    And is it true that the Grim Tim Open Dry Selvage is a bit looser on the thighs than a Dry Orange Selvage? If so, significantly looser or just a small bit?

    yes it is certainly looser as i've tried both in size 29... i chose e Open one as it is less uncomfortable.. too hard ?
    but i'd get e open selvage one size smaller than my reg waist size... as they do stretch out after a wk or wear..

    I can't post a new thread, so I guess I should ask here. I bought a pair of grim tims and slim jims in 32 waist/34 length (not dry jeans; yes im a noob, but im definitely getting dry next time). I like that the grim tims taper off and are much more slim at the bottom half of my legs, compared to the slim jims. However, overall my legs actually look fatter because it looks 'baggy' at my thighs. The slim jims aren't as slim at the bottom but overall looks much more slick. I checked the nudie website, and the only difference between the two is that the leg opening is smaller for grim like i said and that for 32 waist, the grim tim has a .2cm wider waist. It will be way to small to try to size down to a 31. Why is this? i thought grim tims were the slimmer than slim jims, looking at the order that each model is lined up on the website. I really wish i could combine the bottom half of grim tims with the top half of slim jims.... any way to remedy this? oh and i wear my jeans on my waist, and not low. I have short legs so wearing jeans low makes me look even more ridiculous than i already am

    Different cuts...

    Are you sure it's not possible to size down to 31 on the grim tim?
    Waist can stretch quite a bit with time, and with nudie it should be possible to size down 2 from your true size.

    The tube kelly is pretty close to the grim tim, with elastane in the denim (means you can size down more). Be aware of the lower waist though.
    Thin Finn is close too, but you may not like the low backpockets.

    i'll try that, but seems like it might not work. 31 waist in grim tim brings waist down from 43 to 41.8 cm. also lose a little bit (.5cm) on front rise. i don't know if .5 cm will be that noticeable, but short legs and low rise do not go well together. do prewashed jeans also get a little loose over time? i've read that dry ones do...and sorry for being a little off topic, but does anyone know of a brand that makes slim fitting jeans/pants with normal front rise?

    You just described the GT exactly; all it really is is the SJ with a tapered leg opening. They are considered "slimmer" on the fit scale because of this taper (though it often results in this misconception that Tims are actually tighter).

    U shouldn't worry too much about the sizes in the size chart, it is just a guide line. All denim stretches out, pre-washed too, also the actual size is different for different washes. I have two Grim Tims 30, both sized down two sizes from TTS. One (with elastane) used to be a bit tight on the waist but was fine after a day or two. The other one was fine to begin with, wouldn't want it any looser. For both the legs fit slim, but not skin tight.

    I recently 'discovered' April77 link they have a big collection skinny (Joey) and slim (Dictator) fitting jeans with a regular rise.

    Hi, does anyone know or could measure the measurements for a GT dry in size 29? i got some of the measurements on the nudie site but i'd like to know the rear rise and thigh width. i tried finding the measurements online but they're kinda confusing as some of them have different measurements. i'd like to get a similar fit as my apc ps size 29. hope someone could help me with this. thanks.

    nas, I wear a size 28 PS and I am unsure of what size to get as well. Im thinking of getting a size 29 or 28, what did you end up getting and how did the sizing go?

    hey, i went with a 29 for the GT. my PS are 29 as well. the sizing was perfect. it was a little tight around the waist at first but its all good now. i noticed the waist doesn't stretch as quick/as bad than the PS.

    i measured my TFDBC and went with the waist sizing on those. fit wise compared to the PS, the GTs are less tapered(around 0.25" bigger leg opening). the top block is slightly bigger on the GT(around 0.25" as well. basically the GTs are slightly looser than the PS but not much. it fits like a same sized PS that is slightly stretched out on all the places that'll stretch out(like thighs and maybe knees).

    if you want the GTs to fit similar to your PS, go for the 28. unless your PS fits super tight. i'd say, get your favourite pair and measure the jeans. then look for the GT measurements online and compare it. or you could try it at the store.


    hope it helps. :)

    I was recently trying on my SJDB with boots and the problem I always have is that since SJ is straight leg the jeans keep flopping out if I try to tuck them. My question is, is the GT considerably tighter at the bottom? or does it still have a lot of space particularly in the calf and ankle areas? should I maybe consider an even slimmer model for this (tape ted maybe?)

    my second question is how do the GTBB compare to SJDB or even other dry jeans in terms of stretch (especially in the waist and thighs)? and should I size down? http://www.cultizm.com/product_info.php?info=p606_Nudie-Jeans-Grim-Tim-Broken-Black.html

    Thanks in advance!

    additional info: I am 5'7 and wear a size 28 as regular size

    I've got a question about GT46dips. My question is, do the GT46d fade/break in similarly to a more expensive selvege after 6months of wear? I'm guessing selvege is best but is dry good enough? They say they're 13.5 oz. dry. I'm stoked on the price at 150 usd, and the jeans look sweet, am I missing something?

    They break in quite nice from what I hear, selvedge is just the way the denim is formed/sewn in production. They'll turn out sweet for sure!

    Thanks. I got the jeans and they are great but I'm having second thoughts about the fit. The pants fit perfectly everywhere but the waist, yet I can button them and walk around. The only problem is sitting down, then its quite a bit tighter. I suppose I could keep them and wait for them to stretch. Will they loosen up an inch in a few months or should I return these? Problem is next size up will be too loose.

    The waist will definitely stretch out! give it a little bit and they should stretch up to a full inch, once they've stretched, use a belt to keep them at the waist you like

    I can't seem to find an answer to this, but what is the difference between the Dirt Dry Organic Grim Tim vs The 46 Dips Grim Tim. They look almost identical.

    blue threads on the back pocket on the dips, orange on the dry dirt, the dips I believe are 13.5oz vs a 13.2oz (don't quote that number lol), and the dips as stated by the name have been dipped in the indigo dye 46 times. The dips are much stiffer and a darker indigo colour

    Grim Tim in size 31 should be = 33" waist (i.e. 16.5" across waist), 9.7" front rise, 7.3" leg opening.
    In size 32 they should be = 33.8" waist (i.e. 16.9" across waist), 9.8" front rise, 7.5" leg opening.
    This is from the fit guide on the Nudie Jeans website, just turn the dimensions on.
