Acne - fit true to size

APC New Standards -size down 2 or even 3 from true waist size

APC New Cures - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

April 77 - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

Dior raw 19s and 21s - have vanity sizing and are labelled as two sizes smaller than actual size

Edwin Nashvilles - size down 1" - quite a different fit to most jeans out there though (massive rise, loose at thigh and comparitively tapered at the leg).

Julian Red - fit small, so maybe true to size on raw and possibly size up on non raws

Nudies - size down 1 or 2

Raf by Raf - true

Ring - true

Not denim related, closest feed could find linked to it, does anyone know how Stan Ray fatigue trousers fit in the waist? are they true to size, or is it a size up job?

They are supposed to fit big but the ones I had were a full size smaller than labelled, might have just been unlucky though.

More North than East but Blackhorse Lane Ateliers is still open - can drop off in Walthamstow or at Coals Drop Yard:
Cheers for this! I'm based in Homerton so can ride easily up to Walthamstow.

It’s not open is it?

Ffs I’ve been sitting on a gift card for a pair of jeans since Christmas waiting patiently for it to reopen.
Oops Laughing out loud

Ah maybe it's closed at the moment?! I used them for a repair back in November, had to email in advance to arrange a time to drop off. I live round the corner from the workshop and the door's been open with people going in and out fairly often when I've walked past though.

Any alterations place good for taking in waist on jeans or best to go for a proper denim specialist? It’s just a pair of Orslow no too bothered about anything fancy but also don’t want them fucked.

This isn't technically denim but figured a few in here might appreciate it.

12oz Wabash CPO Sample that Iron Heart gave me to wear and trash at work.

I am doing my best to give it some wear

Went to Blackhorse Lane @ coal drops yard to pick up some new jeans the other week.

Really good service as always, had a good chat about the denim, fades etc.
Finished the hems whilst I had some tacos a few doors down.
Can’t fault it to be honest.
