    I just bought a used pair of New Cures that had been worn in slightly, when they arrived they smelled strongly of smoke, should i hot soak them or straight up wash?

    Dior Homme jean sizing question - do they fit true to size? What's the general recommendation?

    I've owned one pair of Dior jeans (not raw) and I would say size down 1 would've worked, except the thighs were too tight for me.

    Washed: Size down one.

    Raw: down two...

    is the general consensus; you might just be too fat.

    For my SJDJs, I ended up sizing one. They ended up getting a bit more roomy than I would have wanted until I washed (and machine dried) them for the first time, when they shrank back down to a nice fitted by comfortable size. I probably could have went tts on them though and just hung dry for a similar result.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I want to do more running. Calipers say I'm 9% BF and I want to get down to 7% BF, they might fit better then.

    Hey SF

    Just a quick question. Does anyone have experience with the Nudies Grim Tim Dark Knight jeans? I'm thinking of sizing down one size and was wondering if the jeans will stretch at all? I'm usually a size 30/31 waist in Nudies Slim Jim. The grim tim is composed of 62% cotton and 38% PBT. I want it to be slim but not slim to the point that I'll be losing my sperm count.

    thanks in advance for the advices.

    What's after APC? I first got into raw denim with Nudie and worked on two pairs of RRDS over two years and wore both of them out. After that, I got a pair of APC Rescues and I've been working on them for about half a year so far. I've been much happier with the quality of APC compared to Nudie. What's the next step up in quality?

    I'm right under a 30W and sized down to 28 in the Weird Guys and they stretched to fit really comfortably.

    Sag- they were meant to be worn that way.
