    Are the measurements correct on the The Cast/Coast denim?

    Your model is a 31" waist and wears a Size 30. The Size 30 according to the chart is a 34" waist, so he sized up 3 inches?

    The Size 31 is also a 34' waist, with the only difference is an extra 0.25" in the thigh and identical everywhere else

    If i am a true 32" waist, what size should I be wearing? A Size 31 to down size 1 like the model from tagged size?

    The model used to wear a 29 in the coast, and some of the other jeans. I'm between a 31 and 32 and got the 29 because I prefer the slimmer fit and the waist will stretch.

    I would recommend size 30 if you like the slim/tight feel/look if not go with size 31.

    Thanks for your insight. I'll take a look at the thigh measurements when I'm home with a tape, that's probably going to dictate my size the most.

    I'm a 30 in the graphite and it fits perfect pretty much.

    Our model is actually a 29, we just updated that sizing advice. We recommend sizing down 1-2 sizes in the Coast.

    so excited. got the midnight hooded villain. long overdue for me. will probably be my most worn colorway of the villain.

    I got the coast as well. wanted to see the color in person. Been looking for a medium wash denim pant.

    Ive done this as well. pretty clean look.

    I have the Kith Classics bleeker sweat. How do those compare to Escobars in terms of fit?

    Post some pictures when you get them, I'm always curious as to how accurate the fades/whiskers/honeycombs look in person.

    John Elliot's site has the best pictures, but when I go to other retailers they don't seem to look nearly as good so I'm always curious.

    I'm going to hold off until they restock the Midnight Rue and get everything one shot.

    I do it all the time, literally 24/7. Best thing to study and run errands in. Sounds awful, but I'm in sweats and a sweatshirt at all times when I'm not at rotations.
