ED47 VS Nashville

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just got a pair of ED-47's that I wasn't happy with. The jeans are awesome, but my ass is just too big.

What is the fit of the Nashville's compared to the ED47?
(denim weight, F&R rise, leg width)


(the ED47's are at http://styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=13731 )

The ed-47's are shit. I own a pair myself and have never worn them. Best are the Nashvilles or Greenvilles for a truer jeans fit. Nashville fit is pretty much like a Levis repro 1947 501.

I'm a professional sprinter so my glutes/legs are pretty developed. My waist is 32 and my seat is 39 or so. (my APC English fit me like a lot of these guys' standards do. Nudie RR are painted on my thighs)

Makes it a pain in the ass to find jeans. ED-47's are NOT baggy on me.

(the APC English fit perfectly on me. Slim, straight leg.)

Bear in mind they will stretch anyway if they are raw denim.

The nashville has a higher rise which I prefer - the denim is also heavier weight.

I assume you have a pair of Nashvilles? What are the actual measurements on them?

(being in BFE, I have to order my shit, and like to get it right first time)

Thanks for the input

actual measurements of what?

I wear a true 36 x 36, so the pair I own will probably be WAY different in terms of measurements, than the pair you will buy.

the best way to describe the fit, is like a traditional 501, or indeed any jeans style that were made before the 90s when "low slung, baggy, saggy, bootcut, hipster" etc etc and all that other nonsense started.

Unfortunately I feel the Ed-47 fits into the above, whereas the Nashville fits like a classic jean

Well, it really depends on how you wear your jeans. In fact, 501's used to come with instructions on what size to buy depending on how you prefered them to fit. I am wearing a pair of 5EPs straight downs right now that are pretty close to some vintage Levi's models (I would say closer to the 47 than 55) very antifit, low slung with a bit of a dropped crotch, rather loose around the butt and hips. However, I've worn the same jeans (in a different size) much tighter and higher rise.

I have a pair of nashvilles, fantastic denim and fits great from the knee up. However, below the knees they are quite narrow(Straight). Wearing chelsea boots or workboots look funny in them. I was going to buy a pair of LVC 47s from the web. Would the 47s be a bit wider below the knee or would they be the same as the nashvilles?

What about the greenville's?

Any taper tends to look a little odd on me
post #13 of 13
The taper is unnoticeable. Actually less than half an inch from knee to cuff. I have new pairs for sale, size 28
