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

Looking for some raw denim…Petit New Standards are too tight and New Standards are too baggy…any suggestions for something in between?

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

had the same problem - going to go into soho store this weekend and grab a new pair - will likely get PNS will post results.

Can anyone recommend any washed black denim with a mid-high rise please?

Tried the Mastercraft Union ones from Matches but they are too low. Wash is great but just can't get on with themCry

Anyone got a pair of Raleigh denim? Specifically the Jones cut…how slim are they? And do they shrink much?

Anyone got these slim washed jeans from Cos? Do they stretch much? Had the slim black jeans from previous years and found them really stretchy (to the extent I'd actualy need to size down to 28 - not offered in these).

Don't have this season's, but have last season's and wouldn't say they stretch at all.

If anyone's looking for a winter pair, Rivet and Hide (great store) are doing a collab with PBJ. 24oz with X011 denim which is really nice:

24oz is a bit unnecessary

Just grabbed these:

http://www.okayamadenim.com/collections/japan-blue/products/japan-blue-jb0412-slim-tapered?variant=500483105

Quality is somewhere between edwin/apc and my 3Sixteens - proper steal at 95£ if you like chattery texture on your denim

Good range on that site but never wanted to order as they don't offer refunds.

I have those Japan Blues. Great pair of jeans. Fades coming in nicely after 7 months.

Okayama have always given great service
