Kind of in the same boat as Montecristo, what with the specific sizing requirements.
Am still thinking about getting a pair of jeans but with all the brands, and all the fitting, and all of the different measurements (even on the same pairs of jeans - thanks Rakuten!), it's getting a little crazy.
Was planning on getting some LVC from coldrice, but now I am not sure.
Does anyone know how the waist measurements from the LVC tags are obtained? I believe they were post-shrinkage values, but did they measure right around the waist, or just across twice?
Most of my jeans are around 86.5 - 87cm circumference, but this works out to about 82-84 when measured across and doubled.
Also, I see a lot of thigh (watari) measurements that are like 30+ cm, are these really baggy or is it just me? I compared some bears measurements that were 30cm but my baggiest pants (Levi's 569 relaxed fit) were like 27 or 28. Guess there is some shrinkage, and they didn't look that baggy on the models, but this is really confusing.
[Don't worry coldrice, I will probably order something through you, it just may not be jeans
I am also curious if someone could point me to sizing methods for D'Artisan and Skull Jeans, I've got all the measurements off their sites but would like to see how they were obtained.
