Hello.

I need your advice. This is the first time I'm buying jeans over the internet.

I'm quite short, 5feet 5, maybe 5'6.

I have measured a pair I have and fits me, it says 72 cms/28.3 inches.

My waist size is 28, maybe 29.

So, when I am buying the jeans over the internet, does xx W / xx L mean the following? w is waist size, l is leg length (by inseam ??).

Thank you.

Though I am being very optimistic to find many pairs in size 28 (length), yes?

more chance of finding a pair over the net than down your local high street. You can always get them professionally adjusted by the denim doctor/habidasher.

Laughing out loud Laughing out loud this guy

most jeans are 32-34 leg length, which means you will need to get the hemmed (by a tailor)
you won't find any jeans brand new in size 28 in an adult store.

Sorry for asking about APC sizing I know everyone is probably fed up of answering.

If I am typically a size 32" on Nudies, Levis etc what should I be going for in New Standards?

31" or 30"? Just don't want the legs to be short.

Thanks

Size down two from true waist size. I think all legs are a standard length tho?

Cheers mate. Yeah your right there. Just seen they all have a standard leg length.

I guess I'll go with a 30" then. Thanks

I think you'd have to be a giraffe to have problems with the leg length!

Where in London stocks the best selection Edwin Jeans? Been on Son Of A Stag website but they only have three styles listed. Just wondering if anyone knows of any other shops that have a wide selection.

Son of Stag had a huge selection of Edwins last time I was in there. Probably the biggest anywhere, although Interstate carry a lot I think.

Ignore the Son of a stag website. It's appalling.

Having worked there, and still doing the odd day here and there, I can confirm that Son of a stag have the largest range of Edwins certainly in the UK if not europe.

Not wanting to slag off interstate, but I think they only carry 3-4 models and I don't think any of the treated versions.

A massive range, stacked (literally) from floor to ceiling. You'll get free chainstitching on jeans you buy there if you need any shortening done.

I want a pair of black number (n)ine's.
could anyone give me sizing advice.
I wear a 32, would I need a 3 or a 4?
sizing seems to be all over the place.
cheers.

How do people get their APCs to look good after washes? HW's new standards look great, but mine look shit Sad Hem doesn't sit well on footwear at all.
