    Hi i just went back to the jeans store
    I try tight long john and then i try on the high kai both black color both 30waist line

    So when i was trying the long john it flt like looks col But not as skinny as i could imagine like emos would wear as an example style, Im a 30waist line.. notice the long john jeans was kinder loose around the waist line it fited confortable but felt like i was much skinnier then what i thought. It felt like i need a 28 sizes instead which was strange.

    Then i try HIGH KAI jeans felt nice and looks 98% the same looking skinny jeans as the first one (long john) I notice that around my waist line felt slightly tigher.. Again it was sizes 30 since im sizes 30. But felt alittle too tight on the waist ones i put the zip up. So again it looks confortable but not as skinny as these emos dudes out there wearings kinny jeans

    I mean both jeans looks nice and skinny but the reason why i say it did not look like skinny perfect jeans is because the mid section of the jeans looked shrinked as if the jeans are long... then notice the low ends of the jeans were my foot is felt like the jeans was alittle too long.

    Ive try wranglers black skinny jeans in black looks perfect emo looking jeans. Oh tho very hard to take them off ones i wear them of course..

    But yeah im very very picky with the design of skinny jeans course ive try around from cheap to moderate price tag and most dont allways look perfect skinny jeans.

    Oh though have to remember that
    WRANGLERS SKINNY BLACK JEANS: 98% cotton and 2% elastine
    NUDIE LONG JOHN / NUDIE HIGH KAI: 98% cotton and 2% lyc

    So maybe just maybe the (lyc) is the problem about the jeans oh tho not allways because i did felt quite confortable wearing NUDIES while i try them on. But still not as happy as i thought about looking them as true skinny jeans. It did look skiny jeans just that the full lenth of my leg did not fully looked like it.. it was like half skinny and half wasnt. So imagine that

    Im 175cmtall and my waist line is 30'

    Notice that
    NUDIE skinny jeans (tight long john) in black was sizes 30" as predicted and it was 32in lenth.
    So if only maybe just maybe it was lenth 31 instead ? dunno


    One thing is i would never wear skinny jeans and then try to folk them over on the low ends..... like the models on the nudie shows.. just looks slightly rediculours..... I mean that wont look good at all specialy i been a typical emo dude who loves to wear black skinny jeans.

    I mean over all Nudies are so expensive 240.00 AUD in australia believe it or not.
    Umm I still think wranglers skinny jeans are 100% kick-ass jeans.. I mean they dont cost expensive for us its like 129.00 dollars
    But still focusing on the Nudie jeans.

    I just dont want a NUDIE skinny black jeans that looks like half skinny and half isnt because it looks like its too long or not.

    My wranglers jeans the skinny black jeans are sizes 30 around my waist line and it is 33top to bottom lenth. And fits perfect. But strugling to take them off..
    While Nudie is easier to take them off easier. But remember the differents.

    Anyways i just wanted to share my thoughts about this as of this date and would like some viewers to reply back to this. take care

    PEACE

    Its only a decition what to do about buying.

    Spandex or elastane is a synthetic fibre known for its exceptional elasticity.
    It is a polyurethane-polyurea copolymer that was invented in 1959 by chemist Joseph Shivers at DuPont's Benger Laboratory in Waynesboro, Virginia.
    Brand names for spandex include Lycra (made by Invista, previously a part of DuPont), Elaspan (also Invista's), Creora (Hyosung), ROICA and Dorlastan (Asahi Kasei), Linel (Fillattice), and ESPA (Toyobo)

    So there is no difference between elastane and lycra

    I think the difference is that Nudie jeans models Tight Long John and High Kais have stretch fibers in both direction in the fabric. This make them really stretchy.
    Other Nudie models and probably also your Wranglers with stretch has only the stretch fiber in one direction, therefore they are not as stretchy as TLJ and HK.

    Alright, so first of all, and this is just my opinion, but emo died in 2008, and is just an awful trend (always was really). I get that it's your personal thing, but there is so much more you could be doing with skinny jeans that isn't so... bad.

    Anyways, Tight Long Johns are vanity sized, so the waist that it has on the tag are about 2 sizes smaller than what the jean really measures.
    High Kais are the skinniest jean Nudie makes, so if you want skinny, then that's the way to go.

    As for your whole lycra/elastane thing, it's basically the same material. Trust me, you will want the stretch when you buy them. Moving in skinny jeans with no give is a bitch, at least I find.

    Nudies are definitely worth the price. I figure, I'm wearing them every day, so I don't have to justify I'm going to get good use for my money.

    To be honest I have no idea, though. Your posts are really confusing, if you ask me.

    You can say that again. Skinny jeans with no lycra is a pain and personally, I wouldn't have the patience to wait for it to stretch.

    Nice set of pics!

    I like how honeycombs look sharp and regular on that kind of jeans.

    With some repairs, last pair looks like it could have its life extended, no?

    selling my HK's

    Hey,
    I started this thread and just letting you all know that I'm selling my HK's on ebay. I have hardly worn them and so I don't feel I should keep them around even though they're really nice and comfortable. They haven't even been washed yet. Plus I could use the money.

    LOL, I've only worn them about 5 times or so. They pretty much look the same now as in my pics here.
