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

easy. 'grats to her i say, the cunt.

Any more suggestions here? Spent all day trying on jeans that were too small around the thighs…

Need the waist taken in on a couple of pairs of jeans, not by a huge amount just an inch or so. Could a local tailor do that easy enough or would I be better sending them off to the Doctor?

Glad to see I'm not the only one who hates Rita. She has an entire collection coming out from Adidas Roll Eyes

After some ed 55 rainbow selvage, just bought a washed pair of ed 55 in a 28 and they fit bang on. All selvage stretches by a couple of inches right, do I'd need a 26 waist Sad any equivalent style unwashed denim in a 28 that doesn't stretch much.
