———————————————————————————-

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

The stiching in the crotch area of my jeans has started to come undone but the crotch hasn't blown yet. Best just get it re-stiched or reinforce? Also the heel area on both legs are now ripped to shreds. I take it any good tailor would be able to repair as it isn't that big a job to send to the denim doctor.

how do people rate han kjobenhavn denim? comparable fit/quality? the tapered selvage look pretty decent and there's a slimmer cut for a/w which looks nice too.

I think I've tried wearing every brand of jeans imaginable and I still rue the day I sold my DH jakes and so Ive time warped back to 2008/9 and bought another pair. £300 from LVR Sad but at least the £ is strong against the euro so it be more here.

How effective are reductions on waist size by the denim doctor?

Got some old fucked up samurais that fit maybe 2inchs too big for me and was thinking of sending them off.

Is that too drastic of a reduction?

never had it done myself but doesn't having the waist adjusted fuck up the position of the back pockets?
