    I want a pair of the deadstock but I just want to be sure on size. My true waist is around 33/34 but most pants I get are 32 (J. Crew) or 31 (KMW 1980's). I'm thinking I should get a 32 in these but just wanted to be sure!

    Let me get this straight... reprehensible is buying the black jeans? Stop the presses! [​IMG]

    I am cagey and unpredictable. I've totally been wearing gray and white t-shirts!

    Really I'm looking for a straightforward pair of black jeans, which I don't actually own. The ones I have and like are coated; the raw ones I have, I don't like.

    Just got my pair of streaky EP's in the post. From wearing it about the apartment for a while, it feels and looks every bit as good as advertised. Definitely a new "APC killer". The bag they came in was a nice touch of luxury. One small piece of critique though: Maybe my pair is off the norm, but the waist size doesn't correspond with the chart on the site. My size 33 actually has a 35.5" waist (17.75" side to side).
    Thanks so much for your order and for the feedback. We used the measurements from the actual patterns, so there can be a .25 or .3" difference from doubling the waistband. Measuring the top of the waistband gets about 17.3, but perhaps you're matching the top and bottom and measuring it across? Please drop me a PM, and we'll get it sorted for you.
    Ditto, but black for me. Maybe they'll shrink with a soak? or should I exchange? I don't know if I can size down, though, because the thigh is about as slim as I can go.
    If you've got significant room at the waist, then I'd go down a size on them. The difference in the thigh is pretty minimal. PM me with your name, we can send you the smaller size so that you can compare them and see which works better.
    ill try to get a better pic, but im really happy with these. The bag is a nice touch. Good work ! [​IMG]
    Thanks for posting - they're a great fit on you!
    Was looking to buy the blacks in 31 but they're sold out!
    We'll be restocking this coming Friday. I've got three big-ass boxes coming from LA. Once they arrive, I'll do a full stock count and book in all the new inventory. We should definitely have a 31 for you.
    Have you made women's jeans yet? If not, what are you waiting for? [​IMG]
    Oh my god, the prospect of making women's jeans scares the hell out of me. It's hard enough selling them from other brands in the store. If I had my own personal warehouse of Xanax, maybe we could swing that. How about you guys? Any selvedge for the honeys?

    I'd recommend the 31. Most of our customers have gotten the best fit out of sizing down one from their typical pant size.

    Hank mobley is my fav tenor of all time. Very nice Cunningsmeagol!

    I love his playing too. He is incredibly melodic, plays zero BS, tone and time are right on. Very underrated. It's nice when people recognize the avatar and comment.

    Back on topic, thanks for the help, Mike.

    I sized down from 33 to 32 based on EPs recommendation, and Im glad I took their word. Fit is spot on.
