    Hey guys, so i've been meaning to purchase a pair of 1947 lvc's but im not to sure how to really size them, considering id like to soak them in the beginning and probably shrink them down. Typically my waist is about a 28. the only other help i can really give is that my APC petit standard sizing is a 26 and there pretty tightish even after wearing them for a couple of months already. for the lvc's i dont wanna reach petite standard fit but a more relaxed slim fit look. any ideas?

    My waist size is 30 and I had a pair of 30x34. I wore it before any soaking for about half a year, and it is about fit or tight fit. After soaking, it was very hard to button initially, but losen a bit to a tight fit. On other LVC I would say buying RAW true to size, but for the 47, I would recommend buying 1-2 inches larger because the butt and thigh of the 47 are much tighter than others ( I have a pair of 54 501z and 66 505 for comparison ).

    2 sizes up if you're going to wash or hot soak them.
