    I used to be a big Diesel fan, too. They were the ones that got me infected with IJFS. :-D I still like them, and still own 3 pairs of them (including my first pair ever, the Rabox), as well as 2 pairs that I cut off into shorts, but sadly they started making some of their stuff in Tunisia and I got duped into buying a Tunisian made Diesel once which wasn't so cool. Anyway, I just wore my raw Nudies today for the first time and I'm not turning back! Definitely becoming a nudist! LOL

    To get the same actual size for a TF-DBC u need to get one taged size smaller then other TFs like the ODEE, so for U a 29 would be fine. Sadly enough I know so from bad experience. Also the DBC stretches out more then usual so i think a 28 would not be impossible (depends your current fit obv.) but then the fit on the thighs will be skin tight.

    Edit:
    But if u do not mind a looser fit.. I am thinking of selling mine TF-DBC W30L34. It's like new, no shine yet. Don't know about the shipping costs (Netherlands to Vancouver) though.

    ^ is right. I wear a 30 in TFODEE and my 30 TFDBC was wayyyy too big after stretching out. I returned them for a 29 and am much happier. They are definitely tighter than my TFODEE though. So like it was said before, it really matters how you want them to fit.

    I hear you, I picked up a pair of Darron 8UP black stretch jeans and it was my first pair of Tunisia.. maybe its a calling now that i'm looking for a pair of Nudie DBC?? hahahaha.. however Diesel still makes many of their jeans in Italy; now mainly more expensive washes. For Spring/Summer 2012 famous Italian washes are 888P (in Thavar or Branddom), 886B (in Thavar) and 887D (in Braddom only). so always be sure to check the Italian color stitch before you buy ;-)

    I was so happy to read until you said W30. hahaha.. I'm definitely going for a 29 or maybe 28 cuz right now there's 1 going for around $70... the measurement from waist w/ dip is approxmiately 14.75" (37.47cm). My 30's ODEE is around 15.25" (38.74cm) after wearing them for about 20 times. The seller of the 28's TF DBC said the jeans are mint and have not been stretched yet so I may be able to fit.... maybe I'd just buy it and try it and if my legs go numb I'll try to sell them again..

    I guess I want a skinny fit but not skin tight legging look-a-like fit.. does this make sense? hahaha.. I don't think I have thick legs but I am not bird skinny either.. most of my Diesel's now is their skinniest cut, Tepphar (carrot fit, super slim legs). I think I'll give 28 a try and then keep everyone update w/ the results once I get them in about 1.5-2 weeks!!!!

    I'd say a 29 honestly. From everything you've said 28 will be insanely tight. There are photos in my gallery of how a 30 TFODEE and 29 TFDBC fit me for comparison. I'm a 29 in thavar/thanaz if that helps.

    Really?? crap i just gave up on bidding on a pair of 29's.. but i think its not too bad since the seller says its worn 3 yrs not washed yet might be bit disgusting...

    I'm a 28 in Thanaz and Thavar, most washes.. shxxxt. I'm gonna try to navigate around to find your gallery right now.

    [update] just saw all your photos.. beautiful fit pix. Yah i'd like the TFDBC to fit like how 29 fit on you; but I think the TFODEE fits bit tighter on you than me on the 30... I'll try the 28 and if it doesn't fit i'll 1) loose weight, or 2) sell it hahaha..

    oh on side note, the one I was thinking to buy has Tan leather badge instead of black ones. I think this just means its an older production line right?

    Could mean that...could also mean its the black coated indigo.

    But if the 30 TFODEE is looser on you try the 28 and see how it goes. Luckily I had the chance to try them on in store first.

    Hi everyone!! I've been a dry denim enthusiast for a loong time, since i got my first pair of nudies when I was 14. They had bootcut..

    Found this forum and i thought it looked really cool, but some people keep washing their pairs way toooo early!

    I'll post some pics of Levi's and my Wranglers, so check'em out !!

    hi guys

    i`m new here and i just recently found about nudie and the great jeans they make.

    Can I get some recommendations on what fit should i get ? I have relatively big thighs and wear mostly tappered and carrot fits(been a huge Diesel fan - love darron and krooley) and i was leaning Grimm Tim,though Thin Finn and Tape Ted also look quite good.Can someone tell what would the differences on those 3 are ?

    cheers

    Hi guys, i want to ask, is it okay for hot soak my TLJ denim stretch? Soaking will do any harm with the fading process? Because it smells too bad nowadays :-o Thankyou. It's nearly 3month worn in, and the crotch is dangerous, nearly blow out

    hei guys I just received my grim tim dry dirt organic and they are tight at the waist.i went with my usual waist size 30 and was wondering if they will stretch(my guess is they will,since they are 100% cotton but they are my first nudies and i dont want any mistakes) so what do you think should i seize up or wear them around the house and wait ?
