is it because the denim is stiffer and more coarse than topman denim? my main gripe is the stitching quality is pretty piss poor. I do cycle in mine errry day tho

Anyone confirm that petit standards are not vanity sized anymore?

I take 31s in nudie - was going to go for a 30 in the PS

I think so, one of the guys in Son of a Stag said it's when you don't wash them at all that the crotches blow quickly as it won't have softened as it does when washed.

Not sure if serious - will 30 in a PS definitely be too big if I take a 31 in preshrunk nudies? I'm not looking them to be super slim/skinny but concerned they will end up too big in the waist..

Im a 34 in prewashed nudies and fitted into a pair of well worn 31 Petit Standards. They were proper skinny though and will be making their way to the classifieds soon.

So in answer to your question get a size 29.

I've found that black overdyed petit standards tend to stretch out far less than the indigo versions. Mine also tore at the crotch after one wash, whilst the indigo versions remained intact.

I sized down by two on both versions.

Got a pair of PS from oi polloi the other day, tagged 28 and measured 14 inches (1 side). Still have to size down though due to the stretch.

to switch it up a little.. does anybody know a site where i can check out some of the tips that jean gives on wearing denim? ive heard him talk about "an old rocker trick": rubbing cigarette ashes into yer jeans then rubbing your hands thru yer hair and rubbing yer hair grease over that.. not saying that id actually do this.. i just think itd be an interesting read and maybe some of what he has to say id find useful.

Found the black overdyed proper crap quality. Same issue after one wash, 6 months of wear.

The denim is definitely a lighter weight denim for the over dyed black ps compared to the indigo. I've had my over dyed black ps for a year now, sized down 3 (probably 2 because I'd lost weight around then), pretty much lived in them 24/7 the poor bastards, they've received 3 soaks in woolite and have only recently acquired a slight whole where my wallet goes and some wear where my iPhone resides. The creases don't fade like the indigo denim thank fuck, but I'm not sure what you're all doing with them…you're going wrong somewhere as mine have been through a lot of shit (not literal) and are still going strong. csb.

They say 'Fuck Em' on the back. How am I supposed to wear them without being 12? Laughing out loud
