You get what you pay for at that price. N&F are fine for their price. In terms of construction, their quality does not come close to the japanese brands (made in japan).

If you are making the step up from G-Star, then i'm sure you will be impressed.

Hi,

Does anybody have pictures of N&F Easy Guy Jeans? I am planning to pickup my first pair of Raw/Selvedge jeans and tilting towards N&F Easy Guys as it seems to meet my requirements (Japanese Selvedge Denim+High Rise+Tapered Fit).

How does N&F compare to some other brands here that people seem to like - Sugarcane, orSlow, Edwin etc?

Be sure to look at size charts again. The Easy Guys are not high rise jeans by anything but the use of highly relative marketing terminology. They are higher than any of N&F's other men's cuts (IIRC), but they're not high on an absolute level. They're definitely mid-rise jeans. My 34 Easy Guys (which are actually 37's due to a healthy amount of vanity sizing) have a 12 inch rise, which is actually a tad low for that size waistband. That's exactly how Gustin sizes their Straight cut jeans (12" rise with 37" measured waist). Both my Easy Guys and my Gustins have a slightly lower slung feel than all of my 501's...and those 501's are mid-rise jeans.

All the so-called "high tapered" cuts I know of are not *actually* high rise jeans; they're just "higher" rise jeans than most of the other stuff the company makes. If you want a truly high taper, you'll probably have to buy a high-straight cut and then have it altered.

That is a very helpful response, thank you. I am glad I did not order N&F or the Unbranded Brand UB601 Loose Tapered. Both brands seem related.

My Levi's 501 is probably the shortest rise I own and I hate it. I have proper High rise, tastefully tapered jeans from G-star (poor denim quality) and some very good ones from Nudie Jeans. Nudie makes a cut called 'Brute Knut' and its 13" rise. G-Star is probably 14" rise. I guess both of them may have some Japanese raw selvedge on offer, I should look there as I am familiar with the fits.

Some people suggested Warehouse 800 and Pure Blue Japan etc but none of that stuff is available on reliable online stores like Amazon, Nordstrom or Rakuten. It doesn't help that I live in India.

 

BTW take a look at these as this is a N&F thread & Unbranded is probably owned by them

Unbranded is owned by N&F. N&F is made in Canada with Japanese denim, while Unbranded is made off-shore.

@i_denim don't be constrained by using Amazon etc, and sticking to G Star/ Nudie theres plenty of reliable sites you can trust to order from who I'm sure will deliver to India. We can chip in with advice on sites etc. I'd bet money on Denimio shipping to India!

Have you looked at Japan Blue for a high rise tapered fit?

That's very kind of you.

Yes, I researched Japan Blue extensively but despite them having many tapered and even a High Tapered cut, the rise measurements are not really High.

So far, I have only found Sugar Cane Jeans with a front rise I like (>13 inch). However, they seem to be very straight fit while I need tapered.

Warehouse 800 is coming with a lot of recommendations here but they are costing a bomb to buy from warehouse directly. Still, I haven't decided against it.

So yeah, Sugarcane and Warehouse seem to be leading this party for me on quality brands while Unbranded brand was leading it on low cost options. 

I like the look of orslow 105 and 107 but the rise is tool short at 11.5.

I am kicking myself for being in Japan 2 years ago and not knowing anything about denim back then. I came back with 4 pairs of Uniqlo Jeans back then though they served me very well.

The 32oz Weird Guy is back in stock but I'd like to propose a moment of silence for these measurements:

I'd love to hear from anyone who have copped a pair... Or thinking about it... I sure was looking forward to this but "painted on -fit" is not really how I roll.

Hi,

I hope you guys can help me out.  I just purchased a pair of weirds guys at a second hand store.  I noticed the hardware does not say naked and famous on it and the patch at the back is brown suede.  I am wondering if it is real because I've never seen that before.  The quality seems decent and the selvedge is definately legit.

Thanks in advance!

N&F have branded buttons and the patch on the back usually has their logo. Why do you think they’re N&F if they don’t say so?

Those are the buttons that Unbranded uses (used?), so they are probably a shorter or limited run.

The easiest solution would be to contact N&F and ask them about the buttons on your pair. Either their buttons have always been branded or they weren’t at some point

I tried contacting them and haven't got an email back but I did some more research and there are definately many more like mine out there and the quality is definately good. 

I just wanted to share I got this for a steal. I found it in dingy vintage store in a pile of jeans for $20. It was my exact size, tapered to exactly how I like it, softened and worn very nicely.  Who needs stretchy fast fashion! Haha
