I really wanted those Kentucky slim narrow but the one 33×34 they had were put on hold by someone else so my sales associate couldn't do a store a transfer. Hopefully for spring they release some more washed and repaired slim narrows.
I was told sizing was always inconsistent because they went off the sizing of the piece the vintage piece the designers were replicating. Don't know if it's true but it will definitely helpful to have some kind of measurements. Surprised it took this long tbh
Ive heard that too. However I've noticed over time, theres a lot of repeated forms that get new material and new buttons or pockets (based on historical references) but are the same lines and constructions. I think there are occasionally new designs that are one offs. Look at the indian head varsity, that became the dixon that is now the lightening bolt dice preorder.
Or the maroon corduroy and yellow leather sleeved varsity from last year that is now the winged piston varsity. Only this one has a banded bottom this time. Otherwise change in color and add a patch.
I've had to be careful jumping on new items as I already have the same basic thing a few times over just in a different color, pattern or material.
Anyway just a thought as I too had heard the sizing is off because they are historical copies.
