———————————————————————————-

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

They come in a 32" leg, didn't realise you were snaye's height. Being too skinny isn't really an issue unless they're worse than April 77s.

I always found they stretch out too much. They do hold their colour pretty well tho

Are there any recommendations for CK jeans? I see their skinnies are 100% cotton which I like but not sure if I want to drop £90 on them.

Do any of the London denim stores (Rivet & Hide etc) have a darning machine?

Rivet & Hide use this place which is just round the corner from them. Hard a few pairs done and they done a good job.

Is the Denim Doc still king for leg tapering etc? Or is there a better/cheaper alternative?

I've stopped using him, any decent local alteration place will be able to taper from the inside seam and do a good job of it.

They'll be able to do it but not chainstitch the hems properly. I don't use the Denim Dr as his hemming isn't done on a Union Special.
