———————————————————————————-

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

Thanks Benneli. Think I might just give them a by. Skinnys are a definate no go and i'm not keen on the fit pics of the tapered. It's a bit of a cunt as I've not seen any other cheap 21oz to try.

Really like the washed pair of that new denim brand. Hope they will be cheaper than that though!

Don't they go on about using the finest Italian leather crafters on their video, and then go and put what looks like painted rubber patches on their jeans, bit odd?

^ Good video that, he gets paid a helluva lot by Levis when he finds something for their archives.


Yep another denim kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lawlessdenim/put-americans-to-work-making-heritage-jeans but they have a good selection of fabrics and the guy seems to know what he's doing.

Just been to Selfridges and they had these in. Denim is nice and soft with a bit of stretch. Both cuts (01 slim taper & 02 relaxed taper) seem the have roughly the same in the waist and seat but 01 is a slimmer leg. Both taper down to the same hem width though.

From the label they're limited to 250 for the 01 and 100 pcs for the 02 which might explain the price (400quid & 500quid).
02's had the thighs overstitched which gave them a slightly odd feel & borderline polish builder look.


Quite liked the 01's though.

The wash does look alright, but not £400 - £500's worth imo

Was there thinking i'd maybe proxy a pair but they don't seem to be available in Japan, even though they're made there.
Only Europe & US

Has anyone had a pair of Acne Ace Washed like these before?

https://www.mrporter.com/mens/Clothing/Jeans/Slim_Jeans?soldOutId=408347

Just got a pair of 29s delivered and they are a bit too tight, should I back them or will they stretch? I've got black Ace Cash in 29 and they fit well.

Those MU's look good but never a monkey, especially not with thigh stitching.
