I am wearing my bootcuts (raw, but rinsed by me) more often than my Straightdowns these days. I like the antifit jean, but have lost a bit of weight, and the Straight downs are just a bit too baggy at the hips ( I am one of those hipless wonders.) For an antifit, I would size down 1. I am very happy with my 30 Low Down boots, but I could easily have gone down to the 29, or even lower (my natural waist is 30, but I generally wear 31 or 32 jeans for an antifil). The rinsed 30s have just under a 32 waist. Yes, great jeans. Honestly, the denim is on par with any of the Japanese names bandied around (well, I haven't tried on Pure Blue Japans), and the fit keeps true to the "originals" while being a slimmer (provided you get the size you want), more modern fit. Sort of Repro quality with modern sensibilities. I am also going to give both cuts a big Yay.
