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

Anyone got some TFH denim? Heard they'd gone under so assuming under new ownership? Wondering if the quality's still there?

I had a pair of F380 must be near over 10 years a go now. Sad if they went under. Some of the best denim I’ve ever seen.

The ones posted look great.

I remember reading somewhere that they had huge debt, somewhere in the region of £10 milli, and had filed for Civil Rehab. So I guess they found a buyer who was willing to take on that amount of debt.

Pretty sure that the founder, Kobayashi, is still on the board though so hopefully they still maintain their super high-quality.

Those d306 you posted are still made in their Pioneer denim which is some of the greatest denim I've ever worn — such wonderful fades.

Cheers to both. Yeah, I've been looking over TFH sufu thread and the fades do look great. Quick-fading apparently.

Orslow 107 one wash, do they stretch out much in the waist with wear?

Yeah, I wash mine fairly regularly in the machine now so try and buy them comfy from new.
Would say about a half inch, maybe a full inch if you go for epic fadez.
