oh my gosh, just got my RTxIDC Black Stantons. Sized a 33. Definitely couldve gone 32. they fit loose in the bum. Did a hot soak to try and shrink a little but theyre sanforized so the results were minimal (they do stand up on their own now though ha).
despite the sizing being a little bigger than id have liked, they are absolutely astonishingly solidly built and designed jeans. The solid black selvedge is so nice, so tough. I may have been happier with the SK in hindsight, but these are more versatile not being so skinny.
I used to be a 36 but have lost just shy of 40lbs since may so i was excited to get some new RGT's to make up for my now far too large dark stantons and RK ISC's. I did some measurements against my N&F Skinny Guys to match up to the RGT stanton sizing chart and the 33 should have been near perfect. I guess the 32 would have been better. So size down one on these, guys, IMO.
But with the discount on the cyber monday sale, I got these jeans for 160, and to compare them to my N&F's or APC New Cures in that price range the craftsmanship comparison would be laughable. These are fucking gorgeous.
I also got the dark brown/gold roller buckle belt (the one without the stitching decals) and it is the perfect weight and sized belt to my taste. Slightly thinner than my corter and tanner belts, but such a solid belt. should sized down to a 34 belt but went 36 and im on the last notch. I can always punch a new hole if i must. Just bought a belt punch on ebay for 6 bucks last week to account for the recent weight loss.
