I recently bought a Skinny Guy Black Power Stretch in size 30 (which measures 31 apparently), however I won't be able to try it on for another few weeks. I've been thinking about the sizing a lot (and although I won't really know until I try them on) I was wondering if anyone with experience with the SkG power stretch can help answer some fit questions? I read around on various forums, checked blueowl's sizing chart and the consensus seemed to say go TTS. That being said, some posters say it is best to go TTS with power stretch and size down on other SkG due to the difference in fabric (much tighter and because of the stretch recovery) while others say to size down 1 with power stretch because the stretch accomodates sizing down. What is everyone's experience with this?
I'm 5'7, around 130 lbs
Waist (hip): about 30"
Calves: 14 - 14.5"
I generally go TTS...I've worn Nudie Slim Jim in 30, Thin Finn in 29 and currently I'm wearing Levi's 511 in 30 and 510 in 32 (although the waist has stretched maybe an inch, I wear a belt).
I'm liking the 511 fit at the moment, however those have stretched all around and in the waist to maybe a 31.5 inches and so I'm looking for a slightly slimmer cut than how they currently fit. Looking at the measurements on Blueowl, I think I'll be able to fit into the 29, but it might be too tight on my calves and I'm not looking to go the Thin Finn sz 29 route again. Either way, I am planning on pre-soaking to get rid of any starch, extra dye and shrinkage. What do you guys think? How do the power stretch fit and wear in compared to other SkG? Thanks!
