Edwin jeans are so cheap in some places it’s not even worth getting them repaired.

Swear Edwin quality ain't the same as it used to be though.

Yeah most of the made EU (apart from Italy) stuff is crap but what do expect from £20 jeans.
The even started to remove the E tab from the back pocket as well.
Overall am happy if can wear Edwin’s for 4-5 years and they rip. Just gave 4 pairs away and the person was very happy.

I did not say the removal of E tab say it was anything to do with quality, its always been a small detail I personally have liked.
Ah I had a pair off Yoox and tag said Made in Italy

Used Melvin (Handy in NL) for years now - sometimes slow, but whatever, he's really good and reliable!

Anyone knows if the APC raw denim denim jackets wear out as much as the jeans? Think about picking an M instead of L.

We've recently set up The Denim Alterations Studio in East London (www.denimalterations.com).
Our goal is to offer the highest quality denim repairs and alterations online and by appointment from our studio. Our studio is perfectly set up as we only work with denim and our tailors were formerly denim tailors at Harrods and Selfridges.
We've managed to get hold of a vintage darning machine so can do really nice discrete and durable repairs without needing to use denim patches. Unfortunately, for the denimheads we don't yet have a chainstitch machine, but we'll be looking to get one in due course.
Drop us an email at email@example.com if you want to get a quote for any work. I'd be happy to give a 10% discount on repair jobs for the next couple of months if you mention you came via this thread.
Please let me know if you've got any questions!

need some black jeans - ideally ones treated to stay black. who is doing a decent regular fit (not stupid skinny or loose) version?
uniqlo have stopped theirs… arket only do a slim version.. acne only do weird fits now… stumped

COS slim fit tapered have always been good for me.

just a bit on the slim side for me. 32-33w but big quads. guess I could size up and rock with a belt

do all Edwin pre washed denims fit bigger than the same style in raw?
Been wearing ED45 in raw selvedge til now because I love the taper for my cycling thighs, but ordered some ED45 pre-washed selvedge in the same size and they come up absolutely massive.
will give pre-washed ED55s a bash if I can get a heads up on pre-washed typically fitting bigger than raw!
