———————————————————————————-

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…

Could anyone recommend some low or low-ish rise black jeans?

Slim or regular tapered, preferably raw/unwashed and definitely without stretch.

Not apc or naked and famous. Around £70-120 or something quite easy to pick up 2nd hand?

Cheers for any help

thanks was just comparing on end and they seem to size similar to the ed80 rainbow raws

Do they stretch and shrink back on washes?

Do OrSlow do the 107 raw? I can only see 1 wash, I'm mainly for rinsing or washing raw denim anyway but just interested.

Pretty sure it is just one washed. Just to get all the shrink out
