———————————————————————————-

Acne - fit true to size

APC New Standards -size down 2 or even 3 from true waist size

APC New Cures - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

April 77 - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

Dior raw 19s and 21s - have vanity sizing and are labelled as two sizes smaller than actual size

Edwin Nashvilles - size down 1" - quite a different fit to most jeans out there though (massive rise, loose at thigh and comparitively tapered at the leg).

Julian Red - fit small, so maybe true to size on raw and possibly size up on non raws

Nudies - size down 1 or 2

Raf by Raf - true

Ring - true

Anybody tried or own Acne "Jones" jeans? Just wanna know if they're true to size or if I could size down 1. Past seasons jeans have fit big so that's what I'm hoping

Natural Selection jeans - anyone know whether they're generally true to size? Particularly this pair:

I let stuff like that dry, and then get a stiff (no homo) brush and gently brush it off. Not too hard though of you'll take the indigo off.

Gets a lot of debate, but is LVC sizing random or is it possible to work out the actual waist compared to tagged for particular styles? Considering one of these two:

The Pre-washed 505's I got off Porter fitted about 2 inches smaller in the waist than tagged size.

rub tomato sauce into the rest of the denim so it shows up less

Can anyone recommend some decent raw denim that has a decent rise on them and taper? Just can't get on with these tiny APC style rises crushing my junk.
