    so... up until this point ive had citizens, diesels, and rock&republics, but i finally decided to go raw. i am so pumped i did. just got my pair of ola dry's in the mail and couldnt be happier.

    my question is..... how much will they stretch. i sized down to a 29(i usually wear 30), and they are pretty tight in the waist and thighs. my mom is going to call me a girl if they pretty much stay the way they are(skin tight).

    im going to post some pictures later tonight/tomorrow after work for you guys.

    im waiting til tiro get mad again can't wait :D:D


    and about the question

    You did the right thing to size down. Ola denim streches the most of al nudie denim as i recalled. it wil strech alot but i think it wil turn out right since you sized down maby a half size to big in the end

    Also new to Nudies, and just got my first pair in Bootcut Ola. So far (a few hours?), I love them. Bought a 29x34, and will need to be hemmed. Normally a 30 in citizens or lucky's, the 29 is pretty snug but already stretching.

    Posted pictures, and any critical comments welcome.

    Also have a pair of 28x32 on order so I'll have a fitted and slightly baggy pair. The 29's have already stretched a lot in the few hours since I took the first shots.

    Very happy to find these! A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I went shopping and I tried on some dozen pairs of citizens, Joe's, EW's, William Rast's, ect. She knows my taste and luckily is more critical than I, and she flipped when she saw these nudies a few hours ago.

    Well, there you have my novella....thanks to this board, as all the info helped me find the beginning of a cool denim journey. peace

    agree, those don't look tight. Not sure about those pictures, but my pics are in the photo section.

    I don't quite understand what you're getting at there. You mean you have big thighs?

    Also,

    Yea...lol.

    I do. Unfortunately I'm predisposed to fast twitch muscles, so my legs are pretty big from sports. I'm slowwwwly trying to attain some long distance runner type legs :p

    well, we al have different body types, so luckily there are lots of different cuts and sizes of denim out there. I'm a cyclist so kinda have a lean muscular build and love the way the Ola's fit.

    I've been thinking about other low rise raw denim. Any ideas? PBJ 005 or 008 and Eternal 811 or 866 (the bootcut) might be cool. Also the Somet 008, although I can't find those anywhere.
