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

Crackajack, sizing up 1 on the denimio samurai/samurai 710 will give you pretty much the '47 fit IMO. Measurements on the site. Maybe have too much details for your liking though, but great jeans.

I'm after a pair of denim in a 32 but with a 30 leg, fed up of spending money on alterations. Ideally I'm after a loose tapered fit.

I prefer the Livid Jeans Harald or Roald cut. Always having trouble getting jeans to fit because of large thighs from squatting but those cuts work well as they are roomy in the thigh and seat. The Roald has a nice taper

It did the same the other week but was back to normal the day after.

Just checked and it says under maintenance.

Gooner

Anywhere in London / UK stock Livid Jeans, sound great but I need to try before I buy as no jeans seem to fit?

Thanks.

I think there is one, although you can check their site http://www.lividjeans.com/shop/all/. There's measurements for every size and cut on there. Stockists as well

Anywhere do a good repair in London? Somewhere I can get to within 20min from liverpool st. It's a crotch burst and cba posting to manchester if I can get a good job done local.

I've got a pair of Sam 710's in a 33w with that leg length of that's of interest?

Does anyone in London do darning? My usual guy patches but as these are a relatively new pair I'd like something slightly less obvious.

Does anyone know the shrinkage on Levis 501? Size up 1 inch in waist and 3" in leg I've been told?

The shrink to fit, Rob? I'm a true 30/32 and I went 32/34 on my '47s. Could get away with just an inch up in the waist as it'll stretch more if needs be.

I'm not too sure whether to plump for shrink to fit or not, I'm after a loose tapered fit and so don't want them to shrink to fit, especially when I have the strangest body shape in England.

Looking to buy a pair of these APC petit new standards but no stores around me carry them. Can't figure out how to do the sizing and the web is full of contradicting info. Supposedly APC stretches a lot, but I wonder if that also applies to a prewashed version?

Do they all fit the same too? Have only tried one pair of PNS before. But that was a 30 and atleast 2 sizes too loose in the waist and a bit baggy all around. Even though i'm normally a 29/30.

I have always gone 2 sizes down from my Acne Ace size. I wear 32/32 in ace and take 30 in all pns, raws and washed. Stretching is quite similar in both imo.

Size down two for raw APC, but those size down one.

Anyone had experience with Son Of Stag doing a crotch blow out repair? They've always been excellent with hemming and chain stitching. Blew the crotch on my Acne denim and like stelfox would rather just get them sorted in London.

Told my dad to try London Fashion Workshop in Holborn for a crotch repair instead of bothering to send away to denim doc and they seem to have done a very good job.
