Yep, from the advice of someone here, I emailed them to setup and account for me to auto deduct VAT, took about a day.

scar tank - sized up (L)
nimbus jawnz- went with a 29, fit reminds me of some combination of PS/weird guy/Dior, I could probably do with a 30 but the 29's right now have just enough room in the top block, wash/distressing looks good in person and back of knee honeycombs are appropriately placed for me

i want to hear more about the jeans, when you can. I think I've posted this before, but the rise on the PS has been feeling too low to me of late, and I really have no idea where to look. I should probably post this in the denim thread, but does anyone know where to get what's basically a petit standard with a higher rise? (like, an inch) I think Teger mentioned Dior a while ago, but trying to figure out and then pay for Dior jeans kind of scares me.

Might try the Pure Blue Japan 013. Seem to recall that was a mid-rise slim/taper fit.

Those are essentially the same price as diors

synthese, you could just get NS and taper them...

edit: two awesome purchases noob, drowned world is great. you must've read the atrocity exhibtion right? contains my favourite ballard piece, 'why i want to fuck ronald reagan'.

same here, most jeans just can't handle my ghetto booty, didn't really feel that much of a difference when I tried on a pair of 19cms.

Proxy would change that and they're a better quality jean. Fit I don't know, Diors are tough to beat there.

Yes! I found an old oversized edition by RE:search (I think they're called) in a used book store back in high school. That book is so crazy. Don't remember the Reagan bit, though; I'll have to go dig it out of my parent's attic.

I think you're the same size as me.  I went 32 (TTS) in mine but I was going for more of a slouchy fit, I'd say 32 or 31 in the washed kind (depending on what you're going for) and size down one for the raws?  I think the sizing tends to vary, though.  You might also want to look for a pair with a polyurethane blend.

I'm a 32 in the raws so you're probably a 30 or 31.
post #33615 of 43373
I'm a 32 in PS and went with 32 in raw MIJ Dior 19cms. So...
