Or you could try posting the question to one of the industry professionals on the forum, like Kiya in the Self Edge thread. He or someone else in that position might have a good sense of what brands might carry smaller sizes.

 



Thanks. I'm leery of alterations shops ever since one lost my favourite shirt ('90s Versace olive green shirt, beautiful, needed a couple repairs), so I had better learn to sew! Yes, even SLP doesn't seem to go down to a 23"-24" waist even though I'm pretty sure their runway models have that kind of waist! Any recommendations for Japanese brands? I only really know CDG, Issey Miyake, and Uniqlo.

I'll see what Kiya has to say. Does he reply to PMs?

Sorry, no helpful rec's. I was just looking at Blue In Green's inventory for something else and saw that even their women's cuts don't have waists smaller than 25 or 26 inches.

Not sure if Kiya responds to PM. Can't hurt to try, obviously. He responds to questions in the affiliate thread, but obviously that's focused on their own offerings. Your instinct of a PM seems like a solid place to start.

Hi, any suggestions for some jeans that have a similar fit to petit standards? Low rise, slim etc.

 

Petit standards fit me better than any other jeans I've ever worn, but I'd like to try something with a bit heavier denim maybe. I tried Somét 008's, but I thought the pockets looked kinda weird. Appreciate any help, thanks.

looking for a fitted / skinny look, but i have wide thighs and am fairly squat. what are good brands / cuts that might accomodate my body type?

 

i previously wore N&F weird guy, which fit very well, but the knee area down could be more fitted (if possible).

Have not bought denim in a very long time and looking for a rec. Last pair I had was Lee Gold Label - 101Z in 29x34 and they fit great. Looking for something similar, like lower waist and skinnier cut, dry and on the rigid side. I'm 5'10" 140lbs but also in my forties. I like the look of the apc petit new standard fit and also Nudie thin finn but not sure what else is out there. Budget $300 or less. Thanks!

Give Gustin a try.

post #21412 of 21414

Yes - Gustin's Slim fit would be a good choice (or Skinny fit if you want tight). Also Brave Star's Slim Straight fit (or Skeleton Skinny if you want tight).  Possibly also Unbranded's Skinny fit (UB101, etc) - which is really more of a typical Slim fit.  Warning - the Unbrandeds and the Gustin Skinnys have really low rises.

Thanks guys, i'm going to check out unbranded, they are available locally at blueowl in seattle so i can try them on. their tapered or skinny fit looks like they might work.

Hi gents, I haven't posted in ages, but have a question that this crowd might have good suggestions on to help me solve. I'm not what you'd call a denim aficionado...I do have a brand and fit that I've loved and rocked consistently for the last decade or so that seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.

I've sworn by Earnest Sewn jeans in the Fulton fit - basically a slim, straight, low-rise fit that happened to work perfectly for me. Typically, I've picked up a few pairs in my size, worn them to tatters, and replaced them with the current iteration. My understanding (which may be inaccurate) is that the designer has moved on to bigger and better, and Earnest Sewn Fultons have become scarce, regardless of the actual details of what is happening/has happened to the company.

The question ultimately is what to replace them with, in terms of finding a close approximation to both the quality and fit of those jeans. Any other Earnest Sewn Fulton devotees out there who've found another designer or company's product to replace them with? Thanks!
