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

Very rarely wear jeans. Usually in a suit or flannel trews and a shirt but I could be doing with a pair of jeans that I actually like that fit me. Bit of a gaping hole on my wardrobe. I mean I’ve got about 6 pairs but I only wear them when I can’t be arsed - not because I like them, and it’s all to do with fit. I’ve big thighs, rear and hamstring and a relativity small waist. Also fairly big calves. I want something fairly loose fitting with around an 8 inch leg opening at a 31/32 waist (measuring 16inch ish laid flat). Anyone got any recommendations? I was looking at Real Mccoy 003.. can get them from Superdenim with free delivery and free returns so worth a punt.

Does anyone have any other suggestions? Cost isn’t really an issue. If they fit how I want I’m happy to pay.

UES 400T are good for those with bigger thighs / calves. Available from rivet and hide.

Not a bad shout but taper looks to be a bit more aggressive than what I’m after…
