    The tagged size isn't the waistband measurement. The tag is lower than the waistband measurement because people will buy a brand if they say they're size 34 instead of another brand that says it's a 36 even though they're the same size.

    It applies to women's and lower-priced clothes mostly.

    5EP sizing question:

    I wear size 31 for the Nudie Regular Ralf (washed version).
    I wear size 30 for the Nudie Regular Ralf (raw version).

    If I'm going to buy the 5EP Low Down Boot (raw version), what size should I get?

    Thanks in advance.

    30 if you like a Ralf-like fit (on the relaxed side of SF-approved spectrum) and/or plan to wash them every once in awhile.

    29 if you like a slimmer fit and plan to wear them 9 months - 1 year before first wash, if ever.

    Your pick.

    Thinking about getting a gray pea coat or something along those lines, gonna need a new scarf or two to go with it... I'd probably be wearing it with raw denim and brown boots.

    Looking for ideas... Colours? Patterns? Brands (nothing too extravagant, $50-100 max)?

    I don't even know where to start.

    It sounds like they don't fit and you want to exchange them

    Can I get a gift card for Revolve?

    If not, what is another good online shop that has a first-timer's discount and can do gift cards?

    I may just end up going Bluefly.

    Thanks whacked!

    Another quick question on shrinkage:

    I want to go for maximum shrinkage before I take my new raw jeans to the tailor for hemming (I don't like to cuff or stack). What is the recommended procedure here?

    Did a search and it appears tumbling in the dryer inside-out for 30 minutes on the delicate cycle is a popular choice. Another choice is soaking in hot water. Can I skip the hot soak and go straight to the dryer procedure and still expect maximum shrinkage?
