    Thanks dudes :)

    I think it looks ok too, but my gf doesn't like it... oh well, guess she'll just have to deal with it then.

    Hey guys I was hoping to get some advice on a little thought I was having. I'm heading to New York City tomorrow and I was hoping to splurge on a pair of jeans. Apparently Macy's is having a pretty solid sale on Levi's 514's and a couple of other brands. I did spot a nice pair of Gap selvage jeans for sale too, but it's a little more up there in price. Any opinions on the 514's? I've never bought a pair of levis so I'm oblivious to the fit.

    The 514s fit alright, they're kinda like Jims (except maybe a little bit looser). But why exactly are you going to Macy's if you're looking to "splurge" on jeans? :p

    I can get like 3 or 4 pairs of Levis for one pair of Nudies.

    Anyone here who's dryer-experienced? Can I expect an overall shrinkage while hot drying a sanforized pair?

    I don't think it will shrink much, if at all...

    I've always experienced shrinkage when drying anything, regardless of whether it's sanforized or not.

    yea, it's a temporary [esthetic] fix while they are still dark/dry. once you start washing the [ugliness] will begin to surface.

    Same here, it's a shame Nudie seems to discontinue all of their good models :-(

    And from what I can gather, it's the same denim as RRDS, so... 13.5 oz? Something like that. Don't take my word for it though :p
