post #1141 of 25411
Hello I had that same question on jean sizing previously if you'd be able to help please - when laid flat the comfort of my jeans laid flat in inches is 16. What size would you recommend to go with?

Also is the cast graphite one that will be released the same fit as the others? A straight fit or are the jeans generally a skinny fit?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Get a 32 ? And the graphite is more tapered in the leg

Just got my new villain in from the restock on Saturday and it's perfect. The hood is fixed and I have no complaints at all. Can't wait to pick up some more pieces from the new line!

I couldn't find a lot about their denim. How heavy and durable is it? How well do black/obsidian and indigo/cobalt fade? How does it compare to 3Sixteen and Rogue Territory?

The website says the denim is 10 oz, which is pretty light actually, they're gonna be thinner and less heavy than most of the raw denim you'll come across.

For people with the Cast/Nimbus, how have you washed your jeans? Any changes to the fit or fading after washing? I haven't washed mine yet after ~15x of casual wear.

I got like 5 wears in them lol. I think I'll probably end up washing them once a year.

I would recommend soaking these in woolite dark for ~ 30 min, then hang to dry, just like you would raw denim. This is the best way to treat them as they are essentially hand distressed versions of our raws. If you tumble dry them you're in for trouble.

Any soak on 100% cotton is going to essentially shrink them back to what they were when you purchased them, then they will stretch back out.

Our site unfortunately had a longstanding typo - the indigo denim is 12.5 oz, the black denim is 11.25 oz.

The indigo fades really well, especially in the Squall. Check our six month evo pictures a couple pages back.

What is your actual waist size, when measured flat across, on a jean that fits you well? I can then advise you on sizing for jeans.

As for tees and the Villain, you are probably good with a Large. The Villain has less give so if anything I would recommend to size up on that item. By Wednesday of next week, we will have fully interactive and updated size charts for every item in every size - so look out for that!

Didnt't have time to measure my waist, will do it in next couple of days. So you are suggesting to go for villain in XL? I still believe that L would fit me well, because I want similar slim fit as your model on the photos and that's pretty slim. 

And I would like to ask if you are planning to add some stockist in Europe? Because paying for shipping+ 22%taxes + extra x% of duties is killing me. For example a 500$ order from USA cost me 500$+20$ shipping + 520$x0,22(taxes) + 520$x0,09(duties) + 7$ charges post for their service and calculating duties+taxes and that is final 687,2$ for example. And I pay for duties and taxes the price for one escobars :( 

If you are planning to start selling in Europe in future, you will make a lot of people happy and gain a lot of new users of your products.

Soak in the washing machine or a bathtub? I'm a raw denim newbie
