Official thread sponsor: The Denim Doctor. First aid for your old denim.

———————————————————————————-

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

Bill, great find there. I haven't liked any washed jeans for ages but they look absolutely amazing.

I can't find anything on the brand apart from it being called mastercraft union, made in japan. If anyone knows any stockists please PM me. These also look great.





Also, I just washed my APC's, I think its time to retire these as they are literally falling apart.

Any ideas? Closest I've found is some NBHD bits but the price point is too high.

I fancy trying the 21oz Unbranded UB321. Does anyone know where I can get a pair of them in the UK? Or a US proxy? And while I'm at it if anyone had experience of a unbranded sizing I'd appreciate any advice. As usual there's loads of conflicting info out there.

Cheers.

Doesn't look like any UK stockists carry the 321, just the tapered and skinny fits.

some more pics on the site, and some stockists. They're quite expensive, 400-600 euro. Not sure about the back pockets, looks a bit big,
