———————————————————————————-

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

Don't get on with PNS rural, the rise is too low for me Sad

What's the rise like on the COS pair please?

how do the black cos jeans go up against washing? do they keep the colour or will they fade as strong as the acne cash jeans?

Just received the OL first cut raws in black. Fit is shocking, waist is tiny but way too much room in the thighs and no taper.

Thinking of ordering a pair of APC rescue and getting them tapered quite heavily (as ive got to get them shortened anyway). Was wondering what the opinion is on this? will they look a bit stupid when tapered as they are meant to be quite a relaxed fit.
