    Hi guys I just bought my 1st pair of Nudies Grim Tims Dry orange selvage's (1 week of wear). The 1st pair i bought was a 32x34 which i could barely button the fly and looked terrible in my eyes. I returned them and got 33x34's which surprisingly was a bigger difference than a normal case of sizing up 1. I normally wear 33inch waist in most of my other jeans like my Diesel Safado's. I went with the smaller size because i have read so many people saying size down...I guess my question is what size should i get in the thin finns? I love the low yoke look as i like to wear my jeans low. My legs are a tad on the thick side and i am worried i wont be able to pull them off. PLEASE HELP!!!

    ^^^ I agree with you, the dry selvage shouldnt be treated like the organic/stretch pair. This is 13.25 oz denim where organic/dry ones are 11oz.
    I just get one today and I only down one size because if i do more i cant even bend my legs lol. Its a bit slim cut looking but i think it is how selvage should be worn.
    btw i am wearing size 28 on TLJ and 30 on TF dry selvage :)
    If the pic doesnt show up, go here http://instagr.am/p/JOocd1Qj3o/
    cheers.

    hey man when u get ur TFDFS, do they came with the tote bag / denim selvage bag and the dry selvage book? or just like normal washes with pocket book?
    anyone else have thoughts on these?
    cuz i didnt get anything besides a small pocket book like usual.
    cheers.

    Hi all

    Long time reader first time poster...

    Got a pair of these bad boys on the weekend.. Picked up a 34/34 (normal waist) and should have sized down 1. Have stretched a bit after a few wears, sit more like a slimmer sharp bengt on me (which is what a Finn is right?)

    Definately a solid jean and definately going to pillage them

    Will post fit pics soon

    Hello guys,

    I really wanted to buy these jeans as my first pair of selvage but it seems nudie have stopped making them and replaced them with these

    http://shop.nudiejeans.com/en/product/2124/org-dry-heavy-selv

    What are you opinions of these jeans? I'm just concerned they're going to fade much slower now they are organic?

    Thanks for your help!

    Been a while since anyone posted!

    I'm stoked I didn't size down, these jeans are very tough to wear with out the stretch denim in them. Would not recommend sizing down

    Nice jeans but can be uncomfortable when going up stairs etc. seem to fade reasonably quickly for only 3 days a week wear.

    Will try and get some pics up soon (said that last time but will get em up soon)

    @soap - Looking forward to follow the process on your TFDFS ! Considering ordering a pair of my own ... just a quick question: Would you recommend ordering true to size ( i wear 28/34 in TF Dry Stretch ) ?

    I Definately recommend true to size. I'm normally a 34/34 in thin Finn dry black coated/organic ecru and these fit a little more snug.. (im 34/34 in DFS) You really notice the lack of stretch in them

    Thnx for quick reply !!
    Do you think it would be wise to actually size up 1" since there is no stretch and to avoid that they shrink to much when washed ?!?

    To be honest if I had my chance again I would probably explore this option!

    Well - now i got them in true size 28/34 and the lack of stretch is really noticeable ! But they have stretch a bit and are really nice to wear now ! How are the fading-proces going with you other TFDFS guys ?

    I have a few pairs of GT selvage size 30 and just curious if I should get the same size or size up? Thinking about getting a pair after I break in my GT pimas.
