    hey guys, first post after being a lurker for a long time -- i was lured by the denim topics. just a suggestion but, they way yall are measuring the waist doesn't seem to be the best method, becuz of the dip in the front. the amount jeans dip in the front is kind of subjective from brand to brand/fit to fit etc, so when i'm doing actual measurement i line up the front with the back so its straight across and take the measurement that way. if this has been mentioned, sorry [​IMG] i tried to read the thread all the way through

    Yet another APC Rescue update. This time size 30.

    Size: 30
    Waist: 16.75
    Front rise: 11.5
    Back rise: 15.5

    These are finally keepers I think. Interestingly, they seem a lot shorter inseam-wise than the size 31s, which were really long.

    if anyone could post some measurements of APC new standard size 27 as compared to size 28 (or 26 compared with 27, or any two sequential sizes for that matter), it would be much appreciated!

    should people post whether or not they've washed their jeans?

    edit: oh someone already said that.

    About time this thread got new life.
    Agreed. Anybody else care to chime back in on this? Somebody w/a pair of Straight Svens, in particular. A bunch of stuff got lost in the crash. I'd contribute, but all my jeans have been cut up and sewn back together. Slap this thing back on top. It deserves it up there more than some other threads.

    I know SF is under totalitarian rule and all, but I've been around for a while and I'm voicing my concerns. If it gets me purged, so be it.

    There are THREE (3) stickied threads w/the words "Engineered Garments" in the title. TWO (2) of them also share the word 'belts.' One hasn't been updated in the last week. There are thousands looking for a comprehensive list of jeans' measurements. STICK THIS MUTHER FUCKER ON TOP. Update it, please. Svens, please. I'm drunk, thank you. That is all.

    Nudie SSDS, from this season's streaky/flame denim run--

    Size:34/34
    Waist: 18.25"
    Front rise: 10"
    Back rise: 14.5"
    Inseam: 35"
    Leg opening: 8.75"

    Now bear in mind that these were unbelievably tight when I started wearing them, and I've stretched them out to fit me. So this is the farthest I think they can stretch from a 34. The crotch is still fairly constricting. Basically, size down 1, unless you're unlucky and wear a larger even size. Then I'm not sure what to recommend, because they're tight in the crotch when I sized down 2, but the thigh and leg look great. Another consideration is the orange stitching on the button side of the denim, which shows a visible pull by the top button if you stretch them out, and with the low rise, it's hard to hide.

    Rag & Bone RB11 Selvedge--

    Size:34/34
    Waist: 18"
    Front rise: 10.5"
    Back rise: 16"
    Inseam: 34"
    Leg opening: 9"

    I sized down on these as well, and they turned out perfectly because of the dropped crotch. The waistband does not impede stretching, from what I've been able to tell. Amazing jeans.

    Heheheh. Yeah, I'll be unpinning those posts after Monday. Just wanted to make sure that people saw those and didn't miss the opportunity before then. As for the purge... well, let's say that you would just be erased. No history that you existed... [​IMG] It'd be hard to purge whack you though, being one of CTGuy's Made Guys and all. I'd have to talk to the Don. Fok. Edit, oh yeah. Svens. They measure out to nearly exactly the exact leg and waist measurements on www.zoovillage.com (at least the 32/32s). They feel tighter though. because they sit considerably lower than RRs, about the same height as Olas. I haven't measured the rise (no tape or even ruler here!), but it is only about 10 inches. The leg feels slightly looser than the Olas due to the fact that they are a true straight leg (unlike the Ola, which has a nearly unperceivable bootcut). Happy now Ken?

    Studio D'Artisan SD-101 courtesy of xcoldricex (unwashed, unworn)

    Size: 34
    Waist: 17.5" across
    Front rise: 12.5"
    Back rise: 16"
    Inseam: 34.5"
    Leg opening: 9.25" across

    I'm wondering if I should have gotten the SD-103s since they seem a bit baggier than I thought, especially in the seat area. Hopefully a warm soak will fix that.
