Â I normally wear a 30 waist and 30 length in washed jeans (Nudies, 575), and while these jeans fit well, I couldn't imagine them any tighter. I suppose I have slightly larger haunches for a person my size, although my calves are pretty skinny. You think I should size up for the 5eps? Â (Incidentally, I had to return a pair of washed Acne's in a 30 waist recently because I couldn't even pull them up to my hip, never mind button them.) Okay. I wear a 30 in Nudies, and I could go down to a 29, but they'd be tight. I wear a 31 in the 5EPxSF. No way you are going to be able to wear a 30 in the 5EPxSF. I would size up to 31 if I were you, even a 32, if Nudies in a size 30 are actually tight on you, rather than just fitted/normal. Seriously. No one ever listens to me when I tell them that the 5EPxSF is quite unforgiving at the smaller sizes.
