Thosethings were big... and actually I probably could've gone down to a 40 if I didn't plan on washing them. Is it normal for the STFs to run big like that?
Also, what are your thoughts on buying the 501stfs true to size and smply dry cleaning?

1) Yes. it is normal.

2) Buy the size that best fits you pre-shrink (in the waist). Wash/soak like normal. It will be tight for a while, but will stretch back out to that comfortable fit w/o getting too big. Buy what fits you.

Well, I would imagine that unsoaked STF jeans would fit large...because they're supposed to be. That's the point of shrinking the jeans to fit. In theory, dry cleaning should minimize shrinkage so it's an acceptable route if sizing down on unsanforized jeans.

There could very well be a good reason for that.

Anyone has an opinion for the fitting for Nudies Tight Long John and April 77 Joey?

 

A pair of Dr Denim Snap at w30 fits me just nice. I figured for the Nudies, I should size down to probably w28? But I'm not particularly sure for April 77's fitting.

 

Will be grateful for opinions on both models. smile.gif

Need some help with Imogene & Willie Bartons.  Looking to pick up a pair because I've got a $50 coupon on P&B.  I was wondering if anyone knew the measurements of the waist and the thighs of size 32.  The only advice that I could find online is that they're similar to APC NS, but I'd kinda like something more specific before I take the plunge.

Might as well crosspost this here for the denim experts:

 

I got a Levis trucker in grey rigid, have a few questions about the denim, hoping someone has some experience with levis rigid denim of some sort. There is a tag on it that says it may shrink in the wash, how much shrinkage should I expect?  Will it stretch out much from normal wear?  I think it fits pretty well, could handle slight shrinkage but I'm afraid I'll wash it and it won't fit me anymore.  How much does it actually shrink?

I&W seems like the kind of brand that would be good with customer support with questions like that considering how little is talked about them here.

Honestly, I'd try the skinny cut first. Uniqlo US stuff is generally acceptable, despite its asian origins.

Great thank you. Any special considerations with the rigid denim or just wear and wash when necessary?

I know it's probably not recommended... but what is the best way to take in the waist of jeans without throwing off the look (i.e. darting the jeans)?

I always have 2 options when buying jeans and pants.

1. Buy a slimmer fit with a slightly bigger waist to fit better on my thighs (side effect of being short means that my thighs are generally proportionally larger than my waist than most taller folks. It's also a side effect of lifting, biking, hiking, and running...).

2. Buy a looser fit that fits both and taper the leg.

I bought some stuff using option 1 thinking the 1" extra on my waist wouldn't be a huge deal. Unfortunately, it somewhat is. The extra waist material cinches if I wear a belt and while my pants don't fall off my hips entirely or anything, I think 1" less on my waist would be far better.

What's the best way to get a tailor to do this? I don't want to go moving the front button or hole over or something. That'd be odd. I also don't want darts... but is there any way to avoid them? Additionally, I'm thinking that taking the waist in at the sides would be more balance than taking it from the back.

Has anyone done this with success? If so, let me know what your tailor did. There is a pretty good tailor in my area, so I'm thinking they would be able to handle a difficult project. Though if it's super expensive, it might not be worth it I guess.

Damn it... jeans are definitely not designed for bigger thighs.

same problem here. even most of the "straight leg" jeans I try on are ready to burst if I have to squat down to pick something up. I've got the right amount of muscle for someone my size, its just all concentrated between the knee and the hip....
