———————————————————————————-

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

who Rivet & Hide recommended to me and have done a good job

Has anyone recently had a crotch repair done and can comment on price/quality, not convinced by the example on their Insta. Any other suggestions for London area? Usually use Denim Doctor, but ends up costing a fair amount with postage for a small amount of work.

Give this guy a ring he's in East Dulwich/Peckham area —> https://www.instagram.com/field_denim_workshop/?hl=en

Just got my jeans back from Field Denim. Really pleased with the work and a good price too. Nice bloke who runs it, overall experience preferable imo to DD.
