45 cm. This is after a wash and several wears, so they have probably stretched out a bit by now. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thank you. Can I also trouble you for the thigh measurement. Really appreciate it.

How's the front rise on the denim? Is it quite high? I find that if the rise is higher I usually have to take a smaller waist measurement. Is that the case for this pair as well?

First pair of century denim!?
🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯
Haha I know, right? I've been wanting a pair for awhile, but don't wear jeans *too* often so I was waiting for the right pair to come along. These definitely were the right pair to wait for.

Good point. @hoodog I hate to be a pain in the @ss. Would you have the front rise on the size 36? That is the last Q, I promise. Many thanks.

So my pair was size 38 and it looks like the front rise has clocked in at 13" so it's pretty high. I don't know how much they'll shrink after an initial cold wash/soak.

I imagine i could have actually squeezed into a 36, but glad I went with the 38 for a more relaxed fit.

The rise is higher than low, and the waist is similar to some other pants I've had.

They won't shrink. Or rather, they will shrink a tiny bit (as all cotton do) but they will easily stretch out to the original size with wear.

Thats good to know. Loving the fit of them right now. Really comfortable. Seems like the monkey cisco works well for me.

lol. Rise is 30 cm. Also, I don't believe you at this point, so the hem measures 21 cm.

LOL at 30cm the rise is higher than low indeed, but not higher than high

If I take 16inch waist across jeans usually, should I go with size 34?

I think general consensus for Kapital is that they run a bit small so go up a size.

Sorry buddy, but these questions are impossible for anyone of us to answer. Have a look at the measurements and compare with other stuff you have.

Sweet. Will you wear them at the next Drunk Posting Session™? 😉
