———————————————————————————-

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

With a very low spin, or no spin at all. You don't want any unsightly creases!

Looking for some slim black denim for £100 max. Considering Acne Max Cash, but had these before and fancy something different. Any others around?

Ace are slimmer/narrower at the hem.

Cheers Shame, I've just been looking at the Ace Cash instead of the Max. There was a pair on TBS yesterday which went pretty quickly.

I know I've mentioned them before but that was before I had them, for anyone looking for decent Japanese denim in a cut that suits a bigger thigh but still with a good taper then definitely check out the UES 400T if you're near RnH. I was lucky and got them from ebay but would have happily paid full whack for them. My last waywt didn't show the fit too well so here's another one.



Will stop going on about them now.

I'm shit at the whole raw thing. What's the best process?

Stick them in the hot tub for an hour then let them drip dry? The leg and hem could definitely lose a bit but would quite like to keep the seat and waist around where it is now (would probably stretch if I just wore them as is).

Should I stick em on when they've dried a bit to stop the seat and waist shrinking too much?

Sorry I know this will have been asked a million times, but the search function is (still) a bit shite

Are they sanforized? If not then they shouldn't lose too much in the waist but if you're scared they lose more than an inch (which will stretch back out anyways) then i would stick them on when they've dried a bit.

The hotter the water, the more shrinkage you should get so bare that in mind.

They're not sanforized, no.

Does the shrinking occur in the water or when they dry?

cheers people

Should be about right. APC is vanity sized to about the same level as Edwin, although the APCs stretch out more.

31 in Edwin if you like a snug fit from the outset, 32 if you don't want to put too much stretching in.

The ones to watch from Edwin are the ED-47s, some of those come in over and others a little under label size. Hard to get right without trying them on in person.

Anyone ever had a pair of Big John's? Look to be about the 'cheapest' Japanese jeans you can get and they look alright.

The ed80's fit smaller than the ed55s.
I'm a 32w in trousers/ suit trousers, wear a 31 in ed55's but backed a pair of ed80's in a 31 -though they were washed, not raw…

Anyone got any experience of NN07 denim? Quality up to much?

If anyone has any info on the 'Peter' model, sizing in particular, it would be appreciated

Thanks

It's been a while since I've bought Edwins (now I'm the winner of the fuk comp)

What's the fit (or differences) like on ED-55 or ED-80? Still size down two?
I'm into APC PNS now and I force myself into a 30 for the stretch.
