Very rarely wear jeans. Usually in a suit or flannel trews and a shirt but I could be doing with a pair of jeans that I actually like that fit me. Bit of a gaping hole on my wardrobe. I mean I’ve got about 6 pairs but I only wear them when I can’t be arsed - not because I like them, and it’s all to do with fit. I’ve big thighs, rear and hamstring and a relativity small waist. Also fairly big calves. I want something fairly loose fitting with around an 8 inch leg opening at a 31/32 waist (measuring 16inch ish laid flat). Anyone got any recommendations? I was looking at Real Mccoy 003.. can get them from Superdenim with free delivery and free returns so worth a punt.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Cost isn’t really an issue. If they fit how I want I’m happy to pay.

UES 400T are good for those with bigger thighs / calves. Available from rivet and hide.

Not a bad shout but taper looks to be a bit more aggressive than what I’m after…

Could anyone recommend some low or low-ish rise black jeans?
Slim or regular tapered, preferably raw/unwashed and definitely without stretch.
Not apc or naked and famous. Around £70-120 or something quite easy to pick up 2nd hand?
Cheers for any help

Comparible to ED80 I'd say
20 Nov 2018 11:56
thanks was just comparing on end and they seem to size similar to the ed80 rainbow raws
Do they stretch and shrink back on washes?

Do OrSlow do the 107 raw? I can only see 1 wash, I'm mainly for rinsing or washing raw denim anyway but just interested.

Pretty sure it is just one washed. Just to get all the shrink out

This has probably been asked a thousand times but what’s the best way to wash raw denim with minimal dye loss/shrinkage?
Been rocking mine for a year now
Is the dry cleaners best?

I just soak mine in a bath with Luke warm water and a bit of washing powder. Then let drip dry.
I think the hotter it is and the more they are agitated the more loss and shrinkage will occur.
Another way is to stick them in a pillowcase (RIP Pillowcase) and stick on a delicate wash in the machine, low temp.
