———————————————————————————-

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

Yes i've got them. Really nice neppy denim and good tapered fit that accommodates squatting. Definitely different to your average jeans, iv'e been told they look like joggers by one person

They look good mate, worth the dough? are OP spot on with their sizing?

The sizing on End is more accurate I think. Pretty certain the hem was bigger than 7 on my size 3, Ive had them tapered tho so so cant confirm….

the jeans or the sizing? end have the hem as 7.5, OP have it as 7, and the wait and rise measurements are different too. Ive got the size 3s and waist flat is 18, thigh is 12, rise is 10.75 and hem when i got them was around 7.5 if that helps at all…..

Interesting vid Pad, although if I hear the any more corporate mouthpieces rattle on about "sustainability" for brownie points I'll be Sick!

I can only see a pair of 105 on End while those on OiPolloi are 107. The former should be a more regular fitting denim while the latter is the slimmer one. Really like the washed pair of the 107 on OiPolloi.

Was buying some tshirts on Uniqlo and came across their selvedge denim. Looks OK for the cash and was going to try them. Anyone any experience of them? What is the sizing/shrinkage like?

Cheers.

Might be a stupid question. Been wearing my APC's for about 2 years now (had 2 soaks with woolite). Kinda want them to fade and go a lighter shade of blue now all over. Is it best to just soak them again without woolite or put them in the machine on a cold wash?
