edwin ed55s, realise they're vanity sized but quick question. i'm a true 34 waist so should i look at getting a 32 or do the selvedge stretch a bit so go with a 31? any help appreciated, cheers guys.

Can anyone recommend some decent denim for me?
I have a pair of APC Rescue which are a perfect fit but they're a bit heavy (14oz I believe) and I'm looking for something a bit lighter in weight. Preferably raw, or failing that a dark wash. I want a straight cut but they have to be roomy in the thigh.
Is Gap selvedge any good? And at 13oz am I likely to notice the difference compared to the Rescues?

Think APCs are around 12oz mate, some of the lightest jeans around

Am thinking of purchasing some new Nudie Grim Tim's from eBay (W30 L30), seller sent me a picture of measuring tape straight across at the top of the waist and clearly shows its just over 15 inches which is the same measurements for my other jeans, but just wanted to get peoples opinion on here before i pull the trigger, so, are they true to size or size down??

You've the exact waist measurement which is the same as the rest of your jeans, why would you be worried? If you're really concerned there's bound to be somewhere stocking Nudies nearby, go and try a pair on, but I reckon they'll be grand.

They fit tts in my experience, shame the quality has gone down and the price has gone up, used to get selvage grim tims for 80 quid or so.

Yeah standard is 14.5, and they also do an 11oz stretch and 13oz in some.

Thanks for the suggestions but those UB301 are slimmer in the thigh than my Rescues so won't fit unfortunately.

Do the unbranded stretch much? I'm a 34 in nudie, will I get away with a 32?

I got them ub201's they stretch a little. Measurements on the site were well off, I bought a 32 based on the site saying the waist was 34 on the 32 and it measured bang on 32 so they're useless to me now. Let me know if they would be any good for you.

Anyone have any experience with Tellason denim? Sizing?

I highly recommend them for price / quality / range of fit / weight.
They don't stretch much, on that basis I would say go true but I did find some variation in sizing (eg two pairs of 32w fitted a little different). Ideally go to Son of a Stag or somewhere with a lot of stock and try them on.
