    I like them a lot. The fit is great, and they are already starting to fade a bit. The indigo isn't as dark as my Skulls, but it is a great shade of blue. They are pretty light-weight, so they have been nice to wear and skate in during this hot summer.

    I would highly recommend them, especially for the price. (I received mine for a little over $100 with coupons from Context Clothing.)

    wait.. i thought the thin finn was a slim jim with a tighter leg... isn't that similar to ns since it also tapers? and yes most people, i've read, go down 2 or 3 sizes. they do this because apc stretch way more than nudies would.

    If you don't want them too tight get 29x34 in the NS. Just remember they strech A LOT.

    Jeez, they really stretch that much? I mean, my Jims are a bit tighter than I'd like (but they still fit pretty well) and I want my NS to fit looser. They stretch an extra 2 sizes?

    Sounds like you sized down one on slim jims if they're a little tight. So go down one more on ns. Best way to go with ns is size down 2 from your normal waist size. They are oversized by one size easily and stretch one size.

    get a 30.

    the rule is as follows:

    new standards: 2-3 sizes down...(a 32 waist actual measurement is 34) 2 if you want snug fit, 3 if you can deal with button busters for 3 weeks.

    new cure: 1-2 sizes down...(a 32 waist actual measurement is 33)

    if you simply search this in google, you will get the same people telling you the same things.:-D
