———————————————————————————-

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

That's insane for four months of wear, looks so good.
Shirt looks great too.

Do people still wear Evisu jeans?

I’m moving house shortly and stuck some on eBay and the amount of messages and offers within an hour is crazy. Have like 10-15 pairs that have been sitting there for years and years.

Been offered £85 for 3 pairs, was thinking they would only go for £15-20 each. I could understand even 10 years ago but haven’t seen anyone wearing them in ages. Not complaining though

Seems like the 105 and 107 are the new APCs. Much better go-to imo.

Apc’s are absolute trash to these. Especially those tissue paper pockets apc’s have. 107 slimmer.

I was eyeing up some 105s. I have 4 107s, two cord pieces, two fatigues, a moleskin and shorts. They are easily my go to brand as they are the only ones that fit.
