Raw for Women

Recommended Posts

Yeah I'll try get some fit pics up soon. She got the same size as me, but she got hers hemmed. The problem with that is the that the taper gets cut so her leg opening is a bit bigger than she'd like. Nothing major, but still

anyone have recommendations for a raw jean with a curvy cut? I'm looking for an 11.5" thigh if 100% cotton or 11"-11.5" with stretch at a size 29 or 30. Measurements are 27.5" natural waist, 33" upper hips (about where jeans would sit on average), 38.5" hips, and 22.5-23" thighs. In prewashed denim I have to buy curvy cuts for the waist to not gape in the back. Every pair of raw denim I've come across seems tailored to a more slim fit, or at least not a curvy one. Sling & Stones Delilah is the only thing that looks large enough from the size chart, but I'd prefer a straight leg and under $200.

I'm also 5'9" so i'd want a 34 inseam (to get some stacking)

i recently got some levi 511s at size 31, which are slightly loose in the waist and almost too tight in the thigh (they measure at 11.3" ish across), so i assume that most men's skinny jeans are also out.

^ i think you can actually fit in some N&F skinny guys or weird guys depending on what your rise is at where you measured 33" where they sit. youre tall though so im sure the rise cant be too high, guessing ~9-10"?

for skinny guys

* Size 32 (33" waist, 9.75" rise, 11.25" thigh, 8.1" knee, 37.5" inseam, 7.5" leg opening)

* Size 33 (34" waist, 9.75" rise, 11.5" thigh, 8.25" knee, 37.5" inseam, 7.7" leg opening)

for weird guys

* Size 30 (32" waist, 10" rise, 11.5" thigh, 8.3" knee, 35" inseam, 7.25" leg opening)

* Size 31 (33" waist, 10" rise, 11.75" thigh, 8.5" knee, 35" inseam, 7.4" leg opening)

their measurements vary from model to model so just see if these would even fit your liking first.

I actually tried on some weird guys today! the waist still gaps a tiny but in the back but honestly not more than the average women's jean. from the size chart they (size 31) should've been perfect but they were tight in the thighs. maybe it was because they were the linen blends? maybe those ran a bit small

they were the only ones in stock to try on sadly. i'll go to the barney's in town and try on some of their plain old selvedge

the linen blend's run small - i got them in the skinny guy and had to size up. i'd recommend trying some of the skinny guy's with stretch like indigo power stretch, black power stretch or grey stretch.

Ok, I tried on the weird guys and some apc petit standards and they were both waaaay too roomy in the back waist when the thighs and hips were tight. very sad because there were those fade to red weird guys for $120.

i guess my problem with waists on jeans in general isn't the total size but how curvy they're cut in the back/the shape. the waist can be super tight around the front and sides but still gape in the back. :(

you're a female I assume? Those are men's cuts, so that's probably the problem. Have you tried any womens cuts? Skull Lindas, 3sixteen 1099bsp?

@Muscat_gummy - I'd suggest you look for jeans with stretch indigo in them, it'll form around your body shape a lot better than the non-stretch raws.

We snapped a couple of pictures this morning of some Donna 003 high waisted jeans with about a month in a half of actual wear on them her at the workshop. Its a Cone Mills 12oz, 2% stretch non-selvedge Cone mills denim. We make them here at our workshop so if your in the Southern California area swing by to get sized up or please feel free to ask us if you need help sizing.

she cant fit the womens cuts because she needs 11.5" thighs. im guessing youre athletic? or just curvy lol

Yep i lift weights.

men's denim also seems to have options in the cheaper price range, and I didn't want to drop more than $150 on a pair of jeans if they're only going to fit so-so. i also can't really find any to try on. already got the folks at the local barney's to agree to give me a call if they get in any women's raw jeans, but nothing at the moment

muscat_gummy you could try asking about variation in cut. I have a similar man-problem with my natural physique. Never bought anything from Kiya but Gordon is pretty damn cool about checking the thigh variation of his inventory for me, and I'm sure Kiya would be just as willing to help with it.

A bit of a cross post here from the home made thread... I hope people don't mind.

I made these for my wife using a stretch pattern I traced off of a pair of her favorite jeans.

I just bought my girlfriend a pair of SugarCane 1947s. They are a size 29 with an unhemmed inseam. They are her first pair of raw denim, and she loves them. She tried on a pair of Nudies as well, but the SC just looked the best.

Close up shot of the womens Viper 002 brown denim. 100% cotton non-stretch raw non-selvedge. They still have all the Railcar details such as chain stitch bottom hem, continuous tucked waistband chain stitching, "r" fly stitching, washer riveting, raw leather burn brand patch, ect.... These pictures seems to look true to color. Great unique color denim. We made our last run on them so we will not be producing these any more. Available on our site for only 159USD.

I think you got it backwards. Most of the 'guys' here look like girls and that's skewed your bodily images

jk brah you're completely right, most of the guys here just escaped from a concentration camp.
