———————————————————————————-

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

Have Uniqlo stopped doing the Japanese Denim range? Had a look other day and couldn't see it stocked. Shame, since it's rare to get nicely fitting jeans of that quality for so cheap.

Ignore me, I must be a thick cunt.

Although, I see they've bumped the price up a bit since my last purchase.

Been wearing my Naked and Famous Skinny Guys for 3 months now, but how close am I to getting crotch blowout? And if I'm close, how can I prevent it? Photo is of the area where the legs meet

If you hold it up to the light can you see through it ? If yes than its pretty close to blowing. Can either get it patched or send it to someone like the denim doctor. Looks quite small though.

If you or your gf/wife/mum/gran whoever has some sowing machine skills they could just reinforce them with some stitches across the area either with or without a little extra patch of denim.

A denim patch could be quite heavy.

The Denim Dr uses shirt cloth which wouldn't wear as hard as denim but won't feel like you've stuck a flier down your pants.

(Unless you want to use denim then I respect your personal choice to do this …. Eye-wink )

Either way - it's an easy job.

Petit standards APC, true size or size down 1? I've seen a majority say size down 1 but a lot of the sites say true to size
