———————————————————————————-

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'm looking for some black slim jeans. I'd usually go with dior for jeans, but the slim black ones are stretchy, and I don't like stretchy jeans. I'm considering these from Burberry Prorsum, but I don't have any information on how they fit. Has anybody tried jeans from Burberry Prorsum? I take a 31 in dior for reference.

Thanks in advance.

my new drkshdw jeans are tight around the waist (size30), need to loosen them up, any ideas other than simply wearing them? they aint raw, they're overdyed black. the fit perfect everywhere else like the arse/cock area etc, just the waist band.

on another note, another pair of my drkshdw jeans (blue/grey) are now too small after i washed them. gutted. up for sale if anyones interested? size 29.

damp the waistband down and stretch them out, if youve got the muscles for it

Question for anyone that has nn07 jeans, could I get away with 28" waist, if I'm normally 15.5" in my jeans for a slim fit, asking cos I know they fit big

Found these Levi's in a charity shop for £10 today.
Best find I've ever had.

32 waist, 8 inch leg opening.
White line selvedge. Red tab doesn't have Levi's written on it?
No metal rivets in back pockets.
From the scraps left of the size patch, it was obviously that 'paper' type, not leather.
They've been washed and worn a lot so all internal tags have lost their markings

Anyone know how old? I guess 80s.
