    PC NS's stretch real quick and like crazy. I got a 31 in APC NS back in the summer lost some weight, they fit ok. Probably would be good in a 30 now.

    Ended up getting 31's in the SL-100X and they fit great. Bit tight at first but now fit like a true straight leg jean. Mine opened up pretty nicely after 15 wears or so. You'd probably be good in either the 31 or 32 in the SL-100, not so sure about the ST-100.

    Anyone know where I can get 3sixteen in Toronto?

    I'm looking to get a pair but not sure which size would fit me so. I wear N&F Slim guy dirty fade in size 31 and UB301 in 33. I have APC NS in 31 but the thigh is a little too tight for me. 32 would have fit me better I think.

    Club Monaco flagship on Bloor.

    In the basement.

    CSA's don't know anything about the product though, they don't even realize there is a difference between ST and SL

    Sorry for your experience. We've got some new accounts in the pipeline that should be a lot more helpful than the folks at Club Monaco. Stay tuned...

    My experience with the Flagship Club Monaco on Bloor Street was excellent. The Sales Associate knew the difference between SL- and ST-, and also knew the difference between 3sixteen raw denim and Club Monaco's own raws, in terms of price, fit, stretch, and quality. Also that the sizing number means jack shit.

    My personal experience with sizing 3sixteen has been disastrous. It just doesn't fit my body. The folks in this thread were not sympathetic to my sizing crisis either :(

    I've worn a lot of denim through a slow weight gain of 40 lbs from lifting weights the past 3 years and I can tell you that human bodies differ in proportion in dramatic ways. The modern fashion trend of tightly fitted yet durable denim is just not easy to squeeze everyone into. Hobbyists are going to be somewhat unsympathetic and manufacturers cannot generate a universal fit.

    My SL100x arrived from Blue Owl - awesome service from Jay

    I ended up buying the 32 - and I can only JUST get my top button done. I expect it to fit in the waist similar to APC NS 31

    tad tight in the thigh/seat but do not look too indifferent in fit than the guy above with the shadow version. I Think once the denim relaxes these will be awesome.

    The feel of the denim is HEAPS better than the APC. Ill take a fit pic once I bust them in.

    Hi guys,

    I'm digging a black selvedge pair of jeans that doesn't fade.
    The ST-220X seems to be a good pick.

    How does this model strech in the waist?
    I am a true W33 and I was wondering if the tag 31 (which is measured for 32.5 on BOW chart) would be ok.

    Thank you :)

    That might be a bit tight on you, add to the fact you are looking at the ST's and not SL's. It will stretch, but takes far longer than say APC's, plus do you intend on wearing these almost daily so you get that stretch quickly?

    I'm a true 32, got the SL-100's in 31 since I wear those often and they have strecthed out nice. Went with 32's in the SL-220's since I don't wear them as often.

    Thanks Spencer for your feedback.
    I am used to buy my jeans tight and make them naturaly stretch to my waist but it is also true that I don't plan to wear these really often, these would be my dressy jeans.
    Regarding BOW measurement chart the tag 31 is 32.5 in the waist. That would be easy to get the 0.5 stretch. But on 3sixteen official website they are given for W32 which would be a little bit too tight. Finally Self Edge mention that the jeans can stretch up to 1.5 inch in the waist.

    I wear a 30 in APC PS, and the 32 3sixteen SL fits me a similar, but a bit more straight leg. And the double blacks do fade by the way, a lot faster than I even expected. I'm at about 4-5 months of consistent wear and I've got a fair amount of whiskers and combs setting in.

    What? The ST-220X fades?

    Here is what they say on the official 3Sixteen website:

    Hmmm... this doesn't really look like standard fading, more like a pair of old jeans that got many machine washes.

    I noticed you are selling a pair of Momo 0701. Do you also own a pair of 3sixteen ST by any chance? If yes how would you compare the sizing between your Momo's and 3S?
    I received a pair of 0702 few days ago in tag 32 and they're just a bit tight in the waist. I would need a similar fit with my futur ST-220X :)

    I'm currently wearing a size 32 0701 and a size 30 SL100x
    My momos are tighter in the thighs but looser in the waist and leg opening.

    Thank you. I guess I could easily go with the ST-220X in tag 31.

    I want to buy some jeans that fit like my washed levi's 511 size 31, would the ST-100x indigos size 31 be the best match? Thanks.
