okay - so I tried on the raw New Standards one size down but they were still well fucking tight.

they only had one pair (in a 31 - i.e one size down), so couldn't try on the true size.

what am I to do??

They will be well tight to start with but they stretch loads. I've just bought a pair in size 29 (I'm a 31" waist) and can barely do the top button up, but the waist will stretch out so that they're comfortable within a day or so and the thighs, crotch etc follow after not too long

What jeans are they, Noble? Fit looks spot on

cheers robii - how much stretch will I get - they were well fruity around the bollocks.

Also, where's the best deal for NS's these days?

Yep, they will be well tight round your balls. My size 30 were over 17" across the waist when I sold them

Don't think anywhere's that cheap for APC. I just bought a pair off eBay for £65 delivered, so that's probably your best bet

How difficult is it to alter the rise on a pair of jeans/trousers? Ive got some Cords that Id like to make the rise smaller by a few CMs and wondered if this was possible.

New here, apologies if its not the done thing but wanted a little advice on jeans please?

It appears I'm out of luck at finding my favourite ever jeans, which were Nudie Super Slim Jim (looks like KIM tho!)

The model number, for reference, is NJ940

Anyway, they're discontinued I think

So, I want some that fit really well, tight without being suffocating, and black/charcoal

I'm 6'1, W32 L34 so pretty slim.

Not really fussed on price, providing it doesnt get silly!

Anyone more learned than me care to suggest anything?
