I have the 101B Euro and have just ordered the 101Z's. I normally take a sz 32 waist and i ordered these in a 30 and they fit perfect in the waist and are cut a little loose in the legs. I havent washed them yet so i cant tell you about shrinkage but they are a very light and soft denim, not the stiff nudy or A.P.C. selvedge that many are used to (which is what i expected them to be). I like them alot and keep them in my regular rotation. I ordered the Z's in my regular waist sz because they are said to fit a little slimmer, i will report back when i get those in.
