———————————————————————————-

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.

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.

These LVC's have been sat around unworn for about 3 years now, too slim for my taste these days.
I remember getting a lot of compliments/questions about them on here though so if anyone fancies them on the cheap drop me a pm for more info (34x34) - would rather them go to someone on here!

For the price they are probably the best quality jeans I’ve ever had.
Problem is, I’ve had them over a year and still not properly broke them in. So tough. Also hardly any stretch/give in the denim either, meaning I should have probably sized up.

Has anyone tried these Orslow stretch denim jeans?

I find the sizing really small, managed to get a 5 on but way too stiff to move about.
Reckon these stretch ones might be perfect.

They look great, how much are they charging for a pair roughly?

Yeah the 17% off is a great deal for first pair.

If you go to the factory they give you the proper service too. Measurements, leg alterations there and then etc.

Although the changing room is a cupboard Laughing out loud

Zoom, there was a big difference in price between Turkish and Japanese denim.
Turkish comes to about 150 after discount I think.
Japanese about 240 …
could be wrong on those.

But free repairs for life is a bonus.

On a similar note I’ve been really impressed with the hiut denim I have, had them in twice for free repairs and they do a great job on that. the marketing tone grates on me a bit though.
