If you're new to raw denim, or are not familiar with Naked & Famous' fits, this is for you.
You'll want to use the "Weird Guy Fit" instead of "Ichiban Selvage" as your reference fit if you need to look up fit comparisons, (it's even better if you could try them on.) Weird Guy Fit is slim from the thigh down with a taper in the lower leg for a really comfortable slim-but-not-skinny cut & is flattering for the lean athletic types. My Weird Guy's are the most comfortable pair of denim I own. Two years running, no crotch blowouts with 3-5 days a week wear, & my fades came out nice enough that I can still wear them as business casual.
Beware lifters - Weird Guy Fit may restrict movement by being too slim in all the areas of the leg, crotch, & butt/glutes areas.
TL;DR The Weird Guy Fit is the most reliable, "Not-spray-paint-on-skinny-But-still-slim-and-flattering" cut.
My body size is 5'10" 160 lbs., I swim regularly, & run a couple 5K's each week. The following should be taken with a grain of salt, as it compares the Weird Guy Fit to two other popular denim fits.
APC - New Standard & Petite New Standard Fit:
New Standards are a skinnier jean in the lower leg & have less room in the seat & waist, though they share Weird Guy Fit's room in the thigh. If you have skinnier legs & no glutes, then these are a decent consideration for fit, but have a spandex-ey "stretch" to them - watch out, (my butt/glutes looks like I'm wearing leggings.) Even with that stretch though, they are very soft & I've actually found them durable because of that.
TL;DR I treat my Petite New Standards as street-wear.
APC New Standards / Petite New Standards don't fit well in business-casual environments unless you're a twig & I'm less likely to wear them on a night out vs. my Weird Guy Fit unless I want to make sure I'm ID'd every single time I walk up to the bar.
Unbranded - Tapered, UB201 Fit:
While the Weird Guy Fit are a great fit for the office, Unbranded's Tapered Fit UB201 is a 14.5 oz. durable Jean that is the ultimate pair of work jeans. While the UB201's & Weird Guy Fit have the same room in the thigh, the UB201's are a heftier pair of pants, they have a larger seat / more room in the crotch, & have less of a tapered bottom leg compared to the Weird Guy Fit. The UB201's also start off much stiffer because of their weight to break-in, which I found great for trips through the great outdoors. Though the Unbranded pair took longer to break-in & aren't as soft, they are MUCH more durable than my Weird Guy's.
TL;DR For those under 6 foot & not leg-day lifters;
Unbranded's break-in process is more uncomfortable due to the higher waist, as they really dug into my hips - you will not find stretch here.
TL;DR For those over 6 foot & bodybuilders;
I still swear on the Weird Guy Fit for taller guys too, but Unbranded has better scaling & SPECIFICALLY has fits for althetes, dedicated lifters, and bodybuilders. Taller guys will have a more comfortable break-in than us shorter folks with Unbranded, but beware the stiffness.
I'd really like to know if this was helpful or not - feedback is always appreciated.
