    Hey people, I'm thinking of getting a pair of ES but don't have access to them where I live. I was hoping that anyone out there who owns a pair could help out by giving their height, weight, and measurements. Sure, I realize that numbers alone don't fully capture a person's body shape, but it's a good start. I'm not about to ask for stomach and ass measurements... :shock:

    Someone else already asked this question in the Slim Jim forum, another Nudie fan with limited access to different models and sizes. I think it's a really helpful thread topic, so hopefully some of the Even Steven people can take a sec and post their info. Thanks!

    I am a slim 6'3" 175lbs and my ESDOs are 31x32 (I usually wear 32x32). They feel great! The inseam is the perfect length to where I don't have to cuff, but I can if I want to.

    wow, i could never work as a height and weight guessing dude at a carnival! then again, it's hard to tell from your pic in the other thread. man, i was gonna order a 32x34... i'm about 6'1" 180 lbs. i don't wanna cuff them, but i want it to bunch up a little (like the ES pics on context clothing). so if you are that tall, maybe i should go with the 32 length, huh? steez, how do they fit with shoes, and what kind of shoes work for you?

    Yeah, I was worried about the inseam being too short when I first started wearing them, but the denim is loosening up and stretching quite nicely. I also wear the jeans on my hips and not my waist, so if you tend to wear your's higher you may want to opt for a longer inseam.

    Shoes are a pain. I am going to have to buy some new ones just to go with my Nudies, but so far these have been working well...

    The ESDO that I got are in a 32x34. I'm 6'2", 180. They stretch nicely after a couple weeks of wear. Though they're not a super tight fit like SJs - the thigh fit is closer to the RR fit, but with a narrow leg. If I was to buy them again I'd probably get a 31x34 - currently they are slightly looser then I normally wear, but I still think they look really really good.

    If it helps, I wear a 32x34 in pretty much every other major denim line.

    I would for sure buy the 34 inseam though. Mine were a bit long at first, but once they start crinkling in the crotch and behind the knees they do seem to come up a bit. Plus, they are tapered a bit, so if they are long, they'll bunch up nicely and give a really cool effect when washed.

    ok, i was *this* close to just ordering a 32x34. steez went with the 32 length, but i figured they would shrink a bit after washing, and i could always get them hemmed. but this waist thing is killing me! he's similar build to me and he got a 31 waist, and now you're saying you'd get a 31 too... i just tried on some 32 slim jims yesterday and i could barely breathe. i know they'd stretch, but no way that 32 was happening. i'm selling some bjorns, and i just got some svens (34x34), but will sell those too, coz they're really nothing special. i wanted to go slim, but the SJ just weren't gonna happen. i like the ES pics i've seen but i don't want 'em to be hanging and formless like my bjorns (even the SS looked like that). what should i do?

    i measured my bjorns and the waist is about 86 cm and it fits well (but the rest is too baggy). zoovillage measures the waist on the ES 33x34 at 88cm, and the 32x34 at 86cm. so i was really convinced the 32 was the way to go. now i'm lost again. help. good lord, help! :?

    Brick, I just measured the waist of my ES's and they are 86cm. So by the sounds of it the ESOD in 32x34 is going to be the right size for you. I'd order those.

    well here's me and the new ES, 32x34! all the questions and answered sure helped, coz these fit sweet right out of the bag (special thanks to oi polloi for nice n fast delivery :D). they're a bit high on the hips, coz i'm heading to work, but at least i can break em in 24/7. then it's low n lazy. aww yeah.

    I have a kind of odd waist. I usually wear a 30x32 in Levis jeans only because they are easy to find. I actually measure to a 29" waist. I'm 6'0" and I weigh roughly 130lbs with a 32.5" inseam. Should I buy a 28x32 or a 29x34? I really have no idea what with shrinking and stretching and all.

    This is going to be my first set of Nudies and I will probably be ordering them online somewhere.

    Hit the gym, big guy. How is it some of the people on here can wear a waist size in the 20s? I understand if you're five and a half feet, but otherwise, I don't get it. North American girls would break you, not to mention what would inevitably happen to you if, heaven forbid, you found yourself in the middle of a bar fight haha.

    Why the hate?
    I'm a 26 or 27 waist, and I've faired fine in the few fights I've found myself in. I'm also Canadian, and so is my girlfriend...and lets just say I've yet to be "broken" as you so put it.
    Some of us are just smaller guys.

    Haha, no hate, but common, unless you're under 5'6'', to be 130 lbs is rediculous. Even at 5'6'', it's nutty. However, it will benefit you when you're older and slim.
    Any friend of mine that is under 160 lbs is going to get my constant redicule and requests for them to try thier first push up (it's what friends are for).
    Unless you're fighting someone of equal scrawnyness, there's nothing you could do, no matter how much fight training you have. If you're a 27 inch waist it's no contest. Not saying that in a threatening way, bein some hoser trying to start a fight from thousands of miles away, just a little clowning around. I'm not promoting fighting either, so take it for what it is, a joke.

    To move on, for the guy who wanted a definition for Emo:
    Emo is short for EMOtional. It's the type of people usually seen wearing all black clothes that are sufficiently tight for a woman's yoga/pilates class. They sometimes sport strange haircuts (too often straight, scraggy, and awkwardly bleached or died with unnatural colours), several piecings, and makeup applied to thier eyes. Sport is kind of ironic wording as these emo people are not active, but instead, wallow in their own self pity and personal perversion. They are commonly around 4% body fat, and likely have less percentage of muscle.

    That definition should be submitted to urbandictionary lol.

    quite wrong
    emo was a spin off of the mid 90's hardcore scene as a result of bands like Fugazi, Lifetime and Jawbreaker placing more emphasis on the emotional content of their lyrics. This pioneered an underground movement that eventually broke into the mainstream. The kids you see nowadays wearing hot topic from head to toe and eyeliner for days are really just angsty little mall punk kids.

    So yeah, basically you're wrong.

    Oh and lose the jock mentality man, I really doubt that anyone here is worried about how many pushups you can do, if that's the case then I'd suggest you find your way to the Muscle Beach forum.
