I always end up with a bigger waist size to fit my legs. I don't do tight thighs nor do I buy denim online anymore so I'm stuck with whatever I can get local (Baldwin, APC and United Stock Dry Goods).

Let's try this again.

maybe buy apc rescues in your correct size then have them tapered/slim down? seems like a better option then having a waist taken in.

Do you guys buy jeans a little longer than you size (ex. you wear 32, but buy 33/34) to cuff the bottom and maintain length?

 

Some people seem like they have awesome cuffs and the way it falls over their footwear it so nice

Yup also leave a little extra in case of shrinking after a wash.

Depending on how much you need to get taken in, it can be done well but it's just a matter of finding someone to do it. An experienced tailor will know what to do if you just show them how much you need to take it in. If you need to take in a pretty large amount just be prepared for the jean to fit differently with the pocket positioning and what not.

dumb question, but will the twisting become more exaggerated as i wear them?

'nother dumb question, but is there anything i can do about it?



it's minor, so if it just stays as is, i won't mind too much, but if it's only bound to get worse, i don't know...
Leg twist is common for right hand twill denim. After the fabric shrinks, the yarns will pull In a certain direction which can cause twisting in rht denim. Twisting shouldn't get worse as you wear them but may twist a little more when you wash. There's not much you can do about it.

Still too tight in the thighs for my liking, I've tried them before. APC NS were 'ok' but I refuse to buy them at full price on principle (not worth the price at all).

I dropped them off at my tailor, he's pretty good and assured me that he could do it. We shall see. If it does, I will have the most perfect fitting pair of denim ever crafted.

Hey guys what do you guys think of the chain stitching runoffs on shirts with selvedge seams? To me it looks like tassels running off of your ass...:crazy:

Here's a challenging question for Parisians:

I live in Paris, where outside of APC and some random N&F at Colette there isn't much quality denim available for under 200 euros. (About 260 USD -- APC's are 135 euros = 185 or so USD). I've finally worn my BiG N-02s down to the point where they're too faded for work. So, I'm looking for APC-style denim, i.e. no embellishments, that I can try on here in Paris.

The Rocker Speed Shop or whatever it's called in the Marais has LVC but then quickly moves into the stratosphere, price wise. Am I stuck with APC/N&F at the 200 euro price point, or is there another brand I'm missing? I think French Trotters sometimes offers raw denim but the cut is pretty, well, French.

TIA

ok i was debating between 29 and 30 with unbranded201s but reading a lot the general consensus was sizing down is usually better so i ordered the 29. 

 

they arrived yesterday and they're proper tight around the waist and crotch. legs seem ok although somewhat skinny, but i couldn't even get any buttons done up on the fly. and it's really hugging my crotch, there's like no room to move in there. 

 

i read that it'll stretch a lot, and after wearing them yesterday i can now get the buttons done up (just) but it's still so freaking tight that sitting down is pretty uncomfortable. 

 

should i return these for the 30s or will the 29 continue to stretch a little more?

 

as it is now, after a few hours of wearing, they're uncomfortable and my roommate said they look like skinny jeans. if they'll stretch out more into a perfect fit then i'll keep them, but if there's not much more room to give then i guess i'll have to send them back. any advice?

I would return the 29 for 30. If 30 is a bit loose on you, you can always do a hot soak to shrink them down a bit. I think sometimes we get too fussy about how our jeans fit...I was like that...However, I've learned to adapt. For instance, my LVC, 1967, size 34 fitted me just right until I've lost 30 lbs. Now the waist is way too big for me. But instead of trading, selling them, and getting the next size down, I just tighten my belt about 2 notches and it's fine. I've learned comfort comes first and I rather wear a pair that's a bit loose than too tight.
