone,

    Just ordered a pair of Big Bengt in a 36 with an original waist of 38. I figured that since they do stretch out after wearing them, they'll eventually fit nicely. I've read the past posts in this thread and I assured that these nudies will stretch out and fit fine. Kind of excited this being my first pair of Nudies.

    Big Bengt Dry Red Selvage is my second pair of Nudie Jeans. At first I thought Big Bengt was a really bad cut, but last week a was at the Nudie Store here in Gothenburg and I tried out a pair. And man, know I really dig the cut! It's a very comfy jean I must say.

    Cant wait to break them in!

    Those won't have to stretch at all. The waist sizing on Big bengt is off. I bought mine 1 size down and could have gone one more if I wanted a tighter fit. You'll be fine with the 36.

    Thanks for the insight and you are completely right. 36 fits me and I they'll stretch out through time.

    I'm definitely happy with my purchase.
