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

I've ruined countless pairs of jeans in the last few years and would love to find someone who really knows what they're doing.

Join the club!Laughing out loud

Mate the best you can hope for is Getting denim that comes in 30 or 32 inside leg, preferably 30 inside leg. Only Visvim and Livid denim do those lengths but I have no idea how they fit or the quality of them. I have about 5 pairs of denim (expensive) that I have ruined by getting them taken up and tapered. NO one has been able to create the original finish, tapering. Not denim doctor, Atelier repairs, or anyone else.
