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

What jeans are there, that come in 31/30 inside leg length, but still have a Petit Standard/19cm cut and Japanese denim/quality denim?

All the main brands that people recommend on here are ridiculous leg lengths, the only quality denim that come in a shorter leg size are Vis with a 30 inside leg.

Anyone got any suggestions please?

Every pair of jeans I have had altered never ended up looking like how they originally did. No matter who I have taken/sent them to. You just lose the overall natural shape and cut of the jeans in their unaltered form.

APC PNS have two options now - Indigo and Indigo Stretch. Is the difference just weight or something? They dont have indigo in my size that's all.
