Welcome to our drop for the Massdrop x Naked & Famous Ichiban Selvage Denim in Easy Guy cut.
This is the same natural indigo, rope dyed, japanese selvage denim from our original Ichiban collaboration, but instead of using N&F’s Weird Guy cut (straight cut, taper from the knee down) we’re using N&F’s Easy Guy cut (roomy through the thighs, taper from the knee down).
Comparing these cuts, most feel the Easy Guy represents a more relaxed fit without crossing the line into “baggy” territory.
In my experience comparing directly (I’ve had pairs of both the Easy Guy and Weird Guy Ichiban in rotation for months) I prefer the Easy Guy, even though the taper is slightly more aggressive (depends on size, but it's either the same or 1/4" less on the leg opening). As someone prone to looking like a carrot in tapered jeans, I was concerned about that with the roomy upper on the Easy Guy cut, but that wasn’t the case.
As a reminder, please study the sizing chart, measure yourself with a relaxed measuring tape, and don’t trust that the 33 on your Zara/H&M/JCrew pants means a real 33, or that you’re a size 33 in N&F. Measure yourself and follow the sizing chart on this drop page for the best results.
We’re excited to offer this great denim in a new cut and we’ll be available for questions here!
