———————————————————————————-

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

Wow, that pricing is ridiculous. I got mine on sale for a tenner, and there seems to be no difference in styling.

Albam Regular leg is their closest fit to APC NS right? If I'm a 33 in APC NS what should I get in Albam?

My Petit standars came today, got a size 30, sized down 2 like is generally said, but I couldn't even get the 1st button done up lol. So i swapped for 31 and they were fine, don't even feel tight. Only thing is I preferred the fit on the legs of the 30, the 31 seems to be about an inch or 2 longer on the legs. Is there any point in getting them shortened?

Allow this basic question….I have bought a pair of raw New Cures. I can just about get them buttoned up (pretty tight), which I assume means they will stretch to about the right size over time (ie an inch or two)? How long will it take to stretch?

Also, are New Cure slimmer than Petit Standard?

Cheers

they'll stretch out within a day/two, but make sure you wear them with a belt to stop them overstretching

new cures are slimmer than petite standards

do you really believe the materials technical ability is advanced enough to stretch with the force of your body but also force itself back with the gravitational anti force of the belt then yeah? Cool

no, but if you always wear a belt with them, the waist wont be able to stretch beyond the belt…

Mine stretched loads. The button was sore on my pelvis week 1, by week 4 or 5 they were an inch or two too big.
