    So I think I'm going to pick up a pair of these and was curious to know from those who've had them a few weeks, how much is the stretch? Context clothing online suggests sizing down for them but I don't want them too tight so do true to size become too baggy?

    I would not size down on the Grim Tim. I actually sized up on these because I found them too tight. Now they have stretched some in the waist and are a little loose but very comfortable. If you are worried about stretching just go with your regular size as in other dry Nudies. I think I read here that bilmaga sized up his Grims too so check with him.

    well, you can always count on 100% cotton dry jeans to strech.
    The tighter they are the more they strech, that is logical right?? :D
    I would size up one size from my RRDS on theese.

    Fos5 said they run a size small so size up one from your regular nudie size

    This is why I sized up one. The 30 tim measured the same as most of my 29 nudies.

    Thanks everyone all the responses were super helpful. I actually just purchase a pair earlier from the context website. They're doing a 50% on all items in stock which includes a pretty good selection of nudies so be sure to check it out.

    so i tried on some grim tims yesterday in my normal size a 32
    and they fit exactly how i want them to
    the waist was tight but it wasnt that hard to button them

    so should i try to get 31's because of the stretch or should i stay with the 32's?

    I guess it depends on what fit you like better.

    Since these have the stretch in them, they don't lose their shape that bad. When they do, a cold soak fixes that.

    Oops. I thought I clicked on the HK section:oops:

    Disregard everything I just said.

    If the 32's fit nice, I would get those.

    Lou on this forum sized down and he ended up having to sell them because they didn't stretch out enough.

    I would get them so that the waist is nice ad snug, not too tight.

    oh no problem
    yeah they fit perfect like a new pair of jeans
    tight in the waist but not uncomfortable
    i havent bought any nudies that didnt have stretch in them yet so i was alittle worried

    yeah i have a pair of high kias and love them

    they really stretch to fit your legs while still staying tight.

    I grabbed a pair yesterday in my true size in the organic dry. they fit tight in the crotch and thighs, but the waist is a hair loose. sizing down was not an option. I think they are going to be perfect. I cant wait to see how the organic denim wears...

    it may depend on the actual size that youre going to buy. my 28 grim tim is as tight or loose as my slim jim and thin finn of that same size... i would take your normal nudie size.

    So what do you normally wear in your nudies? So you needa size down on the tims? I think the grim tim cut is awesome but not that much is known about them yet...

    I have a pair 32/32 been wearing for over a month now. There is minimal stretching to mine. I think I should've gone with 31/32 for a tighter fit, but the 32/32 still fit perfectly fine.
