———————————————————————————-

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

Can anyone recommend me some nice dark or raw indigo slim jeans? Somewhere in the region of £100 - £200.

Really like my acne north ones but they’re a bit worn out and I can’t find another pair in my size.

Thanks

Have a look at Japan Blue Jeans, slim cuts and a fair price point. Kafka (on sale now) and Clutch stock them, amongst others.

Bought some Pherrows 441 off eBay. Got my model numbers mixed up and these are too slim for my taste.

Thought I’d see if anyone here fancied them for a bit less than I bought - £65 inc delivery. Size 33x31 (taken up from 36 with chain stitch, done at son of stag). Fit a 32 waist imo.

Great nick, original colour and no fades as of yet.

These - https://clutch-cafe.com/products/pherrows-441-jean

Will pop on eBay in a few days if no takers. Cheers!

that's why I posted!

Just ordered these and they are most definitely not black! Fit is exactly what I want as well which is annoying

Shame about those ones not being black, have been advertised to me a few times on FB and looked interesting as a brand

I am beating these Iron Heart Ultra Heavy Raw 23oz for them at the moment.


Dunno how much people on here are into heavy denim but this denim is lovely. Well worth getting if you can

I've got some 18oz Samurais and some 21oz Iron Hearts. I find the 21oz way more comfortable than the 18oz. Get quicker fades with the Samurais though. What's the 23oz fabric like Spit? Like their 21oz?

It's very different from the 21oz. Texture wise and the way it fades. You get some amazing contrast with the fading. Fades a lot quicker too.

would if I could mate but these go back to IH in a few months for pics and then displayed at trade shows and stuff. I kinda want to buy these myself once they finished with them.

This is the 777 but they 2 sizes up from my usual size. Waist is obviously loose but feel perfect for work.

How did you end up with that gig? As cool as it looks I couldn’t imagine wearing jeans as a tradesman, are they not quite restrictive?
