I need a word of advice.
So I copped a pair of Diors from Trystero and I'm really feeling the fit.
I want to get a pair of MIJ's online now.
I don't know what size to get though.

The jeans I got from Trystero are 28's.
Measurements - waist is 15 inches, inseam is 37 (unhemmed) and hem is 19cm.

I don't want them to be too skinny, my legs are like sticks already. Do I need to size up?
Any advice would be much appreciated.

I've asked Browns and the dude didn't know fuck all.

Depends what model/cut etc. you're going for. The ones you got off Trystero are 21cms, so if you like those, I wouldn't recommend you go for 19cms or anything. I reckon just go for 28" again and you should be fine.

you need to remember that raws stretch so size down otherwise after a couple of weeks they will swamp you

Doesn't that mean they're 19cms?
How much do they stretch? I'm not sure about sizing down, wouldn't mind them a bit looser anyway.

On Browns they have 19cm, 19inch and 21inch jeans. What's the difference?

19cm and 21cm are models and dont necessarily correspond to hem measurement (depends on waist size, which also doesn't correspond to the actual waist measurement). clear or what?

Yea I understand. I really appreciate the help and education so far.
At the moment, I'm looking into these?

They're the only 21cms MIJ's I can find at the moment.
Where in Oxford Circus can I try a pair of MIJ 21cm Raws on?
I might have to pull the mission as I'm not sure about stretch.
May have to size down and see what they fit like… Hmmm.

Looking for a new pair of jeans, don't want slim/skinny, prefer straight cuts. Looking at the APC New Standards atm, any other suggestions. Budget less than £100. Sad

Apc ns are pretty slim at least on me. I recommend Lvc 1947 raw. Best cut ever imo and can be picked up for around £75 in the sales.

Whats the difference (if any) between LVC and Levis, I see that when people are posting up they say LVC.
