Importing a pair blind

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys

 

So I have decided to take the plunge on some raw jeans. Dead keen to try this. The issue is, there is next to nothing available locally, some G-Star if I hunt around, and Levi's.
 

I was first drawn in after stumbling on some Nudies. And after some hunting around, I had settled on the Naked and Famous weird guys.

 

I see they're not held in such high regard here? My biggest constraint is budget. We have a 50% import duty on clothing here in South Africa, not to mention the bloody exchange rate. So Flathead etc is out of the question.

 

I am slightly worried about fit, I am a biggish fellow (5'11, 205lb, not a fatty) but am looking for a slim fit. I currently mainly wear a local brand of skinnies that I size up from a 34 to a 36 to get the fit I need.

 

Any suggestions for something like that? Don't want it to be any more skinny than it is there.. And advice otherwise?

 

Thanks all!

Mike

Nudie Grim Tim/Thin Finn should be good. Thin Finn is skinnier than Grim Tim. Don't buy G-star raw jeans if you want some fading. Grim Tims should be good if you've got big gym thighs, same with slim jim. 

 

Don't know anything about N&F, very rare brand from where I'm from. Good luck nonetheless
