———————————————————————————-

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

Wallys look great there, I always forget how good they are. Must wear more often.

I'm gonna try LVC shrink-to-fit; how many sizes should I size up on the waist? Normally a 32, so should I take a 33 or 34?

An inch so a 33. A good 2-3 inches leg-wise.

Yes, good use of sarcasm there, but just thought as its a denim thread and its a denim item i'd post it up just in-case somebody is interested, thats all…

I'm after slim fitting but not super spray on skinny.

Acne Max Cash or Ace Cash?

Cheers.

Ace is more skinny than Max, so if you're looking for slim better to go with the Max model

Petit standard's I'm currently wearing are a little too tight in the thighs so will prob avoid Ace's then. Cheers.
