———————————————————————————-

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

Just purchased the 107's so will post a fit after the weekend
I understand they are not super slim but are quite tapered so may not be what you are looking for
I'm guessing more like an edwin type fit
I think pads also has a pair so he may know

Bought a pair of The Unbranded Brand tapered raws the other day from The Liquour Store in Brum. They're tight as fuck in the waist and crotch area at the moment. I've been living in a washed pair of soft and comfortable low-rise LVC's for a couple of years now so they feel super tight. I'm pretty sure they'll stretch and the guys in store said the same, but are they comparable to APC's in that sense?

Seem very decent for the price too, much better than Gap Selvedge or Uniqlo for a cheap pair of selvedge. I missed out on a pair of Flathead K0011's on Ebay not long ago for a a oner which I really wanted (anyone on here get them?) so thought I'd give these a go.

107's aren't a true slim fit IMO
They taper fairly heavily but not like my Edwin's
The thighs are more of a comfort fit so overall they look and feel to me like a more casual / 501 type affair.
I sized at a 3 though for a 32 waist and i think I may well have been able to size down to make them fit slimmer.
The denim though is incredible as is the construction

Cheers. Ends April the 1st. Going to keep these in my rotation for at least another year I reckon. Got some UES I wanna go hard in but 15oz denim just feels a bit meh after 25oz for nearly 2 years.
What IH's did you get? Interested to see how you get on with their 21oz. They put anti fade on that denim.

I don't know exactly what it is but the owner of IH doesn't like High contrast fades he prefers vintage style fading. So the flagship denim is treated. They will fade but are slow faders. You are fast fader from what I have seen so interested what results you get
