———————————————————————————-

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

I've got some sizeable holes in 3 pairs of jeans - dior, gilded age, and apc from excessive cycling. Denim doctor's the man right? How much would I be looking to pay roughly for each if the holes are from the bottom of the crotch to around half way up the bum (no homo)?

I always say it's better to ask on a forum rather than asking direct, that way you guarantee you get the right answer

There should be a separate APC thread, every other post in this thread is about APC, and most of the time it's just people asking for the same sizing advice over and over.

So I washed my lvc 505 mid vees for the first time today (cold wash inside out) they had a stain on em, fucking orange ish, the cunt is still there just faded a bit, is their anything I can do to get rid of it?

Edit - I'm fucking clueless when it's come to washing denim, prefer to air them, unless it's bad

For the last ~2 years I've had 4 pairs of all saints jeans that have been great as I got them for half price in the sales, not had to care for them too much and got great wear out them. They've lasted me well but for a while I've been looking for something new but with a similar cut - unfortunately I'm not too clued up on what cut I'm actually looking for (saw a pair of edwins the other day but forget the cut).

Thought I'd come on here to see if anyone had any suggestions that would open my mind to some new jeans that I can really get into!

You could go for some APC jeans. They do a number of cuts and are somewhat affordable.
