    i recently got myself a pair of grim tim nudie but i wanted something of a tighter fit.
    should i taper it or should i wait till 6months before giving it a hot wash. will tapering them spoil the jeans? and will shortening the jeans cause the hem stitch to be lost? thanks!

    You paid for it and if you're unhappy with the fit, you can do whatever you want to improve them. If you have a lot of room in the waist, you might consider a hot wash and dryer, but that's at your own risk and might not even have a significant effect. If you have a good tailor - go for it. The chainstitch is much overrated IMO.

    In general, my advice is to take the cut as it is and buy a TLJ instead if theyre too wide (though i can hardly imagine myself squeezing in GTs, so I'm not the one to understand your problem :lol:)

    (GT aren't that slim, that's true. I tried a size 34 last week and would have bought a 33 if I wanted a pair)


    You can taper them, no problem. But as MaxPower said, you might look into other cuts that better fulfill your needs

    If you would like a tighter fit I would recommend sizing one down on a pair of Thin Finns. Making a 100% cotton pair of jeans too tight is not a pleasant experience.
