    Ok so I haven't soaked my Somets but I wore them today. Actually wearing them now. Let me tell you that every step. Every time I sat down, it was like someone had steel wires digging into my thighs. I thought I'd cut an artery. I almost cut my hands up tucking my boxers in... And it took like 10 minutes to button them up. I need to lose some flab [​IMG] But not that they are on... They are starting to losen up a little bit. But God... my balls... they freaking hurt every time I walk... it's like a permanent wedgie

    Hey there, I am looking for recommendations for jeans with a rough, worn out look.. These pictures show pretty much exactly what I'm after (I am linking up the image as it's large): http://www.sellerinside.com/mypage/a...HC908-gray.jpg I am on a bit of a tight budget but don't mind saving up though so recommendations in all price ranges are welcome - just trying to get an idea of what's out there! Thanks and merry christmas [​IMG]

    When I get measurements for denim on a website, it gives me ones accurate to a waist size of 32.
    For instance:

    waist: xx"
    front rise: xx"
    back rise: xx"
    thigh: xx"
    knee: xx"
    leg opening: xx"
    inseam: xx"
    (Measurements according to size 32)

    How do I convert these measurements to a size smaller then that, like a 28 or 26?

    PRPS or Diesel but that wash you linked is horrid. If you're on a budget, check ebay. I'm sure you can find some Thai fakes for cheap.

    You don't. Different cuts of jeans, as well as manufacturers, will have different systems of grading.

    I figured as much. Does this mean I'm doomed to shop brick and mortar for the rest of my life (not including free-return websites)?

    Websites offer measurements... farinelli's, context, etc. Have you tried looking or emailing for them?

    My problem is that most (if not all) websites offer measurements in 32. I'm far too skinny to rely on that.

    BiG offers some great charts, but only for a select few brands.

    And by a few select brands you mean all of them, right?

    They don't offer A.P.C... though Farinelli's does. So I guess that covers it.

    Thanks guys.

    [​IMG] so you expect BiG to have size charts for a brand they don't carry?

    Did you read my original post at all?

    I want to know a useable method to find out this information on my own.
    I've heard that BiG's charts are inaccurate, and they don't carry every brand.
    According to whodini there's no reliable way, but I wanted to see if anyone else had an opinion.
