Looks like Reggieshop is shut, but don't have my size listed anyway.

These guys have always been good to deal with, have always marked down and prices come in nicely under U.K. rrp

Anyone find that Orslow denim shrinks a little when washed (talking about the one wash)? Looking at moving on a pair of 105s but wonder if they might fit better after a wash?

Also got a pair of Orslow Slim Fit Fatigue pants in a size 4 (colour green) if anyone is looking for a pair. Have to get some photos done…

My 107 haven't shrunk in 5x washes, they stretch out more if anything.
Sizing charts on UK and US sites have sizing wrong. They say Size 3=32, but it's definitely Size 2=32 etc, I bet a Size 3 would fit you great.

Thanks for the reply mate. Yeah I bought me some 107s in a size 3 and they fit perfect. I might keep the size4 107 as they fit too but obviously a looser fit. The 105 size 4 feel a bit loose everywhere. Reckon they need to go.

They don’t have a great amount of stock in store compared to the website

Phone ahead before visiting Oi Polloi, only had a handful of items downstairs a few weeks ago.

How much does the one-wash denim stretch? Size I would usually go for was a bit big in the waist, size down felt a bit tight in waist.

Not had much stretch in mine. What size you going for mate? I've got a pair of 105 and 107 one wash for sale. Brand new without tags. Both size 4.

Thanks, I saw those but think a size 3 in the 105 might be what I need.

No worries mate. You get the fit right and they're one of the best cuts i've worn. Love the 107 too. Got the one wash and the black ones.

anyone owned any rigid jeans? Heard they are quite hard to fade and hold colour for a while.

Need a bit of sizing advice on some 107s.
I normally wear a 32 in APC denim but want an upgrade.
I’m a 33-34 waist and 6ft 2”

Should I be going for a size 3 or 4

Thanks for any help

I'm 6 2 and have three of their trousers in a size 5. I'm a 36 and they seem to fit dead on for me. If you are between sizes I would go for a 4. Bureau has the best price on them at the moment, but Kafkas patron rate is also pretty good.

You’ll want a 3, those measure 33 and stretch.
I’m a 32 and wear a 2.

I have both sizes in the 107. If you need actual measurements I can do that for you mate. I'm a 33 waist and went with the size 3 in the end. Have a pair of 107s that I can get away with but they're looser in the seat area. May move them on because of that. Let me know if you need the size 4 and i'll do them for 125 euros shipped (One Wash model, worn 3 times).

I'm a 30 in APC NS and 31 in PS, because of the slightly slimmer thigh\leg and wear a 3 in Orslow 107. I'm 5.9.

3 is a bit roomy waist wise on me, really just a bit, but perfect leg wise, and i've got quite bit thighs. If you're between sizes definitely size up.
