Thanks for the reply man, definitely understand that. However the difference is extremely noticeable when u lay them on top of each other. Waist fits pretty much exactly the same however just honestly seems like a different cut all together. The nimbus is literally tight around my calf where as I’d say this feels like baggy round there not even fitted to it. And yeah get that most people would probably prefer the baggier look nowadays but I don’t so yeah. Got these proxied from someone as I live in the uk so can’t return and try another pair and wouldn’t size down as the waist I don’t think would allow me to. Just disappointed🤷🏻‍♂️
Nimbus fits super slim. That’s the slimmest cast 2 I own (Avalons are the same way) Maybe due to the wash. I sized up on my nimbus now.

Any silhouettes besides the crew you guys would like to see in Replica?
+1 for a quarter zip

side note I would love to see the vintage heather grey color used on the folsom tee in a heavyweight la sweatpants release with cuffs that stay up. Not sure if it’s possible but it’s dream.

LA 26ers are a lot slimmer than i thought. I got a medium (i wear a 32 in cast/daze) and the waist is fine, but the legs really cling. Do they break in a bit?

thought the whole point of the heavier weight was preventing the notorious diaper butt bag?

sounds like i might need to size up...
The OGs never got “diaper butt bag.” That shouldn’t be an issue for you since this new version is using the same composition. Razor was definitely exaggerating with his assertion there. They don’t break in like crazy as far as stretching goes, but they do hold structure while relaxing to your body. Still, you should try the L.

The thighs and calves were tight but broke in and loosened up there noticeably. Also the cuffs aren’t tight at all after first wear .

The cuffs seem to be an issue for the newer version. It was definitely a strength of the OG.

theres no strength to the cuffs . My cashmeres you can set them and forget them for styling . These ones I can fit fingers in at my ankle.
