———————————————————————————-

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

you mean literally an inch, so 31" instead of a 30"
unless the pockets were closer together than usual youll be fine with that

i have some washed vis, think they are 04's, whatever is vis slimist fit - what are my non vis options for washed denim? want the same quality as vis, i.e very soft denim and very washed out look, the likes of LVC etc are too stiff and they arent light enough in colour/washed out enough, cheers

Been looking for something like this for ages, but always come up blank.
Any ideas? Closest I've found is some NBHD bits but the price point is too high.

I got a pair of Warehouse 800 from Blueingreen last week. The denim is amazing but I must admit it will take some getting used to the looser fit.

These were in the Matches newsletter as a new designer, never heard of them but some of the washes look pretty good imo
