———————————————————————————-

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

I've a pair of these April 77s in a 27w you could have for postage toin, if they'd be any use? They're in alright condition. Crotch is a bit worn an will probably need repaired soonish.

think it's finally time to wash my APC's - does anyone know whether they're pre-shrunk, or will I have to do this step too.
will be following this guide: http://www.oki-ni.com/features/raw-denim-care-guide

I'm guessing this will do the job?

They are sanforized. Will just go back to how they originally fit, but will soon stretch out again with wear

What's the current consensus on hemming? Just got some new 3sixteens and had them hemmed 2 inches, feel like the stacks look a bit dated - is showing a bit of sock the done thing now?
