———————————————————————————-

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

I've used that stuff before. Got some sent free with a pair of Eternals. Can't see it making a huhe amount of a difference. Just use some gentle natural soap flakes or some sort of organic liquid and it should do the job fine.

Go true to size. I.e if you'd normally wear a 32 in most brands, go for a 32 in the 710's.

They pretty much shrink to tagged size.

Went to cop a pair of Cos black denim today but found out that they fit like jeggins on me Sad
I even had to size down on the waist.

I actually tried on a washed black\grey pair, labelled as slim tapered. There was also a non washed black pair, can't remember the cut, which was sold out in my size. Are those any roomier on the calfs\thighs or should i look somewhere else?

Whilst we're on the subject, how is the 710 fit/cut in comparison to APC NS? I've seen the 710 described in a fair few different ways, although I guess that comes from people sizing down/up/going TTS etc.

Are Oi Polloi right re sizing down twice for Ed55 selvedge? 28 really measures a 30?

In my experience, their jeans do fit a lot bigger than tagged size.

I got a pair of the slim/tapered grey ones, size 30/32 and they fit great, was expecting them to be tight as fuck? their just a perfect slim fit!

Ulster they do fit pretty big on the wasit so yeah prob true

Been told they fit big by the dudes at Great Divide.

Got a pair of denim 55 chinos, great fit. Roomy on the thigh with a nice taper.

*Edit I sized up one on the pants

Dunno how you can size down on 55s, they were pretty tight on the the thigh when I got em (burner wash selvedge) thought they were meant to be roomy but I would say apc ns and ps are looser.

I ordered both 28 and 30 in the burner and ended up going true with the 30s, despite oi polloi's advice that the 28s actually measured 30. Thought it might be different with the raws tho.

Ulster the weight of the denim is a significant factor.
They actually all measure two inches bigger than tagged but the thinner denim stretches and flexes more. I think the burner is 14oz. I backed some burners that felt too tight after buying the same size in a different wash that were 11oz and fitted quite comfortably

got a pair of S710xx in a 31 X 32 unsoaked. Worn a couple times. Would love to trade for a 33, or other heavy weight denim. Would consider selling. Give me a message if at all interested.

Ulster are you specifically after raw selvedge?

They def do 11.25oz raws http://wellgosh.com/edwin-ed-55-11-25-oz-blue-unwashed.html

I'm sure I've seen selvedge with lighter than 14oz
