    All right, given the numerous demands for jeans "size" and "fit, we could start some index giving "real" measures of standard brands and models. Here is what I propose :

    Waist :

    Front rise :

    Back rise :

    These are the results for a levis 501 "made in america" from the early 90s, size W30L32 :

    I think it's a very good idea. I'll add in some of mine when I get the chance.

    I think he meant similar to the denim terminology thread, not that we should create a denim terminology thread.

    I always wanted to start something like this.  Great idea.  That way one could more intelligently order clothing online sans trying stuff on.

    There should be true-size databases for other articles of clothing too, especially shirts and shoes.

    Topic has been pinned. Thanks for the idea, Luc. To make this easier for new people, would you mind editing your post so that all of the jeans you're showing are in the main thread, in a list manner similar to your reply with the Helmut Langs? When a different user posts measurements for their jeans, you can just edit the post again and add the new info.

    welcome batch.

    actually I took the measurements you gave on superfuture. I ordered a pair of unisex size 30. Haven't received them yet. Could you post here the measurements of your Nudies RR?
