"Repro" means "reproduction," correct? When a brand like Sugar Cane puts out a '47 model based on the Levi's '47, they're reproducing the cut and details while other brands go further and try to replicate the denim. KMW takes note of certain eras (hence the year model numbers), but they're not directly trying to reproduce anything.

Picked up a pair of Jeanshop Rockers in grey from Mr Porter clearance. Quality seems excellent but the sizing is certainly generous.

And they will stretch ... while at the shop, they fitted me with a hip-hugging pair of 28s that eventually stretched out to the proportions of my typical size 30 denim

Same here, with one of the shirts. Even the medium was too large for me.

Generous is an understatement.  Put it this way. I am wearing one of the belts, in an XS, on the middle hole.

 

I am a size 32 in most jeans, size 33 if I want them to be baggy with plenty of room in the seat.  A size 30 Jeanshop "skinny" fits me slim.  A size 31 is pretty darn comfortable, and a size 32 is loose and really relaxed (super, super, comfortable, though.)

 

I think that it's because the owner is a big dude.

I have a pair of 29 JS medium slim fit that I have rinsed and tried to break in at home but the rise is just to low for me. Anyone want to buy or trade?
