@jimmy326 - pretty similar but more room in the rise/ seat.

Cheers. Was hoping they'd be slimmer.

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.

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

Cheers mate, tho the raws are also 14oz!

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.
