———————————————————————————-

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

the guy at RIvet and Hide does really good crotch repair work too

use them for everthing now, better than both Denim Doctor and Son of a Stag imo

Couldn't swear to the reinforcing, pretty sure they patched and darned them as the denim doc would, but if rivet and hide do it too then might be worth going there (price dependent)

What other brands out there do a similar cut to the petit standard? Not raw jeans but already washed, cba with breaking in raw denim any more. Are ed55 the same?

Denim jacket with a longer body?

Doesn't have to be anything fancy, merely tired of every trucker and whatnot fitting like a croptop on me. Most of the time it barely clears the navel regardless of the size.

Think it's been discussed before but can't find it now, anyone ordered from Okayama denim? http://www.okayamadenim.com looking at pure blue for some mid weight slim tapered but not skinny, any recommendations?
Thanks

anyone recommend some washed slim fit jeans that have a slight stretch to them? Had the tapered COS ones, which were perfect, but they seem to not be selling washed denim this season. Cheers.

Spoke to the guys at Rivet and Hide and they said they don't do repairs but send all their repair work to these guys http://www.atelierandrepairs.com/ said they charge around £15.00 for crotch repair. They do Darning by the looks of it https://www.instagram.com/atelierandrepairs/
