Hey Friends, Following the success of our Ichiban launch last year, we’ve been working with Naked & Famous on a few new exclusive denims for the Massdrop community. Where the Ichiban is a great jean to get if you’re an aspiring Raw Denim enthusiast, it’s still 100% cotton (none of the stretch comfort that most have become accustomed to) and heavy by mainstream standards at 13.75oz. Feedback from those who purchased the Ichiban and took part in the discussion pulled in two opposite directions. One group of enthusiasts wanted us to go deeper; heavier fabrics, more adventurous. Another group of enthusiasts wanted a casual, lighter denim for summer, which would also make a great gift for friends or family members to start their enthusiast journey. The Karui is 10.5oz raw denim with 2% Elastane. The result is a denim which is lighter and more immediately comfortable than any raw denim we’ve offered, but still retains much of the desirable fade potential through rope dying. We’re excited to offer this to the community with a ship date just in time for summer. Thanks for your interest in this drop and I’ll see about posting some fade pictures soon (nothing dramatic, we’ve only had this sample for a couple months, but these are showing all the right signs for rich fades after a few months of use).

Although Naked & Massdrop sounds a bit risque. And weird. Maybe it'll become it's own thing. Meme anyone?
LoL!
Does anyone want to trade a 34 for a 36? I guess I should have listened when the size guide said a 36 had a 37.5" waist.
so judging by everyone's size trade requests, the recommending sizing is completely off? so dont go 2 sizes down? go TTS?
Exchange: Got a size 30 that are too tight around the thighs. Tags still on, only wore for a few minutes to try the fit. Anyone willing to trade a 31 or 32, or buy it off me?
Just got a size 28 that are too small (tags still on it).  Looking to trade for a size 29/30 or sell.
Is it possible to get a smaller inseam? Like 32?
I have a pair of these in size 33 from the last drop, never worn or even tried on. Looking to trade for size 36 or sell.
What's the deal with Selvedge jeans now a days? By the way Uniqlo has selvedge jeans for thirty nine ninety nine.
So how many of you get these jeans hemmed? 34.5 inch inseam is 4.5 inches longer than my regular inseam. What do any of you folks recommend?
how do you make these worth owning? honestly ive grabbed selvege from Uniqlo for $30 made in cambodian slave factories with better fit results but Naked and Famous’s Canadian slave labour is jacked up and they made me feel fat. I want to give them a chance but rn this paper feels like cardboard.

Mr. Madison, what you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
I have a pair of size 30 that are much too large, should have gone with 28 or 29. Tried on once, tags still on. Message me if you're interested. Not looking to trade, just sell.
Thanks to Massdrop for exchanging my original size 34 for size 36!!!!!
I followed the sizing chart, and ordered size 34, since I normally wear size 36. They fit, but they were way tighter than I like, so I contacted MD. It took a few days, but they eventually responded by telling me they were sending the new pair immediately, and also included pre-paid postage for the return pair too!
I should note I only removed the 34s from the bag and tried them on - I did not remove any tags or labels and told MD this when I contacted them.
I was very impressed that MD sent out the new pair before I had even mailed the return in.
The size 36 arrived yesterday and I love the fit so much better.
I have heard many complaints about MD, but honestly, other than one canceled deal, and a delivery of a knife with the not advertised steel (which MD did a great job compensating for), I have had really great experiences here. Sure, I do my research, and sometimes I end up buying an item I found here, elsewhere, but what I truly respect is that MD will even let you post that in the comments.
Thanks again MD for turning a disappointing $100 purchase into a really satisfying, first time Selvage, experience!!!!

Sounds like a great pair of jeans. Might have to pull the trigger on this one. Size 36 for me too.
Adicus
Better service than what I got when I ordered a pair of N&F weird guys from their website. I had the exact same thing but mine were too large. Good job Massdrop!
Hi all! I've got a pair of size 32 that are slightly too large and I'd like to trade for size 31. Opened them and took the tags off, but that's it.
Lingering
Hey i have a size 31 that i am trying to trade for a size 32!
One more reference for sizing: my waist measures 36-37 and I have big thighs. I ordered size 32 and the waist and thigh fit is very tight at first but probably perfect after a week (but I like close fitting jeans). Fit is pretty much exactly the same with popular Nordic jeans brands like Tiger Jeans; Weird guy fit is just bit less tapered, I’d personally like my hem a bit narrower. 2 % elastane has less effect than the same amount on some of my other jeans. A positive experience so far, I’ll definitely consider ordering other NF drops.
These are definitely not vanity sized. Ordered size 32 and they are tighter than my Everlane, Bonobos and JCrew denim (all size 32 waist.) When they stretch a bit they will fit great.
Are the measurements in inche unit ?
itamar.schacham
Yes
Received them earlier than expected, they look and feel great. I am a 36 in Levi's and the 36 NF fits perfectly. My first buy but not my last.
So amazingly tired of the weird guy cut being the only offering. We need different cuts for different body types, not more of the same thing. C'mon Massdrop!
First, I want to say thanks for the Drop! My order was supposed to start shipping June 29th and they arrived today. With all the comments on sizing I was nervous to say the least. I just measured my waist and I am at 35.5". ( I measured at 36" when I ordered from the drop) I ordered the size 34. When I just tried them on they fit great with about a 1/2 in of slack. So I would say that my size 34 jeans measured out at 36 " waistband. They look and feel great! If I could get away with wearing jeans at work, I'd be wearing them the rest of the day.

AT, Glad to hear the sizing worked for you. I unfortunately am a bit disappointed. I am normally a size 36, so following the chart I ordered size 34. I can fit in the jeans . . . and maybe this is just me, but they are a bit tighter than I would like. If I order again, I will definitely order 36. That being said, let me also say I do normally prefer looser fitting jeans, so If you are wanting tighter, then follow the chart sizing.
This was my first Selvage denim jean purchase, and I do really like the feel of the lighter weight Karui. My girlfriend didn't think they were too tight, but she is also much more forgiving to the mushroom top experience than I. Thankfully ;-)
If there is anyone who ordered 36 and found them too large, and would like to swap them for 34, please let me know.
Thanks! (6 ft, large frame, around 208 lbs - for reference)
Ordered "weird guy" chart sizes 32 & 33 and these guys are not true to size by any "stretch". Looking to see at cost -15% or trade for two each chart size 34s or 36s, or one of each. I'm in the USA.

Thanks, saved, so you can delete this. Rather keep stuff out of public view.

John, If you still l need to get rid of the 33's send me an email at Edited
I'll take them off your hands , thanks!
I am wearing mine and these are definitely significantly more comfortable right from the first wear due to their lighter weight and slight stretch. Supercomfortable compared to the other NF denim from Massdrop. They just feel good without having to wear them in.
Welp I’ve got a size 31 for sale/trade I’m looking for a size 32. They really should tell us to size up. The waist size in these are really inaccurate

I have a size 32 I'd like to trade for your 31! Is it still available?
Lingering
Of course. That would be great!
Have a brand new unopened pair size 33 for sale/trade for 36.
MDW55
What is the waist measurement on your size 33s? It seems some of these are coming out smaller in the waist than the size chart would indicate.
Hello, I purchased size 31" waist and it looks like I need at least 32" - maybe more if they're going to shrink.... So, I have a pair of 31" for sale or trade. Location Australia..... Thank you.

I'm in the Sunshine Caost. How about cost price less 10%? Thank you.
dacampbell
Dang, too far and too much for the risk of ill-fitting jeans. Thanks though :)
Shot in the dark but I bought a pair of 36. Not able to get them on without sacrificing my future ability to have offspring. I'm looking to trade up to a 38. Located in Korea if that helps. Sad, really like these jeans but really underestimated the sizing.

Edited (never mind, the overlapping drop dates, shipping dates had me prematurely excited about early shipping) Thank you for the clarification.
@Alfatrooper this update was for members who joined the drop in March. If you joined the drop in April (or the current live drop) your estimated ship date is June 29. You will get a shipping notification as soon as is ships!
Just received mine. Unfortunately the sizing chart didn't really match my expectations. I ordered a size 29 looking for a 31in waist, but this doesn't come close to fitting.

Yeah same here. Seems like they are true to size. size 30 = 30". Not 32" like the fit guide.
So everyone probably ordered small thinking they would be larger. @Will can you review the feedback here on the sizing? Seems like a lot of folks are having fit issues.
twoscomplement
exactly the same issue here. WTF do I do now that I have $200 worth of jeans that do not fit?
Just recieved mine and unfortunately they do not fit. I ordered the size 30 thinking the waist would be 32inches but it measures exactly 30. So if anyone needs to swap sizes I’m available!
Was excited when they said it would start shipping early.. Now frustrated that my online shopper's OCD has kicked in and obsessively looking for a shipment notification. I have a pair of N&F in the same size and cut that I had picked up second hand. They had been washed and shrunk up a bit so looking forward to see how these look and feel in their natural raw state.
Just received mine. I love the denim, perfect summer weight and the ever so slight stretch is very comfortable from the first wearing. I will say that compared to my other N&F jeans this pair has a slightly more generous cut. For $99 I'm extremely impressed with the fabric and the fit and finish.

Does it get loose and break after you wear it a while? I ordered my Ichiban in size 34 but it is slightly tight on my waist and crotch. I think for Karui I will order 36 instead. Appreciate your reply and input. Thank you sir!
hisham.mohamad
It does loosen up a bit after you wear it but not as much as Levis, for my body they are the best fitting jeans I've found. Good luck!
