———————————————————————————-

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

Not bought raws for ages. I have some new cures which I had tapered and they fit good but I hate the tiny pockets on them, can't get my hand in.

So what else is out there? slim fitting raw denim?

the pbj look cool, what's the deal with sizing? I'm like 33 or 34 in APC New cure, 33/32 in dior.

Dee has a pair so could help you better than me. Apparently they run true. I'm a true w34 and was told to order a w34. The 14oz are slightly roomier than the 18oz too I've heard. They're my next pair I think.
Denimio or Okayama Denim look to be your best bet.

pbj's are the best raws I've had for fit off the peg, indigo breaks quickly too. Probs stick with them for next few pairs.

What's the deal with the one-washed PJB models that Denimio sell?

Are they literally just given an initial wash to get rid of shrinkage, so basically the hard work is done for you? Or are they a treated finish to give a worn/washed look to them?
