———————————————————————————-

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

Looking for some heavy used wash, straight fit denim. Really like the look of these warehouse ones but they seem to be sold out everywhere. Any decent alternatives, at a similar price, ideally?

If you want them to look worn, imo Warehouse look the best.
Full Count worth looking into. Assume you've looked at Orslow 105s 2 year wash?

If you just want them washed out, I think the newer 3sixteen stonewash ones look decent.

Thanks. I’m looking for fades ideally. The warehouse are the best pre washed I’ve seen but they seem to fit tiny and everywhere seems to be sold out in larger sizes. I’ll have a look at Full Count too.

Had considered the Orslow’s but just really liked the wash on the Warehouse ones. Might order a pair to check them out in person.

Orslow’s fabric is great in person, love mine.
Careful with the length on the Warehouse ones, I would have got some myself but can’t make 28” inseam work.

McCoy's do some again this time, I think they cost loads more than Warehouse. I have a pair of warehouse and they may come up short and quite lightweight denim so that may not suit but think the fades look good

Thanks again both. I reckon the inseam might be a bit short on the Warehouse.

How’s the sizing on orSlow work out Andrew? Im looking for something with a waist measuring around 35 inches so not sure wether it’s a 3 or 4 I’ll need.

I'd go with a size 4 in Orslow mate.

What Doogan said, they stretch out at the waist. So sz3 perfect

Thanks for the advice on these. Got a pair of one wash and 2 year wash on offer at the last bank holiday. They were a little tight on the first year but fit perfect now.

any recs for decent washed black tapered fit denims?

something like this (but ideally selvage) but preferably UK based so can order a couple of pairs for size and return without the cross border hassle:

not for the above but got a pair of Blackorse Lane recently, they have a proper shop in Coal Drops yard now.

Choice of fabric let's you manage price point, there is a good selection of cuts and the quality and construction is very good and considered. All made in London. Minimal branding (I can live with the patch) as well. Recommend them.

lovely slacks to be fair but 400 smacks is a cheek!
