Nudie RRDS Sizing Help

Which size would fit me best (post-stretch)? I wear a size 34 in Diesel (which is, as I'm sure you guys know, a vanity size because it's more along the lines of 35-36 inches) and tried on a pair of Flathead's in 34 but they were just too tight. I'm planning on picking up a size 36 in Flathead, should I do the same with RRDS or stay with my regular Diesel size?

well i have a pair of Diesel Viker Back's that say size 30 on them but they are wayyyy bigger than a normal 30 (they are actually getting tailored down now). although i believe the viker back model is supposed to be baggier in the back (hence the "back"), but im not sure. i think you are right about their "vanity sizing" tho. i have two pairs of nudie slim jims that fit AMAZING...they are both labeled size 31. im not sure about the regular ralfs. im guessing theyre supposed to be worn a bit baggier than the other nudies so maybe go with your REAL size (i.e. not the diesel size).

And yea', I'll either do what you suggested or find a shop that sells 'em and try them on there.

Yes, size down 1 from your normal, comfortable size. They'll stretch in no time. They should feel rather tight when you first put them on, but they'll end up being the most comfortable jeans you've ever owned once you break them in completely. It's kind of like wearing a nice pair of cardboard for the first couple of days...
