    I found some at a local store (Tube Kelly Rinsed I believe, with the dark blue stitching?) and took some pictures. I apologize for the poor picture quality as they were taken with my phone as well I was in a rush to leave.

    I typically wear size 27/28 in Nudies, these TK's were size 27. But my goodness, they were very stretchy. I didn't check the tags, but I'm pretty sure there is around 2-3% elastane in them. The fabric is kind of funny though, it's not as 'heavy' as some other Nudies and reminds me of Cheap Monday denim actually. I don't quite remember at this point though haha.

    I do have a shot of the back...but it came out blurry and is a poor representation of the fit (had to twist around to get the shot) so I don't think it would be very helpful.

    I've posted both the pictures of my Finn's and the Kelly's. Despite the difference of 1 size, they pretty much fit the same. Really, I think they fit like a tighter and stretchier Thin Finn, just without the low yoke. Perhaps a hybrid between Tight Long John + Thin Finn? lol.

    To confirm what Keetner says, they are TEH stretch. I tried on a pair of HKDR in size 29/34, fit like a glove. Then I tried the TKDR 29/34 were like a tent. Eventually I ended up with 27/34. They were damn comfy too, might invest in a pair.

    I tried on a pair today.

    They have an absolutely amazing fit. That's all I can say about them.

    If I wasn't so obsessed with Finns I'd try these out. The stretchiness seems like a good thing as long as they don't say out in the knees and butt. I love how my Finns look but they're not as flexible as I would like.

    I have just ordered a pair of Tube Kelly 31/34.
    I did size down one from my Finns, I hope that they will fit me.

    My new Tube Kelly

    My new Tube Kelly 31/34 has finally arrived.
    They are very comfy and I do like them better than my Tight Long Johns.
    Day one. How is the fit?

    That's one of the first real fitpics I see... looks good, but not perfect IMO. If the waist is even lower than TLJ (and it looks like that), it's really much like a girl's jeans (but i wouldn't have thought so? Thought it was meant as an unisex fit). Addionally, they seem too snug on the upper legs for my liking. But if you're satisfied it's enough ;-)

    Edit: According to th size chart the TLJ is lower in waist, but from your pics I wouldn't have guessed that.

    They look good, the pocket sit lower and that gives a good look. I cant´t see how tight they are on, but look tight from the picture . So imagine you rock them now to feel them on.

    Yeah they are quite tight on now, but I expect that they will stretch out after some wear

    I like the fit Greglow. Is the length alright? I think a little more fabric+a little more sag would've been nice

    Yeah I can probably sag them a bit more after they have stretched out. The length is Ok imo. I could probably gotten a L36 to get more stacking.

    @Greglow Love the fit! Maybe a bit tight, but they'll be fine once they stretch some.
