———————————————————————————-

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

Long story…

Was at the cinema watching the impossible, when during the tsunami scene a woman started having a fit and they were calling out for someone who knew first aid, so I went over to help. Only problem was they were 3 rows in front so had to straddle the seats to get forward. First row I stepped over I heard them rip, it was really, really loud. Fortunately for me it was bloody dark. Oops Laughing out loud She was alright in the end though.

Got a pair of washed LVC 1967 505s, good in the leg but small in the waist. Do they stretch or shrink or what?

Mine were painfully small on the waist at first and unwearable within less than a year due to stretching.

any recommendations for black denim that stays black and is not as thin as acne?

my acne's are too thin for winter and i would prefer if it does not fade with washing. 3 sixteen has some double shadow denim but the cut is awful. budget is limited too. don't want to spend more than 180.

I'm after some RRL jeans but £365 on their website seems a tad excessive. Are they cheaper in store/from us?
