    I did. As a fellow member said i should have sized up but i disagree. They were tight but they have already stretched after a day and im sure they will stretch a lot after 2 weeks. I always buy my denim tight tight. But also wouldn't size down as for example onyx :-D
    So yes, tts.

    I bought my usual size and they were one of the tightest out of the box. They stretched out comfortably after about 5 full wears. They are one of my favorite pairs currently.

    I meant JE true to size. I wear a 28 and they always start out really tight but stretch out to perfection. I did size up in my Nimbus and they fit great but a tad loose in the waste And I don’t mind

    How tall are you? Sahara is one of my favourite washes, they don’t stack like springs or Pompeii’s though (they are the baked in crease style). The inseam on mine is around 32” unless I pull them down

    I almost wish they re released them without the baked in creases, like the springs or coast 2’s

    At that height you should be fine. I took my normal JE size if that helps

    Mechanic jacket aka summer blouson just arrived. I’ll get a fit pic posted later. Jacket is nice but if you don’t like paint or cropped jackets then this isn’t for you. I’m glad it has pockets but it’s fairly thin with no liner so kind of like a denim overshirt. The sleeves seems wide but works well with this style. Stayed tts and it hits right at my waist and I can easily zip it up over a hoodie.

    Really like JEs new packaging with labeled paper now.
