    Hey guys, just signed up to the forum and tried wearing in a few pair of denim. Started off with a Nudie SJ but turned out to be too baggy. I'm about 5'5 weigh about 140 and I'm just looking for the perfect fit thats not baggy. I was honestly leaning towards a pair of APC New Cure because I currently have a pair of Nudie Thin Finn and I'm not too happy with the fit. Any help works. Thanks guys.

    Fit pics would help.

    If the slim jim is too baggy on crotch/belt area it's more a sizing matter than a bad fit/brand choice.
    If the knee area is too large, then yes it's a matter of fit.

    You could think about a grim tim and be careful with sizing.
    The GTDDO is not top quality cotton; I don't know about the selvedge ones.

    APC is good quality cotton, more durable than most Nudies.
    However the way back pockets are spaced is... special, and depending on your build and sizing, your butt might look weird in that.

    As allways, it's risky ordering jeans online without trying them first.
    Perfect fit is easier to attained either by trying the thing in store, or having some personal experience with choosen brand already.

    If your legs are skinny, then the "leg opening" on the SJ is most likely too large for you.

    Then the GT is a good alternative and the APC new cure too.
    I'm somewhat skinny too and own both; they fit well.

    By the way, what's the problem with the thin finn?

    Yea I wish the thin finns were a bit skinnier on the legs. The Tube Kellys seem like a great fit, but the selection in that fit isnt great, and they don't have my size in the wash I want.
