Official thread sponsor: The Denim Doctor. First aid for your old denim.

———————————————————————————-

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

Best place in London for APC denim. Best being price/variety/helpfulness of staff. Usually wear new standards but want to try petit standards on.

Had a pair of APC Petit Standards for around 18 months, size 30. Usually take a 32. Waist has stretched out fine, but the thigh/groin area has always been a bit tight. Want to pick up a new pair with a bit more space and wondering should I go 31 or should I try a 30 in the Petit New Standards? Am I going to notice a lot of difference between a 30 in the Petit compared to the Petit new? Cheers

Size down on x011s if that helps.

Where are people sending their jeans to be tapered, apart from the Denim Doctor?

Looking for a pair of slim jet black jeans that retain their color well. I tried Acne's max stay cash but they were too tight in the thighs. Any suggestions? No budget

Has anyone had trousers, chinos etc hemmed at Son of a Stag? Wasn't sure if it would look weird on their old-time sewing machine.

^^ They send them away for trousers / chino style finishes rather than in-house. Takes about a week but costs the same.
