Anybody got any experience of Kill City jeans? Seen these http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/invt/5222424820001&bklist;=icat,4,shop,mens,mdenim and wondered if they were any good. Want something in black in similar cut to the skinny(ish) levis blue star I have that don't cost the earth. Thought about nudie slim jims but people have commented that they stretch a lot, which I don't want

Are the dior claw marks only 17cm? Do they do 19cm claw marks?

Damn, reckon i would be a 29 then, as you size down in dior clawmarks right? So that's gonna be 17cm. Hmmm, wonder if thats too small, will they stretch to 19cm?

I'm thinking of getting a pair of these-

http://www.cultizm.com/shop/product_info.php?info=p80_Levi-acute-s-reg–BIG-E-1967-505xx-JEANS-DRY-GOODS-LVC.html

I find a bit confusing that one of the tags states they are preshrunk while another says that they are unwashed and so will have a high rate of shrinkage! Does anyone have a pair and know how much they shrink after washing then?

Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

I have a pair of Dry Goods 1955 501s and they aren't pre-shrunk so I guess the same applies with these.
