Baldwin Raw Selvage - Page 7

post #91 of 96

Hey David,

 

I dropped an email to the Baldwin email address yesterday but I'll ask here, too. Can you provide some sizing guidance and/or measurements on the Reed in raw selvage? It often seems that denim brands recommend sizing down one in the waist -- I'm usually a 32 in dress pants, but most denim I have is a 31. What's the shrinkage/stretch factor for this fabric?

 

Thanks!

I can get back to you with specific measurements for the fabric we have in stock right now tomorrow if you like. However I will say it definitely depends on the denim you have typically been wearing. We are more of the vanity sized variety, meaning a waist "size" is often going to measure a bit larger. For example our 30 will often times measure about 16 inches across the waist, making it a 32 inch waist.

As far as the stretch goes, I would always suggest buying them slightly more snug than you wish for them to fit in the end. A lot of people suggest sizing down in a more extreme manner, but I don't think it is that necessary. In my experience, the tighter the jean, the more it will stretch - but that doesn't mean you have to get it super tight or anything. For example, I could wear either a 30 or a 31 depending on how I want that particular jean to fit. Sizing down will keep it more slim/snug, but a 31 would still fit me appropriately. 

I would expect about an inch or so of stretch in the waist, and some give wherever else it feels snug.

 

Feel free to shoot me an email and I can send along measurements of what we have in stock currently -> DH@BALDWINDENIM.COM

Hey David, 

 

Are there any plans to release a shadow selvedge denim or any denim trousers in the near future?

So I snagged a pair of the '76 jeans. Anyone know anything about the type of denim used? Weight/origin or anything else? I know they're wide-loomed, and I'm hoping these are the same quality you'd expect from the other raw denim offerings. They fit nicely, but definitely thinner than other raw jeans I've seen.

One thing I did notice was there isn't any chain-stitching on the hem. I thought that was pretty usual for a high-end denim co.

The '76 is a 12.5 oz yarn-dyed, wide-loomed denim woven in the US. The feedback so far on them has been really positive. I think if you are comparing it to our selvage options, then you aren't going to find the same depth of character. However it is a great jean for the price.

Cool, thanks for the response David! I'm looking forward to breaking them in. After a couple of days they're starting to feel great!
