    Hey guys,

    I recently purchased a pair of SLP 17.5 Distressed Denim Jeans
    http://www.mrporter.com/product/374183

    I got it in both a 30 and 31. I'm usually a 30' in Nudies thin finn washed denim which are 98% cotton, 2% elastate, So I never have to worry about the stretch and what not. However with these, they are 100% cotton, and I'm unsure how much they are going to stretch, and how long it will take for them to do so, after seeing so many posts about them not stretching much in the thigh etc.

    The 30's are quite tight throughout the entire jean, I can get the top bottom on but it feels much better with it unbuttoned at the moment. The 31's feel and fit almost exactly how my 30" Nudies feels except my Nudies are already stretched out. I'm just afraid that if I stick with the 30's they won't stretch to fit like my Nudies, or if I stick with the 31's they will stretch too much.

    Should I stick with the 30's or 31's?

    I thought you only liked the $5000 leather pants?

    I got my super destroyed ($750) SLP light blue denim in earlier this week. Not until after ordering them over the phone from an NY store and shipped to me that a friend said the super destroyeds ($750) are 14 cm, where the regular destroyed ($675) are 15.5.

    I'm normally a 32, so I went with a 34. The waist is a size big, thighs are fine BUT the legs are way too skin tight. Mind you they would stretch, I can't wear these with certain sneakers and boots. And I'd have to sag my pants for these to work in the first place. Now its either to sell them online, see what the return policy is, or sit on them.

    I had the same issue, I ended up returning them. I'm still sitting on a pair of 34's. I found that for 15.5 I need a size 33 waist for them to fit on my waist, but the thighs and legs are real tight.

    Only reason I did super destroyeds was because the regular destroyeds (what I wanted) was sold out in my size (33-34). If I had known in advance the super destroyeds were 14 cm I would've never bought them, instead, got the 32 regular destroyeds this store was sitting on and somehow stretch the waist out. I can do 15.5's, 14s I can't.

    I would've kept the 33's but I was uncertain on how much they would stretch around the thighs and legs.

    These were the ones I returned. Absolutely stunning in person, a lot more distressed.

    I had the opportunity to get the reg destroyed however I got it in the wrong size (32) at first thinking they would fit, but boy was I wrong. By the time I got the exchange to go through they were already soldout of the reg destroyed :(.

    If anyone has a pair of the destroyed (reg or super) or similar that doesn't fit them lmk. I'm not sure what size I'd be but I'm a 30/31 in Dior.

    I don't know how you guys wear your jeans but all the SLP denims fit very true to size. sizing up or down will set you up for discomfort, ill fits, and returns/exchanges especially if they have elastane / polyeurathane blends.

    Unless you're buying a pair of 19cm SLP expect tightness in the legs from the knees down with minimal stretch in those areas. waist and thighs fit fine after a couple wears.

    On the other hand I just picked up a pair of 100% Cotton MIJ SLP 19cm Raw Denim on Mr.Porter during the black friday sale. very pleased with my purchase! They fit exactly like my MIJ DH Raws but sits just a little bit higher on the hips. Went true to size. They're still stiff ofcourse and they will stretch out once i start wearing them hard.

    Long Inseams, ankle stacking, button fly, subtle details. very nice. will post fit pics soon.

    Thanks again for the great input! The 17.5 fit fits fine in the legs from the knee down in both the 30 & 31, the only difference is the bit of extra waist & thigh I get in the 31. I'm just afraid that the 31 will stretch too much and they won't fit as nice, at the same time I'm afraid that the 30's won't stretch enough for them to fit comfortably. :S

    They actually do stretch and loosen a decent bit to be fair. Illithid Dude was right. After about a week and a half or so, they almost feel like a second skin or something. They are surprisingly comfortable after a while!

    Most of the collection is too gaudy for my tastes, but I like the grey sweatshirt with the zipper around the neck, the black button down shirt with the vampire lips, and maybe the bomber jacket with the jewel encrusted vampire lips on the back. Maybe. Most of my money next season is going to go towards Balmain, which I think is actually a pretty decent, subdued (for Balmain) collection.
