    How much harder is the TFDC to break in than the regular dry? And is it true that TFDC has a longer yoke than the TFD?

    Nice thread btw :D

    I think they are the same cut. I haven't heard anything different.

    I used to think that the comforts took longer for fading, but now I'm not sure.

    I have seen some great pics of the comforts after some wear. I like the streaky look, and the indigo stitching.

    In my opinion, I would say they are comparable to each other, but the dry stretch might be a bit faster fading.

    I'd say TFDC is Dry Comfort. The Dry Coated would be DIC (Dry Indigo Coated) DBC (Dry Black Coated) etc...

    slim jim sizing and thin finn sizing are exactly the same. Coated denim runs half a size bigger and has a bigger leg opening by 1cm in the same size as a regular dry....

    Levi's 511 = Thin Finns?

    I have some slim jims size 32 x 32 in dry and they aren't as tight as I would've hoped. I am a big fan of the 511 cut from levi's and I was wondering if thin finns are a more comparable fit to the 511's than the jims are? Thanks for the helppp!!

    Yes the thin finns would be closest to the 511 because they both have a skinny taper. The slim jims are more of a slim straight tube leg. Hope that helps.

    wats up guys first post on this forum but i have been wearing nudies for about 2 years now. i got a pair of nudies thin fin dry blacks and they dont seem like they have faded that mmuch i have had them for about a year. i did wash them at the beginning because they were to big and i wanted to shrink them. now they are perfect and i have been wearig them for about a year without a wash. does the dry black just not fade much or what?

    Dry blacks are extremely hard to get wear. Just keep on wearing them hard, and they will look nice in the end.

    They both look black.

    You can't really see a difference until they are side by side.

    Well you could try emailing Dejan at info@cultizm.com
    Maybe he could order in a pair for you.

    so before i make my decision, will both ultra indigo coated and DBC have the same type of fading (in this case the shiny and waxy look) ?
