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

Same old Tenderloin T-riders, worn from raw. Hems have been repaired, crotch has blown and been repaired, pocket bag ripped and the knee's about to go again, so there'll be another patch added just above the one that's already on there. Just going to keep on hammering them.

I'm looking at Orslow for washed denim (105 2 year wash), anything else I should be checking out at that price range? Tenderloin looks cool but its pretty nonexistent online.

Sweet haven't had any new Japanese jeans in ages. What do people recommend since I been out the game, going to get something slim and mid-weight.

Want something decently slubby too, never had any Sammys so might cop

Could try the Samurai 710, but in the 16oz organic cotton if you want mid-weight?

Don't seem to have them on Denimio though but not badly priced if you proxy from Rakuten:

Yeah love my black s710's but 17oz is too much for me so they only get wear when it's cold. I need to wear them more to get rid of the stiffness as well

Will have a look - I seem to remember Skulls aren't as good quality / denim isn't as nice as Samurai - that true?

Oni's nice and slubby. also PBJs slubby too, but low weight. They actually feel heavier than they are

I think Stevenson Overall Co do a good slim fit. I have the 727 and the quality of the denim is excellent.

Cheers Cracka - not wild on those Stevenson though.

Have had PBJs, love the feel but the cuts aren't amazing and I'd like to go for something else.

May try a pair of Onis - these look like they'd fit the bill at a fairly low weight then might cop some heavier Sammys too later on https://www.denimio.com/oni-oni517-14oz-selvedge-denim-tight-fit-straight.html

(also mad cheap! I know the Yen is weak against the £ these days but these prices are amazing)
