———————————————————————————-

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

Quick question. I'm a 32 in the washed black apc petit standard, should I go for the same size in raws or go down to a 31?

Couple of quick questions/confirmations, please

Are apc jeans sanfonised so no need for soaking?

I'm looking to get the shrinkage out of the way right now rather than in 6+ months, I'm also not that fussed about fades or keeping them ultra-indigo (wouldn't actually mind that pre-washed look). Shall I just bung them in the machine now or hand wash? If so shall I use detergent? Vinegar? woodlice black?


Cheers

Just wear them mate.

Sanforized so shrinkage is basically 0, especially considering they'll always stretch back out to your waist size anyway.

Does Cultizm ever have big sales? The mid season sale right now is kinda weak.

These edwins seem to be sold out everywhere. Any close alternatives out there fit and distress wise? Not interested waiting one or two years for raws to break in..

Can't skate in Chinos, rip far too easily and gettin tired of buying multiple pairs of Dickies. Open too other cheaper Denim options if anyone can recommend (slim/straight fit)
