    Which one is skinny tighter? i got TLJ 3 months back, and now the thigh/back area turn a big sag, its not as tight as when i bought it.
    do you have to wash it to make it tight again? its Dry jeans though...

    also is High Kai as tight as TLJ or much tighter? kinda dissapointed if it gets sag again! should i downsize the next time i buy?
    i have 31/32 now, seems it gets a bit bigger now.

    TLJs are known to stretch out a lot esp. on the waist, so you should take that into account if you buy one. Washing them will shrink them, but they will stretch out again, so no permanent solution.

    I tried a High Kai once and if you get them right on the waist a High Kay is slightly slimmer on the thighs I noticed and obvious the rise is higher. However they run way smaller on the waist for the same tagged size than TLJs. You'll need to size up, by 2 i think.

    i didnt know TLJ's are known to stretch out a lot on the waist!, wish i had done my research! but yesterday i bought a pair of High Kai and they do look a lot tighter. but do they stretch out like TLJs as well on the waist/in general or they will stay the same?? bought my TLJ size 31, now my High Kais is 30.

    i got it for great price 50% discount. so i had nothing to lose.

    Concrats with the discount.
    Wow, you downsized from your TLJ size, that will be quite a tight HK fit I presume. But I'm quite sure they will stretch a bit, as all denim does.

    When i tried them i decided not to buy them because I didn't like the rise, so I have no personal experience with the stretching of HK. But based on experiences of others, you can read about in the HK or TLJ threads, they probably will stretch not as much as your TLJ. But the tighter you start the more/faster they stretch and also different models (fabric) will stretch differently of course.

    thanks for the info! haha yeah i started off pretty tight, but now seems theyre stretch pretty good, thats what i thought too at first, buy them real tight cuz i know they will stretched good in the end. ive never been happier. compared to my TLJ, so far this is the best jeans ive ever got, in terms of quality, price and fits haha.
    so im selling my TLJ to my bro in law in AUS and ill be getting more High Kai in the future! they were super tight the first time i wore, now its just perfect!
    now i know how nudie size goes.. so if i want to get TLJ in the future, i probably should go for 29 waist ..if my waist 30...or maybe 28... cuz i heard itll stretch 2 inches..
    in the waist for TLJ
