———————————————————————————-

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

That's why Visvim Mies are so popular on here, the buttons falling off adds the vibe of it. Ubercool

makes sense then my f380 and f310 are polycotton and matb's 3001 are 100% cotton…

They've been washed twice since i've owned them, so every few months.

I emailed Rivet & Hide and they said the same thing about 3001s being 100% cotton thread and F301s being poly cotton, I wish I'd known that before.

I did take them off the hangers one time and stack them on the table to the ceiling, but they kept tipping over and falling down, and were always in the way when i eat my fray bentos tinned pies, then i laid them all on the floor but couldnt walk in the room or hoover.
Where would you put them, back garden laid out.

I stack mine but then I dont have 35 pairs. I never understand hanging jeans, I also hate it when people hang their knitwear. Shirts, jackets and some trousers, rest gets folded. Thems the rules.

Oh I know it does them no harm unlike knitwear, its just a pet hate of mine. Like when people fold t shirts down the middle.

Got some Japan blue JB0401 raws in a size 32. Broken in nicely but still pretty rigid and lovely shape. Fit true maybe 0.5" smaller. Lovely fades starting. Would only be looking for £70 shipped if anyone's interested. Give me a pm.

Just received an LVC sawtooth shirt. Fit is pretty much spot on but because its raw denim, its like wearing a shapeless sack at the min. Anything I can do to bed it in a little? Hot soak?

Just damp it down a little with a spray bottle or something and then wear it round the house.
