———————————————————————————-

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

Buy them off ebay, you just need a hammer. I put some on leather no problem.

Although that said, for 1 press stud you might be better off just going to a tailors/sewing shop, they'd probably do it for a couple quid while you wait.

there's little diff

stay cash are bit cheaper and feel a bit cheaper too (polyester blend), they're more or less the same

The inside of my pocket, basically where the front stitching of the denim meets the pocket cloth has ripped, definitely need it fixed ASAP. Denim Doc or who else will be able to sort me out with that?

I just got something like this done at Atelier & Repairs along with a crotch repair. Was expensive, but they did a great job.

I have ripped the arse out of my unbrandeds, usually at this stage I would just bin them but want to see if I can get them fixed. Kraydog, do you remember how much they were?

Is darning what they should be doing to sort them? Or would they normally just patch them up?

A proper job would be darning, most places will patch though

I'm selling my 3sixteen ST100x (brand new but hemmed to 30" inseam), 3sixteen st120xk (kibatas, soaked for shrinkage but unaltered, approximately 33" inseam), my ByBeatle vol 1 jeans (soaked, hemmed and worn a few times winter last year, have to measure exact inseam length but I would guess 32") and my acne ace blue/black 30/32 (worn a couple of times and washed once).
If anyone is interested please let me know and I'll provide pics and more details/measurements.

Sorry mate, only just saw this, cant remember the exact amount, but think it was about 20 quid for all 4 corners of the crotch to be patched

tempted to get some Orslow 107's. Anyone recommend them? Sick of buying expensive jeans i end up not wearing though, how close are they in fit to APC PS which I really don't like anymore?

Cheers

Interested in this too. I would also like to know what's the sizing like. I've seen them fitting very differently online
