    I'm new to the taking jeans seriously thing and would like to buy a good pair of jeans that will last a while. I have some questions though and I know you guys can answer them for me. Are nudie jeans raw? Are they selvedge? I would like my jeans to be both of those. I'm a bigger guy and have a big upper body. If I buy jeans that are narrow or skinny, I look like a potato on tooth picks, therefore, I've always bought baggy, loose boot cut jeans and I'm not changing with the skinny jean era. Which Nudies have the baggiest, loosest fit with the biggest leg opening? I did some research and thought the boot cut ola looked good or the fast Freddie, but, I see that those are both discontinued. I just need to know which jeans have the biggest leg openings and loosest leg. Thanks for all the help!

    P.S. What other brands of raw,selvedge jeans have cuts that describe what I'm looking for? Please help, I'm pretty desperate.

    First of all Nudie Jeans http://www.nudiejeans.com/shop/. That's where you start. Others Like APC and Naked and Famous Jeans, but I prefer nudie. Dry simply means the Jeans are dipped in a dye and never pre-washed or distressed by manufacturer (nudie offers traditional jeans as well). Selvage means the production method for the Jeans, its an oldschool method of making denim that requires more...everything. It's thicker, more durable, takes more time to break in, and is as an effect more expensive. Nudie offers multiple fits for all different bodies (http://www.nudiejeans.com/break-in/#fitguide). You buy Dry jeans as tight as you can get them. They becomes soft, and stretch to conform to your body - hence second skin. The dye fades gradually in the stress points of wear, leaving the fades that make Dry jeans desirable. The biggest thing is wear them everyday for somewhere around 6 months, and DO NOT WASH them until then. NEVER put them in the drier. I hope this helps, maybe someone else can answer any additional questions you may have. Also, Google IS YOUR FRIEND.

    Hello new here. Lots of different views on here on whether to size down or not with dry nudies? Are they all sanforised? I'm a 32 inside seam but wear washed jeans 34 with a turn up cuff. If buying dry should I get 36 inside seam? Thanks

    Pretty sure nudies are all sanforised. In my experience, nudies do come up quite large for their tagged size. Eg. I would wear a 28 waist in Levi 501 Shrink to Fit, but my nudie Grim Tim was tagged size 27, and I think it's about right.

    Stick with the 34 inseam if that's what you wear. Maybe you want to double cuff while maintaing the length then go with a 36 and that could look good with a pair of salvege if you want the cuffs to rest on your shoes.
