1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hey guys, I purchased a pair of PDC 'Ripper' jeans online, but they are a hair too small for me. I'll offer them here before listing them on ebay. Style is 2-LIT-88, size 30 waist (32" inseam, about) worn-out lighter shade of blue with white paint splatters and sewn-up 'tears'. Boot-cut. These come with the paper PDC style/info tag, as well as the $182 store price tag. I will sell them for $40, plus $6 shipping in the US. PM me for more photos. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    could you provide some more specific measurements?  How do they fit compared to the GTO, if you know?  
    What's the rise, the knee, and the leg opening?  Are they roomy in the seat? Zip fly?

    Oh, and where were they bought originally?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Rise is 9", Knee is 8.5", opening is 10". Thigh, just under crotch, is 11" around. 3-button fly, not including top button. They fit through the thighs similar to the GTO (slim), but the leg flare isn't as drastic. The seat isn't too roomy, but maybe this is just because they are generally a bit too snug on me. I also take a 31 in the GTOs, and these are just a bit too snug. Perhaps they might loosen up a bit after a few wearings, though.

    I purchased these on ebay. However, I've compared these to the 8 other pairs of PDCs I own, and I'm 99.9% sure they are authentic. Store tags look real, as does the paper tag. Size tag, PDC fly buttons, stitching, red/blue stripe on inside of seam, and construction all look kosher. I've never heard of fake PDCs before, and if someone did try and make a fake, I doubt the amount of hand-finishing required would be worth it. Kind of like a fake Oxxford suit.

    Thanks for all the info. I bought a pair of GTOs in a size 30, and the seat was too big. That's why I ask. Do these running smaller, or bigger? The rest of the measurements seem great.

    Thanks again.

    They seem to run just a bit smaller. I normally take a size 30 in PDC, but like I said, these were smaller than my other 30's in the seat and upper thigh area (I have bigger thighs from running).
