———————————————————————————-

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

This has probably been asked on numerous occasions, but best place to post to for alterations which isn't too pricey?

Literally any tailor/dry cleaner will do it, just be specific about what you want (e.g. don't taper from selvedge side).

If you want chainstitching, go to son of a stag in shoreditch

Anyone know how much Cheap Monday raws stretch? Am I looking at 1-2 inches or more?

Want something a bit slimmer than Samurai 710 raws. Was looking at the Skull 5010's but they might be a bit too tight. Any recommendations? PBJ?

Momotaro 0701, 0702 or 0705 is a great cut imo.
Pbj has slimmer cuts as welk but I don't like the overly slubby denim

I have both and don't reckon you'll find the 5010s too tight. They're slim straight but not skinny. Really nice cut. Low rise though.

Anyone who's ordered the PBJ XX-013 14oz, how did you get on with sizing them?

I was torn between a 31 and 32, but Denimio advised a 32 so I went with that.

Their waist flat measurement for a non-wash 32 is 86.4cm. Just received mine and they are 82cm. Way too tight and that's before a soak. Seems a massive variance in size from their supposedly accurate measurements.

Would expect at least a 33 inch waist before a soak. They definitely the raws and not the one wash? Was gonna order a pair of 34s from them…might hold off now.

Definitely the non-wash. I expect a bit of variance but that's a big difference. Shame, as the fit is perfect everywhere else. Really nice jeans. I'd definitely recommend doing the sizing consultation before ordering, as it qualifies you for a free exchange if it goes tits up like mine has.

Yeah the difference is pretty big. Thanks for the info by the way. I'll be doing that for sure. I think Dee went TTS size on his pair. Maybe drop him a line.

Ive got PBJ xx013s and they stretched massively for me after first soak. Id say fit well before wash, a bit tighter after wash, and now they have expanded to larger than before first soak
