Does anyoneknow of any places that stock pace jeans in London?


They have em on caliroots, but i'd like to try before i buy.


Liking those. Looking for some black jeans now myself so looking for ideas. Want some slimmer fit jeans (Not skinny!) and the Nudie Even Steven look about right but not sure if they do them in a black. anybody know? or can people recommend some jeans similar?

Nope, im strapped for cash right now, won't be able to buy them for a few more weeks.

The nudie website has their collection up, no solid black though.

hmm… i tried on a pair of 19cm in 32 the other day, the fit like a fit ass mofo(im a sporty guy, so i have big legs)… but the store i went to didnt have 21cm's for me to try.. would the 19cm stretch enough to make them lose around the legs(thighs,knee,calfs)…?

Do raw Dior’s shrink down to anything approaching their tagged size after the first wash?

I’ve been offered a pair of 19cm MIJ at a really good price, but they’re currently much too big in the waist (tagged as a 29 but measure 31).

I assumed that they were unsanforised, but the thread on SF is full of masochistic Americans sizing down so much that they can’t even button them all the way up when new, so I’m a bit unsure whether they will actually shrink-to-fit or not…

I like them.

They are quite stiff.

I'm not going to wash them.

I would imagine even true jeans in 29 would actually measure about 31. I have raw in 29 and I would say they fit fairly true. They do stretch out a bit but then you don't want them tight do you.

has anyone tried shrinking the waist on nudies back down?

thinking of running a hot bath and hanging them over the side with just the waistband dipped in.

Just chilling watching CL tonight so thought I'd do a few pics seeing as I washed my skulls yesterday.

I used auto levels in ps and they look pretty accurate to how the are irl:




Going to wash them whenever they need it now - fit is back to how it should be after a 50 degree cycle and tumble drying.
