I regret not trying them on in the skinny fit which probably aren't even that skinny knowing how gap is.
when i tried them on they were pretty tight, and i only sized down.

I already have a pair of Nudie Slim Jims in white, but I couldn't walk out of the store without these GAP jeans.
The fit sized down 1 is very similar to a true-to-size Slim Jim. The GAP jeans were quite tight at the waist for the first day, but have loosened up considerably.
So the good news is, they are very nice jeans. The bad news is, I now have two pairs of jeans that are almost identical. Ideally I'd sell a pair; truthfully, I think the GAP pair is an overall nicer jean - the stitching, and the detailing is really quite nice.
FYI, this location in Toronto had a bunch of washes (including grey, white, raw, etc.) in the low-rise straight fit but only one wash in the "skinny" fit - which appeared to be raw. I didn't try on the skinny fit, but it definitely didn't look much different from the aforementioned cut.
wow a you really think a gap is better nudies??
